You immediately feel the relaxed and friendly atmosphere when you step into the Downbeat Cafe in Echo Park. Writers sit typing into their computers or stare into space, others study big volumes of literature and groups talk about their next film project, annoying boyfriends or planned vacations. Nobody seems to be in a hurry and there are a lot of regulars who great each other with a few words, a smile and a friendly wave.
Afraid of public speaking? Feeling sweat in the palms of your hands just thinking about it? Losing your voice doing it? Don’t despair! Not only are most people like you, even celebrities with all their star-qualities in front of the camera. More importantly: you have the charisma, you have the magic inside of you to be a great public speaker. You have everything it takes to inspire and even change people who listen to you.
