Immediately after winning a pageant, you are often swept up into the very next; thing whether that is a media appearance, or a press conference, or maybe it's just to the gala or a coronation ball.   Oftentimes you’re swept into the very next thing and you might find that it is difficult to dig for all the essentials that you might need. And oftentimes somebody else is backstage packing up all of the things that you had to compete with. You might not even know where your essentials are.   Just like if you were going to pack a bag in your home, which I recommend for everybody. Just a side note here,

  • 182: Pageant Fun Fact ( How to Choose Without Being Weird )

    30/03/2022 Duración: 06min

    In this episode, I want to talk about a question you’ll be asked either in an interview setting or in your pageant paperwork, and this is: what is a fun or interesting fact about you. This may seem simple, but it can actually be pretty overwhelming.   Most times you want to use some interesting, weird thing. Like “I can touch my nose with my tongue. Or “I have a double jointed elbow.” Or “I was born with a unicorn horn.” But these things are a bit crazy!   The thing that you want to use as your measurement for whether this is a good fun fact or not is: if this is the only thing that they remember, will it be fun and enjoyable and will they think fondly of me. OR will it be a little bit embarrassing? If the only thing that your judges remember about you is that you can touch your nose with your tongue, or that you have crazy elbows, it’s going to get weird.   Instead, what we want to do is one of two things. First of all, we don't want to make it weird. But we do want to make it fun and interesting. Now let's

  • ​180: Confidence in the Face of Pageant Critics

    16/03/2022 Duración: 09min

    Today I want to give you two very specific strategies that can help maintain your confidence about competing in a pageant even when you've got naysayers and chase the dream that God has given you.   Strategy Number 1: This strategy is called “Re-framing” you may have heard of this before. It's very common in self-help and self-development to reframe something is to basically look at it in a different way.   What I want you to consider is reframing your pageant competition. Though you're running for a title that will represent your community, or state, or nation, I want you to reframe it as: instead of telling people that you are competing in a pageant, imagine what would change if you told them that you were running for public office. Right? If you told your boss or barista or your second cousin those types of things now instead of them being flooded with their uneducated stereotypes about pageantry, they will instead be flooded with their uneducated stereotypes about the political office.    Here are some si

  • 179: Why You're Losing Your Pageant (and what to do about it)

    09/03/2022 Duración: 11min

    In this episode, I'm going to walk you through five real reasons that women lose pageants and I'm going to give you some specific guidelines on what you can do about it. We’re going to start broad and work out way to the more common reasons.   The most common reason women lose their pageant is they simply don’t have ‘the look’, mostly because they haven't discovered what this pageant is looking for as the main spokesperson for their pageant. In order to win, you have to show up with your complete marketing package. The next somewhat obvious reason that you may be losing your pageant is you are too stiff – like a robot, or ‘pageant patty.’ This often comes off as either not having enough practice or having too much practice. There are lots of ways to fix this problem, but the main one is: practice with real life experience!   The third reason you may be losing your pageant is what I call a ‘failure to thrive.’ This means that you haven’t really done all that much to achieve your goals since the last time you
