We're gonna be starting in one minute.

We'll be starting in one minute.

I was muted. I'm having technical difficulties.

Welcome to why and that's live here live on Fireside. This is your next stop live. If you guys are familiar

with what I do here, I am a storytelling

consultant. I also have a number of shows here on Fireside.

Your next stop live is one, and then I also have my series with the Nfl, which is

y live with Nfl thread. We also have y live with Nfl thread pivot. You guys can catch one of our shows. This... I think it's at the twenty second, whether that's Wednesday or Thursday,

I think it's Thursday.

You know, this week going into the holidays. So I don't know if anyone else is a little k, but I'm definitely Co, but we are we... We have crystal Scott, who her and her husband were on together.

And probably over a month ago. And since then, ian was drafted

as a coach to Carolinas I don't think they say drafted, but transferred as a coach to Caroline. So we're gonna get the whole scoop on how they did that because

that is a really, really fun one. So whether you guys are here live on Fireside, Hi, James, Jessica,

Valerie, and Trinity,

or you're listening to the replay

or you're on Linkedin. I don't actually think my Linkedin is working, but if you're on Youtube live or any of the other lives, hello hello. Hello. So I'm excited to be here with you guys today.

If you have caught any of the other series, I've been doing a three part series on storytelling.

A lot of people don't realize I know I'm a podcast host, but I'm also a

storytelling consultant, and I help people get their stories out there. Thinking about the parts of of their story they're important because a lot of people

know how to kind of talk about themselves ish but they don't know about the pieces that are actually really important that their audience might be a little bit more connected to them if they talk about it. So stories connect us that's what I love so much about what I do. I love hearing people's story. So I'm gonna give you guys it's gonna be a short show today. I'm just gonna give you guys some tips to take away when you're thinking about, especially if you are on the podcast circuit.

If you are a small business


if you are even in the business world, you're influence or whatever you are, it's really important that you know how to tell your story to connect deeper with people. You don't know what's gonna come about if you connect a little deeper with someone, if you're networking and you're trying to, you know, get up the

the corporate ladder, if you're a podcast

host or guess,

and you have a small business or, again, you're an entrepreneur and you're trying to get your product or your business out there being able to share your story is more important. Than actually, what you do as a business. I really truly believe that because when you share your story in a way that people are gonna learn a little bit more about you, and get a little bit more excited. It is... It's important. So that is what I do.

I love what I do, again, because I love hearing people stories. So a couple different things to think about. If you are on the media circuit or you're on the podcast circuit, there's different increments might be on a media like a little morning show, fifteen minutes. You might be on a segment where you're only on for ten minutes or you're in a podcast for thirty minutes, versus an hour. It's important to kind of figure out what parts of your story really stand out and make you unique. So if any of you guys know my story

part of who I am is that I am like. And so that I played two sports in college, and that's what got me into college is the my lattice.


me just telling you a little bit about that. If you know anything about dyslexia, you know that I failed so many times in my life. I don't care about failing. I don't even think about failing. I have no

qualms about feeling. I actually know what I'm doing something that's a little maybe out of my comfort zone. I'm probably gonna fail but I'm also probably gonna learn something really amazing.

Starting business starting podcast.

I didn't... I never even think twice about it. I don't care about rejection and all of that because I had it so much as a kid growing up.

If you know anything about playing sports, especially two sports in college, you know that I'm dedicated. I'm hardworking working.

I'm competitive.


those kind of things just give you a little bit more a little window into who I am without me telling

anymore, you kinda get a little sense of who I am.

If you know that I worked in New York City, I got a job even before, I graduated

because I knew that's where I wanna be, again, determined

someone that loves energy. You know, you can feel that with me right now, but energy being in it like the city, just figuring it out myself.

Those are all kind of things when you talk about your story.

One thing that's important that people miss,

I've had so many guests on my podcast

touch on, you know, oh, there's this.

We we don't need to talk about the. Or we could talk about it later. I feel a little energy rise, and I feel a little

spark, and I know that that's something I have to talk about I know that's gonna lead into a beautiful conversation.

