How to Overcome Stage Fright


A funny and very endearing TED Talk by folk singer Joe Kowan about experiencing and overcoming severe stage fright.

Kowan describes his discomfort as well as his unique and creative strategy for coping with it – performing a song that confronts it head on.

I’m reminded of Brene Brown’s advice on coping with shame; by admitting to our vulnerabilities, others see us as authentic, and appreciate our humanity more than if we try to mask our fears.

Bravo, Joe!
