Former TODAY Show Anchor Still Gets Nervous

It’s typical…you’re going out to speak in front of a crowd or even make a toast at a family dinner and here come the hand shakes…the perspiration…maybe even a dry mouth, and as you draw your attention to it, it gets worse!

Well, former TODAY Show anchor Jane Hanson said she has experienced this, no matter how many times she has appeared in front of the masses and hearing her say this somehow makes me feel BETTER. Not because she has suffered through it also but because that I know that if she gets it, then all of us should know that it’s more common than we think. It’s how to deal with it and plow through it – perhaps even USE it! – to communicate your message the most effective way with your audience, whether you are on TV, in front of a live audience or simply putting yourself out there in front of the family at that holiday meal. Here is Jane talking about the ways we can best Broadcast Our Brand and even use foibles to our advantage:

My Digital Personal Conundrum

I do digital…who doesn’t these days? Or can’t?

I have such a push-pull of crossing that digital line into the personal which includes meeting people as well as “laying it all out there” for everyone to see.

The PUSH: I have a choice – I realize that. I don’t HAVE to lay out my personal life on TV, radio and wherever else I decide to build my personal brand through my story, but I do. And if I didn’t, people could find it out anyway. But sometimes I WANT to go offline for a few weeks…but I may miss something or I think, it won’t help my brand to not be relevant.

The PULL: The more we reveal our true selves, the more we can help people and be authentic and use our story to move forward with ourselves, whether it be in business, finding a soulmate, strengthening out spirituality or anything else.

So tonight’s show particularly interests me on a personal level because in our very digital world it’s such a fine line to be walking…or is it?

Ditching Those Mental Blocks

5.3 Ditching Mental Blocks Social

We had a feeling that there are more mental blocks than people realize, so we asked the experts how they coach people to deal with them, and even how to find them! Dr. Colleen Mullen, licensed marriage and family therapist, and Jennifer Longmore, master healer and international bestselling author, shine a light on better understanding ourselves and our mental proclivities.

4.26 Jenna Wolfe social post

I had the honor and privilege of interviewing former TODAY Show anchor Jenna Wolfe on my show this week, along with my awesome co-host Kristin West, and I was so impressed with her honesty and way of laying it all out there no matter what we were talking about. I asked her if she taught classes in how to be like that on camera LOL and in the end, she is just like one of us – trying to figure out who she is and staying true to that sense of self.

For in the end, we are only who we are from what we make of ourselves, right?

Listen to this epic interview, “Be Bold” here:
