Revenue Accelerator with Pearl Cox

Season 2021, Ep. 617

In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Pearl Cox. She is a communications consultant, speaker, and coach who offer specialists across different fields by leveraging digital communication, speaking, coaching, and mentoring to support them in their current roles. She specifically supports director-level women in the corporate grind and shows them how to build a business using their transferable skills and adopt the attraction law. Today, she talks with us about how visibility and leveraging your current skill sets can multiply your current business without any extravagant and complicated strategies. 

A Speaker for Women

[3:21]

Someone reached out to Pearl asking for women speakers that excelled in a male-dominated area. This started her journey to speaking. The first time she spoke was at a school in the UK where she shared her story with girls. She hoped to give them pearls of wisdom and insights as to how they could grow.


Law of Attraction in Communication 

[9:34]

In the law of attraction, you want to manifest what you want. You have your idea, set your goals, and want to go where you want. That's affirmations and the law of attraction. If you look at it that way you do it without realizing it, you will understand the process behind it and do it without realizing it. With communication, you can then share with others and use your understanding to share your message with everyone.


Less Expectations 

[15:44]

There are these hidden doors that people kind of go through. But it is not something that you're allowed to talk about in the corporate space. You can't just be like sending an email and expect to have a positive outcome. You can't always lean in energetically positive expectations because people will roll their eyes at you. But you also must work with people in terms of standing in that faith and not dismissing their power.


Project Management Skills

[17:59]

Any parent that juggles with a budget gets children ready for school. This is like project management. It's understanding that and seeing how you can put that in. Project management is an essential skill in the workplace and you can learn so many things from that.


Pearls of Wisdom

[26:12]

Always believe in yourself. Go for the biggest dream possible. You're going to make it. Don't let anyone knock you down because you can achieve absolutely anything.

Revenue Accelerator with Alison Tedford

Season 2022, Ep. 726
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Alison Tedford, a business consultant and author specializing in inclusive communications. She did work in the public service around creating inclusion for indigenous people within the federal prison system. Today, Alison discusses inclusiveness and communications, their respective origins, and how they interact.Telling Someone’s Story[00:45]When you think about storytelling and the role of a storyteller, you have to recognize the historical relationships that your subjects have had with who tells their stories, how they're represented in media, how their narratives are framed, and what level of consent they've experienced when their stories are told. It's important to consider when you're telling stories about people who are either different from you or share your identity.Writing Isn’t Just Writing[03:54]It involves relating, mediating, translating, and interest-based negotiation. Sometimes, you have to be able to come back to a subject and say, I understand why these things are important to include. We need to figure out how to share that with an audience who might not have the same frame of reference and knowledge base.[04:50]Things can be factually accurate. But the aspects of a story that are emphasized and how things are positioned can make a difference in how people feel.Inclusion Value[08:19]When you are inclusive, you create many more opportunities for people. It's important not to engage in perfectionism to the point where you continue to exclude people who haven't had opportunities. You need to do the best that you can to create a space that is going to accommodate people.[10:31]What are your values? Who do you want to include? If somebody comes across your website if somebody comes across your work, experiences, your services, how would they be able to see those things? If those things aren't things you can articulate, or aren't built into your processes or language, then that's something to evaluate if things need to shift and research what people need. And how might you need to do things differently?[16:02]It's good to be clear about where you stand and understand who your people are and what they care about.Diversity Inclusion Statement[22:19]It's something that should be a living document. It shouldn't be something that you copy and paste because the way you include people might change over time because norms and expectations can change. Technology can change, and there are lots of different aspects that will change over time. So it's important to be current with your statements so that people know what to expect.Conclusion[25:10]Regarding diversity inclusion, sometimes people are afraid because they think they will be lectured and made to feel bad about themselves. It's not about guilt; it's about growth. We're all humans conditioned by our environments, and there's a lot of messaging out there that we internalize just being people. When we know better, we can do better.Discover more about Alison Tedford by visiting: http://alisontedford.com/

Revenue Accelerator with Diana Needham

Season 2021, Ep. 916
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, our guest will be Diana Needham, the CEO, and founder of Business Book Partners in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Diana has been making magic happen since 2008 for big business book partners, entrepreneurs, speakers, and business leaders. She has created over 90+ bestselling authors in a row using her proven system. Today, Diana tells us how she approaches her clients and how this system works.Diana’s Work Background[01:20]Project management is in my blood. So, one of the side things that makes me different, I think, from a lot of people that work with authors is that there is a proven process.[2:35]I had no time to work with my people. That's what I loved the most about my role: mentoring and working with people.Marketing Books[05:14]You need to be clear about some key questions at the very beginning. And the first one is about why am I writing this? What's the big heart story? I have to dig a lot of times to get the heart story behind the book. Why is this so important? Because you don't want to be writing the wrong book. And you don't want to be writing something you don't have passion for.[7:47]When I work with people from the beginning, they've got some idea, even if it's vague, which we refine, and we figure out those answers to those key questions. We know who it is, what the problem is that we're solving, what we want to be known for, what's the result that we want from this book.Knowing your end goal[14:19]It goes back to that foundation, those seven questions. And knowing your end goal, that's another thing that people miss is like, okay, at the end of the day, imagine you have this book in your hand. What do you want to have to happen? And they never thought about it. They want to get it out there but haven't thought about what they want.How changes are made[23:36]if you somehow got to the finish line with a book, and you're looking at it now through the lens of how can I use this as a business asset, there are probably some key things we could look at, tweak, rearrange and make it work.Starting conversations with partners[28:19]How do you start the conversation? Just turn the conversation from discussing the weather to whether we should work together. Does the conversation start with what you are reaching out to?Conclusion[30:44]It takes us a while to realize that what makes us different from everybody else who does what we do is our experience and story.Learn more about Diana Needham by visiting: www.dianamneedham.com

Revenue Accelerator with Kachina Gosselin

Season 2021, Ep. 1108
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Kachina Gosselin, an MIT graduate with a degree in aerospace. She is now coaching entrepreneurs, authors, and speakers to become elevated experts. Today, Kachina shares her thoughts about experts, what people should do to become one, and how to handle being one.Forgetting[01:28]The people we attract are good at what they do. And if you happen to be good at what you do, you forget what it's like to be a beginner.Knowing what to say and when[2:53]You don't have to have a Ph.D.; you don't have to have a book. You need to be a step ahead of your audience. They can be relatable and teach them what they need to know at the time.Authority[4:04]One of the things I like to talk about as an expert does have to have authority and authority isn't claimed. It's given, which means you can claim the expert title, but then people have to give you authority and say, I invite you to write that book or to be on that podcast that you can kind of put some weight behind that claim.Showing Vulnerability[12:14]I think there's something bonding with seeing somebody show humility and vulnerability, which makes it a little less intimidating for other people to do the same.External Perspective[14:36]I think that's where it helps to be in the community. And that's what mentorship is all about. Because of the courses we see, the easier it is to look at you from an external perspective and help you shine, and it's very hard to do that work yourself.Experts and Brilliant People[18:09]Right now, we are focusing a lot on our partnerships because we found that experts and brilliant people lift the people around them and have a constant stream of new introductions.Conclusion[19:48]The truth is if you can envision a future where your business works for you, you will get there. So, I want you to give yourself permission you can do less and earn more.Learn more about Kachina’s mentorship by visiting: www.elevatedexpertmentorship.com
