[Speaker Video Reels] Use what you have and be proud of it

Courage, Get booked as a speaker No Comments

It’s kind of a big deal to be creating my very first sizzle reel to showcase myself as a speaker.  I have been speaking to audiences big and small since the year 2002, and it’s been quite a journey for me.

If you’ve been following my work for a while, you know about my humble beginnings as a speaker and how I went ‘kicking and screaming’ to speaking on the advice of my very first business coach.  The truth is, I wasn’t very good at the start.  And I am being kind with my own words.

Getting better has been an area of focus for me. That means sourcing courage to show up as the best Nancy Juetten I can be, quirks and all.  That means being myself, using words the way I like to use them, and keeping it real.

This brings me to the point of this post, and it is this:

Wherever you are, well, there you are.

BE right there, and be proud of what you have achieved.

Use the best of what you have.  Believe in your heart, head, and gut that with every speech you give going forward, you’ll be better than ever and MORE YOU every time you show up.

Do not get caught in the comparison game by watching hours of demo reels for other speakers and wishing that your style or presentation is a match for theirs.

Be the best YOU and reflect that with the best of what you have to offer today.

Here is what I know for sure.

As soon as that first sizzle reel is complete, it will be time to lay the foundation for the NEXT one.

We are all only as good as our last best performance, and the best is always yet to come.

Don’t be singing the “What Could Have Been Blues …” and a story to get you into action

Be Heard, Recommended Resources No Comments

In April of this year, I was lucky enough to lead an intimate dinner event with some ‘movers and shakers’ up to big things. Kathi Suprata was among my honored guests. We shared a fabulous meal around a gorgeous dining room table. And our conversations were around how to raise our voices and make big impact.

Toward the end of the evening as we were wrapping up the event, we talked about the big, bold actions we were going to take as a direct result of spending that magical evening together.  Big, bold intentions were shared. And it was exciting and inspiring for all of us.

Then, Kathi serenaded us with one of her original songs — ‘The What Could Have Been Blues.” Just weeks later, Kathi went to see her doctor. She had been experiencing low grade fever and discomfort and asked her doctor to diagnose the problem.

The diagnosis in this case is cancer.

Kathi has an amazingly upbeat attitude to her situation and is inviting magic and miracles to manifest.

I want to do my part. Please send healing energy, magic and miracles in the direction of Berkeley, California where Kathi and her fiancee are making plans to beat this thing.

If you have been delaying doing anything in your life or work until SOMEDAY instead of taking action NOW, I hope Kathi’s song — ‘The What Could Have Been Blues’  — is the wake-up call you need to move forward.

You never know what tomorrow will bring.

Make the most of TODAY and speak and sing your message so it can be heard to make the impact you are here to make.

>> Finally, if you lead live events anywhere in the USA and want to bring Kathi’s music to your stage, I know Kathi would be honored and thrilled to inspire your tribes to say YES to the right opportunities that can bring their dreams alive today.

Watch her joy and listen to the lyrics. They will get you straight to the heart.

Reach her at kathisuprata@gmail.com.

20 minutes of stage time can turn into thousands of dollars — It just happened for me!

Be Heard, Business Success, Get booked as a speaker, Measuring Results No Comments

What if you could turn 20 minutes of stage time into thousands of dollars?

What could happen for you?

Last Friday, I was fortunate to take the stage for 20 minutes at a live event that was attended by aspiring speakers up to big things.

There were 36 people in the audience of whom two were already my clients. When the talk was over, 31 of them had rushed to the back of the room to make a purchase from me.

31 buyers from 34 potential clients represents a 91% conversion rate!

This was the right audience for my message about making your speaker one-sheet rock. BELOW is access to a clip from the 20 minute talk I gave from Mark Grainger and Shannon Law’s Big Impact Speaker event.

I brought my full, quirky essence to their stage, delivered content that served a specific need for their audience, and was fortunate to be introduced in such a powerful way that the audience was set up to fall in love at ‘hello.’

I hope this inspires you to take stages in service to your perfect audience so you can welcome results that delight you, while boosting your confidence big time.

This brings me to a few questions for you.

>> What specifically are you doing to get yourself booked on live and virtual stages?

>> Are you reaching out to decision makers?

>> Are you hosting your own live or virtual events?

If you do nothing, nothing happens. And when you ask for what you want and take action, amazing things can unfold for your audience, for you, and also for the marketplace.

What is it going to be for you?

If you’d like to learn more about how to make speaking rock for your best audience with your best message front and center, I’ll be interviewing Shannon Law via BeLive.TV on July 11 at 3 p.m. Pacific from my business fan page.  Join us and bring along some of your speaker and expert friends!  The more, the merrier!

This is a generous clip from my talk from Mark and Shannon's Big Impact Speaker event from last Friday. The way they introduced me touched my heart in a big way and the audience enjoyed my talk. It cuts off near the end because my phone storage was at capacity. That is a lesson learned for the next time. >> Check phone storage before recording the next big gig. Oy!

I am such a fire starter!

Be Heard, Business Success No Comments

I am such a fire starter!

Last week, I hosted a VIP Raise Your Voice – Make Your Impact Dinner Mastermind in Portland, Oregon.

I reached out to the ‘movers and shakers’ in the industry who live and work in that city and extended an invitation for them to join me for dinner around a conference table.

Why?

