“I’ll NEVER be a SPEAKER”
Mark here with a story I’ve only shared once.
And even when I shared it with Shannon that one time, it was hard for me.
A few years ago – even after I quit my corporate job in branding and started my own conscious business (before I met Shannon) – I was spinning my wheels with my niche
and I was scared about speaking. I thought “I’m not ready yet…” “I need to find my niche and my brand first”
Yes, I was meant to speak on stages. Yes, I had a powerful message that I KNEW people needed to hear. But it wasn’t the message or my purpose that filled me with fear.
It was the “business” part.
I was filled with all kinds of thoughts every single time I got on stage. If I offer my program they’ll think I’m a slimy salesman. If I offer a strategy session – they’ll think I just want to sell on the call.
And worst of all – I thought that as soon as I made some kind of offer, that by being “salesy” it would ruin my message. And what would I offer? What is my package? What’s my REAL message?
So gig after gig I walked away with nothing by compliments. As inspiring as all those compliments were – they weren’t paying the bills.
And I needed to pay the bills.
So after one gig, I came home and said to myself, “I’ll never be a Speaker.”
Because without an income, I couldn’t have an IMPACT.
That was a number of years ago – and of course I kept on going and wouldn’t give up on my dream. The big breakthrough of course was following my spiritual path and getting a mentor. That’s what led me to Shannon and starting our business… and the rest is history!
I couldn’t believe it – we made $400,000 in 10 months… SPEAKING!
At Big Impact Live we show you how you could do exactly the same thing by speaking. For now, I want you to hold onto your dreams. Don’t give into the fears or frustrations of spinning your wheels.
Miracles manifested in my life because I stayed aligned and committed to my dream. And I want you to manifest your dreams as a speaker too my friend.
So leave your comment and inspire the Tribe:
“What inspires you to NEVER give into your FEARS?”
In your corner and by your side,
Mark & Shannon
