The Memoir Professional’s Speaker’s Manual
The Speaker’s Manual teaches you how to attract clients easily!
Having spoken to groups ranging from a thousand people in a large hall to a handful of people gathered in a library meeting room, Denis Ledoux has used his speaking skills to attract clients to The Memoir Network, his memoir business.
While I have always sold books at speaking engagement—selling $29,000 in books one weekend (I thought I was in heaven!)—my real goal in public speaking is to publicize the Memoir Network and attract long-term clients to its programs and services. Public speaking is an opportunity to ‘strut your wares.’ Clients get to see what you are about. ‘I just wanted to check you out,’ they say before hiring you.
— Denis Ledoux

Your next step
A writing coach can help you at every step of the process. Having “been there and done that”—and being able to talk clearly about it, a memoir-writing coach can point you in the right direction and gently correct your course.
A coach is a teacher, a cheerleader, a critic, a motivator, a writing buddy, a person who holds you accountable for meeting your goals, a good listener, and sometimes an editor—and a coach can be more if you need more.
