Speaking Your Brand: A Public Speaking Podcast

A question I get asked a lot is: How can I get paid to speak? One of the best ways is to speak and present for free. This goes for both in-person and online presentations and trainings. My guest today is Angela Hosking, who is a dynamic speaker and founder of Her One Tribe. We talk about strategies she used to get her first free speaking engagements (that you can use too), how she used online summits and webinars to build her email list, and opportunities that have come from the speaking she’s done.

More Episodes

Public speaking can certainly bring about nerves and uncertainty, whether you’re a new speaker or you’ve been speaking a while and want to try something new on stage or with a larger audience.

In this episode, Diane Diaz and I talk about:

  • The improv class we’re taking and what we’ve learned so far that can help you
  • Our own personal experiences of feeling uncertain about new experiences
  • How Diane is approaching hiking part of the Appalachian Trail next year (bears, oh my!)
  • How I’m approaching writing my book proposal and book this year (self-doubt, for sure!)
  • How some of our clients have approached dealing with uncertainty and fear
  • The benefits of uncertainty - that’s where growth comes from

 

Interestingly, the week we recorded this episode, I had received an email newsletter from Leo Babauta of Zen Habits about uncertainty. 

Here’s what he wrote:

“The first mindset shift to consider is that uncertainty is not bad, or something to be avoided. It’s a natural part of doing anything meaningful. In fact, feeling uncertainty is a great sign that you’re doing something challenging and meaningful.

“The second mindset shift is to see an uncertain path as a practice opportunity. It’s not something to run from, but a place to stay, so that we can grow, learn, and create.”

Embrace trying new things and having new experiences, both on stage and off.

Speaking of LinkedIn, have you purchased our LinkedIn for Speakers masterclass yet?

Users are loving it! Here’s a recent review:

“For months, I have moved the ‘learn to leverage LinkedIn’ task from one month to the next. Finding a class with the content, expertise and price point to fit my needs was a challenge. Finally success - I found Diane! She did a wonderful job focusing on the how's and why's of each topic. Her modules were well-organized to build upon one another and just the right length to absorb and apply the material. Because of the LinkedIn Masterclass, I am ready to leverage the platform to build my brand and grow my business. I could not be more pleased.”
