Oh man oh man oh man. I was asked last night if I would speak tonight. The person who was scheduled to speak became ill.

I gladly said that I would be honored, but I gotta tell ya I am nervous as hell. This will be my first time to tell my story, and even though I don't have problems speaking in front of people, I'm a little worried I won't fill up the 45 minutes.

Wish me luck ;)

Wishing you luck! As my sponsor would say to me "Be sure to welcome the newcomers!" That's the most important thing that I'll have to say. :lol:

It's not nerves, Texas. It's the Good Lord shaking the truth out of ya'! Like Dallas said, welcome the newcomers and let it flow. You'll do a fine job.

Hub, we didn't hear back from him.
Did he survive it? :lol:

I remember the first time I gave a talk. It nearly killed me! :lol:

I'd say he did. Bet he helped someone, too.

I can relate, Dallas! I remember my first Lead, too, and my Sponsor telling me, "Just get up there and tell the truth!" I still here that voice today, no matter where I'm speaking, or who I'm speaking to.
