About This Class

Do you have a fear of public speaking?

I mean a real physiological reaction to public speaking that actually causes you to sweat, shake, talk too fast, forget what you’re going to say, or even not be able to speak at all?

Does it cause you bad feelings, embarrassment, humiliation, or lost opportunities?

I’ve got some surprising news for you…you’re not alone. 

The fear of public speaking ranks number one in the minds of the majority of the people on this planet.  

According to the Muse, the BIGGEST FEAR of all humans is public speaking.

For millions of people, the fear of public speaking ranks even higher than the fear of death or even disease. 

They end up with low self-esteem, fearing speaking in general, public or not, planned or spontaneous. 

Even though they have great ideas, they struggle to articulate them in front of a group of people.

Nelson Mandela once said: 

  • "The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.“                   

To help you conquer your fear of public speaking and go from phobic to epic presentations, we created…

Calm: Phobic to Epic: How to Conquer Your Fear of Public Speaking

With this step-by-step training plan, you’ll have a proven system you can follow to fast-track your way to conquering your fear of public speaking and delivering an amazing (no-fear) presentation.

  • "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.“    –Eleanor Roosevelt

Successful people can share their ideas clearly, powerfully, and succinctly.

While the rest of the world continues to live through this horror of doubt and fear…

   …you’ll gain strength, courage & confidence with each & every presentation you give…

Which means you’ll be able to handle any presentation that comes along. 

You’ll strengthen your presentation skills, learn to really connect with your audience, and find out how to overcome your fear of public speaking…

…before another one of your presentations causes another panic stricken frenzy.

If you ever had this fear of public speaking (as I have), then you know what I’m talking about…

Specifically you…

  • Can’t speak. 

  • Forget what you were going to say.

  • Can’t breath or talk in a clear, normal voice.

  • Can’t stop shaking or hide the excessive sweating or the red or yellow color of your face.

  • Don’t appear confident so you’re audience isn’t happy or entertained.

  • Shy away from facing the audience, large groups or even small groups and individuals.

  • Have low self-esteem and look foolish in front of the audience with poor presentation skills.

There’s an infinite loop of first the fear of public speaking, then worrying about it, then more fear, then more worrying, and on and on…

Worst of all, up until now, you have had no support to overcome these fear-based challenges.

There have been no good materials to help...

…you have a hard time starting the correction process of getting your fear of public speaking handled by yourself.

It can result in a loss of career potential, opportunities and extra income potential… all because of your fear of public speaking!

So, why do I bring all these up?

Because I wanted you to know you’re not alone. 

In fact, I had all these same fears of public speaking.  (Many people don’t know that).

  • "Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.“    –Judy Blume

When I confronted this fear, I was able to break the fear and start delivering genuine presentations without that fear or nervousness showing. 

I figured out how to bottle that up and share it with the world.

And by following the step-by-step strategies, techniques and tools in Calm, you’ll learn from the inside out, how to establish your self-esteem, enhance and define your public speaking skills, and face and manage your fears of public speaking so you can stay in control of any audience.

You’ll experience a sense of happiness, success and freedom you’ve never felt before as you finally conquer your fear of public speaking, appear confident and credible and actually enjoy speaking in front of any size crowd. 

Best of all, you’ll learn from real-life examples…

Including the exact steps to face and conquer your fear, and create, practice and deliver a no-fear presentation.

These are the same steps that we used to personally help those same 337 speakers conquer THEIR fear and move from phobic to epic presentations. 

And in case you’re skeptical, we even include case studies like this one to prove just how effective this system is…

Calm Course Reviews: 

"I conquered my fear in my last presentation.  I was able to give my presentation effectively in front of a crowd without the security of a podium or table. To spectators, I looked and sounded confident. My body did not betray me with shakes or stutters, which is really all I was going for. I was almost surprised how easy it was once I got into it. Even better, now that I have done it once, I feel much more confident about doing it again. Having concrete evidence that I can get up there and not fall apart feels good. And my guess is that with these types of things, you build a momentum. Much like how you can spiral out of control then crash and burn, you can have a positive feedback loop. Now that I am better at public speaking, I feel more confident, which makes me better again and become even more confident."

       Payvand Moaddel-- Quality Assurance

“When people turn to trainers for suggestions on how to improve presentations etc. they are not looking for complex mathematical models or formulas to analyze what’s going wrong. And you my friend have totally understood this long ago. What you suggest is simple to follow. Simple, but not obvious! I have not attended many public speaking sessions etc. but my experience suggests that people are just reiterating the obvious, which does no good. “Don’t be nervous” they tell you, what the deuce! So when you said, “don’t show that you are nervous…” that was something actionable, something that I can do. Thanks a ton.” 

        Lokesh Dhairyawan--Software Developer

“Combining years of personal experience as well as knowledge in psychology and sociology, Jason delivered clear advice and practical exercises that helped me not only overcome my fear of public speaking, but also turned me into a better oral communicator.”

      Kyle Reger–-Software Developer

This isn’t just theoretical fluff, pie in the sky ideas, one hit wonders or concepts that sound good on paper but are impossible to execute, that come off as disingenuous or that are just plain ineffective.

Here’s how it works:

Calm is a Universal, Step-by-Step Plan for Overcoming Your Fear of Public Speaking and going from phobic to epic presentations.

Is it really possible for YOU to conquer YOUR fear of public speaking, appear confident and credible and actually enjoy speaking in front of any size crowd?

