Podcast Highlights

Length: 8 minutes, 31 seconds

In this episode, Tracy Houston talks about creating a connection with your audience through your story. “I think one thing that helps me to stand out is the ability to be authentic and vulnerable in front of audiences, and that kind of emotional connection really makes an impact. People hear me in a different way, they begin to open up much more freely.” She shares her tips on how to find your story and use it in your presentations.

Tracy Houston’s Big Tip: Look back on your life, she says, “and look at key points in life that presented a challenge.” These moments in your life are “where you really felt that you had to make a decision that either improved or enlarged your self-esteem and your presence.” Find the thematic thread in those moments to use in your presentations.
