Hi, I have been a full time speaker for over 25 years with more than 2,500 PAID presentations to over 500 companies, associations and governmental agencies worldwide. In addition to having a successful speaking business, I have been working with and coaching/mentoring speakers, trainers, coaches and consultants to get them on the fast track to building and growing their businesses.
In these challenging, changing and competitive times you must have a coach/mentor who knows what works, what doesn’t and who has “been there, done that.” I will take the guesswork out of running a speaking, training and coaching business and be your accountability coach to make sure things get done. We will focus on your needs, challenges and concerns with real-life, practical, simple to understand and easy to implement solutions. Plus … I will share everything … nothing will be left out!!
“Arnold, thank you for working with me to launch my speaking, training and coaching business. Because of your valuable advice and counsel I am already seeing results! I have already booked a high fee speaking and coaching opportunity!”Wendy King
Don’t be fooled, many people may proclaim to be a speaking business coach. Do they have a solid track record? ; Are they booking 100 ++ paid presentations a year?; Are they living the lifestyle you want to live?; And are they making the money you want to make?
“Arnold, your advice really works! Business is coming to us — In fact, 3 speakers bureaus just requested information on my services.”Rick Mauer
I am offering you an affordable and specific, easy to understand and proven system to provide you with the guidance you’ll need to feel comfortable and confident in all aspects of this lucrative, fun and exciting business. My program helps you focus by determining who you are, where you want to go and what specific steps are necessary to get there. I will help develop a customized step by step, easy to understand and real life strategy with a roadmap tailored to your unique needs. I also realize that everyone is different and there is no one system that works for everyone. Every person has a unique combination of background, expertise, style and goals. I will help you reach your goals with a tailored program customized for you.

Although there are plenty of books, seminars and resources about building a speaking and training practice, these alone can’t compare to a “live” expert who is available for you when daily concerns like presentation skills, pricing, proposals, networking, reviewing materials or other concerns arise. And as your accountability coach, you are never alone!
“I want to thank you again for a great session. You really have a gift – for turning a seemingly average opportunity into something magical, (i.e. more dollars)”Mark Sincevich
“I am following your advice and your step-by-step workbook and I already have booked a number of speaking engagements. Thank you!”Roz Trieber
You can call, text, fax or e-mail me as much as you want and even everyday if you wish. Some clients call daily, others weekly and some at our scheduled meetings. I promise to always be approachable, eager to speak with you and willing to get back within the day.
“To Mr. Marketing, without you and your mentoring program, neither my business or this book would be a reality”Robyn Webb, Author of “Pynch of Thyme”
In addition, I will supply you with a my e-book, “Speaking for $$$” to provide you with a step by step guide to building a speaking practice. It also includes; resources, sample letters, proposals, agreements, forms, marketing materials, flyers and much more. By working with my program you will get a license to use these templates for your business. This will save you time, aggravation and money.
I will also act as an agent for you. I get many requests from those looking for speakers and trainers and I refer the people in my mentoring and coaching program first!
“Many thanks for an excellent work session! You gave me so many great ideas to spark my speaking business. I was impressed by your wealth of information. My time with you was definitely well spent.”Rick Buckingham
This investment is low enough for anyone who is serious about building a business and high enough to show me your commitment to making this business work for you. Plus, it is easy to make your money back through increased business and/or higher fees. In fact, for many people your investment will be paid back in one or two speaking engagements.
“What do you say to someone who has given you the tools to help others while giving you the opportunity to dramatically increase your income? Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”Ronald Baras
I will work with you on an ongoing basis. You are never alone! You can e-mail and call me as much as you want. I promise to have an answer for you every time. Here are a few of the questions that are asked and answered on a daily basis. Are some of these your concerns?
“Arnold, As you know, in coaching we recognize the power of gratitude. I am grateful to have met you. And, I thank my lucky stars that you are my mentor. You are a good role model for me, and a good person: a real mensch. You are truly dedicated and the “Go To” guy when it comes to aspiring speakers. Thank you.”Dr. Allan Stafford
These and thousands of other questions come up on a daily basis. Some of these take a few minutes for me to answer and others take hours. Whatever it takes and no matter how long it takes I will have an answer for you. I will never give you just a cursory answer, but an in-depth “how to” solution.
“You are the best mentor an aspiring speaker and author could have discovered. Thanks to your guidance, this book is a reality and my speaking and law firm is growing everyday! Thank You … Thank You …”Warmest Regards, Cheryl Frank., JD, CPA. Author of “How To Survive An IRS Attack
I am only working with a few people in this program as it can be very time consuming. Admission is limited and it is on a first come, first serve basis. If you want to stop wasting time, money, energy and making costly mistakes, this program is for you.
“Arnold’s coaching/mentoring program is like getting a MBA in the speaking/training business. It was a great investment. He provided me with tips, tools, contacts, resources and real life solutions to get my business on the fast track. I especially liked his ongoing 1 to 1 coaching. I was never alone. He was always available and got back to me promptly with any questions or concerns. If you are looking for an easy to understand and implement step–by–step roadmap from a super successful speaker/trainer who will share everything, Arnold is the right choice!”Carson Tate, CPO, President Living Simply and Working Simply
The investment is as follows. I have two options, a six month unlimited access value based coaching/mentoring program or the use of my services on an hourly basis. My unlimited access, value based flat fee includes everything (time) except printing of materials, fees to vendors, supplies, etc. This is the most popular and advantageous for my clients. Some of the reasons why this works well for you include:
“I am so happy that we’re working together – you’re instrumental to my success. I have learned so much from you already and can’t wait to learn more. Thank you for being a part of my team!”Colleen Vossler, Vossler Negotiations

