Speaking Calculator – Words to Minutes Calculator







Would you like to be able to calculate how long your speaking gig will take?  Many times you are given certain about of time to speak and they let you know that you really can’t go past the allotted amount of time they’ve given you.

Speaking Calculator

I have actually been at workshops where there are several workshops going on at the same time and everyone is supposed to end at the same time, then the participants are able to go to several workshops at the conference.  If a speaker runs on for too long it can really throw a kink into things for all of the other speakers as well as for the attendees.

Well, I have something here for you that is really neat, you know how I love to pass along really great techniques, biz tips, gadgets and techy wisdom to you don’t you!?  I have something here you are really going to love to help you with a pretty good guesstimation of how long your speech will be.

Check out this website that helps you convert the number of words you have written for your speech into the time it takes to deliver your speech.  It’s quick and easy, it’s online and it’s absolutely FREE!  We love free don’t we!?

This techy tool is awesome when you are preparing for a speech or a presentation. The number of minutes you will take is dependent on the number of words and your speed of speech, or reading speed.

Now, be sure to note that this calculator is really close but can’t claim 100% accuracy because some people are slow speakers and some are fast, BUT it even does it’s best to help you choose which speed!

Platform: Facebook & Youtube

Have you ever tried to post a Youtube Video on a facebook page (timeline, groups, feed, etc) & sometimes discover the picture preview of the video is not showing?
Well, it happens more often than you think and we all know most people are more likely to click and view a video with a preview rather than the one that does not have one.

What is your particular RHYTHM?


Each of us is unique in our own rhythms and how we seem to work best without interruptions and where it is that we find that we are “in the flow” of creating all that we need to. I have found myself to get into a wonderful rhythm when it comes to flow!

2119-seasonalAre you an EARLY BIRD waking up easily and ready to begin the work with a clear head and a sharp wit? Then that is the best time for you to allow yourself the space to get into the rhythm of your work. You are most likely wide eyed and chomping at the bit to get to it and start getting everything written up on your to do list and look forward to getting all of those items checked off! The things that I like to do in the mornings is 1st create my TO DO LIST for the day, respond to emails, schedule appointments with clients, take POWER SESH Calls with potential clients, have all of my coaching calls with clients and help them create strategies, programs, brainstorming sessions, lead my MasterMind Groups, etc… These are the things that I thrive on during the day.

If you are anything like me, after accomplishing all of this, you experience a great sense of accomplishment having all the things on your list completed.

Later afternoon you may even begin to lose focus, and can feel a bit sleepy and even consider taking a power nap!

Allow yourself to take that power nap! It’s proven to be really good for you to do so! I’ve written about the blessings of POWER NAPS in another blog post!

1506-vintageOR Are You a NIGHT OWL? I have found that in my biz it’s such a sacred time in the late hours of the night when I am working on blog posts, writing for the newsletter, writing in regard to speaking topics and those types of things that require me to have absolute silence and be away from the distractions of all the things that can bombard me during the day.

This may sound a bit odd, but I find my rhythms in BOTH the EARLY BIRD and the NIGHT OWL worlds, depending upon what I am doing.

Determine your rhythms, allow for the sacred flow to occur. Also, just be sure to maintain a balance so that you do not find yourself working non-stop and losing balance with your family and your social life.

I take my breaks in the latter part of the afternoon allowing for lunch with my husband and with my girlfriends. Learn what your rhythms are and benefit from on the time that works best for you as you run your awesome biz!

Cheers to Your Biz,
Kathryn Rich Bonner

Free biz resource tip – wiggio

TIP OF THE WEEK FOR YOUR BIZI have many of you asking for free resources and I want to share this webinar resource that some friends highly recommended with you.

I must create a disclaimer of truth right off of the bat… I personally have not tried this yet, but my friends are “all about it”!

So, I feel good in sharing this Free Resource with you!

For those of you interested in giving a webinar, seminar or presentation, my friends tested out www.wiggio.com as a virtual meeting place with audio and video.

There are some great tools there for your biz, groups, ministries and the like… and it’s all free.  My friends were thrilled with the quality of the video stream.

Some Of It’s Great Features:

  • It has a whiteboard you can use on the fly.
  • As a host you can control everyone’s video/audio, i.e. turn them on, turn them off…
  • You can send files.
  • Run a video or presentation within the meeting.
  • They also noticed you can have several whiteboard presentations preset, so all you have to do is press a button to move through the different whiteboard drawings. This is nice, so the presenter doesn’t have to worry about talking, drawing, hosting, etc, all at the same time.
  • All the guests and host can send public or private chats while in the meeting.
  • Phone audio is also connected to Wiggio, so you have a phone number you can offer peeps to call in and just receive audio.
  • There is a wiggio app as well, so others can log in from their phone.

The downside I need to mention:

So it almost always seems there is a “catch” to the freebies doesn’t it?  Well, that is also the case here… The down side is there is no recording of the meetings.
If you’re just interested in the audio recording, there are several apps you can use to record the meeting on your own.  I’m not pushing wiggio, I have been in too many Google+ hangouts that are very choppy on the video and audio, so just trying to help you all find alternative options that may work better.

If any of you have any other places that are good, like Hangouts and Wiggio for webinar presentations or group gatherings, feel free to make a comment and share your wealth of information with everyone! 🙂

Here is a link of a review of Wiggio which lists some other amazing and wonderful things about using it as well as some of the cons:   http://voip.about.com/od/Webinars/fr/Wiggio-Review.htm

Here’s to your presentations, percolations, & productions!
