This podcast has been rockin' since 2015, we've had hundreds of thousands of downloads, some truly wonderful guests, epic pageant trainings (if I do say so myself), beautiful reviews, and Awesome success stories!

And it's about to get even better!

When I started this podcast in 2015, my goal was to train you to win your pageant by improving who YOU are as a person and leaving a legacy that will positively impact the world. That's still my goal - I want to elevate the pageant world by training women how to nail it from the start.

I've got success stories up the wazoo of how women around the world have won their pageants because of the training they've received through this podcast -- for FREE!

And yet - the medium of podcasting is limited.

You can listen to all the wonderful trainings, but you're likely busy driving, putting on your make-up, doing the dishes or going for a job --- that's just some of the stuff I do while listening.

It's hard to implement what I'm talking about without the time or space dedicated to your coaching.

Plus, as a teacher, I know that the best way to learn engages multiple senses.
Listening alone means you won't retain as much of the information. In fact, Watching while listening and simultaneously DOING and Engaging with the content is the BEST way to learn...

....and therefore the best way for me to teach.

So - I'm rolling out a new training method: Win A Pageant Master Class series!

A Master Class is an in-depth training around a specific topic (just like the podcast trainings, but even more meat on them).

It's a series, because I'll be doing a new topic for each Master Class.

The Pageant Master Class will be taught over Facebook Video LIVE.

Each month, you'll be able to join me live on Facebook for a video training on a new topic.

After you've watched the show live, over video, you'll be able to ask me questions you have about your pageant in the comments of the video and I'll answer as many as I can right then and there - LIVE!
How's that for immediate feedback?!

If for some reason you aren't able to join me for the Master Class live, don't sweat it - you'll be able to go to the Facebook page after the training to watch the recording.

I won't be able to answer questions there after the live recording, but you'll be able to Listen, Watch, Do, and Engage with the trainings, which means you'll be able to learn it so much better than the podcast.

Now, the podcasts aren't anything to snuff at. Many women have proven that if you are willing to do the work, you can use these episodes on the podcast to Win your pageant!

So, the episodes that I've already created for you will remain available here on iTunes.

But, the real goodness happens on our Facebook Page!

Everyone is going to be heading there now to make sure they are caught up on the Master Class series.

Go to WinAPageant.com/MasterClass, which will take you to the most recent or upcoming Master Class in the series.
Like the Facebook Page Win A Pageant to stay up with your pageant training.

I'm really looking forward to this new format because we'll be able to get to know each other better.

I'll love seeing your name pop up on my screen that you're joining live and each video, I'll be answering your pageant questions and celebrating your success stories. It'll be fun!!

So, while this may be the last episode I'll be posting on iTunes (who knows I may decide to come back), this isn't goodbye -- we're just moving to Facebook.

So, head over to WinAPageant.com/MasterClass now to jump in with me!
I'll see you on Facebook :)

In this episode Alycia interviews Stephi Williams. As National Director for the Little Miss, Pre-Teen, Jr. Teen, Teen, Miss, Ms., and Ms. Woman divisions, Stephi Williams shares the same vision as the owner of Mrs. United States National Pageants, Inc.

This is where she really got the feeling that she had a passion for continuing her giving and assistance in empowering others.

In this episode Alycia interviews Kristi Dosh. Kristi Dosh is a former practicing attorney who transformed her career through blogging and social media to become a nationally-recognized sports business analyst (the "SportsBizMiss") with outlets such as Forbes and ESPN. Since then, she's written for nearly two dozen national publications, given dozens of keynote speeches across the country and written two nonfiction books.

She once wrote a piece about being addicted to finding new opportunities, and that is perhaps why she now finds herself working as a publicist for professionals and online entrepreneurs through her company, GuideMyBrand.com.

On the side, she still serves as a sports business analyst for Forbes, Campus Insiders and other national outlets. Her specialties include college athletics finance and governance, licensing and marketing.
