When I first dreamed of being a speaker who had the ability to influence people in a way that it literally transformed their lives, I wasn’t quite sure where to find audiences who would want to listen to me.
What I did know was this; if you want to be successful at something, find someone who is successful at the thing you want to achieve and find out what they did.
I learned that life-changing insight from none other than Tony Robbins. I had gone through his full 30 day Unlimited Power series when they were still being sold on cassette.
With this in mind, I set out to find experts who were making a living from speaking. It was at that point I tapped into the National Speakers Association.
It was beyond amazing when I walked into a room full of men and women who were making a living speaking. I was in hog heaven (okay my farm life is showing 🙂 )!
One woman, Lori G., who made over $100,000 a year at that time gave me one bit of advice that I took to heart and have never forgotten.
“The more you speak, the more you speak.” It took me hearing this a few times until I completely understood what she meant.
What this simply means is this; the more people see you, hear you and are inspired by you, the more opportunity seems to come out of the woodwork.
Now, I impart that wisdom to virtually anyone I talk with who says they want to get lots of speaking opportunities.
You have to be proactive in your approach to getting on the platform. You will be well served in learning from those who have been there, done that.
With well over 20 years of professional speaking experience under my belt and an income many experts who dream of getting on the platform would love to have, I’ve made it my mission in 2016 to share as much about how to make money speaking as I possibly can. Beyond the money, I am committed to teaching experts how to influence, be considered thought leaders, and have the courage to speak their truth in ways that can literally change the world one audience at a time.
