Excellent advice. I’ll have to try to find expertise and an audience, then I’m on my way! I wish this had been put so succinctly years ago (it may have been, but I missed it or it me). Thank you.
As one of those freaks—brilliant is too far a stretch—who is great at giving talks without much prep (but awkward one-on-one haha), I would have you know that I'm reading this because YOU wrote it, and not for any other reason. Your writing is always crisp, concise and informative. I never feel like you're talking at me, but rather, with me. Thank you for being such a delightful read, and your pointers are practical and apt. It's also awesome that you know and are committed to improving your perceived weaknesses. Your latest TED Talk was 👌 and hit the sweet spot. Cheesy pun totally intended!
