My First Keynote Speach, Yikes!

When I do a convention or a signing I think I drink a gallon of water. So to do a keynote address is a bit overwhelming. So send me some good and loving thoughts for me. I will be a keynote speaker at the Marketing Mastery World Summit.  As soon as I know more info I will let you know; Marketing Mastery World Summit Speaker on September 15-19;
