Tracking your revenue is essential to all businesses. Knowing what next month looks like with your sales will guide you to more productivity. The pipeline will give you a view of the opportunities that you are working. You can customize these to fit your revenue streams and your tracking. This is a big part of my SALES strategy and it works for me (and my clients).

Where to Find Speaking Engagements:
In the beginning, you likely just want to find stages to explore your message. You can’t test it in front of a mirror. You have to have live people. Ideally, the people are interested in your topic. The best speech to the wrong audience is still a BAD speech. This will give you some ideas to find your first stages. This is not about being a professional speaker — it is about how you build your business by sharing your message with a live audience.
