Event description

Description

This is part of the Life of Yes℠ Bootcamp series. Current other offerings are “How to Be a Speaker” (which is about everything BUT content) and “Public Speaking 101” (choosing, creating, and sharing content). Have an idea for a Bootcamp you’d like to see? Let Saya know.

You don’t need to be an entrepreneur or business owner or want to be either to attend and benefit from this Bootcamp. If you’re a 9 to 5’er who wants to get more comfortable talking about yourself at work, at events, on a date, come on down!



"Saya, the Bootcamp was amazing! Most other sales workshops I've been to make me feel less confident, discouraged and embarrassed. You really went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and all your information was easy to understand. I walked away feeling inspired ---like I actually have something to offer. Thank you for leaving me with some tools that I can use for my endeavors. I've already started work on 2 websites and I've been networking and getting the word out there. You really lit a fire under my ass!"

Life of Yes℠ Bootcamp: Self Promotion & Sales


Do you revert to “would rather do anything else" mode when
  • You have to write copy about yourself
  • You have to ask someone to spend money on you
  • You have to ask someone to spend time on you
  • You have to market yourself (email, social media, conversation)
  • You have to figure out how to make money off of yourself

Do you fear the moment when
  • Someone asks you how much you charge
  • You submit a quote, immediately wishing you had charged less
  • You see a quote response in your inbox, afraid to open it because you know they won’t pay you what you want
  • Someone asks you what you do
  • Someone asks you what your qualifications are
  • You’re about to enter a “networking” event
  • You make your thoughts, service, or product public
  • People realize you’re a fraud, that you don’t know what you’re doing, and/or you’re not worth the price you’re asking

But have you long wanted to
  • Make (more) money off your business, side-hustle, and/or interests and passions
  • Reach more people
  • Increase authentic connections that propel you forward
  • Feel more confident talking about yourself and engaging in small talk

Saya’s been self-employed since 2004 (after getting fired). Without spending any money on marketing or incurring debt, she found a way to cobble together a career that beautifully, organically, and randomly meshes her skills and interests. She too hates ‘sales’ and ‘networking’ but has found ways to make such necessary-evils not only not evil but enjoyable. She doesn’t hate self-promotion but that’s because she’s “good” at it. She had $300 in savings when she started her business and has no training in anything she does, choosing to DIY and figure it out as she goes. There was no blueprint and instead of that paralyzing Saya, it invigorated her and since Day 1, she’s been harnessing and adapting the magic that is entrepreneurism. She still hasn’t figured it all out and probably never will but she has figured out a variety of things and those things just happen to be sources of terror for many.

Bootcamp will teach you avenues to self-promotion and sales that work with what you already possess. No having to get certified in this or having to attend that. No e-book or fifteen-step program to buy or coach to hire. No waiting or analyzing or running things by others. ______ has been on your To Do List, Bucketlist, Wants List for too long.

The Perfect Time unicorn is a myth; stop waiting for him to appear. Let’s do this now.

Come prepared to be pushed, to be put on the spot, to be in the spotlight. Sound horrible? That means you should register now before your no-good inner-voice talks you out of it. Unless what you’ve been doing is working. Then keep on keepin’ on. But if you’ve read this far, Saya surmises that you could use guidance. Trust her and let her guide you.

For fourteen years, Saya has asked people to challenge themselves. No one has died. No one has embarrassed themselves. In fact the opposite usually occurs. People have flourished and shone. Even when they knew they couldn’t, wouldn’t.

She’s over hearing people say they can’t, but, what if. Are you tired of saying “I can’t” “But” “What if”? Are you ready to embrace the fear and figure out how to move past it or even better, use it for good? Are you ready to do instead of dream?

To Expect
  • Stories and concrete examples from Saya’s journey
  • Actual progress on your pain-point(s) resulting from guidance, time to apply lessons, sharing, and feedback
  • A warm environment where you may question your attendance a few times but in the end, you’ll feel productive, accomplished, and invigorated to continue
  • Tough love paired with unconditional and non-judgmental cheerleading
  • Camaraderie with fellow attendees

To Bring
  • A tablet or laptop + pen and paper is ideal (if you don’t have a tablet/laptop, that’s ok)
  • Food/drink for yourself, if you’d like
  • Your fear, hesitation, and willingness



In order for Bootcamp to run, at least ten people need to register. So if you want to come and ensure that it runs, share! With your network, with someone specifically. Then, let's get to work.

Refund Policy: there are no refunds or credits unless Saya cancels Bootcamp. You can transfer your spot to someone else by updating their name and email via your Eventbrite account.
