Super Saturday Speaking Success Seminar
for Emerging Speakers


When I started in the speaking business, I had no other options!

I was a nightclub singer who had just been fired and replaced by a karaoke machine! 

I was determined...I’d never let someone else determine my destiny ever again in life!

From being fired and replaced by a karaoke machine to inspiring millions around the world, is not by chance, nor by sheer luck!

It took desire, dogged determination, hard work and continuous learning.


It took learning from mentors and other people who had actually done what I wanted to do. I was not the most talented or the smartest, but I was teachable and I grew my business as a result.  

And if I can do it, I know you can do it, too! You just need to know what to do and how to do it.

Like many of you, I started my “working life” doing something completely different and less than satisfying than what I do now.

After being fired from my job as a nightclub singer, I took the leap of faith into the speaking business.

I struggled to work the business and keep the lights on and the phones on as I learned and improved my craft!  

Now, my life as a professional speaker affords me and my wife the opportunity to travel the globe inspiring millions to do more, be more and achieve more, using the principles I’ve learned and continue to implement.

In 2006, I got the opportunity to work with Ford Motors in their comeback from the brink of bankruptcy and worked with them for three years and witnessed how they were about to reject a government bailout and go on to billion dollar profits.   

For the last few years, I've had the opportunity to speak to thousands of people as part of the National Get Motivated Tour, where I replaced the legendary Zig Ziglar upon his passing. I’ve shared the stage with Les Brown, Daymond John, Tom Hopkins, Lou Ferrigno and many more super star speakers.

My life has been busy since the tour and I am grateful, but unfortunately, it has not allowed me the time to do the speaker training events I used to do. If someone had not helped me, I would not be here today.

So, with a break in my schedule, I believe, NOW is the time for my team and I to share the professional speaking lessons I’ve learned from my time at Ford Motors and The Get Motivated Tour!  

So, join us for our Super Saturday of Speaking Success Seminar on February 24, 2018.

I will share quality time with you and answer your most important questions on building a successful speaking business.

From “Free” To “Fee”

I started speaking in schools as a drug prevention coordinator, speaking to children about staying away from drugs. That was where I found my “voice.”

Then I began to get invitations to speak at churches, community centers and rallies where usually there was no speaking fee. 

But, I sold my homemade cassette tapes! Often, people at these events had opportunities to hire me! I was well on my way from “free” to real “fee” paid speaking dates! 

Strategies to Go from Unknown to Known

Becoming known as a professional speaker can be very frustrating, for it can take up valuable time and resources, especially if you don’t know –

  • Who to contact

  • How to contact them  

  • What information you should share!

When I began to speak professionally, I was so hungry…figuratively and literally, I went from unknown to known in the speaking business in a year! I will share with you how I made this happen. But I must warn you: this requires guts!!

“Art” vs. “Business” of Speaking

Willie on stage

Speaking is an art. This “art” must be refined by constant speaking and learning; more learning creates more speaking. You must be passionate about your message and be willing to deliver it anywhere and everywhere!  

Your story must be told. Your experiences and the principles learned from them must be shared with the world.

Yet, professional speaking is a business, and the art of speaking and the business of speaking are very different! 

Knowing how to write agreements and negotiate your fees are necessary to help you make sustainable money in the speaking business!

I’ll share strategies with you to help you achieve those goals, as well as checklists for building your back office support team.

“You made the business ‘real’ for me. You shared nuances of this career that only comes with your years of experiences. It was information I hadn’t gotten from the other trainings I’ve taken. I got so much out of this class and it has made a serious dent in my learning curve. You helped me decide and focus on what I wanted out of this business and how to go about getting it!”
