Back in July, this quote by Rick Friedman got posted in the From Hostage to Hero FB group:
“Fear is unprofessional.”
And even though I gave context for the quote in my podcast, and used Rick’s analogy of why he said it, people.had.thoughts.
LOTS of thoughts.
I’ve been DYING to comment on this ever since, because here’s the thing: Fear is TOTALLY normal. It’s also TOTALLY optional.
And if that statement pisses you off, you most definitely need to listen to this podcast.
I promised to share my big learnings from my medical leave and this podcast is the first of many.
Here’s the gist: For YEARS, maybe even my entire life, I’ve carried around this thing called “angst.”
I’ve tried to get rid of it through therapy, through coaching, through self-help books and a myriad of other things, but it never left.
If you too carry around your own angst, you won’t want to miss this podcast episode.
After a 12-week medical leave, I’m back at work and back at the microphone.
I’ve got a lot of people to thank, and some updates to give you.
But I also want to tell you about my last 12 weeks, the big revelation I had, and what this means for the podcast episodes to come.
It’s so good to be back.
What do jurors need at the end of trial?
Jurors have gotten a lot of information over trial, but now they need the tools to fight for you in the verdict room.
In this podcast episode I’ll show you how to empower jurors by returning to a very important part of your opening statement, bringing jurors full circle at the end of trial.
Give it a listen.
