Spiders in your Ear or Butterflies in your Stomach?

When it comes to fear, impromptu speaking and spiders have a lot in common. Both can make you smile, and both can make you cringe, but when it comes down to which one is scarier, they are certainly not on equal footing (footing! get it? eight legs!). Let’s take a closer look at why spiders come out as the scariest of the two.

For starters, spiders are stealthy; they crawl and move around without your knowledge. Unlike impromptu speaking, no matter what you think, no one from the audience is interested in climbing up your leg (probably not). That means spiders can get up close and personal with you wherever and whenever they want. EEK! When you are speaking, the audience usually sits still.

The worst that will happen when speaking in front of a group is that your message is missed, your style is drab, or you basically "lay an egg." I would rather "lay an egg" in front of peers than have a spider lay eggs anywhere around me or on me.

We all know, that one of the best ways to overcome a fear or discomfort is to immerse yourself in it. So, which would you rather do? Sit in a tub full of spiders or try a Master Happiness Improv for Business (and other reasons) Workshop? It’s a no-brainer.

These workshops are low-stress, powerful public speaking secrets. You will be working alongside other people that want to get more comfortable networking and speaking in groups. We’ll laugh and learn together, and you will never be forced to perform.

But the best news is that No Spiders are invited.

You will become a better listener, a better communicator, and a better team player, plus have loads of fun. So, what are you waiting for? Sign you and your team up TODAY!
