How I Went From Standup Comedy to Motivational Speaking
Changing my standup act into a corporate speech was accomplished by adding a life-balance message in-between my jokes. This small tweak, combined with sharpening my marketing skills, lead to me making in one night what it would have taken one month to make in comedy clubs.
In addition to increasing my income by 600%, I started flying first class and staying in first class hotels. But even more than that, I am making a difference in people's lives by giving them some "ah-ha" moments along with "ha-ha's."
I get so many people asking me the particulars about how to get into this untapped market that I've spent the past year putting everything I know about writing a speech and marketing it into a DVD series called "Speaking Career in a Box."
Please take a moment to look at it as I'm offering $75 off to people on my mailing list before it is marketed to the general public. This discount ends midnight, September 27, 2010.
