You’ve just begun your professional speaking career – CONGRATULATIONS!!
You’ve created your presentations that you’re ready to get paid for, started looking for events/organizations you can speak at, and have been passing your business card to anyone and everyone you come in contact with.
Sooo…why are the engagements not happening?
It could be for any number of reasons, but I have five mistakes that stick out in my mind that new speakers make.
In no particular order:
Some of these were mistakes that I made early on in my business, so I can definitely speak from experience! The good news is that these are all areas you can easily start tackling today. Did any of these stand out to you? Or, if you’re an experienced speaker – what else would you add to help emerging speakers? Comment below!
To your success,
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
