Why Your Speaker Pitch Isn't Working (Part 2)

You spent hours toiling away at your pitch to speak at your favorite conference.

You brainstormed a ton of topics, had your mastermind help you pick the best one, and your biz bestie looked over your pitch before you sent it in.

THE FIRST STEP IN OVERCOMING ADVERSITY

Let’s just address the elephant in the room: everyone faces adversity in our lives. Yes, everyone.
