If you are seeking a six-figure job, listen in to enjoy this three-part interview series with Six Figure Pro Tammy Kabell and yours truly. You’ll learn a lot about putting your best story forward so you can get hired for the job you want and get on with the business of welcoming that six-figure income of which you and your skills and proven pattern of success are so worthy.
I share some common bio blunders and some specific things to do to upgrade their LinkedIn profiles to get found faster by the folks with the discretion to engage people just like you. Enjoy!
Yesterday’s teleclass — Broadcast Your Brilliance – Monetize Your Message — invited quite a few warm and appreciative comments from listeners. One woman wrote to me to say that the use of the confessions technique added to my credibility and accessibility.
On the one hand, that makes me happy. Other other hand, I again confess that it never occurred to me that I was using a technique. As an advocate for authentic visibility, I strive to speak the truth when it comes to the tough lessons I’ve learned along the way. If I can help you get to success faster as a result of my missteps, I’ll gladly do it.
While watching my son play soccer on Sunday morning, the words “confessions and lessons” came to me. The “word wizard” within me smiled. These words are a very real way to describe how I want to connect and serve those who follow my work. And since you are reading this post, I thank you for being among them.
If you haven’t yet registered to enjoy the recording — which is also being made available as a recorded webinar with PowerPoint slides — you still can. (I re-recorded the presentation to exclude those distracting entry exit beeps.) There I go again, revealing that not every event goes according to plan. You just have to roll with it, be as graceful as you can, deliver what you promise, and do so from a genuine commitment to service.
Based on the warm feedback and the hundreds of new opt-ins that have flowed since yesterday, I know this content is resonating.
Here is the link so you can opt-in to get the recording. I’d love to hear about your “aha” moments and favorite messages from this call. Please listen in and post a comment.
When I searched the term “monetizing your blog” a while back, Darren Rowse of ProBlogger came up first in the search. He is the leading authority in this area. He’s just updated his 31 Days to Build a Better Blog book for 2012. I highly recommend this book for a step by step approach that guides you day by day to build a better blog for your business. Darren is offering a 25% off limited discount for the next two weeks. This is a proven, helpful resource that has been used by tens of thousands of people already — me included. Check it out.
I really enjoyed my “Success Talk with Alison Marks” today. She is the founder of 6 Figure Home Office. Among the many things I shared were the eight Big Shift Affirmations I repeat to myself every day to stay focused on my biggest intentions for my life and work. And, I revealed that each of these affirmations stems from having made a prior habit of doing the opposite. Pretty revealing stuff.
I think bigger every day.
I stand in my value.
I show up.
I work smart.
I ask for help and delegate.
I attract perfect partners.
I am enough.
I “pay it forward” at least once daily.
Listeners called in immediately to share some lovely raves about the other things I shared.
Elizabeth In Cathedral City said, “I attended Nancy’s class this past summer. She is the best. Eat macaroni and cheese for a month if you have to, but work with her. She will make you a rock star!”
Miryam in Seattle said, “Nancy, I’ve followed your emails for a couple of years since I met you, and I’m so impressed by your clarity and your ability to reduce your concepts to such easily understood concepts. Brava!”
Susan in Montreal said, “I used your bio format for an opportunity, and got a reply right back, even though I did not make the cut for the proposal. She loved my bio, and wanted me to redo hers!”
I shared other revelations about the journey to create a business I can be proud of and some of the “opportunities” I have still to face. If you’d like to listen in, you can. Just opt-in at this link, and you’ll be all set. And, if you’d like to share “aha” moments that resonate in the blog post below, you will be entered to win Bye-Bye Boring Bio PLUS! provided you post your comment by midnight on 11-18.

Alison Marks of 6 Figure Home Office interviews entrepreneurs about how they run their successful businesses, and she has a knack for getting at the tender underbelly about what folks do well and not so well. This is the kind of truth-telling that I find very refreshing. It’s part of my own “authentic visibility” brand to show up and speak my own truth. She is interviewing me at noon on November 15 to pull those kinds of nuggets from me. I’d love to have you listen in. Here is the link to opt-in so you can get the call-in details.
