5 Top Tips For Earning Speaking Gigs In Your Industry

KEY TAKEAWAYS COVERED IN THE PODCAST
  • Speaking at events is a great way boost your profile as a professional in your industry. Standing on stage to share your knowledge gives people the opinion that you are the expert or authority in that industry.
  • Start by networking with people who host small, local events. Once you start to network, you can ask whether or not they’re looking for speakers. Not only is it great for practice, but it helps get your name known.
  • The more you speak, the better you become. The last thing you want to do is get an amazing speaking opportunity and mess up because you haven’t had enough practice.
  • Attending conferences is a great way to network with speakers and event organisers. You need to experience the conferences you want to speak at in order to see whether or not you’re going to be a good fit. Not only that, but it will help you perfect your pitch for the following year.
  • You need to be sure you’re applying to speak on a topic you’re an expert in. If you have no content based on the topic you want to speak on, event organisers will see this from the beginning. They need to see that you’re an expert.
  • It’s important you’re telling people that you want to speak or that you are a speaker. Make sure you’re including speaker in your bio and posting on social media that you’re available.
  • Use images of you speaking to show that you can speak at events.
  • Consider creating a speaker section on your website.
  • Even if you’re speaking for free, you still need to get as much as you can out of the event as you can. Encourage people to tag you in a post, get photos and videos of you talking and screenshot any feedback you receive.
THE ONE THING YOU NEED TO REMEMBER ABOVE ALL ELSE…

Although you want to earn money for your speaking sessions, it’s okay to work for free. The benefit of you being stood there speaking to your perfect audience can outweigh any monetary benefits you will receive.

Speaker 1: (00:32)

Hello and welcome to this week's episode of the podcast. How have you been? So I've decided to do another solo episode this week. In all honesty, do you know, I'd love to make things up, but I can't. I'm just way too honest. I got so distracted with doing the academy and doing the launch for that that I didn't prebook enough people. So I constantly have a list of who's coming on, what I'm planning, what I'm doing, and I know who I want on. And some people haven't even been asked, some people are waiting to be booked in, but I always make sure I have this kind of list of people that are coming in and honestly I got so preoccupied that I just hadn't kind of focused on, “Okay, when's the next interview?” So anyway, hence why I'm doing a solo episode as it is and the day of recording this. I am literally recording an interview later on today. But I just thought I didn't want to rush it and I'd much rather do another solo and then throw you an interview next week.

(01:31)

You might be sat there thinking, Teresa, why did you say all that? We would have no idea. But you know what, like I said one, I'm a very honest person. Two I think you need to understand that everybody struggles sometimes getting organised. Things get in the way. And honestly this summer holiday seems to felt worse than any other. For one, it's been really long. My daughter's going to have been off for two months by the time she goes back to school. Now I'm not going to make it like I've had it the whole two months cause I haven't, she does do, um, a week with me and a week with her dad. So she does have half the time at Dad's. So I guess in that way I should be fine. However, when she's here, cause she's, well she's not only child, she's obviously got step siblings but they're much older and they're busy and they're doing stuff. So really when she's here, all her attention is aimed at me in terms of wanting my attention, wanting me to help with stuff. So it honestly has been so difficult.

(02:28)

And so this morning I've got to tell you this story. I've literally wrote an email that's going out today and that's, you're going to see if you're on my email list, but I've got to tell you this story cause it was ridiculous. So I'm sat in my office working and I'd shut the door, which I don't often do, but I wanted to shut the door cause I wanted to say to the rest of the house, I don't want you interrupting me. I've got stuff to do. Anyway, my daughter had got a friend staying over and I get this tap on the door. I say come in and it's her friend and she says that basically daughter is in her bedroom, stuck in her coat and is crying and I'm like say what? She stuck in her coat. I went in and she's got this new tick-tock a cane, which she loves and is very excited about and she to be fair to has been creating some really creative videos. So much so I've said to her that I'd like to do an Instagram story takeover with her cause she is really creative and she decided that she was going to do this story, that basically she was going to put her legs in her arms of a coat and pretend she was doing like a headstand or I don't actually know what the deal was, if I'm totally honest. But she basically put her legs in the arms of her coats and got them stuck. So she sat on the floor sobbing and I'm trying to get the arms off her feet, which are not coming. And I'm like, how on earth did you get these on? Cause they're not coming off. I am verging on either screaming at her, laughing or just like falling about thinking I can't do this anymore.

