#MentorMonday [Recap]: Being A Speaker Starts With Marshawn Evans And These 3 Steps

 

#MentorMonday started out with practical advice for your BIG dreams when Paul gave this tip for Twitter:

Depending on your posting frequency on Twitter, post more content, not less.  Paul has increased his postings on the social media platform and has been getting about 100,000 click throughs per day!  By tweeting at all times of the day he is seeing much better engagement on his quality content.

And then, drumroll please…

He also announced that his producer, Ella Rucker, is speaking at Social Media Week Lagos AND #MentorMonday alum Russ Terry, CEO of @CoachHostRadio, is a sponsor of #SMWMastermind at @SMWLagos.  #MentorMonday is about building a community and we are grateful that we are supporting each other.  Spreecast is also a proud sponsor of this huge step in growing the #MentorMonday family internationally.

Also, if you have signed up for Weekend Startup School, but haven’t gotten any response, please email Ella.  The Weekend Startup School has been expanded so if you would still like to participate or need more info you can go to WeekendStartupSchool.com.

Next up was our guest, Marshawn Evans.

In his intro, Paul testified that he has followed Marshawn’s advice for his public speaking career and has seen a rise in the income he is able to make.

Marshawn shared her story on how she became one of the highest paid and most in demand speakers in the world.  She started in daycare centers and then worked her way through the pageant circuit.

She advised the #MentorMonday community on one of the first things they need to do when they decide they want to start speaking.

Be clear on where you are in your speaking career.  You are an

1.  Aspiring speaker if you haven’t found your story or your brand.

2. Emerging speaker if you are in business, but have inconsistent income and inconsistent visibility.

3. Established influencer if you are having problems monetizing your influence.

Marshawn and her team are creating #Speakerpreneurs (trademarked phrase, of course).

She also gave information on how the “big four” speaking opportunities for beginner entrepreneurs can make you more money.

But the BEST gift to speakers from Marshawn’s visit to #MentorMonday? Access to her new, 3-part video series for FREE (you can find it here) early for the #MentorMonday family!

Just discovered you + #MentorMondays and now I'm going through some of the more recent episodes. Loved this session so much! I especially liked when she shared the different stages of speakers. I think I am between Stage 1 and Stage 2 - I do have a business and I have been invited to speak at some cool places (I'm even giving a TED Talk this weekend, which has me nervous as hell) but in some ways I'm still trying to find my voice, my style, and the best way to share my story. It's definitely a process!
