We created this program to help entrepreneurs take advantage of a different way to generate income and add new revenue streams to their business. You have the knowledge, expertise, and skills corporations would pay generously for.
Get Booked (Home Study) will teach you how to get it.
In this home study online program, we will show you the exact steps weâ€™ve used to go from doing lower-paying speaking and consulting gigs to getting booked to speak and consult in 78 countries.
We will show you how we’ve helped 300 entrepreneurs, teachers, speakers, consultants, and online business owners sign $950,000 worth of paid speaking and corporate consulting contracts in 68 countries–and how they’ve built highly-profitable global businesses.
What This Program is Not
This program will not be what you typically see. We wonâ€™t be teaching you high-level strategies that sound good but arenâ€™t practical. We wonâ€™t be teaching you tactics that worked five years ago but wonâ€™t work now.
We wonâ€™t be teaching you how to book social media, podcast, or Internet marketing industry conferences that wonâ€™t pay you to train. We WONâ€™T be teaching you how to book consulting with individuals. We won’t leave you hanging after the live sessions.
What This Program Is
This program is step-by-step. You will learn how to create the right foundation, how to find and pitch PAID gigs, see real-life examples, and get access to documents that will help you build a thriving speaking and consulting business.
The sessions will teach you how to start from the very beginning, how to build, and how to get gigs as you build. If you have experience, this program will teach you how to use that experience to book five and six-figure gigs.
The focus of this program is booking gigs at midsize companies, Fortune 100-500 companies, and large multinational corporations all over the world.
