Insider secrets of what works today in
BUSINESS of professional speaking!
If two World Champions could help you achieve more in the
next four months, than you've achieved in the last four years combined, would you spend 2 1/2 days
with them to find out how?
We have developed a way to literally catapult your career to the next level. You can literally leave this two-day event with your own, brand new product in hand. Yes, your own. We told you that you wouldn't believe it …
Have you been "thinking" about getting started SOMEDAY?
Not sure where to start?
PERFECT! We'll show you how to get started quickly in this market. There's a lot you can do that doesn't cost you a penny... if you know what to do and how to do it. We'll show you!
Have you been speaking for a while
and just not earning enough?
Even BETTER! The speaking industry has changed a great deal in the past 10 years. What worked a decade ago may not work today.
For example, social media was non-existent when they each started their careers, now it is a crucial of their business and will be for you. It is not enough to be on “social” media, first you must know why and how to approach social media. Without the proper first step and understanding what you are truly trying to accomplish your efforts could be for nothing, but some causal Facebook friends.
If your calendar is not full of speaking engagements or you're not earning the income you'd like, you simply must join us at the next GET PAID TO SPEAK BY NEXT WEEK Champ Camp!
Sound too good to be true?
Don't take our word for it!
Listen to others who invested in our previous Champ Camps!
There was a time when none of the World Champs were professional speakers. Most people do not know, they were all started their careers long before they won the speech contest.
We have to get started sometime and somewhere. We all chose different paths and we all have different "business models." The exciting part is we are constantly learning new marketing tips and techniques that work, and you can get in on them. Now, you will get insight into what is working for us that can help you with your career, and, more importantly, avoid the time and money wasters that stop most careers and frustrate most speakers.
Why is this important to you?
Simple. Have you gotten more than your value every time you've heard one of us speak? This is the greatest opportunity to learn the business side of speaking and literally take the next steps to get you where you want to go. The two of us became World Champions because we were incredible "sponges" who learned from the best. None of us wrote a best-selling book to become an instant success. We all created our careers step-by-step. We care about your success, so you are invited to sponge from us!
Here's the problem... and it's three-fold:
Call us crazy, but both of us meet people from around the world who dream of someday being a professional speaker. It's a beautiful thing to have a dream. What shocks us is how few people ever follow through, and many of them are great speakers!
The people who DON'T make it in this business:
1 - Stop themselves. They never take their next step!
It's sad, but most people never do anything worthwhile. People have dreams and the real tragedy is they never take steps towards them. If you take steps towards a goal, and as you learn to discover it is just not for you, that is huge progress. Now, you're freed up to dream again! Investing in 2 1/2 days with these two pros is a GREAT next step.
2 - Save money, and lose value.
Because most people aren't rich, they look for ways to pursue their dreams and get free advice from anybody who's willing to give it. A friend of Darren’s showed him her “one-sheet" and he flipped out. She was so excited because she got help from someone. After a few questions, Darren found out that the person who helped her was a speaker who was barely getting booked herself. Augh! True value will yield dividends, not cost money. Going cheap will cost you!
If you were going to get major surgery, would you go to the cheapest doctor? (Just a bonus hint – graphic designers make things look pretty. “Copy” is what sells.)
3 - Have no plan.
Most people just getting started in the speaking business have no plan. Many speakers who have been around for years have no plan either. How can you truly get started without one? The worse tragedy, though, is working really hard in the wrong direction. Waste! Where do you get direction? Join the Champs!
What makes it even worse…
We are constantly being asked, “Which book should I get on professional speaking?” Which one? Are you serious? Obviously the person asking does not have the “mindset” of a true student. If you are serious about a dream or making something happen, then you buy every book on the shelf, take every seminar, and sponge off every successful speaker that will talk to you. We ALL still go to workshops!
“To start my Subway Franchise it cost me $60,000. The signs alone cost $5,000.
Speaking is a real business. My only regret in starting my speaking business is that
I didn't invest more in training from the pros. If I had invested just 10% of
the amount I did in Subway, my career would have taken off much quicker.”
~ Darren LaCroix (World Champion Speaker)
Have you ever seen a speaker who was horrible, and
you knew he (or she) was getting paid well?
Did you ever think, “I could have done a better job than THAT!”? Well, that speaker did something you didn't. He let the decision-maker know he speaks on the topic. When the meeting planner made the choice, that speaker was the best option for their budget… or so they thought.
We'll go beyond showing you your true "sell-able value." We'll also explain who is willing to pay for your presentation, how you can reach them, and, even better, how you can get them to reach you.
You can’t know what you don’t know!
No professional speaker has only one stream of income, because that's business suicide. There are ways to earn income you have not even thought of yet. The two of us teach people, who have been in the industry for years, new ways to generate revenue. Why not learn them now?
Don’t listen to us…
