The Myth of Mistakes

Mistakes are like the boogy-man. They are a myth. They exist only because we’re afraid of them.

Why Public Speaking Experts Should Shut Up And Sit Down!

I incorporate several of the Speaking Circle principles in my own program because they are so good!

Toastmasters International
Now, I don’t go to Toastmasters because I don’t like their “rating” system, and I don’t recommend it for people who are scared stiff of speaking in public. But if you’re just a little nervous and you want to hone your skills, you might really like joining a local Toastmasters group.

Confidence & Fearlessness

Fearless Living
Rhonda digs right in to the heart of fear in the beginning chapters of this book. She knows what she’s talking about. This book gets a little thick and sticky when she starts talking about the “how” of it all, the Wheel of Fear and the Wheel of Freedom, but the essence of this book is right on.

Public Speaking/Performing

Be Heard Now
This is where you start. Lee Glickstein’s book is a must read for anyone who wants to speak or perform with ease and authenticity.

The Likeability Factor

What does this book have to do with public speaking and performing?
A lot! I squirmed at the underlying premise that you need to be liked to be successful and happy, but the four main traits that Saunders talks about — friendliness, relevance, empathy and “realness” can be directly applied to public speaking or performing.

The Law of Attraction

Ask and It Is Given
Abraham is the authority when it comes to the Law of Attraction, in my opinion. But this material can be very rich and intense to read. You might want to start by listening to a recording of one of their workshops at Abraham-Hicks.

The Law of Attraction
Michael’s approach to the Law of Attraction is simple, straightforward and easy to understand and apply. A small but marvelous book.

The Feel Good Guide to Prosperity
Eva rocks! She has a fresh and lively approach to living the Law of Attraction and Deliberate Creation.

The Attractor Factor
While none of this information was new to me, I liked the way that Joe Vitale makes the Law of Attraction so accessible and easy for anybody to understand. His enthusiasm is uplifting and fun, and he has some amazing personal stories in this book.

What People Are Saying

What People Are Saying about
Unconditional Confidence

“This was by far one of the best classes I’ve ever taken, bar none! It was a life changing experience. Thanks, Nancy.”

Tom Montan
Copperfield Books

“Nancy did an amazing job of teaching me how to be “comfortable in my own skin,” and how to connect with the audience. This is stuff you just can’t get by reading a book. You’ve got to experience it.”

Jeanne Eilers
Recreation Specialist

“By working with Nancy one-on-one, my fear was transformed into fun. I used to feel nervous and self-conscious anytime I had to speak in front of a group, but after working with Nancy and her Unconditional Confidence training program, I really have a good time anytime I get to speak or give a presentation. Nancy taught me how to find my own authentic way of speaking with people, a way that allowed me to be genuine and at ease while making a powerful connection with the people in my audience. As a result, all my communications, not just my public speaking, are more effective and satisfying now.

But best yet, my work with Nancy allowed me to become more confident in every area of my life, not just in public speaking. The tools, processes and support she provided fueled my own insight into what was holding me back and how to set myself free. Without a doubt, the Unconditional Confidence program has been one of the most empowering experiences in both my personal and professional life.”

Craig Ahlswede
Staff Resources Inc.

“Working with Nancy and her Unconditional Confidence 6-week training allowed me to experiment, express and enjoy with new abandon. I was able to work at the edge of my fear while feeling completely seen, celebrated and held. The grip of negative beliefs unraveled and lost their power. Energy, desire and inspiration flowed. My own teaching practice has deepened, and my students are benefiting from this work as well.”

Fran Carbanaro
Singer, Voice Teacher, Performance Coach

“I am Nancy Tierney’s biggest fan. After working with her for just two months, I gave the best presentation of my career at an industry conference. As a result, I was invited to speak at two more conferences, I attracted two new clients and eleven potential clients and I got a big head from all the compliments I received from my colleagues. I felt like a famous movie star!

Nancy’s coaching gave me permission to take risks, think outside the box and have fun. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Tom Boyd
Boyd & Nicholas

“I feel a renewed energy and I’m really going for it! This is, without a doubt, due to what I learned in the Unconditional Confidence training. I used to feel this weight as our presentation date approached, but now I’m really looking forward to it…which is an amazing change for me. Nancy, you are awesome!”

Angela Rush
The Healthy Community

“Nancy Tierney is a FABULOUS teacher when it comes to public speaking and performing. She is by far our most popular presenter at the Volunteer Center where she has been presenting an Unconditional Confidence workshop to members of the nonprofit community for several years. Class participants write glowing evaluations about her sessions and how her trainings have changed their lives. Thank you, Nancy, for your wonderful energy, style, and confidence!”

Jean Bertelsen

Director of Non-Profit Resources
Volunteer Center of Sonoma County

“Unconditional Confidence turns public speaking on its head! This is a very unique approach. After taking the six-week class, I am so much more comfortable with just being myself and being free to not tie myself to a prepared speech. I realized that I can tell a good story and I can capture an audience by just being who I truly am.”

Su Lin Mangan

“Because of Nancy’s exciting approach to confidence, I was able to let go of my old ‘not good enough’ story. This change allowed me to manifest more sales of my CD that resulted in radio airplay on a 24-hour jazz station. Even though I am a coach who is being coached by another powerful coach, my work with Nancy contributed a big piece to my emotional and psychological healing.

Her own fearless communication, her willingness to be vulnerable, honest and open, her humor, her heart and her brilliance all stand out for me.”

Sherle Stevens

Jazz Singer, Photographer, Coach

“This workshop helped me to move through my fears and barriers so I could actually, for the first time, get up and speak in front of a group. And because of what I learned here, it was actually fun!”

Linda Stettler
Life Challenge Solutions

“In just a few short sessions with Nancy, I moved from slumping around, digging myself ever deeper into my “I don’t know what I want to do and I don’t interview well” hole into finding my place at the table in the perfect job with kindred spirits. Nancy helped me claim my power, my passion, my Pele within. I learned how to trust my voice and connect with myself and others even while feeling anxious. Nancy also taught me some simple techniques to not only voice my big dreams but live them. And she was available to coach and encourage me all along the way.

“Best of all, we laughed long and loudly with each other. I am so grateful for the light and life that Nancy shares with me and the world.”

Frequently Asked Questions
about Unconditional Confidence

What makes Unconditional Confidence different from any other program dealing with stage fright or anxiety?

What practices or schools of thought is the program based on? What tools are included and where do they come from?

I don’t have time for a long, drawn out program. I just want to have confidence now! Can your program do that for me?

I don’t really have stage fright. I just want to feel more spontaneous and authentic when I am speaking. Can your program give me what I want?

You say these programs are fun. How can that be? I’m scared just thinking about it!

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

What makes Unconditional Confidence different from any other program dealing with stage fright or anxiety?
There are many approaches to transforming stage fright, from psychotherapy to medication to hypnosis. The Unconditional Confidence program is unique because:

1. It’s holistic, which means that it addresses all aspects of your experience: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.


2. It is tailored meet to your own needs and goals. Not everybody faces the same symptoms or reasons for feeling  doubt, fear or anxiety. Nor does everyone learn in the same way. The Unconditional Confidence program is flexible so that it can meet your unique and individual needs and goals.

3. You are not required to attend meetings or group practice sessions in order to get the most out of this program. Some programs base their effectiveness on your attendance of meetings in order to practice, like Toastmasters or Speaking Circles. While Unconditional Confidence program encourages you to find opportunities to express yourself in group situations, it’s not necessary in order to benefit greatly from the program.

4. This program is about developing real, honest to goodness confidence in every area of your life, not just in your self-expression. We focus on self-expression through speaking or performing,

but everything you learn in this program can be applied to any area in your life where you would like to feel unconditionally confident and free
. We are going for the real thing here: undeniable, bone-deep confidence in who you are, not just what you do.

5. It allows you to be you. This program is not about becoming a clone of some super star motivational speaker or the next Bette Midler. It’s not about learning prepackaged techniques and gestures and ways of presenting yourself. It’s about you finding your own genuine, authentic way of expressing yourself.

6. It’s drug free, hypnosis free, behavior modification free, psychotherapy free, NLP free, dogma-free, and suffering-free.

7. It’s fun. I know, it’s hard to believe, but the journey gets to be as fun as the destination. Sometimes I am afraid to tell people that this program is fun because so many people think there’s no gain without pain. But what could be more fun than experiencing the joy of having what you want?

In this program we learn through our joy, inspiration, pleasure and upliftment, not our suffering. So, if you want a program that is hard and heartbreaking, this isn’t the program for you.

What practices or schools of thought is the program based on? What tools are included and where do they come from?
The Unconditional Confidence program is a distillation and expansion of four revolutionary schools devoted to the liberation of our human experience. Sounds mysterious, doesn’t it? Some of these “schools of experience” focus on confidence in public communication and performance. Others focus on becoming free of all that holds you back from joy and personal freedom.

For example,

Speaking Circles International

and the teachings of Dr. Ben Bernstein of Oakland, CA, are two sources of valuable information that are included in the Unconditional Confidence program. These systems focus primarily on becoming free, authentic, present and powerful when speaking or performing.

The teachings of


and the somatic principles of the

Lomi School of Somatics

are also included, and these schools focus on becoming empowered, creative, and free in every area of your life.

In my experience, not any one of these four programs alone, nor any others I tried along the way, were complete in and of themselves when it came to transforming fear, doubt and anxiety into confidence, ease and joy. That’s why I created the Unconditional Confidence program so that I could distill and expand upon the best of what these schools and other experts had to offer.

I don’t have time for a long, drawn out program. I just want to have confidence now! Can your program do that for me?
The Unconditional Program is practical and immediately applicable. You can put it to work for you immediately and you will feel a positive shift in your level of confidence and an increasing joy and satisfaction in all your communications. Right away.

If you’re looking for confidence quick, check out the “Gimme Confidence Quick” TeleClass and ebook. They are designed for people like you who don’t want a long program.

The 6-week programs are also pretty condensed but they are focused on creating a real, deep, internal shift in our level of confidence, creativity and charisma. If you want the real deal —  true, abiding, trustworthy, unshakeable self-confidence that is expansive, evolving and joyful — it takes a little time, focus, and practice.

Because everyone is different and has different needs, I designed Unconditional Confidence programs for the get-me-there-quick as well as the sure-and-steady. Some people just need just a few tools and a different perspective and they are off and running. Sometimes the dam that holds you back is paper thin, and one thought, one “ah-hah!” is all you need, and nothing can ever hold you back again.

I don’t really have stage fright. I just want to feel more spontaneous and authentic when I am speaking. Can your program give me what I want?
You betcha!

All aspects of the Unconditional Confidence program are directed towards you becoming more and more of who you really are as you discover and claim your authentic way of expressing yourself. You become deeply connected to your unique, wild voice that comes from your core and you realize that you can trust that voice to be there at any time.

My recommendation for you is either the “Stand Up and Show Off” six-week TeleClass or individual coaching sessions, all of which will give you the tools, experience and support you need to quickly become completely authentic and spontaneous in your communications. It just depends on where you are in your own journey towards creative, authentic self-expression.

You say these programs are fun. How can that be? I’m scared just thinking about it!
Ah, yes. This program is fun because 1) you feel safe right away 2) it celebrates who you are right now as well as who you are becoming, 3) it doesn’t focus on what’s wrong, rather 4) it’s about having and experiencing what you want, and what could be more fun than that? Plus, true confidence and self empowerment come from being connected to and identified with that essential part of you that is inspired, joyful, impulsive and full of fun!

But let me be clear. Just because the path is enjoyable and fun doesn’t mean it takes your concerns and goals lightly. On the contrary. I take your desire very seriously. But serious doesn’t equal suffering. Believe me, the path to freedom can be a joyous one.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

If you incorporate the Power Tools and Processes into your experience and receive the coaching offered in the Unconditional Confidence trainings and you still feel you are not experiencing more confidence, ease, and authenticity in your self-expression, then I will refund 100% of your money.

Any training that includes an Unconditional Confidence Guidebook of any kind are exempt from this policy.

The reason for this is that the Unconditional Confidence Guidebook and/or weekly sessions are transmitted via email or snail mail during these programs.  These documents contain years and years of extensive and expensive research, education, hard-earned personal experience that is just too valueable to give away.

What is Unconditional Confidence?

What is Unconditional Confidence?

Unconditional Confidence® is a training program that gives you the tools, experience and support you need to speak or perform in public with complete confidence, ease and your own kind of creative charisma.

Because everyone has different needs and goals relative to becoming confident, creative and free in one’s self-expresson, all Unconditional Confidence training programs can be tailored to meet your individual needs and desires.

What can Unconditional Confidence do for you?

Well, it will allow you to:

  • Never again be tormented by those stomach-churning, mouth-drying, knee-knocking feelings of anxiety.
  • Stay focused, fearless and fully present anytime you are expressing yourself so you can always be at your best.
  • Have a great time (yes, a great time) when you are expressing yourself, no matter what!
  • Make a powerful connection with everyone in your audience, whether it’s an audience of one or one thousand.
  • Celebrate and trust your own unique way of expressing yourself and never again second-guess your ability to speak or perform, even if it’s at a moment’s notice.
  • Enjoy an unconditional confidence and joy in every area of your life.

How does the Unconditional Confidence program do all that?

By giving you:

  • Power Tools to transform your experience of speaking or performing in public so that you can create the experience you want rather than the one you dread. These Power Tools work with every aspect of your experience — physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

    These are tools I have collected, distilled and developed through my journey to becoming unconditionally confident. You can read more about the schools of experts who influenced the development of these Power Tools here.

  • Experience. As you use these Power Tools your relationship to speaking and performing is transformed so that you start to have a great time every time you are expressing yourself in any way.
  • Tons and tons of support and coaching. Developing confidence is a personal journey with ups and downs and everything in between. EVERYONE needs support and coaching from someone who’s been through it! All my programs include lots of support and coaching.
  • Fun! The journey gets to be as fun as the destination. In fact, the journey better be fun or perhaps it’s the wrong journey to take. Unconditional Confidence programs come with a high fun factor included.

Since everyone learns differently, Unconditional Confidence offers the “tortoise and the hare” approach to becoming fearless and free in one’s self-expression.

If you just want some quick tips and tools to get you through your next presentation with ease while creating an authentic connection with your audience, you can find what you need in the “Gimme Confidence Quick” programs and products.

If you want to feel an unconditional confidence deep in your bones, if you want to know that you are confident and free regardless of the situation or challenge before you, then the Unconditional Confidence 6-week programs are for you. These 6-week programs are recommended for those who want to experience a profound and powerful internal shift towards living a life of pure positive energy, confidence and joy.

About Nancy

Who’s In Charge Here?

Laughing Nancy TierneyMy name is Nancy Tierney. I’m a professional singer and a confidence coach who teaches people how to have complete confidence, creative freedom and tons of fun any time they are speaking or performing in public. Why am I qualified to help you become unconditionally confident?

Because the proof is in the pudding, and baby, I’m the pudding.

Let me explain: Years ago, I suffered from the most debilitating form of stage fright. Whenever I sang in public, my entire mouth would dry out so badly I couldn’t swallow, much less sing. Have you ever tried to sing when there isn’t one drop of saliva in your mouth? It’s not fun.

Every performance was difficult and depressing. Even though I loved to sing, this intense physical anxiety crippled my ability to perform and murdered any pleasure or satisfaction I might have felt in expressing myself through music.

As a somatic therapist and as an artist, I knew that there had to be a way to break free from this curse of stage fright. I told myself that either I would find a way to perform with ease and joy or I was going to give it up!

For over five years, I researched, trained and experimented with many methods offered by experts. I read books on eliminating stage fright and becoming fearless. I threw myself into the fire of experience. I discovered what worked, what didn’t and what just made things worse! I separated the superficial, flimsy, get-confident-quick schemes from the techniques and practices that really worked.

And I started feeling much more comfortable on stage. But I wasn’t really enjoying myself all that much. I just enjoyed getting through each performance unscathed.

Finally, in the year 2002, I discovered a simple yet life-changing process that made all the difference in the world. This powerful piece of the puzzle liberated me from all feelings of fear, anxiety and stage fright and gave me the joy and pleasure of being able to have the time of my life everytime I was in front of an audience.

Which reminds me, you can check out my singing site here.

This new level of confidence and freedom translated to every area of my life. Sure, there are times when I feel uncertain, times when I have attacks of self-doubt. But now I know what to do now. I know how to come back home to myself in a way that allows me to feel completely confident, powerfully present and fully alive.

Out of this experience and all that I learned along the way, I created the Unconditional Confidence program. I know without a doubt that this is one of the most powerful, transformational programs available for helping you become completely confident, authentic and free anytime you are speaking, performing or expressing yourself in any way.

My passion and primary purpose is to liberate people like you from the fear and anxiety that holds you back from becoming the star that you are and to give you the tools, experience and support you need to live a fully-expressed, magnificent life of outrageous freedom and joy. And to have a ton of fun all along the way!

Shy About Speaking Up in Public?

Who doesn’t want a magic pill or potion to remove all obstacles, fears and doubt?

Sound good?

Well, read the news. There’s a new anti-shyness nasal spray! Yep, that’s right. You can now snort confidence and assertiveness right up your nose.

It appears that scientists in London have been busy creating a nasal spray that will rid you of your shyness.

The drug releases the hormone oxytocin into the brain, increasing self-confidence and lowering anxiousness. It’s undergoing clinical tests right now, but scientists hope to have it out to the masses in just a few years.

Just a few years. Until then, you can decide to hide out, stay quiet and watch a lot of T. V.

Seems to me that anything you can snort up your nose will have a temporary, if any, effect on one’s self-confidence, but I could see how it might lower feelings of anxiety. Other drugs ease anxiety so why not nasal spray?

But wouldn’t you rather have the real thing? Wouldn’t you rather know that you can always be confident in any situation, even without your nasal spray? Just wondering.
