After I was done, I came off the stage, and out of 500 people…
… there were 12 who raised their hands and invested in my offer!
I was selling a $1,000 product, so I made an easy $12,000 flapping my inexperienced gums in just an hour’s worth of work…
The crazy part?
I wasn’t the first speaker, so I didn’t have “first-speaker advantage”.
Most of the audience didn’t know me and this was literally the first time they had ever heard my name.
And, yet, I sold over $12,000 worth of product (an online course that had almost zero fulfillment cost), without the usual “rah-rah“ pushy sales pitches.
I was over the moon!
Never before had I earned that much money in so little time.
So what happened next dropped like an anvil on my stomach…
Backstage, I ran into my personal friend and advisor Larry Winget…
… a LEGEND in the professional speaker game, a member of the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame with decades of experience.
Well, he looked at me the way a father would look at his 6-year old who was caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
