Building a Network? Who can You Serve? w/ Holley Gerth

Jan 11, 2021

“You have nothing to prove.” Words of wisdom from Holley Gerth.  As speakers, we often believe that every request to speak should be answered with ‘yes.’  And that's not always the case.  Holley shared wisdom on this topic “I'm not less than when I choose to do less.”

I know that right now you're saying to me “Mary, I just want to get some offers to speak!”  And I know how that feels – I remember those days of planting the seeds, making the calls and sending out the emails and then the WAITING & WAITING!

As you wait, see where can you serve. Another great idea from Holley, as she suggests that you build a network based on serving.  Is there an event that has a page you can help with?  Is there a fellow speaker who is just a bit farther along the journey and needs some people to help with her book launch?

Building a speaking business is all about serving – the audience and your fellow speakers.  How will you serve today?
