Speaking (Suzanne Evans)

  • Episode #12

Suzanne Evans, founder of Driven Inc., talks about what she calls the fastest path to cash and the foundational success of almost all growth strategies: speaking. Whether on live stages, virtual platforms or social platforms, speaking is essential.

Suzanne Evans, founder of Driven Inc. and a New York Times best-selling author, helps small business owners get more clients and make more money through speaking on every platform.  

Hosts Linda Claire Puig and Ari Iny explore with Suzanne how the fastest path to cash—and the foundational success of almost all growth strategies—runs right through speaking.  

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How anyone can go from zero experience speaking on stage to selling out coaching programs and courses with one speech
  • How Suzanne grew her coaching business to 6-figures in one year…while still holding down a full-time job
  • The #1 biggest problem entrepreneurs face in their marketing—and how getting on stages and virtual platforms will fix it fast
  • And much more!
“A funnel never sold anyone. A person inside of that funnel who inspired people, connected with people—that’s what moves people.”
