Readers crave a genuine voice.
There is no reason to concoct false fronts or personas, build mental walls, or hide behind a veil of anonymity when you tell your personal stories. Don't write in a way that you think your audience wants to read. Never write to appease your demographic. Write for you, share your life openly and honestly, and you will be amazed at the benefit and respect that can come from transparency and truth in writing.
This session will explore the positive aspects of coming clean with your life and sharing it with millions, thousands, hundreds, or even tens of people on the Internet. It will help you to approach the best ways to defend yourself from trolls while standing proud in your ability to share your life with people who are interested and fascinated with what you have to say.

As he is a comedian, please be aware that there may be some strong language during the session.
