Darren LaCroix



It has been such an honor to serve as President of NSA VA the past year. We have achieved a lot. Our website is marvelous, and membership has increased. None of these things would have been possible without the extraordinary committee that I served with this year. So many members of the committee have worked behind the scenes and I would like to thank everyone for the dedication to NSA Virginia and all their efforts. Thank you, of course to all of our wonderful members and I hope to see you at the meeting in June.

What could you learn from someone who quit their day job and survived on product sales alone?
What if he tracked every product sold, at every presentation, how many attendees, and the dollars earned per 
head for the past five years?
Currently 70% of Darren LaCroix's income is derived form product sales and does NOT sound like an infomercial 
while on stage. He is also the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking.

You'll discover Darren's 12 Marketing Musts, his two "they don'ts",  and the one "they want to." His ideas will change how you think about product and how it should be an intregral part of any professional speakers business no matter what level you are at! Some ideas will earn you money, some ideas will save you money, which would you prefer?
