How does a sole proprietor make money selling a talking head educational video to schools?
I run a home-based mental health education business and make live presentations in schools. With a business license in health services and some reputation in mental health, I tried to get paid for my [i]Insight and Summary of Major Mental Illness[/i] copyrighted script in a video. Teachers say they have no money, and the Department of Mental Health is uncooperative, at least for now. I need to get past the volunteer speaker role of a guest educator and get paid for my expertise and story. The video plan saves travel and I can work a day job that has benefits if nothing else. Is there any way to get a sponsor, or whom do I approach in getting my reputable work compensated? I'm for profit, have a book coming out in January and am not affiliated with any school or county department as of yet.
