      • Don’t practice too much!
    • Reason 3 - I’m afraid everyone will find out that I’m a fraud

      • The audience are on your side
      • ‘ Fess up!
    • Reason 6
      • “ I will ask something that everyone else understands. I will look like a complete idiot.”
    • Reason 6 – I will ask something that everyone else understands. I will look like a complete idiot.
      • Most other people are thinking exactly the same as you
      • It’s their problem not yours
      • You are helping someone in the audience
    • Reason 6
      • “ It feels artificial. It should feel like a conversation, I hate the awkward feeling.”
    • Reason 7 – It feels artificial. It should feel more like a conversation.
      • The audience hate it too!
