    Ep 216 Your Permission Slip

    Ep 216 Your Permission Slip

    Today's episode is a mini farewell episode. I'm taking the summer off from the podcast! I know I've done this before, and now I'm doing it again. It's also a permission slip for you to say no to more things so you can take more time for yourself and the things you want to be doing. Where can you pause, quit, or otherwise say NO THANKS and bow out? Hopefully today's episode will give you the support and inspiration you need to join me on the bench this summer. See you in September!

    What next? You're stuck in a loop of negative thinking and you can't get out. On today's episode, I share three ways to manage your vulnerability hangover so it doesn't own you!

    Ep 213 The Art of Keeping It Simple

    Ep 213 The Art of Keeping It Simple

    You've probably heard "less is more." This statement couldn't be more true when it comes to public speaking and crafting a powerful talk. On today's episode, I break down the three ways to keep your speeches simple and effective.

    They are:


    If I could only tell someone three things, what would they be? 
    When storytelling, use vivid details, but don’t get lost in unnecessary details. Always ask: Is this relevant? If it’s not, get rid of it.
    Less is more! Make simple, clear points and reinforce them throughout your speech. 

    Listen in as I share how to go about using this advice on today's episode of Claim the Stage!
