You know the moment: You’re browsing through the Internet looking for inspiration until you run into a piece of golden content that gives you life. Someone on this list likely posted that content. It’s hard to maintain momentum without a daily dose of inspiration. When a speaker said, “Motivation is like bathing, it is recommend daily” that hit me.
These speakers & coaches have found a way to stand out in their respective niche areas. Whether it is social media, speaking engagements, workshops, etc. When ranking these speakers the team took into account their momentum, content, and influence as the primary factors.
The speaking business is generally slow to move on new best practices because most speakers are comfortable with their usual way of doing business. Streaming has become a real factor in building your tribe and leveraging that into more speaking opportunities while also generating passive income.
Whether you are a new or established speaker I recommended you take notice of some of the things that are working for your colleagues. Also browse to see if their is a speaker you may want to co host a live or online event, feature on your motivational album, feature on your podcast, talk to your group, etc.
