Are you struggling with the fear of public speaking even though you’re generally confident as an experienced and knowledgeable professional or entrepreneur? Does your imposter syndrome kick in when all eyes are on you? Do you find it difficult to speak with authority and assertiveness in meetings and presentations? If this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place!

The reason I know the feeling so well is that I used to be terrified of public speaking myself. As a software engineer turned high-level manager turned entrepreneur, it took me years to finally overcome my public speaking fears.

And I can tell you right now, it had nothing to do with common advice like pushing through fear or practicing endlessly. Instead, I developed genuine speaking confidence rather than “pretend” confidence, and I started coaching others on how to do the same.

The Confidence Within podcast is a weekly run of bite-sized, digestible public speaking confidence tips, strategies, and expert-led career and business advice to help you outdo your long-sought professional goals and develop unshakeable confidence within.

    3 Reasons why “fake it till you make it” will not improve your public speaking confidence

    3 Reasons why “fake it till you make it” will not improve your public speaking confidence

    Still trying to make sense of the “fake it till you make it” advice suggested to you by coaches or random people on the internet? You don’t have to. Especially if your intention is to become a confident speaker.
    Because for one, as the phrase says, you’re faking it, even if you believe it’s only until you make it.
    The question is, do you want to BE a confident public speaker or LOOK LIKE a confident public speaker?
    My own speaking experience and the research I’ve done on public speaking over all these years have taught me that faking it has much greater negative repercussions than you can possibly think of.
    By only learning to appear confident, rather than feeling confident, you miss out on an opportunity to develop real confidence and never truly conquer your fear. The quickest way to improve your career or business and personal life is to build genuine confidence from the inside. I talk about this at length in my brand-new episode of the Confidence Within podcast.
    For over five years now, I’ve been teaching people how to conquer the fear of public speaking for good and speak with genuine confidence, authority, and brilliance. Learn more about my Brilliant Speakers Academy® coaching program at www.BrilliantSpeakersAcademy.com
    Until next week!

    How I Conquered the Fear of Public Speaking: My Own Journey

    How I Conquered the Fear of Public Speaking: My Own Journey

    I was ten years old when I ran off stage in tears after my first major failure in public speaking.
    I’d memorized a poem that I had to recite in front of 1,000s of people. And you probably already guessed it: despite my best efforts, I froze on stage. Words wouldn’t come out of my mouth. The faces in the crowd dissolved into darkness. My legs were shaking. I was drenched in hopeless fear. I ran off stage in tears, not knowing that this fear would stay with me for years.
    While I had a successful professional and entrepreneurial career and felt confident in my abilities at work, the fear of public speaking held me back from fully showing up and performing my best. That was when I decided to put in the effort to do something about the fear.
    Guess what the first thing I learned in my journey to becoming a masterful public speaker was? To NOT believe in the myths (yes, myths!): “Fake it till you make it”, “Keep practicing and you’ll get better”, “Just push through the fear” (there are countless more).
    Head over to this episode as I share my journey with you.

    You’re already confident. So why does this confidence evaporate when you have to speak publicly?

    You’re already confident. So why does this confidence evaporate when you have to speak publicly?

    Here’s something not a lot of us talk about. A fear of public speaking doesn’t imply a lack of general confidence, only a lack of speaking confidence. Failing to uncover this simple fact, the majority of people go about taking confidence training, workshops, and masterclasses thinking it will help them speak better publicly. And then they’re surprised when the next time they speak in a meeting, give a presentation to a client, or talk on stage, their fear of public speaking is still as bad as ever. And though general confidence training can help to an extent, it’s essential to understand that the solution to speaking anxiety lies much deeper.
    That’s why in this episode of the Confidence Within podcast, we’re dissecting speaking confidence and the challenges around building it. This is crucial for your success, as developing unshakeable speaking confidence is the #1 way to uplevel your career and life.
    For over five years now, I’ve been coaching clients on how to conquer the fear of public speaking for good and show up with genuine confidence, authority, and brilliance. If you would like to learn more about my coaching framework and methods, head over to my Brilliant Speakers Academy® coaching program at  www.brilliantspeakersacademy.com.

    Podcast Trailer: Welcome to the Confidence Within podcast

    Podcast Trailer: Welcome to the Confidence Within podcast

    Hello my friends, this is Victoria Lioznyansky, and you’re listening to the Confidence Within podcast. The reason I created this podcast is to help ambitious professionals and entrepreneurs like yourself develop unshakeable speaking confidence, or as I call it, the confidence within.
    I know that so many of you struggle with the fear of public speaking. Which is crazy because most of you are true experts in what you do, right? And if I asked you right now if you’re generally a confident person, you would most likely answer ‘yes’. But something happens when you find yourself in a situation where all eyes are on you and you have to speak publicly. All of a sudden, your confidence evaporates and the imposter syndrome kicks in. Sound familiar?
    Well, the reason I know the feeling so well is that I used to be terrified of public speaking myself. As a software engineer turned high-level manager turned entrepreneur, I struggled to make sense of my speaking anxiety and figure out a solution for myself. It took me years to finally learn how to overcome my public speaking fears. And I can tell you right now, it had nothing to do with “fake it till you make it”, pushing through fear, or practicing endlessly. Instead, I discovered how to shift the way I viewed myself, my audience, and public speaking in general. I learned how to build this unshakable CONFIDENCE WITHIN and how to turn it ON when I needed to speak with confidence and authority.
    So if you’re a successful professional or entrepreneur who is nonetheless struggling with the fear of public speaking, then this podcast is for you. This show is all about igniting your inner confidence, learning to show up with genuine authority and brilliance, and becoming the best version of yourself.
    I can’t wait for you to dive in, and I’ll see you in the first episode.
