How to Build Your Confidence in Five Minutes a Day

Some of us seem to be born confident. Others have spent a lifetime working at it. The truth is, there are times each of us has felt rattled, underprepared or awkward. Though that feeling of not fitting in may be the very catalyst that has made us into who we are, it would be nice to be able to summon up confidence at will, whether to walk into a room and own it or to get on stage and speak in front of hundreds.

The good news is that you can develop confidence…

Former music teacher now on a mission to empower everyday extraordinary individuals, especially young people, to compare less and celebrate more.

According to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, most young people today recognize the importance of their mental health but believe they lack access to resources needed to support them. Citing a survey by Benenson Strategy Group of over 2000 U.S. youth ages 13 to 24, researchers found that only 4 out of 10 young people rate their own mental health highly. Over 50% feel they do not have access to resources to deal with bullying and harassment, and nearly half said they would not know where to turn if they felt suicidal or had thoughts of self-harming.

Fool Or Foe: Owning Failure to Create Success

In the summer of 2009, I moved to the Arctic, by choice. I was on a mission for a fresh start. What I discovered was a shocking truth that would forever change the way I approached life and business.

Arriving in a new environment can be exhilarating - just like starting a new project or even a new relationship. For us entrepreneurs, the risk and challenge involved with starting over is addictive. I was up for the challenge, and my first days were filled with long, sunny days and an UNstoppable spirit.

The Real (UNapologetic) Reasons You’re Not Getting Booked To Speak

The Real (UNapologetic) Reasons You’re Not Getting Booked To Speak

They are the Holy Grail for Speakers (present and future).

Speaking gigs - engagements, and opportunities to speak on stages.

They are an obsession for many and a way to  - and the number of them speakers can book have become EVERYTHING.

They've become the driver and the measure by which speakers assess themselves and each other, and it's a shame and wholly misguided.

I’ve been on a mission to reveal the unapologetic truth about the speaking industry to up and coming speakers so that they can better position and prepare themselves for success.

Lessons From Becoming an International Best-Selling Author: The Power of Gratitude

Lessons From Becoming an International Best-Selling Author: The Power of Gratitude

In August of 2018, I declared that my newly released book Being UNapologetic would hit #1 in 7 countries.

Australia was the first #1. Then Canada, then the USA.  

While every detail was planned out, from launch graphics to having people ready in multiple countries, what I didn’t plan for was how the book would ultimately claim the top spot around the world.

It wasn’t the launch strategy or people who were sharing about the book directly – at least not exactly.

It was gratitude.

Thinking Bigger: 3 Principles to Create Bigger Results

A new year inspires us to think big!

As entrepreneurs, especially, we set audacious goals and declare new visions for business, life, and beyond!

It’s been my life’s work to think bigger. From composer to educator, coach, and founder, I’ve observed that thinking bigger creates more connection, community, and collaboration, and, quite simply, more results! People who deliver vision (big ideas worth spreading) have shown over and over, throughout history, that they can lead movements and move people into inspired action!

Money Matters: 5 Quotes And Questions To Make Money Matter More

On June 4th, 2011 I won the lottery. The lightning lottery.

Like a good neighbor, State Farm was there and handed me a check as I stood on the road, in front of what used to be my home, after the twenty-seven firefighters, curious reporters and onlookers left the scene.

What happened next, forever changed the way I approach life and money.

The Love Dare: Leveraging Love For Success In Business And Life

What’s LOVE got to do with it? Entrepreneurship, that is..

While I’ve been an entrepreneur and thought leader my entire life, my immigration to America in 2015 forced me to start over. I had to become a student in every way to start a new life and a new iteration of my business.

Let’s play the age-old game of ‘Truth or Dare’ to illustrate the discovery that has radically transformed my approach to (and success in) entrepreneurship and life, and the two questions that changed everything!

It’s the question that keeps getting asked…

It’s the holy grail for Speakers (present and future) — getting more speaking gigs.

Here’s the big, bold statement that I am unequivocally UNAPOLOGETIC about:

in most cases getting MORE speaking gigs is NOT where you should be focusing your attention… doing so is actually HURTING your speaking career and your bottom line - forever.

Lisa Sasevich, has assumed the throne as The Queen of Sales Conversion not by accident! She is a master (Queen). 

You see, if you want to make a sale or be known as a stand-out speaker and authority, the first moments of your presentation matter just as much as (more than) your close! In fact, what you do BEFORE you ever take the stage matters the most!

The secret is a philosophy that I’ve used for many years to create success in education, fitness, and performance. I have adapted the principles with your business and personal success in mind so you can begin to reverse engineer your signature talks and workshops to achieve the same success Lisa, I and other 'knowers of the truth' have enjoyed.

Re: Your Content: Is It REALLY King?

You have a gift; something to offer the world. You know you can provide massive value through your message and the way you present your content, while you build your business and authority in your niche, and create the life you want.

It’s simple, right? All you have to do is get your stuff out there. There is certainly no shortage of platforms and delivery methods in the online world, so, you invest in yourself and your business, create an offer, and you share your message far and wide and shout it from proverbial (digital) mountaintops.

As a speaker, you know that your unique approach to the content you present makes you unique - in theory, a highly bookable commodity for any conference organizer or event planner.

And then you realize (and if you haven’t yet, let me tell you. BOLD statement alert):

Content is no longer king.

Speak to Convert: Transform Audiences Into Raving Fans

It’s no secret that emotion plays a major role in how people make decisions. It's the reason why 'story' has become such a hot topic for speakers and a well known fact when it comes to sales conversion. (Admit it, you’ve been #funneled. I know I have.)

To create an environment where you elicit specific emotions isn't always the easiest proposition. The ideal scenario is for you to create and deliver an experience that results in your audience saying 'WOW'. 

Here's the reality when it comes to creating WOW-experiences:

'Wow' is not your content.

(No offense…I will always be Simon Cowell honest with you.)

Wow is a feeling.

The real secret lies in how to sustain the EMOTION created from your initial presentation!

Knowledge and content engages us at the lowest level of the cognitive domain (the thinking part of your brain).

Receiving knowledge ranks at the lowest level of the affective domain (the emotional/feeling part of your brain).

Simply put, if you are going to speak or present a workshop of any kind, sharing your knowledge of how to [fill in the blank awesome way I can level-up your income and life] may get you initial sales and new followers based on your content, however, it will fall short on developing a dedicated following of fans who want more of what you have to share. 

And, isn’t that point? 

Your audience - every single one of them - is your lifeline and your equity.
