One of the common misconceptions of winning a pageant is the idea that when you win a pageant, you'll be swept away into some fairytale land where you get a business manager, PR specialist and full glam team. The reason people believe this is because this is what happens in some pageants - namely Miss USA or Miss America.

But, for most pageant winners, this is not the case. In fact, when you win your pageant you are actually expected to be the one to book your own appearances. Sometimes you are contractually obligated to do 2 or more per month, so this is a necessary skill long before you win the title. In this episode, I give you the 7 steps to book appearances like a true pageant professional!

I'm sure you've seen a pageant girl with the 'deer in the headlights' syndrome. It's sad and awful for everyone including the woman in the spotlights! She doesn't even know she's doing it. If she did, don't you think she'd stop? Of course she would, and that's what I'm here for. To help you make sure for sure that isn't you!

In this episode, I'll present the one thing that you need to do every time you step onto stage to avoid being the deer in pageant headlights. It's not complex, but it does take some practice.

One of the greatest skills that pageant women learn is to convey memorized material in a way that feels new every time. It's a secret of actors, speakers, and media professionals. And it's a vital skill to win a pageant.

Usually, when a woman attempts to memorize a speech, it generally loses emotional qualities that make it feel real, relatable, and engaging. One of my greatest pet-peeves, and that of every judge and pageant director and audience member... is a boring, monotone on stage introduction or answer to an on-stage question. It's painful to listen to, makes you pity the poor girl, and gets hideously low scores.

I've heard so many well-written introductions that get wasted away with no emotion. In this episode, you'll learn how to add emotion into your introduction to help you memorize it without boring the audience, but rather spiking their attention.

In this episode, I'll teach you how to differentiate your platform from all other contestants by creating a unique stance of what you believe. If you go through the steps I outline in this episode, not only will you be able to write an essay that is totally unique and descriptive, but you'll also be able to explain how it's different from others to the media, your judges, and sponsors. It's fun to imagine how you can make an impact on the world by standing for what you believe.

I call this the Perfect Pageant Platform Outline because it's simple, real, and will differentiate you from the competition. It consists of 5 questions. The answer to each question becomes a paragraph in your essay. Depending on length, you may combine some of the paragraphs, but you should still have 5 distinct parts in this order. I'll give you all 5 questions and then we'll unpack each one.
