If you’ve ever done any speaking or taken a course on using speaking to market your business, do you remember how excited you were? Many of my clients have taken classes in creating and using a Signature Speech(TM) to share their messages with the world.
Many of us, myself included, often learn a skill and jump in with both feet at the beginning. But then life and work momentum kicks back in and pulls you in the usual other directions and suddenly, you have less time than you’d hoped for that thing you were so excited about.
It’s ok. It happens. And here’s what you can do about it.
If you need to refresh on your Signature Speech(TM) or any speaking, here are 3 tips to get you moving again:
- Recommit. You know speaking is powerful and you’re ready to make that happen and get on more stages. Recommitting to speaking means taking specific actions like setting some time aside to reach out to meeting planners, update your materials, start telling people you’re a speaker, and plan your marketing after your speech.
- Practice. If it’s been a while since you’ve done your speech, pull it out and practice it a few times beginning to end. Make any necessary changes based on new services you offer or current events in your industry.
- Start Fresh. You may be in a different situation than you were when you originally took my Signature Speech(TM) training or discovered speaking. Or you might have something totally new or unique you’ve come up with in your business that people LOVE that has nothing to do with your old speech. Maybe it’s time to write a new one. If it is, pull out your Signature Speech(TM) course content and put together a new speech.
If you’re thinking of refreshing your speech, this week I’m doing something I’ve never done: holding an intimate event where I’ll be writing speeches live, on the spot, for the attendees. You may not be able to get there or by the time you read this post, that event could be long over, but whatever you do, if you know for a fact that speaking is a powerful way to spread your mission and your message, find a way to get it rolling for you. Of course I’d love to help you. But in the meantime, I’d love to hear in the comments below about your powerful message and how you help people.
