What is Really Takes to Succeed in the Speaking Business
You want more, right? More money, more time, and more quality of life… maybe not in that order. You want more confidence that no matter what happens in the markets, the economy, or the world that you can still achieve your goals, yes? Of course, who doesn’t?
Ironically, you also want less… less stress, less hassle, less problems. In order to get more… and less… you need more: more speeches, more training contracts, more consulting engagements, more coaching clients, and / or more book and learning resource revenue.
The answers, more or less, may be closer than you think.
