Show Notes

What does it look like to write your own story? Big Talk Academy founder Tricia Brouk helps her clients become the go-to experts in their fields through tapping into the power of their authentic stories and building industry-leading voices.

Storytelling lies firmly within Tricia’s zone of genius. She’s not only a respected speaker mentor, she’s also a dancer, actress, producer, choreographer, and award-winning filmmaker. Growing up in a small town in Missouri, Tricia knew by the age of seven that she was going to move to Manhattan and become a ballerina—a dream that she achieved at 20 years old, after years of visioning and moving into action. In this conversation, we talk about the power of vision boards, the act of deciding to step into what’s possible, and how Tricia continues to flex her visioning muscle.

  • What it means to shift out loud—how Tricia’s shifts brought her to some truly big stages
  • Why you need to stop worrying about the “how” and just stay in the flow
  • How to create a connection with and give energy to your vision

Tricia Brouk helps high-performing professionals transform into industry thought leaders through the power of authentic storytelling. She is the founder of Big Talk Academy and was the executive producer of Speakers Who Dare and TEDx Lincoln Square. She is the producer and host of The Big Talk, an award-winning podcast and YouTube channel. Her book, The Influential Voice: Saying What You Mean for Lasting Legacy, was a #1 new release on Amazon.
