In the last few days people have reached out to me asking is there money to be made speaking at youth events or do you have to do it for free.
This quick will reveal the answer while explaining a key concept.
Here it goes, I was in California for an event and the day before my flight headed back to Atlanta, I met up with a friend I had not seen in years.
She invited some friends to her house for a cookout. Naturally the conversation turns to what do you do. When one of the ladies found out I was a speaker she got all excited and said when are you leaving because we have $3500 in our budget that we MUST get rid of in the next couple of days or we get less money in our budget next year.
Can you come out and speak to our school in the next couple of days?
I changed my flight and did the gig two days later. End of story!
YES, you can get paid to speak at youth events. Sidebar – organizations needing to spend budgets or they lose the money is VERY COMMON and if you are able to help them it’s a win-win for you and the organization.
I have the pleasure of speaking to corporate audiences and youth groups and everything in-between. Because of the variety of audiences, I have worked with over the years I had to create a booking / marketing process that works for all price points and every type of group.
During my upcoming 2-day LIVE conference Speaking For Newbies I will do a DEEP dive into the process and how you can use what I share to get paid to speak.

P.S. Oh I almost for got to mention one of the questions was about price and how much money can you get for speaking to youth. This is not the answer people want to hear but it’s the truth. It depends. Some groups have more some have less. The question is how do you present your talk in a way they want to book you and you get everything you can out of the opportunity. Click Here Now because during Speaking For Newbies LIVE I will pull back the curtain and reveal the truth about how to get paid to speak even if nobody has ever heard of you and you have never been paid to speak.
