The speaking business is made up of thought leaders and thought followers. Bill Gove was a thought leader. Larry Wilson was a thought leader. Bob Proctor is a thought leader. Most speakers are simply regurgitating the thoughts of others. The question is, are you REALLY a thought leader? What differentiates you from other speakers? What is your unique point of view on your subject of expertise? Have you taken a clear and bold position that establishes you as a thought leader? These are among the most important questions all speakers must answer. Watch this short video I taped in Minneapolis after attending the funeral of the great Larry Wilson, the man who mentored me on this concept for 17 years.

I’ve been lucky enough in the past 17 years to share the stage with the biggest names in the business, and this post is the first in a series of tributes to the one skill or technique that made makes them so unique. I start with the best of the best, none other than the great Larry Wilson. When Larry is on fire in front of a group, it’s a mystical experience. I’ve never seen anyone connect at a higher level to the toughest, most sophisticated audiences. When Larry Wilson speaks, corporate America’s biggest executives listen. Watch this short video and I’ll look forward to your comments. Steve Siebold

Imagine becoming a Million Dollar Professional Speaker in 2013. One of my students made the leap in 2012, grossing over $1.6 million. Once you understand the revenue-driving fundamentals of this business, the income potential is substantial. I’m excited to announce a new book that has been released on this subject. St. Paul, Minnesota based author Elliot Saltzman interviewed me over an 8-month period this year and his new book, How to Become a Million Dollar Speaker: The Steve Siebold Story, is now available. Elliot caught me on good days, bad days and everything in between on the road speaking and the result is a book that dissects the good, bad and ugly of this business in a way no author has ever told it. If you’re ready to make the million dollar leap in 2013, this book is for you. You can find it on Amazon. I’ll be speaking at the Florida Speakers Association on Saturday, January 12, 2013 in Ft. Lauderdale. Tickets are available at http://www.florida-speakers.org/ Use this code by Dec. 31 for discount tickets: TMjan

The speaking business in owned by insiders. People attempting to build a speaking career in traditional, linear fashion almost always fail. This is a topic you won’t hear at speakers meetings because most of the people in leadership positions are on the outside. Watch this short video ( 1:33 ) I shot after speaking in Boston. I’ll look forward to your comments.
