Show Notes

Fears are bullies. In today's episode, we talk about the real and perceived bullies in our lives. We explore the need to find approval only in ourselves!

Our guest used to have a fear of public speaking. Not a rational fear, like so many have. No, this fear was crippling—to the point where the very thought of it would send her into the proverbial fetal position, paralyzed by anxiety and insecurity. So, how did she end up with a 20+ year career in the news business speaking to an audience of millions every day? She followed her passion.

Kerry pursued a bachelor’s degree in Speech and Communication Studies in Journalism from Clemson University, where she had no choice but to face her public-speaking phobia head-on. Kerry was unwilling to let anxiety and self-doubt stand in the way of following a career that fueled her life’s true passion. Over time, with hard work and a splash of self-confidence, Kerry didn’t just kick that once crippling fear to the curb. She turned it into one of her core strengths.
