How To Overcome Fear Of Public Speaking w/ Josh Pais

Before we get going into today’s episode, I want to thank you so very much for all of the love and prayers you sent our way after last week’s accident.

I’m happy to report we’re all doing so much better, and we’re taking very active (and gentle :)) steps to heal.

There’s no doubt in my mind that YOUR positive energy and intentions have, and continue to, help my family tremendously.

Speaking of family, you’ll get to see and hear directly from my man Josh — today.

Josh is an incredible actor, director and teacher. While you can look him up on IMDB to see everything he’s been in, you’ll be able to catch him this summer in the brand new Showtime series, Ray Donovan alongside Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight.
