TNW30: How a Dog Can Change Your Life with Gila Kurtz of Dog is Good

TNW30: How a Dog Can Change Your Life with Gila Kurtz of Dog is Good

In this episode of The Notable Woman, I interview 7 figure entrepreneur, speaker, and dog lover Gila Kurtz.

Gila is a professional dog trainer turned 7 figure business owner turned author turned professional speaker. Actually “turned” isn’t the right word because she is still all of those things. And she loves to read! Could she be any more fabulous!?! I don’t think so. This is a great episode for dog lovers and owners, entrepreneurs, small business owners and anyone who has a passion they would love to turn into a business.
IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • Who Gila is
  • How she started on this journey with Dog Is Good
  • Why she wrote her book and started speaking

TNW24: Scattered but Sparkly with Sasha Gray

TNW24: Scattered but Sparkly with Sasha Gray

Sasha Gray from Scattered Sasha and I have a great conversation about giving grace, especially to ourselves, her accidental business, and how she started her famous live show.

It should be a crime to have as much fun as Sasha Gray and I had recording this episode. We laughed, we cried, we talked everything from weddings to booze (margaritas and whiskey, of course). The conversation’s a blast, and I hope you enjoy it.

Sasha and I met in a Facebook group, and shortly afterward, I was planning my first summit. Carrie Sharpe of He Says, She Says insisted that I have Sasha as a guest, and the rest, as they say, is history. Since then, Sasha has appeared in my summits, as a guest speaker in my group, and even as one of my popular Notable Woman Live! guests.

In this episode, we talk about her accidental business, how she cultivated her tribe (her following), and how she started her live show, and much, much more! I hope you enjoy this episode and don’t forget to join The Society of Notable Women if you want to continue the conversation! And of course, Sasha has a great gift for you! Head on over to get her “Your Journey: 5 Ways to Increase Daily Joy.”

IN THIS EPISODE, WE EXPLORE:

  • Why you can’t take yourself too seriously
  • How Sasha became known as Sasha Gray (spoiler: it’s a pseudonym)
  • How Sasha chose to name her page “Lipstick, Margaritas, and Hairspray” (now Scattered Sasha)
  • How Sasha cultivated such a huge tribe (at the time of this recording, it was 239K now up to 255K)
  • How Sasha started an accidental business
  • The creation of the “unbreakable” token and its impact on people
  • Why we all need to give ourselves grace
  • How Sasha started her show (you can watch it here)
  • Sasha getting married at the racetrack

How to Get Booked to Speak

How to Get Booked to Speak

COACH AND SPEAKER, SONESS STEVENS

The Notable Woman is proud to present the Super U Summit, 30 empowering women speakers over 10 days.

In this amazing Super U Summit Talk, speaker and coach Soness Stevens guides us on “How to Get Booked to Speak!”

WHO’S SONESS?

Soness is a TED & TEDx speaker, weekly NHK TV Communications Navigator, and Associate Professor of business presentation skills. She works with TEDx speakers, techies and introverts to become engaging presenters, both online and on stage. She uses a unique combination of Positive Psychology principles, NLP, education, and entertainment to teach Presentation and Platform Skills at Yokohama National University, based on her book, Show-N-Tell: Presenting from the Heart, the first multi-media textbook used at major universities in Japan. You may have seen her on NHK or Fox TV Japan, or heard her as the official English voice of Hello Kitty.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE TALK TOPIC

I met Soness in one of her classes, Get Booked to Speak in a Week, and I could not believe how great this class was. It was seriously one of the best classes I have ever taken. The material was great and so actionable. And the real win was Soness. She gave us all such individual attention, and she really helped me hone in on my idea of what I wanted to speak about. It’s actually the talk I am going to give tomorrow. (And for the curious, I really did get booked to speak in a week! I think my grand total from the work I did that week was 5 speaking engagements, one I booked that week and four others came from doing the homework in the weeks that followed.)

FREE GIFT FOR YOU

Soness’ free gift for you is her “Road Map to TED.” Get it here.
