The Pros And Cons Of Being A Motivational Speaker

Being a motivational speaker also has their ups and downs, you have to step out of your comfort zone once in a while in order to better enhance yourself as a speaker. Speakers mostly travel around the country to go to different conventions and seminars where they are either invited or hired. They travel to different cities across country and sometimes when a client hires them and offers to fly them to another country for a motivational talk then that’s the time that these speakers can truly rake in the big bucks. Here are some of the pros and cons of a motivational speaker.


Traveling around for these motivational speakers is something that they enjoy. They enjoy traveling across the country to speak at a one or two day seminar or training. They simply love the ideas of traveling to other places that they have already visited or have never gone to. Other speakers love the peace and quite of their travel. A 3 hour plane trip to their destination greatly relaxes them where they can find time to be by themselves and relax. Some speakers on the other hand love having company when they take a trip to different locations across the country, that’s why they sometimes take their children or they take their wife or friend along with them for they love having company and someone to talk to. Lastly they embrace and love being a motivational speaker where they can help other individuals By motivating them and inspiring them into making their life better. These speakers are simply there for the reason that they love what they do and they have no greater pleasure than when they are in front of an audience helping all of them cope with changes in their lives so that they may become a productive member of society.


When these speakers travel, they sometimes leave behind their family for days or a week. This is one reason why some speakers don’t grab offers or invites that are far away. They don’t wish to be far from their families for long periods of time. Some speakers on the other hand hate flying that’s why they seldom take offers that would require them to fly in. They prefer to drive to different locations rather than fly there. Others just simply hate the hassle of traveling to other cities, they find it tiring. That’s why they prefer to take offers from clients that only located near their area so they can easily drive to the destination and drive back home. The fee of these speakers is not that much, is only depends on how a big a client they have. But most of them are not in it for the money; they are in it for the love of the career they have chosen. For helping other people and teaching them what they have learned. To put it simply they find satisfaction when they are helping other individuals to cope with their daily struggles.
