Speaker Spotlight: Damita McGhee October 24, 2017 09:00
Our Speaker Spotlight series puts the focus on speakers in our community. Iron sharpens iron, and we can all learn from the experiences of others. We asked questions and our speakers answered them. These answers come from Damita McGhee.
Who do you most like to speak to? Tell us about your ideal audience.
I love speaking to women who are ready to begin their entrepreneurial journey from their home office. It’s fun when they are full of excitement and trepidation.
It’s something so inspirational about the woman who balances her business and her household.
What are your favorite topics to talk about or teach?
1. Expanding your vision
2. Balancing building a brand, business and babies
3 Trusting your gut
4. The Sweet Spot-Where your passion and purpose intersect
What sets you apart from other speakers? What do your audiences love about you?
I am so relatable and honest. I realize a lot of people have passion. However, talking from a passionate position is an integral part of my speaking style.
I want women to feel better after they have left my presence than they did before we met. It’s imperative to me that I inspire women to be the best version of themselves possible.
What does your dream speaking engagement look like? Describe it here.
A room (whether 5, 50, 500 or 5000) full of women who are ready to take their businesses to the next level. They understand that personal development is part of the growth process and they invest in themselves. They are ready to live outside of their comfort zones.
The room is full of positive, passionate women ready to walk in their full potential.
Bloopers happen to everyone. Tell us about one that happened to you. How did you handle it?
Yes they do.
The most recent was just last week. I have a weekly online TV show. Unfortunately, I just could not get Facebook Live to work for me. My guest was waiting to join but I just couldn’t navigate my phone properly. And this was after I tried BeLive.tv and Zoom webinar. Ultimately, my guest had to go Live and invite me on.
How do you control your nerves during a speaking engagement?
Just breathe through it. I take the focus off of me and think about the people in the audience who need the message. In my mind, God connected us for a reason.
What's the best advice you've ever gotten regarding public speaking?
Carrie told me something very powerful. I can’t remember it exactly but it had to do with progress over perfection.
What do you hope to accomplish with your speaking in the next 10 years?
I pray I impact millions of women across the world. We share something universal. We love our families and have a God given purpose. It is my sincere desire to help women connect the two.
God designed each of us to accomplish what we alone are meant to contribute to this world. It is our destiny. I will help women realize that.
