Debra Poneman has been a pioneer in the personal development industry for over 25 years. She is the bestselling author of “Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul.” In the 80s she built one of the largest international live seminar companies. I like to call Debra “the coach of the coaches.” Her clients have included Deepak Chopra, Marci Shimoff, Steve Farber, Janet Attwood, Peggy O’Neil and many more.
Throughout our interview Debra shares her words of wisdom and how the speaking industry has changed over the last 25 years. She knows that if an idea comes to you it wants to be manifested by you, but you must act on it. Don’t wait until you think you are ready because you are afraid to fail. If we didn’t care what others think of us, there would be no failure. Failure does not exist, it is an opportunity to learn and grow. As the speaking market has changed, Debra realizes that even though she had one of the most successful live seminars, in today’s world everything is virtual. To be successful in this business you must target a niche market and hold a solid point of view. Listen in as Debra provides key advice for new and veteran speakers.
