How Public Speaking Built My Businesses: Lessons and Mistakes | Speaking Your Brand

Subscribe to the podcast!

Public speaking has undoubtedly been one of the key factors in building 3 different businesses over the last 18 years.

You’ll hear the lessons and mistakes I learned, so you can use speaking effectively and strategically as part of your overall marketing strategy, whether you’re newer in your business or years in.

Why does public speaking work so well as an entrepreneur?

  • Being a speaker gives you instant credibility and authority.
  • Putting your message out there gives you invaluable feedback (real-time market research).
  • It generates leads and clients and fast tracks the sales process.
  • It grows your network and the number of people who know what you do.

If you’d like to make speaking and visibility a focus this year, we’d love to work with you in our Master Your Speaking program.

It’s a combination of one-on-one individual coaching where you work with us to create your signature talk in a Virtual VIP Day plus you get bi-weekly group calls for 3 months as you learn how to position, promote, and market yourself to get better speaking engagements, including paid ones.

We’re accepting applications now for the few spots we have left. (This is a small program – max 12 women.)
