As President of the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau, I hear every week from speakers who want to earn more. Getting listed with a bureau is NOT the answer. But I know what is! I work with speakers and clients from around the world. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t get an email or a call from a speaker somewhere in the world who wants to get listed with the bureau so they can start earning thousands speaking. (See below for a few heart-wrenching examples!)
Most people think a successful speaker is one who made the crowd laugh or cry, or who educates and informs their audience. This is not the key to being a successful speaker! Being a successful speaker is when you get PAID to speak! And, I can show anyone how to do this.
Companies and organizations don’t always have a big budget to book speakers. But, once you discover how to become a PAID speaker, the doors will open and you can instantly start earning thousands – EVERY time you speak! This truly is the best kept secret in our industry.
Most speakers are out there waiting for the call to come in from a meeting planner or bureau for a $1K, $5K, or $10K keynote. Or, they work diligently to create that one special keynote that will put them ahead of thousands of other speakers.
(If you’re already a speaker, and you’re brave, try this: Go to YOUTUBE and search your topic followed by the word “speaker”, such as “Sales Speaker.” Watch some of the videos from the thousands of speakers who ALSO speak on your topic. Now, ask yourself, “Why would a meeting planner hire ME … instead of one of these OTHER speakers?!” It’s a crowded field and it’s harder than ever to stand out.)
Before I founded the speakers bureau, I was like most speakers; I believed that the key to earning thousands from speaking was by having that one, incredible keynote that set the world on fire. As I ran the bureau, I discovered that there are some successful speakers, but there are many more speakers who are struggling.
One thing is certain: Bookings for big-paying gigs are becoming farther and fewer between. Even the speakers I know who have been speaking for 20+ years are no longer able to get the great paying gigs like they used to. They earn most of their money from MLMs, side businesses, and information product sales than they do from their speaking careers. The industry is changing. Today, event planners are more likely to offer a pass to a conference instead of a speaking fee. I expect that before long, they will CHARGE speakers for the “privilege” of speaking to their groups!
Then, a few years ago, I discovered how the REALLY successful speakers are earning MILLIONS every year. And, it doesn’t have much to do with their ability or talent as speakers. What they know is HOW to monetize their speaking engagements. They know the secrets of being a PAID speaker.
If you aspire to become a professional PAID speaker, I can show you how. I can assure you that you’ll make more than you ever thought possible, every time you speak. THIS is how you will become a PAID speaker!
I am going to show anyone who wants to become a paid speaker exactly what it takes at the Millionaire Speakers Boot Camp in Las Vegas on Sept. 15, 2012. And this is the first time I’m presenting the MSBC as a ONE DAY program, so I am able to cut the tuition by more than HALF. When this was a 2-day program, the tuition was $1497.00. Now that this is a one-day program, I am able to offer it for just $597.00! And, I offer an UNCONDITIONAL money-back guarantee – so if you’re interested in discovering what it takes to become a PAID speaker, you have nothing to lose. This information will rock your world.
I love sharing this information with speakers and people who want to become speakers. It will completely change the way you approach the speaking business. ANYONE can become a successful speaker and earn thousands of dollars every time they speak.
Today, I heard from a sincere, 66-year old gentleman from Israel who wants to be listed with the bureau. He has vast life experience and wants to help people. It’s hard for me to tell him that many of my clients call the bureau because their meetings are going to be held in Las Vegas and they want speakers from the area – so they can save on T & E (travel & expenses). They don’t have a decent budget to hire a speaker, let alone pay travel expenses for a speaker all the way from Israel!
I also heard from a young woman in Pakistan who hopes I can book her for a speaking engagement so she can support her family. The most frustrating part of my work with the bureau is the fact that I don’t have $10,000 gigs for everyone who wants one. Instead, I work tirelessly with planners who want to find the best, affordable (or free!) speakers who live nearby. Occasionally, I get to work with big groups, but then they usually want to book someone famous – a “Public Speaker” – such as a politician or an astronaut.
