Yes, I remember my first conference presentations. I was scheduled to be present as one of a five member group. We all were colleagues from Los Angeles, worked together and practiced together. At the same conference I was scheduled to give a presentation, solo. It never occurred to me that none of my colleagues would attend my seminar. We were all there in the same city, at the same time, staying at the same hotel and presenting at the same conference. We all were interested in the topic. I was terribly disappointed. I struggled with not taking it personally, and failed. I had to do some personal exploration and learning to move past that disappointment - or disillusionment - or both. My expectations did not relate to reality.
