#065: How to Go from Author to Speaker with Amy Dix

Amy Dix is a two-time international best-selling author, artist, and international motivational speaker. Her company, Authority Speakers Agency books stages for speakers guaranteed. Amy has a fantastic story about how she built her business on the back end of a book and has a lot of wisdom to share. Amy started an event planning company while she was still working a full-time corporate job. She grew it very quickly and wound up selling that company and walked away from the event world for a while. When Amy finally quit her corporate job, she wrote a book and then eventually wrote a second one. The stage is where Amy feels at home and her current business was a natural result of her evolution.

Many authors wonder what it takes to become a speaker, and Amy says it “takes all kinds to make the world go ‘round.” You don’t have to have a bubbly, loud personality to be successful, as many folks have solid speaking careers with a more serious message. When people think about speaking, they usually think about a big stage, but our audiences reside everywhere, and it’s important to be open to all kinds of “stages”. Amy shares tips on what to do to book your first stages, how to profit from speaking engagements, and what makes a good talk.
