Speaking to Get Clients – Annoyed with the Speaker

Do you want to use speaking as a way to get clients?  Do you ever feel annoyed with the speaker on stage?

Have you ever been sitting in the audience listening to the person speaking and think: “I could deliver that speech better than they are.”

 To be honest, I have.  Even to the point of being annoyed at having to listen to a poorly executed speech, wasting my time and theirs.  This annoyance is exactly what spurred me to start speaking.  To put myself out there and take the stage.

The good news is, you don’t have to sit in the audience you CAN take the stage… even the big stages.  It’s just a matter of commitment to sharing your message and willingness to do what it takes to get on the stage.  Let me ask is your desire bigger than your fear?  Because your audience is waiting on you… it needs you…

Watch the video to be inspired to take action and share in the comment area on what is driving you forward to take the stage?
