She is a speaker, coach, and author of Speak: Love Your Story, Your Audience is Waiting. With over 35-years of experience in the television industry as the former audience producer for The Oprah Winfrey Show, Sally Lou has entertained and engaged over half a million people before starting her journey as an entrepreneur and speaker.

Sally Lou joins me today to share why she is rebelling for people to stand up for who they are by sharing their stories and building connections with others. She discusses the power of sharing our own stories with the world and what it means to be in your purpose. She shares tips on how to warm up your audience and how to better engage with them, whether you’re speaking on stages, speaking with your team and colleagues, or speaking with your family and community. She explains what it means to show up as if every day is a ‘show day’ and the lessons she has learned while working with Oprah. Sally Lou also shares her perspective on rejection, why she believes women should create their own platform and content when faced with repeated rejection, and what inspired her to begin her adventure in stand-up comedy.

“It’s like our superpower. It’s gold. We all sit on a pot of gold - which is our story - and when we speak our story, we help others.“ - Sally Lou Loveman
