I get asked all the time how do you book speaking engagements?? (SB: post questions below..no DMs please and screenshot and send my one page speaker page to your community 🤗) You just START! Develop your niche and master it! Reach out to schools, community organizations, churches, non-profits, etc. to speak too. Take pictures and post about your content too. This helps to build your online presence in a saturated market.
You can search EventBrite too for speaking opportunities by emailing the event organizers to see if they need a speaker, moderator, panelist, etc.
Another tip, if you sell a product (book, coaching services, therapy services, tees, etc.), you can set up shop at the event to sell your products. (Not all opportunities need to be paid ones, so if it's free or their budget is low..you can make profit off your products). Network..network...network!!! Let people know what you do and you'd be surprise where it leads you! I went from attending events to being the speaker at events 🙌🏾 If you're a therapist, you have some much valuable gems to offer too. It's time for you to get PAID to SPEAK too.
Next up for me, speaking at a national conference at Rutgers University next week ☺️ #Speaker #blackmentalhealth #SelfCareGuru #TeenTherapist
