Why You Should Speak On Stage And Write A Book


For most people, writing a book or speaking on stage are just items on their bucket list. But let me tell you why you should speak on stage or author a book (better still, do BOTH) for the bigger benefit of business and personal growth.

Despite my main business being digital publishing, I take up at least a few speaking engagements every year and soon I will have my book “Crushing It” out in the local bookstores; prior to this I co-authored Secrets of Millionaire Students.

So should you consider doing the same? Here are a few good reasons that will level up your personal and business success:

1. Increased Perceived Authority.

BIG PLUS here. The moment you stand on stage in front of your audience, you become THE authority figure. It doesn’t matter if you speak in a classroom or an auditorium, it’s the same altogether. You are DIFFERENT from the rest and even in the most sceptical environment, you become THE center of attention. Every word you speak on stage suddenly has weight and your audience are more likely to take you seriously compared to chatting over a cup of coffee at your local mamak or kopitiam.

2. Leverage.

Another BIG PLUS especially when you compare to sales people and network marketers meeting prospects one by one. In a seminar or business preview setting, you can deliver your message to multiple prospects for the same effort. Again back to point [1] your words carry and command more authority vs if you do it in private or in a cafe setting.

Having done several seminars and speeches, I always observe how people perceive me between these scenarios – delivering a speech FIRST often helps with first impression and establishing my credentials as an expert in my field. Bear in mind I was still the same person before I climbed the stage; it’s not like I got any smarter when the spotlight was on me. :)

A friend of mine who has a strong following on YouTube once said to me (paraphrased), “You get a credibility advantage in doing business and making negotiations if people know you FIRST.”

3. Your Book Is Your Best Name Card.

If you can publish your own book or find a publishing house to do it, go for it.  Some people say that books are glorified name cards and in a way, I agree. It is also an amazing credibility tool and message delivery rolled into one – and today with almost all information going virtual, having a published book is now a prized novelty and thus valued more.

4. Train Your Charisma.

Speaking on stage and writing your own book will definitely open doors and lead you to new people. If you consider yourself shy or ‘not good with people’ this is a great opportunity to build your charisma and train up your speaking skills. Get ready because when you have these in place, you will find yourself flooded with opportunities never before experienced!

5. And ultimately…

You still get to strike these items off your bucket list. Only it will be more fulfilling and purpose driven.

My Upcoming Book: Crushing It

I am excited to announce my upcoming book which will be published by Kanyin Publications, called “Crushing It“. This is going to be my first book since I co-authored “Secrets of Millionaire Students” in 2008.

For a long time, I had thought of writing another book on Internet Marketing and online entrepreneurship but truth be told, there are already many books on the same subject flooding both the online marketplace and even our local bookstores here in Malaysia. I wondered if I would have anything else to add.

As someone who has been marketing online and sold millions of dollars in sales on digital and virtual products for the past decade, I have seen trends come and go, and so were the people whom I thought had it all figured out in life.

So what remained consistent? What are the skills and mindset does one need to equip himself for online success?

How does one break out of mediocrity and shoot for the stars, and hence start CRUSHING IT?

That became the title of my book. This is the result of my 10 years of running an online business:

  • Starting on a 56K modem to millions
  • Going from solopreneur to having an in-house team today
  • And ultimately distilled everything into 12 essential rules to success

The timing cannot be any more impeccable. As I am writing this, the exchange rate is USD1.00 = MYR 4.3. The popular perception of Malaysia is that the nation’s economy hasn’t been good at all; now her people are about to be in for harder times ahead. It also doesn’t help that the online marketing scene is pervaded by a mix of ineffective teachings and the ‘startup bandwagon’ that is distracting people, putting them under the illusion of fast riches without meeting the requirements to attain it.

But I always believe that behind every problem or crisis, there is an opportunity.

In Crushing It, I share what works for me and many others, and most importantly what you can do to start generating EPIC results for your leads and sales.

A warning though: this is not a ‘feel good’ book; I tell what you NEED to hear. You won’t find time sensitive information inside, but rather timeless advice with a decade’s worth of track record to back it.

“Crushing It” is expected to hit the major bookstores through Malaysia ETA end of 2015 or early 2016.

ClickBank Asia at Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

ClickBank Asia’s first event in Asia, and they chose to do it in Malaysia! Amazing meet up with the ClickBank managers themselves who came all the way from the US, local ClickBank vendors, affiliates and other online entrepreneurs – some even came from Singapore.

Full day event of insights at marketplace behaviour, tips to cash in on CB, although I place a premium on the valuable networking sessions. Amazing they managed to organize ClickBank Asia in such a short notice, kudos!
