I recently interviewed James Malilnchak on “I HAVE TODAY.” James is one of my coaches and mentors, he’s the Founder of BigMoneySpeaker.com, he’s one of the stars on the Hit TV ABC Series “Secret Millionaire” where he lived on less than $45/week and powerfully impacted the lives of so many by giving away checks to help support their dreams!
During this episode, we talked about Motivational Speaker Secrets, Speaking for a Living, How to Build a Speaking Business, and how to MAKE MONEY AS A SPEAKER!
James is an expert, having been on over 3,000 stages and coaching over 1,000 clients.
You need to tune in to this episode if you have a story, a book, or are an expert with a desire to speak from the stage and get paid well to do it.
What James and I discussed was that most people only focus on “one side of the coin.” That is why there are so many frustrated speakers and experts out there, who are basically giving away their expertise for free!
We also talked about how many people approach writing a book or creating their signature talk BACKWARDS!
Here are 3 Secrets to being a sought after MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER and how to be IN DEMAND:
- Being on Stage is just the Icing on the Cake
According to James, most people focus only on the speech part. They do not put in the work necessary to actually get booked consistently. It’s work. It IS a Job. He calls it the AIC part of the job.
2. Your Message Comes Second
Most of the clients James works with, and frankly, the ones I work with too, are focused on their story and their message, and they don’t take into consideration who their audience is. Your story and message aren’t about you…it’s about how you can serve the audience. So, identify who you want to speak to FIRST, then write your message to speak to that audience.
3. Stop Speaking for Free
When you first start out, it’s fine to speak for free to get the experience. But, don’t do that for long! Don’t give away your value for free!
Are you ready to start getting paid to speak? Then, tune in to this episode to learn the Secrets from the Big Money Speaker himself, James Malinchak.
