Preparation is the key to your success in giving powerful and impactful speeches.
Can you truly say that you put in the time to prepare when you’re asked to speak?
Here’s the problem when you don’t…
When you’re not prepared, it’s obvious to the audience when you’re on stage. It’s obvious when you’re rambling without a purpose or a message. It’s obvious when the power point slides accidentally lock and you freeze because they’re your “crutch”.
Let me introduce you to the 2010 version of Andy Neary.
I was running a small employee benefits department for a P&C agency and hated my job.
I had no control over my workday as I bounced from one “fire” to the next.
I was hanging around the wrong people.
All I wanted to do was quit…everything. It actually hurts to think about it as I write this.
There are 3 months left to go in the year and you might be feeling stuck.
You’re behind your goals and you’re just trying to figure out how to finish the year strong.
You’re also looking out at your competition thinking they’re leveraging some secret advantage that you don’t have access to. You just want one growth hack that will take your results to a level you’ve never experienced, but you’re looking in the wrong places.
Here’s the one question every health insurance broker in America needs to start answering correctly.
When it comes to doing what is right for your client, are you willing to put YOUR compensation at risk 100% of the time?
So you want to change the world, huh? Well, that’s great.
What’s your plan? How are you going to do it?
Do you even have a plan, or are you just saying it because it feels good and it’s what social media and society encourages you to do.
Why do you care so much?
When it comes to running your life, your business, why do you get so many opinions? (Hey, guilty as charged!!)
Are you preventing yourself from stepping into the person you know you’re supposed to be because you’re afraid what others might say? What others might think? Or, the fact that someone might not like what you’re doing?!?
2 wheels. Blue sky. Fresh air.
There are few hobbies as “relaxing” as cycling. It’s a blessing to live in Colorado and ride in some of the most beautiful terrain in the country. Riding in the foothills of the Rockies is a spiritual journey that teaches you one life lesson after another.
Today’s lesson? Ride into the wind first!
