Inside every adult is an instinctive desire to help and serve others. It's also part of our nature to want to do things that keep us engaged and excited about getting up in the morning. If you've figured out how to bring this balance into your life, others will want to hear about the information, ideas, knowledge and strategies you've used to build and live a more fulfilling life.
You are an expert at something, and we all possess knowledge or information that can help others. We just don't always have the opportunity to share it because we spent most of our time working to achieve other people's agendas. It doesn't have to be that way.
In this program you'll learn how to combine your knowledge and passion to share, educate, inspire or entertain others as a professional speaker. You'll learn easy steps for developing and organizing your message, finding your audiences, building a speaking business, and presenting yourself as the kind of professional people look forward to working with and listening to.
Now is the time to tap into your passion and develop it into an expertise you can move From the Soapbox to the Stage!
