CEO Chatter: Journey to Self-Love Speech

Greetings Chatters, 

I wanted to share my speech from the Glambitious Guide to Self-Love, Peace, & Confidence book launch last night. I hadn’t spoken publicly where I needed (or thought I needed) a speech in almost a year, so I was a little anxious all last week. I was both excited and worried because I do get nervous when speaking. Plus, while self-love is a topic I am passionate about, I think I kind of downplay myself and my experience when talking about it and find it a little hard to articulate what I think. 


I had been writing my speech in my head for days before I finally took the time to type it up on my phone, and to be honest, I was so into watching a series on Netflix while also being over the whole anxiety thing, I just wrote what came to me at the moment as I read and reread what I’d written. 


And to be honest, I am very proud of myself, but I’m even more proud of how I did when I performed it. I actually tried rapping some J. Cole lyrics at the end, and I was so scared that the women would be laughing at me, but then I remembered that this was a video. 


Anyway, you all can see it for yourselves in the video included here. The women watching at the time may not have known how special this moment was for me, but I can share that with you all. While I love the work that I do behind the scenes, there is something freeing about stepping in front of the camera or stepping on stage and seeing others resonate with you.


I didn’t know how much I missed it, but I will definitely be seeking out more opportunities. 


Feel free to share your thoughts below in the comments.
