I often get asked about the best way to get speaking gigs.
You can’t expect to speak on stages without preparation, so here are my top tips to being a successful speaker:
1. You must invest in yourself by paying someone to help you learn.
2. You must be prepared to put in the time, speaking at least 2 or 3 times a week.
3. You must position and package yourself so that people want to work with you.
I used to speak 200 days a year, not because I was good, but because I made a lot of mistakes and was willing to put in the time to learn from them and improve. I also invested thousands of dollars in coaches who taught me the most effective ways to sell from a stage.
Speaking gives you the ability to make more money in less time. Perhaps you don’t really want to speak but you want to raise your price points. This is going to be difficult unless you start speaking on Facebook lives, podcasts, stages and every opportunity you get because speaking is great leverage.
Would you rather spend time working for an hour with one person, or working with 90 people at once?
Some of you aren’t backing yourself and leveraging yourself which is why you’re burned out, and then when you do speak, you’re not trained in how to collapse time frames. This is why you need to back yourself and invest in a coach.
People often think that when they invest in a coach or programs that they’re investing in them, but actually they’re investing in themselves. They save time by learning to avoid common mistakes, and learn how to deliver in a clear and concise way that engages the audience and attracts sales.
Would you prefer to be making six figures in 90 minutes… or doing what you do now?
