09 Mar Here’s how to get paid to speak about spirituality.
Is it your dream to be paid to speak about your spiritual expertise?
Do you see yourself up there, with a sea of smiling, expectant and interested faces looking back at you whilst you share your wisdom and insights?
Picture it. You are speaking beautifully and eloquently and everyone is having a great time listening to you – you’re touching their hearts and minds, and savouring every moment. When you’re done, you receive a raucous round of applause and several people approach you to tell you how much they enjoyed what you had to say.
Your talk has people queueing up to sign up for your services and buy your products, and what’s more, the host of the event at which you’re speaking is delighted to pay you appropriately for your time, your wisdom and your contribution to making the event a success.
If this is your heart’s desire, then I’d love to share with you 3 ways that I’ve been paid to speak about spirituality.
1. Put on your own event, speak for free, and offer a paid product/service at the end.
In 2015, I hosted How to receive 3K per month in your spiritual business. I rented a room in a beautiful hotel in Edinburgh and invited people to attend, free of charge. I spoke to the best of my ability and gave high-value content about how I received 3K per month, and then I made an offer for private coaching at the end. The event was a success and I received 10 times what I had invested in running the event.
The key to success here is to create a talk that’s really desirable; polish and practice your speaking; include your very best content; and create an offering that’s super-aligned with the talk.
Practice presenting your offering in an elegant, honest and non-cringey way (this is super-important – if asking for money makes you squirm, the audience will feel it and be repelled. Practice makes perfect here.)
2. Create an amazing CV and get it out there. ASK for the opportunities.
Not many spiritual practitioners have a resume of their skills, experiences and professional achievements. If you don’t – get one. It should look like an actor’s CV, not like your applying for a job in a bank. When you’ve created it and you’re happy with it, make an extensive list of speaking opportunities and get your resume out there to whomever is in charge. If you have a showreel of you speaking, even better. I know it’s scary to put yourself out there, but if you don’t ask, you don’t get.
In 2013 I was given the opportunity to live in San Diego, California for 6 weeks. I created a CV and sent it to all the spiritual centres in the San Diego area. 2 of them accepted my proposal to speak at their centres and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I did a series of talks across a week – everything from dream interpretation to mediumship. Although I couldn’t accept money as I didn’t have a work visa, I was offered payment and received a great deal of follow up clients when I returned to the UK as a result of my talks.
3. Write a book.
I’m working on this one right now. My book #TheMediumInManolos is a guide to mediumship for the Millennial generation – I’m so excited to write it, and even more excited by the opportunity to speak about and demonstrate mediumship.
When you write a great book about your area of expertise, many doors will open for you in terms of speaking opportunities. Add it to your resume and repeat step 2 above.
Those are 3 ways to get paid to speak about spirituality that have worked amazingly well for me. Now, I’d love to hear from you:
