I teach entrepreneurs about online and offline visibility and how that can create credibility for their business. What are your thoughts about Lance Armstrong confessing to doping during his career? This will definitely create more visibility for him, but his credibility is down the tubes!

What advice would you give him to build back up his credibility?

Empowered Women Speakers featured on Examiner.com


Face 4Ward is designed to highlight businesses that are making positive impacts not only within their communities but throughout the world.

Every year women are overcoming several odds and making tremendous leaps and bounds. Everything they do must be about balance. Women businesses have been the backbone of this economy for decades due to their leadership-as we have seen in Eleanor Roosevelt and Sandra Day O’Connor-along with vision, drive and inspiration.

As we kick-off the second week of“Celebrating the accomplishments of women-owned businesses” Series meet Mary Liu, Founder of Empowered Women Speakers who is a mother of two college-aged young men and have been married for 24-years. During her busy schedule as a mother and wife she has not only been a serial entrepreneur for over 28 years, built two successful six-figure businesses and recently launched a third one but is an Award-Winning Entrepreneur, International Speaker, Trainer, Facilitator, Visibility Business Coach and Best-Selling Author of “Speaking Your Truth: Courageous Stories from Inspiring Women.“

Tell us more about Empowered Women Speakers? 
I teach women entrepreneurs both on and offline marketing strategies to gain visibility and credibility to help position themselves as the expert in their field. My strategies are designed to catapult women businesses. I have this passion for women because I have been able to overcome shame, low self-esteem issues, and feelings of not being worthy since childhood because of my birth defect.

This defect had caused me to go into “hiding” and not wanting to be “seen.” It had affected both my personal and professional life. It wasn’t until the age of 45 that I had the courage to speak my truth. Speaking my truth has taken my life to a new empowering direction. I want to pass this courage of speaking the truth on to other women who may be experiencing similar issues within their lives.

What are some tips that you can share with women business owners?
1. Ask for support. You don’t need to be superwoman and do it all yourself.
2. Celebrate, acknowledge, and own your successes everyday. No matter how small or grand they are.
3. Have a positive mindset. Surround yourself with people who is like-minded and are rooting for your success.
4. Believe in your dreams, take a leap of faith and act upon it. Then, trust yourself with your decision.

What does the future hold for Empowered Women Speakers? 
My mission is to create a community for aspiring women speakers and entrepreneurs dedicated to building relationships focused on collaboration, support and business growth. My vision is to have women from across the world share in our wisdom circles to empower, educate, and mentor others. I strive for women to step in their greatness to Be Bold. Be Brilliant. Be Seen!

With such a successful business, do you have any time to give back?
I provide business coaching to the women entrepreneurs at Urban Solutions, a non-profit
organization that supports low-income women to create their businesses. I am also in the process of volunteering with Women’s Initiative, another non-profit that supports low-income women to start their businesses.

“Believe in Your Dreams. Take a Leap of Faith. Trust Yourself.”

I just discovered a cool YouTube tool that is genius to market your business.  It’s called the Search Stories Video Creator.  Enter up to six queries and choose a musical track, and the video creator will produce your own story.  When the video is done, you can upload it to your YouTube account.

With this tool, you get a professional quality video for free.  Imagine all of the ways this could be used to gain visibility for you and your business to Be Seen! ~  business ads, nonprofit campaigns, photo tours, videos & more!   Each one would be an ad for Google, but worth it for the creativity that can be unleashed.

Check out my search story, and share a link to yours in the comment section.
