Did you know that when Oprah first started her show, A.M. Chicago, it tanked?
Long before she became a personal development icon, Oprah had been brought to Chicago start a brand new local morning show.
The problem was, no one was watching.
In a desperate attempt to do anything to improve ratings, her staff went down to the street and asked strangers if they would want to sit in a studio audience for a TV show. They filled up the studio with an audience, and the rest is history.
What Oprah discovered that day was that a live audience = energy. It allowed her essence to come through unlike anything else.
I know how she feels. While people love listening to my voice online and reading my writing, I find that my comedic nature doesn’t come out until I have a live audience. Then, watch out! You’ll be laughing, and you’ll be crying. Being an introverted and socially awkward person, this really shocked me!
Live speaking moves people.
And if you have original content, it’s one of the best ways for you to change lives.
It’s also one of the easiest ways for you to create more income. It’s impactful, instantaneous, and the impression you make on people with your work will last a lifetime.
Even in my very first talk, before I knew what the heck I was doing and stood like a statue reading a script, I walked away with over $1000. After I learned how to actually give a talk and market myself, I was shocked at how easy it was to create an extra $10,000+ in my business in just an hour.
If you have original content, you are sitting on a pile of money, pure and simple.
