I have gone through Carla's Get Paid From the Stage program. The value she gives is way more than the cost of her program! She helps you every step of the way and shows you the "ins" and "outs" of the speaking biz. She gives valuable insights and she helps you learn from her mistakes, so you know exactly what to do and what NOT to do. She also includes bonuses in her program that I have not seen with other speaker programs. This course is worth every penny! Highly recommend Carla and this program!

“Carla has absolutely changed my life. In 6 short weeks, I learned more than I could have imagined about the business side of public speaking - from creating materials to knowing how to set and negotiate price - and I feel that my career is years ahead of where it would otherwise have been. On top of that, she is a lovely and caring person who truly has the well-being of her students at the forefront of her heart and mind. Thank you so much, Carla, for jumpstarting my career!!”

"While I have been speaking for decades in my career, the strategy of building a speaking business was challenging for me. The Get Paid from the Stage course solidified my plan to move forward. She selflessly shares plans and tools she has developed and used to build her business. She willingly admits that many of the lessons were born from lessons she learned, often the hard way. She encourages the cohort to help each other so I also have built a few new connections along the way. I highly recommend working with Carla if you get the chance."

If you're looking to embrace your inner speaker and take charge of your career, Carla's program is an absolute MUST. I'd do it again in a heartbeat, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to rock their speaking game!"
