Since word got out a few months ago about the launch of Georgia Speaker’s Bureau, we’ve been bombarded with unsolicited demo videos from speakers. We’ve watched as many as we can, but most of the speakers make the same grave error in their video production that leads us to turn it off and exclude them for representation. Watch this short video (3 minutes) for the full explanation and how you can avoid it. (Note: please don’t send us unsolicited demo videos. We’re not accepting any more of them right now.)

Since opening the Georgia Speaker’s Bureau, we’ve been flooded by emails from so many speaker’s that we’ve had to stop taking inquiries. We’ve also had tons of calls from Atlanta-based companies asking for our services. The reason speaker’s get turned down for speeches is the same thing over and over. As a matter of fact, you could add up the next 10 reasons and it wouldn’t equal the #1 reason. This is a BIG deal. I always knew it was huge, but until we opened the speaker’s bureau, I didn’t realize just how many speaker’s made this mistake. Watch this short (3 minutes) video I shot in my office at the Mansion, and see if you’re falling into this trap.

Where Is Your 3rd Place?

By · Comments (0)

Professional speaking is a career of creativity. That’s one of the reasons I love it so much. You are constantly challenged to create new ideas, speeches, books, articles, products, programs, media angles, marketing pieces, sales scripts, blog posts, and a host other things that make up our business. It’s so much fun, and we actually get paid to do it! About 20 years ago, I was at an NSA meeting when I heard this speaker talk about the power of having a “3rd Place,” and it was a game changer for me. Watch this short (1:30) video I shot in San Pedro, Belize, last night and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Speaking in the Media

By · Comments (0)

Getting in the media can catapult your speaking career, yet very few speakers understand this. Being interviewed on TV, radio, and in print gives you and your message a level of credibility that is difficult to get in any other way. In just the past 72 hours, I’ve been interviewed on TV, radio and in print for the Wall Street Journal, FOX News, CNBC, Yahoo Finance, MSNBC and about 6 others, for my new book, Secrets Self-Made Millionaires Teach Their Kids. If you’re serious about getting your message out to millions of people and super sizing your speaking career, watch this short video I taped backstage in the green room minutes before my FOX 57 TV interview in Columbia, South Carolina.

Bill Gove, the father of professional speaking, was my mentor. I served as his apprentice for 5 years, and it changed my life. In 5 years I went from losing over $50,000 to earning over $1M. Now its 20 years later, and I’m searching for my own apprentice. If you think you have what it takes to succeed as a speaker, Watch this 2-minute video. After that visit www.SpeakersApprentice.com

How To Make Money Selling Books

By · Comments (0)

After writing 10 books over the course of my speaking career, one of the questions I get asked most often is “How do you make money on books?” The average speaker sells 250 copies of their books. The rest end up in the garage with the lawn mower and the rakes. Obviously you must write a good book that people are willing to pay for and recommend. I’ve written books I was proud of, yet few people were willing to pay to read them. Other books I’ve written have made millions. But once you’ve written a good book that your fan base will support, there are a few strategies that can help you earn money fast. Watch this video to learn a couple of ideas that have worked for me.
