How you pay yourself is more function of accounting tahn anything else (1099 vs Sched C vs…) and your accountant should let you know what’s best and what’s legal.
How much, on the other hand is a trickier thing – I have paid spokespersons anywhere from $0 to $50 an hour and have charged more when I have done it (voiceover work) – Where you are and how much they want you vs someone else will dictate the rate more than other factors (you said you are a subject matter expert – that’s gotta be worth a premium compared to just a talking head). Also, you can charge more in places like NY, LA, Atlanta, Chicago, etc… than you can in Potty Bluff Iowa – Depends on what the market will bear.
