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.
Happy New Year to everyone. Go out and make your life changes, but remember you must do them. Take action in your plans. There is greatness within all of you, but it only goes as far as you Act upon it. If you sit on your couch thinking about things, someone will come along and re-possess your couch. Get out there and make your life happen. Start those resolutions and never give up. 70% of the people who start a New Year’s Resolution stop in the first 3 weeks. Don’t be that person. Make a life change and stick with it. For things to change you must change.
Everyone, I am back from Eric Worre’s GoPro Network Marketing Recruiting Mastery Event that took place last week at the Mirage in Las Vegas. We had a wonderful time and an amazing learning experience. In the days to come, I’m going to high light a speaker and share with you what I’ve learned and what knowledge was passed down. Each speaker brought with them ideas and concepts to help us grow and broaden out possibilities.
This was my #6 speech for Toastmasters. As you can see, I didn’t angle the camera correctly and cut my head off. I received a very good evaluation and response from the audience. Please use this information when going out and prospecting or sharing what you have. Don’t just act excited…Be Excited!
This is the Toastmasters Speech I gave on August 25th. The topic is “How We Say It” and titled “Sharing Knowledge”.
I enjoyed the speech and had numerous people brag on it, but I feel I was a bit convoluted and not focused at the beginning. I love speaking and sharing my ideas so I won’t give up and that’s the point of Toastmasters; to help us learn and grow as public speakers.
