I would walk 1000 miles… but would you lip synch to help rock your talk?

I have a hilarious video for you below that includes the song “I would walk 1,000 miles)… but first.

I want to share with you one of the most important things I learned from the man who taught me how to “speak and sell”.

He said to me, “Kristin, when you can be the person you are with your best friends and family, when you’re standing in front the room…. it will transform your talks.”

hello 198x300 I would walk 1000 miles... but would you lip synch to help rock your talk?

He was right.

And so I decided to invite “Kristin” to come out from behind the curtain.

I stopped silencing the thing I “wanted” to say. The zinger. The goofy punch line waiting to be thrown. Or the hard truth that was the elephant in the room.

To be honest, it felt pretty risky…and scary. But here’s what happened.

Suddenly my talks were vanilla anymore. They were still informative and full of great content… but they also became engaging. Funny. And unexpected.

People were laughing, smiling, and fully engaged. It was WORTH it.

This is the trick that’s no trick at all. Its just pure, 100% unabashedly YOU.

Are you willing to be YOU in your talks, webinars, and strategy sessions?
The REAL YOU.

It might even be a person more powerful than you allow your friends and family to see.

It might be more wild than you let on. (Like the silly video of Mellissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman below)

It might that you’re more serious and feisty.

What is critical… is that you learn how to let go, and be that person in your business and in your presentations.

This video reminds me of me. Its like a peak behind the curtain of what some of us are like, when we’re being ourselves… And its just plain funny so enjoy!

And then consider joining me (and LOTS of amazing leaders, experts, coaches, and authors) at The Rise Live Event.

Check it out and see if its for you… (click here to check out The Rise in a new window) and be sure to sign up for the rockin Lip Synch Contest after you reserve your seat. It just might change your presentations forever. icon smile I would walk 1000 miles... but would you lip synch to help rock your talk?

PodcastEpisodeSteve 012 300x300 RYBL017: How to Capture More Clients with Steve Napolitan

The real struggle for all speakers, writers, coaches and business owners is how to capture the attention of more potential clients and convert them to loyal fans. My interview with Steve Napoliatan is all about simple, kick-ass steps that can turn the tide and have people clamoring to work with you.

Amazingly, Steve did not even think of marketing as a potential career path originally! Steve just knew that he did not want to be like his father, constantly working, tied down to a job. He attended film school, started a production company and by the age of 23 was making 6 figures a year! Within 8 years, from his incorporation of marketing into his production company, he was being recognized as an expert in his field and winning multiple marketing awards. Today, he is working with multiple billion dollar companies, a few of which I think you may have heard of, including Apple, Charles Schwab and Intel, to name a few.

This week is all about creating the shift in yourself, in your mindset, to have clients banging down your door to work with you! Listen in to learn how Steve became a video production to marketing guru and and started crushing it by making millions for his clients and loving what he does.
