    Ep 114 - Coach or Consultant: Which speaker are you?

    If you’ve transitioned into a role where you’re helping others achieve a desired result, you may be unsure what to call yourself. You are not alone! You may have heard the words “coach” and “consultant” used interchangeably and you’re not sure what the difference really is. Maybe you’ve shifted away from being a service provider and started sharing your expertise with others. We see this quite often when our students and speakers are growing as educators.
    Although this may sound like a business issue, it also impacts your speaking strategy. On this episode of The Speak to Scale Podcast we’re breaking down the difference between coaching and consulting to help you figure out which type of speaker you are so that you can start scaling your business from the stage.

No matter where you fall on this scale, I'm willing to bet there's been a moment or two in your life or in your business when there was an opportunity for you to step up to the plate and own your greatness and you second-guessed yourself.

One of the best podcasts out there

As someone who is looking to begin speaking, I started listening to Speak to Scale back in October. Since then I’ve binged episodes like it’s my job, and I’ve found myself re-listening to many of them. Each episode is just so practical and so full of great information. Jessica holds nothing back and gives a real look inside the world of speaking. The best part? She has episodes meant for speakers, and for event organizers, which helps you to see the full view of what the speaking world is like - it’s not one-sided. Highly recommend for anyone even considering speaking or hosting their own events!
