WHY DOES SPEAKING 10X YOUR INCOME?
#1 - It's very slow trying to build your business 1-to-1. Whereas it's very fast growing it 1-to-many. You instantly draw ideal people to you, instead of having to chase them.
#2 - You build much more credibility in your chosen niche, and are seen as an expert in your field, and a leader for people to follow
#3 - It's a way to share your ideas and solutions in a creative way, thereby proving your value in the marketplace.
#4 - It instantly builds the "Like, Know and Trust" factor that is hugely important to stand out in the marketplace
MYTHS THAT STOP PEOPLE...
I'M NOT THE SPEAKER TYPE - I can show you how to make it work beautifully with your personality, style and background
NO ONE BOOKS MY TYPE OF TOPIC - There are 1000's of events (live and online) happening every single day that need even unusual topics
I DON'T WANT TO TRAVEL - There are 100's of events (locally and online) that you can speak at
I CAN'T MONETIZE MY TYPE OF TOPIC - Even if you just have a book, or a non business topic, there are hundreds of ways to monetize speaking
I HAVE TRIED LOTS OF MARKETING METHODS THAT DON'T WORK - Many don't work because they miss the all important building of the "like, know and trust" factor. Speaking does that exponentially. Many top business owners use speaking as their main marketing method because it's so effective, they don't need to do anything else.

Yes, I take you through the whole process of ensuring you have the right “entry topic” to get people interested in you as an expert in your area. Many people make the mistake of trying to cram all their expertise into one speech. It's better to go deep in one specific way.
This will ensure you can help people, prove your credibility, and help build the “like know and trust” factor vital to building your business. Then your presentation efforts are more likely to turn into long-term income and opportunities.
We choose that entry topic by researching the marketing to see what audiences and online listeners are hungry for, and where to find them. Together we create a strategy for making those bookings and turning that into income.
Of course, in fact it’s even more potent these days with streaming video, webinars, podcasting and more. You can reach people all over the world from the comfort of your own home. There are 2 ways to do it.
a) You can produce your own event
b) Be a guest on someone else's online event (like a podcast, youtube live stream, webinar or telesummit).
Again, I help you create an entry topic, and how to find listeners who are hungry for that topic. Then I help you create and implement a strategy for drawing in your listeners for these online events.
Yes, that’s a big part of what we do. I help you analyze the speaking opportunity to find out:
1) If it a good use of your time
2) If so, what's the best thing to promote, and
3) How to promote it.
Together we create a non-salesy presentation that makes people want to work with you. It’s designed to make ideal clients come up to you after the presentation and want to work with you or buy from you. It also allows you to get many people on your email list, if they aren't ready in the moment to buy, but may become clients down the line.
I make recommendations on the best marketing strategy based on the goals you say you want to reach, and given your best learning style, your best marketing style, and what you think you'll be able to keep up with on a regular basis.
It's important to create a system to get continuous clients and income, so keeping it simple, something you love to do, and something that you can become very good at over the years is very important. Most people try to do too many different types of marketing, and at a basic level of proficiency, and then wonder why they don't enjoy it and don’t get good results.
Once we find what most works for you, we reverse engineer the process. Then, in some cases I can recommend good people to do the work for you, who are reasonably priced and yet do good quality work.
What I offer is a "done-with-you" service in the sense that I work with you to come up with a plan, keep you accountable to doing the necessary steps, troubleshoot with you if you get stuck, and help you course correct as we go, and find you excellent helpers where needed. In other words it's not a "done-for-you" service.
Yes, if your topic fits in with what people tend to pay for. If I hear of events that would be a good fit for you and your topic, I pass along the information about how to propose to speak. Together we might design and rehearse your pitch to event planners.
I also show you how to find those ideal kinds of speaking engagements yourself. You also get access to an online training for you [or for your assistant] on how to find, approach and negotiate with meeting planners. All that said, I'm not a speaker agency, so I don’t broker speaking opportunities on your behalf.
If your topic isn’t likely to generate a paid speaking opportunity, I help you go after platform speaking opportunities. Of the 1000’s of speaking opportunities around the world each day only 10% paid, whereas 90% are platform.
That means they don’t pay, but you are usually allowed to make an offer to the audience, unlike when you’re paid. Many people who do platform speaking make far more money than paid speakers, depending on the type of offer they are making.
Because many of our clients are from all over the world, we don’t have a team that goes out to film a live speaking event. Also, because many people prefer to do their own video editing these days, we don’t do the editing for them.
That said, I do recommend a template for what kind of footage to get, what to say first in the video, what to include next, how to end it, who you can hire to help, if needed. I help you plan out the process and break it down easy steps keeping you accountable to getting it done.