Two reasons:

>> I wanted to make the most of my trip to Portland, Oregon as I was the featured guest speaker for eWomenNetwork.

>> I love connecting and creating across the dining room table. It’s my favorite way to serve so  why not do what I love and see what magic can be co-created to the success of others and for myself, too!

The event was magical in so many ways.

It turns out that many of the experts in the room were “Facebook Live Virgins.”  I took matters into my own hands to slay that dragon right away as I saw, heard, and celebrated every guest around the table in a spontaneous Facebook Live Broadcast direct from our boardroom.  We even broke into song as we introduced everyone and her or his big mission to all who watched us live and continue to enjoy the replay.

Most notable for me is that so many of my ‘mover and shaker’ guests were inspired by the event to the point that they decided to do Facebook LIVE interviews about their own ‘aha’ insights and take-away lessons.

This awesome event idea I cooked up served up a reason for luminaries to speak up, show up, and inspire their tribes, too.  I am awe-struck about this. Here are links to their live broadcasts so you can meet them, too.

If you are a ‘mover and a shaker’ up to big things and want to join the Raise Your Voice – Make Your Impact conversation,  I am leading three additional events like this throughout this summer in Newport Beach, CA and Bellevue and Bellingham, WA.

August 23 – Bellevue, WA

August 31 — Bellingham, WA

You’ll receive your digital copy of the ever-popular and super useful Bye-Bye Boring Bio Workbook plus a bundle of 5 audio masterclasses to support  you in boosting your credibility, authority, Bio Wow Factor, visibility, and improving your skills as a master of new client enrollment. This is a $297 bundle of awesomeness that  delivers instantly to your inbox.

At the dinner event, you’ll also:

  • Take the Get Ready, Get Known, Get Paid QUIZ to know where you stand so you can plot your best next steps forward;
  • Get introduced to the “Get Known in Your Own Backyard and Beyond” System to guide you to the visibility, credibility, authority, and opportunities you most desire;

  • Learn how to use the ‘Signature Talk Delivery Cheat Sheet’ to give you confidence to deliver your message right every time, even in the clutch moments; and;
  • Learn to create and deliver an offer than converts from the live or virtual stage.

Every group is different. And when we gather with the intention to elevate our conversations as we raise our voices, we all get inspired to make big impact in service to those we are here to serve.

There are just 11 seats at every table to insure intimacy, connection, and impact.

Does one of them have YOUR NAME on it?

July 27 – Newport Beach, CA

August 23 – Bellevue, WA

August 31 — Bellingham, WA 

With so much bounty to be shared and just a few seats to offer at each event, this is for serious guests who are eager to give, receive and show up fully to benefit big time.

I hope to meet you one day very soon as we raise our voices and make some powerful, important noise!

Let the fire starting continue in a city near you.

Got 20 minutes to ignite courage to BE THE EXPERT you want to be known for —  starting NOW? This interview might deliver on that promise. Thanks Doug Foresta for the opportunity to share. Thanks also to mentors past and present who delivered the kick in the pants for me to do this myself. None of us does this alone… The working link to the gift I offered is this one.

Getting Ready for a Sizzle Reel …

Get booked as a speaker No Comments

I’ve been gathering images and screen captures from my contributions to the live and virtual stage for a long time. Tonight I pulled together a video montage to showcase my credibility, authority, stage presence, and hot topics using an easy to use program called Animoto. I’m excited to refine it further while I await the videos of recent talks given from the live stage. My aim is to bring this to life even more for the decision makers who need to see me in action before they say YES. Step by step, it’s all coming together, and that feels great.

Opportunity for Visibility is Everywhere …

Article PR, Networking PR No Comments

frankie_nIf you are open to the idea of getting more visibility, you’ll find it everywhere — especially in your own backyard.

You may know that I run a hobby business called The Very Important Pup Hotel. It’s my ’empty nest’ project that brings happy vacationing pups to my home when their owners go on vacation. It’s a fun way to welcome wagging tails and happy paws into my life, now that my son is attending university.

Well, not long ago, one of my happy clients posted a favorable review about this service on a Facebook page for our neighborhood called NextDoor. Another neighbor saw the review, reached out, and asked if I could look after her French Bull Dog named ‘Frankie’ for a few days.

We met for a ‘meet and greet’ and decided to do business. While we were ditch-the-guesswork-cover-draft-2chatting, I asked her what she did for a living. She edits the Points Living Magazine that is distributed in the adjacent neighborhood to where we live. I asked for a copy, and she happened to have one in her car. In return, I shared a copy of my husband Steve’s recently released book, Ditch the Guesswork: Creating Reliable ROI for Time-Starved Investors.

Steve and I enjoyed looking after ‘Frankie’ over the weekend, and when the client returned from her trip, she said she loved Steve’s book, thought my business was a hoot, and asked if she could write a story about us for the magazine.

Within a few days, photos were taken and shared, answers to interview questions were provided, and the magazine layout was shared for our blessing. We managed to talk about all three of our businesses in the interview and inserts links in the text to make it easy for our neighbors to learn more about us. In a week or so, everyone in the neighborhood will receive a copy of the glossy magazine in their mailbox.

I can’t wait to see what happens next and hope this story about being open to opportunity can open your eyes to great ways to get more visible in your neighborhood so you can do more of what you love.

The magazine feature is below. Read it and grin!
