Episode 109: Why You Need a Signature Message

Oct 10, 2022

Do you ever wonder why you should only have one signature message? Is it okay if you have more than one? The number of messages you want is entirely up to you, but as you know, crafting and building a message can take days, weeks, and even months. Too many messages at once can get tricky…
 
Instead of focusing on too many directions, you should have a clear message and point of view. In this episode, I explain why I teach, starting with one signature message to act as your foundation.
 
Highlights from this episode include:
  • The importance of a signature message (1:10)
  • Why I learned to focus on one message (2:10)
  • What happened next (4:50)
  • Start with one (7:15)
  • Beyond the first message (8:37)
  • Generalist vs. specialist (9:52)
  • Choosing the right message (12:59)
 
Do you have a message that drives you? What message can't you wait to share with the world? Send me a DM on Instagram or join the Take the Stage Facebook group! I'd love to hear what's on your heart.
 
I'd love it if y'all came to join the conversation in the Facebook group – Take the Stage Speakers and take a moment to share with us! If you aren't on Facebook, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share it with me.
