Grant Baldwin – The Successful Speaker: Five Steps for Booking Gigs, Getting Paid, and Building Your Platform (FS365)

“Grant Baldwin reveals many invisible but real struggles that are in the background of the public speaker on the stage: the travel, the preparation, the nerves, the hope that we will connect with people, and how to make all this effort pay the bills. For many, this will be a game-changer.” -Michael Hyatt

Out guest today is one of my favorite speakers, Grant Baldwin. Grant is one of my go-to resources anytime I need to give a talk or learn to be a better speaker or onstage personality. Grant just published his new book with help from Jeff Goins The Successful Speaker: Five Steps for Booking Gigs, Getting Paid, and Building Your Platform.

In today’s episode, Grant shares:

  • some of the biggest mistakes that new speakers make when getting started
  • how can speakers know if they have a topic that organizations actually hire for
  • tips and tactics that people can use that will make them a better speaker
  • and, how much should someone charge to speak
