You have to focus on adding value. It's constant. You can't do it once or twice and think you are done. It's a process and a mindset. You can't ask for a kiss on the first date. You have to prove to the client that you are someone they can trust but adding value and being consistent in what you do. THEN, they will be willing to buy into who you are as a speaker.

Thanks, Kent! 

I've been focused on growing my consulting business for the past 16 months but am excited to be kicking it up a notch with my coaching and speaking. Going to be a great year and I'm excited I finally joined the 48days community!

Welcome to the group, David. And congrats on the speaking engagement.

Also, I checked out your website. Nice job!

I'm excited to see you as a member of this group. I look forward to you bringing the "value of special" to our community!

Comment by David A Pride on Wednesday

I'm new to this group but thought I'd share a funny story...I received a lead via Twitter 3 days ago about a conference in the "near future" who needed a social media speaker. I responded and turns out the event is next week! Talk about short notice!

Anyhow, it's a great paying gig and in front of a good crowd - guess we always need to be prepared!

I have some great news to share. It took a year, but I was able to secure an interview from the guy who is the top person in my field, music education.

Thank you for the feedback regarding Toastmasters.
Comment by Barry Thompson on September 21, 2015 at 8:27pm


I am in Toastmasters and the community is awesome. I have learned some much about myself during this time. Not to mention the practice and feedback from my speeches. 


Comment by Tom Henricksen on September 21, 2015 at 7:23pm


I have found Toastmasters to be very helpful for me as a great training and testing area for my speeches. I usually will run through my speeches at my Toastmasters club and get helpful feedback.
