Here is the first of 4 Key Questions You Must Ask Yourself Before You Settle On a Niche For Your Speaking. 

Are other people interested in this topic?

  1. I was basically wanting to know if you ever considered modifying the design of your site? Its well written; I really like what you have got to state. But maybe you could create a a bit more in the way of written content so people could connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two images. Maybe you can space it out better?

  2. Fantastic read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little study on that. And he really bought me lunch because I located it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

  3. Hello.This article was extremely motivating, particularly since I was investigating for thoughts on this matter last Wednesday.

  4. Oh my goodness! Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the content home a bit, besides that, this is great blog post. A great read. I will definitely be back.

  5. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  6. I dont know what it is about this blog that turns me off so much, but you just dont seem to get me excited. I dont know if its the lack of content or just the way you wrote it. But you really dont seem to understand that your readers may not agree with you. Youre really just too out there for me.
