In short, last night was amazing.
Even though it wasn’t my first foray into public speaking, last night was the first time I took center stage where my content had absolutely nothing to do with my job in advertising.
So instead of discussing strategy or my unique insights on branding; I decided to go in a completely opposite direction, embrace a new level of vulnerability and discuss my challenges with Toxic Masculinity.
To say the least…s*%t got real.
But with all the love and support I felt from my friends in the audience, it was the perfect moment for stepping out of my comfort zone.
I’m super geeked because I know this is only the beginning. As I continue to do the work to hone this skill, I’m confident that bigger and better things are on the horizon. - 5 hours ago
