“You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.”

This popular expression points to something much more lucrative than a whole bunch of back scratching. It’s at the core of Black Card Books’ Fund It Speech Campaign, which puts you in front of an audience at no cost to the host organization other than a commitment to purchase an agreed-upon number of copies of your book. Your back is scratched; your client’s back is scratched. Everyone is a winner.

As an author, you have much more to offer than the wisdom and advice printed on the pages of your published book. Your book is a great start, but it’s a launching point, not a destination. Getting yourself in front of audiences and sharing your expertise and advice is crucial to further establishing yourself not only as a published author, but as someone who knows your material like the back of your hand. You are someone whose core message is relevant to those who have come to hear you speak.

On the surface, getting your foot through the door as a speaker can be a daunting task. Where to begin?

The Fund It Speech Campaign is designed to make that mission not only less daunting, but a reality. It’s all about selling yourself as a credible expert on the subject you have chosen to focus your book on. You walk onto the stage and take to the microphone as a published author. You have instant credibility. Your address will only add to that, setting the foundation for a reputation as a must-be-heard expert in your field.

Soon enough, unsolicited invitations to speak will come your way. What a wonderful position to be in!

Black Card Books is committed to providing you with helpful tools to guide you on your journey as an author and help you fully maximize marketing strategies and approaches. In the previous edition of The Power of Performance Newsletter, we featured Attaining Media Coverage: Now Is Not The Time To Be Silent. Now your journey continues with The Fund It Speech Campaign: The Big Stage Beckons.

As an author looking to take the next big step in marketing yourself as a credible, recognized authority in your area of expertise, getting in front of an audience is key. The effect of that is immeasurable as word of the value of your message, and your ability to effectively deliver it,quickly spreads. That brings you more speaking invitations.

Millie Leung – Sharing Her Life-Changing Journey To The Benefit Of Thousand


As a highly sought after mentor, speaker and trainer, Millie Leung is the embodiment of anything being possible if you put your heart into what you believe and go for it.
Millie Leung 3D Book Cover

Millie’s drive and commitment to her message has seen her speak to audiences throughout the Asia-Pacific region, in such locales as Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Her most recent speaking engagement in Singapore saw her address more than 10,000 entrepreneurs from across Asia, all anxious to hear, and benefit from, her techniques for starting and building a successful business, and the mindset that type of success requires. 

In June, Millie’s book, Mind And Money Makeover: How To Transform Your Life In 3 Years Or Less And Live Your Dreams, will be launched. On its pages, Millie reveals a proven five-step system that will transform your life and enable you to realize your dreams, shatter common and limiting beliefs that prevent you from reaching your full potential, and offer you a proven formula for generating more income.

As Millie says, one doesn’t need luck or special talents to change one’s life. One just has to decide it’s time to do so.

It was in September 2011 that Millie began her journey towards financial freedom. As a senior merchandising manager with a Seattle-based firm, she seemingly had all she needed to make her happy, but inside, she was consumed by a desire to work towards achieving her dreams,not someone else’s. By November 2013, together with her husband, she had established 10 streams of income – a number that continues to grow – and she has become financially free.

Now Millie’s goal is to share her journey with as many people as possible, ensuring they avoid the mistakes she made, are exposed to the lessons she learned and inspire them to get started on their own journey towards financial freedom by building a profitable home business.

“The reasons I wrote my book were to elevate my brand, expand my audience reach and further expand my business. As taught by Gerry Robert, I plan to develop a series of products based on my book in the future (such as eBook/Kindle, an online webinar training series, in-person workshops, a coaching program, etc.) and I look forward to securing more publicity from the book too.” – Millie Leung
