How to Have an Audacious Mindset

With Anne Marie Anderson

When we say our programs get you results, Anne Marie Anderson is what we mean. After decades of experience in sports broadcasting, Anne Marie realized that the speaking gigs she landed here and there could become a career. She joined the Speaker Lab Virtual VIP program with Erick Rheam in the fall and just three months later, her speaking business is booming! She shares her success story on today’s podcast with TSL director of student success Maryalice Goldsmith. If you struggle knowing when and how to make your next best professional move, Anne Marie’s story will fill you with the confidence you need.

In this episode, Maryalice and Anne Marie dig deep into what it takes to turn your speaking business from “one of the things you do” into “what you do”. From locker room pep talks to celebrity sideline interviews, Anne Marie’s career has taught her a lot about how to take opportunity by the horns. For her, The Speaker Lab was the obvious choice to maximize her opportunities. Giving us a taste of her signature keynote, she delves into how she confronted the obstacles that held her back and how you can do the same!

You’ll also hear all about:

  • The tragedy that taught Anne Marie you can’t wait on chasing your dreams.
  • Her mental hack that turns “no” into “not yet”.
  • Questions to ask yourself if your outreach is failing to get you speaking gigs.
  • How The Speaker Lab can help you gather data and turn it into strategy.
  • How the accountability of the TSL cohort empowered her to outstrip her speaking goals in less than 3 months.
  • When to start saying “I’m a professional speaker” (hint: the answer is NOW)!
  • And so much more!
