Motivational Speaker LOVES Randy Gage

Yes, this motivational speaker loves Randy Gage. No, not that way. But in the way that you love people who motivate you to change your life. And if your life needs changing, I would recommend that you find a way to get in Randy’s path. My way was to join the National Speakers Association – a decision I have never once regretted – because without NSA I would be lost. So for all you aspiring¬†motivational speakers out there –¬† I recommend that you get involved with NSA. No other resource will come close to this one if you want to turn this into a successful business and not lose yourself in the process.

So I just returned from the NSA Winter Conference where my mind was blown – over and over. To those of you who know me – you know that’s not hard. I’m a harsh critic of people on the platform – and Randy blew over any test I put him to. I attended his session on Social Media – and was super pumped to learn that we are doing everything right, and that the things my husband has been saying for YEARS were all true. He’s not happy that I needed someone else to tell me before I believed him. But oh well.

Randy also did a session on reinventing the keynote – not reinventing my keynote – but reinventing the keynote. It was incredible. And he has opened the door to all of these things I was afraid to do because I was afraid they were too different – and he affirmed everything I have been telling you for years about connecting with people on and off the platform. Isn’t it cool when we see that we have something in common with the rock stars of our business?

So I just wanted to start this day off with a shout out to one of my new heroes. Who inspired me – taught me – encouraged me – and gave me permission to be prosperous. So please – if you’re looking for a rock star speaker – looking to become a rock star speaker – or just looking for courage – go to I think that just looking at his website will be inspiring alone.

Thank you Randy for what you gave to me, and what you give to NSA. You ROCK!!!
