Speaking Business vs. Speaking Job

Do you have a speaking business or a speaking job? Most speakers have a speaking job, but they think its a business! A business pays you when you sleep, while a job only pays when you’re there.

R.I.P. Professional Speaking Business 1958-2019

This is really going to upset a lot of my old friends at the National Speakers Association. Regardless, this is the truth: It’s over.
