Your New Mantra: For Now, Not Forever - Ep #118

How do I niche down and figure out my area of expertise, make it specific and still resonate but not abandon the wealth of knowledge and experience I can bring to the table? How do I make hard decisions in my business?

These are some of the questions I hear most often. It's a constant battle most budding entrepreneurs are grappling with often early on in their business and even my students inside my program, Speak Up to Level Up, struggle with this too.

Today's theme that will become our mantra is this phrase: 

It's for now, not forever. 

We have this deep feeling that we're meant to do something bigger — a realization of how gifted and incredibly skilled we are and that we could help other people. 

But there comes a point where we doubt ourselves, get a little dramatic at times and think everything is important and feel permanent leaving us second guessing all our decisions. 

Chances are it’s likely you’ve felt this before. 

But what if we...

The Confidence Booster Episode - Ep #117

Confidence. It’s the word that I hear most when people tell me their goals related to speaking. People often consider it a feeling that you either have or must fake it until you magically do. How is it that we can be so confident in some areas, but insecure in others?

Today I’m sharing with you where confidence comes from and how you can consistently grow it for yourself. So if you’re struggling with confidence because you're venturing into something new or struggling with self doubt, this message today is for you.

When You Struggle to Own Your Expert Status - Ep #114

A lot of times as we're growing in our businesses or in our careers, we have a tendency to shy Have you ever felt uncomfortable calling yourself an “expert”? On one hand, you have incredible experience and knowledge with your topic, but on the other, it feels there are so many more people who are qualified. Leaving you with the question, who am I to… 

...speak on that stage. 

… Post that video. 

… Create that program.

… call myself an expert.

It’s likely you’ve felt this before. You know that you have a great deal of expertise and know that your experience is valuable that it can help and teach others, BUT you still second guess yourself at almost every turn.

Zafira Rajan: Bringing Personality Through Your Voice (even if you're an introvert) - Ep #106

As a speaking coach, I’m good with words.

I used to feel weird saying that, like I was being braggadocious, but now I’m confident in my skills (I mean, if we can’t own the skills we’ve worked hard to master, how can we expect others to believe in us?!)

Seriously. Pass me a mic and I’ll deliver an inspirational pep that will make you laugh, tear up with emotion and teach you something that will stick with you.

BUT, give me a blank piece of paper, or empty google doc and ask me to write a paragraph of inspiration? 

I’ll take my seat on the struggle bus.

I’ve learned that it’s one thing to speak words and another to write them.

The former comes naturally for me, the later… I’ve had to develop.

I’ve also learned that it’s the opposite for many… with writing feeling more natural and controlled and speaking… total deer in headlights!

Take my client Zafira Rajan.

She’s literally a professional...

That podcaster in your ears has become a trusted biz bestie that you rely on each week, you find yourself saying the phrases of your fav business coach, you jump at the chance (or at least pay attention) when you see that they’re speaking at an upcoming virtual summit even if you’ve heard them speak many times.

Whether that’s Brendon Burchard, Amy Porterfield, Lewis Howes, Anthony Trucks, Rachel Rogers, Brene Brown, Gary V, or whoever is on your online mentor list, it seems that whenever they open their mouth, it’s pure gold.  Each has their own distinct personality, communication style and many different business models. So the question is - was there some kind of unicorn magic passed to them in utero? Or are there commonalities that we can use as a road map for becoming more influential?

Today I’m going to share with you 3 distinct behaviors adopted by the highly...

[Monday Motivator] Let Go - Ep #99

I just wrapped up the 75 Hard Program where I fully committed to my health, growth and development for the last 75 days. And I've gotten lots of questions around, how do you do all these things and still show up consistently?

Join me today on my morning walk as I share a quick conversation around the idea of letting go of this vision of needing to get everything perfect and just go get things done to move your business and life forward.

 
Shareworthy Insights:
  • Let go of thinking that you need to do everything perfectly.
  • Stop making your life difficult for no reason at all instead focus on what are the most critical things that need to get done to move your business and your life forward. 
  • Get real with yourself and ask, do you really need to do all of these things? Make the conscious effort to only choose those that really matter and constantly let go of the things that are not.
  • Know that there are so many productivity roadmaps and tools available to us but they're not...
