And ultimately LIVE More!
Whether you’re selling one-on-one, leading a presentation, selling from the stage, or e-mailing a pitch, we’ll show you how to use our proven communication techniques and business processes to EXPLODE your INCOME.
It's about your revenue matching your expertise. But how does that happen exactly?
At Speak Your Way to Cash, we teach professionals to better package, pitch, and sell their products and services.
And when we say "professionals", we mean consultants, trainers, speakers, entrepreneurs, attorneys, doctors, authors… any professional who has something to sell.
And what do they sell? Consulting services, professional services, information, books, courses, training, speaking gigs, or any and all combinations of such.
We educate and train via in-person events, courses, books, podcasts, social media, and even an invitation-only private mastermind group with Ashley, the company founder.
Ashley has demonstrated that all the shiny things that seem out of reach for many of us are totally accessible with "better information" and consistent implementation
CORPORATE PUBLIC HEALTH CONSULTANT
I feel motivated to step out on faith and propose 5- and 6-figure contracts. I would highly recommend this event.
Speak Your Way to Cash Live was everything! I had very high anticipation of the event and it lived up to every bit of the hype. The teaching and information shared was so rich! I walked away with feeling very confident in my ability to be successful in the corporate landscape.
PERSONAL FINANCE COACH & SPEAKER
LEARN WHO TO PITCH, HOW TO PITCH THEM AND WHERE TO FIND PAYING ENGAGEMENTS?
Interesting note on the above video: at 5:00 in, the interviewer states the reason they are even talking. And that reason is Ashley sent her an e-mail pitch. Not once, but twice. Ashley literally pitched her way into this very television interview. THIS IS PART OF WHAT WE TEACH!
Ashley Kirkwood founded Speak Your Way to Cash after leaving her corporate attorney position. The original intent was to help speakers level up their game and book the 5-6 figure corporate and university contracts everyone wanted.
It began as one in-person event. There were perhaps 20 people there. And it was wildly successful – attendees took the information Ashley presented and, to put it quite bluntly, went out and made money.
Through word-of-mouth alone, a second event was held a few months later. This one had triple the attendance.
But a funny thing also happened – the audience was NOT only speakers. It was consultants, coaches, trainers, authors, executives, lawyers, doctors, entrepreneurs… it was a sea of professionals looking to book more, charge more, and sell more.
These professionals saw speaking as a way to better sell their consulting services, sell their books, sell their training… whatever they offered. And some saw "speaking" on a smaller level than the big stage. After all, isn't leading a training workshop speaking? And trainers and consultants want those bigger corporate contracts too… exactly what Speak Your Way to Cash® was teaching.
So given our expanded audience, the focus shifted slightly to become what we are today – we coach professionals and entrepreneurs on how to use communication and processes to book more, charge more, and sell more.
It's about mindset. It's about speaking. It's about pitching. It's about sales. It's about licensing your information. It's knowing what to say, how to say it, when to say it, and who to say it to. It's about selling from the stage, selling one-on-one, and selling via e-mail pitch. And it's all VERY effective.
How effective? We've had students book $10,000 corporate contracts RIGHT AT OUR EVENTS. Literally by taking what they learned that day, putting together an effective pitch, e-mailing it, and bam, offer received.
We change lives here at Speak Your Way to Cash®.
And that's what we're all about.
We have several informational products to help you book more, charge more, and sell more. Whether you're looking for a book to read or wish to take a deep dive into a comprehensive training course, we've got you covered.
Ashely’s best-selling book is packed full of the information professionals need to reach the top of their industry.
If you’re a speaker, we’ll show you how to take your place on the BIG STAGE.
If you’re in any other industry (consulting, training, sales, entrepreneur, etc.) everything here is relevant to you too.
Packed in this tome is information of how to present yourself, how to pitch, who you should be reaching out to, licensing your information… page after page of Truth Bombs that SIMPLY WORK in today’s business climate.
The SYWTC Home Study course is designed to get you those five to six-figure contracts from corporations and universities.
You know, where you want to be.
We get into EVERYTHING. Mindset (why not you?), developing your expertise into an excellent program the big clients want, learning how to effectively pitch your offer, who to pitch it to, how to follow-up for BIG results, and much more.
This course is no joke – the 10+ modules have been battle tested and proven to produce results and revenue. If you’re serious about growth, then we’re serious about you!
Our live events have become “must-attends” for professionals who are serious about their businesses and are looking to exponentially grow. Our attendees now number in the hundreds (we sell out every time), with an astonishing number of repeat attendees who want the latest in what we offer. Why? Because what we teach not only works, but is immediately deployable.
Our now-annual three-day event has become legendary.
It is here where people learn how to package their expertise, services, and wares into an irresistible presentation that corporations, universities, and other organizations want.
It is here where speakers, consultants, authors, attorneys, educators, and other professionals all come together and get the hands-on interaction and instruction from Ashley and other experts who have walked the talk.
And it is here where a recent student took what she learned, went back to her hotel room that night, put together a proposal, e-mailed it out, and LANDED A CONTRACT the next day. If that doesn’t tell you how powerful and life-changing this event can be, nothing will.
This is the event people come back to again and again. Why? Because each time something magical happens. And this year will be no different
As a black woman, Ashley understands the barriers society has created, intentional or not. And, along with several other professional women of color, she’s put together a program specifically for Black Women who want to KILL IT in sales and business.
This is real stuff from real people. Epic Sistahs who have stared down and overcome the mental roadblocks and stereotypes that have kept many professional black women from the success they DESERVE.
This is our most specific and intimate event. Because it’s centered on a particular demographic – one that gets ignored over and over. But not here, and not now. In fact, once you know what we know and do what we do, NOBODY will EVER ignore you again. For no other reason than the confidence, competence, and professionalism you will project.
This is the event of the year for Professional Black Women.
And you need to be IN THE ROOM.
FOUNDER + CEO OF SPEAK YOUR WAY TO CASH
Ashley Kirkwood is an entrepreneur, speaker, and award-winning lawyer. As a renowned corporate attorney, she reached what many would call a peak – a $300k+ job. But she left it to go on her own.
She began a virtual law firm, which quickly replaced and then surpassed her previous income. But along the way, she realized two things: she loved speaking and teaching, and she also had a real talent for scaling up a business. She perfected packaging and presenting professional services to corporations and other organizations, and started teaching others. Speak Your Way to Cash® was born.
Ashley’s enthusiasm and success mindset are infectious, and her results have been well-documented. Most important to her, however, is how her teachings help, inspire, and empower others. Professionally, that’s what she lives for.
Ashley has been recognized as a thought leader by FORBES, Crain's Chicago Business, Black Enterprise, The Chicago Tribune, and more.
DIRECTOR OF SALES
Chris Kirkwood is an educator and sales professional at heart. Always walking an entrepreneurial / non-profit professional path, he’s mentored, coached, and established programs directed at helping high school and college students reach and exceed their goals.
Chris also developed a sales process that he called “empathetic selling”, aimed at teaching sales professionals how to sell from a more introverted perspective that looks to educate and help people. This has proven to be incredibly effective (all sales training likes to “say” they help people, but Chris truly walks the talk.)
With Speak Your Way to Cash® poised for expansion, Ashley convinced him to come on board as Sales Director in February of 2021.
Since that time, the company has experienced exponential growth. Chris’ voice has become instrumental in the company’s offerings, teachings, and overall tone, where an empathetic, helpful demeanor (plus stellar client results) are what truly drives business.
