Get Your Message Heard with Michael Hudson


Jul 10, 2017

In this episode I go out on a limb and share the 7 biggest mistakes I made when starting my speaking business. Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it, so save yourself from frustration and learn from my mistakes!

  1. Isolating Myself & Doing It Alone. Creativity is not a solo sport. Doing it on my own and not investing in support or expertise early on was a big mistake.
  2. Not Following the Recipes. I was too creative and too confident that I could tweak proven frameworks and do it my way.
  3. Throwing Too Much at the Audience and assuming they could figure it all out.
  4. Seeking Perfect Solutions. I caught myself in the cycle of test, learn, refine, repeat … without ever launching.
  5. Hiding My Story. Instead of creating connection, I sought to impress people. This actually led to less impact, not more.
  6. Failure to Capture videos, images, and testimonials.
  7. Failing to Build Relationships. A mastermind group helped me gain traction in this area like nothing else. I’ll talk more about this on the next episode because a mastermind group has had the single most significant impact on my business.
