Launch Your Speaking Business

A Step By Step Roadmap To Launching Your Speaking Business

Follow My 4 week roadmap and I will have you on your way to getting booked speaking gigs and building a business of your dreams!!

Your Teacher

My name is Wendi McNeill, Founder of Charli Jane Speakers.® I help speakers get on more stages and build a business of their dreams since 2002. I’m thrilled to help you launch your speaking business. 

Why I call it a LAB

Why I called it LAB instead of course, program, or training is because this is as hands on as if you were in a lab. You have to do the work to get the results. I can show you how to get there and how to do it but you have to do the work. 

Before I tell you all about the Launch Your Speaking Business Lab, let’s talk about who this is really for…

> You have great ideas but don’t know the “how” of starting a speaking business. The nuts & bolts.

> Your current speaking business has become stagnant

> You’re coming out of your corporate job and want to start a speaking business 

> You are disorganized and not sure how to dig yourself out 

> You want to position yourself as an expert in your market but don’t know how

> You need support from Wendi and other speakers who “Get You” and your vision

By the end of this program you will have

“Wendi can be counted on for precision, professionalism, and being on point. When I started working with Wendi I felt like I was caught in a maze, filled with overwhelm, and I simply wasn’t sure which actions to take first in regards to growing my business as a speaker. She gave me an easy plan to build my platform, is priceless with her help on my web copy, and did I mention she is enjoyable to work with too? Thanks, Wendi. I look forward to working with you for a long time.”

When it comes to starting a speaking business, do you have any of these questions? 


  • What are the nuts & bolts to start? 
  • What are the basics I need to start submitting proposals?
  • How do I find my niche and audience?
  • How to create a signature title that sells?
  • How to create a signature talk outline
  • What topic should I talk about?
  • What to create and how to create it?
  • How to create the foundational marketing pieces
  • How to avoid burn-out while burning the candle at both ends?  

If so, then exhale, because you are in the right place, at the right time.

“A person can get very isolated trying to figure out things for themselves in this business. Wendi helps me focus on what’s most important. It is so rare to find any service provider these days who provides as much personal attention and professional TLC as Wendi does and I always know she has my best interests at heart.” 

Kathleen A. Paris Ph.D. – Consultant, Distinguished, Emeritu – Office of Improvement – UW-Madison

“Under your coaching, I felt very focused. When I came to you I was going in a hundred different directions. With each small step taken I have gained confidence to go further. When I get excited about a step taken you get excited as well and that lets me know I’m headed in the right direction.” -Sandra Garth, Speaker, Trainer and Coach

Who is the Launch Your Speaking Business LAB NOT for?

  • You already have an established strong speaking business with a solid, strong pipeline and are majorly profitable 
  • You have a fully booked schedule  
  • You are not teachable 
  • You don’t like being held accountable to your goals 
  • You know everything already -:) 
Wendi McNeill

When you do the work and stay committed results can be extraordinary!

The LYSB LAB is for new speakers who want to learn the foundational steps in launching a successful speaking business.

If you start submitting speaker proposals without first laying down the foundational pieces, you will find yourself circling back to the beginning, causing frustration.

In the two decades I have been working with speakers, I have seen many who want to rush in before laying a firm business and online presence foundation and this leads to overwhelm, wasted time and missed opportunities. 

You want to start a business only once. You want to do it right the first time and have a robust speaking platform to stand on and shout, “Yes! I’m the speaker you are seeking.”
