    .... from Claim to fame.

    Because I make charity candles for Cancer Research they asked me to do a talk on how I make the candles and how I got involved with Cancer Research. I went on Friday - was absolutely bricking myself because I have never spoken in front of so many people before (about 100) but it went well and in half an hour I had sold 40 charity candles which meant I could dontate £50.00 to Cancer Research UK.

    The whole night was brilliant and everybody there made me feel really welcome and were so generous I couldn't believe it. Cancer Research have asked me if I would do some more wee talks for them and I think I will - just need to get over the talking jitters first.

          Well done on overcoming your nervousness. I'm sure that the more talks you do the easier it will get.

          Never had the nerve to do talks myself, so I really do admire your courage.

              that's brill. If you get really comfortable with this, you could always put out feelers about doing paid talks for other non-charity groups.....

                I was absolutely terrified thought I would have a heart attach right there and then so don't think I could but who knows!! Need to go on a self assertiveness/confidence course I think.

                Thanks for all the comments.
