Seize the Mic: Empowering Your Voice in the Digital Era

🌍 Don’t Wait for TED, Invite Yourself to Share! 📢

Imagine this: TED Talks organizers call you today and invite you to speak on the main TED stage 90 days from now. You’d be thrilled, right? You’d prepare, rehearse, and eagerly await your moment.

Here’s the kicker – the average TED Talk only gets around 15,000 views. 📺

Instead of waiting for TED to extend the invite, why not seize the opportunity yourself? You can share your brilliance with the whole world, just like I’m doing now – grab a camera, record yourself speaking. 📹

Your video might not hit 15,000 views, but you can consistently reach more than that every single month, just like I do. Share your insights on various platforms, and your voice can touch lives across the globe.

Sure, you might not go viral like TED’s biggest hits with 60 million views, but by speaking regularly, you can impact more people than an average TED Talk.

Don’t sit around and wait – invite yourself to share your ideas, brilliance, and creativity with the world. Life is too short to just stand by. 🚀🗣️

🎤 Ready to Unlock the Power of Public Speaking? 🚀

So you’ve been asked to give a speech, presentation, or talk. Should you say yes or no? Let’s break it down.

👎 On the downside, there’s the time, money, and potential hassle of travel. You might fear looking foolish, or worry about a controversial topic sparking animosity. Plus, there’s the effort of preparing your speech.

👍 But here’s the exciting part: Speaking can lead to new clients, promotions, and reshape how others perceive your leadership potential. It might even impress someone special! 🥰

During my time as President of the National Speakers Association New York Chapter, I saw many speakers trace their success back to a single speech early in their careers.

Public speaking can open doors to media appearances, your talk show, and lasting professional connections.

With online platforms like Zoom, travel costs and hassles are no longer barriers.

The most compelling reason? Boosting your personal brand. It establishes credibility, respect, and sets you apart in today’s world of personal branding. 🎙️

So, if you’re invited to speak, think twice before saying no. 🗣️ The opportunities and successes can be tremendous. And if you want to take it even further, grab your phone, hit record, and share your ideas with the world! 📲🎥

🎙️ Grabbing Attention in the Social Media World 🌟

Gary Vaynerchuk is spot on about the importance of attention in the social media realm. But for most of us who aren’t world-class athletes or incredibly beautiful, how do we get noticed online?

It’s simple: Speak up. 🗣️

To truly stand out, you need to say something captivating, something valuable. Even if you’re not a stand-up comedian, you can deliver ideas that enrich people’s lives in their personal life, career, or business.

Here’s the thing, you already possess interesting and helpful ideas. You share them with friends, family, and colleagues daily. Why not take it to the next level and share them with the whole world through video? 🎥

By speaking your mind, you can capture that elusive attention. So, are you ready to make your mark in the social media world? It all starts with your voice. 🚀🌐

🎤 Unlock Your Potential with Video Speaking 🎥

Hey, I’m TJ Walker, and I’m not here to promise you overnight riches or astronaut dreams. Instead, I want to motivate you to take a simple yet transformative step: make videos. 

Every day, share your expertise, insights, and how you help others. 🤝

Why? Because I firmly believe that speaking on video is the number one way to boost your career, yourself, and your bottom line. Look around you – the most successful people you know, you recognize them because they speak out. Whether it’s on YouTube, Shark Tank, or CNBC, successful folks use their voices to make an impact.

And the beauty of it is that you don’t need anyone’s permission. No gatekeepers to hold you back. Just hit record and share your wisdom.

So what are you waiting for? All you need is a touch of skill and a dose of confidence. I’m not just urging you; I’m begging you to take the leap. 🚀

Ready to make a difference? Start today. 📢

🚫 No More Excuses, It’s Time to Shine with Social Media Videos! 📹

Let’s cut to the chase – stop with the excuses about not having time to create social media videos to promote your business. There’s always time for what’s essential.

Imagine this: If a colleague called you up right now and said, “Our top 10 prospects are in town tomorrow at the Hilton Hotel; we’ve got 15 minutes to pitch to them at 9:00 a.m.” You’d make it a priority, right? You’d rearrange your schedule, and you’d be motivated to seize this opportunity.

Well, guess what? You can speak to not just 10 but potentially 10,000 of your industry’s top prospects if you create videos that can be shared worldwide. 🌍

The issue with online video is that it can be viewed anytime, which means you can make it anytime. But remember, you’ll never get today back. Every day that passes, your competitors are making videos, sharing their expertise, and getting ahead.

If you’re sitting back, waiting for the “perfect” time – after the upcoming travel, after the holidays, after whatever – you’ll never make a social media video. It’s like trying to reach the horizon; you’ll never quite get there. 🌅

No more excuses – start making videos and share your invaluable insights with the world. 🚀🗣️

🚀 Elevate Your Career: Make a Video Every Day! 🎥

If you’re genuinely committed to propelling your career, there’s one game-changing move you need to make: create a video every single day, sharing your expertise.

Think about it – if your boss walked in and said, “We’ve got a meeting with our top prospect,” you’d find a way to make it happen right away. Well, here’s the exciting part: you can engage with prospects, industry thought leaders, clients, and potential clients every single day.

All you have to do is hit that record button, share your ideas on video, and spread it on social media. 💡

Sure, it might not rain thousands of dollars daily, but it opens up the possibility of your message reaching the right people. And that won’t occur unless you push the record button. 

Your content doesn’t have to be wildly entertaining or lengthy – it could be a short 20 seconds – as long as you’re sharing ideas that captivate and benefit others. You don’t have to be a supermodel or a comedian; you just have to be valuable. 📈

So, what are you waiting for? Start making those valuable videos today! 🚀🗣️
