If you are making a presentation to a prospect does their nodding mean they are ready to buy? Well, that may depend upon whether you are talking to a man or a woman.

I just read a GREAT blog post by the wickedly funny motivational speaker Brad Montgomery on the Worst Audience for a Motivational Speaker. He was so forthcoming with some of his experiences that it made me want to share one of mine. And it was, indeed, a nightmare.

The Best Parenting Advice EVER!

By Linda Larsen - Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Featured Image

I think I became a motivational speakerbecause I wanted to help people live their very happiest, healthiest and best lives. I see thousands of people in my audiences every year who are living with beliefs about themselves that are not only untrue, but frequently undermine their success in all areas of their lives. I have often wished that our parents had known how they needed to live and what they needed to teach their children to prevent this pain that so many of us experience in life.

When motivational speakers finish an event, many have been known to enjoy a good margarita. And I must say - I love a really good margarita.  So when a friend of mine who used to work at a VERY famous hotel in NYC made one of these for me, I was certainly happy to do a taste test.  After one sip, my eyes rolled back into my head, my lips started twisting and I burst into an aria.  So when I say this margarita is PHENOMENALLY GREAT - I do NOT exaggerate.
