And here’s a bio:

Linda Ugelow is a speaking confidence coach and movement specialist with an uncommon approach to overcoming the fear of speaking. Formerly stricken with public speaking fear herself, she now helps entrepreneurs, business owners, and corporate leaders to transform their experience of speaking from dread to delight wherever they speak: online or on stage, in the media or the meeting room. Linda holds a master’s degree in Expressive Therapy/Movement Studies and has performed internationally for over three decades with the women’s world music group, Libana, as a singer, bassist, percussionist, and principal dancer. She hosted the TV show Women Inspired and is the author of the book, Delight In The Limelight: Overcome Your Fear of Being Seen and Realize Your Dreams.

Linda Ugelow’s story of going from being terrified of public speaking to being a sought-after public speaking coach was so inspiring.

She talks about how our experiences as children can set us on a path of fear that we don’t even know we can change.

And Linda is the reason I will (someday!) be on TikTok.
