3 Enhancements I've made to my online program that you should steal - Ep #90

Is there a right or wrong way to structure an online program? Most the ideas business owners come up with are based on what other people have done… and many of them are the same strategies on rinse and repeat.

How to Create Trust by Setting and Communicating your Boundaries - Ep #82

The term “boundaries” has become common vernacular in the entrepreneurial world, but its meaning and implementation often get muddy. “Boundaries” are often declared at a breaking point of resentment and frustration when client communication steamrolls the schedule for far too long, resulting in a highly uncomfortable (and often avoided) conversation.

In today's episode, you’ll learn how to have this conversation confidently. We’ll discuss not only how to set boundaries that work for your life and business (and why you should have them in place), but more importantly how to communicate them in a way that builds client trust.

In this episode, we'll dive into...

  • what are boundaries and why we need to set them
  • how to be explicitly clear with your boundaries
  • how to be a stronger leader and communicate your boundaries in a way that influences other people for good
  • how to reinforce your boundaries in a proactive and positive way
  • real-life...

Ensure the energy and effort you're putting into growing your online business is pointed at the things that matter to you and will get you the results you’re after.

Should I script my videos with a teleprompter? - Ep #78

Should I script my videos? That's a question I hear often followed with…should I use a teleprompter? 

People think that there is just a yes or no, it's black and white, either your script or you totally go off the cuff and word vomit on video. We think that some people have this miraculous, natural talent for speaking off the cuff. But the truth is, they’re good because they’ve had experience.

Today, you’ll learn that there’s actually quite a gradient when it comes to scripting, you don’t have to choose one side. 

In this episode, I’ll share my take on teleprompters then walk you through five levels of scripting to help you find the best way for your current skill set, brand voice and personality.

In this episode we’ll dive into...

How To Speak Persuasively on Webinars & Stages - Ep #70

 

The words “selling” and “persuasion” illicit a visceral response from many.

When I looked up the definition on ye ole google months back, the Oxford dictionary defined it as: 

  • cause (someone) to do something through reasoning or argument
  • cause (someone) to believe something, especially after sustained effort;
  • convince.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t love the idea of being on the receiving end of that.

I’m reminded of the numerous political social media arguments between strangers who want others to believe what they believe so they scream louder with all caps.

Sustained effort.

Like if we just keep talking and pushing, we’ll wear someone down.

So when it comes to selling and persuading others to take action in our business, it’s no wonder that many shy away from it.

But what if I were to tell you that persuasion can be a good thing? That what I described below is actually a form of hubris and manipulation?...

Is Guest Speaking Wasting My Time? [My 2020 Speaking Recap] - Ep #68

 

What do you do when you feel like you've been doing a lot of work to put yourself out there speaking, but it's not actually driving leads? I recently got a question around whether or not guest speaking was a big fat waste of time.  Today, I answer this question head on and share insights on what I learned in 2020 (including how many guest speaking events I did in 2020). Plus share specific questions to help you troubleshoot when you feel stuck.

Episode Highlights

MYTH: Speaking has to equate to sales

I believe that speaking is far more than sales (though you DO want to ensure you have a clear path between speaking and revenue generating activity). But speaking is also about IMPACT.

You do not have to sell from the stage for a speaking event to be impactful, you don’t need 500 opt-ins for a guest lecture to be a success.  The beautiful part of running your own businesses is YOU define success. 

Speaking isn't always about directly driving leads,...

4 C's - Four Levers That Will Help You Become A Better Speaker

 

1. Clarity

Have you ever started talking and realized that you’re not entirely sure what point you’re trying to make? So you keep talking, thinking… it will become clear!

This is completely fine for everyday conversation (I mean, we all do it!), but when it comes to speaking on behalf of your brand clarity is critical.

Donald Miller, Author of Story Brand, says “When you confuse, you lose.” 

This is especially true with speaking.

Clarity is making sure that whenever you speak to an audience or a...

How to Stay Engaged with Your Visibility Goals When You Feel Like You're Not Making Progress - Ep# 66

 

When people make a shift in their careers or in their business, typically, they aren't scared of the big goal they set out for themselves. They aren't scared of success.

So in this raw, unplugged episode, I’m sharing tangible actions to take to stop the self sabotaging head game that happens when you start leveling up (especially when getting more visible).

This is a must listen for any Entrepreneur who’s working on a big level up in the next 12 months.
