"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
– Maya Angelou
I am Christine Harper, and for most of my life, I've had a passion for public speaking. I'll never forget I won my first speech contest in elementary school. I was only in the fifth grade, and as I looked at the other students, some were already preparing for high school, and I gazed out into the audience, and I imagined my father saying, "Christine - you can do this. Now get in there and show them how it's done. You're a Harper."
"Christine - you can do this. Now get in there and show them how it's done. You're a Harper!"
I bought home more than a trophy that day and went on to study public speaking in college before graduating with a degree in sociology. I later allowed my public speaking success to guide me up the corporate ladder of IBM as a technical sales professional. I don't know which one made me more successful, my knowledge of our IBM product line, my ability to make mundane and technical subjects attractive and fun for the audience, or my ability to stand up and speak with confidence, courage, and charisma.
"The most notable factor for success is believing in yourself. Believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, and believing you'll have it."
I like to say it was public speaking, at least that's what I believed as I sat across the table from my dad in New York City, at the executive leaders conference many years later. I got to take him there as my esteemed guest on one of the many annual sales trips where I was recognized for being a top IBM sales executive.
I felt I owed it to him because it was his encouragement to stand up and speak all those years ago that helped me become the lady I am today. The one who learned to "mind the gap" and "never give up" - I love him. Before his passing and my decision to walk away from corporate sales to focus on life and chase my dreams of being a coach, mentor, and author, my dad taught me...
"We're all blessed and highly favored. But only if we have the courage to get up, stand up, and get back up again when we fall, and take advantage of the few opportunities life opens up for us."
I want to offer you an opportunity to join my 8week Aspiring Speakers Mastermind Group. It's an opportunity to join myself and a few others in a small virtual online setting to practice and rehearse your public speaking and receive valuable coaching and support for a fraction of the cost of one-on-one coaching. It's an excellent opportunity.

"Every time we get anxious we get better at being anxious. Every time we give an alibi for not pursuing our goals we get farther away from our goals."
"Anybody can wish for their dreams to come true, and most do, but only a few know that a definite plan, plus a burning desire for the object of their dreams, are the only dependable means of manifesting your dream."
