I'm lucky enough to have a large circle of speaking partners who have allowed me to interview them for both television and radio. Some of these professionals I can actually call them a friend, to provide them with help if they need it, or to call on them when I'm the one in need.
So in this episode, my friend Dan Blanchard stopped by and we pulled out the microphones to record a casual conversation about how we each began our journey to help others through professional speaking, and getting paid to do it in the process.
Dan is a best selling author, speaker and educator. He's written numerous books, including his latest one, The Storm: How Young Men Become Good Men. He has also just released his first memoire titled, A Fighting Chance. And he's inspired me to write my own by the end of next year. Here's my conversation with Dan Blanchard.
I can tell you that Dan has no fear of speaking and I got over mine a long time ago. But the fear of speaking definitely keeps some adults from considering adding speaking to their marketing plan. Yes, unfortunate situations do happen, and to even the most seasoned of speakers.
In addition to my book, FROM THE SOAPBOX TO THE STAGE, I've written other publications to help speakers grow their business. Want to hear about some of the worst things that have happened to speakers? Check out my book on Amazon, SPEAKERS' WORST NIGHTMARES.
