    Great tips Deb! When I call my list of contact, what should I say? I can’t say “I’m a consultant with…..” they will automatically think I’m wanting to sell something. Can you give me a script or an idea of what you said when you were making these calls?

      When you call the libraries, Stephanie, you should be prepared with what you have to offer of value. Check this article on getting started in public speaking that is linked out of the library article above:

      You do not have to say you are a consultant with MyFantastic Company – Just say your name and ask who is in charge of the library workshops for the community. Then when you talk to her/him, say you would like to volunteer your services and you have a couple of topics that may be of interest then just ask, what type of events do they have a need for?

      Using the 10 second rule, share briefly and ask a question, then listen to their needs and find out what they need help with.

      You do not need to share and should NOT plan to do a party plan presentation. You have many things of value and need to offer them to many different organizations, not just libraries but how about the Girls Scouts or Youth Groups, corporations, and so much more.
      What benefits can you offer to provide value in the community?

      You are not marketing a party you are offering a service and when you focus on how you can help then they will be interested in learning more.

    I have enjoyed this series. Thank you for all the wonderful information. I am a Silpada Rep. I will be joining the Toast Masters to help me speak in front of people and maybe be able to do a work shop.

      Shared by: Deb Bixler:

      Cool – glad to hear that, Tammy – we have several articles on getting started in speaking too! So, let me know if you need any more guidance!

    Hi Deb,
    Thanks so much for the fabulous webinars! One question I do have is about being a guest speaker. I am a Silpada Designs jewelry rep and I am wondering what exactly I would show people or what I would teach them. I am sure you are full of great ideas! Thanks for any help!

      Shared by: Deb Bixler:

      Well Cynthia, that is really up to you and your skills. We cover this in greater detail in the PAID Version of the webinar. But….

      You need to create your own list of topics. You can not do someone else’s. Make a list of your passions, hobbies, skills and business attributes then evaluate them for value…

      Try this article that was linked out of the page to a related article. It may help. Getting Started In Public Speaking:

      The topic does not need to relate to the product line. It is just a way to get to know people and sprinkle your info out there. New leads is the goals! You could be teaching ‘how to knit a sweater’ and still share things that create curiosity for your business….

      You will always share your story at the beginning and end with some sort of invitation then sprinkle within the workshop something like in the middle of the class saying “One of the reasons I love working from home with my Silpada business is that I have more time to knit!”

      Check out that article for a step by step process to creating your list of skills. Hope that helps!

    I am loving this series. I hope my team is watching it, I keep sending it on but wonder if they are really taking action. Wish I could get them more motivated. If this is the free one, I can not wait for the paid one.

    Great!!!I have all kinds of ideas, jot them down, then get involved in the next day. I had just decided today to quit putting things off…now you are reinforcing that Take Action…I shall post sticky notes with that all over the house. I am going to the library, this week. I shall ask. One question. I had not asked at the library, because they don’t allow sales…do you suggest just like a service and take names, or mention products at the time. How do you handle that situation?

      Shared by: Deb Bixler:

      When you offer services to groups whether it is the library or the Kiwanis club you are not going to sell things or schedule shows. You are going to meet new people. Then when you share your story and create desire by sprinkling into your talk, or workshop you will meet people that have an interest.

      Maybe you sell baskets and your “value” workshop is how to make a center piece.

      You do not push your products but make the presentation good with our without your products. Any basket will work but your top 20 reasons why your business is sprinkled within… and you will find people who have an interest.

      1:10 will have an interest. We talk a lot about this in the full version of the University… how to get into presenting these events.

      Also, regarding what Anna said, if your workshop name is good and has value it does not matter what company you are with. What do you do to add value not what company you work.

    Take Action!! I am going to make sure I take action everyday on my business. I don’t know why I think business will come knocking at my door or that leaving a voicemail message and not following why I think that is taking action. I am excited and I will be taking action.

    Thanks Deb!
    I have actually been going to our library with my son an a regular basis and never thought of doing a presentation….just watch me bust right out of my comfort zone now lol

    Shared by: Anna Martin:

    Thank you for giving examples. I have a lot of ideas but get stuck when it comes to How to impliment. Where to begin. Example: approx. 3weeks ago I printed pages of preschools in a 10 mile radius of my home. My intention was to contact these organization to help raise funds through fundraising. I didn’t have much luck. The problem, I need help with the information I am giving…I tend to ramble. Also, when I say I’m a consultant with the Pampered Chef the conversation goes stale.

    Thank you for your time.
