How To Build A Successful Speaking Career With Grant Baldwin: Episode 1

In this episode of the Blissdom Podcast with Alli Worthington, we’re joined by Grant Baldwin, nationally known speaker, podcaster, speaking coach, author, and Blissdom workshop speaker.

Grant’s wisdom is top notch when it comes to building your speaking career. In this episode, he shares:

  1. The foundational questions all speakers must ask themselves when launching their speaking career.

  2. How to assess and strategically align yourself with the right audience.

  3. Why a narrow and focused message is actually the best way to book speaking opportunities.

  4. Setting realistic goals as a speaker.

  5. Pricing strategies you might not be considering (but should!)

  6. And what Grant wishes he knew about pursuing a speaking career 10 years ago.

Some of our favorite quotes:

  • “When I started speaking, I felt like I had the potential but I needed the plan.”

  • “Speaking is a long-term relationship business and relationships take time.”

  • “Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. It is mentally, emotionally, spiritually exhausting. And so you need people around you. If you don’t have those people, they are going to be at Blissdom.”
