Today, I'm telling you the truth about the "Fake it 'til you Make it" concept. You've likely heard this phrase before when someone is trying to beef up their confidence toward an effort they aren't prepared for. Many pageant women think "Fake it 'til you Make it" it means to keep pretending you know what you're doing until someone gives you a big break. Those girls never actually make it.

The difference between those that actually Make it really depends on who stops at the fake it part and who moves into the make it phase. The people that have succeeded with this concept are the ones who have found the right tools and put in the work to make it. You have to actively participate I the making part, not just the faking part. In this episode, I'll show you how.

One of the main concerns of some of the loveliest contestants is that they feel they are talking about themselves too much. It makes them uncomfortable, like they are bragging. They say they are just too humble to talk about themselves. This is a lovely quality, and professional suicide. They wish they didn't have to share anything about themselves, but then, how would anyone get to know you?

Sharing your own accolades and being proud of your progress is an important skill in life. You'll attend networking events and people will ask about you, what you do for work, and what you're into for fun.

Believe it or not: people want to know you! They do! To be an exceptional pageant woman, you have to be able to speak about yourself in a positive light.

The most beautiful way to share an accomplishment is to: Share credit with others in the form of gratitude. In this episode, I'm going to teach you how to do just that. Plus, I'll give you five excellent examples of how it can be done.

Wardrobe is always worth considering. It's a contestant's worst nightmare to arrive to the first pageant rehearsal in sneakers and an oversized t-shirt you wore to the gym in college only to find all the other girls dressed in their Sunday best even though the paperwork said to dress comfortably.' Comfortable is a relative adjective. To pageant girls, it means to skip the Jessica Simpson shoes for their Michael Kors wedges and exchange rhinestones and lace for spandex and silk. In today's episode, I'm going to teach you how to decide what to wear to your pageant rehearsal.

I'm gushing at the seams from how proud I am of the women in the Pageant Interview Game Plan. They are so dedicated to their success and by their success' I don't just mean them winning the pageant, but influencing their community in such a powerful way.

The Pageant Interview Game Plan is an online course that consists of 4 modules: Set Your Foundation, Plan Your Answers, Prepare to Dazzle, and Game Day: Showtime!

These are the four steps that must be followed to nail your pageant interview. Each module is broken up into individual lessons that have homework for each one to get you further down the path to success. It's designed to allow you to finish one module every week.

When you join, you have on-going access to it, so there's really no time limit except for when you have to compete, of course!

It comes with a Play Book that serves as a guide to get to know yourself, clarify your mission, research what the pageant is looking for, determine your stance on controversial issues, and tons of stuff that will transport you easily from confusion to clarity.

It also comes with access to a private group on Facebook that is only open to members of the course. This is where I get to see all the magic happening! Every week day, I jump into the Facebook Group and get to answer questions to help my students excel in the program. And, boy-oh-boy are they taking advantage of this personal coaching opportunity!

In this episode, I share some of what is happening in there so you could see if this is a community that may help you with your pageant interview.

You can get all the details about the program at Interview.WinAPageant.com.
I'd love to be your teacher, mentor, and coach to guide you toward a successful pageant interview.
If you know you're ready to make it happen, join us! Go to Interview.WinAPageant.com

I'll see you in the Game Plan!

No matter what, you have to deliver your answer with certainty in what you're saying. In this episode, I give you three simple steps to answer questions confidently no matter what your opinion is.
