More speaking business training too! Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

fear-of-public-speaking-imageLately I’ve had a lot of event organizers hire to me to participate in several upcoming events designed to help speakers grow their business. As many know I do a lot of speaker training and have been doing one on one coaching in this capacity for years. As I’ve done these events and met with speakers I’ve had a lot of people tell me that although they love the motivational articles and ideas that I share they would appreciate it if I’d share more tips and tools from speakers along the way. I am going to attempt to do that.

While I own the domain and brand high profit Speaker I had something fun happen the other day and it kind of stuck. One of my students that has been in my one on one coaching for speakers had a meeting with me recently. They have experienced quite a bit of success. They have some really great content and with a little guidance from me they have been able to build a very profitable 6 figure speaking company in a relatively short period of time.  In our last meeting he said, “You are the Speaking Business Multiplier.” I’d never heard that term before but I actually really thought it was cool.

As I share these speaker tips and other materials I am going to adopt that title of Speaking Business Multiplier. I like it. It’s what I want to do for the speakers that work for me. It describes my mission perfectly.

I want to clarify that’s not just about money in my mind though. It about multiplying everything that is good in your speaking business. I want o help you have more opportunities, more stages, more products sold, more students, more JV opportunities, more media, more people in you audience, more countries visited,  more recognition, more unique content, more power more of everything!!!! Where does it stop? I don’t know but by bringing my over 10 years experience I hope to make some massive differences for people.

I bought the domain the Speaking Business Multiplier so you will see that up soon and I will add tools there as it goes live.

For those unfamiliar with my work here a little about me and what I teach taken from some of the information we share about our courses. If you are a speaker, coach or training and you want to take your business to the next level I don’t see many people out there teaching about the BUSINESS of speaking. Most teach about how to overcome fear of speaking publicly or how to “Rock” the stage. (While there’s probably value in the 50+ courses claiming to offer this – I don’t really know what that means.)  After having a look around there really isn’t anyone who does what I do. If you really want to grow your speaking business we should meet!

Here’s what others are saying about me:

He is the author of 3 books in the influential Guerrilla Marketing series!
He is the author of books in the Dummies series
He is the creator of 3 of the top personal development movies of all time.
He has shared the stage with nearly every top name in personal development today

In this presentation you’ll learn:

*Why MOST SPEAKERS STAY BROKE and what you can do to position yourself for success.
*How to partner and Joint venture with some of the most influential speakers in the world today!
(In my movies The Opus, The Gratitude Experiment and The Treasure Map I had the support of the following well-know leaders. I will reveal the secrets behind why they were willing to help me:
Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, John Demartini, Marie Diamond, John Gray, Marci Shimoff, Bob Doyle, Morris Goodman, Raymond Aaron, Marshall Sylver, Loral Langemeier, Randy Gage, Mary Morrissey and others….

I have a strategy and formal that has been getting me booked for years. Click here to see some of my media appearances on FOX, FOX BUSINESS, CNN, NBC, ABC, CTV and others – https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=douglas+vermeeren
*How to get on more stages and make big money with your programs
I bought this Ferrari as a gift for myself as a result of one event I did in Las Vegas. You can do the same with my easy to follow system. Me and my reward for speaking

*How to develop presentations and products that people are lining up to have! At one of my movie premieres we had more than 6,000 people in attendance. Most speakers have never seen that many people at an event before! Imagine that those kinds of numbers would be interested to hear what you have to say!

The 4 pillars of reaching any goal

The 4 pillars of reaching any goal
By Douglas Vermeeren

th-1

I am a firm believer that a goal that is well articulated is the first and most important step to achieving your goals. In fact, a mantra often repeated at my seminars is that, “a goal that is specific and clear, becomes attainable and near.” However after conducted extensive interviews and research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers the description is not only the first step. It’s also where most people stop.

My research has determined that in order for a goal to be achieved there are 4 other essential factors that must be included with the description in order to make it achievable.

Naturally I am assuming that you are already committed to the goal and your reasons why you want that goal are big enough for you personally. The idea that you have to be it before can have it is also true. But I don’t believe you have to be it in order to start going after it. What you will become will take place during the pursuit of the goal. Perfectionists need not apply.

