I really struggled with believing that I could be a professional speaker, but The Speaker Lab helped me see that others out there are doing it. And they are no different then me, so why can't I.
Tell us about yourself; who are you and what do you do for fun?
I am someone who lives rich by loving hard, laughing often, and leading others to do the same. My # 1 passion is helping others, and I spend a majority of my time speaking, mentoring others to find their voice, and working with charitable organizations.
What got you into speaking? Is it what you expected?
I love seeing audience reactions when they have that “ah ha” moment, and the light bulb turns on for them. If others can learn from my stories, and my experiences (good and bad), then why not offer my help to see them prosper in their lives.
Tell us about your hardest moment as a speaker so far.
My hardest moments have been trying to get started on the business side of speaking, website development, marketing, finding gigs, etc. while still working a full time J-O-B.
What has been your biggest success as a speaker so far?
My biggest success so far has been finishing my first paid gig.
What was your biggest struggle before finding The Speaker Lab?
Before The Speaker Lab, I really struggled with believing that I could be a professional speaker.
How has The Speaker Lab helped you and your business?
The Speaker Lab helped me see that others out there are doing it, and they are no different then me, so why can’t I.
What is your number one goal over the next 6 months to a year?
My number one goal over the next 6 months to a year is getting my website up and running, and start sending out emails for gigs.
