Episode 126: How Do You Get Booked on the Big Stage?

Feb 6, 2023


Have you ever noticed the same speakers keep showing up at large Christian conferences or women’s events? “Yeah, Mary… why is that?” I know what you’re thinking. How are YOU ever going to get on that big stage if you’re always seeing the same speakers there? In my experience, there are three reasons for booking the same names over and over. Tune in to find out why that is…

When it comes to getting up on that big stage, there are three T’s to keep in mind. This episode explains what they are and how to tell if you have them.

Highlights from this episode include:
  • Who is on the big stage? (1:35)
  • Tested, trusted, and talented (2:28)
  • Your social media following isn’t everything (3:32)
  • The difference between being talented and being gifted (5:14)
  • What are the steps to landing on the big stage? (6:01)
  • Have you been tested? (6:40)
  • How trustworthy are you? (7:46)
  • Are you talented? (8:21)

If you want to be on the big stage, you have to start putting yourself out there. But please don’t limit yourself to those big stages; there are many speakers with thriving ministries and self-sustaining finances who are diligently serving their communities. If you’re called to be on the big stage, God will make it happen in His time. How do you feel about making it on the big stage: do you dream of it or is it not for you?

I’d love it if y’all came to join the conversation in the Facebook group – Take the Stage Speakers and take a moment to share with us! If you aren’t on Facebook, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share it with me.
