From Stage Fright to the Spotlight with Natalie Workman - Ep #40

 

You might NEVER guess it now, but Natalie Workman, the host of the WorkWoman podcast used to be paralyzed by her fear of public speaking.  For years she stayed on the sidelines allowing others to take the spotlight while she built her career behind the scenes.

Last year she invited me to her home to talk about private coaching.
