How do I find opportunities to speak? How do I get noticed and chosen to be a guest on the right podcasts and events?
These are some of the questions I hear most often, entrepreneurs who understand that guest speaking on other people’s platforms is one of the best ways to quickly grow an engaged audience.
But the question is, is it really about finding MORE opportunities?
Sometimes yes, but what I find is that many business owners grossly underutilize the opportunities they already have, missing out on previous connections (and results).
Maybe you’re here because you’ve been doing the work to put yourself out there.
You’ve identified a topic or two that you’re pitching to podcast hosts. You’ve most likely already taught a workshop or webinar, you’ve pushed past the fear or speaking in front of groups (mostly) because you’ve accepted that getting visible and putting yourself out there is part of growing your online business.
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...
Have you noticed how the mentors you follow online seem to have this magnetic pull? 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...
There's a shift happening in the online business space as consumers are becoming increasingly turned off by overt selling tactics. So how can entrepreneurs adapt to the new way of selling online? This is a question that today's guest and Sales Enablement Strategist, Luis Báez will answer (plus a whole lot more).

Not only do we talk about how live challenges create quick wins and momentum to sales, we get real talking about transitioning from revenue-based goals to ones of impact.
Putting yourself out there can feel HARD. And being completely real, BOLD and opinionated? It can be terrifying (what will people think?!). So while many say they WANT to stand out, they choose instead to blend in.
But not today’s guest.

In this episode, Jill opens up and shares her struggle of self-doubt, how she stays future focused and positive by changing her thoughts, and of course, we’ll talk about how Jill approaches speaking on a stage.

You already know that video is a FIRE strategy for connecting with your audience. And those who put a little effort into the quality of your videos (set, lighting & audio), raise the bar for how you perceive their brand.

Is one of your goals to write a book? Listen closely:
Writing a book is going to be hard no matter what, so you've got to be committed to doing it.
Not only do you have to WRITE, you also have to figure out publishing and marketing.
If I’m being super honest, not knowing what I don’t know is what’s kept my dream of writing a book as just that-- a dream, not a goal.
So when I got a ping from business strategy coach and mentor, Tina Tower, asking if I’d be interested in chatting about the real and raw experience of book writing with my audience, I jumped at the chance to ask her ALL THE QUESTIONS.
