Speakers love this community!

See some of the results that our speakers have achieved.

Frances Arnold Johnson

I didn’t expect it, but I did actually make money speaking the first year. Now, I have at least one PAID speaking opportunity lined up for 8 out of the next 12 months so far and several more promising opportunities are in the works. Darren and Ford turn a seemingly impossible subject – getting paid to speak – into a totally achievable task. I had no experience, and had never been paid to speak before. Now, in just a few short months of studying with Darren and Ford, this dream of getting paid to speak is beginning to blossom. Don’t reinvent the system and learn how to do this the hard way. Learn from the experts, as they show you the way, give you much needed feedback, and share million-dollar resources to help expedite your success. Could it get any better?

— Frances Arnold-Johnson, Edmonds, WA
Registered dietician who helps audiences love the foods that love them back

David Otey

As an emerging professional speaker, I am so grateful that Darren and Ford created the Get Paid to Speak Community! Between Darren’s knowledge of the speaking business and Ford’s marketing expertise, it is INSANE how much value they bring to GPTS. My efforts are now more focused; my business is growing and my speaking fees are up. Anyone who is serious about either launching or growing their speaking career would be insane not to take advantage of this resource!

— David Otey, Billings, MT
Award winning speaker on leadership and self-development

Melanie Szlucha

For what seems like a long time now I have been in the ‘if’ mode of my speaking business. I have been keeping my safety net intact and fervently wishing it would happen but never putting my full energies into it. After listening to [you], it’s turned into a ‘when’ and I can actually see it happening if I follow the tips and advice you provide. That’s a huge mind shift that I don’t think I would have made so suddenly if it weren’t for [you].

— Melanie Szlucha, Norwalk, CT
Former hiring manager and recruiter who helps audiences find great jobs and get hired

Charlotte Endorf

I was ridiculed by family members who told me that, one more time, I had my ‘head in the clouds.’ However, when I did start speaking professionally and then told those same people when I booked my 100th talk… they suddenly changed to my biggest supporters! But it was YOU… who made me cross that line of belief that I could do it.

— Charlotte Endorf, Norfolk, NE
Former Nebraska Mother of the Year, historian who delivers regional historical speeches

Brian Tracy

Get Paid to Speak is a lifeline for emerging speakers! As a fairly new speaker wishing to expand that part of my business, GPTS provides me with the support, the tools, the coaching and the accountability to keep me moving forward and making progress. It has given me hope, answered my questions, and made me feel that I am not alone in my quest to become a paid speaker. I strongly recommend that anyone with this same aspiration become a member of this collaborative, supportive, learning environment to help propel them toward their dream.

— Kristin Nickells
Certified Executive Coach, leading business speaker for dentists

So, how do I get started?

Bottom line, there are two ways to grow your speaking empire: from your own experience or from someone else's. Which one do you think will cost you more? Learning from your own experience will cost years of trial and error, frustration, and missed opportunities. You'll likely spend a small fortune trying to get your speaking business off the ground, all the while overlooking the most important keys to your success.

OR you can learn from someone else's experience. Don't waste your time-- get the shortcuts and answers you need from experts that have already made the mistakes, spent their own money, and learned the pitfalls and shortcuts to running a successful speaking business.

If you were to call Ford or Darren for 1 hour of consulting time, it starts at $500/hour and quickly jumps up to $10,000. In this community, you get direct access to them twice a month for a year-- as well as in their on-demand Training Library-- for less than $500 a year!
