TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading — through TED.com, our annual conferences, the annual TED Prize and local TEDx events. If your New Year’s resolution is to give a TEDx talk yourself — or to silence your inner monologue that thinks “I can’t do public speaking” — read a few of these stories, written by people who got up on the TEDx stage this year. They’re brave, prepared, and honest about what it takes to take the stage. For instance, here’s a dialogue that Brittany Gibbons, the Barefoot Foodie, had with a friend before TEDxBGSU this fall: I don’t know how to be good at this, Andy. You will be amazing. Or this could be the biggest thing I fail at, ever. Unlikely. Nothing could beat you half slipping into the grave hole at my grandma’s funeral. Well that’s for sure, they should mark those better.
