Make More Money: Become a Presenter

by: Carrie Myers Smith

Diversification

Improve your bottom line by using your skill set—and your passion—for speaking in front of crowds.

Working as a group instructor or personal trainer, you speak to and teach people every day. Becoming a presenter for events is a natural extension of what you already do. And you don’t have to go far to find opportunities for speaking engagements. Hotels and resorts in your area, gyms, health food stores and co-ops, local businesses and specialty groups, schools and colleges, conferences, wellness fairs and expos, hospitals and other non-profit companies: All are potential sources of extra income for you.
