As you know by now, I subscribe to Michael Hyatt’s Lead to Win blog and last week’s podcast was about FEAR and specifically facing our fears. Michael’s daughter and business partner, Megan, shared her fear of public speaking and how she battles this fear in a career that puts her in front of large audiences. She posits five actions to overcoming her (and your) fear. CLICK HERE to hear Megan’s advice for Facing Your Fears—it is worth the 33 minutes! I promise!
At last week’s Entrepreneur Workshop, Dan Jourdan, our guest speaker, educated and entertained us with some valuable information on successful selling. One way to face the fear of selling (especially cold calling) is to SMILE! Dan says “SMILING WILL MAKE YOU MONEY!” I will go a step further and say that putting on a smile gives you confidence even when you are not confident! Ross Rossin shared with us earlier this year that a smile builds bridges. And, SMILING IS FREE! Another piece of Dan's advice, DO WHAT'S FREE! Go ahead--just SMILE BIG for 10 seconds right now and see how great you feel!
Bring your SMILE to Roswell Rotary this week!
P.S. This week, Rodney Cook Jr. will update us on the building of the Rodney Cook, Sr. Park in Historic Vine City which is designed as a center for peace and dedicated to honoring the lives of Atlanta’s civil rights leaders. These leaders faced their fears and changed America forever. Be sure to join us!
P.S.S. Don't forget to sign-up to volunteer at the 23rd Annual Roswell Rotary Relays. It is a huge track meet at Roswell High School and lots of fun and fellowship with your Roswell Rotary friends! See Bruce and Stacy on Thursday!
