Episode Title – Present Like a Business Leader
Presenting in front of a crowd scares many business owners. Many believe they do not have the ability, stage/screen presence to hold an audience’s attention or anything of value to say.
Most are wrong on all counts.
Additionally, they miss the opportunities presenting creates. And these opportunities are substantial.
Because the opportunity to present one-to-many is marketing gold. The chance to deliver an unfiltered message to an audience is the birthplace of business leaders, thought leaders and anyone wanting to make a name for themselves and their business.
Mostly, it just takes a little practice, a few stories and some knowledge of presentation techniques.
This week’s show is devoted to this topic and inspiring the bravery that’s in you to come out and make the most of this under-utilized medium.
Oh, and presenting like a business leader is a very effective method of stamping your authority on your subject and that’s great for attracting referrals.
To pass on some valuable information that gives business owners the confidence to present.

Season 5 Show 9 – Follow-Up… Just Do It!
Following prospects up is considered by many to be trying-too-hard or worse, pestering people. So too few people do it and even fewer people do it well.
Worse… too many people see it as an opportunity to sell. Whoa there tiger! Rein it in!
The follow up is a necessary artform that enables the continued contact that can leads to the partnerships, collaborations, introductions or clients that can change your business. It’s definitely not an opportunity to sell.
So check out the podcast and learn the follow-up techniques and tricks that remove the feeling of, well… ickiness!

After all, giving anyone other than a giver is a waste of time.
