Honestly, if you are in the education or information business and you're not conducting your own seminar and workshops yet, you are leaving a lot of money on the table.
LOTS OF IT.
Maybe you've heard that before and you decide that running a seminar is too much work.
Maybe you don't see yourself as someone who can move crowds because you're not an 'extrovert'.
I used to hold onto those limiting beliefs myself, and later a few revelations dawned on me as I saw more and more 'unusual' speakers coming out in different fields.
MYTH BUSTED #1: You DON'T have to be an extrovert.
The stage is not a club exclusive to people who 'hang out' and 'get along with other people'. And you don't have to be a 'people person' to be successful in business. It may be an advantage but it is definitely no prerequisite!
MYTH BUSTED #2: Being in the seminar business is NOT entirely risky.
Especially if you know what you're doing. Unfortunately, most people are intimidated by the struggles that new speakers go through and falsely believe so. And the thing about being in the seminar business is that, it's not all about just delivering content.
Right off the bat I can think of many generous speakers who are not paid much (if any at all) to speak at events. While these guys are making a couple hundreds of dollars to speak - or a consolation gift at the end of their presentation - there are speaking powerhouses out there pounding in hundreds of thousands of dollars from every event they go to.
Which One Do You Want To Be?
If you want to go BIG in the seminar business and take your info business enterprise to the next level, there's no better time than now.
