I went to see Debbie Allen speak a the National Speakers Association event last night in Wellington. A very impressive lady with some great tips to share. Not only is Debbie in the top 5% of motivational speakers, she has also bought and sold 7 businesses. This got my attention, a true entrepreneur living a life of her dreams. She was a great speaker and shared loads of her own secrets to success. My favourite of her many tips last night was “Get your ASK in gear!” I’ve always believed if you don’t ask the answer is always no, so I agreed wholeheartedly as she told us all to ask for what we want at every opportunity. She also advised speakers and educators to get your own unique brand mark/style. Hers is ‘Shame-less” and everything she teaches revolves around shame-lessly promoting yourself. With my ASK firmly in gear, I managed to grab a quick interview with Debbie after her show last night. Check it out, you’ll see what I mean!
