1. Defeat Your Stage Fright

The first step to becoming a professional motivational speaker in Nigeria is to defeat your fear of the stage. Many individuals are scared of the stage and the ability to address the crowd. This fear is absolutely natural but it can be controlled gradually till it is totally defeated.

If you are an extrovert, it will be easy to overcome your stage fright. This is because extroverts are usually outgoing and they care less about people’s negative comments and feedback. But if you are an introvert it is going to take time before you defeat your fear of the stage.

It is important you overcome stage fright as a motivational speaker because the stage is your shop. It is where you make money. If you avoid it, your carrier will not even start to the extent of you making money from it. Here are some things you can do to defeat stage fright as an upcoming motivational speaker. 

A. Prepare for your Presentations

It is very important you prepare for the topic you are given or the topic of choice. When you are sure and you understand what you want to talk about you have more confidence in yourself that you will perform well. To prepare you need to study the topic and how you want to perform.

B. Dress well but do not Overdo it

To promote your skill on online you can create social media accounts, especially YouTube and Instagram, and share some of your public speaking there. As time goes by your followers will increase and you will start getting recognition for your skill.

5. How Much to Charge for Speaking

Money should not be the first priority if you really want to make money from motivational speaking in the long run. The best time to start charging for your skill is when organizations start asking you how much you will charge them for a particular speaking engagement.

When this period comes you should charge within #50,000 – #200,000 per appearance. You can also use your discretion when it comes to non-profit organizations.
