So you’ve got something to say to the world? Great! Now how do you find a way to get people to pay to listen to you?
Professional speakers like Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Jack Canfield and others blasted themselves into the stratosphere using the same techniques this article will teach you. That and a lot, lot, lot of elbow grease, a dab of luck and a consistent focus on the goal ahead got them to where they are today.
More than 7,500 people have been trained in how to become professional speakers through my work. Most have used speaking to generate all or part of their income. While many speakers get paid $15,000 or more for just one 45 minute talk, according to research by the National Speakers Association, even the “average” speaker gets between $1,000-$3,000 per engagement and does it about 20 times a year. Peanuts? Not at all! That adds up to an extra $60,000!
