Speaking topics

Each presentation that Sandy gives is uniquely crafted to each audience. Standard speaking topics range from small business and entrepreneurship to financial literacy, credit score improvement, and money mindset.


General Financial Literacy

Everyone thinks that they’re pretty educated about money, but we learn from our family and friends who might not have the best money habits. This presentation covers general personal finance topics that everyone needs to know. From what makes up your credit score, to saving for retirement, to home buying, this gets everyone started on the road to financial success.

Managing Your Finances in College and Beyond

Learning good financial habits in your youth can transform your relationship with money for a lifetime. Teaching college students all about money before they get out of school so that they begin their lives on the right financial footing is the goal of this presentation.

The S.M.A.R.T. Way to Getting Out of Debt

In 2014 Yahoo! Finance named Sandy’s getting out of debt story one of the “Most Inspiring Money Wins” of the year. Why? She  applied the Human Resources principle of setting S.M.A.R.T. goals to her debt repayment strategy and repaid over $50K in less than two years through a volatile period of employment.

Stepping Into Entrepreneurship

Sandy has been a serial entrepreneur since she started selling candy in school at age 14. She holds an MBA in Management with a concentration in Small Business/Entrepreneurship and loves teaching potential entrepreneurs how to begin their businesses.

Here we explore the mindset of entrepreneurs, their struggles and profiles on the fastest growing demographic of entrepreneurs. This lecture is a condensed version of Sandy’s six-week entrepreneurship class, The Small Business Incubator.

Starting Your Amazon Side Hustle

After successfully implementing a side hustle by creating an Amazon business (Sandy  sold over $20K worth of products in December on a part-time basis) she has created a course teaching others how to do the same.

You can bring a nearly 2-hour version of her six-week class to your own venue. The class covers everything from registering your business to item listing requirements to sourcing products to scams that new sellers should be aware of.

Side Hustling Your Way to Financial Freedom

Known as the Side Hustle Queen, Sandy leads a group of over 12,000 side hustlers on Facebook. In this presentation, Sandy shows just how easily extra money can be made through side hustling. She shares some of the most popular and current side hustles today. After attending this high energy presentation, your audience will leave empowered to try at least one of the side hustles mentioned.

Sandy Smith is a dynamic and prolific public speaker. She captivates and engages the audience through her energetic storytelling.

Her knowledge encompasses personal finance, entrepreneurship, and career building.
