God has called you to this, and He's equipping you for this. He needs you healthy, and a part of that is making sure you are well-rested and well-grounded in the Word of God.” – Mary R Snyder.

Today I will be sharing advice on how to set boundaries for yourself and come up with a system or ritual that takes care of you throughout your speaking career. 

Highlights from today include:

  • Setting aside time to be alone (2:06)
  • Pampering yourself while at an event (4:49)
  • Taking time for yourself after an event (5:56)
  • Setting up the systems that are going to take care of you (8:34)
  • Connecting with your event planner to better serve your audience (10:32)
  • Remembering your boundaries and rituals to take care of yourself (12:14)

I hope going forward, you can set aside time for yourself to not only relax but also spend an extra moment with God during an event. 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 what your routine is after an event! If you aren't on Facebook, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share it with me.
