Here I'll share various people/products/services I've come across that I feel are beneficial to public speakers. Though I'm not officially "endorsing" any of the below, they are my favorites in each category. May you never stop learning and growing...Anastasia

Public Speaking Training:
Toastmasters.org offers ample opportunities to "practice" speeches in a very safe and supportive environment. In nearly every city you'll find a Toastmasters group that you can join. I personally am partial to my local group ToastofPetaluma.org.
iSpeakEASY.net offers workshops and the intensive "Speakers Academy" which I personally participated in and highly recommend! Ethan Rotman has a real gift...whether you're new or accomplished as a speaker, he can make you an even better one!
ICustomizeThesis.com is who I've used to develop and tweak my site. I also use them for my upgrades, etc. as I don't want to deal with the hassle and risk of doing all of that myself. Their prices are SO reasonable it's a no-brainer to use them.
uniphistudios.com has done much of the graphics work in my site as well as my husband's www.SchustersRoost.com. Full disclosure, Ian is our nephew, but he really does great work. So great to have such talent in the family!
