    Key Quotes:

    "A Ted Talk in some ways is just like any other piece of content. You got to use it. You got to put it out there in other ways." - Evolve Benton

     

    "It's the wrong question to ask about what is the kind of idea that will get selected? Because the kind of idea that will get selected is the one that's authentic to you and the message that you want to put out there and the idea that you want to change the world." - Evolve Benton

    “The way that we talk about ourselves, the way we talk about our money, the way that we talk about our future is a scale. It is a manifestation of what will come to our lives.”  - Evolve Benton   Happy Black History month! I’m Evolve Benton and today, I go over the origins of the Speaking 4 Profit Academy and why folks may not be charging enough for their voices. A lot of it has to do with the way we regard ourselves - Do you see yourself as capable of being financially free? Do you talk about yourself in an empowering way? Get into momentum by speaking for prophecy and manifesting abundance in your life.     [00:01 - 03:17] Why Your Talent Fee May Not Be Enough The start of Speaking 4 Profit Academy It started during COVID-19 - a pandemic baby.When opportunities became less, the academy becomes an avenue for folks to secure the bag. Why you may not be asking enough A $500 talent fee may save a company $40,000!See yourself as someone who can be profitable from your intellectual property.   [03:18 - 12:10] Cultivating the Wealth Mindset to Call Abundance The significance of support in business ventures Starting a business allows one to serve the world.Through your voice, it is possible to achieve financial freedom. How to build wealth sustainably You cannot rely on just one stream of income.Invest the money and work for a shorter amount of time. Using your voice to call in wealth Be wary of the way you talk about yourself and your life!Being abundant is not built on capitalism, but being able to serve the world.   [12:11 - 13:45] Final Thoughts   Share your story with the world!Connect with me – leave a review and comment (links below)   Key Quotes:   “Being able to create an incubator like Speaking for Profit University, where diverse leaders like yourself, whoever's watching this…are able to build out businesses, through their voice, through their story, through their knowledge, that gives them financial freedom, right? And that financial freedom gives us an opportunity to be able to live longer lives full of joy and happiness.” - Evolve Benton   “Whatever you are an expert at, you can teach the world about that and make some money while you do it.
