Recently, my daughter Mary mentioned that she would like to begin speaking professionally. As an accomplished businesswoman and popular blogger, she was routinely on stage, but she was ready to turn pro. She asked for my help.
As an amateur-turned-pro myself, I sat down and deconstructed how I got started. I emailed her a simple, step-by-step plan. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it really applies to anyone who wants to get started as a professional speaker.
