Now that I’ve got the time nailed down I can finally announce my first official speaking engagement! I’m so excited! I always thought of speaking as something I wanted to do, but something that wouldn’t happen until far, far into the future. Like with writing, I assumed I had to have some kind of degree or special permission to get started, but when a friend asked me if I wanted to apply to present at a conference with her, I filled out the application and realized I had more experience to offer than I thought. Ultimately, my friend and I didn’t get chosen for the conference, but it encouraged me to apply to other places.
Being a singer and dancer, I’ve spent my entire life on stage, and I’ve been known to dissolve a wedding to tears. (I’ve also been known to be a Maid of Honor more than I would have ever imagined.) I spout off (probably unsolicited) advice to my friends all the time and I finally have the opportunity to bring all those things together! Well, I hope I don’t make anyone cry but I will be talking about navigating Twitter and Facebook so it’s possible.
So without further ado, if you’re in or near Fort Collins, Colorado, here’s where you can find me:
