i've WORKED WITH

Like you, I launched my speaking business and didn’t know where to start but I desired to work from home and travel around the world speaking, impacting lives, on my own schedule


But you’ve been speaking for free and don’t know who to contact and how to contact them. Or maybe you got a lot to say but don’t know how to put your message together to take people on a path of transformation.

You eventually struggle to develop a brand that represents who you truly are and fail to get paid what you are truly worth. 

YO! I'M CHARLES

When I reached this point in my speaking business, I decided I no longer wanted to be a speaker by name and fail at it as a profession. 

And I thought I could find a way to beat the odds. 

I beat the odds with dyslexia yet I graduated college. I beat the odds becoming one of the fastest men in the world. Same stuff, different day, right? 

FALSE. I spent a year trying to get hired without working with an agent or bureau. But after many failed attempts, I discovered there is a formula to get booked consistently and it doesn’t require a large following on social media. 

I had to develop a business and master the system. It wasn’t until I created a speaker pipeline I now teach, that I started impacting tens of thousands each year. And I started with speaking for free to making six figures a year.

You know it’s your time to hit the stage and start getting paid to do what you love, and I want to show you how.

the stage is waiting for you...

⟶ If you have a story to tell and are trying to find ways make money sharing it. 

⟶ If you are a beginning speaker, it can be overwhelming to pinpoint your expertise so you know where to focus your attention. 

⟶ If you’ve been speaking for free and don’t know what to charge for your speaker fee, it can be frustrating to know you are offering so much value but people aren’t seeing your worth.

⟶ If you are an experienced speaker, not being up to code with the language that’s closing more deals and getting you paid at a premium price can limit your growth in the digital age.

⟶ You’ve dreamed of delivering your message to the masses, but you’re second guessing if you have the skills to be a full-time paid speaker. Should you give up on your dream? No way!

Have you ever watched someone on stage captivate an audience and felt, “That could be me, but how do I craft my message and get paid to speak?”

Your dream is possible

Can you imagine...

Waking up to emails from companies requesting you as a keynote speaker to speak in front of hundreds (even thousands) of attendees.​

Closing more than enough speaking deals that give you the financial freedom to focus on impacting the world with your message.

Receiving a standing ovation after the best speech of your life.

Hearing testimonials from attendees saying, “You changed my life.”

The Journey to Paid Speaking Gigs course allows you to create a thriving speaking business on your own terms.

Whether you want to speak on stages across the world, make money from your living room delivering virtual keynotes, create your own events or become the go-to speaker that people pay tens of thousands of dollars to see.

The Journey to Paid Speaking Gigs is a group coaching program filled with a tribe of self-motivated speakers who desire to create a thriving speaking business – with clarity.

If you’re like most speakers I chat with...

the stage is waiting for you...

You’ve been thinking about launching your speaking business for months, maybe even years, but you don’t know where to start.

You want to escape your 9-5 grind and finally be recognized as a top speaker with an array of services and products that provide passive income.


You’ve got a lot to say but don’t know how to put your message together so you take people on a path from motivation to transformation.

You may struggle to develop a brand that represents who you truly are so when people request your services or go to your website, you are completely out of alignment with your value, speaker fee, message, and impact. Because of this, you fail to get booked.

Maybe you close one or two speaking engagements a quarter, but you want a steady stream of booked events that allows you to build a six or seven-figure speaking business. You are craving a solid system that builds your net worth.

You don’t want fluff. You want something that is going to ignite your speaking business by giving you strategic solutions that you can put into action, right now!

⟶ What does it look like to own your story and voice as a speaker ?
⟶ How do I get paid for speaking?
⟶ How do I get out my own way and start speaking like I know I can?
⟶ How do you monetize your brand, develop content and social media strategies?

I’m sure these questions and many more like them can cause a lot of confusion when you are trying to build your speaking business. If you don’t have a plan, you are planning to fail. Not knowing what to say or how to say it can leave you in a pile of unqualified speakers that fail to get booked year round.

Without structure and proper training, it will take years to multiply your income and share your message with the masses (lucky for you, I’ve already made the mistakes and created a fast-track system to multiply your income again and again!)


You're ready to get on stage today and build a successful speaking business but you've got questions - I've got answers!

The Answers to Your Journey

how I’ll help you + what to expect of you

how long does it take to build a successful speaking career?

It depends on what stage you are at in your speaking career. This isn’t an overnight success program. Long term success takes long term commitment. The goal of this program is to accelerate your journey of getting to the place of becoming a full time speaker. What I have done is to collapse the time it would normally take for you to do it yourself and empowered you with the tools needed to succeed within 3-8 months. This time frame is dependent on your level of commitment and effort.

BACK TO QUESTIONS

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DEVELOP MY GO-TO SPEECH?

With the coaches in the program, we will help you develop, hone, and practice strategies to craft your go-to speech throughout the entirety of the program. Each week, we encourage all members to send videos of their speech to receive a video critique and feedback form from the coaches. The feedback will identify blind spots in your presentation, which will help you build your confidence, trust and authority on stage.

BACK TO QUESTIONS

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ME TO GET A PAID SPEAKING GIG?

This is dependent upon your niche, brand, and overall message. But, everything that you need to close paid speaking gigs will be covered within this course. You will no longer have to question why you aren’t booking engagements. This only leaves you with the task of implementing the strategies we teach within the 6 cores of the Journey to Paid Speaking Gigs.

BACK TO QUESTIONS

I JUST STARTED SPEAKING, IS THIS FOR ME?

YES! We have worked with a number of clients who have never been on stage and don’t have a website but know they have a voice and a message to share that will impact the world. 

If you are on the starting blocks, we won’t leave you in the dust. Each course is dedicated to covering the foundations involved in building a successful speaking business. You might focus on more of the beginning modules to build more confidence and create solid strategies to develop your message and brand. 

These modules will also help you overcome the fears that come with beginning your public speaking experience. Why suffer when you can thrive with a step by step process that moves you from the starting line to the finish line in your speaking career.

BACK TO QUESTIONS

I'VE BEEN SPEAKING FOR A WHILE AS A PART TIME SPEAKER, IS THIS FOR ME?

YES! Maybe you have traveled around the world speaking, but you’ve reached a glass ceiling – with your brand, your revenue stream, your booked engagements. I’ve been there too, and I know the pivots required to break through inconsistency so you can outperform your previous years.  It’s time to catch your second wind so you can get consistent growth in your speaking career and make the level of impact you desire. The program will take you through techniques and strategies that will not only have people coming to you, but will show you how to present yourself to businesses for sustainable partnership opportunities. You might have landed a few big name clients but you are working from one opportunity to the next, struggling to find consistent engagements, profitability, and proper pricing for your speaker fees. We cover how to SCALE your business in this digital age and make strategic moves that will build a successful speaking business.
