    Appreciate this thought. Personally gives me some confidence in my shot. I a pretty consistent shot over the net and in so I must be doing something right but I always feel like I’m not quite doing it right enough. Maybe it’s because I have my own spice in the mix. Thanks Will

    Excellent insight with regards to tennis. But your actor friend is full of c on public speaking. Sloppy verbal skills are just that, sloppy. It is different for an actor portraying a character.

    Thanks Ann. David wasn’t talking about acting – he was talking about public speaking. The point is that if you have a few “ums” or “ahs” here and there it’s not a big deal. Don’t worry about them. Don’t try to edit them out of your video or podcast. Don’t be afraid to be yourself.

    Obviously, if you say “um” or “like” every other word you have a problem.

    One of your best videos, Will. Liked the casual, relaxed way you made your point. You’re right . . . the bee brought out more of the real you for the viewers. Good stuff!

    If you want to remove “ums”, “errs”, etc, you should just speak-more-slowly-and
    -more-deliberately-on-a-more-even-pace.

    That’s what they teach those with a stammer … and guess what? … it works! … your brain has more time to fashion your speech.

    If you go back and checkout menstrual hidalgo’s post all over the web she seems to have some anger issues with tennis coaches I think she needs some med’s.
