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. 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.

How To Include Your "Why" in your Brand with Dawn Foster - Ep #65

 

Creativity is a gift as an entrepreneur.

But sometimes our creativity can overtake our decision making in business.

Like when we get a little too precious with that canva graphic, trying to make “just the right quote card” that perfectly blends our aesthetic while making a statement.

But it gets little to no engagement on Instagram.

Meanwhile, a screenshot of your notes app gets hearts for a week!

And let’s get real, sometimes we get a little too attached to our marketing creative and make emotional decisions, versus data driven ones.

That’s exactly why I brought on marketing strategist Dawn Foster to share her approach, which is rooted in data, helping you incorporate you and your WHY into your brand while being making strategic.

 Topics Covered:
  • How do design and communication show up in your business and what means to bring those two things together
  • Infusing yourself into your brand to connect more with your audience
  • Distinction between...

In today's episode, I'm sharing with you my interview on the Power Your Purpose podcast with Megan Accardo. I share some of my best speaking tips, strategies and insights. Plus we get personal talking about my hearing loss and how that's affected my career, and core elements of my signature talk.

When you picture a “speaker”, I bet you picture a conference with a big stage. Well, besides the fact that conferences are a no-go in a pandemic, even if the live event world were open for business, you’d still have choices for sharing your message.

Episode Highlights

Before you jump to opportunities, make sure you have your strategy. Here’s a few questions to help:

How To Create Engagement with A Virtual Audience - Ep #60

 

Do you ever feel like you’re talking to an empty room when you present virtually? You’re not alone, many speakers have found the transition from in person speaking to virtual stages a bit rocky, not anticipating the lack of audience engagement.

But is it really possible to get virtual engagement or should you have to just accept the lackluster zoom stares?

In this episode, I’ll show you that it is totally possible and teach you how to drive engagement from your virtual platform. 

Episode Highlights

I often hear from aspiring speakers that they “thrive of off live engagement”, this made the transition pretty jarring when it came to transitioning to virtual. 

Ultimately, you should never rely on your audience as your source of energy.

 

So it starts with ensuring that you cut ties with that above narrative, and replace it with “I BRING MY OWN ENERGY”.

As Brendon Burchard often says, a power plant has to GENERATE its own...

MYTH: Your life is boring and you have no stories.
