There are those people, you know the ones ?, who seem to have it all, the lifestyle, the holidays and are attending all their kid’s events. When you listen to the backstory, they started in some scheme where they were using a product and begun to share it with family and friends. Now they are living the life, doing what they love.

Fear of Presenting
The thought of getting on stage in front of people can be quite daunting for a lot of people, even their worst nightmare. All those people looking up at them, what if the wrong thing is said, I sound like a fool or what if there are questions?
In a presentation from Brene Brown on Shame at a TED Talk talked about the power of vulnerability and standing on stage presenting to a large group. In the talk, she highlights the most significant power comes from been vulnerable, with the crowd agreeing to watch the fellow presenters who stood on stage and presented looked stronger, not weak.
Getting people presenting quickly when they first start network marketing is imperative if you want success duplicating. The power of network marketing comes from duplication; you must be duplicable. Setting the expectation, you will get it right the first time is a recipe for failure. Be open, be vulnerable, be coachable and your chances of succeeding in network marketing increases.
See Do & Teach
Teaching is a great way to reaffirm your knowledge – Matt Steer
Your slides should have the least amount of words as possible. The challenge I see when doing a presentation is, they are loaded with words with your audience reading instead of listening to you. If you want the crowd to understand, then use handouts. Many of the best presentations I have watched have used minimal slides, minimal words or utilise pictures to describe the topic, content or point they were making.
Begin practising using your tonality as a way of getting your message across. A tremendous and Cheap way to model how people use tonality to create emotions deliver punch lines is Comedians. Get on YouTube and find comedians who sound great (yes, sound great) and practise how they use tonality. It can also be a great evening of laughter.
Movement in front of your crowd. Wandering aimlessly back and forth is a great way to show someone you are uncomfortable on stage. Walk with purpose. The unspoken word is powerful.
- Use movements as a way to show two pieces of dialogue. Two different people, taking out the “well then she said”, then “I said” using your body posture, position on stage and tonality with a change in voice quality to say it.
- Using two parts of the stage, move between them to lessen two sides of a conversation
A picture is worth a thousand words. Be cautious which pictures or diagrams you use. You want the unspoken word conveyed to your audience at that moment during your presentation.
Practise, Practise & um some more practice. Don’t leave it to the last minute to work on your presentation, especially if you are demonstrating a product, or wanting people to follow you or join your email autoresponder. Practise your tonality, hand gestures and where you can stand on stage for different stages of the presentation.
