Think speaking engagements are just for motivational speakers?
Anyone can speak -- and the beauty of speaking engagements is that it immediately brands you as an expert, which is an invaluable tool for building a client list.
Think about your career. What do you do? From that -- what lessons could you speak about? Tips? Tricks? You can be a motivational speaker, too, but it can be more specifically geared toward your profession.
Don't know where to get speaking engagements? Try posting that you're available for speaking engagements or are looking for some on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Someone is bound to have a place. Also, look at your town. What kind of events are going on? Will they have speakers there? You can contact them to find out how to become one.
People want to hear what you have to say. So say something.
