Many of you know about the Sacramento Speaker and Entrepreneur Network Meetup that I hold monthly here in the Sacramento area. This group is open to those who are new or experienced speakers who meet to network with each other, collaborate, share resources and who want to learn more about speaking in their business.

Attendees receive training each month on topics that relate to the business of speaking and we work on ways to find more speaking opportunities and to build our businesses. There’s a lot of energy generated at these meetings as well as sharing ideas! It’s a great group to network with.

In the past, we have met for Live Events monthly, but I chose to hold the meeting in December as a Virtual Meetup to give more people, especially those who are not in the Sacramento area, an opportunity to attend.

Did you know that speaking is the #1 way you can get clients when you have your own business? The Sacramento Speaker and Entrepreneur Network is a great place to get some valuable Speaker Training and tips, similar to the training I provided in this Virtual Meeting, to help you get booked as a Speaker. .

Click the video below to hear the webinar of the Sacramento Speaker and Entrepreneur Network December Meetup.!


Starting January 2018, my goal is to hold a live event once per month as well as a webinar once per month for this Meetup Group. This will give more people an opportunity to join and be active in this Group if they are unable to attend regular meetings in Sacramento. It will also give more speaking opportunities to more people.

Going forward in the New Year, we will continue to need speakers for the Live Events each month in Sacramento. We will also need speakers for the virtual Meetups. So here’s your opportunity to perfect your speaking skills and to share your message with more people.

To sign up to be a speaker at one of our upcoming events, either at a Live Event or a Virtual Event, please go to SacSpeakerSubmission on my website and complete the form.

PPS:  Ready to find out what’s really stopping you from attaining a much more profitable business? Then please go schedule a call with me, it’s urgent that you figure this out sooner than later. Go sign up at now.

If you are an entrepreneur who is really trying to ramp up your business and especially if you are in the first 5 years of your business, this is my Special Invitation for you to join us at my November LIVE Event because it will be perfect for YOU!

I talk to many entrepreneurs and they tell me they listen to podcasts, sign up for webinars, they watch You Tube videos, and opt in to several people’s email lists to get GREAT INFORMATION and to learn more about how to create a profitable business.

Does this sound like you?

Have you signed up to dozens of email lists and are you listening to a variety of several people’s podcasts, videos, webinars, etc?

Guess What? That’s a lot of learning!

Know What? Many people who do this find they are spending their time learning but NOTHING IS GETTING DONE! They are not getting further in their business because they are not TAKING the TIME to implement all they’ve learned into their business so they can have a smooth running, consistent money making business.

Inconsistency is a problem that many business owners deal with. And here’s the rub. If you are following several mentors and trying to implement several different philosophies or strategies, you’ll be getting inconsistent or conflicting information.

I’ve been working in marketing and sales for over 15 years now and in my opinion, you need to pick only ONE mentor! Sure, it’s fine to go to a few other events here and there, but I’m recommending you shut off all of the different tele-classes, unsubscribe to some of those lists or put them in a separate folder so you don’t get sidetracked by that BRIGHT SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME.

What you need is help and direction with the order of importance for you and your business. You need someone who can look at the BIG PICTURE of all the things you are currently doing in your business as well as the things you want to be doing several years from now. Perhaps you need to start taking BABY STEPS toward making your business more profitable and it could be that you need to take GIANT LEAPS.

Click the Video below to listen to my “Special Invitation For You…” to learn more about why picking one mentor is more beneficial to you and your business.


Are you Ready to work with someone who can see the BIG PICTURE of your business, where it is now and guide you what to do to make it grow and be more profitable? This is my PASSION! AND you will get the type of direction I’ve shared with you in these video tips whether you work with me one on one, or if you are in my LIVE BIG MASTERMIND or if you come to one of my LIVE EVENTS!

You can invest 3 days and get the direction and focus to get super clear on what you are doing and see the options of whatever is possible. GROW through your comfort zone to stretch yourself to DO MORE, BE MORE, REACH MORE PEOPLE and make a lot MORE MONEY doing WHAT YOU LOVE!

If this has resonated with you today, I want you to do these 3 things:

    1. Stop listening to so many different people. Get rid of too much information overload because what you really need is a Focused Path of Action.
    2. If you want to work with me or to find out how I can help you, come to a call with me. It’s not a hard sales call, seriously! You’re going to get some great ideas (FREE) and we can both see if working together might be a good fit! Get your free complimentary business strategy session by clicking here:
    3. Come to my LIVE EVENT – – November 3rd, 4th, & 5th in Sacramento. I encourage you to register for one of my live events sooner than later because if you are like many entrepreneurs, you need to make more money NOW!

If you are unable to attend my November Live Event but are interested in a future event, you can get information and schedule of my future events at

But if you are Ready to Jumpstart Your Business, I hope to see you sooner than later!

Talk to You Again Soon!

Speaker Media Kit vs a Speaker Sheet

speaker sheets - alicia whiteGuest blog post provided by Alicia White with

There is a big difference between speaker sheets and speaker media kits. While both contain valuable information about the public speaker, they vastly differ in purpose.

A Speaker Sheet or Speaker One Sheet delivers information about a person’s speaking abilities and the value delivered to the audience in an effort to get booked for speaking engagements.

Meeting planners and event organizers use them to determine who will speak at their events. Speaker bureaus and agencies use speaker sheets to promote clients.

The amount of information on a speaker sheet varies from speaker to speaker. Here are the essential components:

  • Biography
  • Topic Titles and Description
  • Testimonials
  • Contact Information
  • Headshot

A digital speaker sheet file (such as a PDF) is absolutely necessary. It can be sent through email or uploaded onto a website for immediate download. A printed speaker sheet is very useful and is typically one or two pages. There are pros and cons to both formats.

A Speaker Media Kit or Speaker Press Kit delivers information about a person’s message or story in an effort to get publicity via TV, radio, newspaper, magazines, etc.

Media outlets, news desk managers, journalists, and publicists look for interesting stories to feature all of the time.

Unlike the speaker sheet, the information is geared to gaining publicity and have these components:

  • Introduction
  • Biography
  • Contact Information
  • Books/Articles Published
  • Suggested Questions for Interviewing
  • Past Publicity
  • Pictures
  • Speaker Sheet

A digital speaker media kit is a must have, especially if video and audio are available. It can be several pages saved as a PDF file and sent through email or uploaded onto a website for immediate download. For media campaigns, a media kit can be printed and presented as a collated stack of papers, a large three-panel brochure, or tiered multiple pages arranged in a custom-made folder.

To summarize: a Speaker Sheet is perfect for getting speaking engagements while a Speaker Media Kit is ideal for gaining publicity. Having a digital file is a necessity. For best results, professional printing should be considered.

Now you can determine which tool best suits your needs!