So when you are sharing your story even if you're practicing and doing it, and you feel that you get more excited when you're talking about something just like I'm doing right now, when I talk about storytelling,

you know that that's something that you should speak about. If it's something that you can talk about for hours,

you know, that something that you need to add into your story. Now not everyone knows how to get that into their story. Again, that is what I help in teach and that's why what I wanna give you guys a little tips here so you can take away.


I'm gonna give you, like, two things, three things that are really important. When you are starting to go on the circuits and share your story,

Know the audience you're speaking to. Okay. That is so important. Say you're a small business, say you're, like, a financial small business, and you're going on a podcast about finance.

You're gonna lead with your


part of your story.

Now you're that small business

and your finance.

But you're going on a podcast

that's about more about personal journals and connection and conversation.

You're really not gonna be talking about the finance part. You're gonna be talking about why you love finance.

What in your life

got you in the spot where you are because of your backstory. So it could be something as simple as

you were in middle school.

You took a class


in math

and the teacher,

was just so dynamic and connected so much with you because

the way they taught, and the way you learned, you never really thought you were gonna until this one teacher came into your life and really taught you how to do it or it could be when you were a kid and used to play legos, You always were fascinated needed.

Not with the building of the legos, but how many legos were in a box, and you just always were fascinated anything with numbers and by a really early age because you found that, or

you were in high school and you in math. You knew, you loved Math. You knew you're gonna math, but you didn't know anything you know, where you could go. And there was a kid that really wasn't good and math, and they were your friend or they, you know, or weren't doesn't matter.

But you were asked to help them. And you started helping them and you fell in love

with helping someone

with their math, and that's how your business became evolved later in life when you never realized, those little things are really important. So knowing your audience that you're talking to, if you're on the business podcast, you're gonna lead a little bit more with the business because that's what the audience wants to hear.

If you're on, but you still had your personal part. You still can talk about

how you fell in love with the math but it's gonna be more heavy on the business. You know, how you found the later half. If you're on a podcast, it's more about personal jurors and conversations.

It's gonna be more about heavy on your beginning of your life

versus the end of your life. And it's so it's really important to know that if you're on the media circuit theme, who is your audience. If you have fifteen minutes, how are you gonna take that fifteen minutes? And, again, it can be just a snippet. I fell in love with math because I was helping this, you know, this person

that was really, really struggling, and that's where I learned, and that's where my company became

what it became because I went to school for you know, for finance, but then this entrepreneur side of me, and and and there's a little parts that you're just gonna add in there and do that, But you're gonna feel more connected. Audience is gonna feel more connected. Because they hear your passion and they hear how excited you are

about your story. If you guys have any questions, please feel free. You know the little reaction sign over here. You can you can ask over here.

I'm happy to do that. I'm just checking if There's any

questions here. Okay. So other thing is

with that audience. Right? You're gonna you're gonna think, okay. I have fifteen minutes.

I need to kind of figure out the parts of my story

that are important, but it goes again

with the audience and how to do it. So and it's it's kinda seems like it's simple. It's not simple. It's not easy to do. But if you know who you're speaking to,

you know what excites you in your story so you know that that's gonna connect when can someone's talking about their story and they get excited?

Think about when you've if if you're getting, if you're on the podcast circuit, if you're in the media or if you love listening to stories and someone's talking about their story,

and it's maybe a part that they're, like, a little Yeah. And I went to, you know, I went to college. I played two sports.

I studied communications. That was fun. You know, I... You know, then went into New York.

To follow my my dream to be an advertising

then I met my husband,

then I started my podcast.

And raised three kids as I was creating this podcast.


I I just love stories. I love talking you to people, and I realized from an early age

because of my dyslexia,

because school was hard that if I spoke to my teachers, they listened different. So I really honed in on my communication skills. Okay. Did you see what I did there in the beginning?

And I know it's a little bit more dramatic, but I want you guys to get the sense in the beginning.

I was a little flat. This is a little bit about my story, but It was a little flat. But then when we started talking about that storytelling, you could feel posture... You know, perk up. I started really getting excited.

