Today's episode is another one from the road. Pushing my son's carriage leads to many ideas and thoughts that need to be captured immediately! I smooshed two important topics together in hopes to inspire some thought around our behavior. The topics?Being unreasonable and apologizing. I put these two topics together because I think they are two things we could all work on and learn from. You'll hear more about why I'm bringing these things up now and how you can participate in sharing what you're learning about them too!

Email me at Angela@Speakersisterhood.com to share a text update or record your voice and send an audio file that could be on the next episode. I think it'd be really interesting to see what we all learn. 

Enjoy :)

Here is the sequel to my most popular episode ever, Episode 108: Four Ways to Look and Feel Powerful, Confident and Relaxed While Speaking. On today's show, I share an update on what happened after recording "The Answers Episode" and offer the following four tips:

1. Perfect is boring. Don't aim for perfect, aim for real.

2. Nail a few key points. Don't overstuff your burrito.

3. Know your weaknesses and fears so you can plan for them.

4. Embody your love for the topic (energy matters). 

I share lots of stories and examples that'll help you integrate these tips into your speaking both on stage and online. Also, here are a couple links I mention in the episode:

The most frequently asked question I've heard in the last three months is something along the lines of, "How do I give an online presentation that doesn't suck?" First off, it's hard! Second, it requires a little more thought than just showing up and talking. I put together a list of seven ways to improve at online presenting. But first, here are the seven reasons you suck at it:

1. You lost them at the seventh second when you hit a technical glitch related to your slides.

2. You're boring.

3. You won't turn your camera on.

4. Everyone sucks at online presentations.

5. You're talking AT your audience.

6. You didn't think about your audience.

7. You ONLY thought about your audience. 

See the full list including tips to improve here.
