How to Become a Public Speaker
Warning: What You MUST Know About How To Succeed in Speaking…
You’re probably going to disagree with me at first, but what I’m about to tell you will save you a lot of time, money, and heartache if you have a desire to be a public speaker or make money speaking.
Just hear me out and then take some time to think about it and sleep on what I’m about to tell you – really let it sink in and digest it.
What I’m about to share with you comes from many years of doing speaking and seminars, from wild successes and terrible failures.
Ready? Okay, here we go – I’m going to keep it brief and to the point, so forgive me if this sounds a bit tough:
Becoming a successful public speaker has nothing to do with your passion, your story, or how “great” your speaking skills are or become.
The only, and I mean only, think that really matters, is this: Do people – lots of people – want to hear what you have to say?
Now, you’re probably full of inspiration and passion so you’re going to say “yes!, of course!”
Maybe your friends and relatives have told you your story needs to be told, or you have charisma, or maybe you discovered your passion or self-improvement and you’re ready to share that with the world.
You’re going to fall flat on your face unless people really, really want to hear what you have to say. It’s extremely rare that someone is so amazingly great at speaking that people flock to them “just because”.
Unless you’re a celebrity or famous athlete or otherwise famous, you’re not going to draw a crowd “just because”.
What you need to succeed doing speaking or seminars is “large lakes full of hungry fish”.
If you’ve read this far and want to know some of the real-world skills you’ll need to succeed even if you do have an audience hungry for what you have to say, then be sure to grab my 7 day course right now.
I wish you the best, and I hope you’ll take what I’ve just told you seriously – it will save you a ton of wasted time, money, and pain.
