Not too long ago, a speaker bureau told me that they wanted me for an event. Ok cool. But after I get all the information for the event, and I’m ready to go, they say,

“Oh, we’re going to pay you the full fee after the event. We just need to make sure you show up.”


Has anyone ever wanted to pay you after you speak on stage? What do you do if that happens?

Do you get mad, say ‘ok,’ and then secretly haunt their nightmares?

If this hasn’t happened to you, it will (especially if you’re dealing with speaker bureaus). So what do you do about it? How do you handle it without coming across like Freddy Krueger?

The answer is very simple…

(I also talk about how I handle the money for an event)
