Truth be told, I suffered from this ailment for quite a while.
I accepted invitations to speak, spent hours to create original material, and rehearsed my presentations for hours before showing up live or by webinar to deliver them.
With high hopes and even higher expectations, I would show up and deliver the best content I knew how to deliver.
And, sad to say, my results were disappointing.
What I wanted was to welcome a rush to the back of the room or to my online shopping cart to invest in the products or programs I was promoting. Instead, I’d welcome warm applause, new fans and friends, and go home with a basket of business cards and disappointing sales.
Not only did they love me and not buy from me, I was guilty of a number of sins as a presenter.
== I over delivered on content and went “over the arc” way too often. That didn’t invite sales and created exhaustion for me.
== I needed to rethink the value of structure and shift my thinking to believe that “structure is friend not foe.” For an artist like me, that was BIG.
== My program descriptions needed a booster shot of results based titles to be even more action inducing. This was a “duh moment” for sure.
== Being a student of the structure and the template is one thing. Learning to put ME in the presentation was another thing entirely. I was fighting that tooth and nail.
It was maddening to tell you the truth. For as hard as I was working, my results were just not good enough.
At the end of 2013, I got to that “now or never” point where something had to change.
I got serious about finding a teacher to guide my transformation as a virtual workshop leader and speaker. Master Workshop Leader and Trainer Callan Rushoffered many of her best content for free last November to help ease my pain. I quickly consumed her book, event filling blue print, and special report and got serious about improving my results.
So impressed I was with the quality of her free materials that I invested in her Magnetize, Monetize, and Mesmerize training.
I declared 2014 to be my year to significantly improve the design and delivery of my offerings for BIG results.
My results have been specific, terrific, and they keep getting better.
== I attended the Magnetize training in January of 2014. En route home from Canada to Bellevue, I wrote an email to serve my tribe with powerful education and sent it when I arrived home. To my delight, I earned back my full tuition in the three programs within 48 hours with paid enrollments in my own Worldwide Virtual Get Your Story Done Workshop.
== Clients, fans, and followers have noticed the change in my presentations and voted with their purchases at the shopping cart and in th back of the room when I speak.
== Year to date for 2014, my sales are up 30%.
== Now that I have a proven way to structure and deliver my presentations, I spend significantly less time preparing new material so my focus can be on delivering the material I create with impact, authenticity, and PRESENCE.
== I think the biggest lesson I have learned from participating in the training is to bring my full self to every talk — in all my colors. The more REAL I am, the better my results.
When this student was ready, the right teacher appeared, and my business is so much better today as a result.
Here are 3 blunders I have made that I hope you’ll avoid along your journey to get known and paid. Here is a timely solution, too. Join JV Insider Circle by Sunday, April 6. Thanks Milana Leshinsky and Rich German for creating a thriving community to lift us all as we climb.
You want more clients, speaking gigs, and media interviews.
And your bio is not telling your best most client attracting story.
Let’s solve that problem once and for all — this Wednesday, Jan. 22 from noon to 3 p.m. PST at the Get Your Client Attracting Story Done Virtual Worldwide Workshop. (And replays are provided for all who register!)
After hearing folks I like, trust and respect speak so highly of the impact they are making and the results they are welcoming in their businesses through the use of automated webinars, I decided to jump in and create one of my own.
Thanks to the good folks at Stealth Webinars, my first automated webinar is ready to share with the world.
It was so much easier than I thought it would be. I shared the video and general direction through a “support ticket” less than 24 hours ago, and it is ready to share already. And I didn’t have to deal with the technology piece. They did it for me. What a revelation!
The goal of my first automated webinar is to accelerate the healing of boring business bios in time for the New Year. It’s an “all of the help, none of the hype” presentation.
Would you like to Beta Test it and share your user experience? Let me make it easy.
Here is the link to visit. Opt in, watch, download the PowerPoint, enjoy, and share with others if you are so moved.
I’ll stay tuned to receive your comments about the webinar experience here at the blog, and I promise to respond quickly to your comments because getting this right is of service to you, to me, and potentially many others. Thank you.
Is it just another gobbeldy-gook statement? Not at all. It’s nothing less than the key to getting everything you can out of video. It’s the secret to connecting with your ideal prospects. And it’s the cure for the common video. Authentic video marketing means being yourself, but it means much more than this. In this video, you’ll go down the winding path that leads to clarity in what you’re doing on video and how you’re doing it. Along the way you may recognize a few characters. One of them may even be yourself. Authentic video marketing is not just a nice-sounding statement. It’s going to be a major element of your success in 2013 and beyond!

Brad Tollefson of VLST Media Strikes Again. I reached out to tap his video talents to create a short video to showcase my most powerful business lesson learned to date. I think he hit the ball out of the park.
I’d love for you to take a look and comment about the video. Does this lesson resonate? What is your most powerful business lesson to date? Would love to hear.
And, if you need video magic, Brad gets my highest recommendation.
