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...
Before jumping on the PR/Media blitz train that promises piles of leads, exposure and the coveted “AS SEEN ON” section for your website, slow down and set your strategy. In this episode, I’m sharing 3 essential questions to consider BEFORE chasing media opportunities.

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.

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:
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.
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?...
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.
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,...
In today's episode, I'm going to teach you four levers that you can adjust to become a better speaker. Pinpointing exactly where to focus will allow you to self-evaluate so you can make quick progress with your development. I believe that when you are more intentional with your message, speaking can become your best marketing tool.
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...
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. People are scared of starting off and being seen as small. <—- Brendon Burchard shared something similar to this last week during a training event and it really got me thinking about where many of my clients and students get stuck.
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.

This is a reality. It's no wonder we think like this because in the Facebook groups and the programs we're in, we see the...
