I ran into my old piano teacher this weekend and she couldn't resist telling the story of how I was so shy when I was young.
During one of my first piano recitals - I was probably 11 years old - I was scheduled to perform first. I was so afraid that I hid behind my mom and would not go up to the piano! I made my teacher get some other students perform first, and only after that did I decide that I could play.
I finally crept out from behind my mom and played my piece in front of the audience. Everytime I see my old piano teacher she asks how I went from that little girl to backpacking East Africa!
THAT is how shy I was.
Now, I've taught myself how to network and put myself out into the world, in a way that opportunities regularly come to me. One of my new mentors, Bobby Umar (4x TED Speaker andInc. Magazine Top 100 Leadership Expert) invited me to speak at his signature Toronto Event, Discover Your Personal Brand 2015.
If I can go from a little girl who was too shy to play at her own piano recital to becoming an award-winning international speaker and Youtuber, I know that anything is possible for you too.
