Without a doubt these past two weeks have been very exhausting, eye opening, and rewarding.
Most of the time when I travel for speaking it is a 1-2 day trip, sometimes even there and back in the same day. This month we packed a bunch of presentations into a two week stretch and it taught me a lot.
It made a lot of business sense to do it this way – to visit all the schools in a short period of time collectively on the road, but sometimes things happen that are more important than business.
When planning this two week speaking tour, we planned it around the “due date” of my niece Chloe, so that I would be able to be home to see her be born.
My niece Chloe had plans of her own, and I was devastated at first. [click to continue…]
About a year ago, I sat down to look at the “business” behind public speaking.
I often get asked how I got started speaking, and it all stemmed from one speaking opportunity at Rider University in NJ. (Thanks Nick! If you have attended one of my speaking events, send Nick a quick tweet – because he gave me my first shot!)
After that first presentation, I tell people it just “grew from there” but how did it grow? [click to continue…]
It has been a while since an update post and a lot has been going on!
First off, I hope everyone had a great and safe Halloween, Chelsea and I had a blast:
(Probably our best combo costume of all time…Heisenberg and Jesse Pinkman for anyone who didn’t watch Breaking Bad)
Side note: that is not real blue crystal in Chelsea’s pocket.
Outside of that things have been going very well with the businesses and speaking events!
Speaking of which the next two weeks I’ll be on the road a lot, so if you are in the area make sure to come out. I may have an impromptu meetup in your area, if so, I’ll announce it via email first.
In the next two weeks I’ll be visiting four different Universities in 10 days to speak to students about action based leadership. It is always a ton of fun to connect with students and it’s an honor to be able to speak and hopefully inspire them to action!
Wisconsin – Cardinal Stritch University – Nov 11th.
This will be my first visit back to Wisconsin since I was coaching at MSU back in 2006!
All the credit for this event goes to Hannah Bergland who signed up to be a Student Ambassador and made this entire thing happen.
While in town I’m looking forward to taking both Hannah and one of her friends out to dinner as one of the “perks” of being an SA. This is a closed event only [click to continue…]
