Ep15 - "Fear Detox: Speak up in 2019" with Anna Roberts
On Episode 15 of the Deals in High Heels Show, communications strategist Anna Roberts uncovers how she grew from shy introvert to an international radio presenter, started her own business and worked closely with billionaires all in the space of 10 years. She recognizing fear was RULING her life, and slowly eliminating it from controlling her decisions.
Special thanks to our official venue partners The Capital Club, and our strategic partners Hopscotch, Briar Prestidge International and InstaGlam.
Award-winning broadcaster Anna Roberts saw first hand the issue many entrepreneurs face - having a great idea but an inability to communicate that vision with the world. Drawing from a decade in live radio and television Anna created a global platform to allow startups to access communications training and resources to help them scale their ideas effectively and authentically. Born in New Zealand, Anna has lived in the Middle East for almost 25 years and currently co-hosts the Morning Majlis on Pulse 95. See more at

I wake up every morning knowing what I steps I need to take that day to craft myself a successful future. I know I have to work for it, go out there and GET IT. My future is my responsibility and with some hard work, perseverance and some guts, I can create my life by design.

Whether we like it or not, social media is here to stay... 87% of people now Google you prior to meeting you. So we can either guide and cultivate it to work in our favour or leave it to do its own thing and have a negative impact. It was an honour to speak at the Social Media Summit to deliver my "no-fluff" Instagram strategies to build a following and position leaders above the online noise.
I’m not going to sit here and sugar coat things; many people have a perception of entrepreneurship as ‘glamourous.’ It’s not. I know entrepreneurs who have eaten nothing but pasta for a week, been kicked out of their apartments and become so late with payments that they got put in prison.
Success. We all want it. But, few are prepared to put in the hard graft required. Bill Gates didn’t just wake up one morning lying on billions of dollars – it took years of learning, strategising and hard work. Yep, those 5am morning wake-ups and weekends spent indoors working were AWFUL, but they sure were worth it to now be working for myself.
We have watched the rise of Influencers. "Joe Bloggs" started crafting an online brand and has grown an online community of thousands of followers. Even I created my own alter-ego, Deals in High Heels. But, now everyone’s creating content! Authentically BORING content! Why not be memorable? Here are my tips to get you started.
Jumping out of your comfort zone requires you to make mistakes, to learn, to feel scared at times, TO THROW YOURSELF INTO THE LIMELIGHT AND TO FACE THE CRITICISM OF OTHERS; but that’s where the magic happens..
Snarling and unimpressed by the reflection before him, the Voice hurls insults at the mirror. One after the other. The same hatred that was thrown yesterday, and the day before that. Stopping negative self talk had a hugely positive impact on my life. But, it didn't happen overnight. Here are my tips so you can have a more positive outlook too.
I think I've heard every objection under the sun! And I used to feel defeated. When I changed my mindset and practised, my business started to increase. Through practice, I started to realise that objections were actually opportunities to further convey how great my service is! So you can make more sales, here are my top tips.
Because it feels so good to get validated, other people’s opinions suddenly have more value than our own. Often, especially in our professional lives, we hide in the trenches rather than take risks to share our true thoughts; afraid of what others may think. Afraid of losing business and relationships. Afraid of appearing as 'wrong.' Here is why you should speak up.
