Pursuing a TED Talk is extraordinarily hard.
You’ll have to confront your inner critic. The part of yourself that thinks you’re not “good enough”.
You’ll have to hunt for opportunities around you. This part is kind of boring.
You’ll have to do deep research. This part will feel a bit pointless.
You’ll test and refine your idea, and this is a really humbling experience. This is the hardest part. You’ll have to question your own ideas, and you can never really be “done” this part….but at some point you have to pull the trigger and send in an application.
And to top it all off…there’s no certainty! Imagine all that work, and someone else still gets to decide whether to invite you to speak.
Working with me is even worse…it costs money. But if you do, it’s absolutely your best shot at landing a talk at a TEDx event. It’s a process that’s worked for others. But it’s a lot of work.
Are you up for it?
