How to Become a Master Speaker

With Erick Rheam

We have big news: we’re launching a new program at The Speaker Lab. In this podcast episode, Grant is joined by Erick Rheam to tell you all about our Master Speaker Program: what it entails, who it’s for, and how it can help you scale your speaking business.

This program is our first ever offering for established speakers. If you’re not sure whether that describes you, Erick and Grant give a quick overview of the phases of a speaking business (beginner, emerging, and established). As Erick and Grant explain in detail, established speakers are those who have a good handle on the speaking industry, but are struggling to scale, systematize, and prioritize.

Maybe you’ve been speaking for a year or more, but struggle knowing when to say “no” to gigs that aren’t quite in your preferred niche. Maybe you’re overwhelmed by the financial and accounting side of speaking and don’t know how to plan for a more profitable year. Maybe you make a lot of money speaking, but are tired of all the travel and want to channel your message into new sources of passive income so you can spend more time with your family. If that sounds like you, this episode includes some great information about strategies for optimizing your speaking business moving forward! And if that piques your interest, our new Master Speaker program will help you accomplish those strategies with the help of community, mentorship, and accountability.

You’ll also hear all about:

  • Four pillars of success that will help you master the third phase of your speaking business.
  • How to improve your initial communication with prospects so you can land gigs earlier in the pipeline.
  • How to manage your cash flow so you don’t feel like you’re swinging on a pendulum between profit and loss each month.
  • The benefits that live coaching, mentorship, and community offer established speakers.
  • And so much more!
