Oh boy. The title of this article reeks of a “get rich quick” ploy, doesn’t it? Well, I have good news. Getting rich isn’t even on the table here. Instead, it’s about a small income that is steady, consistent, and reliable – not about massive windfalls or wealth.
I repeat. SMALL income.
The advice and links you’re about to get are aimed specifically at someone in the following situation:
Maybe you need consistent income because you want to quit your job. Maybe it’s because your job quit you. Maybe you want the consistent income quickly so that you can “buy” the time to create that significant income so...
It's tempting to say that anyone can become a motivational speaker at any age.
Heck, that's what a motivational speaker would say, right?
"Go for it!" "You can do it!" "You're never too old and never too young to get started!!!"
Look, I firmly believe that age is not a factor.
Until it is.
Sure, anyone can become a motivational speaker at any age, but let's be real for a second. You can't exactly speak on any topic at any age.
* Can you imagine listening to an seventeen-year-old talk about How to Age Gracefully?

That's pretty much where the age restrictions end.
Would you want to hear a seventy-five-year-old talk about What's Trending in Technology? Your first reaction might be, "Nope. Too old. What could he possibly know about current trends?" But what if this guy was the CEO of the most innovative tech...
NOTE: Don't be fooled by this post. It's a story, sure. But the lessons here are among the most valuable I've ever shared. By the end, you'll know exactly what you need to do.
This entire web site is devoted to answering the question at the top of this page. In this first post, I'll tell you how I did it.
I started as a magician.
Halfway into my first year of college, and to the delight of my parents, I dropped out to pursue my dream of turning a childhood hobby into an adulthood career.
To make a long story short, after a few false starts, I did it. I was living my dream and performing 300-350 magic shows a year all over the country.
If that sounds like a lot, that's because it is.
Novelty entertainers are not rewarded (i.e. paid) the way they ought to be. With all the negativity and fearmongering in the news and in the media, you’d think that a little laughter and wonderment would have a higher value in the marketplace.
It’s a shame, really.
