Right now I'm in the process of getting ready to launch (in October!) my new Elite Speakers Mastery and Mentoring Program, a program to bring together an intimate group of advanced and experienced speakers for coaching, accountability, brainstorming, critique and community. I'm super excited about it, and it's taking up all my mental energy in the planning! (If you want to be notified when this program goes live, please get on my mailing list here: http://www.coachlisab.com/. Sign up on the right for my free e-book and you'll get the scoop when the program launches!)
In lieu of writing my own post, I thought I would share two recent posts I read that really resonated with me.
Last month, I participated in a telesummit for therapists who are looking to grow their businesses and I, of course, spoke on public speaking. In the Facebook group for the telesummit, everyone posted their most recent or favorite blog posts, and these two seemed to go together.
They're both about ways of dealing with negative thinking; the first, turning the negative into positive, and the second, asking questions to validate or invalidate your negative perceptions.
Both are really great articles and very pertinent to the kinds of negative thinking I hear from would-be speakers who have a million reasons why they can't get on stage.

Next week I'm off to Alicia Forest's Online Business Breakthough Workshop (my second time), so I won't be posting. See you the week after!
