The biggest payoff of going through The Speaker Lab program was establishing a process. For example – HubSpot – it’s my go-to! As a speaker I’m reaching out to so many different people and need to prioritize my communication and the relationships which help me book gigs. Because of The Speaker Lab I have a process in place and the belief in myself that I can actually do this and make an impact.

Before enrolling in The Speaker Lab’s Elite program I knew that for me to live out my purpose in the best fashion I needed to focus on speaking more. I have experience speaking, but I needed a rinse and repeat system for getting and booked and paid gigs consistently. 

I also knew I had to stop being afraid. If I was going to do this as a career, I had to come face-to-face with the potential struggle and embrace the work and due diligence it would take to grow my speaking business.

I quickly realized The Speaker Lab was the best fit for what I needed. Other programs were more focused on helping people become better speakers — The Speaker Lab does this but also guides students through all the different facets of starting and building a speaking business.

I’m all about setting goals and I knew that in order to accomplish my goals I needed a coach. The Speaker Lab provides one-on-one coaching and experienced individuals who can help you grow from your positions of strength. 

One thing I recognized that I needed to learn was the ABCs and 123s of running a speaking business. I had to get up to speed on the processes that would make all of this work. 

The biggest payoff of going through The Speaker Lab program was establishing a process. For example – HubSpot – it’s my go-to! As a speaker I’m reaching out to so many different people and need to prioritize my communication and the relationships which help me book gigs. Because of The Speaker Lab I have a process in place and the belief in myself that I can actually do this and make an impact. 

Today, I use the framework TSL has trained and coached me through and I am getting booked and paid consistently. In fact, my calendar is getting more and more full for the upcoming year. And, I am happy to report my last gig was over $9k. 

If you’re thinking about becoming a student, know that once you have the framework from The Speaker Lab you will also build the confidence to believe in the process and stay focused. If you’re doing it the right way, and you’re delivering a good message, success will follow! The team at The Speaker Lab is here to help make that happen. 

I will be honest, you have to be ready to put in the work. I was ready to live-out that purpose and the opportunity to influence other people. I have always wanted to use my story and experiences to help others be the best they can be.

Something that I always share with my audience is the value of personal and professional investment. I couldn’t keep talking about it if I wasn’t going to make that commitment to myself, so that’s when I decided to make the investment in myself and my goals by signing up to the Booked and Paid To Speak Elite program.
