Our Next Meeting
Have you found yourself struggling to get paid gigs and relying on those gigs for a significant portion of your income?
Do you want to supplement with products or services? No one likes selling from stage– it’s inauthentic, not to mention that it’s often not allowed. By the end of this session, you will understand a proven process for creating a Rapid Growth speaking business that generates five figures per event– even free events, without ever selling from the stage.
This program will help you:
1. Develop a true Rapid Growth speaking business by:
- Crafting a unified message that excites meeting professionals and inspires them to want to know more
- Discovering a lucrative niche market
- Building a no-pressure sales system that actually works
2. Learn how to sell five figures from every stage without ever having to actually “sell”- even from free events
3. Put an end to being “just” a speaker and instead generate multiple income sources
