After years of being a professional speaker and hosting training conferences for people who want to become speakers, the #1 question I'm asked is:  

    •    How do I land my first paid speaking engagement?

People aren’t asking me how to book $5,000 or $10,000 engagements (at least, not yet). All they want to know is how to book their first $500 or $750 speech.

That's why I created a brand new video masterclass entitled: "YOUR FIRST PAID SPEECH: How to Land Your First $750 Speaking Engagement Without Having a Huge Platform or Being a Best-Selling Author.” 

Here's what you get in this Online Course and Community:

  • Video recordings of all 6 one-hour modules (see descriptions of each module below)
  • PDF handouts for each module
  • Audio recordings of each module, so you can listen on-the-go
  • Templates of forms and tools I use in my speaking business

  • Access to a Private Facebook Group for ongoing growth and learning


The best part... this online masterclass course and community is ONLY $399.

About the instructor

Professional Speaker and Business Leader

Kent Julian

I’m a family man, a professional speaker, a successful lifestyle entrepreneur and a proud bald guy, but this wasn’t always the case. I started out as an at-risk kid with SAT scores so low I had to take Developmental Studies just to get into college — on probation. From these humble beginnings, I went on to lead a national youth organization that helped teenagers just like me. After 20 years in non-profit work, I did something crazy…I launched a lifestyle business called Live It Forward which helps individuals and companies move from DREAM to DO in their performance, productivity and profits. As a professional speaker, consultant, and writer, you can find my work online in cool places like Entrepreneur.com, Success.com, the Huffington Post and more. I also work with people who want to become speakers in both their presentations skills and business strategies.Speaking is the #1 part of my business.  I present in 40-50 venues to 40,000-50,000 high achievers each year. 

What People are Saying

It works! I have been using the exact plan Kent taught me for booking paid speaking events. It’s definitely paying dividends. I have recently booked my first 3 paid speaking engagements using his methods. A big thank you Kent!  

— Tom Henricksen


I’m so excited. I have 4 PAID engagements coming up in the next 3 months all because I really know my message, I know who needs my message and I know how to find the people who book speakers for my message. THANK YOU Kent Julian!”   

— Jill Davis


“Kent… you have the gift of being able to encourage and sometimes give a gentle nudge in the direction of a successful speaking career. It’s so exciting to start booking speaking events. I have booked 6 paid speaking engagements so far! Yeah!!”

— Brenda Nevitt



"When I first went through Kent Julian's speaker course, I was just a girl with a dream clouded by fear and doubt. Kent provided me with a clear blueprint, action steps, and tangible goals to help me make my dream a reality. Less than 3 months later I was paid to speak. A few months later I booked my first $750 paid speaking engagement and have two more right behind it. Thank you, Kent!"
