I’m Sheila Wray Gregoire.
I didn’t always. I started off writing articles, and eventually books. But I’ve always loved making people laugh, and I love communicating God’s truth.
But when I started speaking it was tough. I didn’t have a mentor, and I didn’t have any clue where to find speaking engagements, how much to charge, how to write a good talk, how to market myself, and more.
Now I speak 4-8 times a month to audiences from 50-1000. And I love it!
But there aren’t enough of me. And there aren’t enough other really good speakers, either. There need to be, because our churches, and our culture, need to hear good, biblical messages that can help transform their lives, families, and communities.
So I hope this blog can become a place where I can share what I’ve learned, and where you can add some of your own ideas and comments. Let’s make this a community, where we can trade knowledge, grow from each other, and inspire each other!
In the next few days I’ll have posts up on how to get started, how to figure out how much to charge, great places to launch your speaking ministry, and more! So bookmark me now and visit back often, or subscribe via RSS! I’m going to provide some great tips that I wish people had shared with me way back when. And you can get them here, for free!
Thanks for joining me!
