Becoming a Certified Original:Turn your expertise, experience, and one-of-kind essence into a signature speaker brand
These days it’s pretty easy to take a headshot, make a website, and call yourself a professional speaker — which is why the competition for the stages you dream about has never been tougher. The only way to stand out is to show up as a Certified Original. Speakers like Simon Sinek, Neen James, Mel Robbins. Personalities like Trevor Noah, Rachael Ray, and Kelly Clarkson mastered it. And you can, too. When you clarify your ideas, master you message and story, and know how to hit the stage (or screen) as the most honest version of yourself — the marketplace can’t help but notice.
Sell yourself, your ideas, and your movement without selling your soul.
