Show NotesSegment 1
Sam starts with a section from his book, “Everyday Awakening”. Today’s section is about feeling safe with yourself before you can feel safe with others. Sam tells a story about his experience with a client. While doing a ceremony with her, he noticed a change in her state and realized that she felt comfortable since she was in her own home. Sam encourages you to ask yourself whether or not you feel safe and observe why. What makes you feel safe?Segment 2
Sam introduces his guest Arvee Johnson, a master speaker and speaker trainer. Growing up Arvee was talkative but she did not plan for this career path. In college she studied Information Systems and got a job at Deloitte setting up financial accounting systems. Once she developed the skills, Arvee discovered she could use public speaking to move upward in her company. After reaching the top Arvee was not content because she was no longer a trailblazer. She began attending seminars where she met her mentor, who guided her on her path to becoming an entrepreneur.Segment 3
Sam asks about the trends she has seen before and after this pandemic. Arvee talks about the ways that audiences have changed throughout the year. Audiences wanted a presentation, not a boring lecture, but it did not feel authentic so audiences began demanding a conversational speaker. Now that the world has shifted people want what Arvee calls “raw authenticity”. Audiences want to know who you are today and connect to you. This authenticity may alienate some, but it has so much power and draws in the audience you are looking for. Speakers should not be afraid to share their core values, and with the right training thi authenticity is less scary. Arvee believes that TedTalks have had an impact on the length of talks.Segment 4
It took Arvee nine years to write her book “Speak Up, Get Clients”. She read a chapter about illuminating fear and it’s fatal expectations. Arvee shares that her biggest fear happened within the first ten minutes of her first attempt at public speaking. With proper training and enough rehearsal. You can find her book on Amazon.
