274 Step Into Your Moxie – Vernon

Moxie For Self Transformation

Alexia Vernon - In this age of women’s empowerment, as ever increasing numbers of women are finding their voices and daring to take a stand for themselves and their causes. The publication of  Step Into Your Moxie: Amplify Your Voice, Visibility, and Influence in the World  (New World Library, October 16, 2018), by speaking and leadership coach Alexia Vernon, couldn’t be more perfectly timed.

Through her coaching and training programs and extensive speaking engagements, Alexia was dubbed a “Moxie Maven” by the Obama White House Office of Public Engagement for her robust approach to empowering women. She has helped tens of thousands of individuals speak with power and impact at work and in business, with their friends and family, onstage, on camera, and above all, to themselves. In Step into Your Moxie, she distills the communication discoveries she has made throughout her dynamic career into simple, effective, and practical recommendations women can use to experience deep and lasting transformation in all facets of their communication.

She Sets A Moxie Example

"Moxie is a mindset, heart set, and skill set that you can develop because I was most definitely not born with it. During the first quarter of my life, I experienced an on-again-off-again relationship — with my voice. One moment I felt like I was tap-dancing on eggshells, striving to be liked, give the right answers, and not be called out for failing to be enough of whatever I conjectured other people wanted me to be.

Then at other times, often close to those former times, I had an insufferable need to be recognized and praised for my achievements. I knew I was born to make a significant, positive impact on the world, but only later I learned how to redirect away from thinking about what other people were thinking of me. Now my thoughts drive directly to the objective - the impact that I want to make. In the past most of the time when I spoke my voice quavered, I used diminishing words and body language, and my speaking did not move people to take action."

Why Moxie Now?

"While shopping Step into Your Moxie to publishers, some of the feedback I received was, 'I’m not sure women’s empowerment or citizens’ marches and protests will still be a thing by the time the book comes out.'

Then, while writing the book, #MeToo and #TimesUp happened, millions of Americans continued to march on behalf of #BlackLivesMatter, #MarchForOurLives, and #KeepFamiliesTogether, and the world changed.

However, while women have marched and spoken up and out on behalf of themselves and others, it’s one thing to go to a rally or broadcast your views in an angry (or empowering) social media post. It’s an altogether different thing to tell yourself, and believe, that you possess the power and ability to advocate for yourself — especially if you are in an environment, professionally or personally, in which the people around you are complicit in maintaining the status quo.

Media outlets such as CNN, PBS, and Inc. predicted that 2018 would be 'the year of the woman,' but how many of us really feel like we have the moxie we need to consistently speak up, tell our truth, and create the future we want for ourselves and our loved ones? In Step into Your Moxie, I give women a pathway to cultivate their power so they can use it to speak up for themselves and the issues and causes that matter most to them.

As I say in the book when you step into your moxie, it is an act of divine service to yourself—and also to the world."
