What is it about speaking that is super freakin scary?😬

In one word — judgement.

It’s true, no matter what we do (or don’t do) in life, we will be judged. Judged for being too ___________, judged for how we look and sound. If we want to, we can think of a million ways in which the people “out there” will judge us.

It’s not so much the fear of being judged by the people we don’t know, but by the people we DO. What will my friends/coworkers/parents/enemies think of this? What about the people in my stories? How will they feel?

There’s no question that showing up and sharing our stories invites a level of judgement. But the only judge we need to worry about is ourselves. How will WE judge ourselves if we DON’T share our message? (and, if you’re a believer, than the big guy upstairs too).

So remember, speaking on camera or on stage is an ELEVATED experience which calls for ELEVATED emotions. The next time you think you’re gonna S*%# yourself when you’re about to speak, tell your brain that those nerves are EXCITEMENT and adrenaline. Use those heightened emotions to your advantage and channel them into your words.

If you don’t even know where to start, let’s brainstorm together. Send me a DM for a free chat. ☎️

**Don’t wait until you’re judging yourself for not sharing your message sooner**

Ok yup. I said it. Get ready for #toughlovetuesday

I talk to so many amazing leaders who are resistant to showing up online because of fears of being judged.

First, let me say that I 💯 get that!!

It’s normal to feel self-conscious when we do uncomfortable things. Things our friends and family aren’t used to seeing us do. Things we haven’t done before. Things that make us feel vulnerable.

So how do you do it anyways?

You get over yourself because the people you want to serve, the people who NEED to hear your true and beautiful message- THOSE are the people you need to worry about.

Serve THEM. Not your mom, your sister, or your best friend (you can serve them in other ways).

YOU are the perfect poster child for your brand and business. Remember, if you mess up, fumble, look foolish- it’s all OK. (Honestly, no ones paying that much attention anyways!)

So, are you ready to speak up, step into your power, and share your story?

I’m not good at selfie’s...

But I finally got a newer phone so I thought I should give it a try.

Social media is weird. Like I don’t know that we were ever meant to document and stare at ourselves as much as we do. Yet here we are, trying to make sense of it. Trying to show up, even when it feels awkward and unnatural.

We show up because we believe in what we have to give and we know this can be a huge tool for us to reach people. That doesn’t make it any easier.

What aspects of running a business, being a leader, or social media feel awkward or uncomfortable for you?

I hear so many leaders ask, “what do I do if I mess up, or forget what I was saying, or say the wrong thing?” The answer: Welp, you just keep going...

Talking online in “real time”, is not something we were born knowing how to do. It can feel super unnatural at first (especially if we are staring at our own image).

Yet, as entrepreneurs it’s becoming more and more imperative that we show ourselves in video. People want to know the face behind the brand, the real person behind the service or product.

Remember, speaking to your audience, your clients, your students, or your followers, doesn’t have to be perfect. No one is expecting you to be perfect ALL the time. You are allowed to fumble, mess up, make mistakes, you know, be a REAL human.

What you’re not allowed to do is hide. So, if you want to get better at speaking live, keep speaking. Keep showing up and keep being yourself. This is the only way you will truly connect with the people who need what you offer.

If you need support showing up in a way that feels authentic on video, let’s chat. Id love to help you get clear what may be stopping you from sharing your voice. Send me a DM now 😎

I interrupt your regularly scheduled media feed to offer you my super-duper special gift just for making it into 2021!

I love helping people find their voice confidence and captivate the people they want to serve, and let’s be honest, speaking on camera ain’t going away anytime soon. So, if you want to grow your business, your brand, or your visibility, than speaking on camera is a MUST DO right now.

No need to stress though bra, I’ve got ya! I’ve put together a simple checklist for you to have that will literally take you through a step-by-step method to help you take the guess work out of speaking on camera.

I know you want it. Come and get it. Click the link, drop your info, and Ta-Da, the checklist is in your inbox ... for free!!

You’re welcome! Now, go get that checklist, and get talkin’!

Sure, it’s just a day on the calendar, but there’s something emotionally liberating about endings. I love the release of letting go, and starting fresh.

Maybe it’s the fear of:
Failure
Success
Judgement
Disappointing others
Change
“Not enoughness”
Imposter syndrome

All of these will only continue to keep you playing small when I know you’ve got BIG dreams. (And yes, you deserve to have them come true).

So, what fear(s) are you ready to ditch in 2021 in order to start playing big? Mines in the comments 😉

“But you aren’t scared at all!” is what a client said to me on a call the other day.

Well, full disclosure:

•making videos
•speaking on camera
•putting myself “out her here”

Are all still scary for me too!

Yes, it takes a certain amount of courage to show up, but there’s 2 things that I rely on when it comes to speaking with confidence:

1. Vocal Technique
2. Mindset shifts

Just like learning to confidently write copy, bake a cake, or drive a car, learning how to use your voice will give you confidence when speaking on camera. That, plus an enormous amount of inner work on why sharing your voice matters is all you need to just go for it.

In my upcoming free masterclass (happening Wednesday, December 30th), I’ll be going more in depth about what it means to speak with confidence.

In it, you’ll learn:

✅the most common speaking blocks facing most people.

✅to identify what’s holding your voice back from connecting with your listeners.

