Stage Fright Holding You Back?
3 out 4 performers (including professionals) have a problem with stage fright, so the chances are you do too.
That’s true whether your an actor, a musician, or another type of performer.
It might not be so bad if stage fright were just a nuisance for you, but it’s an out-and-out impediment. It creates an unworkable situation as it stands like a permanent roadblock between you and achieving of your full potential as a performer. It also takes the joy out of being in the spotlight.
The question is, what are you going to do about it?
You’ve probably already tried to overcome your stage fright on your own, but nothing seems to help much, does it? It can leave you feeling helpless and hopeless.
There are two things you need to know. First, getting nervous when you perform isn’t your fault. Second, you’re not broken in any sort of way when you do. As I tell my students, stage fright actually proves that you’re perfect, perfectly human.
Stop Trying to Figure It out on Your Own
Every successful performer I’ve ever known has found their way beyond stage fright. (They’ve had to do so to achieve their success.) The problem is it can take years of trial and error to figure out what actually works. While you’re groping around for the answer, you can waste a lot of valuable time and squander important opportunities that may never come around again.
Fortunately, with Goodbye Butterflies, I created an approach that offers genuine hope for the anxiety you experience as a performer. It can save you tons of time, effort, and frustration. I’ve designed it to be straightforward and offer quick results. Most performers start enjoying the benefits almost immediately.

Having spent the last 30+ years in the entertainment industry as a director, producer, writer, actor, sportscaster, and voice-over artist, I'm all too familiar with the nemesis known as stage fright. Working through Dr. Fish's Goodbye Butterflies has helped me better understand this unwelcome guest, who often shows up unannounced. It can be managed and put in its place with the proper perspective, which helps release the artistic flow that is necessary to share the performance that rings true to the audience - be it one person or millions. Do yourself a favor and READ Goodbye Butterflies and discover for yourself what I did.Mel Fair (Halloween, Super 8, Scandal, Justified, Weeds)
Goodbye Butterflies is an essential weapon in the arsenal of any serious performer and anyone else whose career depends on persuading, entertaining, or motivating others. And that's EVERYONE! Dr. Fish is revolutionizing entertainment & public speaking. What Dale Carnegie is to "winning friends & influencing people," he is to performance. DO THIS!!!"Pat O'Connor (artist manager & CEO - POC Media, Inc.)
Goodbye Butterflies transformed my stage fright. It's given me an outlet to channel the adrenaline and stay in control of my nerves! Being confident in your stage presence makes you feel unstoppable! I'm sad that I spent so many years letting stage fright make my voice shake and personality disappear. Make sure to check out the 'cuppa' exercise. You can thank me later!Maddie (American Idol contestant)
I really like David’s straightforward and empowering method for helping performers recognize and work with stage fright without feeling shame or guilt or embarrassment. The beauty of this mindful approach is that it can be applied to other anxiety-provoking situations as well.Barbra Weidlein (Co-Founder and Director - MajoringInMusic.com)
