    Can't think of any guides for making money. From what I can tell, you can seek out conferences that are coming up and apply to be a speaker. Or you can build your rep as an expert in digital marketing and people will come to you.

    Someone I've seen in person and I respect as an influencer that does a lot of public speaking would be Larry Kim.

    Check him out:

    If you want to become an "expert" and get paid to speak about it, sell your information about it, and so on, then check out Brendon Burchard. He is a motivator type of person who teaches other people how to share their advice and make a living doing it.

    But I would however strongly advice to speak about something real, something valuable that you actually spent a lot of time to become an expert on. Become a doctor, physical therapist, psychologist, etc... Don't try to be another lifestyle guru, coach or motivational speaker. In my opinion we have enough of those, but we lack those with real knowledge and expertize about a specific subject.
    Here are some examples on the top of my mind, not all are speakers, but they are definitely experts in their field:
    - Kelly Starrett. He talks about fitness from another perspective than most other experts, he teaches athletes about flexibility, movements, the atonomy of the body and how to avoid injuries...
    - Rhonda Patrick. She is a scientist and focuses on diet, nutrition, vitamins, how to minimize the risk of disease, and all of that, but she differentiates herself by actually doing scientific research, or reading the latest research about it and can understand the science and explain it to normal people.
    - Nathaniel Branden. He was a psycho-therapist who published books about Self Esteem which was his main focus of expertize. It is a really important topic and he brought in examples from his therapy sessions into his books to explain some of his ideas.
