During a speaking engagement at Razorfish, an audience member asked, “How are you able to let loose and be so free and vulnerable when presenting?” My answer was, my sense of freedom and total abandon comes from the fact that I’m performing for an audience of one. I’m not performing for the crowd. I’m performing for ME.

When you’re trying to please the crowd, it’s hard to feel free and #BEcourageous. When you’re worried about what others are thinking and if you’re being judged, it makes you feel nervous and self-conscious. When it’s time to give your next presentation or performance, relax and break free like you’re the only one in the audience.
