Launch Your Speaking Business

Step by Step Blueprint To Launching Your Speaking Business

Follow the 3-step blueprint 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® helping speakers get on more stages and build a business of their dreams since 2002. I have been teaching this content for 2 decades and I’m thrilled to help you launch your speaking business in my 3-Step blueprint. 

Why I call it a LAB

Why I called it LAB instead of course, program, or training is because this is a 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. 

So, with that being said if you're all in for a little bit of work, actually a lot of work this LAB probably is for you.

If you're hesitant and don't think you want to work to get the results you seek, this isn't the LAB for you.

The Launch Your Speaking Business LAB

This LAB teaches you all the things you need to successfully start a speaking business. This LAB is perfect if you are ready to get started, want to learn the steps from A to C to avoid overwhelm, and you need some hand-holding to make it happen.
“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.”

“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.”

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

Wendi McNeill

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

The LYSB LAB is for new speakers who want to launch, grow, and scale a successful, sustainable, self-supporting, speaking business.  

You can have access to all the speaking opportunities in the world but without positioning yourself or having a strong speaking platform to stand on and shout …  

“Yes! I’m the speaker you seek” it will be very difficult to get booked and request the fees you deserve.  

Get started today. Don't be overwhelmed by all that you need to do.