That said, we do a video interview with you where I pull out all the most important information that I know meeting planners and ideal clients would want to know. That footage can be added to your About page, and to your speaker video reel.
Yes, that's a big part of the series. After four years of helping people with just the strategy part of building their business as an expert, I noticed people were not implementing enough. They didn't know how to get over procrastination, self-doubt, imposter syndrome, asking for money, getting past fears of failure and success, and all those "inner game" issues.
Yes, with many clients we work on a speech, book and online content at the same time – multi-purposing it. That’s the quickest, easiest way to go about it. Together we find or hone a model that is unique to you. Then, I help you figure out how present it in various formats. That way you differentiate yourself from your competitors. This highlights your greatest “super power” as a an expert in your field.
The program can be expanded or contracted depending on your schedule and how much time you can devote to this. Some of my clients with full time jobs want to meet once a month, that way between sessions they have enough time to complete the little tasks we come up with.
In that case, the program extends for longer than 8 months. Most of my clients meet with me every two weeks which ends up being about 8 months. Some have a huge event or deadline coming up and want to meet once a week to make sure everything gets done, so maybe it’s only 3-4 months. In between times, we are both working on things as well.
For individual coaching you have up to 2 hours after the first session to cancel. Then, you’ll receive a full refund less a processing fee of 3.7%. After that there are no refunds.
No, I cannot guarantee any particular results. Because people come from many different backgrounds and offer diverse products and services, I cannot guarantee you will be able to find a match for your products or services.
Like any business, success depends on a number of factors beyond my control such as your focus and effort, the quality of your product or service, and demands for your particular product or service, etc.
To be successful you must actively participate in our offerings, be willing to apply feedback for improvement, and be able to evolve personally and professionally through the process.
That said, I seek to create the best possible incubator designed just for you, your learning style, and your life circumstances, so that you can launch to the next level as quickly and easily as possible.
If you haven't already done so, fill out this APPLICATION FORM. Then, if I think we have a good fit, we get on the phone, Zoom, or Skype to chat where you can ask questions.
Then if we both feel like it’s the right next step, then I send you an Agreement Letter, Link to Register, and a Needs Assessment. Then we set up our first time to meet.
I didn't realize how spiritual and moving a process it would be to launch myself as a speaker. It really was significant for me. I will be eternally grateful to Carla for this journey.
I came to Carla because although I'd been a popular speaker for over 20 years, I'd never gotten a standing ovation. I knew with help from a pro I could jump up to the next level. Carla went through all the different presentations I did. Then we worked together to revise my material, my story and my delivery. I did my talk and I got that standing ovation!! Since then my calendar has filled up. I saw how much expertise went into a really powerful talk. It was definitely worth it.
Carla spent a lot of time truly understanding my content and my goals. We went through my presentation piece by piece so that I would get the kind of results and business growth I was really looking for. I would highly recommend Carla. She's warm and friendly and really REALLY good as a coach for speakers. It totally paid off.
I'd been on the speaking circuit for over 30 years, but was ready for a change. Carla, with her vast experience, was invaluable to me in upgrading my presentation to the next level! This increased my self confidence and therefore my speaking fees.
I was just learning but not actually taking any action to get out as a speaker. When I saw Carla up on stage I thought, that's what I want to do! I was so impressed by the way she spoke. The Platinum program got me into action, and helped me break free of my confusion so that I could have a clear path forward and get launched.
Carla provided magnificent guidance for me to journey within myself so that my authentic voice could express. There was a magic in her coaching, because I could feel she was really invested in me succeeding. Through her connections I got the chance to do a TEDx talk, and through the work we did together I was ready to go with my 18 minute talk.
This is one of the best processes I ever done on how to construct a speech so that you win people over to your message.
This process helped me get over the fear of public speaking and ensure that my presentation matched my values, goals and direction in my life.
Carla has been ‘there’. She generously shared her experience and connected me to important people in her network. She helped me maintain my focus and move through challenges. It moved my business forward in powerful ways such as finishing my book.
I've been a speaker for over 20 years. I found this program a HUGE help to getting paid what I REALLY want and getting the engagements I LOVE to speak at.
I got a chance to speak at a TEDx event and other great opportunities because of this program. I'm so grateful to Carla, because otherwise none of this would have happened.
I’ve gotten way more out of this program than others I've done. I love the combo of Carla’s clarity AND her broad range of knowledge regarding the speaking biz.
I was going to close down my business until I started learning how to speak at networking events. This program totally pays for itself.
Carla's coaching helped my business grow exponentially! I got on bigger stages, sold more products and turned my keynote into a book.
This has been life changing for me because it has propelled me much further along in my career than I could have done on my own.
