Tiny Projects for Public Speakers

March 26, 2020

Some of the small things that never seem to get done but can make a big difference in your professional public speaking business.

There are often so many small things we want to improve in our business. Maybe it's refreshing some photos on the website, polishing up some of the words on your “About” page, or updating your media kit.

In this episode, I'll share why Tiny Projects that can be done in 3-5 days are a great way to think about these tasks, as well as a bunch of ideas for Tiny Projects for public speakers, coaches, and entrepreneurs.

In this episode, I discuss the power of tiny projects, and I've got a couple of ideas of tiny projects that you can probably tackle in three to five days with a little bit of minimal effort and might make you feel good about getting stuff done.

I need some tiny projects. I need some quick wins, some short little look at what I did this week moments.

There's time just maybe to do some smaller spreads to lay off the need to be so damn productive and instead do some fun things that feel good. I also think that the whole goal right now is that maybe we should be creation and creating things.

A few tiny projects from the episode:

  1. Update your “About” page on your website

  2. Create (or update) your event planner or media kit that you send out when you book a gig or schedule a podcast/TV interview

  3. Create an intro video for your website

  4. Update your email sign-up nurture sequence

I've also got a bottle of great wine that I'm pairing with this episode from my friends at Brooks Wine in Oregon. The Runaway Red is a Pinot Noir made from grapes from 6 distinctive vineyards in Willamette Valley (the spot for great Pinot Noir in the United States IMHO).

You can also cozy up on the couch to watch an award-winning documentary about Brooks Wine called American Wine Story on your favorite streaming service.

What's A Keynote Director Anyway? Why Your Public Speaking Coach Really Isn't Helping You

The Anatomy of a Powerful Keynote: Nine Questions Your Keynote Must Answer for Transformation

My approach is all about transforming your relationship with your voice, body, and story. It's one thing to write about it - it's another to take a breath and speak the words out loud.

Ready for your close-up?

You don’t need a speaking coach, a formula, or to follow someone else’s steps. You need feedback about how the audience experiences your ideas, your presence, your story, and your speech. 

That’s what a keynote director does.

"Mike helped me create the signature keynote I'd been dreaming of giving.  He was so skillful, artful, creative in helping me create a #mikedropmoment."

“He should have charged me 5x as much because the VALUE I received was so astounding!”

“Working with Mike made me more compelling, more motivational, more relatable, and more myself”

A speaking coach can help you get comfortable.

Only a Keynote Director can help you become a legend.

Your big ideas deserve an EPIC performance. If you’re ready to take your story from alright to epic, let’s chat.
