The Six Figure Speaker, Formula for a Six-Figure Income as a Professional Speaker was written by Cathleen Fillmore. It is a series of short, easy to digest chapters discussing different aspects of being a professional speaker, with real world examples from other successful speakers and writers.
What’s great about this book:
Very concise. Lots of great, specific advice. Many of the chapters include relvent stories and good reflective questions about topics such as time management, why you need bureaus, your referral strategy, and even writing your own book.
Some of the material is similar to other works on the subject, but this is a well-written perspective. If speaking for a living is your goal, then you should read this book.
