Get ready for a fun and lively conversation! We get into the nitty-gritty of speaking in this episode: how to make sure that the speaking opportunities you say yes to are helping you reach  your goals and grow your business vs. derailing you.

My guest Amber De La Garza is a productivity specialist, so we also talk about productivity tips for us as speakers and entrepreneurs. I even ask her to help me with a productivity struggle – and you’ll be surprised by her recommendation (I was!).

Amber shares with us what the National Speakers Association does and how it has helped her in her speaking journey.

We also talk about what it takes to get paid big money for keynotes – and why you may not want to go down that path.
