GIVE ME A MICROPHONE AND A STAGE ANY DAY.
I realized I was a speaker by accident. I was attending a sales conference for work, and the scheduled speaker for one of our sessions suddenly fell ill. In what I can only imagine was a moment of delirious panic, somebody asked me to step in. I think they’d heard me tell a joke once and figured I could hold people’s attention. (Admittedly, I do deliver jokes quite well.)
So, I stepped in and winged it. I couldn’t tell you what I said, though I remember it was honest and passionate. And I’m pretty sure it was funny because, well, I think I’m kind of funny. That’s how I realized those components — honesty, passion, and humor — make for the most engaging, meaningful, memorable talks.
Since then, I have spoken to audiences ranging from 20 to 10,000 people.
I’m happy to speak on just about anything, but here are four areas I’m particularly passionate about:
THRIVING THROUGH CANCER: I not only survived Stage 3 breast cancer, I learned to find joy in it. My message recognizes the dark depths that treatment takes us to, but focuses on the importance of faith, humor, and joy in getting through it.
JOY AND FAITH: I love to share my personal story behind Unstoppable Joy. My journey has been anything but easy; but through it, I have discovered the life-changing power of leaning on God and purposefully embracing joy.
MOTIVATING WOMEN: Women are capable of such extraordinary lives, and yet too many settle for mediocrity because they don’t tap into their potential. My message of empowerment has been honed by working with hundreds of women, helping them to identify their own ideas of success and to make the life changes needed to achieve it.
DIRECT SALES ARENA: Despite initially signing up as a favor to my daughter, I became a top ten producer in a million-dollar direct sales company — and I took my team from $380K to over $1 million in twelve months. Let me share my powerful and motivating story about how anybody if they genuinely want it, can be enormously successful in direct sales.
