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.

Professional Speakers: Starting Over

Posted by: | Comments (7)

If you’ve struggled to get your professional speaking career off the ground, or you’re not happy with your current level of success in the business, don’t feel bad. You’re in the majority. This is a VERY tough business. While it’s possible to make it, it can be quite a challenge. Most of the 3,000 plus speakers who call our office every year for career advice are going down the wrong path, following the wrong people or promoting the wrong topic. Before I met great Bill Gove in 1996 and attended his keynote speech workshop, I was making the same mistakes. Luckily, Bill set me straight and my career blossomed. So consider the idea of starting over, like we used to as kids. The “do-over” might be exactly what you need. Watch this short video I taped at Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Mass. and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Professional Speakers: Study History

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Professional speakers, at the highest level, are seen as thought leaders. That means we need to be one step ahead of our audiences in as many areas as possible. The lessons that can be drawn from history is a great place to start, and the more you know about history, the better. Watch this short video (2:10) I taped at Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia, which was home to one of the most significant battles of the Civil War. I’ll look forward to your comments.

Last Chance for Speakers

Posted by: | Comments (5)

On May 31-June 1, 2014, I’m going to conduct one final speaker marketing seminar for the people who’ve been begging me to do it for years. This 2-day program will be an intense, content heavy program where I’ll share everything I’ve learned during my 18-years in this business. I’ve kept the price extremely low so anyone can afford it, and I’m even encouraging you to bring a friend for free. Watch this short video and I hope to meet you face to face at the seminar. This seminar is almost sold-out. Register today at www.milliondollarspeakerseminar.com

What Differentiates You as a Speaker?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Notice how the same professional speakers dominate the industry year after year? A key reason is most new speakers fail to differentiate themselves and get swallowed in the abyss of the 50,000 people attempting to enter the industry every year in the United States. The solution is creating a unique point of view and the platform skill to deliver it at the professional level. Watch this short video I taped after my interview on The Morning Show in Jacksonville, Florida.

Speaking at the Playboy Mansion

Posted by: | Comments (5)

Hugh Hefner has pushed the envelope in his field for over 50 years, and he’s still going strong at 87 years old. Are you pushing the envelope on your topic or are you simply repeating positive thinking platitudes like 95% of the speakers in the business? Watch this video I shot LIVE at Hef’s Halloween Party at the Playboy Mansion last Saturday night, and I’ll look forward to your comments.
