I can’t wait to unleash today’s episode. This is an interview that I learned a ton from. We’re going to learn how to build a speaking career and get paid to talk.
Today’s guest is the creator of the The Speaker Lab training program so if you’re looking to make a living out of speaking engagements today’s episode is for you. He’s also a nationally known keynote speaker and author. Grant Baldwin is joining us today. Grant is a fellow podcaster, hosting the show “How Did You Get Into That?” which has over 30,000 listeners every month and has been the #1 ranked Careers show on iTunes. As a speaker, Grant has given hundreds of presentations and has spoken to over 400,000 people in 45 different states through leadership conferences, conventions and other events. He also has a book and curriculum entitled “Reality Check” which is taught in over 400 schools around the country.
So, with Grant we talk about getting started and the three questions he thinks everybody should ask themselves before diving into a speaking career. We also talk about the marketing tools that could really benefit you in order to present yourself well and to get those great speaking opportunities. And why opening up a credit card is like getting married. We talk a little about money as well with Grant.

One of my favorite quotes from the interview: “The way that you get better as a speaker is you speak. The way that you get better as a writer is you write.” – Click To Tweet
