An international speaker expert Dr. Cheryl Wood sits down with me Naketa Ren Thigpen as we talk about her multifaceted self with her personal development journey and profession.
She shares how she moved from being a legal assistant confined in a cubicle for 15 years to a motivational speaker traveling the world to inspire people.
Listen in to hear how Dr. Cheryl overcame impostor syndrome that was limiting her from performing to the highest potential as a speaker. You will also learn why you should not allow your business to stagnate in a place of scarcity but rather it should take care of you like you once took care of it.
“You have to allow people to run their own race at their own pace.”- Dr. Cheryl Wood [24:49]
What you will learn:
•When did she start speaking and whom does she speak to?
•She explains why her story of coming from poverty and a demotivating job gave her the urge to dig deep and share it with other people.
•How to overcome the impostor syndrome and believe that you’re worthy and belong where God intended for you to be.
•How sharing your lessons and experiences makes your story powerful.
•How to handle things with your partner when you’re taking on an unconventional career like speaking.
•Why you shouldn’t stay at a place of scarcity with your business.
•The importance of your business coming out of a tipping point to a turning point- where it takes care of yours the same way you took care of it in the beginning.
•How Dr. Cheryl has learned to listen to her body as a way to give herself permission to pause.
