Episode 123: How and When to Start Speaking

Jan 16, 2023

Have you ever wondered when you should start getting out there and sharing your message? Or maybe you know that God has called you to be a speaker, but you don’t know exactly what your message is yet. (If the latter is you, what I DON’T want you to do is go out there and create a message for every speaking opportunity that comes up – trust me, I’ve done it!). Whether you have a message or not, tune in to find out what I DO want you to do to craft the message you are called to share.

In this episode, I give you some tips and tasks to help you craft your message and move your audience. I also dive into how to know when you’re ready to start sharing that message.

 Highlights from this episode include:

  • When to start sharing your message (1:27)
  • How to find your message (2:42)
  • My creative process (5:57)
  • What to do if you have a message (7:08)
  • How to know when you have your message (13:47)

Remember, it doesn’t matter if you already have your message or if you’re still working on it… as soon as God called you to this, you became a speaker. Now, after you’ve done your homework, spent some time with Jesus, and have your message, I want you to send me a DM to let me know. I’m excited to hear about it!

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.
