Length: 21 minutes, 2 seconds
Robinson’s journey to professional speaking started when things had changed in her job and she wondered, “What should I be doing? How can I give something back now?” She was so concerned with this question, she prayed. “And then it didn’t take long before the answer came, and that was public speaking. But not only public speaking, not just presentation skills, … but specifically persuasive speaking skills, and teaching them to business owners, entrepreneurs, and service professionals, on how to use it to get clients.”
Speaking from personal experience, Robinson suggests that if you want to improve your speaking skills, you should hire a mentor who is actively speaking.
Robinson’s Big Tip: “I teach people the Lay’s potato chip approach. The Lay’s potato chip approach is this: What is it? You can’t stop at one. You can’t just eat one Lay’s potato chip. You need more. You want to eat more until that bag is gone. Then you’re going to go buy another bag. So, I would share with people, you know the more you give them, the more that they will know that you’ve got. Because if you’re generous, and you give your knowledge away, well who would give it away if that was all there was? They wouldn’t!”