So, again, you're gonna practice

your story, whether you work with a consultant like myself whether you're doing it

you know, through the podcast circuit, whether you're doing it yourself, and you're telling your story whether you're talking to your husband and a friend, someone to practice on because it is really important. Which is so annoying, but practice is important because you wanna be able to get as

comfortable in those story realm. So just same example, what I do with my clients

is I basically run a

kind of podcast with them,

and we do it. Sometimes it's once weeks twice a week, Depends how the person learns. But when I am listening to their story, I'll give them

tips afterwards. Okay. I really want you to focus on this. I loved this part, and I think it's important.

I want you to kinda downplay that. It's it's cool, but it's really...

You weren't excited about it, and it kinda just... You got lost in your words there.

And the reason why I'm telling you this is because it's about the practice part, and then we record it, so then they can go practice back. Then the next time. I'm like, okay. This is the audience you're gonna be speaking too. Right? So then they they're talking to that audience and we pick out the parts of their story that are important for that audience.

And the next time then they practice that they bring it in. Then we do that audience in different segments. So it's like, okay, You're on a twenty minute podcast. Let's get it about. You're on a thirty to forty minute.

Let's get it out. You're on an hour ten an hour and a half podcast.

Let's get it out because the hard thing is to shorten and a long gate, But, again, when you're practicing so much and you know your story,

it's not it's gonna be kind of, like, okay. I got it. This is the audience. I'm speaking to. This is my product. This is my brand. Because that's the other thing if you have a brand, it's still the same thing. You're talking to an audience

and an audience to get your brand out. You could be talking to number it could be personal journal. It can be education. It could be fitness. It really depends on what it is. But, you know,

whatever that audience is, that's what you have to lead. So that is like your number one tip is knowing that audience

and knowing what you need to lead with. The number two tip is to really

figure out the part that you get excited about, And that's just gonna take practice. So it's gonna take practice about, like, okay.

I Am excited about that. If you're kind of like, okay, There's so many things I'm excited about. Think about the thing that you can talk about for hours.

Okay. Like, days and hours. I'm excited about a lot of stuff. I'm an accessible person.


there is no joke or a question about that. I am an excited person.

So I have a lot and people that's what people able will say. Like, you have... How many passions do not? I love people that know me. I love boxers.

I love, you know, dog rescue and all that stuff.

I can talk about that for a long time, but I can't talk about it for days and days and days. It makes me a little sad because I wanna save every single animal. So that is a passion of mine, but I know my limits there.

I could talk about education

what's wrong with education, especially for dislikes people. I could talk about that for days. I get angry.

Really angry. And I know there's only some things that I can do to change

that in the education world. So, again, I know my limits on that, and I... It's it's not my

I do help. I help, you know, my own kid. That's just like. I help be advocate. Advocate for him. He's an advocate for himself. But so I can talk a lot about that,

but I could literally talking about storytelling and people

and how people connect and stories connect us. I could talk about that. For days and days and days, and I don't think there's any limit on that.

So knowing those things,

what your limits are with your conversation, know how excited and if you can talk about it a number of times, that's the other thing. So that's really like tips say think about those things. That excite you. Can you really talk about them time and time and time and time again? So if you're on the media circuit, the podcast circuit, if you're an author, whatever it is,

if you start getting bored of your own story, the audience is getting bored of your own story. So you need to really hone in on the things.

That your your goals are your dreams are and the things that excite you.

Does anyone in the audience have any questions?

I know I repeated myself a number of times, but I did the

On purpose, so it can kind of get in there because I know a lot of times,

we don't

You know, we listen, but we don't hear. It's the other thing I talk about listening and hearing. If you're a podcast


you need to really,

watch the cues of your guest,

where they get excited. Those are the questions you wanna ask. Don't have all your questions kind of


There and be like, oh, no. I'm gonna skip over that. And I'm gonna, you know, not go to that next question and go to this question because this is it no if someone's gonna excited about something. Talk about that because that's gonna be the conversation is where it's gonna be and where it leads you.

Okay. So I'm gonna repeat that again then I've been doing podcast tips on social media. If you guys wanna go check me out on ig,

I am Juliet Han.

You can also go to my website. I am Julia Han dot come.

