We have 2 questions for you:
Are you an emerging speaker who's ready to turn your passion for speaking into a profession?
For professional speakers, are you prepared to get on more stages & increase your pay/bookings?
If so, then we would be delighted to show you how!
The truth is that our industry is saturated with outstanding speakers like you with remarkable messages. It is becoming harder to get seen, make your mark and command higher pay (or any pay at all).
Many speakers are frustrated trying to figure out how to increase their bookings and generate the impact they are driven to make while getting paid handsomely for it.
The current industry trend for speakers is the "Speak to Sell" model, whereby an individual will speak at an event for no fee but instead has the opportunity to sell their books, products and/or services. A few speakers have truly succeeded in this approach, but the majority are baffled on how to monetize from it.
If you are challenged with making money selling from the speakers' platform and have great credentials, well-paid engagements will be a much easier to attain once you understand the process and how to cut through the crowd.
If you are a rock star at selling from the stage, you can still use the same process and learn how to get more of those types of bookings.
And, if you are still in the beginning stages of your speaking career and determined to grow your speaking platform, understanding the process to get booked will empower you to achieve your goals significantly faster.
Finally, if you are ready to take your message and knowledge to more speaking platforms (or even arenas) as well as increase your bottom line, we would love to invite you to our intensive "Lucrative Bookings" program where you will learn how to connect with decision makers and negotiate higher pay (or more exposure and perks if you are a "speak to sell" speaker).
Learning the steps to rise above the noise and get booked will propel your reach, visibility, career and profits significantly.

“One speaking gig would easily pay for this. My question was 'How can I do this easily? They seem to be so far and in between.' Now I know how to reach out to people, where to go to find them, how to research for them, how to reach out to them. All the templates where provided. I could just fill them out. Now I have an entire plan on how to get the next several gigs without having to wait for them to come in. This was fantastic Cindy. Thank you!"

"I had the pleasure of joining the Lucrative Bookings course led by Cindy Ashton and her company Minerva Enterprises. My expectations were normal for a course, and this was anything but normal. The framework and content are structured so that you actually built a better platform, created a sound marketing strategy, and gained insights to speaking professional that only an accomplished ground breaking presence like Cindy and her team can provide. For me, the most rewarding and enriching element was the live course work where we interacted with other emerging speakers. The dialogue was innovative, as it was a safe space for exploring, reflecting, challenging, and real learning. As a class, we made each other better. All this with lots of laughter and time flying by. A solid core curriculum, only strengthened by Cindy's insightful and supportive guiding hand. Highly recommended for anyone starting in the field or wanting to up their game."

"This course is awesome, thought-provoking, and value-filled. It completely blew my mind. I can’t believe the value that I got out of this. I would have paid 10X. I learned how to get more bookings, how to do our marketing message, and how to reach the decision makers and speak to them more effectively. I know that I am going to step it up a level, and not only in my fees. I am going to get more and more bookings! Thank you, Cindy. Absolutely amazing.
