So many things going on. Dad’s been fighting cancer and my wife is working in Pennsylvania. I’m not longer at Camping World, but with this change I’m splitting my time with Kentucky and Pennsylvania. This has allowed me to focus on my resell business and my Ebay store.
Here is the link and I hope you find something you like.
Honestly, I just let the time fly by. So much has happened in the past year. I got married to lovely lady, Gretchen. My son graduated from High School and has gone onto Murray University. He’s doing well and it’s been an interesting change for the family. But, a good change. My daughter is working full-time and is getting ready to move out on her own.
But why has it been so long? A combination of things distracted me to say the least. The biggest situation has been the diagnosis on my father; Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Sadly, it’s hit him pretty hard and it’s been my job to take care of him. I don’t mind, but it does require me to change some priorities. Such is life. He’s staying positive and does his treatments a couple of times a month and it’s noticeably taking it’s toll on his body.
What I ran into felt like a waking dream. I just didn’t realize how much time was passing from my last post to now. I would check my site and just didn’t notice it had been Sept of 2016 for my last post. However, things are back in motion.
This has been a big change. How big? Recently, my wife has moved to Pennsylvania and I’ve been spending time up there. This has caused me to separate from my full time job to help take care of Dad and be able to spend time up there with her. I’ve been fortunate in this change and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
This is my first Silver level Toastmasters Impromptu speech. Before the speech, I choose 5 different topics I have experience with and write them down on paper. At random, my evaluator picks out one for me to give a 5-7 minute talk on.
Training and practice in impromptu speaking builds your confidence and expands your abilities as an effective communicator. Look for opportunities to get experience in this area so you will be better able to express your ideas in the various meetings, sessions, classes, clubs, and conferences in which you participate.
The topic is Podcasting and this is a quick overview of why I enjoy listening to podcasts.
This is my Toastmasters Professional Speaker Seminar speech.
Today, I ask that you suspend disbelief and image you are avid game players. You love to learn new things and how to associate those skills with life.
Steve Brown has been a gamesman for most of his life and 16 years ago he discovered something; a new love that changed his thinking and his way of life.
Steve has spent many hours; days and nights circled with other players, listened to hours of instructions, read numerous books and shared his knowledge and skills with new and old players alike.
Today he is here to share a small portion of what he’s learned with you.
He wants you to know; America’s Game.