And little little funny. The reason why I am Julian Is because there's is a professor. I think she's at the citadel, and her name is Julia Han. And she's older of the me. So she took all the stuff

before I could ever ever do it.

So, again, tips here for you guys to keep and then really think about

you need to know who your audience is. You need to know who you are talking to.

You also then need to figure out the parts of your story

that you could talk about forever. Right And you need to practice those.

So if you're on a podcast,

that's a twenty minute versus a thirty minute. That's a forty minute. You know that those things you're excited about. You're gonna really lead with those

and bring those to force. You're gonna have, like, the beginning of the way you always talk about your podcast.

You're gonna do that.

For all of them, and then it's gonna segue. And and, of course, when you have a host, they're gonna kinda segue too. But when you practice your story so much, you're gonna know about those things.

If you start getting bored of your own story, you need to change things up whether it's practicing with someone else That's a professional that can help you a little bit. Or really practicing with a family member, You need to do that because of the audience, if you're a bored with yourself, the audience is gonna be bored.

Couple tips that I've been giving. Again, if you guys have any questions, please.

You can also email me at info at I am joy dot com.

Another thing

And I've given these tips out again on social media, couple different parts. If you have long hair and you're wearing

I don't have a microphone on here because I use this microphone, obviously, but if you have one of these with with the microphone,

makes sure your hair is not there, scratching. Your a guest on a podcast, even if you're a host or make sure it's not here, rubbing on your side. It's the worst thing. It's so distracting

when you are a host, and your guest has that or if you're a host and your

feedback coming be back, your editor not gonna be happy with that. So that's one tip. The other thing is if you fidget, if you're going like this all the time,

your audio not gonna be great, and it's gonna frustrate the listeners, and it's also gonna frustrate your

Editor if you have one or frustrated yourself, other thing. So I guess this is my third tip.

Have something under the table. I use these little shells. I get them at the beach. They're like, my favorite little pieces, and I literally just rub them. I just sent under the table. And I read them that keeps me still, but also stimulates my brain.

I am deflect. I all over the place, but when I am doing my podcast and when I'm talking to people, I'm very focused because I know what I'm speaking about. Because I'm centered my brain. So that's a really important thing. It doesn't matter what kind of night sleep I had. What kind of day I had if I have these under the table, I'm I'm pretty pretty focused the other thing is it's like a little clip. Sometimes I like, just fiddle with that, but something that you can fidget with. That's not loud. Don't do be doing that stuff.


If you get dry mouth

when you're nervous, especially,

make sure you have something that you can take a sip of

but I did this one yesterday.

Don't show if I have a glass here,

Don't do that,

especially if you're a guest on a podcast, it's madden

So I have like, a pad of sticky notes here, where you can do a paper or a wash cough. You take a sip

and let me put it down, and you can't hear it. It's... The guest will appreciate if you need to. And then, you know, you can mute yourself as well. So you don't

disturb. But when you have a a dry mouth, you can hear it in the audio, especially if you're using a microphone,

and it's not the best... It's not the best sound.

Let's just be fine.

Alright. Thank you guys so much for joining

your next step live here on Fireside.

If you have any questions or if you want me to go over anything again, how to tell your story in different increments, fifteen minutes versus an hour, gonna go over really quickly again, know your audience,

know the things in your story that are acceptable, and that make you excited. So your audience is gonna connect just few more. Stories connect us. It can be just a little thing

just to give you an example, I had a guest on, and she

talked about pink peo, but she just said, oh, there's a flower. You know, I I can talk about that in a second, but I could see that there was something there. So I asked about. And this beautiful conversation came out of these pink peo.

And she was like, oh I went even have fall that And I'm like, rights because you didn't think it was an important part of the story. However it was because my

podcast is personal journal stories. It's education. It's about passion, and I could feel the excitement and the connection and they knew my audience of gonna connect with her more. So those kind of things are really important and not everyone does. For more tips about podcasting, please go follow. I am Juliet at Han. Really on any of the social I'm not great on Tic tac, but I do try to put some stuff up. There's some shorts on Youtube. My live stuff goes out on Youtube as well here live on Fireside.
