Sportscaster Kay Adams Reminds Women to be Confident for Solo Occasions: ‘You’re Fabulous’
"All it takes is meeting one person who wants to talk to you to make it all worth it,” Adams tells PEOPLE
Ever been nervous to walk into a room full of people totally solo? Kay Adams feels your pain — and is here to talk you through it.
The sports TV personality and host of FanDuel's Up & Adams, 37, gave some tips on how she stays confident for a nerve-wracking night of networking as part of PEOPLE x e.l.f.'s pep talks series.
“The trick to it is if you show up early, then whoever’s there has to talk to you. That’s literally it,” Adams admitted.
“And then you’ll know every person that walks into the room,” she explained. “Then by the time things split up, you’ll have a group and your choice of who you even want to hang out with and talk to.”

Adams, who has honed her conversational skills as a TV host (including at People) over the years, said it is all about having a positive frame of mind going into any event.
“Don’t make it seem like you’re working,” she said. “Get out of that mindset.”
Don't tell yourself, " '[I've] already worked a full day and now I’m going to this event, and I don’t want to be there. I don’t know anybody here,’ ” she continued. “That’s not it. You’re fabulous.”
