We talked about balancing living in the moment and feeling grateful with that desire to move to the next level and discuss practical tips for doing so.

Sometimes we talk about how to do this indirectly, but today, we’re really talking about direct communication to book clients – through webinars and teleseminars.

Now, we’ve been talking about speaking a lot recently, and I have a really cool opportunity for you if you are interested in learning how to create and deliver presentations that get results. What do I mean by results? I mean clients, lead opt-ins, more speaking opportunities and amazing and powerful reactions from the audience. I recently had a client deliver her very first keynote. It was her very first time on the stage. I coached her through it and she received a standing ovation and got offered additional speaking opportunities – on her first time on the stage! Pretty amazing. So, I took some of the questions that she had as a new speaker and I created a video series that you can get, for free, today – it’s available at https://clearlyinfluential.com/video-training. Head on over there and get access to it. The first video is out now, but you’ll get access to all of them on that page.

Speak to your customers through storytelling with Maggie Patterson

Hey everyone, it’s Sandy and I’m here on episode 45 of TCIP – can’t believe we’re approaching episode 50 so soon. We’re going to have a special announcement for that 50th episode, but you’ll have to hang on for that.

Because… today is episode 45 and… it’s a pretty good one.

When I work with small business owners,and solopreneurs just like all of you out there, to develop talks and presentations, one thing that I always get asked about is storytelling. I feel like it is something we can easily overthink and get stuck on – especially when it is our own story. It’s tough to see what should and shouldn’t be shared. So, I thought, who better to talk us through it than Maggie Patterson.

Maggie is a communications strategist (aka professional storyteller) who works with entrepreneurs and small businesses to help them tell their stories in a way that helps them meet their business goals. Shes the host of the Marketing Moxie podcast and her work has been published on leading websites including The Huffington Post and Virgin.com Entrepreneurship.
