Dr. Judith Briles


My latest book is How to Create a $1,000,000 Speech. I’ve authored 36 books — three categories: personal finance in the 80s and 90s; behavior/toxic workplaces in female dominated workplaces in the late 80s to 2010. Now, focusing on the publishing area.

I’ve made my living with my published words and my mouth for over 30 years, speaking from the platform in all 50 states, 15 countries, and on land and sea—small groups of less than 20 to large groups with 5,000. In person, over 1,000 presentations; online, over 400. Whew!
