How to Find Your Why [Coaches Corner]

With The Speaker Lab Coaches

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit down with some of our coaches and take a deep dive into some of the hottest topics for speakers? Wonder no more! Our Coaches Corner series gives you actionable advice and practical insights from our coaches that you can use right now to grow your speaking business.

This week, Maryalice Goldsmith and Nanette Hitchcock discuss why your why matters and how finding that why is the key to your speaking success.

Your message matters and it needs to be defined with clarity – but how?! Maryalice and Nanette explain the purposeful path to finding your “why” and give you practical steps you can take to get started.

Have you found yourself stuck in the weeds and overthinking the pieces of your message? That’s okay! You can’t lose your “why” because with it, you’ll lose what drives the passion behind the problem you’re solving for your audience. It takes hard work, but this episode will give you some starting points to get you going in the right direction.

Here’s what you’ll learn from this episode:

  • How to build your foundation by stepping into the gaps
  • Building authenticity into your message
  • Why clarity matters
  • Saying “yes” to things that feed the “why”
  • Discovering your vision and destination
  • And much more!

Tweetable: The why drives excellence.
