“When you don't exaggerate who you are, you almost become generic. What's bringing the audience to you is how you connect with them by showing your personality and these little quirks that you have in your character.”
“They say ‘Your ideal client is you six months ago.’ This is very common advice. But that's not always the best ideal client. Sometimes you're supporting someone who's very different and you were never that person. This is permission to be talking to people that are not like you.”
“Really dig deep into your stories. Stories that your audience will be like, ‘Oh my gosh, Did she just say that out loud?’ Because those are the moments that are going to connect with your listener.”
