If I’m honest I think most of us dream of one day standing on stage, delivering the most epic talk of our life, to an audience that are just hanging on our every words.
Yet the jump between your current reality and making that happen can seem completely daunting.
So if you are thinking of becoming a paid speaker and spreading your message with the world, what steps do you actually need to take to land your first paid gig?
Luckily for you I bought in the highly likable and energetic Grant Baldwin who has spoken at 400 events and given literally thousands of presentations in conferences, assemblies, conventions and other events.
He’s also earned over $1 million dollars in speaking fees to date!
Grant always enjoyed speaking and helping other people. So much so that he actually went to Bible college and became a youth pastor!
After several months, he decided to start a career as a speaker. He worked hard and hustled to build his business and get booked to speak.
And let me tell you he reveals a wealth of information and advice on how you can go about doing this yourself today. So listen in now!