(04:06)

Anyway, after much messing around, I managed to get this coat off her legs without having to cut it. But honestly it just really made me think because then I sit down at my desk, I carry on working and I get tagged in a post by this big conference, this marketing conferences happening that I'm not speaking at. But the conference, there's a, there's a guy speaking called Philip Kotler and if you ever did any marketing formerly then you should recognise his name.

Speaker 1: (04:33)

My entire degree was talking about Philip Kotler because we used his book for everything. He's a real marketing genius, and if I'm totally honest, and this is going to sound awful, I didn't even realise he was still alive just because obviously I did my degree quite some time back anyway, so how you then get tagged in a post alongside this event or from this event that he's speaking at because they found my TedX talk and they've posted it. So it's just like, isn't that hilarious? One minute I go from rescuing my daughter's legs out of his shoe out of her codes, and the next minute I'm tagged in a post alongside a guy that I learned when I was at uni. Like honestly, life is crazy. Absolutely crazy. Anyway, let's get on with today's episode. Now I've told you about my slightly crazy morning so far, so today I am going to be talking about kind of coincidentally about how to get speaking gigs.

Speaker 1: (05:30)

Now when I say, coincidentally, it had nothing to do with the craziness and my daughter is more the fact that I was tagged in on a conference that was happening. But I am going to talk you through some of the tips that I've used to get speaking gigs over the time. But before we go into that, I want to talk about why you would even want to become a speaker.

 

Why You Should Want to Become A Speaker

 

Now I'm not sat here saying you've all got to do it because honestly it's not for everyone and there's good reason for that. You know, because some are not natural speakers and therefore trying to force everybody onto the stage will not be the necessarily the best advert for you or your business. Some people unlike me are really good writers and therefore books are absolute ease. Um, you know, or it might be something else, but I'm not saying that everybody has to speak on a stage.

Speaker 1: (06:18)

I'm just saying that if you do or if you're thinking about it, then this episode is going to be really good in terms of how you get some more opportunities cause they can be tough sometimes. But like I said, let me start with why speaking could be a good thing for you and your business. Now, one of the things that it really helps with is obviously if you're a personal brand or you are your business, because if you're going to stand on stage and talk, then that's obviously going to have a real positive impact on your business itself. But basically I want you to think back when you were last at a conference and what did you think about the people on stage? And I don't necessarily mean what did you think of their talk or how they presented. I mean, why do you think they were picked and what opinion does that give you of those people?

Speaker 1: (07:03)

Because what speaking does is it gives people the opinion that you are the expert or the authority in that industry because surely if you weren't, they wouldn't have you on that stage. If you didn't know exactly what you're talking about, then you wouldn't be on there. So speaking instantly makes people believe that you are an expert and authority. And in all honesty I hope you are because you know that's really where you should be. If you're going to be speaking on stage, don't get me wrong, I am a big advocate that if we have a question and answer session and someone asked me a question, I don't know the answer, I will happily say I don't know but contact me and I'll find the answer. I'll get it for you, but you are seen as the authority. Also another thing I want you to think about is you know when it's like when you go into pitch one to one or you go to sell your services.

Speaker 1: (08:01)

Often when you are doing the selling bit, it's not necessarily the physical thing that you are promoting. You're really promoting yourself at that point. If we in the agency ever had a client that wanted to meet me, we don't do so much of this now. In fact, I need to do an episode on about, How my businesses evolved and transformed, but we did have an agency of much more active than it is now and in those days I would go meet people. Well at that point they weren't necessarily coming to meet me to check out. I knew what I was talking about or the individual details they wanted to get a feel for me and what I was like and kind of have that back and forth thing. So imagine being stood in a room where everyone's listening to you almost as if not that you're pitching because I don't do many talks where I pitch, but that you are having that kind of one to one conversation with all of those people that you are the focus your onstage that all looking at you, they know your name.

Speaker 1: (08:56)

It's a great opportunity to, like I said, prove an expert but also build that personal brand. So if you heard episode 63 with Collin Boyd, we talked about selling from stage and I think I'm positive actually that I mentioned on there that I will do speaking for free and actually that's one of the reasons if I am stood in front of my most perfect audience, then I won't necessarily charge for that. Obviously expenses. If there's a lot of prep or different things you want me to do, then we might need to look at that. But actually if someone's running a marketing event and I am stood in front of by my most perfect audience, then actually the benefit of me being stood there speaking to all those people in that room kind of overtakes the money that I might be paid because I would rather be in that room itself.

