When experience success it is a time for congratulations! Maybe even time for a celebration. But success is a time for one more important element! And that is to keep going.

douglas-vermeeren-ppm-59

Everyone experiences success from time to time. One could even say that it was luck. But when you keep going after the success and work according to strategy that when things really begin to happen in positive ways.

Interestingly enough not everything is going o work out but that’s the time to keep going even more. In fact, things that don’t always work out really successfully but are still done according to a predesigned strategy still make more success than a single win. Focus on moving closer to your goals rather than creating success.

12 areas profitable speakers get figured out in their business – Douglas Vermeeren

12 Areas you need to figure out if you are going to be a profitable speaker

By Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier

The title of Speaking Business Multiplier was given to me by one of my speaking students. It was one thing for me to create success in my own speaking career. We tend to create success for ourselves as a matter of survival. Often those who do amazing things for themselves are not great teachers when it comes to transferring that success to others. But I have figured out some systems that have helped others to do what I have done and help many others get on that path. The student that called me by this title was able to take his business from a steady moderate income comparable to a hobby to a full time career making over 7 figures.

I believe that you can too. Again I’ve seen it many times in the lives of my students and in other speakers around me. If you want to be successful in this business the first thing you need to do is start looking at it like a business.

As I’ve had the chance over the last 10 years or so to speak along side some of the industries top names I have seen many similarities in their business practices. I have also seen the differences in the way they do many things that make their business thrive while others experience difficulty.

img_0690I’ve worked with them and spent quite a bit of time with top speakers privately and behind the scenes. I can tell you where they invest their time and efforts to create results and most of what they do would surprise you. Why? Because you’re not doing it.

(And by the way although that’s Bob Proctor and I in a casino – that’s not where we made our money and work on our speaking business. lol. Although some people run their business by chance. We were in fact just walking through headed but some people don’t know where they are headed in their speaking business.)

Below are some of the core areas I believe need to be thought about and expanded on to create a balanced, sustainable and profitable speaking business.

Which do you think you would like to learn more about:
1)Learning and Preparing valuable content
2)Positioning yourself as an expert
3)building the right kinds of products
4)Building a sales funnel and business structure that works
5)Building an intro or preview session that converts
6)Selling from the stage
7)Finding more speaking opportunities
8)Attracting media coverage
9)Learning how to JV with other top speakers
10)How to use social media and others tools for expert positioning
11)Creating strong brand loyalty
12)Effective business structures and systems for speaking

Do you have these elements in your speaking business? Are they all there ? Are there some that are missing? Do you have questions about how to make some of these elements better?

istock_000022230045mediumOver the next while I’ll go into more detail on some of these activities and provide some practical ideas, concepts and strategies on how you can bring these things into your business and create more success.

More speaking business training too! Douglas Vermeeren

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
He speaks regularly to audiences of 1000s of people
He has spoken on nearly every continent on the globe
He is a regular featured expert on many of the top TV networks
He is featured on the covers of multiple personal development & success magazines per year
In his first six months as a speaker he earned more than 1.6 Million dollars
And he can show you how to do similar things in your career.
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….
*How to become a regular featured expert on TV, radio and in the media.
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!

Don’t get discouraged – Douglas Vermeeren

Don’t get discouraged

By Douglas Vermeeren

Things can go wrong. Things can go really wrong although you had good or even great intentions. Obstacles arise that you hadn’t planned for. People change their minds or sometimes lie to get their way. Your efforts don’t always produce the results you expected. feelings get hurt unintentionally or things you say or are said to you can misunderstood.  Sometimes even the weather won’t cooperate. And we can get discouraged when things like this happen. When we are discouraged its very difficult to perform at our best and see situations and opportunities clearly. we tend to paint everything with a cynical or less than enthusiastic point of view.

Things don’t always go perfect. Or do they?

130103025622-hopeless-discouraged-jobs-street-sign-monster

Often we are quick to judge whether an event or situation is positive or negative. What makes an even positive or negative? Most people would say the results or the way it makes me feel. This definition can be a little misleading. The problem with the hastiness of this definition is that it instantly has an effect of how we perform and what we are willing to believe. It immediately changes our desires and dedication to what we may be trying to do.

The truth of the matter is in handiness nearly everyone I have ever met have admitted that sometimes they are very grateful that certain things did not work out. They often are excited for the fact that because something didn’t work out they were able to discover better opportunities and situations waiting for them just ahead. So then was the negative experience really a negative experience or was it the seeds of a more positive opportunity just ahead?

