Do you feel called to speak--but you have no idea how to get started?

In this jam-packed practical course you will learn how to:

  • Discover your message
  • Craft a PERFECT talk that will change lives
  • Glean those first precious bookings
  • Speak with professionalism and polish
  • Generate word of mouth
  • Decide how much to charge
  • Grow your ministry

I started speaking in 2002, and for the first several years I didn't put in place the key things I needed to generate word of mouth. It took much longer for my ministry to grow than it would have if I had done the things I want to teach you right from the beginning.

The course is for writers:

If you already have a blog or you've written a book, you may be asked to speak. But what do you speak about? And how do you branch out beyond the written word? I'll walk you step-by-step through a process to discover what your key message is, and to incorporate that message into a talk filled with humor, your story, and inspirational anecdotes that point people to God.

And the course is for speakers:

Or perhaps God has done some great things in your life, and you're often told, "You really need to be telling other people about this!" But you don't know how to start getting those bookings. I'll walk you step-by-step through uncovering your niche, identifying key decision makers, and getting their attention!

This course provides specific, practical instructions on how to speak well, and provides you with detailed worksheets to:

  • Brainstorm speaking leads
  • Uncover your theme
  • Figure out anecdotes to use
  • Figure out a fee schedule
  • Create contracts and letters of understanding that you can use right out the gate

And, most helpful of all, you'll get a detailed talk skeleton that you will come back to, over and over!

You've got everything here that can help you start speaking, right away.

"I was hitting such a pit of discouragement in regards to my ministry and was really wondering if I should just throw in the towel, settle for a 'normal' life and forget it altogether. Then I found your materials. You confirmed some things that I had been considering doing but not sure if they were the right step. Obviously, local community colleges don't have a 'how to become a for real speaker' program. I ace public speaking (I'm a school teacher) but giving a speech is much different from ministering to people. This was just what I needed! Thank you so much!"

- Jessica H.

I'll teach you how to go from free engagements to getting your schedule filled up with groups that can actually pay. And the difference is professionalism. It doesn't have to cost very much money, either. I'll show you the biggest things new speakers waste money on--and where you should put your time (not even your money!) instead.

Your dream can become a reality, and you can start impacting people with the message God gave you-- right now.
