Motivational Speakers

OK, so you've just  reached your weight loss goals and made it through a fad diet, commercial or medical weight loss program or weight loss center, and are eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Congratulations! You've been through diet plans like South Beach, Atkins and low-carb diets. But, you're STILL not happy with how you FEEL--the balance (or lack of it) in your life.

Relax, BestDietForMe.com analysts and Marketdata have it covered. We published a major market study about the self-improvement market in February 2004 ("the Market for Self-Improvement Products & Services"). In this study, we have a chapter covering the leading self-growth or self-improvement motivational speakers or "gurus". Below is useful information to help you understand how they operate, what they charge, how they make their programs and products available to the public, and a profile of probably THE top name in the business (Anthony Robbins). Of course, there are many more, such as Deepak Chopra, Suze Orman, John Gray, Dr. Phil Mcgraw, Stephen Covey, Dr. Laura Schlesinger, and many more.

Why The Need, How Many

Ever since Benjamin Franklin praised the virtues of frugality and industry in Poor Richard's Almanac in 1732, a host of inspirational writers, motivational speakers, and self-help gurus have appeared on the American cultural landscape to preach the gospel of success through self-reliance and thinking optimistically.  Books such as the Horatio Alger novels, Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People, Norman Vincent Peale's The Power of Positive Thinking, and Thomas Harris's I'm OK, You're OK  have sold millions of copies and left their marks on American popular culture.  What's more, the authors of these books have often doubled as public speakers, traveling around the nation promoting their messages in a style that is borrowed partly from salesmen and partly from preachers.

There are literally thousands of professional lecturers in the U.S.  Over the past decade, the number of speakers on the lecture circuit has more than doubled, according to the National Speakers Association (Tempe, AZ).  The N.S.A. promotes and trains its members, whose median income from speaking engagements in 2000 was $55,000 (down from $73,000 in 1997).  This was nearly double the 1990 figure of $30,000.  Marketdata estimates that the U.S. talk circuit is probably worth in the neighborhood of $1 billion overall, counting all types of speakers.

Lecture agencies claim that there are 5,000+ professional speakers in the United States today.  Most have limited earnings, with maybe a few hundred that are doing extremely well.  There are only about 20 that do exceptionally well, earning $1 million/year or more.  This chapter focuses on and provides in-depth profiles of some of the more well-known of this select group of motivational speakers.
