Want to know how to get present, push through discomfort, and become more magnetic in the process?
When your mind is racing all the time, it’s difficult to slow down and be present and presence is QUEEN when it comes to communication. That means keeping your nerves, insecurities or wandering thoughts at bay to focus on what (or who) is right in front of you. But it isn’t just your mind that creates presence, it starts with your body.
Today’s guest, mindfulness educator Athea Davis is helping us explore the connection between our bodies and our minds, sharing how yoga and mindfulness practices can be powerful tools for showing up for our audiences in a bigger way.

Want to know the real secret to finding your IT FACTOR? It’s being YOU.
The more we understand ourselves, the more authentic we can be.

When getting ready for a big talk, I bet you spend the bulk of your preparation time developing your content. Whether it's creating a mind map or an outline, writing a script to practice from, or jumping straight to it and creating a PowerPoint.
Regardless, I bet you spend more time creating the content than practicing HOW you’ll deliver your message.
But remember this: Your words matter (work on those), but how you deliver them matters far more. Because even when not speaking, you’re communicating to your audience.
When you embrace this and get more intentional with how you communicate, you become far more influential. Learn how in today’s episode as I introduce my Delivery Core Four and share how you can elevate your skills.
What’s the one Delivery Core Four area that you really need to focus on this week? Do you need to get better with your tone, slow down your pace, or practice using your hands? Whatever it is,...
Last weekend I attended Amy Porterfield’s Entrepreneur Experience Conference. If you weren’t there, just let me tell you it was amazing. I learned so much and I get the opportunity to share a little of what I learned in this episode of the Finding Your It Factor Podcast.
One of the biggest takeaways was my realization that sometimes we focus so hard on how we show up on stage, but we don’t put a lot of energy and attention into how we show up for ourselves.
Are you guilty of that?
I loved watching Amy answer questions during Q & A time. She actually listened. She actually cared. She brought humility and passion and compassion and presence to each conversation.
I bet if you thought about it, you do the same with your clients and followers, right?
But what about you? Do you treat yourself the same way? Do you show up for yourself when no one else is around?
Take a listen to this off the cuff episode as we talk about how to...
Are you a self proclaimed personal development junkie like me? Podcasts, audiobooks, actual books, online courses… scrolling IG or FB for doses of inspiration? It can fuel you with ideas for an ongoing list of dreams and goals… but it can also leave you feeling, at times, less than enough.
It’s like those dreams and ideas become this looming to-do list of things you’ve yet to accomplish. And you realize that sometimes the goal you set for yourself isn’t the goal you truly want.
It’s a terrible feeling to know that you could be making strides toward your big goal, but those other items on your list make you feel…stuck. And out of sheer stubbornness, you just don’t want to take an item off your to-do list.
…and so, it sits there, week after week and month after month, making you feel guilty about the lack of progress you’ve made. Sometimes preventing you from working on the goals that really...
If you want to crush your business goals, you've got to embrace speaking opportunities. Does that mean you need to jump on stage in front of 1,000 people right away? Heck no.
When most entrepreneurs think of speaking, they think of either professional speakers charging a fee for their talk or speaking for free to get experience… to eventually command a fee. But this concept of trading money for time wasn’t why you built your business. And speaking for free without a strategy isn’t going to lead you towards the results you want. The good news is that these aren’t the only ways to speak to get results in your business.
In this episode, I’m sharing three specific speaking strategies you can use in your business to achieve your revenue goals. We’ll talk about the similarities and differences between speaking for a fee, speaking to sell your programs, and speaking to grow your audience.
We’ll also talk about...
You don’t need another COVID-19 update, so how about we skip to something I hope will be more contagious:
Monday night on my local community Facebook page, I witnessed 93 neighbors verbally attack a member of our town when she encouraged people to join an event happening at the local pub.
Sure, it wasn't a brilliant idea. Our governor is encouraging (not yet mandating) self quarantine. Eating dinner at a restaurant defeats that purpose.
But did it help the situation to call her a "f**king idiot" a "waste of a human" or question if she was "trying to murder us all"?
Of the 93 comments, at least 85 were just as harsh.
That woman is someone’s wife, mother and daughter.
You might be appalled.
You might be rolling your eyes agreeing that the woman is an idiot.
You might be reminded of other posts you’ve seen that got heated quickly (*ahem* pretty much all political convos or the...
Does the thought of speaking on stages get your excited or make you want to hide? As an online entrepreneur, you want to position yourself as an authority and speaking on stages is one of the fastest ways to establish yourself. But which comes first? Authority so you get invited to speak, or speaking to be seen as an authority? Many business owners sit on the sidelines waiting for the right moment in their business to step into the spotlight… and that’s a mistake. Finding the courage to get on stage, can be scary. And that’s why today I’m sharing with you 7 ways to incorporate speaking into your business besides a keynote (aka big stage) presentation. Listen in to learn how you can establish your authority and make a big impact while growing your audience.
