Introduce yourself and tell us about your profession:
Hey, hey! I’m Mys (rhymes with bliss) Palmer, and I am The Brand Voice Coach. As a communication expert, I lead a community where I help both employees and bidniz's OWN their stories authentically & profitably. Over the last 12 years, I have helped over 500 clients create connected brands, unmistakable content and unimaginable profit increases. Plus, I’m the “official” ice cream aficionado (Seriously).
Creating a brand has become a must. Which means it's also now a buzz word. My work exists because your brand is what people say about you when you leave the room. How they feel after being with you. I believe in authenticity more than I buy into skills. Creating impactful communication is my forever work. I have the ability to transform how people interact with your personal or company brand which removes barriers to increasing your income.
What sparked your interest in this are?
Writing took over my life. When I was 18 I was enrolled in college and working full-time. Some of that work included writing resumes and content for businesses. Creatively, writing poetry gave me access to releasing energy I otherwise had no clue how to deal with. Before long, I was pulling over out of traffic to write. Literally pulling over to the shoulder, on the highway, to get the stories on paper.
I didn't know it at the time, but my life would never be the same. Writing was a mirror and the reflection was disconnected from what my purpose was. So I began investing in myself. Transforming my blind spots, accessing where I was playing small and doing something about it. I went from being a writer for hire to developing campaigns and strengthening communication as a whole. I committed myself to showing other solopreneurs and corporate climbers how to communicate from connection, on purpose and with clarity.
What advice would you have to women interested in a similar pursuit?
To crack the code to become a transformation coach/author/speaker or if your business isn't working as well as you want it to, 1. Confront your thoughts. There are conversations you have with yourself that stop you from playing a really big game. And when you want to be there for another person, you need to be free'd up. 2. Discover Your VOICE. Really discover it for yourself and stay true to it by communicating from that place consistently. It's the only way to create a brand that persists in people's minds. 3. Take on vulnerability. Being vulnerable is not just showing emotion. Vulnerability means giving people you. Not just tools.
What is next for you in 2017/2018?
My book/training Crack the Code: 30 Days to a $10K Raise launches in October and the LIVE version The Impactful Masterclass happens Nov. 17-19 2017 at The Atlanta Botanical Garden. I am developing courses to give more people more access, phasing out the traditional 1:1 coaching model. The Impactful Masterclass will also have dates in 2018
