A question I get asked a lot is: How can I get paid to speak?

One of the best ways is to speak and present for free.

(This goes for both in-person and online presentations and trainings.)

Why speak for free?

  • You build relationships with event organizers who can then recommend you or pay you to speak at future events.
  • You get to know other speakers who recommend you for paid events.
  • You can get video clips of you speaking to showcase your ability to deliver.
  • You become more comfortable and confident with your material and delivery which results in you feeling more confident asking to be paid.

My guest today is Angela Hosking, who is a dynamic speaker and founder of Her One Tribe.

Angela was in our Monetize Your Speaking program last year and is currently in our mastermind.

In this episode, Angela and I talk about:

  • Strategies she used to get her first free speaking engagements (that you can use too)
  • The mindset shift Angela made
  • How she used online summits and webinars to build her email list
  • The opportunities that have come from the speaking she’s done, including ones she hadn’t anticipated
  • What you can negotiate for when speaking
  • Angela’s philosophy of taking small brave steps every day
