If you're reading this, you likely have a problem when you speak in front of others.

Maybe it's something you have to do as a regular part of your job. Maybe it's a special occasion at which you're being called on to give a presentation or even just say a few words.

It's no big deal. Everything should be fine. Except there’s a problem, and it’s a big one. Stage fright* is going to spoil things for you.


Your heart is going to race, your fingers tremble, and you won’t be able to concentrate.

The bottom line is that stage fright is going to keep you from doing as well as you know you otherwise could. What should have be an enjoyable, proud moment is going to be an embarrassing ordeal. You’ll be happy just to survive.

*aka speech fright and glossophobia


It Doesn’t Have to Be That Way

I've got some good news and some good news for you.

Here's the bad. You'll never do as well as you could speaking in front of others until you find your way beyond stage fright, and that could have a major impact on your life in all sorts of ways.

Now, here's the good news. There IS an answer for stage fright, but it's understood by so few performers you could call it a secret.

When you discover it, you'll have the winning edge you need. you won't have to try and imagine the audience in its underwear. You could be in your underwear and it wouldn’t matter.

I'm Dr. David Lee Fish

Do you struggle with stage fright when you speak in front of others? Is it hindering your career and making the spotlight unenjoyable?

My career as an educator has depended on being able to speak well in public, and I certainly know what it's like for it to make you nervous.

I’ve helped many individuals who speak in public with the anxiety they experience.

Trust me to also show you the way beyond your nervousness in just a few days.

Why the Answer is So Hard to Find

Why do so few people find the answer to stage fright? It's because
most of us have it all wrong when it comes to this menace
. It's actually like the type of finger traps we use to play with as kids. Our instinct is to pull to get free, but that just makes the hold stronger. The effective answer is counterintuitive. The same goes for stage fright.



What is the counterintuitive answer for stage fright? It's found in the simple power of mindfulness.

As reported in respected media sources like the New York Times, Psychology Today, and Time magazine, the scientific community is discovering something age-old traditions have known all along. Mindfulness offers a potent antidote for a range of problems, including stage fright.

The 5-Day Solution

As a young performer and student of Zen, I stumbled upon the remarkable benefits of mindfulness in helping me with my own nervousness when performing in public (long before mindfulness became popular).

I built upon this experience to help others find their own way beyond stage fright. They include my students at Catawba College, where I direct a thriving program of study for students of popular music.

I've now poured everything I’ve learned about stage fright into the 5-Day Solution to help everyone learn the secret to performing, speaking, and competing free of anxiety's grasp.

The 5-Day Solution is an essential weapon in the arsenal of any serious performer, public speaker, or athlete, and anyone else whose career depends on persuading, entertaining, or motivating others. Dr. Fish is revolutionizing entertainment & public speaking. DO THIS!!!"

Mel Fair (Halloween, Super 8, Scandal, Justified, Weeds)
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. Dr. Fish has helped me better understand this unwelcome guest, who often shows up unannounced.
The 5-Day Solution 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 A. (American Idol contestant)

As a media and arts teacher, I love the multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to the never-ceasing problem: fear of what others are thinking. The text uses psychology and philosophy but also remains bluntly pragmatic. I start with the 5-day method in my On Camera course as a means of freeing my students from themselves to become themselves.
—Dr. Woodrow Hood (Director of Film Studies, Wake Forest University)

I really like the straightforward and empowering method for helping performers recognize and work with stage fright without feeling shame, guilt, or embarrassment. The beauty of the approach is that it can be applied to other anxiety-provoking situations.
—Barbra Weidlein (

When you're 18-year-old twin sisters from Florida and trying to crack the shell of Nashville, it's easy to feel intimidated. The 5-Day Solution is a life-changer, driving the confidence & energy we need to deliver our sound, our dreams, and our art to our audiences! Thanks, Dr. Fish. You ROCK!!!