Speaker 1: (09:47)

So definitely, definitely worth thinking about if you're trying to build your brand, if you're trying to build you as an expert, if you are wanting to become the authority on something, then speaking can really be a brilliant way in which to do this. And like I said, this has definitely been something that I have used in my business and now is part of my overall strategy in terms of building me and my business.

(10:10)

So I've got five tips for you today about how if you wanted to start speaking or you want to start being seeing more, some of the things in which you can do to start you off, uh, along your speaking path. Because I want to remind you that we don't all wake up one day and get to speak on the biggest stage with the best people being paid the most money because that rarely happens.

 

Tip #1: Start Small

 

Speaker 1: (10:33)

So let's kick off with tip number one. Perfect for tip number one, start small. Now, when I first started in my business, I never actually decided, okay, I'm going to become a speaker or I'm going to use speaking to market my business. But I just really liked it and somehow an opportunity came up and I can't even remember how, and then I kind of jumped on that and the next one and the next one, next one, and then suddenly realised I loved it and I do. I'm one of those weird people that actually, what does it like? There's a huge fear of people speaking in public. Mine, Oh my God, it just sets me alive. I love it. So, and you might learn to love it. Don't get me wrong, I always get nervous right before I go on stage, no matter how big or small the event is, I'm always nervous. But it's good because it shows I care. Anyway, side point, back to tip number one, start small.

(11:26)

So when I started, I spoke at loads and loads of teeny tiny local events. I went out to networking events. So you know, you know that there's lots of networking locally and I tried to get in front of those people and I tried to speak to those people and ask them if they wanted a speaker. Now often these kinds of events, if they are weekly or biweekly or monthly, they're going to be looking for speakers. They're going to need speakers. So more often than not, they're going to slap your hand off and they're gonna say yes, as long as they think you're going to be half decent and speaking or that you come across well enough or you know your stuff, then I'm sure they are going to literally bite your hand off.

Speaker 1: (12:07)

So that was the first thing I did. I literally spoke at loads of local networking events and I went to lots of these networking events when I first started my business. So my face started to get known and then obviously once I spoke at one that helped. Then going to others going, can I speak there? Can I speak there? Now as much as I would have loved to have gone on a big stage straight away, honestly, when I first started I was probably awful. I'm not even going to say that. I'm amazing there. Um, I'll leave it up to you to decide if you've ever seen me speak live. But obviously like the podcast, like anything, the more you do it, the more you get better at it. So that's why the, the smaller local stuff is really important because the last thing you want to do is get an amazing opportunity to speak somewhere phenomenal and then mess it up because you haven't had the practise.

Speaker 1: (12:53)

And also by then you kind of get into your, your routine. You get to understand how you like to speak or what you like to do. So for instance, I do not rehearse the batim. I do not have a script and I know that my good friends, Andrew and Pete, because there's two of them, they have to have a script because they need to know what the other one's saying. I don't ever have a script. I know roughly what I'm saying at every point, but I don't necessarily script it because if I tried to do a script and I went wrong, I'd mess up my entire thing. So for me it took those kind of smaller ones and all the different ones I did in order to kind of understand how I best liked to work.

(13:32)

And the other thing is you do it for free. So I wasn't paid ever for any of them. In fact, it's only in the last year or so that I would say that I was really getting paid for speaking, but I don't view it as a revenue income. I view it as a an opportunity thing, like I said, which is why I won't always be paid and why I don't always charge. So for me you're doing it for free or offering out as many local small groups and even if you think like up, no joke. I did a talk in on more than one occasion in a play barn to mums and I'm serious. There's a local networking group called Business Mums and I think it's actually the whole of the UK, but they meet in play barns. Now if you know me, you'd know I avoid play barns like the plague, even with my own child, even when she was little to go into a play barn.

Speaker 1: (14:22)

So the fact that I then went and did a talk in one seems a little bit crazy, but honestly to get that practise, to get your name out there and you also never know who sat in that room or who knows who is sat in that room. So for me, I've had some amazing people that have come to follow me and like my stuff and buy my stuff because they saw me speak in some teeny tiny little network event in the really early days. I've had clients come to me years later after me speaking somewhere. So like I said, do not sit there and think I'm too good for them because I promise you that everyone has to start somewhere. And also every opportunity is an opportunity. So please don't, please don't kind of sit there and think, no, I'm not doing that because actually if it wasn't for that, I don't think I'd be where I am. So yeah, that's my first tip. Start small, speak everywhere that you can.