This is why whenever something challenges comes along we need to do our best to deal with the matter at hand but recognize that this event may be the cataylst to unlock the more positive experience just a short distance away. When we get discouraged we shut off many possibilities.

Now I want to clarify I’m not saying its not okay to feel hurt, frustrated, maybe even angry at times. Those are natural human emotions and you will experience them. What I am saying is don’t get discouraged. What discouragement is defined as is the removal of the courage to move forward. DON’T DO IT.  Get mad, get angry, be hurt – just don’t quit.

discouraged_thumb

Students at Personal Power Mastery have expressed at times how had they quit they would never have found the perfect job. started the business that made them wealthy, found their soul mate and in one case I am aware of beat a terminal illness.

Life is not easy. That much I agree with.

But it is easier for those don’t get discouraged. When you move forward with hope things get more hopeful.

It is time to recognize that it is not our business to declare what a negative situation is. Because they seldom turn out that way in the long run. Now is your time – Make it count!

How do you think your life should be? – Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

As I have taught people around the world I have noticed several common feelings and thoughts around success. It didn’t matter if these people were from a corporate setting, high level executives, prisoners in a maximum security prison, students at a high school or members of a network marketing company. Many of the these common feelings and thought surrounding the ability to create success existed.

I am going to focus on one of these “Rules of success” today. And that rule is:

WE CREATE OUR LIFE TO BE  A REFLECTION OF HOW WE THINK LIFE SHOULD BE.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 54

Often people feel that life needs to be far more difficult and hard than it is. They feel that if they don’t create drama or challenge that the rewards life has to offer them aren’t really theirs. I have noticed that people consistently make attaining success much harder than it really needs to be. The truth of the matter is – Success isn’t hard if you’re committed to developing better habits. It’s no more complex than that.

People who believe it to be harder will seek out ways to pay the price beyond what is required. Or they will add steps that do not matter just to give themselves work to do. Success and achievement flow naturally to those who seek to simplify.

Those that think life should be easy understand that the ease of living comes from getting prepared and making smart choices. There are two stories I remember being told once although I can’t remember the source.

The first story is about two farmhands that come to a farmer for a job. The first  told of “how hard he could work and how good he was at solving problems.” The second simply said he “could sleep soundly when the storm came.” The farmer needed the help and was intrigued by both answers he hired both men. They both work hard but had very different methods of doing things.

work-farm

The one day a big storm came and the farmer understood what the second man meant in his interview. The first man had always worked hard and got the job done but at times it was sloppy and a little chaotic. The second man always seemed to finish first and was organized. When the storm came the scone man was prepared and could sleep because he had originally done the job correctly and with preparation against any challenge. The first man was out in the rain trying to fix things he had rushed through or done incorrectly.

Preparation and working correctly allow you to sleep in the storm while others become frantic.

Commercial-Stage_Coach

The second story is about a stagecoach company looking to hire drivers to take their passengers through the canyons of Arizona in the old west. The interviewer asked the first driver, “With your skill level how close can you drive to the edge of the cliff before you consider it unsafe?” The first driver responded, “I am skilled enough that I can even let the back wheels of the coach hang over and I will still have control.” The interviewer nodded and then asked the second driver the same question, “How close can you get tot the edge of the cliff?” This driver responded by saying, “I try to stay as far away from the cliff as I can.”

Which driver was hired?

Too many people in life look for how close they can get to trouble. That does not create a life of ease. It is a stressful place to be in and they may get lucky from time to time but it is dangerous place. Eventually things will go wrong.

Where do you put your stagecoach in life? Do you wait until the last minute to pay bills? Do you leave important tasks to do until later? Are you flirting with danger in your job, relationships, finances and more?

Your life is a reflection of how you think it should be.

Mindset creates movement – Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Our mindset is a critical factor in creating our successes. Through our mindset we consciously and subconsciously decide what we feel we are capable of, how easily we can progress and even what we are afraid of. If we don’t believe in our minds that we can we never will. In fact, if we our mindset is unsupportive we most likely won’t even try.

Mindset can also be compared to setting a thermostat. With a thermostat the temperature setting is determined and fixed. With mindset we make a resolution and commitment to a specific set of values and we act accordingly.

Douglas Vermeeren ppm 53

You’ve heard that if you believe then you can achieve it. This is true. But even more powerful that is that if you are committed you WILL do it. Level up your mindset, get determined and your will see better results begin to flow to you. It’s not enough to simply believe – YOU MUST GET COMMITTED and that starts with mindset.
