Have you ever thought of being a professional speaker? Many writers are also speakers and at the NSA (National Speakers Association) I have met many speakers who are also writers.
This weekend I attended the Summer Symposium for the NSA – Greater Los Angeles Chapter in Indian Wells, California, a beautiful resort city nestled in the Santa Rosa Mountains a few minutes from Palm Springs. The event was held at the Mira Monte Resort, a beautiful hotel that provided outstanding service and exquisite cuisine. The theme was “From Passion to Prosperity” and that’s exactly what the amazing speakers talked about. They taught us, inspired us, made us laugh and gave us tools and strategies to prosper. This was definitely a 5 Star event.
I enjoy attending and being an exhibitor at NSA events because I get to meet speakers, a wonderful group of people who love to speak and share information which is one of my favorite things to do. I enjoy speaking and am always delighted when invited to speak to a group. What do I speak about? Writing! There are so many benefits to speaking to groups including beginning new relationships, getting new clients and becoming better known in your industry.
Most speakers and business professionals know what a huge impact writing a book can make in their business but what they don’t know is how to get started. That’s where I come in, I show them how to transform a book idea in their head into a manuscript in their hands. Just like bloggers have a head start in the writing arena, speakers have an advantage when they talk their book. More about that in my next blog!
Are you a speaker? Are you a writer? Would you like to be both?
To your writing success!
