A couple of months ago, I got to meet one of my heroes. Someone I think is AMAZING. The first bit of the encounter – when there were lots of others around – went alright.
Then I tried to talk to her one-on-one. Before I knew what was happening, I was acting like – well, basically, the opposite of how I wanted to come across. Lots of spitting. Laughing too hard. Almost as if I was trying to make her dislike me.
Sadly, it’s a way of behaving that I know all too well. Happily – I’ve learned to give this condition a name – and some steps to get rid of it. Is this something you’ve experienced? If so, in today’s video, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to: your DORK GOBLIN.
Acting like a weirdo around someone you think is fantastic? Don’t worry – that’s just your DORK GOBLIN
I cannot WAIT to hear all about your Dork Goblin! Please tell me all about him or her in the comments below.
To help you fully flesh him or her out, here, as promised, is your: DORK GOBLIN WORKSHEET
(just click on those words to download it!)
Thanks so much for watching! If you have a friend who you KNOW has a Dork Goblin of their own, please share this video with them. You can use one of those little round buttons below.
You rule, xx

PS, this week I told the Yes Yes Marsha Mailer Family about the other, more embarrassing times when my Dork Goblin comes out to play. Would you like FREE weekly coaching – plus secrets and stories like this that I won’t put on the internet?
