The Program:

Do you have as much book, audio, video and other product income as you want? If not, are you wondering why what you’re doing isn’t working? Or perhaps you’re just stumped at where to start? You know you could make multiples of your fee every time you speak, or sell your products online, but you’ve tried and what you’ve done hasn’t worked.

What could you learn from someone who quit his day job and survived on product sales alone? Currently 70% of Darren’s income is derived from product sales, and he does not sound like an infomercial while on stage.

You will learn:

  • how to develop a “product mindset”
  • how you can start earning product income by next week, even if you don’t have any products today
  • how much a speaker can expect to earn with product
  • how to choose what products to create
  • how to track your sales by speech and audience so you can hone your short "pitch" and predict your sales
  • how to price your product
  • how to sell from the platform without sounding like an infomercial

More about our guest expert:

In 2001, Darren LaCroix, the World Champion of Public Speaking, outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to win that title. Since that victory, Darren has traveled the world demystifying the process of creating a powerful speech. He has roused audiences in faraway places like Oman, Malaysia, and Taiwan with his inspirational journey from first-rate chump to first-class champ, proving anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.

His successful book Laugh & Get Rich: How to Profit from Humor in Any Business (6th printing), contains interviews with corporate executives who share his philosophy. Now translated into three languages, it is a mainstay on business bookshelves.

As co-founder of The Humor Institute and a co-creator of The Humor Boot CampTM, Darren directs seminars that help presenters wisely use the power of humor to “lighten up” their presentations. His program “Get Paid to Speak by Next Week”TM has helped many speakers receive their very first checks.

An award-winning producer, his film “Living and Laughing with Cancer: A Comedian’s Journey” was honored at the Worldfest Houston Film Festival for its groundbreaking insights into humor and healing. This inspirational documentary about his best friend’s battle with cancer brings humor and hope to those touched by life-threatening conditions.

Darren’s unique brand of humor is featured in numerous corporate training videos. His extensive list of clients include Fidelity Investments, Sheraton Hotels, IBM, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Dunkin’ Donuts, Motorola, EMC2 Corporation, CVS, and ERA Key Realty Services.
