Just a quick shout out to Kent Julian - best wishes on your upcoming live and in person conference you are offering. If I wasn't asked to be a presenter on Erin Casey's cruise (it leaves two weeks from yesterday), I would have liked to have attended as it sounds like it is going to be a AWESOME time!!!

Hi Jen, please let me know what you think of the calendar. This is my first shot at this kind of product.

Comment by Bryan Bulmer on October 16, 2016 at 5:16pm

I know many of you know this already but beyond being a great speaker Kent is a great person!  He recently bought some shirts for his business through my wife.  Kent was great to work with during the entire process, which I believe is a strong indicator of great character.  I hope you take a minute and check out his up coming ADVANCE conference.

I don't know if this is appropriate or not. Please delete it if it's not. After trying to find a calendar that would work for my speaking, I decided to create my own. Here's what I wrote about it. This 2017 Calendar is designed with speakers in mind Each month it includes eight "gig sheets" logging all the information you need for your speaking engagements. It includes both a block format calendar to see the month at a glance as well as a list format calendar to record more information. If you're interested in checking it out click here.

Kevin...my first 2 thoughts are:

1) Find the center of influence people in that niche market and see who they hire to speak and why

2) Find speakers who serve this niche market and see who they serve and why

Kent, the two speaking engagements came through my church, one for the Men's Ministry Fall kickoff event and the other was for a monthly luncheon for the Seniors. Both groups were for about 100 people. I know that I was asked as a direct result of my book. People wanted to here more about our story of faith. The invitation for being an MC was from a ministry that is having their annual fund raising banquet and someone from their board was at one of the events I spoke at. They already had a speaker lined up but wanted me to be a part of it and be a presenter later for another event.

I know I have heard Dan say and you have echoed that a book will credibility to your speaking and your speaking will give credibility to a book. The Men's Ministry bought 100 books to give to each attendee! I sold several at the Senior's event.

I need some focus as to how to market for speaking opportunities in the niche that I am in...special needs parenting, inspirational, etc.

I have seen a surge in a link on my blog for my e-store with links to products for safety and security. With my contractor background I have come up with several modifications to stay one step ahead of our 15 year old who has a laser focus on the neighbors pool. Biometric locks, keypad locks, window modifications, etc. I have been toying with creating how-to videos of installation and application of different safety products. Many parent of autistic spectrum kids know of our struggle! I think this "funnel" may produce the opportunity to present as a workshop at special needs conferences.

Any input?
