You can tell a lot about a person by asking them what are their favorite movies. Mine are House Guest (starring Sinbad), Mahogany (starring Diana Ross) and Coming to America (starring Eddie Murphy). I can recite most of the lines from all those movies. But you can see the common thread here: all the movies have an underdog that “makes it” and makes it big – just because they were being their authentic self.
That’s what SPEAKERS MAGAZINE is all about. It’s about showcasing people that may seem ordinary but they are gifted and have extraordinary gifts to share with the world. Our publication’s mission is to introduce you to these talented, motivated and outstanding speakers.
We also want our speakers to network with each other. That’s why we partnered up with the Black Speakers Network. One of the most important things you can do for your speaking career is to get to know other speakers so you can learn from them.
You should also make a list of places and events that you’d like to speak at. Once you know what events to target and you can keep your eyes open for when speaker applications are accepted.
Also, check out the websites of our featured speakers in each issue and see where they’ve spoken. Network with them and ask them for any advice on how you can get your foot in the of door events where they’ve spoken.
Finally, make sure you follow SPEAKERS on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and join our eMail list by visiting our website. We often drop knowledge and tips on how to build your platform and get more visibility.
Support other speakers – it’s all about sharing, service and making a difference.
I believe we’re all “superheroes” and there’s always a happy ending. Check out the issue, I’d love to hear your feedback and let me know if you want to be in the next issue. www.SpeakersMagazine.net
