Speaker’s Mentoring Program

Posted by: | Comments (0)

There are thousands of professional speakers, yet very few

of them earn much money. The average full-time speaker earns less than $100,000 per year,

in a business where that’s often a days pay. I was lucky to have three of the best mentors in the

business: Bill Gove, Bob Proctor and Larry Wilson. Whatever success I’ve enjoyed, I owe to them.

Now I’m looking for apprentices to pass on the strategies that I’ve used to earn millions on the

platform. If interested, watch this 3-minute video I shot at Bona Allen Mansion. If you like what you

Motivational Speaker?

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Are you a motivational speaker or a subject matter expert? There are different speakers that fill different roles at meetings and conventions. The more clearly you can define what type of speaker you are, the easier it is to market yourself. And if you’re being represented by an agency like Georgia Speakers Bureau, it will get a lot more bookings. Watch this short video (3-minutes) and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Speaker’s Practice Schedule

Posted by: | Comments (11)

Professional athletes practice every day. So do professional musicians, actors, singers, guitar players, jugglers, magicians, etc. But what about professional speakers? The top speakers practice every day, but many middle of the road speakers don’t. New and emerging speakers spend more time worrying about marketing themselves than they do on building world-class speaking skills. Many speakers grossly overrate their platform skills and end up confounded when they can’t get booked. Watch this short video (3-minutes) that I taped in the Guitar Room at the Bona Allen Mansion. I’ll forward to your comments.

Getting on TV and Radio?

Posted by: | Comments (3)

The fastest way to get your message out to millions of people is through the mass media. Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media are great, but ANYONE can broadcast on those mediums, which means they have little credibility in the speaking business marketplace. Last week I kicked off a 9-month mass media tour for my new book, Secrets Self-Made Millionaires Teach Their Kids. I did TV interviews in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Champaign Illinois, Chicago and St. Louis. Watch this short video on getting yourself in the media and if you’re interested, here’s my interview on WGN-TV in Chicago this week.

Speaker’s #1 Demo Video Mistake

Posted by: | Comments (0)

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.)

Speaking in the Media

Posted 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.

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

Posted 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.
