And so I decided to take my years as a speaker and booker to share my experiences and resources to help other speakers take their careers to the next level. I've spent years interviewing some of the top speakers in the business to gain some insight into how they've made their living as professional story tellers and so this is more than a how to book. It's a look at my journey from telemarketer to author to radio host to magazine publisher to professional speaker and everything in between. It's the lessons I've learned and the people who've helped me get where I am today. "Whether you want to know how to write a one sheet, gain media exposure or learn which events are booking speakers and how to make contact with organizers; The Career Whisperer: Behind the podium is your go to book to take your speaking career to the next level.
