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.
My friend Daniel Harkavy and I are pumped about our new book, Living Forward! It hits shelves in March, but we couldn’t wait to tell you all about it. To get a taste of what’s in store before it hits the stores, check out this video.

Do you ever find yourself in a funk? I sure do. Once I was on the road, preparing to deliver a speech. I love speaking, but I was experiencing an unusual amount of distraction and self-doubt.

I had about four hours before I went on stage. So, I decided to call my wife, Gail.
If there’s one thing most entrepreneurs don’t lack, it’s ideas. I dream up new products and businesses every week. You’re probably the same way. The problem is lots of ideas aren’t worth pursuing, are they?

One major facepalm for me was when we launched the Best Year Ever Leaders Edition last year. Best Year Ever is hugely successful, and I thought a version for leaders was a no-brainer. Not so much. After heavy development costs and rushing to market, we sold exactly one unit.
I wish I had Pat Flynn’s new book Will It Fly? then. It would have saved me thousands of dollars, a couple week’s worth of wasted time, and tons of grief.
I could barely contain myself when the truck arrived. It’s finally here!” I said. The second the boxes were unloaded I opened one up. I couldn’t believe it. I was holding a copy of my new book, Living Forward!
Like any author, I was excited because holding that book represents years of work for me and my coauthor, Daniel Harkavy. But there’s another reason for my excitement. I know this book is going to change lives.
