We write books, consult, coach and a whole host of other things that help drive revenue. Since the economy keeps shifting, the days of the $15,000 speaker doing 50-70 gigs a year might be behind us.
We must distribute our knowledge in other ways.
For instance, the first time the economy dipped a few years back, it hit my coaching business pretty hard. That was when I developed the “club” idea. I thought “okay, if people can’t afford private coaching any more, then we’ll do it in groups”.
It was a big hit.
And for 2012, I’ve expanded on the idea even further with The Wealthy Speaker University.
I tell you this for two reasons.
1) Of course, I want you to take a look at the University as a possible method for driving your business forward next year. Self serving, sure.
But 2. I wonder what your own version of The University might be? Think about what your clients want from you and work backwards from there. Do they want more time with you? Do they want training that you could provide in video?
There are many outlets for us to use to expand our empire.
See you soon Wealthy Speakers!
ps: The Wealthy Speaker University has programs for 3 different levels. Please give it a look as we’ve added a bunch of cool new features. The big benefit? Every month, for 12 months next year, you’ll be moving your business strategy forward! What’s that worth? http://wealthyspeakeru.com/