 

Tip #2: Attend Lots of Conferences

 

(15:14)

Tip number two, it attend lots of conferences. Now this is for a few different reasons. One of the things that I did and now I do attend a lot of conferences anyway, but one of the reasons I did was because I wanted to see these other people speak. And in some I've sat there and I've gone, Oh wow, that's what I want to be like. And then in later ones I've sat there and gone, I could do that. And in later ones on I've sat there and thought I should be doing that because that is right up my street. So conferences have really helped me understand kind of the speaker circuit and seeing other speakers. But I tell you the other thing that conferences are grate for. If you want to speak at those conferences, attending them first is a great way to get your face in there, to network with the speakers, to network with the event organisers.

Speaker 1: (16:04)

So I have a really interesting, I say it's interesting, you don't find it interesting at all. We'll see. I have a story about my first American speaking Gig and how I got it. So I went out to, and in fact I'm going to start a bit earlier in this, right? I am a Lead Pages customer, you know that I love Lead Pages. I'll hook them up in the show notes. It's an affiliate link. I love them. They're awesome. And they did a UK meetup, which was unusual because most of the meetups that happen are in the States because a lot of these companies are states. So they did a UK meetup and I went along and I met who is now my very lovely friend and a team member, Ann, who at the time worked for Lead Pages and she was there and another lovely, lovely man was there with her.

Speaker 1: (16:52)

And I went along and I met these guys and I did this networking event and it was lovely and it was great to spend that time with them, but it just proves what opportunities can arise from a random Tuesday night in London at a networking. And as we're there, they were telling us they wanted to use the Hashtag Lead Pages London, I think it was anyway. And they were saying we're going to pick a winner and the winner gets one of two things. They either get Lead Pages, the system for a year for free, or they get a free ticket out to the conference, which was in Minneapolis. And I'd never been to an American conference before, I really wanted to go. And I said to them, I'm going to try and win this and if I win it, I'm not going to get the free lead pages account. I want to come to the conference. So anyway, I worked my backside off using that hashtag every opportunity I could, really tried to promote it and I won. Right. So that was the firsy thing. How crazy cool is that? So I want my customer to get to lead pages and they were very generous and they helped me out with a few of the little bits as well, which is great. I think they covered my accommodation and I think all that to pay for them as my flights, which was amazing. Anyway, went out to the conference, first American conference blew my mind like within the first 10 minutes I was like, Oh my word, this is a conference. The speakers were amazing. It was the first time I ever saw Pat Flynn, talk loads of other amazing speakers and I sat there and thought, this is it. This is what I'm meant to do.

Speaker 1: (18:24)

I'm going to be on that stage next year and the owner of Lead Pages was there and the event organisers were there and we got really kind of chatted to them and started to really mix with them and I said to them very arrogantly, which I say sometimes things arrogantly and I, I'm really not like that, but I said to them, I'm going to be on that stage next year. I'm going to be speaking on that stage next year and they were like, yeah, yeah. All right. Then the other thing that helped, I have to say was that I was British so I stood out a lot because there wasn't many British people out there. Also. I took like little British goodie bags to stand out, so I gave all the organisers and I gave the guy who ran Lead Pages at the time and a couple of team members.

Speaker 1: (19:04)

I gave them all these like little London and like British goody bag things that I'd made. Anyway, I said to them, I'm going to be speaking on that stage next year and low and behold one year later through various different reasons and working my bum off. I spoke on the stage in Minneapolis, my first ever conference in America and it was phenomenal and if I haven't, well if I hadn't have gone to that networking event and thought, well that's too much trouble to go down there. If I hadn't have won that competition, if I hadn't gone that first time and networked with them, there is no way on this earth I would have been on that stage the following year. So honestly, attending conferences and being in front of people is huge. It's definitely worth doing. You stand out way more than you might do if you're trying to email them or send them a show reel or whatever it might be.

Speaker 1: (19:55)

So for me, if you really do want to make a point of getting to a particular event, that's the thing you need to do. You need to show up in front of them, network with the organisers, see the speakers, and really kind of experience one, what is it they're trying to get from that? Like what did they want their audience to get and therefore what can you offer them so that you would be a good speaker? Okay.

