202. How to Transition Into Speaking Full-Time
Are you a part-time speaker, or are you someone who speaks on occasion? Or maybe you’re doing a lot of speaking on the side while still working your full-time job, and you’re wondering how to transition into full-time speaking. If any of those scenarios sound like you then you’re in luck!
Today’s episode is completely dedicated to this very topic – how to transition into speaking full-time. Melanie and I will share our own stories of how we went from part-time speakers to having full-time speaking careers.
We’ll also tell you when it makes the most sense to make the transition, how to juggle everything before, during and after the transition and how best to prepare yourself so you can make the transition as smooth as possible. Join us for those topics and more on episode 202 of The Speaker Lab.