“Arnold, I couldn’t have built my business without you! I am well on my way and through every step you have been approachable, available, responsive and most of all you know all the do’s and don’ts of the speaking and training business. You are a great coach and mentor” Steve Weber, aka “Forest Gump”Steve Weber, aka “Forest Gump”
I am happy to talk with you to see if this opportunity makes sense for you. This is not a “get rich quickly scheme” but a program to build a solid foundation to grow a sustaining business. I will provide you with the pros and cons of my program. I am not out to “hard sell” my coaching to you if it is not right for you and there is not a real good chance for your success. Working with speakers is a passion of mine. My goal is make the fee low enough for you to afford, and high enough to make sure there is a high level of commitment.
“Thank you for all of your help during the past year. You are terrific and your support has been outstanding. You are an excellent coach. You are always upbeat, sincere and professional.

To find out how to start your speaking business from scratch, here’s a link to a Washington Post story about how Arnold started his speaking and training business
“I was recently talking to other speakers (NSA-VA) about how to sort through and make sense of all the offers from people who work with speakers. I told them that my investment with you 10 years ago (!) made all the difference in my business and I think about and do things you taught me all the time. Thanks for being part of my success”Sean Carroll
“As a result of following your suggestions with the evaluation form, etc., I booked a client from the talk I did last week. Thanks for paying for yourself 6 times over in the first week!! Not bad from just a week after working with you”Susan Trivers

“Arnold, Not a day goes by that I don’t think about your generosity of help you give me. It is never taken for granted. And I want you to know that. Thank you for being a great mentor and coach”DW Starr
“I love that you walk your talk! Follow-up is a key component to business success. It will take me a while to digest all that you have said but I have already a few baby steps. First, I contacted an attorney to work on a licensing agreement and make sure that I have protected my IP. And second I have sent follow-up emails to the business cards that I had collected in my suit pocket. Trying out Constant Contact is next. I really enjoyed our session and have a lot of ideas to implement. I expect our first meeting will not be our last!”Cheers – Jennifer H. Elder, CPA, CMA, CIA, CFF, CGMA, MS
“Arnold Sanow is a dream coach for someone wanting to start and/or grow a speaking business. I interviewed several coaches before Arnold and was not satisfied. Arnold is a very successful speaker who coaches because he genuinely cares about helping others. This is reflected in several ways: His fees are reasonable and affordable. He really listens, and is gently honest in his responses. He helped me look at the topics I really want to talk about, and helped me answer the question, “Is this marketable? Who will buy this? How can you reach them?” And he responds to my phone and email questions with wit and wisdom. As long as Arnold is coaching speakers, he will be my coach. I strongly recommend that you explore this with him – he’ll be straight with you about whether or not he thinks it will work. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have as you make your decision.”Terry Nicolett
"Based on comments and a review of the overall conference evaluations, it was a success. Arnold was a hit!! His scores are the highest of anyone who spoke at the conference."
- Stewart Shaw, Vice President Heery International
"Hands down, I will tell you that your seminar was one of the best I have ever attended. Maybe even the best!"
- Annie Davis, President Alliance of Professional Nanny Agencies
“Arnold was excellent. In fact, his audience size grew substantially on his second day which makes me assume people were talking.”
- Heather Mathews, Meeting Planner, American Bus Association
