Episode 33: Finding Your Stage with Heather Sager

podcast May 13, 2020

Heather Sager, joins me on the podcast to help you understand why we all need to embrace stages and speaking in our businesses.

I know some of you don’t identify yourself as a “speaker” and you certainly don’t see yourself on a stage. But, Heather points out clearly in this episode that we are all speakers, and we are all speaking on stages in both business and life.

Before I lose you, it’s important to note that today’s “stage” isn’t just a physical stage you walk onto in front of hundreds or thousands of people. Today’s stages range from podcasts to live videos to Instagram stories to webinars to talking behind the counter of your brick and mortar business.

The bottom line, if you’re in business you need a stage.

One of the biggest benefits to using stages (again...not just a physical stage but podcasting, live video, and networking events) is connecting with new people. You have a message and naturally, you want to gain new followers. 

Once you clarify your message and embrace the stage, you'll find opportunities to be a guest on other people's stages, thus growing your reach...organically. 

You MUST listen to this episode because of how Heather explains this concept. She uses the analogy that we are all in charge of our Kingdoms and should be using stages to go find other new people to join our Kingdom. 

Embracing that you are in fact a speaker and you belong on a stage will equip you with a new approach to how you publish content. 

After listening to this episode with Heather Sager you will:

  • Get a better understanding of how to embrace the speaker already inside of you.
  • How to find your stage outside of the physical stages in the auditorium.
  • How to use stages to grow your audience.
  • How to clarify and refine your message.