I will OPEN YOUR EYES and show you how to become a PAID SPEAKER at the Millionaire Speakers Boot Camp. If you are interested in getting paid to speak, you will love this – and you have nothing to lose.
I love helping people, and the proof is in the heartwarming testimonials I receive. Rachel Magario is a blind kidney transplant survivor whom I met when I was speaking at a NAWMBA event. Rachel hired me to help her speak and get published. She writes, “I believe your presentations and workshops are the best I’ve ever experienced and your coaching sessions are amazing. You always makes sure you give your best, and you go the extra mile to entertain, educate, and fulfill the needs of your clients. Thank you, Robin, for helping me to reach my goals and realize so many of my dreams!”
And, Angelique Daniels, a working mother of two, wrote, “”Robin you have truly been a blessing!! I can’t believe how great you have been as a coach, mentor, and friend. Remember in my first email when I asked: ‘Do you have any programs for struggling moms relentlessly pursuing their dream???’ Well, I never thought it would lead to all this. Sometimes I think about putting my dreams on the shelf and that little voice inside says, ‘NO!!!’ You are my BIG voice on the outside that keeps me pushing forward!!!” Today, Angelique uses the techniques she learned in my Millionaire Speakers Boot Camp to build her business, get paid to speak, and even recruit distributors for her new business.

GET PAID TO SPEAK!
As President of the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau, I constantly hear from motivational speakers who want to get listed with the bureau because they think more bureau listings will translate to MORE PAID SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS. I hate to tell them that getting listed with bureaus is such a SMALL part of becoming a paid speaker, but that is the truth!
What is the SECRET to Earning More from Speaking?
So, how is a speaker supposed to get more gigs so they can earn more money speaking? The answer lies in the information I’m going to share at my Millionaire Speakers Boot Camp, Sat., Sept. 15th, 2012, at the Hampton Inn on St. Rose Parkway at Spencer/Seven Hills Drive.
I was not much different from the speakers who contact me every week looking for more paid gigs … UNTIL I discovered this incredible information! This changed forever the way I approach speaking professionally. The first time I spoke after learning this incredible information, I earned $1695, speaking at a networking mixer for just 20 minutes – for what was a “non-paid” gig! I earned back the tuition fee the very first time I applied the science and psychology of speaking successfully.
Last month, I was hired to speak for one of the largest office equipment manufacturers – a day trip to Southern California. I was also, around the same time, asked if I would speak for free at a local non-profit’s monthly luncheon. I accepted that as well. I proved these techniques work: I earned TWICE AS MUCH at the “non-paid” gig than I did at the PAID speaking engagement! Now, you can, too. Discover how when you attend this incredible one-day intense – and incredibly amazing – seminar.
Discover the difference between being a GREAT speaker and becoming a PAID speaker. I am so sure you are going to LOVE what you learn that I am offering an UNCONDITIONAL Money-Back Guarantee! This is – without a doubt – the most exciting class you will EVER attend.

About “The Keeper of the Keys”
“The Keeper of the Keys” is the first funny personal development movie, sure to “take the ‘Hell’ out of self-help”! It’s entertaining, engaging, and powerful.
As producer of this groundbreaking personal development movie, my goal was to create a movie that was different from all the other films in this genre. In talking to my mentor Stephen Simon, a long-time Hollywood film producer and co-founder of Spiritual Cinema Circle, it became clear that in order to create a movie that was fresh and inspiring, it would have to be critically different. I wanted to make it funny; after all, you can’t empower anyone if they can’t sit through the movie long enough to take in any new information. And – it’s never been done before!
A Funny Self-help Movie? That’s Hilarious!
But how could I accomplish making a movie that would be really funny – yet share messages from some of the most respected leaders in the field of personal development?
The answer came to me as I was emailing Stephen one day. I had actually typed: “Every question you answer gives me ten more questions!” when the answer to this particular dilemma popped into my mind – literally! I could do a twist on “A Christmas Carol.” This way, I could have a fictional character who would fall asleep and during his wakening dream, encounter experts who would share their stories and messages with him. It would be engaging, interesting, and – most of all – funny.
