Motivational SPEAKER 101

Motivational SPEAKER 101 is not about me, but about the people that I meet and greet on a daily basis who have an interest in finding out how to not only get speaking engagements but also how to be able to make the most out of each and every opportunity that comes their way.


After 20 years I still get calls to speak at schools, colleges and corporations. There are no guarantees in this business, if you are ever promised that please start running as fast as you can.


Motivational SPEAKER 101 will be kept simple and to the point so that you have some strategies that you can put into place immediately to get a feel to see if being a Motivational SPEAKER is something that you want to pursue at this time.


The intent is to make this guide easy to read while providing cost effective tips to give you an opportunity to move forward with one of your dreams.


Cost effective is important because you can go to training after training, never get what you need, never see the results that you want, and at the same time spend thousands of dollars attending seminars and workshops.


After reading Motivational SPEAKER 101 and activating the ideas in this book if you decide not to pursue this dream you will only be out of the cost of this eBook and the time that you put into it.


Through the word SPEAKER you will learn how to better develop your:









Network with Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes to become a better Motivational SPEAKER.
