The travel. The best part is being on stage; making folks laugh; and occasionally changing their day. Or even their week. Or their….?

Good news… the best part (stage time) FAR outweighs the difficulty of travel. But sometimes you gotta wonder.

A good friend who is also a magician speaker told me that, “I’d do the stage time for free. What the really pay for is my time in the airport, my time in the hotel, my time in a cab.”

We laughed. Of course I truly believe that what are clients are really buying when they pay our speakers’ fees is our lifetimes of practice and experience that leads to those relatively few minutes on stage.

But still…. If it was easier, I might pay to do it too. :)

    Hello, I’m interested in becoming a motivational speaker for my upcoming organization. Since i am the Founder and C.E.O, i wil need to learn how to really speak to a hungry for support audience. I’m great with people and have a great personality.

    I know how to be professional and have a great sense of humor, soooooo, i was thinking, these make up great qualities for doing what i want to do.

    I also know that it’s a whole other thing when you have a business and wantto motivate people. can you help me, I want some CD’s i can lesson to for mentoring purposes.. Do you have anything like that??
