Episode 5: Public Speaking!
Grace and Alvina talk about their weeks—Grace was sick and lost her voice! Alvina had a busy week with Sales Conference.
Grace and Alvina talk about how Sales Conference at a publishing company works, and how author Chris Colfer joined them as a guest.
They take a trip down memory lane and remember when Grace was the LBYR guest to the Sales Conference for A BIG MOONCAKE FOR LITTLE STAR.
And for “what’s on their minds,” Grace and Alvina talk about and how they’ve both developed as public speakers when it doesn’t come naturally to either of them. They talk about how much they prepare and practice. Alvina talks about how she overcame her fear of public speaking by attending the Landmark Forum!
They end with what they’re grateful for. Grace is grateful for her voice back, and is grateful for feeling healthy after being sick. Alvina is also grateful for her health, and feels like she’s in the best shape of her life.
