106: Public Speaking As An Emerging Thought Leader // Alexia Vernon

Pattern of Purpose

You’re ready to speak more but you aren't sure what to talk about. You aren't even convinced your story is compelling enough to share. Today's guest, Alexia Vernon, would challenge you on that point. She believes that we are equipped with the tools we need to make an impact from the stage right now.  As a sought-after executive coach, trainer, keynote speaker, and author, Alexia’s ease in front of an audience came with patience and practice. We talk about what it looks like to integrate social justice into our businesses, how the Miss Junior America competition introduced Alexia to public speaking, and why thought leaders must be unapologetic truth-tellers. Throughout our conversation, Alexia illustrates adjustments we can make in our approach to public speaking and how to uncover what it is about our lived experience that resonates with audiences more than expertise ever could. In this episode, we cover: The defining experience that introduced Alexia to public speaking; The myth of "not being enough of an expert yet" and how that holds us back from pitching ourselves; Multiple strategies for aligning our public voice with our brand messaging; How negotiating and asking for more can help others to do the same; Tips for how much of your story you should share in your messaging; Why, as speaker, you need to have multiple stories in your back pocket; and The impact a cancer diagnosis has had on Alexia's business and life.

Ep 79: Speak your Truth with Step Into Your Moxie’s Alexia Vernon

Mother's Quest Podcast

I’m honored to invite you along for this conversation with my speaker coach and friend Alexia Vernon, about the responsibility we have to clarify what matters most to us and to speak our truth. Recorded the afternoon before election day 2020, this episode arrives at just the right moment. Because no matter what comes next, we understand more than ever now the importance of using our perspectives, our stories, and our feelings, the full range of them, to deliver our message and create change. I first met Lex during a workshop she led at Camp GLP (Good Life Project) and became instantly drawn in by her experience and presence. Branded a “Moxie Maven” by Obama’s White House Office of Public Engagement, Lex is a renowned speaking coach to entrepreneurs, coaches, and influencers who want to spread their bold ideas, grow their businesses, and advance their thought leadership. She supports thousands of speakers through her training, events, and mastermind, speaks at Fortune 500 companies, TEDx, and at the United Nations and her advice has been featured by CNN, NBC, and CBS, to name a few. She’s also the author of the award-winning book, Step into Your Moxie, the host of the Moxielicious podcast, and the creator of the popular LinkedIn Learning course, Communicating to Move People to Take Action. Last year, I had the honor of hosting an Improv for Speakers event Lex led and then serving as an Ambassador and Affiliate for her signature speaking program, The Spotlight Speaker Accelerator. Half-way through the program, we found ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic, wondering whether our messages and voices still mattered, but showing up anyway with Lex as our guide. Another member of the Mother’s Quest Community who kept showing up, someone I deeply admire, and one of my favorite podcast guests, is the Mom Center’s Graeme Seabrook who in this episode’s dedication shares about the impact that Lex had on helping her your voice and impact grow.   What’s happening for Graeme is what Lex calls Stepping into Your Moxie. She says when you step into your moxie, it means that you have the ability to walk into any room or onto any stage and speak up for yourself and the ideas and issues that matter most to you and you know that when you use your voice, you move people to take action with what you have said. In this episode, Lex gives us so much Stepping Into Our Moxie wisdom by generously sharing stories from her E.P.I.C. life... from speaking the truth about her sexual abuse as a young child, to the ways she helps her young daughter find her voice, from the spark moment that helped her realize her calling as a speaker coach to the ways she has given herself permission to feel her feelings again and again, especially as she faces a current health challenge with thyroid cancer.  In addition to the gift of this conversation, Lex is serving as the Mother’s Quest Ambassador in the private Facebook Group this November and leading a free upcoming virtual workshop called “Discover Your Secret Sauce as a Speaker.” I will be tuning into all of this as I follow my commitment to Lex’s challenge for us to think about 1) What one idea more than anything we really want to be known for and 2) How we can start moving into conversations more clearly speaking up for that idea and doing it unapologetically. I hope you’ll join me in Stepping into Our Moxie and Speaking Our Truth. Much appreciation, P.S. Know someone who would love this conversation? Pay this forward to a friend who may be interested.   This Episode is Dedicated by: Graeme Seabrook Graeme Seabrook is a maternal mental health expert, advocate, and community leader who helps moms remove their capes and reconnect with their whole selves. As a certified life coach and founder of The Mom Center, an online community exclusively for moms, she has coached over 2,000 mothers on how to place their names at the top of their priority list, without guilt or shame. Described as radical, honest, and uplifting, her approach to this work includes a methodology that sits at the intersection of capitalism, patriarchy, and self-care.

