TEE 043: Curiosity – Edge To Making Money with Patricia Fripp

Patricia Fripp

Have you ever heard the saying that “curiosity killed the cat?” In episode 43 of The Executive Edge podcast world-renowned keynote speaker Patricia Fripp shares how you can make money and build your career through curiosity.

Patricia Fripp is a Hall of Fame keynote speaker, sales presentation expert, and executive speech coach. Named “One of the 10 most electrifying speakers in North America” by Meetings and Conventions magazine, Patricia delivers high-content, entertaining, dramatically memorable presentations.

She arrived in San Francisco from England at age 20 as a hairstylist with no job or contacts and little money. Patricia excelled in the beauty industry and became San Francisco’s most in-demand men’s hairstylist when that was a new domain. She started training stylists and speaking to promote her business, which led into her next successful career as a keynote speaker. On 60 Minutes she was asked, “There must be a big difference between being a hairstylist and a speaker?” She replied, “I used to work on the outside of heads; now I work on the inside. There is only a half inch difference.” That half-inch has been worth millions of dollars!

Patricia is a past president, and the first female president, of the over 3,000-member National Speakers Association. She is a member of the highly prestigious Speakers Roundtable, an invitation-only group of highly regarded professional speakers, authors, and consultants.

Patricia often teams up with her brother, legendary guitarist of King Crimson, Robert Fripp, for Fripp and Fripp presentations on “How to Be a Hero for More Than One Day” and “Beginner to Master.”

Systems Magnify Productivity

Systems

There are lots of ways to do our tasks from day-to-day. The most efficient path is through systems. Systems have the power to magnify our productivity in every task we undertake. You may not think that you use systems throughout your day. If I were to follow you around all day, (not in a creepy kind of way), I bet we would find all sorts of systems you have implemented. You might not even realize it.

When I moved to Florida years ago I stayed with a friend and they had in their entryway a plate for keys to go. I thought what a great idea! We instituted this process. As we come in and out throughout the day we drop our keys on the plate. This has solved the problem of searching for keys when running out the door to an appointment.

Another system is to park your car in roughly the same place or area each day you go to work. That solves having to look for your car at the end of the day. This is a simple example of daily systems to create efficiency.

Having systems in your business is smart. Implementing checklists is even smarter. I read this great book called “The Checklist Manifesto” by Atul Gawande. In it he explores how checklists are important for every type of business. I have been utilizing checklists and the stress reduction has been awesome!

As I continue to grow and evolve these systems will be a critical piece of my business to grow. As new vendors and employees come to work with me the learning curve shortened. Systems give you clarity so that you can spend your time in more creative ways.

I challenge you to put in place systems. You can also change or drop them but having them will free you up to do more of what you want to do.

Breaking Through Barriers

What barriers do you need to break through? What is holding you back from achieving the executive presence you seek? Linda H. Yates The Image Energizer shares how breaking through barriers is the path to success.

Two years ago I started on a journey to improve my smile. I got braces at age 47! Little did I know at that time what challenge it would be to correct my smile. Confidence is the underlying principle to reaching all of our goals. This past two years has been a hit on my self-image. I realized that I was letting my self conscious thoughts of the braces I’m wearing impact my stepping out and achieving my goals. This has been a self imposed mental barrier.

One of the best ways to experience a break through is to list how holding back from reaching to achieve your goals is effecting you. Keeping your mindset in a possibility framework will aid you in uncovering, realizing and accomplishing your potential.

If you desire more executive presence then breaking through your self imposed mental barriers is the answer.