We could show you literally hundreds of unsolicited testimonials from people who were blown away with how much we’ve helped understand to profit from the love of speaking.
“You got me thinking about doing this in ways I never imagined.”
~ Oliver Cozby ~ Ft. Worth, TX
Earning money in speaking doesn't take
money, brains, talent, or connections
It simply takes following a system and learning from the best. A system and a plan are even more important for part-time and people launching their speaking business. Why? Because most have a job, family, friends, and hobbies. Therefore, with limited time to launch a speaking business, it is essential to be efficient with the limited time you do have. Yielding no track-able process with your efforts can not only be frustrating, but can literally cause people to give up on their dreams. Ouch.
I found the people at the top often gave me much better advice, and the exact opposite advice, than everyone else. Why? They think differently. They teach from years of wisdom, rather than out of textbooks or from something they just learned themselves. The two of us lived it. We have each surpassed some of our mentors, and we are still constantly learning.
The speaking business is ever-changing and we’ll let you in on the some of the newest systems to help you stand-out without breaking your back or the bank so you can deliver your value.
I will never forget what
World Champion Otis Williams, Jr. said to me…
Otis said, “Be so good, that the only question is who comes in second.” Does that resonate with you? It sure did for me. I decided I would become an even better student than ever before. It dawned on me (Darren) this year, even though he was talking about the art of public speaking; it applies even more to the business of speaking. When the meeting planner is making a decision, your marketing should be so good, the only question is who comes in second. Doesn’t that make sense?
I discovered something that shocked me…
People at the top truly want to help others succeed. There is no more satisfying feeling than seeing the growth of someone else. Just knowing we had a little part makes us feel great.
This is all a mentor wants; someone to actually use the advice given. We want to help people who are serious. It is easy to say you want to be a professional speaker, but are you serious? We will waste our valuable time and yours if you not serious and you are only browsing.
“Most people are looking for ‘validation,’ not education.”
~ Craig Valentine, MBA (World Champion Speaker)
We only want to work with those who are serious.
Are you serious?
It Gets Even Better…
You are not just going to have access to two World Champions, because we are ALSO bringing in experts to help us help you. We are dedicated to creating an event that literally transforms your business in 2 1/2 days.
Here is the value of just a few minutes talking to one of the Champs. This remarkable student and World Champions' EDGE Member, has spoken for a fee more than 100 times. Can you calculate the value of just one session Darren had with her?
“Thanks for the feedback on increasing our speaking rates. We did it as of the
first of the year and they didn’t hesitate. Amazing going from $200 to $500!
Using your modified agreement form is working great, too.”
~ Charlotte Endorf ~ Norfolk, NE
Do the math... if she speaks 20 times per year, what was that ONE session worth to her? That's $6,000 to her, annually. Do you think she'll be back for more? We are building our reputation as THE SOURCE for information in the professional speaking world!
If you are busy, you must leverage your time.
Technology can do that. Your own products can do that. They will show you exactly how product income is actually marketing that pays you! Darren and Ed will show you how simple it is and get their magic content-generating questions.
Publicity is another way to do that. To shorten your learning curve, we're bringing in a Public Relations Expert... someone to show you the do's and don'ts of publicity and social media: Russell Trahan, Owner/President of PR/PR. Patricia Fripp often refers to Russell as her "secret weapon." You'll tap into his marketing brain and walk away with his tips & tricks, as well.
Who, exactly, is Russell Trahan? He has more than 20 years in the public relations field. He began his career working with Chamber of Commerces and Downtown Business Associations, coordinating their marketing, public relations, and event management.
Gathering experience at a Top 10 market radio station, Russell then returned to the non-profit sector. After a tenure with the Walt Disney Company, he joined PR/PR.

Not willing to change
Seeking to save money by getting cheaper advice from people not earning a living speaking
Not willing to be a student
A whiner and a complainer
Afraid of doing something different and consider yourself un-coachable.
Looking for validation instead of education
“I have received my first speaking paycheck!
Your advice helped me realize what I was getting into and it sure helped me avoid
many of the pitfalls that others make routinely. Thanks for your help.”

OK Champs, you’ve got me interested. What’s it going to cost?
How much is a dream worth? Darren LaCroix, last year, spent $3000 to go to an Internet Marketing Seminar. It literally paid off ten-fold for him in just four months. While he was there, he invested another $3000 in an audio program.
Ed Tate spent thousands of dollars to learn how to sell more products when he speaks. The champs would have spent twice what they did for that same information again. As Tony Robbins says, "Success leaves clues." The Champs believe in investing in themselves, do you? You'll get the best of what they learned from years of educational workshops & experiences at the GET PAID to SPEAK by NEXT WEEK Champ Camp.
What if it was free... would you go?
What if we told you that attending this Champ Camp will literally pay for itself? Man, are we serious.

You can not only use your credibility to get people interested in buying it, but utilize the 3 Champs as well. You’ll be given an outline and record your part during the Champ Camp.