What Enlightened People Have to Share
The character could argue with the experts, as many “unenlightened” people tend to do. This would give the experts the opportunity to state their case, share their experience, and offer advice to the character as to how he could improve his life. His life, of course, would need a LOT of improvement! I fleshed out this idea in that email to Stephen. “What do you think?” I asked. I was elated when he wrote back, “I think this could work; let’s think about it and talk next week.” And “The Keeper of the Keys” was born.
You are in for a treat. The experts who share in the movie came from as far away as the UK, and include JACK CANFIELD, JOHN GRAY, AND MARCI SHIMOFF. Their messages are outstanding. I wouldn’t have any “standard” rhetoric that most motivational speakers give from the platform. I encouraged the experts to share deeply personal stories – stories that had real messages that would empower the viewers. Boy, did they deliver!
If you want to attend the VIP Red Carpet Premiere at the all new PLAZA LAS VEGAS Hotel Casino in LAS VEGAS, Nevada, just click here: TheKeeperoftheKeys You’ll see details, be able to book your room (Just $25 a night!), and buy your tickets to the evening premiere AND the afternoon luncheon at the Palm with Jack Canfield and Marci Shimoff.
Stay tuned for more updates. The Key movie website will be up any day now. I look forward to seeing you at the premiere. ~ Robin
An Idea Takes Hold: The Keeper of the Keys movie is Born
If you’ve been following my blog posts on the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau site, then you will know why I’ve been neglectful of my RobinJay.com blog … I’ve been busy producing a personal development movie this year- “The Keeper of the Keys” – starring Jack Canfield, Dr. John Gray, PhD, and Marci Shimoff. These experts are leaders in the field of personal development and it has been thrilling to get to work with them on the movie set. Production finally wrapped last week, and now it’s up to my Director/Editor, Scott Cervine, to work his movie magic.
“PAPER Books are SO ‘Yesterday’… Media is DIGITAL Now!
So – what’s up with the movie? No offense to great authors everywhere, but books are “so yesterday!” Okay, I’m just being flip … let me revise that: “PAPER books are So Yesterday!” Digital readers have taken over the world; iPads, Kindles, Nooks, and various tablets are the RAGE today! And this trend is only going to get bigger. And, today, you can watch a MOVIE on your smart phone (or most of the above tablets.)
I Wanted to EMPOWER More People by Producing an Engaging, Funny Movie That Would Really Help Them to Understand the Universal Laws … or Keys
I became a non-fiction writer because I wanted to help people. It’s easy to see that I will be able to help even MORE people with an engaging, digital format – a MOVIE! Imagine – in just 70 – 75 minutes, you can reach an entire ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE – with a message of empowerment, wrapped up in a package that is entertaining, compelling, and even funny! That is EXACTLY what I am doing this year.
I had the idea to do this when I saw a friend’s movie. I said, “I would LOVE to make a movie, too!” And he said “You could…!” And then he told me how he did it. But, as with everything I do, I wanted to take the project to an even higher level. I asked two of my most popular coauthors, Jack Canfield & Marci Shimoff, if they would agree to appear in it. They said they would. Victory!
Then, I recruited about a dozen other experts from around the world who are amazing, though their names are not as well known as Jack’s or Marci’s. Then, right before filming her segment, Marci asked if we’d like to have John Gray in the movie. OF COURSE we would! And so far, everything has worked out beautifully!
Surround Yourself with the Best of the Best
I believed I could produce a movie … and I was even fairly certain I could appear in the movie. (After all, speaking to groups of 500 people takes a certain degree of show biz savoir-faire! ) BUT, I was wise enough to know I needed to hire a director. I invited Scott Cervine, whose production company is Movies From the Heart, to direct. He has produced some truly outstanding personal development movies. Scott brought in an incredible crew, including cinematographer David A. Fisher. Now, with filming wrapped, Scott is busy editing the movie.
