This episode of the Public Speaking Super Powers Podcast features Carma’s interview with Gayle Carson. Gayle is a spunky old broad — or at least that’s what her website proclaims. She has presented programs in 50 countries and 49 states. And is a radio talk show host, columnist, and midlife crisis coach.
Length: 15 minutes, 51 seconds
Gayle Carson lives up to her reputation as a spunky old broad in this interview, as we disagreed on one or two fine points. In this episode, she shares her opinions on skill vs. talent, marketing and having a unique message.
Gayle Carson’s Big Tip: “You really need your own unique stories,” says Carson. “Stories that have happened only to you. And you really need to see that your message is totally different from anybody else or else you’re just going to be another person who will be a speaker and be able to do presentations, but you won’t be a superhero.”
