EP.002: Faydra Koenig

My interview with “America’s Crises Coach” Faydra was AWESOME and EXACTLY what aspiring speaker needed to hear! As a new podcaster  I want to make sure thatSpeakers On Speaking adds values to your speaking journey. So you can imagine the stress that I was experiencing as I thought about my first interview. So many questions… “How do I get a guest? What do I say? Will I make a fool out of myself?” Well there was nothing to stress over, because I had Faydra “America’s Crises Coach.” She had me feeling calm at “Hello!” Faydra knew what I was going through. I make that bold claim for three reasons. She has her own podcast “Coming Out of the Fire.” A podcast where she interviews high-achievers who faced unimaginable obstacles and came out on top. She knows how to to help people though crises and last but not least… She IS a professional speaker, successfully earning a living as a speaker for over than 10 years.
