So You Want To Be A Professional Speaker?

So You Want To Be A Professional Speaker…But Don’t Know What To Do or How To Get Started?

 

If you don’t know, I’m a professional speaker. This doesn’t mean I make all my income from speaking or that I’m on the road 200+ nights a year (I wouldn’t want that). It simply means I make a significant amount of my income via speaking, and I do get to travel around the country a fair amount.

Over the years, a lot of people have asked me questions like:

  • If I want to do what you are doing, how do I get started?
  • How did you go about getting your first paid speaking engagement?
  • Is it hard to get booked?
  • What do you do to market your speaking services?

Long story short, because questions like these were being asked of me over and over, I started the Speak It Forward Boot Camp three years ago. It’s been a great success, and if you’re interested, the next one is May 17-18 in the Atlanta-area. I’d love to have you join us!

In fact, a couple of friends of mine will be attending, and they are doing something really exclusive the evening before the Boot Camp gets started. It’s only open to six people, and I believe two of those spots have already been filled.

You can find out more about it here.

Additionally, they took the time to interview me about how I got into speaking, what I enjoy most about being a professional speaker, and more. The interview is loaded with excellent information that I know you’ll enjoy, so I hope you’ll listen in (use the link above to hear the interview as well).