I am currently focused on putting together a smashing, over-the-top VIP RED CARPET PREMIERE, on December 8th, at the Brenden Theatres at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This premiere is going to be the most incredible event of the year. After all, have you been having enough FUN this year? Seating is limited. A portion of the proceeds will be going to Volunteers in Medicine, Southern Nevada. More details to come soon.
For information or to reserve your seats for the premiere, email me at Robin@RobinJay.com. I look forward to sharing with you the most engaging personal development movie EVER!
I’m fortunate to work in the field of personal development because I can get away with spreading love, joy, and positive messages without raising too many eyebrows. Even if others don’t EXPECT me to be a bit “over the top” … they certainly aren’t surprised when they get to experience a little unexpected “love” or appreciation.
By sharing the love, I simply mean spreading positive energy – whether that means signing an email with “Love, Robin” or “I love how you’re wearing your hair,” or “I love when we get to meet for lunch!”
Is it appropriate to sign an email, “Much love”? Definitely, if you are writing to friends. But what about when you are writing to a business associate, client, or coworker? What is too much? Can you share the joy and let people know just how much you care about them – even if your relationship is relatively new? And, if you’re dealing with someone you DON’T like as much, can sharing some love help to soften their edges?
I think the answer lies in your own comfort zone. Ask yourself how YOU would feel if someone signed an email to you the same way YOU want to sign YOUR emails. In dealing with the EXPERTS who are going to appear in the movie I’m producing, “The Keeper of the Keys,” I often sign my emails with “Much love” or “Sending Love Your Way.”
My friend Julie Neil used to sign all her e-mails (from work) “Hugs, Julie”. Guess what? Whenever I saw her, I got a hug. I knew when she signed her e-mails “Hugs” – she meant it! I ran into her recently at Trader Joe’s and – you guessed it – I got a great hug. Love you, Julie. And I loved all those sweet hugs – even when we were negotiating dollars and advertising schedules. Julie was a master at spreading and sharing the LOVE!
I admit I am MUCH MORE reserved with new, conservative relationships. But it usually doesn’t take long before I’m sharing and caring. Once I feel comfortable, and I believe you will appreciate it, I’ll send some love your way. As Jackie DeShannon sang, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.”
Even if you have to be a bit more formal or reserved, you can still share love and joy as you go about your day. Offer compliments instead of criticisms. Offer a helping hand instead of complaining. Smile. Give hugs or hearty handshakes. And be sure to tell people just how much you appreciate them. You never know how long they will be here.
NOTE: I lost a friend yesterday – Randy Fleitz. His death from a heart attack was unexpected; he ran on the treadmill regularly and stayed in shape. We golfed together a few times – in charity tournaments and for business. He was hilarious. I can picture him on the links and can remember most of his funny comments.
Randy was my client, first at the Golden Nugget, then later at the Mirage. By the time we’d done a promotional ad campaign, we were friends. A round of golf cemented that. After I retired from selling advertising, I would see him occasionally around town.
Randy was younger than I. He had a family. I always knew him to be a VERY hard-working professional. And he was KIND – a fairly RARE quality among high-pressured casino executives. I remember about 15 years ago (or was it more like 18?), my step-brother James was visiting from Ohio. We sat at CPK/Mirage having lunch. Randy happened to come by. After introducing him to James, we spoke for a bit and then he went about his business.
James ate his lunch while he watched Agassi play tennis. He was mesmerized by the wide assortment of sporting events that filled the monitors in the sports book a few feet away. James said, “There is NOTHING like this in Cleveland!” (a line I often shared with my clients; we needed to remember how our fabulous strip is seen in the eyes of our visitors!) But that paled in comparison to how impressed he was when we discovered our lunch had been comped. James thought his big sister was really a big cheese, since I was friends with a boss at the Mirage. Randy, I’ll never forget that kindness.
I hope you have a tee time with your dad this week, and I hope you play well. You will be dearly missed by many here. Much love to you Randy, much love.
