When you habitually change your approach, your plan, your agenda, your message, you’re always between the action. Never in it and never getting far.
When you sprinkle your money around, lose portions, and cut corners on what it takes to make a dream, you prove you’re unwilling to invest in your own expansion.
I’m packing thirty years of contacts, connections, and experience developing speakers from newcomer to sought-after pro in my career, so I’ve observed what makes or breaks them.
It all comes down to commitment.
Which begs the question – to whom or what are you devoted?
I’ve worked my entire life. At twenty-five, I peered up the corporate ladder and confirmed I didn’t want that climb. My oldest brother had awakened the entrepreneur in me long before that, so when I encountered a video by Les Brown preaching that you couldn’t coast through life, but instead had to take responsibility for it…
He echoed back to me something I already knew while introducing me to something I didn’t – that professional speaking was an industry.
And I belonged in it.
Over the years, I’ve devoted myself to my clients’ successes.
When my brother died, I devoted myself to acting on my goals, not just planning for them.
When I got married, I devoted myself to our new family, my three grandkids and counting.
Daily, I devote myself to clarifying my client’s messages. Shoring up their confidence. Strengthening their income flow. Hushing the chatter around them. Teaching them to focus and do the same.
Empowering them to build, not just a business, but the business of their dreams.
