“When you step on that stage and open your mouth, the clock starts ticking. In the middle of the action, you want to grab them, take them right into that story.” – Mary R. Snyder.
 
Today, I am breaking down a clear-cut five-step plan to get you booked so you can focus on your God-given message instead of stressing over how to begin!
 
Highlights from today’s episode include:
 
  • A five-step plan to get you booked (2:53)
  • Step 1: Identifying who you’re called to serve (3:22)
  • Step 2: Crafting a laser-focused message (4:55)
  • Step 3: Discovering where your message fits in (6:58)
  • Number 4: Getting connected (7:51)

  • Bonus step (13:40)
 
I hope that this episode has resonated with you and inspired you to take the first step to get your message out into your community. And I have no doubt that your audience will have the same feeling of encouragement after hearing you speak and you step down from the platform.
