"Just to let you know, I followed one simple suggestion in your
book Ten Non-techie Ways to Market Your Book Online. I clicked on
"Submit article - professional women." I emailed an ezine for women
lawyers and lo and behold, they would like an article on careers!
It is SO nice to get solid info I can use instead of the usual hype."
Thomas Leonard of Coachville.com likes Judy's articles: "Read today's
issue of the Coaching Scoop featuring Judy Cullins and "Sell More
Books With a Powerful Back Cover," where she explains the often
overlooked impact the back cover of a book can have on its sales.
In this column, she explores the biggest mistakes and best solutions
to designing a powerful back cover."

Always write your own introduction, e-mail it ahead of time to the
introducer and bring it with you too.
Type it in 18 point and triple space it, bold or underline the words
you want emphasized.
When you accept a speaking engagement use a pre program questionnaire
so that you can customize for each group you speak too. Ask the
program chair or meeting planner to answer your questions. Ask questions
like: What are the most important changes happening in your industry
or company? What three key points do you want stressed in my talk?

ELIMINATING SPEAKER JITTERS
©2003 Sandra Schrift
1. Nervousness is fear of failure. Here is the secret of conquering
anxiety. Become message-centered and audience-centered, not self-centered.
Stop thinking of yourself, and start thinking of your message.
2. If you are thoroughly prepared, your internal nervousness seldom
shows. Prepare 150%.
3. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. Talk out loud, and walk around
while you practice. Use the same physical energy you plan to use
on the day of your presentation. Practice in the car. If you can
concentrate while driving, you will be able to pull it from your
unconscious when are you in front of the group. Make your points
sound off-the-cuff and conversational.
4. Don't be perfect - give yourself permission to make mistakes.
People are not perfect in real life.
5. Remember, you want to be nervous. It can be a positive reaction.
You don't want to eliminate the butterflies in your stomach; you
want to get them to fly in formation. When that happens, you will
have converted your stress into speaking power!
6. Most of all - enjoy yourself and have fun.
