    [Ep#381] A story of the miraculous moves of God

    Welcome to the first episode of our BEtheDifference Series where we speak to people who are making a difference in the world with their message and their mission.  
    So, what happens when you surrender yourself fully to the Lord to take on one of His assignments? A difficult and potentially dangerous assignment, where you had no idea how you would even fund the project? 
    Miracles happen. And, lots of them.  
    From money to fund projects (where there was previously, none), through to plane tickets (that were previously sold out and impossible to get) and many other things that occurred when Diana Abruzzi made a promise to the Lord. 
    Diana Abruzzi is the Chairman and Founder of the International Women's Federation of Commerce and Industry (IWFCI) - the first Chamber of Commerce for women in the world at the time of its inaugural meeting in 1992 in Melbourne Australia.  
    Diana is a pioneer and leader in the cause of free enterprise and economic development. From championing the advancement of women in business around the world to giving a stronger voice for Australia at international forums on entrepreneurial economic initiatives to business and personal development. 
    Let’s listen in as Diana shares her story.

    2. Assuming people would listen and want to hire us

    2. Assuming people would listen and want to hire us

    Hi this is Annemarie and welcome to another #ListenerIntoLead tip. 
    This is tip #2, which are the mistakes I made and wish I had avoided 13 years ago when I started my very first podcast.  
    As businesses we know it can take multiple touchpoints for people to get to 'know, like, and trust' you. 
    And, there’s a difference between your audience building 'know, like and trust' with you as a podcast host versus listening to you and building ‘know, like, and trust’ through the lens of ‘do I want to work with this person?’ 
    In fact, I would say that a majority of your audience is not really looking to buy, but rather to learn, to be inspired, and/or to find and answer to a solution. They’re not really in buying mode. 
    But there are some subtle things you can do... 
    I share more in today’s tip.

    1. Is there a difference between podcasting and podcasting as a business? 

    1. Is there a difference between podcasting and podcasting as a business? 

    Hi, this is Annemarie, and welcome to another #ListenerIntoLead tip. This is tip #1. 
    A question I was asked once was "Is there a difference between podcasting and podcasting as a business?" My answer was, yes, absolutely there is a big difference. 
    It’s easy to start a podcast. We have incredible tools and technologies at our fingertips making it very easy to press record, start speaking or interviewing a guest, then uploading to a podcast host. Congratulations – you are a podcaster. 
    However, starting a podcast as a business, to build your visibility and reach and build an audience of your ideal clients, while building your reputation as a trusted authority, so you become THE choice vs just a choice while building your revenue as you begin to nurture listeners into leads, inquiries and ultimately paying customers – well that’s another matter altogether. It takes the right strategy and the right steps to get everything in place. 
    Just like it’s relatively simple to start a coaching business. However, starting a coaching business that’s profitable and scalable, well that’s another matter altogether, It takes the right strategy, the right steps, and the right systems, to ensure you are able to grow your business the right way. 
    And, it’s the same when it comes to podcasting as a business. 
    So, is there a difference between podcasting and podcasting as a business? Yes, there is!  
    Which is what this ListenerIntoLead series is all about.
    In the next few tips, I’m going to share the mistakes my cohost and I made and what I know to do differently so you can start to generate results from your very first episode. 
    I’ll see you in the next #ListenerIntoLead tip.

    [Ep#379] The Three Simple Secrets to Looking Great Every Day and on Zoom

    [Ep#379] The Three Simple Secrets to Looking Great Every Day and on Zoom

    My guest today says: “Fashion is a LOOK, not a size, age, name brand, or price tag. It’s who you’re being in what you are wearing - approachable, confident, attractive, and feeling beautiful, as you were magnificently created to be!” 
    Joining me today's show is Patsy Sanders. 
    As Master Hairstylist & Image Coach, Patsy elevates her clients’ looks from head to toe and from the inside out. She inspires them to embrace their essence through their own transformations. She confidently walks through life graciously accepting compliments no matter what she is wearing. 
    Patsy is on a mission to help other women discover the joy of living in harmony with their true authenticity by finding their own unique style through the element typing system! 
    On today’s show Patsy is going to share: 

    Three simple secrets to look great on every day, on Zoom and when speaking. 

    What you wear can either make you money or cost you money. 

    You may be hiding in plain sight because of how you dress.

    30. People will talk about you anyway – wouldn't you like to influence what they say?

    30. People will talk about you anyway – wouldn't you like to influence what they say?

    Hey, it’s Annemarie - welcome to another 30DaystoDistinction tip where I’ll be sharing 30 tips over the next 30 days as part of our 30DaysToDistinction Challenge to help you become distinguishable, uncopyable and irresistible, so you are THE choice vs just A choice for your ideal client and can continue to bring real change in your sphere of influence with your message and expertise. 
    This is Tip #30 – wow, we made it!!! 
    If I was to ask you to define Personal Branding – or your Personal Brand – how would you respond?
    If you said your Personal Brand is your reputation – you'd be correct. 
    Personal Branding – or your Personal Brand is not a fad, it’s not a buzzword that some marketers have begun throwing around as the flavor of the day. 
    In fact, in my former business – a Career Consultancy we were talking about the importance of Personal Branding back in the 2000s. So, it’s NOT a fad at all! 
    Your Personal Brand is your reputation. It’s what people think about you when your name is mentioned. It’s what people say about you when asked to share their experiences. 
    And, while you can’t control what people think or say about you, you CAN influence it. 
    By your actions, your interactions, your conversations, - everything can impact your reputation, your Personal Brand.  
    Positively. Or negatively. 
    If you do a Personal Brand audit today – would people think and say the exact things you’d want them to say?  
    Or are you leaving it to chance? 
    If you asked 5 people (who knew you well) to describe you in 5 words – would the 5 words they use to describe you be the same? 
    And, more importantly, are they the 5 words you would want them to use to describe you?  
    YOUR NEXT STEP:  
    Are you a coach or consultant who is struggling to stand out online? Do you feel unnoticed, unheard, invisible?  
    Access my free Masterclass, on how to become Distinguishable, Uncopyable and Irresistible to your ideal client – even if you’re in a crowded marketplace.

A great podcast from an excellent interviewer

I enjoy listening to "The Christian Entrepreneurs Podcast" as I am a Christian writer. Being a writer these days involves building a platform and potentially becoming an entrepreneur and small business owner. I appreciate the guests, their Godly wisdom and their passion for what they do. Well done Anne Marie Cross!
