The Business of Funny with David Nihill

Public speaking is one of the top fears, if not the number one fear most people face. In more severe cases it can cause people to avoid situations that might help them move their careers forward. David Nihill wants to help us all get over this fear and become better public speakers and storytellers. He was born in Dublin (and claims no one here in the U.S. understands his accent!). He earned a Masters in Business and began working with the Irish government to help startups. He’s been working with startups ever since, though now it’s through his FunnyBizz Conference series where he uses a comedic approach to help content creators leverage the power of storytelling, comedy, and improv!

Mindset Matters with Crystal Batya Marsh

Are you being paid what you’re worth? Raise your hand if you’re not. Join the club, right? Wrong. Chances are you don’t realize how you’ve been sabotaging yourself. Crystal Marsh says it’s all about mindset. She unofficially played the part of “life coach” to friends and family for most of her life. As a lawyer she once talked a divorce client out of getting a divorce! She says she may have “talked her way out of a client, but into [her] purpose” in that moment. Clearly, the coach in her was as strong as the logic-minded, rational attorney! Crystal talks to us about the power of understanding your worth and then making that visible. She walks us through her super-charged interviewing process and impressive salary negotiation techniques!