 

Tip #3: Make Sure You’re Known for The Content You Want to Speak About

 

(20:16)

Tip Number three, make sure you're known for the content that you want to speak about. This might seem really idiotic because it's like, well, of course I'm going to be Teresa. However, in my industry it's massive. Like there is so much I could talk about. It's unbelievable. So the first few years of speaking, I spoke only about social media and therefore I was really focused around my content around social media and everything I did was strictly social media.

Speaker 1: (20:46)

Now in this last year, I've been doing a transition as you know, if you listen to the podcast, it's called Marketing That Converts. I talk more now on stage about the overall sort of marketing process. I talk about funnels, I talk about sales pages and webinars and email list building as well as social media. So you need to make sure that whatever content you're putting out there is the content that you're trying to reflect when you speak. So there's no good you saying, I want to speak on this subject. And then when someone goes and searches you, an event organiser looks for you that basically they're then finding you talking about x, y, zed, nothing to do with the thing that proves you're an expert in the thing that you are wanting to talk about. So go back and look at your content and think to yourself, am I putting the right content out there and am I putting out content at all? Because if they look for you, they're going to want evidence that you know what you're talking about. And if you're not putting regular content out, then they're really going to struggle to get the idea that you are an expert at that thing. Cause obviously they want to make sure they put on a good event, their tickets sales rely on it, and therefore they're not going to have the, Oh, they won't want to take them risk if they're not 100% sure.

 

Tip #4: Tell People You’re A Speaker Or You Want To Be one

 

(22:00)

Okay, let's get onto tip number four. You need to tell people, and that sounds like a really stupid thing to say, but if you don't tell people that you want to be a speaker, then how are they ever going to ask you to speak or invite you to speak or find you. So go back and look at places like your bio's. Have you put speaker in your bio?

Speaker 1: (22:24)

Now, I'm not saying lie, I'm not saying if you've never spoken before in your life and you've written the word speaker, then that's not ideal. However, if you've spoken locally, then put the word speaker in there. Why not? If you want to be a speaker, then put that in there. Also things like, are you posting on social media? Have to say, I'm really bad at this at saying, you know, looking for a speaker and I don't do it that often, but it doesn't hurt every so often. Also, the images that you're using in places, are they images of you speaking?, You know, are you giving people the right impression so that when they look at you and find you, they think, oh, this person is a speaker. The other thing that you want to do or you want to think about is where can they find out more about you speaking.

Speaker 1: (23:05)

So do you have a section on your website that is a speaker section. So I do and on there they can read a bit about who I am, what I speak about and get in touch with me type thing. Also, I've put together a pdf all about my speaking and what it entails and what they get if they hire me and my social reach and that sort of thing. So again, you might want to have a think about that in terms of what kind of things do you need to put out there and what kinds of things do you need to say to attract those people that are looking for speakers and where are you going to put that? You've got to put these things somewhere and if you are serious about becoming a speaker, then having a section on your website called speaker or something somewhere that people can read more about it is an absolute must.

Speaker 1: (23:54)

Okay. Onto the fifth and final tip, make use of every speaking opportunity. And what I mean by that is if, let's say you're speaking for free, you still want to try and get as much at that event as absolute possible. So often when we're trying to get other speaking, people want to see us speak or they want to have some kind of evidence that we are a speaker. So ask them to, if you can take photos, ask them if they're having a photographer and if they are, can you have access royalty for access to those photos of you? Ask them if they're filming it and can you have a copy of that film, that footage? If not, can you film it? And I've done this before at a local event. I went in the room, I set up literally my phone on a tripod, hooked up a lapel mic and recorded myself for loads of reasons.

 

Tip #5: Make Use of Every Speaking Opportunity

 

Speaker 1: (24:50)

In fact, I don't think I ever used that footage but, and I think, but it's great to see yourself back. It's great to hear how you saying and what you speak like which actually reminds me, I was listening to an episode, the Marry Hyatt episode, which was, hang on, cause I've literally said this off the cuff, I can't remember what episode it was. It was episode 77, it's an amazing episode. I loved it by the way, but I listened to the whole thing and Oh my word. I say so a million times and I used to be really bothered about this and I have done a little bit of speaker training in the past where they try really hard to get rid of your m's and ends and so's and whatever those words are you might say. And right now I'm over it. It's like, you know what? It is what it is. I try my hardest not to say it too much. I try my hardest not to use those filler words. And I find that the more natural I am on stage, as in the more relaxed I feel, the better it is. I'm not filling those words. And actually if you watch someone and they're quite nervous, they will chuck in those words, all those all the time. But I do use filler words. Everyone does. And sometimes if you're trying to be too perfect, it can sound robotic and I'm not natural. And I like being natural. So, so, so if I say so one or two times, oh maybe 30 then I'm not that bothered. As long as it's not taking away from the content. And I'm literally not saying it every other second. I just think, go with it. Don't stress out about it.

