The Speaking Industry is Not Dead

Yes, the speaking industry has dramatically changed. It seems like everything is going virtual. But, that doesn’t mean speaking is dead. There are way more opportunities today than ever. Motivation will never go away. Now, everything on my calendar for live events has been cancelled because of social distancing. What I have going for me is coaching/consulting and virtual presentations through Zoom. Of course, I don’t get paid 10K for a virtual presentation. But, the numbers add up. And other opportunities are surfacing. Besides, I don’t have to get on an airplane. That’s beautiful! I was gett ..read more

Anthony Robbins and Mike Tyson
Speaking For A Living

This interview shook me at my very core. The funny thing is, it’s one small section of it that got me. It’s the segment when Tyson was talking about his adopted father and coach Cus D’Amato. Tyson started crying uncontrollably as he recalled the man who transformed his life. It felt like the entire audience was crying. Anthony Robbins got very emotional. I got triggered emotionally because I never had that kind of person in my life. To this day, I don’t even know what my father looks like. I know he passed away some years ago. Mike Tyson credits Cus D’Amato for reinventing his life. As you m ..read more

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXJPLdHNjrI&t=1s TRANSCRIPTION OF THE VIDEO How to charge more for your services. That’s the question I get asked a lot.

You are underselling yourself. You have employees that you have to pay. You will have online services you have to pay. You have bills you have to pay. Yet, you are not charging enough to make a great living in your business. If you double your fee, you are going to attr ..read more

It’s What You Don’t Know You Don’t Know That’s Holding You Back
Speaking For A Living

Years ago when I started speaking, I was really excited. Maybe too excited. I was taking massive actions! I paid a bunch of people to coach me. I deprived myself of a lot to scramble for enough cash to pay those coaches. One of those coaches told me to put a brochure and business card inside all the bills I was writing a check for. He said to me since you are paying them, it’s a great idea to sell them as well. I followed his direction precisely as I was instructed. As soon as I would get out of bed, I would pull my daily goals and start implementing. Someone told me I needed to go and introd ..read more

Was I Lucky As A Motivational Speaker? Did I Have Connections?
Speaking For A Living
by Rene Godefroy
1y ago
This bird is not lucky. She builds the nest patiently against the odds. She had no connection. Persistence pays. I read a comment from one of my videos on Youtube. The guy was answering a couple of questions about luck and connections. Here’s part of his comment: “Are successful people luckier or smarter than failures?  My answer is yes, sometimes they are but not always or necessarily so.  Do they have the right connection or resources?  Again the answer is in many cases yes they do.” He is right. In some cases, luck has something to do with it. MY LONG REPLY: I started ..read more
