How I Became a PAID Public Speaker - Questions Answered

May 12, 2023


Public speaking is an art that not everyone can master, especially when it comes to getting paid for it. As a public speaker who's now getting paid for their craft, I've had my fair share of experiences and challenges along the way. In this blog post, I'm going to share how I became a paid public speaker, answer some of your most burning questions about public speaking, and introduce you to my public speaking training course, ACE Your Public Speaking, which will help you to master the art of speaking in front of a crowd.

1. What my first emcee experience was like and how I managed the fear and anxiety that came with it.

When I first started out as a public speaker, I wasn't very confident. My first emcee experience was a disaster; I remember barely making it through the event without stuttering or saying the wrong thing. It was a significant challenge to manage my fear and anxieties at that time, but I knew that I had to keep pushing. I started practicing in front of the mirror and recording myself to improve my performance. I also took note of my mistakes and worked on them, and gradually, my confidence grew.

2. Do I still get nervous emceeing, and how do I control my nerves?

Even after all these years, I still get nervous when I'm emceeing. The trick, I've learned, is to channel that nervous energy positively. Before going on stage, I take a deep breath and tell myself that I can do it. I also rehearse my lines and familiarize myself with the audience. Doing so helps me reduce anxiety, and I can focus on delivering an outstanding performance.

3. One of the worst experiences I had on live TV.

As public speakers, we're bound to experience one or two embarrassing moments in our careers. My most terrible experience was being caught off guard on live TV. At that moment, I wasn't sure what to do, but I realized that the show must go. I didn't try to make excuses or come up with a story, but instead, I tried to maintain my composure and move on gracefully. I learned that sometimes the audience is more forgiving than we think.


In conclusion, public speaking is an art that requires passion, preparation, consistency, and most importantly, practice. My journey to becoming a paid public speaker was a challenging one, but it has also been a rewarding one. In my public speaking training course, ACE Your Public Speaking, you will learn how to master the art of speaking in front of a crowd and overcome your fear and anxiety, just like I did.
