Marianne Wows 3C’s Luncheon

Earlier this morning, Marianne Love posted this: The day has come. It's been nearly a year since Betty Cheeley called me up and asked me to speak about my book "Lessons with Love" to the 3 C's Book Club of Coeur d'Alene. If all goes well, by shortly after 10 a.m., I'll be standing at the podium in one of the coference bays at The Coeur d'Alene Hotel. A potentially large number of women, many of them Coeur d'Alene's shakers and doers, will be sitting there looking back at me with expectations. I anticipate several trips to the bathroom before that moment. And, Betty knows to plan her Oly and Lena joke to sunchronize with the last time she sees me head for the john. More here.

DFO: Now, former colleague Erica Curless said Marianne not only drove from Sandpoint in this miserable weather but she wowed some 100 women waiting for her at the Coeur d'Alene Resort. Seems Merry Hucksters aren't scared of a few snowflakes.

Question: Are you afraid of public speaking?
