Sexuality experts of all genres often excel at content delivery but fail in business. A private practice, workshop/training business, or even being a speaker or writer/blogger has its inherent challenges; as a sexological entrepreneur you are the business AND you run the business. You must learn how to maximize your potential for success, preserve yourself in the process, while you monetize your message. This workshop will share insider secrets from seasoned global business owners –also sex experts –who from years of expertise will provide relevant knowledge and skills rehearsal to enable your greater success.
This workshop will present an introduction, followed by an overview (using PPT and lecture) of the top five strategies for success as a sexuality educator and/or sex expert (25 minutes). It will use interactive exercises, self reflection, dyad and group discussions, mini lectures, writing, Q&A, and interactive deep dives into two specific strategies: Strategy #1: “Vision Your Success” activity that includes self reflection and evaluation of the business, eliciting an understanding of and goals for the business through the inclusion of the “Vision Your Success” worksheet handout that guides the process (25 minutes) ; #2 Strategy: “WDYD” invites participants into another deep dive experience of learning the essentials and steps for speaking-as-marketing, by teaching specific techniques that can have immediate application for the sex experts in the room, along with a handout worksheet for self study and sustained learning/skills practice (25 minutes). Through lectures, discussions, role plays and interactive rehearsal skills drill, this workshop will provide a practical skills base to promote any sex expert’s business toward greater success. It concludes with a group discussion of “take aways” and tips for sustaining momentum for implementation once back home (15 minutes).
