It’s a common question I get. People see me on stage and imagine the lifestyle of a speaker. Whipping in, collecting a fee, having fun interacting with the audience and stopping by the bank on the way home.
Well I have been speaking for a while now. And as they say, you are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
Speaking isn’t really as simple as dropping in and getting a check.
This is a business…like any other business.
But it is fun. And you can help a lot of people.
