I've done over 400 free speaking engagements for corporations, in exchange for the opportunity to promote my services (personal training). Now, I'd like to start doing paid speaking gigs. I've done 4 paid speaking engagements in the past, but they kind of just fell into my lap. I'd like to be more deliberate about it.
You will have to train under someone who knows the process and is experienced in getting the foundation of paid engagements platform. To eliminate the guess work and to prevent spinning your wheels and the run around game, I suggest contacting Eric Anderson, www.ericandersonlive.com and have a consult with him and then make your necessary moves for proceeding forward in your career. Best regards.
