Today, we’re going to get a little vulnerable. Like one of my favorite authors preaches, vulnerability is not weakness, but rather “the core, the center, of meaningful human experiences.”

Facing Fears

First off, there’s a statistic that claims the fear of public speaking is number one, even above death, for most people. I am one of those people. When I was offered the opportunity to give a lecture on social media at The Morean Arts Center, it was bittersweet. I was nervous, but I also had to say, “yes, absolutely.” I knew when I branched out on my own that public speaking would be part of the deal. So, here we are.

To make a long story short, I gave a “Social Media for Artists” talk at the MAC on September 29th. I presented an hour-long, interactive session, and then we had a great Q&A after that.

Now that I’ve scaled the first hurdle in this race, I can truthfully attest to the fact that facing fears is absolutely terrifying. However, it is important to remember that the weight of the reward is much more vast than that of the fear itself.

Check out the recap on the H2H Social blog, here.

Talking Soccer

Being a soccer coach is such a huge part of my life; not in the sense of time, but in the sense of fulfillment. I’ve realized that to live a full life, I must be involved with this game that I love so much.

I was really honored to have The18 reach out for an interview, so I could be published as a ‘Featured Coach.’ I have been a reader of The18 for quite some time, and really enjoy their stories and content. So, when they reached out, I couldn’t have been more excited.

One of my favorite quotables:

“Find your muse, and keep going.”

Here’s the whole article.

Other Updates

In addition to the growth of H2H Social, I am excited to help two organization I admire and love, grow their social media communities: USF Alumni and TEDx Oldsmar.

As always, here are some videos I created for the salon in September:
