How to Focus on Inner Work to Achieve that Outer Glow - Ep #20

 

We all want that outer glow. And I'm not talking about that dewy skin, outer glow like Giselle. I'm talking about magnetism. Or as we call it around here, the “It Factor”. 

Today I’m sharing that the secret to embracing your “It Factor”  is the inner work you do to grow yourself personally and professionally.  You and I both know that personal growth is a huge determining factor for online business success. But when things get so busy and schedules fill up with launches, client calls, project plans, emails (all the things!), it’s to find time for personal and professional development. 

You can’t find it, you have to create it. In this episode I’m sharing three specific actions that you can take -- that don’t require much effort or time -- that will help you take small steps (and big leaps) to create that outer glow and achieve those big goals.

A Seemingly Invisible Disability - The Real Story Behind My Hearing Loss and How it Led to My Superpower - Ep #17

 

It surprises most people to learn that I have a hearing loss and often leads to a lot of questions, especially since I’ve built my coaching business on the topic of communications.

For today’s episode, I’m going unscripted and getting super raw *bring the tissues* to share with you the real truth behind my seemingly invisible disability (and how it led to my superpower).

P.S… did you know more than 5% of the world's population – or 466 million people – has disabling hearing loss. That’s 432 million adults and 34 million children. While you might not be one of them, you more than likely know someone who struggles with their hearing. I hope this episode gives you some insight into their world. 

[Stats from the World Health Organization]

Was I born with it? No. Am I deaf? No. How has it impacted my life? So. Many. Ways.

The Art of Communication: More than Just Words - Ep #09

 

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.

Take Action:

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,...

A Unexpected Lesson from Q&A - Ep #08

 

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...

How to Get Unstuck and Achieve Goals that Actually Matter - Ep #07

 

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...
