Now I am a confident and hardworking Norwegian, when I was 19 not so much.
Here is my story:
One day in November, I agreed to hold a speech in front of 250-300 people. I was so nervous from the day I said yes to the day I would hold the speech, that I almost couldn't sleep. I studied, practiced and honed my skills until I felt I had control. When the day came, I still felt nervous, and when the announcer said my name I felt my hands starting to sweat and my knees starting to feel like jelly.
I went up to the podium, started to talk, and then - 30 seconds in - I choked. I stood in front of all those people in what felt like an eternity, before I had to walk down from there again.
After this, I promised myself that this would never happen again - and that I would help others so they wouldn't be in my situation.
When doing my bachelor in Business Management, I also worked as a substitute teacher in secondary schools in Norway. I also managed to land a job in the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic and Confederation of Sports as a Public Speaker. With the training and experience I gathered from my studies and jobs, I have now used to start working on my own as a Public Speaking Coach.

My career has been spent in marketing and product management (in addition to starting several of my own businesses), which means I have a good understanding of all the moving parts needed to come together when delivering a product to the marketplace. This covers a wide swath of issues including legal, regulatory, vendors, suppliers, distributors, sales, advertising, billing, customer support, purchasing, user experience, warranties, and more. Half the battle is figuring out what needs to be done before a product or service is ever introduced to the customer. I provide consulting services and resources for people that want to turn their ideas into a business or explore new ways to grow their business.
Earning a MS degree from the University of Colorado provided a great base from which to launch my career, but more valuable is the PhD wretched from the cold hands of the school of hard knocks. If I didn't learn from failure then the risk wasn't worth it. Don't get me wrong, succeeding is great but it's the variety of experiences that provides the best education.

¡Hola a todos/as! I have been teaching Spanish for almost 10 years in universities (SDSU and Georgetown), private schools and through private lessons, and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Spanish culture, study abroad in Latin America, and more! It is important for me to get to know my students and their goals so that I can adapt my lessons to their pace and needs.
