Life coach + motivational speaker?

What do you think about pursuing speaking engagements as a complement or support to a life coaching practice?

I am considering getting in touch with CHO’s (Chief Happiness Officers) through my network to offer workshops or lunch-and-learn mini-conferences on topics related to managing your mind in the workplace, mindfulness, stress management, etc. I am thinking these could be a good income stream, and would also put me in front of possible one-on-one clients who would resonate with my approach.

Of course this is a plan that needs to be fleshed out, but I was wondering if some of the coaches you’ve trained have followed a similar route? Thank you for your thoughts!
