Welcome Brendon

I too am still a student and I too had some of the same problems. What I found was that, if I look lead on something that I was strong in, I gained the confidence to lead other groups. In my baking class, I was 1 of the first to lead the class in our production days. Since baking is my strong suit, I did pretty well; created a production schedule, recalculated recipes for mass production, assigning teams, etc. Stay focused on the task at hand, think of nothing else, and you should be fine.

Good luck!
