ince our inception, businesses have been attracted to Big Media USA because of the assistance we provide in helping them hone their message. The production of a podcast is a key part of what we do, by helping a business, individual, or non-profit focus their message; who is the best person to deliver it and where to place the message is the magic. The good news is that the internet has made it easy for people to shop for products and services. The bad news is that it has also made it harder for businesses and sole practitioners to differentiate themselves from their competitors. How do you stack up against your competitors? If a potential client/customer looks at my online presence vs. my competitors, do I win? Everyone has a website; no matter how nice it is in today’s fast-moving world, a website alone simply isn’t enough. Big Media USA’s Digital Marketing Package is designed to improve your online image and more. Third-party content is valuable and adds credibility to you and your image. The First Pillar of our program is a podcast that is housed on the Big Media USA Platform and pushed out to all the other major online partner platforms. Why is the Podcast interview important? You are the best one to tell your story, things like how you got into the business put in your own words; will show your passion and knowledge. People can make a decision that they want to work with you because of important factors, your sincerity, approachability, compassion, and desire to provide a great product or service. Why do I need an article in INformed People Magazine? The 2nd Pillar An article can dive deeper into who you are and what you do. You prepare it so it can highlight your philosophy, family or associates, and company. The article can be geared to sell products or services and is linked to your podcast. Why do I need to be “In the News”? The 3rd Pillar Remember the potential client/customer is looking at your side by side with your competitor and trying to decide whom to choose. Just imagine how impressive all the professionally produced media can be to your client/customer in a well-thought-out and prepared format. Why Do I Need It? Bonus: : by producing quality content you help your Search Engine Optimization and this makes it easier to be found!

1. Your life, business, career, relationship, etc., is already good, but you want it to be much, much better. Coaching isn't a crisis intervention. Nor is it a substitute for psychotherapy, or advice from a professional such as an attorney, accountant, physician, etc. If things are basically good, but you know they could be a lot better and you're ready for that to happen, that's a great time for you to hire a coach. 2. You want YOU to be much, much better. Just because most things are going well, doesn't mean you don't want to improve them and that includes yourself. Many people hire a coach because they know they are built for more and they want to reach their full potential sooner, rather than later. This is different from being insecure. People derive considerable joy from stepping into their personal greatness. In fact, some people believe this is the single biggest source of happiness. Great coaches are experts at eliciting their clients' personal greatness. 3. You're going through a big transition. Change can be difficult, even when it's what you want. Anytime you go through a big transition such as starting a new business or career, getting divorced, moving to a new city, going back to school, etc.; it's a great time to have someone who believes in you and who can help you make the most crucial choices as smoothly as possible. A good coach won't take you on unless they truly believe in you. 4.
You're a high achiever. This is the type of client I prefer to work with. High achievers tend to be driven and good at success, but they don't always create the success they really want. If you're ever wondered, "Is this all there is?", or "How did I get myself into this and how do I get out?", you could really benefit from working with a great coach. Everybody has a few blind spots. In fact, neuroscientists say we are unconscious of 95% of what goes on in our brains. Think about that! A good coach can see you as you are, without judgment, and help you be your best and achieve what you're built to do.
1. You want to make more money. It might seem crass to bring up money right after talking about meaning, values, high standards and good friends, but let's face it, a great life or career usually includes enough money, sometimes lots of it. Many people hire coaches when they want to upgrade their careers or launch a new business. The funny thing is that values, high standards, good relationships, etc., tend to make people more successful in many areas, including finances. One thing a great coach can do is help you get over any internal blocks (we're back to that unconscious 95%) you may have about making plenty of money. In fact, eliminating all sorts of internal blocks is one of the ways good coaches help their clients enjoy success of all kinds. 2. You're willing to invest in yourself. This is about so much more than money. Are you prepared to take the time, effort, risk and yes, money, in order to have the life or business of your dreams? Or are you satisfied playing small? Are you ready to stop talking about your dreams and start living them? If you had the right coach in your corner, would you have the courage to step into your greatness? Only you can answer that. 3. You're a coach. If there's one profession where you really do need a coach most, it's coaching, itself. Although coaching is still one of the fastest growing careers, success with coaching is definitely not a slam dunk. Every successful coach I've ever known has had his/her own coaches, usually several. It helps us keep growing and stay out ahead of our clients. And it's an integrity issue for us; we can't expect people to hire us, when we're not willing to hire our own coaches. That's one reason I offer a coach training, plus mentor coaching package for coaches who are high achievers.

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.
The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn and he names the sky his own But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom. -

from the earth. We are all born with a gift; some may have more than one, but we all have a gift that is unique to us and to us only. All have gifts and many persons may never seek to know their gift nor are they aware that they even have one. Most people will spend their whole life never knowing their worth (value,) they will only operate from their skills and not their gifts. As long as you are working from your skills others will determine what your worth is. Your skills are what you have been trained to do, for instance, your education level, your choice of study, or on-the-job training technical skills. Yes, in some cases your skill can also be your gift however your skill is your job, where your gift is your work. For your gift, you go to bed thinking about it, wake up thinking about it, and excited to do it. Your gift is your worth. It will bring you peace, fulfillment, and wealth while at the same time helping others. Your gift will always be involved in helping others. When you operate from your skills there is a limit on your value and others can tell you what you are worth because they can always train others to do your skill. No one else will ever be able to train for your gift as it is GOD-given and only for you. Others can try to imitate it, but they cannot have it, it will only be a counterfeit. You have the original. Your gift is priceless no one can be trained for it. Now is the time to get to know your purpose, know your strength. Don’t chase success or money. Know your gift and money will chase you; be unique this is what makes you valuable. Always do more than what is required of you. When you find or determine what your worth is, stand boldly not arrogantly, be unmovable.
