Have you ever wanted to figure out how to make speaking work for your business? If so, curl up friend—this is for you!

I tell people I’m an ENFJ Myers-Briggs who doesn’t know where the “E” comes from—truthfully, I test 1 point over on extrovert than introvert on the personality test most days … I think that stems from a background in communications and public relations. In fact, I get most my energy from processing alone and am pretty quiet and introverted!

But, I like to speak.

Love it, in fact.

How to make speaking work for your business podcast interview with creative copywriter Ashlyn Carter

Going from a shy girl who adored leadership in high school to someone who doesn’t get too nervous to stand on a stage has been a big journey in my life, and I’m far from perfect at speaking! I do attribute it a lot to leadership in a sorority in college—serving as recruitment chair, then chapter president, then as a leadership consultant traveling and speaking in front of hundreds of women was ripping the band-aid off for me.

These days, speaking looks more like telling my story of eating disorder and anxiety recovery + copywriting training.

Which brings me to Jessica. 🙂 My speaking coach!

Today, I’m honored to swing your way with a new podcast episode over on the NEW podcast, The Creative Speaker, hosted by my coach Jessica Rasdall.

The Creative Speaker is a podcast for creatives to learn how we can elevate our industry when it comes to conferences, education, and speaking.

On this episode, Jess digs into how I got started speaking, how to make it part of your business model, and more. If that’s something you need, tune into Episode #10 | How to Make Speaking Work for Your Business of The Creative Speaker show.

Let’s go!

Highlights include:

  • Why speaking should fit into your business—not something else to your already full plate!
  • How I learned that speaking is a conversation with your audience … not a memorized five-page presentation (oops)
  • Before you jump on the stage and try to teach what your service is, how you can teach it from where you are, right now?
  • How to share your personal story with an audience (tip: share your scars, NOT your wounds!)
  • When to know if you should speak for free—or not

Resources mentioned include:

Again, I am so grateful to have Jess in my corner to help show me how to talk about things like eating disorders on a big stage—I was SO nervous to begin that journey, and she really helped me communicate it with grace. If you’re wondering how to make speaking work for your business, she’s the best coach!
