“Don’t get so caught up in the people you want to talk to that you miss the people that God has for you.” – Mary R. Snyder.
Today, I’ll talk about what happens when you step off the platform and 5 steps for introverts and extroverts to navigate this uncharted territory.
Highlights from today’s episode include:
  • The key components of a speaker’s life (1:31)
  • What to do after you step off the platform (2:42)
  • 1st – Be available (3:36)
  • 2nd – Listen intently (6:06)
  • 3rd – A caveat (7:12)
  • 4th – Know your limitations (9:16)
  • 5th – Be friends (10:40)
  • Do you follow me? (13:51)
  • Apps I mentioned (14:28)
  • Closing remarks (15:21)
The world is filled with lonely people looking for someone to understand them. When you share a message that speaks to someone’s heart, they believe you know them, you understand them – and you do! Because being a speaker is a high calling, I hope these key components of a speaker’s life help you feel prepared to connect with your audience after delivering your message.
