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.

Speaker’s Apprentice Opportunity

Posted by: | Comments (1)

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

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.

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.
