How to be Less Self-Conscious About Speaking?

I used to be self-conscious about speaking. “What??? Really?? You make videos every day, and you look confident.” I wasn’t always a confident speaker. English was not my first language. Marathi, which is an Indian language, was my first language. Because of that, I went to speech and ESL classes for seven years. Teachers, the other kids, and my family had a hard time understanding me at times. I repeated myself constantly, especially over the phone. I had a hard time with my R pronunciation. My friends used to mimic how I spoke every time I was in a group speaking up. I still remember the ridicule I received year after year for fifteen years; elementary, middle, high school, & college. When I was

I Didn’t Kiss a Girl Until I was 18!!

“Shelomo, you are so social.” “Shelomo, you’re naturally confident.” “Shelomo, you can go to any room filled with strangers and talk to anyone.” I laugh every time someone says that. Why? Because I had to work extremely hard to develop confidence. For the first eighteen years of my life, I didn’t kiss a single girl. I thought no girl would ever date me. I was short, small, talked funny, wasn’t athletic, didn’t have the best style, other kids always made fun of me, and I didn’t have money. Why would a girl date someone like me? It was in my head. When I had my first kiss the summer before college, I felt like I was on top of the world. I would think

My Journey in Becoming a Full-Time Entrepreneur

One homework assignment in Middle School was asking us, what do you want to be when you grow up? This homework assignment was a difficult assignment for me because I had no idea! Who knows what they want to be when they grow up in middle school? I thought long and hard about it. I ran across a word called ‘entrepreneur.’ I was curious about what it meant. I looked it up. Here is the definition I found “one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.” A fancier term for a business owner. I knew from then on; I wanted to become that. During class, the other students shared, “I want to become a doctor, policeman, nurse, engineer, teacher.”

Morning Rituals for Success – 3 Daily Morning Rituals

Morning Rituals for Success – 3 Daily Morning Rituals I remember having anxiety. My therapist asked me about my morning rituals. I said, “Hmmm. I press snooze like fifteen times. I rush out of bed, realizing I am late to work, quickly brush my teeth, quickly put my clothes, and have a protein bar for breakfast all within 20 – 30 minutes. She started laughing. I was confused because I thought a therapist was supposed to come with no judgment. She said, “The only reason you have anxiety is that you are on the go right from the start of the day. You need to have morning routines and rituals to set your day up for success.” She was right. The morning is one
