Why did I become a speaker/author entrepreneur?
Part of the word Authority comes the word Author.
If you want people to follow you or influence the world rather than being influenced, becoming and author speaker could be for you!
A lot of people think that they must have certain degrees, or qualifications to be an expert, but that not true.
You simply need to know more than the people listening to you.
Have you ever been to a seminar where the speaker is reminding you of things you already know?
You probably found it valuable anyway right?
If you want more traction in your industry then being a speaker/author is a great way to grow your business.
For instance I was recently interviewed on a podcast that reaches thousands of people. People listen for free and I educate them about our services at Mr.Outsource.com. FREE marketing to an audience that is perfect for my business! The deep dive into my book was on The Entrepreneurs Library with Wade Danielson. Click here to listen.
Why did I get interviewed? My team contacted them and asked them if they needed an expert on outsourcing on the show. They then set it up and put it in my calendar. You can do this also!