Absolutely…

Just follow the step-by-step process layed out in four modules in Calm…

Module 1: Face Your Fear Of Public Speaking

The first thing we’ll do is turn your negative speaking fears into confident beliefs. After all, it doesn’t matter if you have the best presentation content, the best delivery skills, and the best audience management…

If you still allow your fear to creep in, it will BOMB.

  • How do you ground yourself?

  • What are YOUR negative speaking beliefs?

  • How do you turn your fear into CONFIDENT speaking beliefs?

By learning these underlying principles, you’ll learn a process to FACE your fear around speaking that you can actually stick to and that actually feels good and happens naturally for you.

Module 2: Create A No-Fear Presentation

In 2012, I had just finished a keynote speech about public speaking, and a dozen people came up towards me after the speech and stood in line waiting to talk to me.

One of them said something to me that inspired this entire program...

He said, “While all that stuff is great that you taught today, no other advice you give me will matter until I can overcome my fear. Once it sets in, I can’t think about anything else.”

After hearing this, I looked him in the eyes, after everyone had left the room, and I said:

“Nobody is born an amazing public speaker. That trait is learned, and there is a specific CONTENT recipe for creating your agenda, hooks, slideshow and script.  I can teach it to you if you like. 

He looked at me and said, “Yes, absolutely.”

You’re about to learn what I taught him.

Module 3: Practice Your No-Fear Presentation

  • Audiences love being around attractive speakers.

That’s because attractive speakers are genuine.  You’ll learn how to practice being the most genuine version of yourself. 

  • Attractive speakers don’t show any nervousness…ever.

You’ll learn proper preparation that will make your nerves (and your fears) go away from the moment you set foot “on stage”, and even before.

  • When others are around attractive speakers, they think they can do anything.

You’ll learn how to ensure both you and your audience will feel more comfortable, confident, and safe. It’ll transform your nerves from feelings of anxiety to excitement and enthusiasm.

I assure you this will happen sooner than you might expect.

Module 4: Deliver A No-Fear Presentation

This is where you’ll learn to APPEAR calm and collected even when you’re feeling nervous inside.

Everyone wants to know how to get up in front of an audience and connect with it—right away.  

I will tell you how.

Using the Rule the Room preparation principles, you will get an immediate response that will be unlike any you have experienced.

The rustling will stop. People will come to attention.

Eyes will be fixed on you.

Then, you’ll learn how to handle fear throughout your presentation. 

You’ll be using techniques most presenters have never even heard of that will win over even the toughest audience. 

You may even be surprised to find you’re enjoying yourself.

If this 4-module process sounds difficult, don’t worry: we make everything simple, easy to understand, and quick to learn.

In fact, you can complete the entire training in just five hours! 

Which means that by this time tomorrow, you’ll be able to say with confidence:

“Finally, I know EXACTLY how to Look good in front of people rather than bad and feel more confident and comfortable instead of nervous and scared.”

Instead of doubting yourself, showing nervous and worrying about screwing it up, dropping your cards, or forgetting your lines…

You can boost your self-confidence: trusting and being confident in what you know!

You’ll have a confidence to present anything…

With a proven systemfor being more comfortable at public speaking.

And as your audience grows…

You’ll be able to talk in front of bigger and bigger groups…

…delivering a confident, articulate, eloquent talk with no nervousness showing.

We know this process works, because it’s the same system that helped hundreds of our clients conquer their fear of public speaking.

…and you’ll get to see me model exactly how to do it with a live audience…

Question:

Is there a guarantee?

Answer:

Yes…all our trainings have a 30-day, no-questions-asked guarantee.  Quite a few businesses say this, but I mean it. 

In other words, if you aren’t happy for any reason, just let us know and we’ll give you your money back. We obviously don’t think it’ll come to that, but if you’re even the least bit worried if this will work for you, then put your mind at ease. You either get the results you want or you get your money back. It’s as simple as that!

Question:

How long does it take to finish the course?

Answer:

This class is 5+ hours of video training, so if you are working at it full-time you could technically complete the class in a half-day (although this is not recommended). To fully understand and apply the materials, you should allow 2-4 days if you are working full-time, and 7-10 days if you are taking the class part-time.

How long will it take to get access to this program?

Answer:

Immediate.

Your login and access will be immediate, and there will be a video on the next page that explains how you can access the video program and workbook and get started going from Phobic to Epic Presentations!

 Question:

When do I have to finish the Calm program?

Answer:

It’s totally up to you. You can go at whatever pace suits you best! You’ve got a lot of other things going on in your life, so just because you enroll in the Calm training doesn’t mean you need to complete it right away. In fact, you can start and finish Calm whenever you want. Either way, we’re going to be there with you every step of the way to ensure you’re successful.

Question:

How long can I keep the Calm program?

Answer:

It’s yours for life.  It’s not about having to get up in front of 1,000 people when you’re still learning and practice and feeling embarrassed.  That just creates more negative tables for yourself that spirals.  You need positive tables.  You get results as you learn this program from the privacy of your own location, on your own device, and at your own your pace.  The best part?  You get to keep it.  Forever.

Question:

Do you offer grants or financial aid for your Calm program?

Answer:

At this time, no grants or financial aid programs are available. The good news is that we have priced our classes so that they are affordable to all, especially compared to similar public speaking and presentation programs and workshops.
