When I first started as a speaker, it took enormous amounts of time and effort to learn how to get speaking opportunities, but it paid off. I spoke nationally and internationally, landed my first keynote, appeared on San Diego's TODAY show and other local TV programs, and was featured on the front page of the travel section of America's seventh largest newspaper as well as in PARENTS magazine and on KPBS radio.
My successes were the direct result of taking consistent actionable steps and following through like a freight train.
My subject was a life changing three-month road trip I took my children on when they were 5, 9 and 11 years old (more at theroadscholarz.com). I was — and remain — deeply passionate about this experience and yet eventually I realized that I am far better suited running the show behind the curtain rather than standing in front of it. I started producing other speakers, helping them identify and land speaking gigs. And now, for you, all those hours, my painful learning curve, valuable lessons learned and knowledge gained, has been boiled down into a system that will help you book more speaking gigs. Whether you're an emerging speaker just starting out or a more seasoned veteran who wants to get more traction, my system will help you share your message with a wider audience.
Some of my clients have shared their gnawing fear with me: What if my message dies with me? What if I don't ever get it out to the world? If you're like them, you'll want to get your message out there in a BIG way. Having a step-by-step roadmap to the speaking world makes all the difference. Stop fretting about where to start and how much time it will take—it's all covered in my 32-page workbook How to Get More Speaking Gigs.
Finally, a system that gets you, The Talent, out on stage.

Just when I thought my TEDx talk was going to be a total bust, Gretchen understood the message I was trying to get out there and helped me hone my talk in a way that was still uniquely me! She saw what I was capable of before I could!
