Chapter Event March – Joel Block

March 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Stop Hustling Gigs and Start Building a Business

with Joel Block

About the Event:

Join us for networking from 12:00pm-1:00pm. The meeting will start promptly at 1:00pm and end at 4:00pm.

Many speakers say they have a business, but in reality, all they’ve done is create a job for themselves.

If you ask yourself, “Does your business make the money or are you doing all the work?” and the answer is that you’re doing all the work- it’s time to make some changes!

The overwhelming reason for speaking business failure is a failure to run your speaking business like the most successful businesses are run.

But that stops as soon as you Stop Hustling Gigs and Start Building a Business.

Great businesses:

  • Have recurring revenue;
  • Tend not to be dependent on their owners;
  • Are crystal clear in their messaging about the cause, mission and vision of the enterprise; and
  • The VERY best can be sold to a buyer.

No wonder speakers struggle! But you can build a great speaking business – one that you can depend on to financially take care of you and your family long into the future.

In this program, speaker, long-time venture capitalist, and hedge fund manager, Joel Block, CPA, CSP will share ideas and approaches that will help you catapult your speaking business in ways you cannot imagine.

Your takeaways from this program will include:

  • How to convey your message fast – while avoiding the pitfalls that sink 99% of your competitors;
  • A formula to develop many streams of revenue from your core business strategy;
  • The 3 magic words that will change the trajectory of your business and career;
  • A way of looking at business that is so simple, it will make your day-to-day tasks obvious and crystal clear;
  • A formula for grabbing any prospect’s attention in under 10 seconds;
  • Multiple sure-fire ways to increase your sales “batting average”;
  • 7 critical questions to ask that will make your business bullet-proof yet ready for growth; and
  • The single strategy Joel uses every day that he credits for much of his success.

This program moves fast so come ready to have your mind expanded in ways you can’t imagine! And to make sure we have some fun, every attendee will leave the program with a valuable gift from Joel. NSA chapters coast-to-coast are waiting in line to bring Joel and his program to their community. We are lucky to bring him in so bring your friends and colleagues to this one of a kind event.

About the Speaker:

Joel Block, CPA, CSP is a long-time venture capitalist and hedge fund manager (gobbledygook for professional investor) who lives in a Shark Tank world like what you see on TV. Companies regularly pitch ideas to Joel’s company, looking for business capital so he has learned to spot likely winners – frequently in 3 minutes or less and sometimes in under 30 seconds.

He has been speaking on business and financial topics for 15+ years and as a money business insider, Joel has put together more than 40 different companies; he has advised hundreds more and he has taught thousands of people innovative ways to think about profit, leadership, and sales. He has had a few successful exits too, including one that he sold to a Fortune 500. Joel is a media guest and regular speaker on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley sharing monetary strategies with the nation’s financial elite.

Joel’s understanding of business building is evidenced by how artfully he breaks down complex topics so his audiences can understand them. His mission is to help entrepreneurs (including speakers) succeed in business so they can live the American dream and then continue the cycle of prosperity by paying success and mentorship forward.
