You're a thinker of big thoughts, but sometimes organizing them can be just a mess.

I'm a webinar junkie - I love attending them and learning. What makes me hang up the phone in a New York minute is when I hear that trite formula. 

1. Start with witty banter about your day
2. “You know you’re in the right place if” diatribe
3. Turning point story time – give me your rags to riches tale
4. Content – finally – what I came here for!!
5. The offer
6. Final piece of content (or a contest) that keeps your listeners hanging on to the end

This formula is undermining your persuasiveness and killing your business. Find out why...

Suggestions for to-do lists that are out of control?

Start working on the things that HAVE to get done... like now.  Always surprising to me that when I don't get to everything (and my list grows and grows) some things just disappear.  Ultimately, they didn't matter as much as I thought.  Focusing on the top stuff helped me to realign my priorities.

No one has ever been startled by a statistic. Rarely, anyone has made a purchase because of a plethora of compelling numbers. People buy on emotion.  We buy when we feel it’s the right decision.

That's why you need to tell a great story!

As 2013 closes, It’s always fun to create this list to see which blog posts hit a chord with you. 

Without further ado – Read the top 7 posts from 2013!

My book didn't really feel real until I saw the cover. Speak Up for Your Business drops in late April.

It's time to start changing the world and the way you speak about your business.

Don’t you hate it when people don’t do what you want them to do?

Your kids don’t go to sleep when you want them to.

Your phone doesn’t ring at the exact moment you expect it to when you’re awaiting big news.

Your cat refuses to move off your lap so you can write this very blog post. (Yikes, I think I’m projecting but my big fluffy marshmallow cat won’t get off my computer!)

Most of all don’t you hate it as a speaker when your audience doesn’t do what you want them to do?

Find out the exact steps to take to move your audience to action.

Introduction
I help super smart people (like you) get their ideas out their heads and communicated to the people who need to hear them most. 

I love ideas. I geek out over organizing them. Listening to them. Making them even better than you ever thought they could be. Strategizing the best way to make your listeners go absolutely gaga over what you have to say.
