Use a speechwriter once. You’ll find out how somebody else does it.

I thought I knew what clothes to wear. Until I made an appointment with an image consultant.

She gave me insights that changed the way I buy clothes.

I thought I knew how to sit and stand. Until I started doing the Alexander technique.

My teacher revealed some of my bad habits.

I thought I knew how to manage my money. Until I got an accountant who insisted I use some software.

The results were so effective, I no longer needed my accountant.

Just by getting a bit of humility, and admitting that I didn’t know it all, I opened myself up to some new and fascinating experiences.

It’s the basic stuff. The stuff we assume we know how to do, that causes us problems.

Why not use a speechwriter once?

Spend some money.

Find out if you’re as good as you think you are.