✅3 simple warmups to prepare you for speaking anywhere, anytime.

✅how you overcome stage/video fright.

✅the ONE thing you can talk about to always captivate your listeners.

I’m a year where hugs are at a shortage, your voice has the power make a huge difference in someone’s life. I invite you to take this opportunity to use your innate instrument to connect more deeply than ever. Using your voice and sharing your story is the gift that means more than anything you can buy. Reach out to someone who needs to hear your voice. You never know the magic that can come from it.

On the darkest day of the year, give yourself time to get grounded, then look for the light.

I have NEVER seen this orchid with this many blooms on it. This was my mother-in-law’s and she passed away a year and a half ago. When I saw it was starting to bloom, I knew she was telling me to hold on. She was a woman of great faith and when I look at this gorgeous thing it reminds me of her strength and it gives me hope.

Times are weird. It’s ok to feel sad right now.

Let’s keep looking for signs of hope and courage because we all need that right now.

What signs of light and hope are showing up in your life?

I know what you’re thinking, no, I did not release a 1990’s pop album- but that was certainly the inspiration for this shot 😂.

It never looks the way you think it’s going to in your head, does it? It never sounds that way or turns out that way. That’s the thing about self-awareness. As aware as we might be, it’s hard to see ourselves as others do.

When was the last time you looked at yourself through someone else’s eyes? When was the last time you noticed and admired your own magnificence? Your own short comings?

Stop for a second and try it. Then give yourself a hug. You don’t have to be winning in all the areas because perfection ain’t real. You just have to keep growing. Relax, you’re doing ok.

I often make the argument that the way we sound is more important than what we are even saying. Our voice, like music, has the power to connect with people on a deeper level. Our voice can actually make someone vibrate and feel something, and those feelings are often linked to the opinions people will have of you.

This remarkable book #therighttospeak by #patsyrodenburg was the top of our reading list in voice and speech training during theatre school, and it still holds up so many years later.

If you’re at all interested in learning how to speak well, how to unlock barriers to your speaking, or how to keep your instrument well tuned, this book is a must read.

Otherwise, you can come to my 1 hour Masterclass, “Speak with Comfidence” happening in my private fb group at the end of this month! (DM me to get in)

Do you want to show up with more confidence in the classroom, the boardroom, the zoom room, online, or on stage?

It’s true, we all use our voices and have to show up to speak in one way or another. Speaking in front of people on and off line can be super intimidating and all those nerves wreak havoc on our vocal cords, (not to mention they get in the way of delivering the way we want to).

I’m passionate about helping people speak with the same confidence they have doing all the other things they love. That’s why I’ve created this masterclass, to give you tools you can implement right away regardless of where or how to spend your time speaking.

To register early, send me a DM or just go ahead and join my Facebook group “Captivate”.

Happy Monday friends!

Prioritize your needs...

If you’re like me, Monday’s are usually filled with optimism about all I want to enjoy in my week. Not just the tasks and “to do”s, but the things that I’m excited about (especially at this time of year).

But today didn’t feel that way.

Today, for whatever reason, I felt uninspired, unmotivated, and uncertain when I woke up.

There’s no quick fix to feeling this way and I’ve learned that I don’t need to “shrug it off” either.

What I need to do is prioritize my needs by:
- asking for support
- quieting my mind
- moving my body
- getting outside
- being creative

When I make time for at least 1 of those things, I’m 💯 certain, the inspiration will start to come and so will the motivation, and perhaps a little more certainty.

Whatever you’re dealing with this morning, this week, or this YEAR... how can you prioritize your needs today?

Let’s inspire one another by sharing the 1 thing you will do today (or this week) to prioritize your needs!

Now, to the mat I go!

Stories matter...

Whenever I start to doubt myself, or wonder if helping people express themselves and share their stories matters, I remember that every story has e power to help someone. If you think sharing your story is selfish, ask yourself who needs to hear it. How can sharing your truth change a life?

Also, it’s important to keep messages of gratitude. They lead you to your genius.

Is there a story inside of you waiting to be expressed?

12/03/2020

Everyday I’m afraid, but I won’t let that stop me.

Being an adult is hard work, man. Heck, being a human is hard, and not just in 2020 - It’s always been hard!

It’s hard to face our fears.
It’s hard to become who we are meant to become. And it’s even hard to stay silent and not.

In my chat today with the lovely @nameis.nicole over in my private Facebook group, we talked about fear and where it comes from. As a courage coach, Nicole really shed light on how we can identify our fears, name them, and then face them head on.

My big takeaway from our conversation was to ask myself when and where I’ve let fear dictate my choices. The times I’ve stopped myself because I was afraid. Afraid of the outcome (whether it was a positive or negative). Afraid of what people would think. Afraid of how I would have to change my lifestyle, my habits, or even who I was.

The interesting thing is that the times when I did face my fears, shared my story, and owned my truth, are also the times I experienced the most excitement, growth, and expansion.

So the next time you find fear creeping in to stop you from doing that thing, starting that relationship, standing up for that cause, or speaking your truth, as yourself not “what do I have to loose” but rather, “what do I (and the world) have to gain?”

Leave a ❤️ in the comments if you’re ready to face your fears in 2021!
