Motivational Speaker and becoming a professional motivational speaker takes a lot of training but can earn a big income.  Just ask my friend Johnny Campbell, Professional Speaker and an excellent motivational speaker.  I have watched Johnny get an audience sitting at the edge of their seat, waiting for his next nugget of wisdom.

I have been through Johnny’s motivational public speaking training and his public speaking courses help people get over the number one fear, fear of public speaking.

As Johnny points out in his website http://www.21stcenturyspeaker.com/ anyone can enjoy a lifestyle filled with travel and adventure.  But you need to have the proper public speaking training or you will be frustrated and aggravated by not knowing how to motivate an audience with the right gestures and content.

Fear of public speaking can be overcome and the enjoyment of being a well paid Motivational Speaker is achievable if you have a good solid foundation by following some basic principles:

* View yourself as business owners who sell speaking services

* Understand you market, industry or niche.

* Know the needs, wants and desires of their customers.

* Take the time to create products. (Books, CD’s, Reports)

* Stay in contact with previous clients and attendees.

* Promote you service and product online and offline.

* Constantly try to improve everything you do in your business.

* Test, track and survey all of your actions all the time.

* Follow-up clients in a timely manner.

* Ask for the business from potential clients.

Getting over the fear of public speaking and becoming a professional motivational speaker you must work everyday at marketing your business and commit to becoming a good communicator. The real secret to a good living (no great living) as a professional Motivational Speaker is great marketing and doing as many speaking events as possible.  If you follow these rules and advice along with getting public speaking training from my friend Johnny Campbell then you are well on your way to being a great Motivational Speaker.
