Welcome back to part two with Amy Carroll, author of Exhale, on how to maximize your return on investment for speaking at events. 

Kathi, Michele and Amy shares some “deal-breakers” for accepting speaking opportunities and how to know when it is okay say no. 

When you are running on a deficit on your ROI, it depletes your ability to do ministry. As speakers, we may want to say yes to everything, but we can’t let our desperation drown out the red flags. 

How do you as a speaker make the most out of events?

In today’s episode, you will know:

  • The importance of boundaries and having the hard conversations. 
  • Deal breakers for accepting events
  • How to make the most of an event, including book tables
  • How to grow your email list
