“You’re NOT Just Speaking.
You’re Running a BUSINESS!”
By James Malinchak
Did you know that according to small business statistics, most small businesses are out of business within the 12-18 months of starting?
You may be wondering, “So what does this have to do with me?”
It’s quite simple.
You need to understand one VERY important fact about being a speaker, which is:
“You are running a BUSINESS!”
That’s right!…a business! And every business is in business to do what? That’s right!…generate revenue…make a profit.
So then wouldn’t it make sense to focus on:
“Extracting as much revenue from every transaction?”
The answer is YES!
See, there’s so much more to this game than simply speak and get paid. That’s thinking like a speaker. I want you to change how you view yourself. Don’t think like a speaker, think like a marketer! If you do, then I guarantee you will make A LOT more money.
My way of thinking about speaking engagements is:
“Get booked, then look for ways to make as much money as possible from EVERY booking!”
That’s how you need to be thinking, too! Make the decision to adopt this mindset and force yourself to practice implementing it over and over until it becomes a habit.
And, if you do, you’ll make more money as a speaker than you ever dreamed possible!
