This week, my guest is serial entrepreneur and author Simone Vincenzi. Simone has helped launch more than 500 profitable businesses all before the age of 30. He is the go-to expert in selling from stage and in this episode, we talk about the differences and indeed the many similarities of speaking to sell and being paid to speak. Two Italians chatting about speaking, this is an episode not to be missed. Simone also shares his “Selling from stage check list” and “15 ways to get speaking gigs” which you can pick up in the show notes.
NB: This was originally recorded as a video and it was an interview in my Speaking Business group on Facebook so there are some references about how we both look. If you want to check out Simone’s amazing hair you can follow the link in the show notes.
