How do you know if your message is ready for the spotlight? That depends on what you mean by “spotlight”. Is it getting a lot of attention or publicity? Or taking the big stage for the first time? My definition of the word is stepping onto any stage at any time. To ensure you’re prepared for the spotlight, no matter how big or small, let's talk about knowing if your message is ready.
In this episode, I dive into the five most essential tools you need in your speaker toolkit before you hit the stage.
Highlights from this episode include:
- The power of starting small (3:17)
- The importance of a signature message (6:24)
- Building relationships (7:41)
- Relationships versus connections (10:57)
- Developing your skills (11:44)
Over the last few episodes, we’ve talked a lot about starting small and preparing for the big stage. Next time, we’ll talk about the stage you’re on now, the stage you’ll be on in the future, and how to prepare for it. But before we get there, I want you to really think about these five questions we talked about in this episode. I'll post these in the Facebook group, so head on over there and tell me what you think. Are you ready?
