Most people think they know what the most profitable skill is in the world, but most don't know. In fact, before you continue reading this article I want you to take a guess.

Finished guessing yet? Let's discover the most profitable skill in the world and take action to make it happen in our life.

I bet you didn't know that professional platform speaking is the most profitable skill in the world? Why is it?

We can mutually agree, public speaking is the #1 fear in the world. In fact the fear of public speaking ranks higher than the fear of a terrorist attack or death itself. Jerry Seinfeld said it best, "The person delivering the eulogy at a funeral would rather be in the casket, than giving the eulogy."

People simply fear public speaking and it supports the reality that if you have excellent speaking skills and you're passionate about manifesting a career in public speaking, you can make millions speaking.

How does one become a member of the most profitable skill in the world? I highly recommend you conduct some research about the speaking industry. Better yet, hire a professional speaking coach because they can help you save time and lot's of money.

If you're an aspiring speaker and decide to become a Lone Ranger, meaning you want to figure it out on your own, chances are you will not figure it out, make a lot of mistakes, and it will cost you dearly.

Hire a professional speaking coach to guide you on your journey. A speaking coach will help you establish your speaking business, in other words, you will quickly learn professional speaking is a real business, otherwise it will be the most expensive hobby in the world.

You will also have to decide what topic you're passionate about, hint, hint, find out what the top 10 speakers, talk about about, in other words focus on the top speakers and the topics they speak on because it will reveal the best topic areas.

For example, customer service will likely be one of the top topics, leadership is always a winner as is motivation.

Attend your speaking coaches training program, it will accelerate your learning and you will also be able to network with other likeminded people. Become a sponge and learn everything you can about the professional speaking industry.
