‘Speak to Scale with Jessica Rasdall’ is a podcast for entrepreneurs who want to scale their business with public speaking. Each and every week we’re sharing expert interviews, actionable education, and inspiration to help you grow your business from the stage.
Adding speaking to your business doesn’t have to be a mystery. Whether you’re an entrepreneur ready to add speaking to their business or you’re planning to host your own events, Speak to Scale breaks down the barriers between organizers, speakers, and attendees to elevate education in our industry and raise the bar for live events.
As a fellow entrepreneur, I know just how hard you’ve worked to build a business that you’re proud of. After spending the last 15 years traveling the country sharing my own story I’ve learned a thing or two about the power of speaking. Today, I’m helping you leverage the power of public speaking to scale your business so that you can increase your impact and income. Welcome to Speak to Scale with Jessica Rasdall.
Ep. 149 - Scale from the Stage with a Digital Product Shop (ft. Christina Scalera)
As a service provider, you’re limited by time, which obviously caps the income you can generate as a service provider. In this episode of Speak to Scale, we’re always exploring opportunities to scale your impact and your income—so we’ve brought on Christina Scalera, owner of The Contract Shop®, to share all about building a digital product shop!
If you had a digital product shop to accompany your business, what kind of impact could it make? Listen in as we discuss how quickly you can launch and scale your product shop, generate an income, and serve your customers! Plus, Christina is even sharing how she offers discounted pre-sales while she developing her products so she’s getting paid to create each item!

Ep 148 - Should You Be Paid for Summit Speaking
As virtual summits have become more and more popular, a new conversation has popped up: Should summit speakers get paid for their presentations? This may seem like a simple yes or no question, but everyone has a different answer.

We’ll take a look from several different perspectives to decide if, and when, summit speakers should get paid.

Ep 147 - Repurposing Summit Presentations (ft. Nicole Batey)
"Now what?" This is a question about summits that I get all the time inside our Speaking Strategy Academy. You get invited to present at a virtual summit or event, and you spend all that time crafting a presentation, preparing for the event, and generally pouring your best ideas into it. But then what?
Today's guest realized that we as speakers are missing a huge opportunity when it comes to what we do after those virtual summit presentations.

Ep 145 - Scale from the stage with Virtual VIP Days (ft. Jordan Gill)
Want to start speaking at more conferences, on more podcasts, or at more events...but don’t know how you can comfortably step away from your everyday work as a business owner? I’ve been there, and I completely understand being torn between the two.
The thing is, you don’t have to take on new and exciting speaking roles at the expense of the quality of your work and the value you provide for your clients. You can continue to serve your people, while also reaching a brand new audience from the stage. I have a very special guest with me on today’s episode to talk about doing just that.

However, when you’re doing an in-person event, you have to take preparation to the next level.
