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!