Her goal is to put moms in the spotlight and celebrate them for their courage to stand boldly in the truth of who they are - as whole human mamas. www.graemeseabrook.com www.themomcenter.mn.co www.graemeseabrook.com Graeme's Episode on the Mother's Quest Podcast:  Ep 61: Reclaiming Ourselves in Motherhood: Revisited with Graeme Seabrook   In This Episode We Talk About: Full transparency: what happened the first time Lex and I sat down for an interview and why I asked if we could re-record  Teaching our children to find their voices from a young age and how Lex’s mother helped Lex find the words to share about her sexual abuse at the age of four.  Lex’s moments of “speaking bliss” throughout her life and what distinguished them How Lex spoke her truth at an Entrepreneurial Competition where not a single women speaker was awarded and how that became a spark for her career as a women’s speaker coach The ways that Lex uses inquiry and growth vs. fixed mindset and the innovator’s mindset to help her daughter connect to her voice and impact Lex’s signature Speaker Spotlight Accelerator program, and how it helped me reconnect to my voice during the beginning of the pandemic How Lex sees using our voices not as an opportunity but a responsibility Lex’s health challenge with thyroid cancer and how it is causing her to make new meaning in her life  Some people nurture their own dreams in their children and the importance of doing this for ourselves  Giving permission to feel our feelings and how we can reframe and use our “sensations” to become more powerful speakers Where Lex finds community among the cohorts of women she coaches and the gift of showing up to serve other people This Episode's Challenge: Think about what one idea more than anything we really want to be known for and... How we can start moving into conversations more clearly speaking up for that idea and doing it unapologetically.

Infidelity - Overcome the Devastation, with special guest host Alexia Vernon

FLAUNT! Find Your Sparkle & Create a Life You Love After Infidelity or Betrayal

25-70% of Americans have had an extramarital affair. And the reason that infidelity statistics are so difficult to get a handle on, is because the data is gathered from self-reported surveys, and most people don’t admit engaging in infidelity. Because it’s taboo. Because it’s scary to think it could happen to us. There is a lot of misunderstanding and judgment around those who are unfaithful, the betrayed partner, what happens in a relationship after the affair (or affairs) have ended, and how to healthily go forward. To make matters worse, pop culture’s version of what it’s like to have, or be the victim of, an affair is shockingly incorrect, meaning that well-meaning friends or family sometime only make matters worse – not better. In addition, there are surprisingly few quality resources out there for a problem that, while very complex, is exceedingly common. The devastation of my infidelity experience was beyond what I thought I could endure. It is not something I will ever get over, nor will a day ever go by where I don’t think about its impact on me, my children, family and friends and be consumed – at least for a moment – by the crushing pain. But the woman I have become throughout this journey is not someone I would trade for all the world. Affairs happen for many different reasons, across all social-economic classes, all religious backgrounds, all political affiliations, and all cultures. Chances are very good that if you have not yet been touched by infidelity, you will be. It is my wish to be a beacon of compassion, to open up difficult conversations around infidelity and its impact on everyone, not just those who are involved. My wish for you, is that no matter what happens, or has happened in your life, that you will be able to untangle yourself and your worth from the actions and choices of others. That you can find peace and understanding in all situations, and even though something is unfair or unjust, you will know deep inside, that who you are, right now, is more than enough.
