Hello and welcome, this week I have something very special to bring to you, I decided to go into my archives and pull a very special interview I did this past spring with a dear friend and colleague Rita Deo Barber.
Rita was a part of a three event I held last spring called The Monetize Your Gifts Masterclass, she was the final presenter on the last day of the event and she shared some really valuable content that I know is just as fresh and relevant as when she first presented.
On this interview we talk about the power of visualization, asking for what you want, using social media responsibly and dealing with those pesky naysayers ~ the people that you may have in your life, although I really hope you don’t that tell you are crazy for going for your dreams.
This is interview is packed with so much content that I had to create a downloadable summary guide along with the regular show notes I provide with every podcast. You can get that summary guide along with today’s show notes on this page.
I’ll provide a link to get that guide which I suggest you download and use while you’re listening. Although if you’re driving or on a walk or a working at the gym you won’t be able to download it, but as soon as get back to your desk I suggest you do that.
I also one additional caveat to share with regarding the summary sheet Rita made an offer for a six week course at the end of the original presentation. It would be safe to assume that offer is no longer available as this recording was taken several months ago.
But, if you found value with the things Rita had to share, as I no doubt feel you will feel, free to reach out to her and see what current programs she might be offering, possibly something similar to her original offer ~ a six week tele-course. And tell her how you heard of her via the podcast.
It is my firm belief that each and everyone one of us is gifted at something.
Unfortunately, many of us walk through life never fully knowing what our true gift actually is or worst, knowing it, and totally ignoring it because of self doubt, fear, and myriad of other afflictions that stop us dead in our tracks ~ usually before we’re about to have a breakthrough. This is a topic that if very near and dear to my heart.