So here are the four things that I have seen consistently repeated among top achievers when they set and achieve their goals. (And naturally I see people struggle all the time when they are missing one of these things.) Consider these four elements like legs on a table. Without all four the table isn’t able to stand properly.

1)Strategies & techniques
All goals require you to learn and employ techniques and strategies that are specific to that goal. You will need to gain that specialized knowledge and skill set that will enable you to effective accomplish the goal.

thOne of my original success interviews was former NHL player and Hockey Night in Canada TV host Kelly Hrudey. When Kelly was a boy he was discouraged because he was not that great of a hockey player. He wanted to measure up to the others so bad that he dedicated hours and hours of practice to learn the art of goaltending. As a boy these skills did not come easy but after years of practice and practice he began to surpass the others around him. Getting to playing professional hockey is very competitive. The Huffington post did a study on how hard it is to make it into the NHL. They found that only 0.16 of the hockey players who had NHL dreams ever made it into the league and only 0.02 percent will ever be able to make a career out of Hockey.

kellyhrudeyKelly gained the skills to the level that not only did he get drafted into the NHL but he played for several teams, the New york Islanders, the Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks. He learned the game so well that he is now a TV commentator on Sportsnet.

It’s not enough to just have the dream or even the belief that you can achieve your goal. You must gain the skills too.

2) Effort
All goals require new habits and a rearranging of priorities. If it was something that was already part of your everyday life you would have accomplished it already. One of the challenges most people experience when pursuing a major goal is that they are often surprised at the amount of hard work or effort. The hours can be long and the investment of effort, resources and even money can be extensive.

Recently I met with a new realtor who had set a goal to become on of the top agents in his city. As he studied those in his area who were consider the top agents he was immediately startled at the hourly commitments that these individuals were putting into their business. He was also astonished at how much they invested in marketing. Determined to reach his goal to be among them he began to move forward with the same fierceness. While he is not yet considered the top in his town he is definitely on his way there. Recognize that effort will be required and if you want to rise above everybody else you have got to be willing to do more than anyone else.

3) Perseverance
Even if you gain the skills and put in effort getting to most high level goals require perseverance over time. Perseverance however means more than just continuing and putting in your time. It also means hanging in there when things get difficult and maybe even appear hopeless. Everyone has heard the story of all the challenges that Edison had working with the lightbulb. It is said that he failed more than 10,000 times before he found a way to stabilize the filament. While that may or may not have been the case there are countless examples of obstacles that all top achievers have experienced.

These challenges are not just experienced by those in our history books. Challenges will always be present when you are stretching to reach new endeavors. You may experience personal learning curves you as you struggle to apply new ideas and concepts. You may experience moments of doubt that come through your own feelings or from those close to you. You may experience resistance from customers who are unsure of your offering. You may even experience conflict with competition as they try to keep you out of their business. All of these obstacles and more will try you to the core to see how bad you really want what your trying for.

Morris-GoodmanSeveral courageous people come to my mind when it comes to perseverance. One that is worth mentioning here is my friend Morris Goodman. Some of you may have seen him in the hit movie The Secret or my film The Opus. Morris had been a successful insurance broker and decides to buy himself a small airplane. One his very first solo flight he had a power failure and crashes the plane into some power lines. As a result of the accident he broke his neck and crushed his spinal cord. He immediately lost all ability to perform every single bodily function except blinking his eyes. The doctors doubted that he would even survive…but somehow he did.

Through a code of blinking and using a chart to identify letters on a chart Morris spelled out that he would walk again. The doctors doubted it would ever happen. He then surprised them even further by saying he would walk again by Christmas. No only did the doctors doubt but they even suggested he was dilusional.

This is where the lesson in perseverance appears. Morris began little by little to work on whatever muscles he could get to respond. There were days it was painful. There were days when it appeared that no progress occurred. There were discouraging days when he felt like quitting. But he didn’t. Overtime muscles began to respond and remember. He worked and worked hard. He never gave up.

Then came Christmas and although he wasn’t fully walking Morris did walk those steps out the front door of the hospital as promised. Today he still struggles and things aren’t back to normal. they probably never will be. But he continues to persevere he is still setting and achieving goals today.

