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.

He was a powerhouse on the platform. He was a thought leader. When he spoke hundreds and sometimes thousands of people gathered to hear his message. He altered the course of America, and he did it all through his amazing skills as a public speaker. Can you guess who this forgotten hero is? Watch this short video I taped yesterday in one of America’s most famous graveyards.

Speakers: Please Read/Watch

Posted by: | Comments (3)

Your dream of sharing your message with the world is most likely only a few good decisions away. Unfortunately, most speakers never make them. They buy into the speakers “get rich quick philosophy”, write bad books no one will buy or begin calling themselves professional speakers without formal training. The speaking industry is littered with talented speakers who toiled for years, and sometimes even decades trying to figure the magic formula of the million-dollar speakers. Make no mistake: the formula exists, but it has nothing to do with magic. The formula is a mixture of relevant content, platform prowess, marketing savvy and sales skill. Gaming the system by becoming an Amazon best-seller for 20-minutes by bribing your friends, family and fans to all buy your book on the same day has nothing to do with it. Winning Toastmasters trophies, and even the Toastmasters World Championship of Speaking, won’t help either. Nor will marketing gimmicks like hosting internet radio shows no one is listening to, cold calling speakers bureau’s before you’re successful or inundating people with promotional pieces through social media. The ONLY people profiting from these pseudo-strategies are the marketers who peddle them to new, naive and unsuspecting speakers. The good news is if you follow a solid speaker marketing plan, you have a serious shot at being successful. No guarantees. This is a tough business and the odds are against you. That being said, new speakers break into this business every year and some even become stars in their niche markets. My first year in the business was 1996, and I lost over $50,000 paying for advice from snake oil salesman selling flashy advice on how to make it big as a speaker. Then I attended the Bill Gove Speech Workshop and met the great Bill Gove, the first President of the National Speakers Association and one of the most successful keynote speakers of all-time. Bill taught me the platform skills that put me on stage in arena’s with 10,000, 15,000 and 20,000 people in the audience. Next he introduced me to the Toronto Tornado, the great Bob Proctor, who taught me how to become a millionaire in this business by learning how to think like one. And then Bill introduced me to the genius of personal development, the great Larry Wilson, who built Wilson Learning into the 2nd largest training company in the world. These three men mentored me for years and showed me the secrets of the speaking business. They showed me how to sell speaking, training and consulting contracts to the largest corporations in the world. They showed me how to leverage the mass media and get my message out to millions. They showed me how to to build a business that could be sold for millions. No hocus-pocus. No gimmicks. No marketing gambits. Just solid strategies to create value for corporate and public market clients. I’ve been asked to share this wealth of knowledge for years, but my schedule is packed and it’s hard to find time. I haven’t done a speaker marketing seminar since 2007. 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.
