My personal story is everyone's story, the fear of public speaking. Most of us would rather die than be called upon to give a speech. The people who are frightened to stand up to speak suffer from a lack of self-confidence and a fear of being judged. It is reputed that 80-90% of the population in the USA, suffers from glossophobia... the fear of public speaking. We can overcome this personal handicap.
Squelched is much more than a guide to becoming a better speaker. It can help you overcome feeling afraid or inferior as you gain self-confidence and self-acceptance, and you learn to feel secure in who you are. Read this book and apply the principles offered, and you will be on your way to finding your voice!

"Squelched took me on a journey of reflection and self-discovery. Terry provided an emotional rollercoaster ride that kep me turning pages to the very end. Many times the words "me too" flitted through my mind, reminding me that "nevery being good enough" is a familiar societal demon. Words of wisdom and lessons learned were shared against a backdrop of personal struggle and success. For me, Squelched was a love story - a journey of finding self-love and then sharing that love with the world. Well done!"
