You want to know to make money during the pandemic? You’re not going to be lecturing on a cruise ship any time soon. But you can still generate income. How much to charge?
The CLIA (Cruise Ship Industry Assn) has come out to say that member lines won’t be sailing until at least Nov 1, 2020.Euro, Canada and others are not letting USA in! A Norwegian Ship had 40 get hit this week. If you have a booking – fahgettaboudit!
I am concerned about 2021. My next one is in March. I’ll just have to play it by ear. I think a good idea is to wait until your ship has sailed once with no infections. I’m just sayin’.
So do your talks via ZOOM. I currently hold 8 ZOOM sessions that I was doing on site. I love it. NO travel and I’m done in an hour. I update my stock Enrichment talks with current info. I love not driving for up to an hour each way to give a talk.
Yes, you can solicit talks – contact associations, retirement communities, service clubs. They all want to continue providing value to their members. But how much to charge? Here is a neat link to a formula for figuring it out. I discount a lot to “hook” them – you’re saving money and can do more than the one you’d have to drive to.
