Motivational-speaker-success has vowed to always bring something new to the table as far as motivational speaking is concerned. That is exactly what we are doing, so we would like to tell you the unexpected secrets that can make your life as a motivational speaker so much easier. Here are five of them.

1. Microphone

Your voice is only as good as your microphone. Without a credible voice, your wisdom and wit will not make any sense past the first row of the audience; hence, you need to pick something, which is not only reliable but also comfortable for you.

Are you more comfortable with something to hold, something to wear on your head, or something to wear on your lapel or collar? There is no standard preference. Anything that you can work with is great.Motivational

Nevertheless, we, at motivational-speaker-success, recommend motivational speakers to use lapel or headset microphone if they tend to be animated or in constant move. On the other hand, those who tend to feel nervous or confused on stage are recommended to use handheld microphone instead. This is because having something to hold actually makes a person feel more comfortable and confident.

2. Merchandise

If a microphone is the secret to a credible voice, then merchandising is the secret to a lucrative career. In fact, motivational-speaker-success has seen a lot of motivational speakers earn big bucks without gaining mainstream fame.

Merchandising is a common practice by famous speakers. Surprisingly though, many are still reluctant to commercialize themselves out of the fear of losing some money. If you are as good as you think you are, and you are confident that your audience will go home wanting more from you, then go and offer them something to take home with. It does not matter if you are famous or not.

What matters is that you get to impress your immediate audience and take advantage of the situation before they leave the venue. You can sell self-help books, e-books, CDs and DVDs, motivational badges and bookmarks, and anything that you think can complement your speech and image.

3. Floor fan

Heat and sweat can make speakers uncomfortable, resulting to confusion, irritation, unresponsiveness, haziness and apparent exhaustion. A cool venue may not be a problem for an audience who only sits all the time.
However, for a speaker who stands for more than an hour, who walks endlessly on stage, who moves arms animatedly, and who basks in the hot spotlight, this can be big challenge.

Placing a fan on both sides of the stage suffices in making your delivery look more comfortable and spontaneous. You can move however you like without looking tired and annoyed. Do not rely on air conditioners alone. Trust us, they rarely suffice.

4. Pen or marker

We thought that bringing a pen or marker on stage is basic. Imagine our surprise when we learned that a lot of speakers do not do this.

One of the common reasons why speakers get confused and pause awkwardly while in the middle of their speech is their inability to constantly keep track of their script or outline. This is especially true for speakers who do a lot of adlibs and those who prefer to use outlines than completely written speech. This problem can be easily solved by a pen or marker, which can be discretely used on the podium.

Bring one even if you do not think that you need one. Emergencies are called as such because they are never expected to happen at all.

5. Heel pads

Let us guess, you never expected to read “heel pads” here in motivational-speaker-success at all. We cannot blame you since heel pads are not the first things that you think of upon hearing motivational speaking. They are, nevertheless, very helpful when you are scheduled to deliver an hour-long speech while embracing the whole stage all for yourself.

Heel pads, especially the silicone ones, make standing and walking around the stage for over an hour less painful, less tiring, and less uncomfortable. Reading this may seem trifle, but wait until you experience the hell of having to stand and walk while fighting your nerves and delivering a speech all at the same time. Just thinking about it already makes a lot of motivational speakers shake in jittery. What more when you are already actually there?

Picking Your Golf Iron Sets The Right Way

We observe that golfers are buying golf iron sets that are not appropriate for their game. Often, customers come to us complaining that the balls they hit are always landing on the wrong places. These customers have been playing golf for years. We understand if the complaining customer is a beginner but to not so beginner in the game, we expect that they know better. It seems that they still commit mistakes.

If you are one of these golfers, here is a list of guidelines to help you choose the best iron sets for you.

Choose the right combination

In a game of golf, you can bring up to 14 clubs. You may bring lesser than 14 clubs but just make sure you have a driver, a putter, wedges and a few irons (or hybrid clubs for that matter). When we say golf iron sets, we are not just referring to the long irons that most players have a hard time using them to hit a golf ball. We are talking about a set of golf clubs. These are called as iron sets because of the materials used during manufacturing.

Golf Iron SetsNowadays, we use different types of irons to produce clubs from the shaft down to the club head. Unlike the ancient times, golf clubs are made of woods, literally. Even the fairway “woods” that you are familiar with, they are made of metals. We still refer to this set as woods because of their specific features and purpose during a golf play. These woods have higher loft and shallow club face. You may use these woods in hitting a ball in the fairway or out of a turf over a small hill obstacle.

Since you need a set to play the game, be prepared for the worst obstacle you may encounter in a game. Thus, bring at least a sand wedge, a lob wedge, and a pitching wedge. Theses wedges are helpful on difficult golf courses with uneven terrain in the green. Bringing one or two putters are enough. Two golf drivers and the rest comprises your irons.

Evaluate your ability

The next factor to think of in picking the right golf iron sets is your ability. We are happy to share you that golf clubs are now player-friendly. We have irons that are suitable for beginners and mid-range players who have difficulty using the traditional long irons. These hybrid irons are more forgiving and can help you improve your play. As you practice and play more, you can work on your handicap and try to decrease mishit. When you think your first set seems not working for you, consider changing the set you currently have with a set that is more appropriate for you current style.

Callaway golfFor leftie players, we have clubs that are suitable for you. We know that playing using your right hand to hit the ball is hard. Thus, we added golf clubs for left-handed players. Although learning to play using the right hand is possible, hitting the ball with the hand that you are comfortable with improves your overall play.

Know your irons

Golf iron sets vary due to the materials used. Some irons are heavier than the others are. We also have irons that are made of pure steel, that are alloys or a combination. We also offer golf clubs with heads that are cavity-backed or are manufactured using casting methods. If you play frequently, we recommend that you purchase irons that are superior in quality. These iron sets may be more expensive but buying is worth the value of your money.

Taylormade golfFor a beginner in golf, we suggest that you buy second-hand golf clubs while you are still trying to determine your swing and the power of your hits. When you are certain that you know your ability, you can invest on brand new irons. A single set is expensive so be careful in picking your irons.

Mix and Match

We have a wide array of golf clubs that you can choose from. The mix-and-match technique is much better than buying a whole set because you may end up buying a club that you cannot use in playing golf. Aside from mixing and matching your clubs, we recommend that you have your club’s shaft customized according to your height.

You may buy as many golf iron sets that you can afford but you can only bring 14 clubs inside a golf course. Your current ability as a player is important in picking the right iron sets.
