5 Week Challenge logo.jpg

The PAID to $PEAK 5-Week Challenge will transform your speaking in just 5 sessions!  You'll have me as your guide and coach walking you through my entire PAID to $PEAK framework that I apply in my own speaking business.


As long as you do the work and SHOW UP, I stand behind my content, guidance and support resources that you will earn a $2,500 speaking engagement within 6 months.

The 5-Week Challenge is an acute period of time where you have access to me in a weekly LIVE group Q&A to guide, support and answer all your questions about earning PAID speaking engagements.  You also are part of a community cohort to connect with other speakers.


You'll receive my entire PAID to $PEAK Online Course (click here for details) and each week we will focus on a particular Module leaving no stone unturned!  My course is based on my #1 and best-selling book for speakers, PAID to $PEAK, which has enabled me to speak for over 1,000,000 people through 1,150+ audiences in all 50 states and several countries.  

Not feeling readyGood!  The point of my 5-Week Challenge is to Get You Ready! 

If you are committed to your speaking though, then accept the challenge! It's an acute period of time where I will be your coach for 5-weeks - guiding, supporting and answering your questions along the way to ensure you GET RESULTS!  Plus, I'll be sharing extras NOT included in the book and online course.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cohort?

     The cohort is the group of individuals banded together for each 5-Week Challenge.  We will start together and end together!  The additional benefit of cohorts is that you can connect with and support others within the cohort during the 5-Week Challenge and after!  It's a community within a community.

What if I don't feel ready?

    That's the entire point!  The 5-Week Challenge will Get YOU Ready!  Wouldn't it be nice to no longer feel that way?

What if I cannot make the weekly LIVE Q&A group sessions during the 5-week period?

     All Q&A's will be recorded.  You can send your questions in advance for them to be answered during the Q&A!

How long and when are the LIVE Q&A group sessions?

     Full 90 minutes live with Kevin Snyder via Zoom. We'll ask for your questions in advance and que them in priority.  We'll also take questions LIVE.  Unless a better time emerges for the cohort, sessions are scheduled at 12pm EST / 9 am PST.  

Do I have enough time to be ready for the next cohort?

     Yes.  Remember the entire point of the 5-Week Challenge is to Get YOU Ready!  Each week has a focus on a specific Module so you understand CONCEPTS.  As long as you review the Module and do your best to work on it, you should have questions.  You will also learn from others.

What is the structure for the LIVE Q&A sessions?

     Week 1 Q&A will focus on Module 1.  Week 2 focuses on Module 2, etc.  You'll receive the entire Online Course in advance so that you can watch each Module before the Q&A and share your questions in advance!  The LIVE Q&A will focus on your questions!  

Is this just for professional speakers?

    It's for ANYONE at any level of speaking experience who isn't satisfied with their current results and wants to grow in their PAID speaking potential. Whether you are brand new to speaking or have seasoned experience, what's important is where you want to be.

What are the guarantee details?

    If you do the work, you will get results!  If you don't do the work, then don't expect to get results.  It's really no different than a gym membership friends!  If you do the work, meaning you complete all the checklists successfully at the end of each Module and take advantage of the follow up 1:1 complimentary coaching session with Kevin (yes, complimentary!), but do not have your $2,500 speaking engagement or  $2,500+ in speaking engagements, we'll send you a refund. 

Are payment plans accepted?

    Yes, but full payment must be made by session #3.  Click here to inquire about payment plans

Can I pay NOW to lock in the price for a later cohort?

     YES. Smart.

How many individuals are in a cohort?

     It depends.  The PLUS program will be limited to a certain number of people since it includes 1:1 coaching calls from Kevin.  See below for a comparison of Option 1 and Option 2!

What if I need some 1:1 help?
