REPLAY - Leveraging Speaking to Scale Your Business with Jessica Rasdall
Show Notes

As business owners, CEOs and the visionaries of our companies, it’s important for us to identify our own growth roles as we make hires and build our teams. Often, for many of us this means we’re able to step into a more lucrative and visible role as the face of our company. 

In doing so, speaking is one of the number one ways to accelerate our company’s growth, widen the net we cast for our visibility, and radiate the impact our business has on the world.

Jessica shares her deep and powerful message of how she overcome intense and turbulent personal challenges and she answers all the questions I could ever ask about how to discover our own message and share it with the world.

“When we start to shift our focus on the difference we’re making and less on how it’s being received, it becomes so much easier.”

“The only story that matters is the one your audience needs to hear. If we don’t start with the question of ‘what do they need from me,’ you’re going to tell the wrong story.”

“Most of the frustration from speaking is not because your presentation isn’t great. It’s because you’re not leveraging it the way your business needs you to leverage it.”

“You feel like you’re talking to everybody, but from the stage you only need to talk to one person. When you can focus on the one person you’re meant to impact, it’s so much more impactful.”

“If you’ve ever sat in the audience and thought, ‘I’m meant to be up there,’ you probably should!”
