As a former competitor, I completely understand how the expenses of pageantry add up. If you feel strapped from the beginning, you may not make wise choices about your expenses, which could leave you settling for third-rate services, low-quality wardrobe, or foregoing vital preparation all together.  It’s likely that you’ve heard of other girls getting sponsors for their pageants, so how are they successful and you aren’t. In this episode, I’m going to outline for you the 7 steps to get a pageant sponsor to help you pay for nearly everything. When I first used this strategy, I landed a sponsor over breakfast for $3,000. Let me show you how; go to GetPageantSponsors.com to watch a more detailed workshop for free.

Many pageant contestants believe in order to win, they must project some illusive image of perfection – the perfect hair, perfect nails, perfect teeth, perfect walk, talk, smile, etc. But, when it comes time for her to deliver her on-stage answer to a tough political question or hug a child at an appearance, ‘perfection’ is far less attractive. In these areas, on-lookers would rather experience someone who is real, approachable, likeable and trustworthy. The truth is: The more real you are, the more approachable, likeable, and trustworthy you become. In this episode we break down the difference between perfect and real.

When I first started competing, I was like many of my clients who believe that pageants are won on looks. And that’s because the majority of what is seen by the audience is the on-stage portion. The audience doesn’t see all the work that the pageant winners put in prior to their winning. The work is done behind the scenes, many months prior to the pageant, but the audience only sees the on-stage question.  It’s really a shame, because women then enter pageants without a legacy project, and they really have no chance of competing against a woman who has had proper guidance toward an impressive Legacy Project.

In this episode, I’m going to break down the steps I use with clients to develop a Legacy Project that helps her stand out and win!

All competitions are won in the combination of strategy and tenacity. Being a pageant titleholder is no different.  If you don’t know how to manage your energy, you will be left exhausted even before the pageant ends – and that is how women lose pageants. Conserving energy is key in pageantry. By understanding what commonly drains pageant contestants and creating a strategy to avoid the common drains, you’ll be able to manage your energy all the way through post-pageant media week!
