Linda Carroll of alohalinda.com is one of my beautiful members of onlinecoachsupport.com and also one of my students who invested in herself by joining me recently as I beta tested two of my courses:
It was great having Linda in the group. In regards to the Product Creators Course she was joined by Clare Lavender of coaching-i-am.com and Sue Folley of thecauseandeffect.com. As this was a very practical hands on course, it was great starting off with just a few participants. I was able to work with each of them to ensure they got the most out of the course. They each jumped in and contributed to snippets of little gold nuggets that I can now use for content and promotion of this course. Below is just one of those "nuggets" as Linda talks about "WHO WE SERVE..."
A snippet from Linda...
I have been in the International Toastmasters Organization since 2006. I joined because I had to do marketing presentations for the Washington State Realtor's Association and their affiliates, on a podium, with a microphone, addressing agents and lenders: people who handled hundreds of thousands of other people's money and homes.
Each audience represented millions of dollars that would change hands that day. It also represented the hopes and fears of people waiting to sell their home and move on in life; or wishing and dreaming to buy a home, and start a new part of their life.
How could I, in my brief moments, make them pay attention to the homes and buyers that I represented? How could I intrigue and convince them to work with me? How could I best perform the job of helping my sellers and buyers achieve their dreams and goals?
I joined the nearest Toastmasters and learned to hone my skills of effective speech, making my time and words work to the best effect. I left Real Estate when I moved to Hawaii, but I've continued to support speakers in the Kona Toastmasters Club. Helping a speaker who has a desire to express, who feels called and compelled to share a message--that's become the most valuable work that I perform.
My focus moved to supporting other speakers while I was still in Olympia, Washington. Watching a woman or man struggle against the obstacles of nervousness, uncertainty, undependable voice, not knowing what words to use and the powerful, jubilant transformation when everything begins to click, the words begin to flow, their heart opens and their eyes shine as they realize they can speak effectively and be heard and understood. That they have delivered a message, planted a seed, made a difference, even a small difference in the listener's life.
Even before Toastmasters I enjoyed speaking and acting. I performed in a few plays, done a little singing, and some voice acting too. Mostly amateur, some radio ads.
A surprising strength that I bring to Public Speaking is my long career in various retail and other sales. You see, every speech, every lesson, every negotiation is like a sales transaction. First, there's a problem to be solved, or a void to be filled. A solution is offered by the seller or the speaker and evaluated by the buyer or the listener.
It gets accepted or rejected. Both parties are satisfied...or not! The best sales, and the best speeches, are full of value, go smoothly and easily for both sides, and end up happy for everyone!
