Today, I was lucky enough to be part of a BLAB interview where I was live and a little too lively, I guess. But this is me - I am super passionate about my business and what I bring to the table. As a published author with 4 books (order them on my Website or via my Amazon Author Page) as well as someone who has been an educator, entrepreneur and executive for over a decade plus, I feel I can help so many people take their next steps.
Check out the replay of the live event here before I go into more about what it was like: Jonathan Tripp BLAB talk with Lisa Vento Nielsen on Entrepreneurship and Brands
I got to talk so much about what I do and WHY I do it - it is not about the money - it is about helping people and that was why I got so deep into talking about how people who become your clients, they just know. They hire you because they know you will help them and you cannot force anyone to "hire" you - you cannot force someone to want to listen to you or to be happy for all that you do in any way or career.
As an entrepreneur, it is challenging because you are looking to gain clients but it has to be for the right reasons. You cannot chase after someone or something for their dollars - it has to be instead about why it benefits them to hire you and what you bring to the table.
I am passionate about what I do and this is why I promote it and share content every day. It is also why I enjoyed seeing the live chat bar on the side of the event and responded to some of the comments. It was hard to focus on the interview while knowing I needed to make eye contact via that camera - I mean, after all, I do Media Training for my clients and students - I know I need to focus on the camera and it made me miss some of the awesome comments.
Someone posted that they thought I was "high" because I kept "laughing and smiling" and I actually posted that to my FaceBook to share with my close friends who know me in real life - I have always been super hyper and I laugh a lot. See, too lively for livestreaming, I guess :). I actually told the commenter that I was not high as I get drunk off of Orange Juice and did have some before the interview to which he/she responded they were going out to buy some orange juice immediately. That is just so funny to me because when I lived in Italy for my MBA, my nickname was "succo d'arancia" because whenever we went out, that was what I drank and it would make me more hyper so people would think it was something more than just "orange juice". Some things do not change no matter how old you get, I guess.
I loved the exposure and the results - some of the viewers connected with me on Twitter and LinkedIn and I think I will gain immensely from the additional platform of sharing my lessons and more. The host was amazing and you should all check out his work. He suggested that I continue to use live stream video to share my message but man, I am just so lively it might be too much ...
