Michelle Mazur on Your 3-Word Rebellion

Michelle Mazur, Ph.D. founded Communication Rebel® on the belief that communication changes the world, so that’s what she helps business owners and speakers do: rebel against the status quo to make a difference, one compelling message at a time. She is the author of 3 books including the newly released 3 Word Rebellion: Create a One-of-a-Kind Message that Grows Your Business into a Movement and the host of the Rebel Rising podcast. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her adoring husband, three obsessive felines, and a huge collection of Duran Duran memorabilia.

Here are some of the big topics we talked about…

  • Having 3-Word Rebellion calls in the right people and gets them to act

  • Michelle’s strategy helps entrepreneurs succeed, applying principles of social movement theory to their businesses

  • Define yourself by what you really love and what holds meaning for you

  • You can learn to craft your message and hear yourself over all the noise

  • Free-writing gets raw ideas onto paper, where you can deal with the ideas and patterns

  • Hear more about her step by step process of how to see objectively

In Michelle’s Voice

"It’s that one of a kind message that encapsulates the change you want to create for your audience. It helps you grow your business.”

"It makes people curious about what you’re doing in the world and compelled to act, to find out more.”

"Social movements are amazing at encapsulating the change they want to create in just a few words. Entrepreneurs do the same thing!”

“You have to figure out what you’re rebelling against and come up with a plan for something different.”

“It should really be about creating something bigger than yourself and making a difference!”

“I think what people are really craving now is significance, legacy, impact.”

“I believe your message comes from your own voice. Your 3-Word Rebellion exists in what you’ve been saying and creating, it’s just that you’re too close to it and your brain is too noisy to actually hear it.”

“There is no right or wrong, just the essence of what you’re actually thinking. So I recommend free-writing!”

“I look at the words as a data set, where I’m trying to figure out what patterns are there here?”
