How To Build A Successful Speaking Career With Grant Baldwin: Episode 1

In this episode of the Blissdom Podcast with Alli Worthington, we’re joined by Grant Baldwin, nationally known speaker, podcaster, speaking coach, author, and Blissdom workshop speaker.

Grant’s wisdom is top notch when it comes to building your speaking career. In this episode, he shares:

  1. The foundational questions all speakers must ask themselves when launching their speaking career.

  2. How to assess and strategically align yourself with the right audience.

  3. Why a narrow and focused message is actually the best way to book speaking opportunities.

  4. Setting realistic goals as a speaker.

  5. Pricing strategies you might not be considering (but should!)

  6. And what Grant wishes he knew about pursuing a speaking career 10 years ago.

Some of our favorite quotes:

  • “When I started speaking, I felt like I had the potential but I needed the plan.”

  • “Speaking is a long-term relationship business and relationships take time.”

  • “Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. It is mentally, emotionally, spiritually exhausting. And so you need people around you. If you don’t have those people, they are going to be at Blissdom.”

Getting Out Of Your Own Way with Jo Saxton: Episode 2

In episode 2 of the Blissdom Podcast with Alli Worthington, we’re joined by Jo Saxton, Blissdom Keynote speaker, author, and leadership expert.

Jo talks through why it’s time we get out of our own way and shares:

  1. How to confront and move past Imposter Syndrome.

  2. Why success doesn’t always feel comfortable and convenient and how to make peace with the hard parts of your journey.

  3. How to get out of your own way to rise to move forward in life and career.

Some of our favorite quotes:

  • “The reality is that both starting out and making pivots do require more mental and emotional energy…because change and transition does. There is something of a cost to making a shift. But just because it’s costly and difficult doesn’t make it wrong.”

  • “I think there was probably a burning passion in me from that point on ‘I don’t want anything or anyone to get in my way, but particularly not me.’”

  • “Inadequacy is a very powerful thing and it is very debilitating. And anything that makes us feel inadequate—we need coached out of us.”
