Mike Wolf on Passive Income to Support Your Speaking

Mike Wolf on Passive Income to Support Your Speaking

July 24, 2019

Ep #13 - Mike Wolf joins me on the show this week to discuss his journey and evolution as a speaker along with key strategies for building real passive income in your life and business. Mike is a self-made freedom and lifestyle entrepreneur, a multimillionaire investor, and an international speaker. He has been investing in real estate for almost 30 years and he specializes in helping people to realize their ultimate freedom goals through creating legitimate streams of passive income.

Mike has been featured in The Globe and Mail, Yahoo Finance, various print publications, radio stations, and major television networks like NBC, CBS and ABC News. Over the course of his career, he has sold nearly 2,000 homes with over 800 just in Atlanta. His turn-key solutions have allowed new investors to become self-made millionaires and he has developed a reputation as the leading authority for helping non-US citizens to invest in the hottest markets of the United States.

Mike Wolf somewhat stumbled onto his speaking career after creating a massive demand from his clients and audience to hear him speak. Due to the investment success he was helping his clients achieve, people wanted to hear Mike speak and learn these strategies for themselves. 

While Mike started speaking on other people's stages, he has gone on to host his own events where he will sell tickets for as much as $8,000 while still managing to fill the room.

In our interview, you will hear about Mike's evolution as a speaker along with key pieces of wisdom he has learned on the journey. Mike is an amazing resource to learn from and I know you will love this interview.

Steve Love on Speaking in Real Estate and on Cruises

July 10, 2019

Ep # 12 - My guest today is Steve Love, an author, speaker, and real estate broker that has been in the industry since 1978. Steve works alongside his wife Robyn Love who has been a real estate agent since 1994. Both worked for many years as real estate appraisers and started real estate investing full time in the 1990’s. Due to their success in the real estate investing arena, they were chosen to run the Los Angeles Chapter of Investor Resource Center of America in 1994. In 2002, they started running the prosperity through real estate chapter.

Steve currently runs the Los Angeles chapter for National REIA (Real Estate Investors Association) and says, "literally just call them up! I'm looking for speakers with good track records." Check out nationalreia.org to learn more and search for your local chapter.

In today's interview, we discuss how to break into local talks like Rotary Clubs and Elks Lodges. Steve also shares a huge secret to ENSURE you get booked on the spot! At these speaking gigs, sometimes you can sell books, enroll new clients, and even have a raffle.

Steve discusses how he was booked to speak several times for the Royal Carribean Cruise Lines. He set himself up for this gig because of a desire to go on more cruises. Steve ended up speaking on as many as 5 cruises a year at one point and each time he was able to bring a family member FOR FREE! He says all you need to do is have a great talk with an interesting topic.

We even get into how to get over phone fear or "call reluctance" and call the people who actually book speakers. If you want to learn Steve's strategies and tips for booking speaking gigs, you will love this interview!
