Aug 30, 2021


Today we are diving in and talking about Networking for Speakers. What does networking as a speaker mean? What does it mean to you? Does it mean meeting people like you at speaking events? 

Be sure to tune in as I share some fun ways for y’all to network as a speaker. And if y’all listen really close, I’ll share something super-secret about the waitlist for ACTIVATE. Get on the waitlist as there is something big coming. Y’all have until September 13th. But hurry because there is limited space with this limited-time offering. I’ll give you a hint, think discount! But don’t do that now. Let’s get ready to find out how to network for speakers.
