I’m about to share a recent public moment that bothered me . . .   

While watching a video clip from my recent appearance on the Pretty Intense podcast with Danica Patrick—an experience I thoroughly enjoyed—I couldn’t help but notice something: I kept saying a particular word. And not just once or twice.

Over the course of just a couple minutes, I couldn’t even keep my total in the single digits.

As someone who’s spent an entire career in public speaking and content creation, the more I said this word, the more the demons in my mind went into “media frenzy press conference mode.”

Prepare yourself: This is an honest reenactment of how embarrassment plays out in our heads. I hope this gives you a laugh and also helps you realize that you can take something like this and use it to turn a mortifying moment into an opportunity for growth.
