How to Earn







A plan to make money speaking that works like magic

In 2018, the stage comes to you my friends – whether it’s Facebook Live, on replay or in an online archive to be found by a future web search. If you have a message that matters, you have to get it onto the right stages, whether those stages are face-to-face conferences and seminars, or online webinars, podcasts, or video interviews. With speaking, you can make a bigger impact on the world with your message. Plus, you can make a living speaking, have fun doing it, and be able to hire people to run the parts of your business that you are less excited about.

Do you want to make money speaking? Here’s the secret to making six figures speaking: • Give a speech to get clients • Tell your story • Tell your process • Give some tips • Get hired!

FindingtheStage for Your One Great Talk What you actually need to get booked by event planners

When you stand at the front of a room with a microphone – the “Like, Know, Trust” factor is powerful. All you need is one great talk. Your expert position instantly garners the attention and admiration of your target audience. You need a speech that sells and a marketing plan that wins stages. If you find a paid stage, that’s great. When you land a speaking gig, you get paid to speak. You can also offer a free speech, if the audience is full of your ideal clients. Where do you want to speak? What audiences do you want to speak for? At The Expert Speaker Institute – we help our clients find the right venues and opportunities. We also help event planners find the best speakers. Visit to book a speaker or join the institute.

A little tip on that strategy of yours… If you are just starting out, “Be Awesomer” is not the strategy to get you booked. You don’t need more certifications or awards. And, it’s not better branding, websites, logos, messaging or new business cards that you need either. Not having all the “right” equipment–lights, microphone, cameras, and flip charts is also a poor excuse for what’s holding your back. You need a Signature Talk and a Stage-Getting Campaign that gets you booked on the right stages. Want some help? Go to to learn how to build your Signature Talk and your Stage-Getting Campaign. 4

Speaker Spotlight

MarcCordon I realized that if I wanted to get to the next stage of my business, I needed to literally get on stage!

They call me the Professor of Happiness because of my background teaching happiness in higher education. Oddly enough, it was then, that I was my most unfulfilled until I discovered life coaching. I trained to become a life coach and instantly loved the merger of happiness studies and coaching. I finally saw concepts that I had studied, being applied and impacting people’s lives. In the beginning, I gave away my coaching, charging as little as $75 for nine sessions. Eventually, I got to the point where I made enough money to hire a coach. I learned quickly that everything speeds up when you hire a coach. When other coaches ask me how to make money coaching, I tell them, ‘You have to hire a coach’. You can’t coach other people without having a coach, yourself. We are trained to talk people through their challenges, but usually, it’s our own blind spots that prevent us from growing. When I wanted to write a book, I hired a coach who helped me to not only write a book, but to own what it means to be a best-selling author. When wanted to get to the next stage of my business, I needed to literally get on stage! I joined Majeed’s Make Money Speaking program.

When I Stopped Settling, I Started Flourishing Marc Cardon The Professor of Happiness - How new coaches with full hearts and empty calendars can fulfill their true purpose and fill their businesses with happiness

Majeed give me carte blanche to talk about things differently than I had when I was presenting to college students. I learned that bringing my personality and experiences to the stage helped my presentation come alive. We even made an unexpected connection between happiness, coaching and my time in the roller derby. I learned I could be playful and unapologetic and still deliver a powerful and serious message. As a direct result of the program, we scored 15 paid stages around the country in just two months; one of those was a keynote to over 200 people. On top of that, I was hired by a top international coaching program to train coaches across the country, I’ve been invited to co-teach at the Happiness Studies Academy, and I have increased my coaching rates by 400%. Within 3 months, I had a book, paid stages and opportunities that I never before dreamed about! This is a zero to infinity story, all because I invested in myself and chose not to settle.
