"I went along to the two day workshop with the thought that... I really disliked how I felt and performed when speaking in front of an audience, especially when under the spotlight and speaking about my artwork... but I had a burning desire to overcome this so I was intrigued that the 'Courageous Speaking Intensive' promised to address all my concerns and more.
I loved the intimate atmosphere of having the workshop held in a friends home, and with only 5 other participants it felt like each one of us was given a chance to be heard but not overwhelmed as can happen in larger gatherings.
Margaret explained things in a unique and very informative way.... I went away after the second day not quite sure where I was going to take the information I had just learned... I knew I had to fine tune a few things and Mz Margz generously offered to do a follow up phone conversation with me... so a few weeks later we had that chat... and by the end of the hour I had a bunch of amazing ideas that Mz Margz had the brilliance to glean from my speaking about my artwork; highlighting things I didn't even realise I could use to inspire others & numerous workshop ideas.
I am so grateful for that valuable advice and most especially the way Margaret has the gift of seeing the diamonds in the rough, and being so quick and loving to shine the light on them.
That evening after speaking to M. I had a brainstorming session with a friend and put all I'd learned to use and came up with my own unique workFun/shop outline... my friend Linda had the wisdom to make me set a date... so on 23 Jan 2010 I held my first funshop... and thankfully my friend Mel had the foresight to catch it on film... and thanks to YouTube... I can share the joy and be reminded of how my stepping into my joy made each participant and myself feel fabulous. Thank you!"
