Pro Wisdom

Insights from my favorite professional speakers.


"I write everything that seems important and funny in a journal."


"When I was doing stand up I tried to create one minute of A material each day."


"Don't let a person, place or thing go by without asking, 'Can this be funny?'"


"Create your bits as stand alone pieces of five to seven minutes and name them."


"The audience is the only reason we are speakers.  Without them, we don't exist."


"Your best speaking program is like a great novel.  It has a captivating middle."


 "Know what comes next and end on time... end on time... end on time..."


"You can't spend too much time with your audience before and after you speak."


"Every good speaker... was once a bad speaker... who kept on speaking..."
