Heidi Montag's Mom Starts Motivational Speaking CareerHeidi Montag's mother, Darlene Egelhoff, may have publicly lamented her recent financial struggles, but it seems she's in for a windfall -- if she can get people to buy her as a personal advice guru, that is.

Egelhoff, a former restaurant owner in Montag's hometown of Crested Butte, Colorado, is now advertising motivational speaking engagements on her blog, Metamorphosis of a Mother. The cost? A whopping $5000 a pop.

RadarOnline reports that Egelhoff, who told PEOPLE she had been working as a maid to make ends meet, offers advice on health, fitness, eating disorders, parenting, fear, and depression. Despite the hefty price tag for her appearances, Egelhoff, a devout Christian, is offering her wisdom to church groups for free.
