When your fear is greater than your desire

When your fear is greater than your desire

My last 90 days have been pretty epic. I’ve closed some super sexy speaking engagements. I hosted my third annual The Spotlight MasterTreat. I’m in the homestretch of my most profitable program launch to date. I’ve traveled a lot—to 5 different cities. I’ve retreated and masterminded with some amazing entrepreneurs on both coasts of the country. Made some new business …

Can your coach give you the speaking career (and biz) you crave?

Alexia Public Speaking, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

What got you to where you are—it won’t get you to where you want to be. I shared these words with my women at The Spotlight MasterTreat a few weeks ago. Aren’t they an inspired looking bunch?!   The mindset, habits, skills and relationships that get you to your first level of success (whether you define that by number of …

What It Means to “Do You” as a Speaker

Alexia Public Speaking Leave a Comment

Just do you. You’ve likely heard the phrase before. It might have made you laugh. Or roll your eyes. Or both! As a speaking coach, much of my work is showing entrepreneurs and visionary leaders how to be themselves when they speak. And lately, just do you has come out of my mouth. A lot. For I see so many …

How to align with spirit to call in speaking opportunities beyond your wildest dreams

One of my clients, “Joyce”, had been in a 60-day email exchange with a Fortune 500 company. After choosing not to follow-up anymore, the company emailed confirming a date for her presentation and agreed to her full speaker fee. Another client, “Alice”, with zero corporate consulting experience, received a call for a full-day consulting opportunity. In less than a week …

Let your people have their breakthroughs

One of my favorite lines in my Step into Your Moxie keynote is, “We teach what we have to learn. And remember.” I believe that most transformational speakers and entrepreneurs have been called to their work, and are sharing a message, that intimately relates to a lesson they have had to learn (sometimes over and over again). And this is …

F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. “What did you say, sweetie?” I asked, hoping I’d heard my daughter incorrectly.   And then she said it again. And again. And…again. After I put my eyes back into my sockets, unclenched my jaw and remembered how to breathe, my immediate next thought was, I’m a horrible mother. I knew my daughter had learned …

speaker fees

My least favorite question as a speaker – and how I respond to it

Alexia Coaching, Money, Public Speaking 1 Comment

What’s your speaker fee? When I’m asked that question, truth be told, I usually feel like I’m going to vomit a bit in my own mouth. And the reason has nothing to do (finally!) with my sense of my monetary value or perceived worthiness regarding my right to earn well and do great work. (However, it did, for a long …

I will NOT apologize for this (and I hope you won’t either)

I have spent a lot of time crying over the last couple of weeks. Immediately after the opening weekend of my Influencer Academy women’s leadership program, my husband and I tragically and unexpectedly lost someone close to us. And then, the next day, I embarked on my five-day storytelling challenge for speakers. During the challenge, I witnessed women from four …

The source of my ninjalike productivity (plus free offer to increase yours)

Alexia Career Advice, Coaching, Personal Development Leave a Comment

If a ninja is defined as someone who “excels in a particular skill or activity,” I feel very comfortable proclaiming myself not only a ninja speaking coach but also a ninja when it comes to my entrepreneurial productivity. For example, in September the week before leading a 3-day retreat, I knocked out all of the emails comprising my Find Your …
