Strangely enough, during the pandemic I got to speak and give more presentations than ever before. Zoom made it possible for me to get involved in activism, the indie publishing scene, entrepreneurship, and more.
Prior to Covid, I had only given a few talks. I had given an art talk at an exhibit opening and a few academic conferences. But with Covid, I found myself pursuing more and more things I never had the chance to given my schedule and work commitments.
I don’t necessarily dislike public speaking, or have a great fear of it, like my husband does. When I had the opportunity to share about my small publishing business at a local organization, I jumped at the chance. It ended up being a wonderful evening where I met so many great women. A lot of women shared their stories and it was inspiring to listen to how everyone has their own passion and it’s up to us to pursue it, and support one another.
