Do you consider yourself shy? Do you fade into the background in a crowded room? Do you experience a brain freeze similar to a deer in the headlights when called upon to make small talk one on one? In an article entitled “Breaking the Ice” which was recently posted to the web site of Freedman Consulting, the author makes a startling revelation about her personal struggles in this area, and offers some suggestions.

The author has also ordered a number of relatively inexpensive books which may prove helpful:
