Being sure that you’re going to do exactly what you want to do or say at just the right time is something that makes anyone nervous but having the confidence to step up to the plate no matter what the situation.
What you want to do when you talk to someone important about an important situation is make sure that you are getting everything you need beforehand. You want to make sure that you are taking all the information into account and that you are being persuasive in getting them to see your side of things and want to do what you say.
