How Authentic Storytelling Can Change Your Biz & Life with Former Today Show Producer Patrice Poltzer

How Authentic Storytelling Can Change Your Biz & Life with Former Today Show Producer Patrice Poltzer

Buckle up, ladies, today we have Patrice Poltzer, a former TODAY Show producer, powerhouse storyteller and online business owner, who’s going to whip us into shape and tell us how we can be more successful in business and life using storytelling as a tool! Storytelling allows you to cut through the online marketing noise and attract the right audience to your business. 

Patrice is so inspiring and shares all her tips and tools on how to tell a great story. She also shares with us how she took her business completely online which allowed her to leave the country with her family of five. She figured out the secret sauce to online sales and she’s pouring that into us today!

Patrice Poltzer is an Emmy-nominated and award-winning former TODAY Show producer and the head of Patrice Poltzer Creative. She helps people and brands tell their unique stories so they connect with their audiences. She’s also a badass mom of three and just relocated her family from NYC to Lisbon, Portugal. She runs her successful business completely online!

Patrice and I discuss:

  • The power of storytelling: It’s a critical marketing tool that can emotionally connect with strangers.
  • Focusing on a small, loyal audience: It’s better to have a small group of highly engaged followers than a large audience with little engagement. Provide value to your audience and they will become your promoters.
  • Not outsourcing your authenticity: You can outsource some tasks like video editing, but it’s important to maintain a personal connection with your audience. Your story and voice are a big part of your brand.
  • Investing in yourself: Taking courses or hiring coaches can help you avoid mistakes and reach your goals faster.
  • Starting small and iterating: Don’t be afraid to experiment and make changes as you learn more about your audience and business.
  • Getting clear on your ideal customer: The more you understand your target audience, the better you can tailor your message to resonate with them.
  • Being patient: Building a successful business takes time and effort. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results overnight.
  • Overcoming fear: Don’t let the mess in your head mess with your message.

In a world full of bland AI content, faceless accounts, and an abundance of content, it’s critical to use storytelling to Step Into the Spotlight to get seen, heard, paid, and make an impact!
