Professional Speakers Dream Venues

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Have you made a list of your dream audiences and venues? Maybe you want to speak to 1,000 people. Maybe 5,000. Maybe even 20,000! In which world-class venues do you dream of speaking in? Carnegie Hall? Madison Square Garden? Georgia Dome? When I started speaking for fees over 20 years ago, the largest audience I had ever spoken to was 300 people…for about 30 seconds! And the venue was a Holiday Inn! Watch this short video (2:42) on this subject that I shot at my ultimate dream venue!

Speaking at The Vatican

Posted by: | Comments (2)

As a professional or emerging professional speaker, how much do you believe in your message? Your level of belief will have a major impact on your audience response, and ultimately, on your speaking career. Watch this short video I shot at The Vatican a few days ago and I”ll look forward to your comments. (In the video I mistakenly say I’m in Rome, Italy, when I’m actually in Vatican City… apologies to my Catholic friends!)

Public criticism comes with being a thought leader in your area of expertise. It’s part of the job. The paradox of public criticism is that the more you are criticized, the more publicity you get and the more popular you become with your fan base. Critics, for all intents and purposes, are your friends. Welcome to the twisted world of being a public figure! :) Watch this short video on taking a stand (as a speaker) and enduring criticism.

Why Speakers Fail

Posted by: | Comments (1)

An astounding number of smart, educated, successful people attempt to break into the professional speaking business every year, yet only a tiny fraction ever earn a penny for delivering a speech. And I’m not talking about the nice, but naive people who follow the internet marketers, speaker trainers, and other charlatans who tell them they can write a book in 30 days and get paid to speak in a week. I’m talking about sophisticated businesspeople with 6-7 figure incomes. Even the ones who license the intellectual property of famous authors, ministers, and motivational speakers, rarely ever break through. There’s a reason, and in this video, I explain it, and the solution you can follow to insure your success in this business.

Speakers: Study Leadership

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Leadership is one of the most important topics you can study as a speaker. Every audience craves leadership lessons, and thats why it’s critical to stay current on the most recent books on the subject. I’m recommending (2) in 2015. One is called Leadership Sales Coaching, by Jason Forrest and the other is Seven Disciplines of a Leader, by Jeff Wolf. Both men are world-class speakers on the subject and their books are excellent. Watch this short video I taped on them and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Speakers: Study Money

Posted by: | Comments (0)

One of the most important topics to audiences is money. How to earn it, invest it and grow it. Thats why I strongly recommend building a solid foundation of wealth building strategies to share. Read books, attend seminars, consult experts and most importantly, read the Wall Street Journal to keep up on whats happening in the world of economics, finance and investing. I also recommend attending investment conferences, where you can stay on top of the latest trends. Watch this short video (2 min) I shot at The Money Show in Orlando and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Speakers Needed Immediately!

Posted by: | Comments (7)

If you’re serious about launching your speaking career immediately, this is the best opportunity you will (most likely) ever have. I will teach you how to market, sell, deliver and earn millions in this business, just as I have for the past 19 years, and I’m willing to split my $20,000 speaking fee with you while you learn. I guarantee that no other million dollar speaker in the business will make you this offer, now or in the future. I know because many of them are laughing at me for doing it, and calling me naive for bringing rookie speakers onstage with me. And if my story were different, I wouldn’t be doing it. But it’s not. I was the apprentice of the late Bill Gove, the father of professional speaking, and he made my career by bringing me on stage, teaching me how to market/sell to Fortune 500 companies and introducing me to the biggest names in the business. People called him crazy for doing this, but luckily he ignored them and mentored me the way I want to mentor you. The bottom line is you can read all the speaking books ever written, attend all the seminars and join all the speaker associations, and the odds of you succeeding in this business on your own are still scarily slim. And I’m NOT being negative. I’m simply presenting industry facts and statistics. Thats why you see the same speakers at the top year after year: very few speakers are newly minted success stories due to the complexity of the business. The so-called speaker marketers are lying when they tell you it’s easy to make it. The statistics show that the odds of becoming a 6-7 figure speaker one your own are about the same as moving to Hollywood without connections and becoming a 6-7 figure actor. The only intelligent strategy is to level the playing field and even the odds. I can’t make you successful, but I can hold your hand and show you the step by step process it takes to make it, and that should be all you need to insure your success. Watch this short video I taped at FOX 5 News in Las Vegas, and if you’re interested in applying for this unprecedented opportunity, visit www.speakersapprentice.com  The DEADLINE to APPLY is Friday, January 30, 2015 at midnight EST.
