July 10, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE: with Andrea Gold, President of Gold Stars Speakers Bureau and the author of The Business of Successful Speaking: Proven Secrets to Becoming a Million Dollar Speaker

THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE: You have a brilliant message to share and you want to deliver that message in a bigger way, while creating a successful speaking business.  The professional speaking industry operates on two tracks: the celebrities, like Olympic medal winners or famous politicians, who can come in and immediately command top dollar because of their name recognition; and regular people, who have built their clientele over years of learning how to market themselves and provide good content. Public speaking is a difficult art to master. If you have previously achieved success with a presentation, a speech or even a wedding toast and are passionate about it, then you may have the potential to become a successful speaker. But, where do you start?

Andrea Gold is the President of Gold Stars Speakers Bureau. Andrea is well suited for the speaking business.Her work experience covers the areas of print and electronic media, newspaper reporting and photo-journalism, editing, sales, public relations, marketing, publishing, mail order, and executive management.

Andrea has authored and co-authored five books, including  The Business of Successful Speaking: Proven Secrets to Becoming a Million Dollar Speaker.
