Speaking Your Brand: A Public Speaking Podcast

As I’ve worked with nearly 200 women, I’ve seen how the same things trip us up (self-doubt, imposter syndrome), as well as what liberates us as women - our voices and our stories. Until recently, I haven’t seen how feminism applies to how we show up as speakers. Being a feminist speaker has nothing to do with your content - you don’t have to be talking about feminist theory or only to women. Listen in to hear 3 ways you can start adopting a feminist approach to your speaking now.

Speaking Your Brand: A Public Speaking Podcast

What’s just as important as visibility is our actual voices as women and what we’re saying: “If you can see it *and* hear it, you can be it.” In this episode, Diane Diaz and I talk about the history and current state of women speaking out in public, along with what we can do by being more intentional with the voices we choose, unsilencing ourselves, and developing the confidence to do so.

I’m sharing 7 books and 4 podcast series that have impacted me personally and professionally because they’ve made me think about being a speaker (and an entrepreneur) in a different way.

Before you ask yourself *what* goals you want to achieve as a speaker, ask yourself *who* do you want to *be* as a speaker and then what do you need to do to become that?

Taking on that identity is what will make the goals real to you.

This has been so helpful to me because traditional goal setting has never worked that well.

I’d make a goal, like guesting on 2 podcasts a month or doing 1 speaking engagement a month.

But, I never felt truly motivated to keep pursuing them. I’d give a bit of an effort and then it would fizzle out.

Until I read a book earlier this year about a different way of setting and achieving goals: WHO you want to be comes first. Then, the goals and habits follow.

In this episode, you’ll learn a different way of setting goals:

  • First, we go through specific questions to reflect on the speaking and visibility you did this year (Diane shares hers)
  • Visualizing the big picture of what you want with a journaling exercise
  • Stepping back and thinking about WHO you want to become as a speaker
  • Identifying what you’ll need to do to make that happen, using a handy acronym S.E.A.M. we came up with
