Episode 12: Talk About Public Speaking with Alexia Vernon
In this episode, I’m talking all about public speaking with my own public speaking coach, Alexia Vernon. Alexia and I have something big in common–we love the word “moxie.” In fact, Alexia loves it so much, she included it in her book title: Step Into Your Moxie. We chat about Alexia’s background in public speaking, being masterful with your message, why pre-speech nerves are good, and more. So if you’ve ever wondered if you could be the on that Wedding MBA stage, listen in!
