Hey hey! I’m so excited to team up with you to pull off something that’s going to be absolutely incredible.
The De-stress From Your PCS Summit: Community Edition is a 4-day event that will help military mamas who have recently PCS’d find news ways of building community while also prioritizing their self-care.
On this page, you’ll find all kinds of resources meant to make your life as a speaker as easy as possible and answer any questions you might have. If you run into a question I didn’t answer, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a speaker, you’ll also get free access to the All Access Pass!
Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.
The event will run from October 3-6, 2022 with 4-5 pre-recorded presentations running each day. These presentations will include 12-22 minutes of content (with up to a 2-minute pitch) and a live chat.
While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to attend their presentation time live to interact with attendees in the chatbox. There is no video component, so attendance in pjs is recommended
Along with the live presentations, there will be a community group for attendees to hang out in, hold each other accountable, and ask all of us additional questions. If attendees have good questions while your presentation is going on, you’ll be able to go live in the community group for a bit of an encore to answer those questions, connect with the attendees, and provide even more value.
The additional live element is not required but might be nice to try if you’re feeling adventurous.
Leading up to the summit, we’ll have two weeks of promotion. You’ll be provided with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and social media graphics to make it all easy! I’ll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy to outsource to a VA.
During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, and for a week after the summit is complete, we’ll also be promoting the All Access Pass. This includes an All-Access Pass for the replays, e-books, movement and meditation practices, audio files of the presentations and more. This will provide immense value to our attendees, while making the work of promoting and creating a presentation worthwhile by allowing you to bring in affiliate commissions. Yay!
So this all sounds great, but what kind of work does it require of you? Let’s chat about it! My goal is to make this all as easy as humanly possible so we can all have a blast while providing great value and growing our businesses.
This information includes things like:
Once you give me the thumbs up that you’re in, I’ll send you a link where you can upload all this information easily.
While your presentation will be pre-recorded, you’ll still be required to be in the chat live during your time slot to answer questions and connect with attendees. During this slot, once your presentation has had time to air, you’ll also be able to jump into the community group for an encore and to answer any great questions that weren’t answered in your presentation. (These lives will also be added to the All Access Pass).
Once we’ve confirmed you title, I’ll let you know which day based on theme oof the day you’re slotted for. Then you’ll let me know a few times that day that will work for you to be “live”. This just means that any one who has questions will be able to chat with you to have their questions answered.
Next up is your presentation! This is a 12-22 minute pre-recorded presentation that is meant to be more friendly and casual than perfect and structured. We want our attendees to learn something great, while having fun in the process.
Please structure your content in a way that allows attendees to walk away feeling like they’ve really learned something, rather than a webinar format where they feel like they’re missing something that they need to buy from you asap.
With that being said, you have your choice of the following presentation formats:
If you’d like to go with the interview style presentation, schedule a time with me to do that here. You’ll still be responsible for editing if any is needed, but we’ll work together to come up with questions.
No matter what format you choose, you are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future.
Your presentation should include great, actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:
Along with each presentation will be a worksheet. There are a few reasons behind this:
The content of the worksheet should follow along with your presentation and encourage attendees to take action. You are more than welcome to include links and a call-to-action at the end.
If you’d like an example, you can see the contents of my worksheet from last summit here
Like I said, this process is meant to be as easy as possible so you have a couple options. You can either:
If you choose to go with option 1, your worksheet will be due along with your presentation on September 12, 2022. If you choose options 2 or 3, your presentation is due on September 2, 2022, to give my team time to take care of it.
Presentations are due by September 12, 2022.

The All Access Pass will be a huge addition to the presentations we’re running. To make it even more valuable, I’ll ask each of you to provide one (or more if you’d like) resource to add. This includes things like:
Note: I expect this to convert well so I do not recommend contributing any 1:1 offers unless you’d like to donate that as a prize during the summit.
It’s totally up to you to decide whether you’d like to create something new or provide something you already have. While this isn’t required, it’s highly encouraged that you participate.
Anyone who does contribute a premium resource (aka not something you’re giving away for free somewhere else) will get an additional “point” toward our profit share – more on this is a second.
Information for these resources is due on September 16, 2022. You’ll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to me nice and simple.
The power of an online summit comes from a group of experts coming together for a single cause. The joint promotion that happens because of that is a huge benefit to everyone involved.
Because of that, everyone is encouraged to share on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on September 19, 2022.
Sharing and engagement are also part of the profit share model – keep on reading for that one.
You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault below.
And last comes participation during the week of the event. Since we’ll already have done the work of creating the presentations and extra resources, we’ll be able to sit back and relax for the most part!
All I ask is that you participate in the chat during your presentation slot and interact in the community group throughout the week to help attendees stay excited and engaged.
While you are not required to attend the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.
While summits are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?
Typically, summits do an affiliate program where speakers get 30-50% of the commission from All Access pass sales. The problem I’ve seen with this model is that some speakers, especially those with smaller audiences, don’t make any money despite their contributions being valuable to the summit.
So this year, I’d like to doo a 50/50 profit share with the speakers. That means that half of whatever is made in sales from the All Access Pass will be split among our presenters. The All Access Pass will be priced at
Payouts will be made by October 13, 2022.
The payouts will be determined by:
I am hoping this eliminates the competition of “first clicks” for the audience and also encourages more promotion as we all benefit from more attendees (remember you can pitch to the audience so you can get leads that way), and also helps create an All Access Pass that no one will want to pass on = $$$ for presenters too.
To make it as easy as possible for you to generate extra income, the Resource Vault includes things like email swipe copy, social media copy, and social share graphics. However, you’re more than welcome to write your own copy and even run your own Facebook ads.
Now for those resources I promised to make your life as easy as possible.
In this folder you’ll find the following resources:

Phew, that was a lot to cover! You’re awesome for making it this far 🙂
For the sake of clarity, here are your current action steps:
Remember to grab your to do list and get things added to your calendar. Because if you’re like me, if it’s not in your calendar it doesn’t exist.
Here’s a roundup of our key dates:
