Get Paid to Speak on “How Millionaires Protect Their Money”

While most of the professional speaking world is in free fall, the topic of money is hotter than ever. 95% of the U.S. population is financially illiterate, and they’re starving for education.

Million Dollar Speaker Mentor…For FREE?

I often look back on my 23-year professional speaking career in amazement. I was fortunate enough to exceed every hope and dream I ever had as an international best selling author and speaker.

Launch Your Speaking Career in 2021

2021 is THE year to launch your professional speaking career. The reason is simple: thousands of professional speakers have gone out of business, given up and crawled back to the corporate world.

As a Man Thinketh, by James Allen. Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill. How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie.

Publicity Strategy for Speakers

Speakers ask me all the time how we get so much publicity, and I tell them we’ve had a professional publicist for the past 10 years. The biggest mistake speakers make is trying to do their own publicity. They do it because they can’t afford a publicist, when they should be focused on building their...

The Speaker Has No Clothes

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed many professional speakers as slot fillers for meetings, something everyone inside the industry has known for years. A high percentage of speakers have a 40-minute speech and a pamphlet they call a book, which is largely a regurgitation of their life story or speech. A small minority of speakers are...

Why Speaker’s Should Mount a National Media Campaign

Since 2009, I’ve been doing between 50-250 interviews in the press every year, including op-eds, articles and features.
