In this episode of the Online Creator Podcast, Kim talks with Cathlyn.  Cathlyn Melvin is a TEDx coach and copywriter whose insight has been featured via TEDx, Thrive Global, Fempreneur Online, The Writing Cooperative, and other outlets.

With a degree in theatre performance and over a decade as an actor, director, writer, editor, and educator, Cathlyn draws on her diverse experiences to help mission-driven experts design and deliver their world-changing messages through TEDx coaching and done-for-you copywriting services.

When she’s not writing or coaching, you might find Cathlyn baking something delicious made of chocolate or reading in the sunshine with her very snuggly and loudly purring cat, Tucker.

  • How she shows up as her authentic self in business and life
  • Cathlyn’s first speaking experience and how this led her to become a TEDx coach
  • What it looks like to work with you and the benefits of speaking on a stage.
  • The steps and timeframe for preparing and applying for a TEDx presentation
  • Three ‘sticky’ stages of the presentation process and how she works with her clients to overcome each stage

This is a conversational-style podcast filled with genuine advice, actional tips and strategies to help you be seen and heard in your industry. Check out more episodes here Online Creator Podcast.
