Meet Robert: Master of Selling to Strangers

Greetings! It’s been an exciting time with new projects… Perhaps by now you’ve tuned into my podcast. Maybe you’ve listened to my interview with John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire? If so, thanks. I hope you enjoyed them.

And now it’s time to unveil my latest endeavor. This next idea happened almost by chance when I was waiting around in the Baltimore airport this summer when our flight was delayed. As I was relaxing in one of the rocking chairs in the terminal, I couldn’t help but listen to a very persuasive salesman in the corridor encouraging passengers to sign up for a new credit card.

He was funny. He was engaging. He was connecting effortlessly with total strangers.

And that got me thinking… All this time I have been sharing my insights about confidence, communication and connection, but it’s high time I shared a different perspective. My teaching is based on the idea that EVERYONE has a light inside of them. This light is the source of creativity, abundance, freedom and joy. When you connect with it, not only do you feel happy and content, but you can by guided to do your best work, help others and make an impact in this world.

And here’s the big secret. You don’t have to be a superstar of the screen, a maven of the internet or the richest person in your neighborhood to shine all 1000 Watts of your brilliance. It’s not about that. It’s time for me to show you people who are lit up about life, shining in everyday situations.

I hope you enjoy my first episode with Robert.  After watching him in action, I just had know the secret to his success. Now you will too!

P.S. How about you? What lit up people do you have in your life? What inspires you about how they carry themselves in the world? Let us know in the comments below.

Awkward on Camera? How to Overcome Your Habits

Years ago as an actress filming a shampoo commercial, the director yelled, “Cut!” and then he said to me: “Alexa, can you please stop licking your lips?” Embarrassed, I became suddenly super self-conscious of how I hold my mouth on camera. (And all I could think about...

The Benefits of Healthy Boundaries

The Benefits of Healthy Boundaries

Years ago, I worked with a freelancer who set the most perfect ground rules at the beginning of our relationship: Don’t call - instead, email me, I prefer email. If you email after this time, I won’t respond until that time. And we won’t discuss work on the weekends -...
