Working on your success and making an impact can be done on your own but it costs more and takes longer. We are definitely stronger together.

Understand that in any business word of mouth marketing is still one of the key ways to build your reputation and revenue. Listening to what your ideal customer needs and wants will always put you in a position to succeed. It will also take authenticity! People can always spot a taker and a giver. In the end, givers will always receive more and come out ahead of the pack. In this episode, Kearn shares her experience as the butts in seats Queen!

Kearn dropped nuggets about what it means to show up with a brand that wants to succeed!
~ Show up looking like you are ready to succeed
~ Don’t just sit and wait for things to happen
~ Take your experience and flip it on its head (What can you use from each experience?)

Through key conversations, you are able to be seen and heard. Yes, that even includes turning on your camera during a zoom call. Make the most of every encounter and treat social media as a networking meetup.

Here are the five tips Kearn shared to help you get a yes for that next speaking opportunity.

Promoting, sharing in your community and other small gestures will prove that you are a commodity to the event and event host. Being invited is just part of the equation…you become an ambassador for the event.
