Welcome to the blog and what I’m sure is going to become one of the liveliest online spots for speakers to come and share news on what they’re learning and what their using to build their speaking business.

I’m going to get the ball rolling today by sharing with you some vital concepts when it comes to building your business through speaking.  It doesn’t matter if you’re already a public speaker, or whether you’re terrified of speaking in public- today’s video is a great overview of how you can experience accelerated business growth through effective presentations.

In this video I cover:

* The 5 Advantages Speaking has over any type of marketing and how to apply them

* The 3 big mistakes people make when speaking

* The 3 phases of growth of a speaking, coaching or consulting business and why you MUST go through them in the RIGHT order or risk being broke and unhappy; or even embarrassed.

This is the first in a LOAD of training that I have never before released to the general public for free. Until now a lot of this information has been only available to my clients who are paying me up to $100,000 per year!  So, trust me when I say- if there is even one drop of desire in your heart to make big money from your passion through speaking- Sit down, grab a notebook and take the time to go through this training right now.

Let me know exactly what you think in the comments section below too.  Tell me what you like, what you don’t.  What do you want more of? If you let me know, I promise you I’ll make it happen.  That’s what it is all about!

Enjoy the video

    Hi Joanna

    Great video to kick off your new blog! Precise, informative and helpful…I also liked the stories you shared from the early days in your business..gave me encouragement to hear about growing your business from you first talk to 7or 8 clients!

    Hi Joey, Very nicely produced and succinct considering how much you covered. Over 40 minutes is of course a bit long for many to stick with but I’m not sure if you intend to continue with that length in future. All made perfect sense and pretty damn generous of you (for FREE!)

    Nice shirt too. As always, love your work and good luck with it all. My book “Unleash Your Money Mojo” is coming along albeit a little slowly. Until next time. Pim x

    Hi Joanna
    Thankyou for the very valuable information. You have done this at exactly the right time for me because I have recently completed a Platform Skills course and am creating my first seminar so I look forward to hearing more and building my skills.



  5. Tamara

    Hey Jo,
    Very educational and a great start to the day. Can’t believe your giving this stuff away for free.
    Thank you so much!

  6. Hi Jo I’m sitting here at your blog still waiting for the video to load with no success. I have a pretty powerful and fast connection so I figure your video needs checking out. can you send it again thanks John

  7. Hi John,

    Thanks for the heads up. It looks like its working at our end here. I will get onto it with our fabulous techies and see what we can do.

    In the next couple of hours we are going to be splitting the video into 4 parts and uploading on youtube so if you subscribe to my youtube channel you’ll get notification as soon as they’re up.


    Sorry for the inconvenience- but persist! It’s worth it!


  8. HI Tam,

    Glad you liked it! I know. People keep telling me I shouldn’t give it away for free, but you can’t start a revolution without telling people now can you?!


  9. Hey Ian,

    That’s awesome. Which training was it? I’m sure you’ll find what’s to come very, very useful.

    There’s so many great speaking training organisations out there- but not a lot teach you how to make decent money from it.

    Enjoy what’s to come.



  10. Hey Pim,

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes- most of our videos are going to be less than 10 minutes, but we thought we’d start with a bang. Why the hell not I say?

    I really hope that people do take the time to stick with it because it’s really useful stuff. But for the most part from here on in it’ll be little chunks.

    (To say nothing of how much easier it will be to edit them! 😉

    Spread the good word Pim!


  11. Hey Julie-Anne,

    Yeah- it wasn’t all roses in the beginning, but the great thing about speaking is you can accelerate sooooo quickly.

    Go get em!

    Love Jo

  12. Hey Steve-

    Congrats Mr Number 1!

    Thanks for the words of support. I wholeheartedly agree. I think people are going to be a tad shocked with what we’re doing over the next few weeks! Heeheee!

    w-o-w, the best 40 min. I spent in a long-long time. Your presentation was clear, flow-y, informative, great body-language, etc. etc. I have seen you live in a seminar in Melbourne about 2 years ago during 21st. centery week-end seminar for women, but boy, you get better and better…

    Just a little “concern”. Any special suggestions for people for whom English is not a first language ? or..am I worrying pre-maturely..

    Secondly, was unable to suscribe to your future clips training on your site. Will you do me a favour and add my email address ???

    Again, thanx milion,



  14. terry

    gee, have mis-spelt ” milion” but you know what I mean…. Terry

  15. Hey Terry,

    Tahnks for the awesome feedback. I am so wrapped that you loved it. Hooray. I’ll have to tell the team. They’ve all been a little dubious about me releasing so much free stuff. But should I tell them to get over it?!

    Re English as a second language. Don’t worry! As with anything that impacts how you deliver your presentation, you just claim it up front in your presentation, tell the audience why you are like you are, get their permission for being that way and then they’ll relax and listen to every word. Have some fun with it.

    I’m a nut case on stage, so I always get permission for that upfront and then people know they can laugh along with me.

    Regarding the future clips, I’ll add you to our newsletter list and then you’ll be sure to get all of the links as we release them.



  16. Hi Jo,

    Great info and call to just get on with becoming a speaker!
