Episode 12: Talk About Public Speaking with Alexia Vernon

In this episode, I’m talking all about public speaking with my own public speaking coach, Alexia Vernon. Alexia and I have something big in common–we love the word “moxie.” In fact, Alexia loves it so much, she included it in her book title: Step Into Your Moxie. We chat about Alexia’s background in public speaking, being masterful with your message, why pre-speech nerves are good, and more. So if you’ve ever wondered if you could be the on that Wedding MBA stage, listen in!

We LOVE Bench Bookkeeping! Last year, I told Quickbooks to take a hike and hired Bench Bookkeeping. Now, dare I say – bookkeeping is fun? (Truth: Bc I’m not doing it myself!)

Bench Bookkeeping does your small business books FOR YOU. You get connected with an in-house bookkeeper – yes, an actual human – who prepares your monthly and yearly books. AND you get intuitive software so you can monitor your finances and biz performance like the pro that you are!

As a listener, you get 20% off your first 6 months of Bench. Just go to Friends don’t let friends do their own books, friends!
