What is BOOGIE? BOOGIE is a silly name for a serious activity.
In short, BOOGIE is affordable, convenient coaching and consulting with Jim Barber.
If that doesn't interest you, you can quit reading right now. However, if you are interested, consider this....
Here are some of the ways that a little BOOGIE-time will benefit you —
Prepping for a TED Talk — Are you going to give a TED Talk at a TEDx event? This could be the opportunity of a lifetime, so you don't want to go in unprepared! Spending some time with Jim could be the difference between your Talk laying an egg or going viral!
Strengthening your presentation skills — Do you want to strengthen your speaking skills, but Toastmasters isn't enough? Jim has been an active member of Toastmasters for over 30 years, so he knows how to speak effectively. From polishing your speech to connecting with an audience, Jim can help you strengthen your speaking skills!
Improving your video presence — Presenting yourself effectively on video is very different from speaking in front of a live audience! These days, how you appear on video (especially if you're being recorded) is becoming increasingly important. How's your video presence? If you don't look as good on video as you want, Jim can help!
Becoming a pro speaker — Do you want to make the move "from free to fee", but you don't know how to go about it? Jim created the "Pro Speaker U" website, and he specializes in helping people make the transition from being a public speaker to a fee-paid pro!
Making your speaking business more profitable — Are you already a pro speaker, but you want to move your business to a new level? Jim is the author of "The Complete Professional Speaker's Office Kit" and has been – twice president of the Florida Speakers Association, so he understands the business of speaking.
Getting advice and guidance from Jim through the BOOGIE program is both affordable and convenient! Jim uses the Zoom platform, so you get personalized, individual guidance without leaving the comfort of your home or office. And Jim's hours are pretty flexible, so you're almost guaranteed to find a time to talk that's mutually convenient! As for affordability, read on....
Since BOOGIEing with Jim is done online, you need an electronic device (laptop, desktop, smartphone, tablet, etc) with a broadband connection to the Internet. You also need a microphone and speaker (probably built-in to your device); finally, if you want Jim to be able to see you, you also need a camera (again, this is probably built-in).
That's it! Prior to your session, Jim will provide you with the URL with which you can connect with him (via Zoom). You don't need a Zoom account — you'll use Jim's. So the odds are high that you've already got everything you need to BOOGIE with Jim!
I want to keep BOOGIE affordable for even the most cash-strapped individual, so here's exactly what it costs:
For those quick, one-time questions, you can BOOGIE with me for 15 minutes for only $20.
Need more time? Talk with me for a complete half hour for only $35.
Want to discuss things with me for an entire hour? It's a bargain for only $50!
And that's it. No contracts to sign. No minimums. No long-term commitments.
Why so cheap? Just as you can talk from the comfort of your home or office, so can I! I've got no travel costs, no scheduling hassles, and almost no overhead... and I pass the savings on to you!
To arrange your own personal BOOGIE session, just fill out this little contact-form and I'll get back to you and set up a mutually-convenient time. Easy!
I've always enjoyed helping people, and I especially enjoy helping individuals through a personal consultation via BOOGIE. I look forward to talking with you soon!
