Bristol Palin, from the former first family of the great state of Alaska, is now available on the lecture tour. Her charges for a speaking engagement are between $15,000 and $30,000, per event. Although that sort of endeavour might involve some travel, it is inspirational.
Certainly, other people must be considering the speaking tour as a means of supplementing their income. For example, there may be sure-hit speakers like the following:
Tiger Woods - on Motor Safety During the Holidays
Governor Mark Sanford - on Argentina as a Tourist Destination
John Edwards - on Key Elements in Creating a Presidential Web Site
Lindsay Lohan - on Understanding the California Court System
Bristol Palin is a guide. Before she is even twenty years old, she has her own public relations company
. The home office seems to be in Anchorage but is there any doubt that branch offices, throughout the country, are in the plans?
Bristol Palin's entrepreneurial spirit has me thinking. If I went on the lecture circuit and did a couple of presentations a week, that would augment the present income significantly. If I charged only a modest $15,000 per engagement initially, that would be $30,000 a week. That's a million and a half for a fifty week year. It's important to take holidays.
And I gave some careful thought to the topic. Whereas Bristol Palin's expertise with teenage pregnancy is obvious, mine is removing stains from stainless steel travel coffee mugs. So many people drink coffee. Thousands - perhaps millions - of those coffee drinkers use stainless steel coffee mugs. And what coffee drinker would not want a perfectly sparkling travel mug? It is just such a timely topic.
I don't want to sound immodest but, in the area of coffee mug stain removal, I considered myself an expert. It would be selfish to not share this skill with a wide national (and perhaps international) audience. And I have Bristol Palin to thank for the motivation.
