Ep #161: How Executive Coach Jill Griffin Makes a Powerful Impact Sharing Her Story

by | Podcast, Public Speaking, Speaking Anxiety, Speaking Delivery Skills, Unleashed

The most common type of question I get is: How did they do it?

How did they get the 5-figure speaking gig?

How did they land the interview in the media or on that amazing podcast?

What does it take to really, truly build a business and/or meaningful impact on your story and expertise?

The answer to that question is as varied as the people asking – and living out that story.

There are some key things that need to happen, though. You need to be willing to share yourself, even some of the stuff that scares you (it doesn’t have to be all of it!). You need to spend time knowing who you serve and how your story can best inspire them, teach them and move them to action.

Jill Griffin built an award-winning, remarkable corporate career. One where she had lunch with Oprah and got to meet President Barack Obama. She hung out with famous musicians. She also helped many world-class brands bring in even more customers and additional millions of dollars.

And she did all of that while hiding a traumatic brain injury that made doing her job so much harder than it had been before.

Already recognized as an expert in strengths-based leadership and career strategy, Jill decided to begin sharing more of her story in her speaking and thought leadership. This has led to opportunities and impact that have made her business and career even more successful and satisfying.

You’ll be both inspired by and served well through this conversation with Jill Griffin. Enjoy!
