Guest column for women's magazine

I'm going to start writing a guest column for a local women's magazine, starting with the Winter issue coming out in December. Here's the current issue of Woman Magazine, and here's the summer issue. (Woman Magazine is a quarterly insert in the Santa Barbara News-Press.)

I'm really excited about this opportunity that literally fell into my lap after I mistakenly sent an unintended e-mail to the editor (I realize that "mistakenly" and "unintended" are redundant - but I'm trying to emphasize that this was a truly embarrassing but fortuitous happenstance). I love writing, but sometimes it's hard to make myself write unless I have a specific purpose and, preferably, a deadline.

I've got two ideas percolating right now: the first would focus on New Year's resolutions to overcome public speaking fear and become a more effective speaker. The second would be about breaking the ice with strangers at holiday parties. You know those parties you end up at where, somehow, you don't know a single person? Or the only person you do know has a little problem with making introductions?

I'll post a link when it comes out in December.

Are you an entrepreneur or professional who's looking for better results from your speaking? Are you hoping to build credibility and visibility for your business or cause?