4) Support
The things that I find most people seem to forget in trying to achieve their goals is that they are never alone. Mount Everest has never been climbed by a single individual without a team and the same is true of big goals in real life. All major and massive things require support. It is important when you set out to achieve your biggest goals that you also recognize that support and help is available to you too. And the amazing thing is that this help is far more accessible than most people believe.

The first step to acquiring help to get to your goals comes from being extremely clear about your mission and what you a re trying to achieve. If you know how to articulate your mission clearly and sustinctly you can ask for help from others in a way that they can say yes.

In my own personal life I have been consistently surprised at how many people are willing to help you solve problems and get to your goals. When I created my first film The Opus there were many new challenges to overcome. many people thought that I had bit off far more than I could chew. Especially when I expressed who I wanted involved and the scope of the project. But there were those that believed in me and my mission. I’ll never forget specifically how supportive Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen were when it came to shooting the film. They made themselves very available in the midst of a busy conference. Joe Vitale wrote amazing blogs posts promoting the film and sent out notices through his network. Marci Shimoff came and spoke for us at our premiere launch and helped get the word out. John Demartini has promoted the film actively around the world and has since appeared in two other of my films. There were so many others that helped as well that I wish I could name. But as I think back about how the help was able to arrive it was all connected to my ability to articulate when support I needed.

Great things are always built by synergy rather than selfishness. Too often those who fail to get to their goals fail because they are trying to hang onto all the praise, money, opportunity or power. There is truth to the old saying that says it’s amazing what can be accomplished when we don’t care who gets the credit.

No matter what your goals are the above 4 pillars will help you. Consider them carefully and explore how you can implement them more directly in your pursuit of your goal and you will achieve success.

Douglas Vermeeren is not your ordinary filmmaker. Over the last decade he has directed and produced three of the most influential personal development movies.

His first film The Opus came out in 2008 and featured several of the top personal development leaders to answer the question of how to take the vision of what you want for your life and build it into a workable plan and then create it as a reality in your life. The film came out hot on the heels of the groundbreaking movie The Secret and featured many of the same cast answering questions many were felt unanswered in The Secret. The Opus was translated into more than 23 languages worldwide and has been rated among the top 5 most influential personal development films of all time.

His second film The Gratitude Experiment explored the relationship between the power of gratitude and tangible appearance of positive outcomes in reality. This film also featured many of the top thought leaders in personal development of today. The film attained theatrical release in many territories and secured Vermeeren a position as one of the top inspirational directors in the genre. As a result of the success behind The Gratitude Experiment Vermeeren also became a regular in the media talking about the power of Gratitude and the direction of inspirational media.

Recently his latest film The Treasure Map was released to great critical success. The film has had theatrical release in many locations including the United Kingdom. The film explores the abundance mindset and explores the exact actions that are used today to create wealth and abundance. Vermeeren has proven that in addition to creating powerful life changing films that he is indeed a trend setter in the content that is appearing in this genre. The Treasure Map is still making the rounds through many art house cinemas and special exclusive screenings through out the US, Canada, UK and Australia.

While Vermeeren claims that he is far from complete in what he wants to create in this genre his next project is taking a gigantic leap into something very different. For his next film Vermeeren has announced that he will be going to camera on a narrative feature in May. That feature will be anything but inspirational. It will be a zombie movie. Fans and critics alike are stunned at this change in direction and are eagerly awaiting what the results will be.

This new film titled Creepy Zombies is slated to have an October release and will have a limited theatrical release. For more information on this newest project go to http://www.CreepyZombies.com for more information on Douglas Vermeeren go to http://www.DouglasVermeeren.com

leave a comment »

You may have seen the hit film The Secret or the follow up films produced by Douglas Vermeeren, The Opus and The Gratitude Experiment. But you’ve never seen anything like this. This is the first film dedicated exclusively to teaching about wealth and abundance. “Money is not the root of all evil. It’s actually the seed that let’s you accomplish your dreams,” Revealed director and producer Vermeeren, “Money is the ingredient that closes or opens doors to how far you can achieve what you really want in life.”

While he goes on to suggest that money should not be worshipped or put in the place of family or other high priority items he and his speakers from the film suggest that money allows everything worthwhile and worthy to be more in your life. “Money gives you the freedom to make better choices.” Is a reoccurring theme from the movie.
