Just returned from a speaking engagement and two day road trip. Every time I venture out, I expect great things and am rarely disappointed!
Attendance at the event was incredible and it was all done first class. The hosts also had a wonderful gift for me, a bag of goodies, and fed me quite well - even catered to my weird 'vegan' lifestyle. I was the wrap-up speaker, so really had to call upon my spunky, redheaded attitude to send the women out the door fired up and ready to tackle the world!
In addition to networking - everyone picked up a bookmark, business card or brochure from my table - I pre-sold books and built on my mailing list. I think the greatest nugget came from the other keynote speaker, Lifestyle Realist Andy Core. He and I had several opportunities to speak and he gave me numerous valuable tips! (We also discussed our Arkansas experiences, as he lives in Fayetteville, AR and I used to live in N. Little Rock, AR.) Considering his success, I was also quite impressed with his down to earth attitude - if I'd met him on the street, I would've had no idea he was a top notch speaker. (Visit Andy at Andy Core )
This weekend was a big success, but even dud events hold opportunities, and I approach every one with an attitude of expectation! Do you?
