For 10 years now, I’ve been able to provide for my family as a full-time speaker. Sometimes I have to pinch myself because I feel as if I’m living a dream, that dates back almost 2 decades.
People often ask me, “What’s your favorite part of being a speaker?” That answer is easy, is the feedback you get from those who were somehow moved by the message.
It’s always invigorating to receive messages from someone that was in my audience who are expressing some version of, “Your story will change mine”.
It’s awesome that I get to travel and see the world as part of the gig.
It’s awesome that I talk about Front Row Foundation and bring attention to the charity, which keeps helping more people.
It’s awesome that in my first two years I almost went bankrupt trying to be a speaker without any help, and today someone will pay me thousands of dollars to come speak for an hour.
It’s awesome that I’ve been privileged enough to make more than 1,000,000 as a speaker, and I need to mention after saying that — I don’t love talking about how much money I’ve made, but I think this is important, since many of you are trying to support yourself, your family and contribute to the world. Money isn’t my main motivator, but it is a tool that can help create freedom in ways I deeply appreciate.
Outside of the simple fact that it began with a decision to make it happen, I chose to invest in my first speaking Bootcamp (about $7,000 back in 2009 with Hal Elrod).
Since then, I’ve hired personal coaches to give me 1-1 time, and two years ago, even after I had won “Speaker of the Year” twice, I took another step to hire the best speaking coach in the world (my opinion), for more than $20,000.
I’m so grateful for the tips, encouragement, and roadmap that has been shared by mentors, teachers, and guides. I may have gotten to where I am solo, but it’s been way more fun, and I’d guess I got here quicker because of their wisdom.
Some of you have asked me for support in helping you build your keynote/brand and figuring out how to get paid to do it all.
I get excited thinking about how I could help.
I’m committed to taking 8 people into a year-long mastermind group starting in 2018.
I’m going to provide group and private coaching and share everything I’ve learned. There will be no advanced level after this — I’m giving everything away in 2018. I also don’t know if I’ll ever do this again. There’s a good chance this is one shot deal.

“This event changed my life. Not only did I learn some incredible techniques that I have applied with my personal public speaking adventures, but the most impactful aspect was meeting people who are changing the world and having the honor to call them friends.” ~ Ashley Fussell
“In just one day, I have the framework for a keynote!” ~ Lance Salazar
If so, complete the brief 5-min survey below and register to reserve your spot. I’ll be filling this both on a “first come first serve basis” along with choosing which 8 people would make the most dynamic team.
