Dude, this advice is original and spot on!

I like the embarrass yourself part — for me, it’s so important to get as comfortable as quickly as possible. Never thought to directly show some level of vulnerability right away, but I can see that working to a T.

One thing I do when giving a presentation is show a short clip out of the gate. Even just a 30 second clip is enough for me to break through that initial anxiety and get comfortable reading everyone and being at the forefront of the room.

Great stuff Jordan!
