All In Podcast

SUMMARY:

Let’s face it, finding speaking gigs and submitting your information to them is a time

consuming process. If you are new to the speaking industry, you may not even know

where to start. If you are an experienced speaker, you may be struggling with how to get booked in today’s market. That’s where Kerry Heaps steps in. By launching a company designed to create success for speakers as well as creating more successful events, Kerry has found her niche.

Her company, BookSpeakRepeat works with speakers two ways.  They’ve created a DIY self-paced program called Speaker in a Box and for those just starting out who have always dreamed of becoming a speaker, Speaker Academy. Book.Speak.Repeat. was created for Speakers who want help, who are willing to do the work and understand this is a process that takes time.

Kerry shares how her small town upbringing, modeling experience at a young age, and years working in a corporate atmosphere laid the perfect groundwork for her to start a business of her own. Her “all in” moment came when a micromanaging boss helped her to realize she sought the freedom that comes with going out on your own. It may not always be stable and steady but with patience and perseverance she has found the stamina to stay the course and find success and happiness with an entrepreneurial life. Kerry’s approachable and uplifting personality makes it easy to see why so many have found success following her methods.
