Share Your Heart Part 4

June 20, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Last week we covered the "A" letter of the acronym H.E.A.R.T., with the “H” standing for Hugs, the “E” standing for Emotion, and the “A” standing for Attitude. We continue today with the final 2 letters of the acronym, Reality and Thoughtful and a final Thought. Reality Kenny Chesney said it best “Reality, yeah, sometimes life ain’t all that it’s cracked up to be.  So let’s take a chance and live this fantasy. ‘Cause everybody needs to break free from reality.”  OK so maybe I’m in a bit of the island spirit here right now but this is a truth in mundane, everyday life as well.  Reality can somet...

Make Eye Contact Part 3

May 2, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Many of us came from a radio background, and frankly many DJs are still that throaty toolbag who isn’t speaking in their real voice to their clients.  No one wants to do business with something or someone who is phony. Be who you are. You’re human and your audience will relate to real world situations that you share with them. Your audience will connect with you more because what you are saying is REAL.  You’re not a made up character using a fake voice and persona. Make eye contact to ensure that you make a real connection with each member of your audience, especially if it’s an audience of one. ACTION STEPS:  The... [read more]

How Are You Being Fed Part 3

April 30, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
What are you listening to?  What are you absorbing? Having a positive affirmation each day can help you begin each day in a positive manner and things are what you are absorbing from inanimate objects. And specifically I'm talking about the podcast you listen to the shows you watch the books, you read the things that you absorb every day.  I began my seminar Creative Consultations at Mobile Beat 2011 with a video of a young girl showing off her positive mantras in front of her sink from a viral video back then. Before you watch the news or pick up that magazine, ask yourself “Is that a positive influence on my life?” How... [read more]

Make Eye Contact Part 2

April 25, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
Here’s an etiquette tip.  During a recent workshop I had the pleasure of conducting I went around the room of seated attendees and introduced myself.  I made it a point to specifically greet them by name, smile, look them in the eye and then outstretched my hand to touch both internally and externally the person I was trying to connect with.  NOT ONE of the workshop attendees stood up to shake my hand. Proper etiquette states that when someone introduces himself or herself to you and you are seated and they are standing that you stand up, look them in the eyes and extend your hand and with a firm but warm handshake to make ...

How Are You Being Fed Part 1

April 16, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
How are you being fed? Now, when I say, How are you being fed? I'm not talking about, you know, breakfast, lunch and dinner. That's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about how are you being fed from the people, the places and the things that are around you? Do you surround yourself with people that say, Yes, I can do this?  Or do you surround yourself with people or influences that say, No, or bring negativity into your life. We've all had different upbringings in our life.  In fact some people think it’s ok to go back and blame their upbringings. They use it as an excuse for where they are at in life... [read more]

Be A Chameleon Part 2

April 9, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week we continue where we left off last week in regards to Being A Chameleon in situations.  How’s your dining etiquette? You may or may not eat at your events but if you do you definitely should know proper etiquette for fancy or not so fancy meals.     What about your vocabulary?  You have to be able to adjust your vocabulary and mannerisms to fit any situation.  This is why I’m also not a big fan of scripting your entire presentation as you don’t always know in advan...
