Bristol Palin recently told PEOPLE that being a single mother was financially difficult for her. Well, this should help a little.

Palin, 19, the daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, is set to join the speaker circuit and stands to make between $15,000 and $30,000 per speech, RadarOnline reports.

Palin became an teen-abstinence advocate after giving birth to a son, Tripp, 16 months ago.


"Her teen pregnancy and the birth of her son Tripp resulted in millions of Americans discussing the issues surrounding teen pregnancy," reads her bio at Single Source Speakers. "Bristol has since gone on to become a Teen Ambassador for the Candie's Foundation, and speaks about pregnancy prevention, abstinence, faith and life."



In a PEOPLE cover story a year ago, Palin warned teens about how hard it is to be a mother at a young age. "Girls need to imagine and picture their life with a screaming newborn baby and then think before they have sex," she said. "Think about the consequences."

She said much the same thing in a PSA this year for the Candie's Foundation.
