How Would You Like to Captivate Your Audience, Attract Your Tribe, Build Authority and Use Speaking from the Stage to Grow Your Platform Exponentially by Becoming More Magnetic, More Memorable and More Powerful?
Creating that depth of connection and bond with my audience is what gets me invited to stages that people are paying to get on and positions me in front of my ideal clients over and over again.
I’ve created an intimate, safe, supportive and collaborative environment to teach you how to do just that – especially when so much speaking has gone virtual. People don’t have to suffer through your speech anymore to be polite; they can click away within seconds.
Command the Stage is a safe space for speakers with 0-5+ years of experience to move from good to legendary, from workshop leader to thought leader and from just another trainer to transformational powerhouse.
This 6-week, LIVE hands-on training is for those who know that they have a big message to share, but they’re not always sure of how to create expert positioning, connect the dots through storytelling or how to create a call to action so powerful that it gets people begging to work with you instead of you hoping, wishing and praying that someone will choose you instead of all of the other options in the marketplace.
You’ve ever watched a phenomenal speaker on stage or listened to someone on YouTube or a podcast who shifted something in your soul immediately and you thought to yourself, “I want to do that.”
Your business/brand is growing and you’re being invited to speak and interview more, but you feel more committed to your powerpoint and talking points than connected to the audience.
You realize that speaking from the stage refers to any place you can gather an audience (online thru FB or IG Lives and podcasts) and you want to be more powerful EVERY time you open your mouth.
You’re not scared to get in front of an audience, but your delivery doesn’t have people clamoring to speak to you and work with you afterwards.
You want sharing your story to be a stream of income for your business, but right now people don’t seem to want to pay you for your services – just use you for “exposure” and to fill in content.
You know you could charge more sooner, quicker, faster if you just understood what was blocking you from being seen as a thought leader versus an easily replaceable workshop facilitator.
You just know it’s time to get from behind the screen and take center stage where you belong.
You’re searching for a space where you can get immediate and customized feedback, support and best practices from a bonafide six-figure speaker who is still hand-selected to speak each and every month and is transparent about what works and what doesn’t.
You’ll get 6 Week Access to a Private Community where you can upload your homework every step of the way and get feedback from ME and your entire co-hort! (The networking in this international community of world-shakers is priceless. Some of your first interviews will come from this community!)
As a BONUS, we’ve added on weekly Clarity Calls with our Clarity Coach, who can help remove any confusion and connect the dots seamlessly. There’s also Alumni Ambassadors sprinkled throughout the private community to make sure you don’t get lost in the sauce!
Cheat Sheets to support learning! In addition to your CTS Action Guide, you’ll get more resources to help you craft a compelling talk. The marketplace is tired of hearing coaches, consultants and authors say they want to “inspire, motivate and empower.” Yea, yea. We know. There’s so many other ways to demonstrate value, credibility, authority, passion and purpose and I’ll show you how!
* Access to my Podcast with Purpose Training. You’ll learn the three-tier approach I used to build the Redefining Wealth Podcast to over 10 million downloads in 4 years! It’s more than a mic and cool cover art. You need to be intentional about your message and once you gain clarity from Command the Stage, launching your own podcast might feel like the next best step! This training will help you get ready!
WHAT’S THE INVESTMENT:
This is a 6-Week LIVE Hands-On Training Created for the Next Generation of Transformational Speakers.
It’s ONLY for emerging speakers who have 0-5+ years of experience and are committed to honoring the call on their lives to share their message in a way that will impact the masses.
I’ve been speaking since 2004, but didn’t know it would become the one platform that would allow me to create such impact and amazing income until 2014.
I invested $20,000+ in my first speaking coach. I saw her speak at a conference and sat there in awe thinking, “I want to do that.” I found out what it would take to have her sit with me for one full VIP Day (6 hours) and deconstruct my talk so I could go from good to great!
To be honest, I only implemented a ⅓ of what she taught me that January in 2014 and since then, I’ve gone on to create multiple mid-six figures as a speaker alone. I’ve shared the stage with renowned speakers like Magic Johnson, Laila Ali, Eric Thomas, Devon Franklin, Pat Flynn, Lisa Nichols, Steve Harvey, Kathy Buckley, Tim Storey, Lisa Bilyeu, TD Jakes, Lori Harder, Trent Shelton to name a few!
I’ve added SO MUCH to that groundwork since then and I’ve used the technique to command attention on television, radio, podcast interviews and beyond.
Just like me, once you know it, you know it. And you’ll be able to use it over and over and over again to create more impact, influence and income in your business for a fraction of what I invested in my first speaking coach.
The core content of CTS is taught over the 6 week virtual training. Registrants who want to deepen their learning and have a chance to practice their talks on a virtual stage and receive feedback to deepen their speaking careers can choose to upgrade to the 1 Day Live Virtual Experience taking place Online November 2nd 2022.
Whether you're looking to sharpen your speaking skills in a corporate career or in an entrepreneurial effort, we all need to know how to enroll people in our vision! You don't have to become a professional speaker to reap the benefits of articulating who you are and what you need or want with power and clarity.
We've had graduates use this framework to gain lucrative raises and promotions on their jobs! The went from invisible to being called on regularly to represent their department. Now that's transformation!

The truth is, however, that the assignments usually take some time to ponder. Don’t be quick to just finish them to say you did. You want to take as much time as you need to do this work thoroughly. Wouldn’t you expect that from a process that’ll transform the way you speak forever?
