Making money, stumbling into entrepreneurship and projector life with Melanie Levenberg
That Does Not Belong to Me
In this episode, I talk to Melanie Levenberg from Impact Entrepreneurs. Mel is a projector with an emotional authority who has used the guidance of human design to positively impact her work, relationships, and basically all areas of this life. Mel is a lover of movement, a teacher at heart, and a huge supporter of guiding humans to make money from their passion. While she may live as a manifesting-generator by having her hands in a few different pots, she has managed to embrace her role as a leader in helping so many others find success. I am so grateful that Mel came into my life a couple of years ago when we were in the same mastermind for female entrepreneurs. And now I get to be a co-leader with her in the School of Human Design. She has been one of my biggest expanders and has had a huge impact on my life. Which is why I'm so thrilled you all get to meet her!

Episode 41 - Being Playful with Public Speaking: Interview with Melanie Levenberg
Master Your Stutter
In this episode, I interview Melanie Levenberg. Melanie is the Co-Founder of Impact Entrepreneurs & CEO of PL3Y Inc. She is also an international speaker and TEDx presenter. Melanie helps entrepreneurs grow their businesses with purpose. What we discuss in this episode: Turning fear into excitement Being an outgoing person, she did not have any problems talking to 30 people at once. However, the notion of being on stage brought fear into Melanie‘s head. It was way beyond her comfort zone. It made her become a version of herself that she didn’t recognize, she experienced behaviors like nervousness and fear. Telling her story became so serious that she no longer found it fun. Melanie wondered how she can turn something serious into fun. Having Play in your life allows us to turn into better versions of ourselves, as we are more creative and connected. So Play was a rediscovery. Play is for anything that had been turned into something serious. Every human has a different way to express some joy or spark that they get that makes them feel more alive when they have some sort of Play in their life. For some people, this may be like sudoku, or being witty or sarcastic. It doesn’t have to be the traditional definition of play, therefore, there are so many different ways we can play. Shifting the energy of an entire room People tend to zone out when they watch someone on stage pass a 20-minute mark. So when speeches sometimes go a little bit longer even to an hour, there needs to be some sort of multimedia resource provided, for example, a presentation. So Melanie wanted to coach the audience into meeting with her. Melanie‘s purpose when it came to being on that stage, it was not for her, it was for the audience. That TEDx stage was the biggest she had been on, not in the sense of the number of people but in the sense of how significant it was. Usually, TEDTalks have the spotlight on the person speaking, and it is so bright that you can’t even see the audience. However, Melanie had them switch the spotlight from her and then to the audience so they could be in the spotlight as well. A huge part of public speaking is how you make the audience feel Melanie uses play in every aspect of her life. Whenever she feels energized as well as when she feels stressed. So, one of the moves that Melanie really likes is to shake a lot. Shaking your body is a great way to release stress. Think about it, a dog that jumps into water comes out and shakes its whole body in order to take the water off. Or if a gazelle is being chased by a lion and the gazelle gets away, The gazelle is just going to shake it off because it shakes off any tension. So if Melanie is in a situation that may be perceived as stressful, she literally likes to shake it off. There’s an element of fun and playfulness, and most importantly there is an energy shift. The state you are in, that’s how your audience perceives you. So you have to make sure that your energy levels are always high. You can have the most powerful, impactful message to deliver but if you’re not fully present in that situation, it’s not going to have the same effect as if you were 100% present. In other words, when you shake off the tension, at the same time you are gaining confidence. Grab a pen and a notebook & enjoy the show! Hit me up on Instagram: @CEODanielFrancis
