get by the first 5 minutes

Real Estate Agent with Exit IH 10 Realty

On friday I spoke to a crowd around 400. I don't remember ever speaking to a crowd that large. I am thinking back over the first few moments and I will say this, lots of thoughts where running through my head those last couple of minutes.

I had 2 openings planned one filled with laughter and one that was heart felt. The heart felt story was closer to my heart. I went with it minutes before the speach. I think it played well. I stood in front of the crowd and could not feel me left knee. I can tell you I did not enjoy the first 5 minutes of that speech. Those minutes where very long, however, once I hit my stride the next 45 minutes flew by.

I think the speech was very good. I don't think I will ever get real feedback, the point is hit your groove and it will role.

Rick,

Talking to a crowd of 400 is not a small feat, and you gotta be prepared. yo can't hit the groove if you are not prepared. Sudden things happen only to those who are very prepared. You, obviously, were.

Good for you

You have always possesed such poise and confidence that it is hard to imagine you uncomfortable in any situation. But I can see where 400 people would cause some butterflies! In the time that I have known you I have come to admire not only your personable demeanor but also your ability to exude a sense of believability. I feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with and learn from you and am looking forward to the future with Exit. I'm glad to hear things went well for you in D.C.. I knew you could do it!!
