Prevailing wisdom says you cannot be a prophet in your hometown. In this case, the hometown is Disney and Disney Institute (DI).
As a DI speaker, you are paid a couple hundred bucks a day. Everything else goes to the Organization. It’s the way it works. No harm, no foul. It’s clear and if you don’t like it, you can leave.
But if you leave, then what?
Real life in real time really truly comes to life.
Depends on the person’s will to succeed and the value they bring.
Yesterday’s Fortune 150 client paid the going rate for a world-class (Disney) Keynote speech. If you’re not familiar, it starts at $16k and goes up from there. Call anyone who can offer such compelling content and request a quote for a (Disney) Keynote Speaker.
When you become the Organization, you skyrocket past a couple hundred.
It takes guts to ask for such a fee.
It takes a prophet to earn that fee.
The world has always become a better place by having courageous people do things that matter, in spite of their fear and doubt.
Yes, i’m talking to you. If you hate cubicle nation for any reason (and there’s a diverse list of reasons), get busy working on becoming the Organization. Become an entrepreneur.
It took over six years to earn my first dime, but it was a big dime.
i’m here to feed (for free) your desire to overcome those million obstacles and excuses you keep staring at.
