Everyone knows that pageants are won in the interview room. Most competitors don't realize that titleholders get top scores by OUT-TRAINING their competition. And, yes, you are more than a contestant, you are a competitor!
The secret to winning is to work with someone who has a proven system for producing titleholders. Need some interview practice and tips? I'm your lady!
Why am I so confident you can get top scores? Because I've helped many first-time and experienced contestants just like you capture the crown.

Job interviews can be rough! You think you did well, but then you never get a callback or advance to the next interview. When this happens enough times, it can steal your confidence and hit your self-esteem.
You're probably saying to yourself, "My resume should speak for itself," or, "I don't feel comfortable talking about myself." But if you're relying on old strategies and mindset for landing this new job, you'll start feeling like you're running out of options.
As an executive consultant, I coach professionals who are in transition and seeking new employment; I have a 99% success rate.
Caseworkers refer their clients to me because they're confident in my strategies and my abilities to get people hired. This training is life-changing because the skills you learn to ace your interview will continue to serve you once you get hired. You'll learn how to fit in, and how to stand out.

You may want to save this! A good presentation will help you build visibility, trust, and eventually turn your audience into clients, voters, or land you that promotion.
Here are some tips to ace your speech:
1. Go in with the right mindset. Confidence equates to certainty in the minds of others, and people pay for certainty.
2. Stay out of monotone. If you use a monotone voice, people will be checking their emails under the tables instead of listening to you.
3. Practice your speech beforehand.
4. Know your material well enough to be able to look down at your notes, pull a few keywords and be able to talk about them. This requires that you practice your speech.
5. Make eye contact. It draws the audience in. But don't hold any one person hostage with the eyes. They'll start avoiding your gaze.
The points listed above are just a few of MANY. But if you only had time to choose a few, this list is a great start.

Didn't get the promotion you wanted? Here is a list of possible reasons why:
1. You made the mistake of thinking you were the only one being considered for the promotion.
2. You decided to show up and wing it. "Winging it" is never a strategy.
3. You didn't make enough eye contact. Or worse, you made too much eye contact and creeped the interviewer out.
4. Your answers to their interview questions were boring and unremarkable.
5. You talked about your past accomplishments, but didn't speak to the value you could provide in this new position.
6. Your body language gave away the nervousness and anxiety you were trying to hide.
7. Your handshake was weak or it was wet from holding the chilled glass of water they offered you.
8. You weren't dressed for the position you want to hold.
I have an excellent track record helping people land their dream jobs because they learn how to walk in prepared, confident, and ready for their interviews. Let's work together!

Today is National Awkward Moments Day, which leads me to this thought...

My coaching gives science-backed strategies and sage advice. Let me help you reduce the number of awkward moments in your life!
Do you have questions about building confidence around speaking in front of groups, networking, standing out, or fitting in..?
Send me your questions or comments via email at [email protected]
This is a good question! Why? Because no one wants to fail when they're presenting in front of an audience. What often happens is when you get nervous or anxious, your voice will get monotone. Monotone kills presentations.
Here's an easy exercise that will help bring more life and engagement to your speech or presentation: Turn on the TV or YouTube. Find someone you think is a good speaker. Now watch her with the sound off. Notice the facial expressions, where her hands are, how she's standing, what her face looks like when she's talking AND when she's not talking. Then with the sound on, close your eyes and just listen to her. How does she pace her sentences? What's her voice like? Does she vary her tone?
DO rehearse out loud
DON'T sound canned or monotone
DO write how you talk when you create your speech
DON'T worry about flubs - it makes you human.

Ahhh, the podium. Thinking you can hide behind a podium is making a big mistake.
Using a podium does have several advantages. It can feel like a life preserver when you're in the deep end of a pool. The podium grounds you by giving you something solid to touch. With that said, I recommend that you stand to one side of it whenever possible.
1. Standing beside it removes some of the formality of the interview.
2. When you're parallel to the podium, you're closer to the judges. This makes the interview seem more intimate.
3. Stand on the far side of the podium. This gives the judges more time to see you walk, and being further away from the door will make you appear more at ease.
Still want to use that podium? I have tips on how to use it effectively! Want to work with me? Email me at [email protected] and I'll tell you about the scholarships I have available for pageant contestants.
It’s hard to behave in an authentic way if you don’t know what you value and desire. At its root, authenticity requires self-awareness and self-knowledge, and accepting your strengths and weaknesses.
Acceptance isn’t always easy, but it’s what we strive for. Authenticity is the basis of executive presence. Trust your intuition. Choose things that move you closer to your values. Notice when you’re being inauthentic.
Research shows that authentic people feel better. They’re more resilient and less likely to turn to self-destructive habits. Authenticity develops trust, credibility, and confidence with the people you interact with.
Authenticity can feel scary and vulnerable, but it also builds intimacy. Be purposeful in your choices. If you’re finding yourself feeling fragmented, bored, unhappy, or uninspired, it could be that you aren’t acting authentically. Creating space for self-awareness is ever-evolving.