Speaker 1: (26:25)

Anyway, that wasn't what I was going to be talking about, but it just came up because it made me think about it. So ask if you can, film yourself, if you could have photos really make use of any social media. I often will say to people, not directly, I won't start my talk by going tag me in a post, but I will try and encourage them to at some point. So whether I challenged them, if I'm doing a talk on, uh, so I did one not that long ago on Instagram. Well that was easy cause I challenged them to do something and said tag me in so I can see. But obviously keep an eye on the Hashtag of that event. Screenshot any that come up about you. That's one of my favourite things about speaking. I love to see all that feedback. I have a folder on my desktop.

Speaker 1: (27:08)

It's basically, um, it's actually called Teresa Love, which might sound a little bit full of myself, but I remember someone saying it that it's, you know, your name and love as in people that are loving you and keep that for days of date, to keep that for days where you're sat there thinking, I'm rubbish at this, I'm no good at this. Or for those odd occasions where if you put yourself out there and speak more that you're going to get people saying mean things or behave not as nice as they should do. And then you can think, well that was that one, and look at all these others I've got, but also as well as just making you feel nice on a, on a grumpy day. It's also great for using in things like, this is what people thought of my talk or this is the kind of reaction my talk gets.

So try and use everything you can in terms of promoting yourself via that event before, during and after. But try and get as much out of that event as possible. Try and ask for as many things. Like I said, videos, images. The other thing that I would consider and definitely do go back and look at the interview everyone talked about with Colin Boyd. I'm going to have to remind myself that the number, again, 63. Episode 63 are link in the show notes. Go back and listen to that because the other thing you can do when you're charging nothing to speak is you can ask to sell from stage or ask if you can have a lead magnet or ask if you can do something that makes more value of that actual time out. Because I'm telling you the reason I now charge when I do charge so much is because it's not just about the 45 minutes you're on stage.

Speaker 1: (28:44)

It's about the time out of the business. So when I was in Cyprus, you know we had sort of five days out of the business. Granted I worked as I was over there, but it's the fact that you're flying in and out. It's the fact that you're not staying at home. It's the fact that I had to prepare that presentation. I might have to do research for it. I might have to tailor it, I might have to do whatever it is, so it's not like a two minute thing. Stand up and just speak. It takes a fair bit of work. It's not the necessarily the easiest thing I do. It's definitely one of the things I love more than anything though. So I'm hoping that I have given you lots of good ideas in terms of getting started on speaking. If it's for you then great. I definitely highly recommend it.

Speaker 1: (29:25)

Like I said, I love it and in all honesty, it really has helped my businesses in so many different ways. In fact, one of the last talks I did, and I know this is such a silly simple thing, but I got something like 70 something followers on Instagram in one day, which is kind of unheard of. So honestly, there's so many different things that help and different reasons why you should consider speaking. If you do, I would love to hear it. So please do get in touch. In fact, you know I love getting in touch with you. I love you putting stuff on Insta story, tagging me in, showing me that you're listening, so please, please do that. I always share it and always respond. So I would love to hear from you because you know the other reason why I love to hear from you guys is because there are very little stats, podcasts stats are not great if I'm honest.

Speaker 1: (30:15)

So I have very little stats in terms of who you are and what type of person you are and where you're from and what you like and all those good things that will help me then create episodes that you want to hear. So please do come and get in touch. I'm hoping that this is going to cause a flurry so I'll be very disappointed if it doesn't, but please do get in touch because I would love to hear from you and find out more about you and your business. Anyway, that is it. I am going to leave you. It's a short and sweet one today as often on my own just because I like to throw some stuff at you and then leave you to it for the rest of the day. Have a great week and I will see you next week back here with an interview about LinkedIn. Yes, I'd been waiting for linkedin. It's going to be a good one.
