One day in the 1980s, Martha Johnson was concluding a three-day training of sales professionals when she asked the pivotal question that would forever change the direction of her work. She made the bold move to ask her audience if they were planning to implement what she had just taught them. Not a single person raised their hand. How Martha responded to this shocking truth is what makes her a true pioneer and gifted trainer. In this episode, you’ll learn the five steps of Martha’s trademark “Willingness Check” that will help you to uncover what may be stopping you from taking action and accomplishing your biggest goals. If you dream of booking reoccurring $5,000+ speaking gigs (but aren’t), want to speak in front of audiences of 1,000+ (but haven’t yet), or see yourself becoming a leader in your field (but feel stuck at “unknown”), you are going to love this episode. Grab a pen and get ready for an interactive episode that will have you thinking deeply about why YOU might be unwilling to go after what you most want.
