What would happen, God forbid, if you were to lose your voice? To be unable to generate income from your primary vocation? Not a
pleasant thought. A scary thought. Yet real. It happens all
the time. To professionals, like you and me.
How do you protect yourself against such a risk?
For many years, I’ve taught some of the most successful speakers and consultants how to mitigate this risk,
lessen its impact, and even build significant wealth.
Here are two concepts you can use to do the same.
To concentrate all your income generation on a single
source such as speaking, coaching, or consulting can be a
dangerous thing. Yet, you can easily diversify your sources
of income, even when all are connected to your primary
skill. For example, speak, yes, but also think what else you
can do with your talent. You can publish books and coach
via email, sponsor your own seminar, and sell products and
services online. You get the idea.
