Legendary singer Bruce Springsteen wouldn’t be quite as fascinating without his gravelly-voice. So just in case he got laryngitis…he insured his voice for $6 million.
Liberace and Rolling Stone guitarist Keith Richards both insured their hands.
For the last century, Lloyd’s of London has insured the unique assets of all kinds of stars. Dolly Parton insured her breasts for $600,000. Betty Grable insured her famous legs for $1 million (as did porn start Porsche Lynn). People have insured everything from hands (famous surgeons) to waistlines (Bette Davis) to beards (The Derbyshire Whiskers Club).
J-Lo is even rumored to have insured her booty for $27 million.
I created this video for top-earning speakers-- but these tips apply to you as well.
In this video, I’ll give you 3 examples of how I do this myself. (Hello, early risers!)
Most of us don’t have Bruce Springsteen’s voice, or Betty Davis’ waistline. And that’s okay. We each have something else: personality.
Your personality is your most valuable asset.
The greatest value you can add is to become more of yourself. (Tweet this!)
Protect your personality as you would protect any other valuable asset.
You are the guardian of your own top qualities. (Tweet this!)
Who knows, you might be calling Lloyd’s of London.

Firstly, respect for saying "inimitable" so smoothly! And I LOVE the idea of my personality being a gas tank. As a PASSION person I really do need to keep my energy topped up and you're right Sally, it is my responsibility to protect it. Thanks!
Great Tips! I travel for business often and I'm also one to go to bed on time, not make big business decisions or be stressed in any way that effects my energy or personality, it's definitely an asset.
My smile, my openess, my approachability.
This video really resonated with me! As a catalyst, O have always recognized that if O don't have my mojo", I don't perform as well. Avoiding conflicts, big decisions, too much stimulation etc before I need to teach, train or coach has been something that I recognized helped preserve my passion tank. Thanks for the validation!
Love it, Sally! I'm getting ready for a major 3-day conference on the 19th, so will be mindful of your tips so my Intrigue personality doesn't run out of mojo:) Plus, your ideas are important for each and every person I'll meet > to offer my full passion/mystique advantages! Happy weekend:) Michele
one of the greatest values of my personality is I listen first and speak second. This has allowed me to pay attention to what my audiences strive for, and deliver a superior product. Can you guess which archetype that makes me? The gas tank idea is so true! Today was filled with connecting and working in my business. This drains me faster than working on my business (behind the scenes). Shine on!
Inimitable, love this word! Thanks Sally, your work really is fascinating.
Sally, you have a way with Saying what Matters. And you know instinctively what Matters. And I think that's your Highest value ! As for me, my Highest value is knowing who and what to look out for in order to bring out Mine Own ! Thanks for sharing with us Your Gift, Sally ! :):)
Thanks, Sally! I like the gas tank metaphor... Is this equally true for all archetypes? Do certain types have "bigger" gas tanks (asks the Ringleader :)) Or maybe I need to protect my personality against doesn't drains than the Wise Owl might...? Thanks for the insights!
Yet another useful insight, delivered with energy and passion, from Sally. Thanks. Keep it coming!
