Do you feel like you have too much content in your presentations? Too many good things you can share with your audiences and you’re not sure how to select what to include?

Most of us feel this way - and it’s our job as speakers to identify the most essential elements and convey them in a way the audience can understand and apply.

One way to do this is to thread a story throughout your talk, where the people (could be you, a client, or someone else) in the story, the situation they’re in, the challenges they face, and how they overcome them becomes the lessons the audience learns.

In this on-air coaching call, my guest Amber Hawley and I do exactly this as we go through her signature talk.

We identify a client story Amber can use and then play with the timeline to keep it interesting.

Amber recently graduated from our Master Your Speaking program.

Our next Master Your Speaking program starts in mid-January and enrollment is open right now.

You get to work one-on-one with us to create your signature talk PLUS you get 3 months of group coaching to learn how to position, promote, and market yourself to get better speaking engagements, including paid ones, and even your dream one.

This is a secret bonus episode - my podcast editor doesn’t know about it, neither does my assistant (shhh!).

I had originally planned to do a “year in review” episode, but as early December became mid-December and the holidays were upon us, I got busy and decided to skip it.

But, I’ve found myself enjoying listening to other podcasters talk about their year and what worked for them. 

So, here’s my review of what worked this past year, what didn’t, and what’s coming in 2020.

I cover the business, the podcast, visibility, social media, sales approaches, and personal experiences.

At the end, I sum everything up into 3 big lessons, including my biggest lesson, which was a surprise for me.

Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2020!

Remember the VH1 series from the late 1990s called “Where are they now?” 

The show would look back at artists, bands, and actors (mostly from the 1980s) and see what happened to them.

It was captivating television because we’re curious to see what happens to people, especially famous people, after they’ve had their big success.

My guests today, Teresa McCloy and Anne Torrez, aren’t 80s pop stars and they're not famous (yet!), but they have been on this podcast previously in on-air coaching calls.

Both Teresa and Anne also recently graduated from our Master Your Speaking online coaching program.

I figured it would be a great opportunity to catch up with them to see what they’ve been doing since we last heard from them and what goals they have for the new year.

Do you have doing more speaking - and making revenue from it - as one of your goals for 2020?

Our next Master Your Speaking program starts in mid-January and enrollment is open right now.

It’s a fantastic way to reach new audiences, build relationships with podcast hosts, and hone your message.

Why are her pitches so effective? That’s what we talk about, along with how to be a great guest.

You’ll learn:

  • The benefits of being a guest on podcasts
  • How to find relevant shows
  • How to be a great guest
  • Strategies for lead generation when you’re a guest
  • Do’s and Don'ts of pitching - this also applies to pitching for speaking engagements

Before you ask yourself *what* goals you want to achieve as a speaker, ask yourself *who* do you want to *be* as a speaker and then what do you need to do to become that?

Taking on that identity is what will make the goals real to you.

This has been so helpful to me because traditional goal setting has never worked that well.

I’d make a goal, like guesting on 2 podcasts a month or doing 1 speaking engagement a month.

But, I never felt truly motivated to keep pursuing them. I’d give a bit of an effort and then it would fizzle out.

Until I read a book earlier this year about a different way of setting and achieving goals: WHO you want to be comes first. Then, the goals and habits follow.

In this episode, you’ll learn a different way of setting goals:

  • First, we go through specific questions to reflect on the speaking and visibility you did this year (Diane shares hers)
  • Visualizing the big picture of what you want with a journaling exercise
  • Stepping back and thinking about WHO you want to become as a speaker
  • Identifying what you’ll need to do to make that happen, using a handy acronym S.E.A.M. we came up with
