Tweetable Quotes

“Just make a list of the places you want to speak and reach out and ask them, ‘What do I have to do to be a speaker here?’ And, that’s such a simple concept, but it profoundly changed my approach from let me redo my logo, and let me redo my website, and let me become a best-selling author, and let me land a TED Talk to just making a list and reaching out to people and asking to speak there. And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.” (10:55) (Majeed)

“I think it’s a testament to the power of the individual’s voice and the platforms we have available to us to broadcast that one man [Joe Rogan] can be more powerful than I’m assuming many of the major networks combined.” (22:15) (Majeed)

“Really what I am certain of is the fact that each person that I’ve interviewed has a deeper relationship. I’m gonna interview someone or speak to someone’s group, that’s the beginning of a lifelong partnership, ideally. I’m connecting to their world and their community forever, from this point forward.” (31:58) (Majeed)

“When I wanted to be a motivational speaker, I thought, ‘How do I figure out how to get paid speaking engagements? And then I discovered that I was getting clients by accident. These were people who were seeing my speech and coming up to me afterwards and asking me questions like, ‘Can I hire you to do a project? Can I hire you to train my team? Can I hire you to be my coach? And so, I discovered that speaking is actually a great marketing platform.” (36:50) (Majeed)
