Just got invited to speak for an hour. Paid. And I very much appreciate the invitation from a fellow Toastmaster who knows me pretty well.
I also curse. During my Toastmasters 30-min speaking demos, 1-on-1 speaking and life coaching sessions, 2-hour bootcamp confidence workshops – I curse. It’s not gratuitous or derogatory or mean-spirited, but I definitely curse.
Cursing is like a neon color that adds a bit of spice to my canvas.
I won’t substitute curse words with other words. It wouldn’t be authentic.
And authentic wins every time, even if the speaking opportunity goes to someone else. And if it does, I wish that speaker the best of success.
