  1. I wrote an article for wannabe motivational speakers too – and I had about 438 steps on it. Thank YOU for doing it in FIVE and making it brilliant! Great stuff.

  2. Do you know what I just did??  I copied, pasted, increased font size, printed and taped it on my wall!!!!!  Seriously, even though I'm progressing nicely as a motivational speaker on health and wellness these clearly stated steps help clear my mind and give me specific tasks.  Thank you for always sharing your brilliance so generously!!

  3. This motivational speaker loves your great advice — especially #1 and #5.

  4. Thank you Kelly!  I LOVE the idea that it is not easy, but it is simple.  This is an absolutly brilliant guide for any speaker, new or experienced to read again and again!  

  5. You are such a great speaker coach Kelly!  I recently had lunch with a new speaker who wanted to talk about this great business we are in.  He told me he was frustrated with not getting to the next level.  I asked if he was ready – he said yes.  Then, I asked him "Okay, I'm a meeting planner with a conference here this week.  I have a last-minute cancellation on one of my keynote speakers – I need someone to fill in – what do you have? What's your speech? What could you do for my group?"  Crickets.  He couldn't answer these simple questions which told me he wasn't ready.  So – I would recomend he read your blog – especially #1!!!

  6. Yep, #1 and #5 eez de best!
