Would love to hear comments about how "speaking" to a camera is different from speaking to a live audience.

Rick, the training's won't be in Spain anymore. It's at the company's other offices. I'll be training in Greece, Australia, France, Mexico, Hong Kong, and Germany. 

Comment by Rick Seigmund on October 9, 2015 at 3:11pm

Way to go Kimanzi!! What an incredible opportunity you have in front of you! Will it require multiple trips to Spain throughout the year? Can you "batch" the training into a single trip or two? Very excited for you!

Greetings from Amsterdam/Madrid, Spain! I speak here on Monday, but today I had a chance to sit down with the CEO of the company that hired me to speak. On this trip, I'm training at two of the company's eight offices. My goal was to talk to him about training at the others. He was way ahead of me. 

He came to the meeting with a contract for $80,000 plus all expenses to train at the company's other six offices over the next year or so. I was speechless. The lesson I took away from our lunch, and the last two months, in general, is that there's plenty of opportunity when you think bigger! These opportunities aren't just coming my way. If you're my friend on Facebook, you've seen that in the last two weeks, three of my coaching clients have signed $165,000 in consulting contracts. Keep chasing those big dreams, it's worth it :)

Kimanzi that is just inspiring my friend. THANK YOU for the great dose of inspiration! 

All, if you are looking to move forward in your speaking and haven't attended Kent's SIF camp, GO! I attended a conference this past week and it struck me how far I have come since earning my first speaking dollar in April 2013. It seems like a LONG time looking at where I wanted to be when I was stuck in a j.o.b. that was sucking the life out of me and trying to build a business after just having written 3 Amazon top 100 books in a year (while being mom to four, working full time with a 2 hour daily commute, etc.), however looking back it really has been a relatively short journey. 

Anytime you can invest in your speaking business it is worth it. Whether it is through Kent's SIF, Jill Davis' DISC training, Jane Atkinson's speaker program, Dan Miller's Coaching with Excellence, etc. it is worth it. I just spent $200 on a conference yesterday that frankly I could have taught, however the connections I made will be absolutely pivotal in moving me forward so even if you invest for the connections alone it can be totally worth it. 

Just sent out a note to the 48day.net group about some of the upcoming interviews we will be hosting - be sure to keep your eye out of these as I think you will find them very valuable in what you are doing with your speaking business. 

Here is to all of us moving forward gang!!!

Just an FYI...

Killer Keynote Experience is officially half full. Open for only 8 people, so don't wait or you'll miss out.

I guarantee you will walk away having deliver your own, unique keynote without using notes. It's amazing to experience! Just ask Jill Davis, Jen McDonough, Jeff McManus, Jerome Wade, and Brenda Nevitt. They all attended this last year and they are ALL getting paid to speak.

I'm hoping on a plane tomorrow to speak at a company in Spain, and then fly to speak at their other office in Morocco. I come back and then head to speak at a company in Tel Aviv, Israel 10 days later. It's going to be a lot of travel, but I love being able to do this full-time :) Just got done with my slides!

Comment by Jeff Jones on October 5, 2015 at 9:10am

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!
