Have you been speaking for free and you loathe the fact that phenomenal speakers are lugging home outrageous amounts for speaking?

Are you considering going into public speaking full time?

Do you feel the pangs of fear that make your knees buckle and your speech-slurred whenever you stand before people to speak?

Are you often confused on how to properly pronounce some English words and that makes you look like as a wanna-be?
