Can you challenge the conventional wisdom and thrive? Phillip Van Hooser did. Listen as he explains why:
Taking any speech for any fee on your topic will serve to raise your fees
Negotiating fees can be a good thing
Bigger (as in staff, offices, and inventory) is not always better
Creating products could be a really lousy idea
Hiring a speech coach could hurt your performance, not help it
Paying big bucks for product development is just plain crazy
Letting clients go can get you more income
Refusing referral fees can result in even more business
Working with speakers bureaus might stunt your professional growth
Missing family birthdays, dance recitals, and ballgames may draw you closer to loved ones
Maybe you don't consider yourself a contrarian, but you occasionally find that some common "wisdom" touted by the self-proclaimed "gurus" of speaking, training, and consulting just doesn't fit your personal business model. Maybe you want to rethink and retool your business practices, but you're fearful of sacrificing where you are to get where you could be. If any of these statements ring true with you, our guest for this session will help you see a different perspective that might help you generate more passion, profits, and personal satisfaction from your work.
