ENCORE: They're Going to Hate This & Think I'm Full of Shit

Mar 12, 2017

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

"Everyone is going to hate this and think I am full of shit.'

That's me. That's the voice booming inside my head every time I step on stage at an event. Every time I speak up in a meeting. Every time I present work or paddle out for a surf. For a guy who brims with self-confidence outwardly, that awful internal pep talk reverberates over and over again, perpetually casting doubt, challenging me to prove it wrong.

Jumping off from the hugely popular Fuck No, Shit Yeah, Damn Right sessions, 2017's talk is full of insight, inspiration, and imposter complexes - with every laugh, tear, and expletive focused on using personal doubt and internal perspective to fuel creativity and success.

If you have the same shitty life coach, you should come, it'll probably be great. Though I fucking doubt it.
