Speaking School for Women is back and it starts this Monday, October 1st. I've been getting lots of questions from women who are interested in taking the course and I thought I'd address them here, in case you're asking yourself the same things. Speaking School is a live, 6-week online course I teach that helps women learn how to become a paid, professional speaker. I teach how to build a brand, create a marketing plan, we put together a speaker one-sheet, setup a speaker plan, make a signature talk, work out pricing guides, and more. This covers all the bases so you don’t have to wonder what you’re missing or doing wrong. Here are the questions I cover in the episode: 

  1. What if I don’t know what I’d speak about?
  2. I don’t know that I’m ready to be a paid speaker. How do you know when you’re “there?”
  3. Can I do it as a part-time job? AND how long does it take to get paid?
  4. I feel like a fraud asking for money and imposter syndrome shows up every time. How do you get over that so you can ask for money?
  5. What if I don’t like marketing?

If you've been asking yourself any of these questions, today's episode is for you! Learn more about Speaking School and register here.

Welcome back to the podcast!! It’s good to be back in your ears after three months off. On today’s episode, I invite Lenore Braun, the club director of the Speaker Sisterhood, and Amber Ladley, the creative director, to the show to discuss our life-changing summers. Last time we talked, I told you my podcast was taking a vacation, but that wasn’t the only thing that took a hiatus in June. This summer, along with the core team that comprises my business, I took a major step back from working on everything so we could take a breather and get more perspective on what we were building. In this special episode, number 100, we lay out some of the biggest learnings, mistakes, ah-ha moments, and regrets from our summer break. 

We share:

  • how we planned to spend our time and how we actually spent it
  • how we dealt with discomfort and anxiety from taking time off 
  • unexpected learnings and lessons
  • how taking time off has helped us claim the stage in life and when speaking
  • advice for others who may be burnt out and needing to take a break but don’t know where to start and don't know how to ask for it
  • our biggest regrets and what we’ll do differently next time
