I have met many people who have confessed to me that deep down inside they wanted to be a motivational speaker. Are you one of them? Do you listen to professional speakers like Anthony Robbins, Ziglar, Les Brown or John Maxwell? Do you think you have what it takes? You probably do. A great quote from author, Richard Bach says, “You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.” That’s the hard part.
As a speaker’s bureau, I get numerous calls from men and women wishing to get started in the speaking industry. They come from assorted backgrounds with varying levels of experience. When I ask them what they speak about, their typical response is, “Anything you want.” Sorry, but this is not going to get you many speaking engagements. You need to get focused. So, grab a pencil and let’s get planning. As you know, a little planning can go a long way.
