On the train to Philly, early on a July morning… going with deep reluctance to a “convention” of public speakers. I do absolutely zero to promote or publicize my talks, except have a web site. No agent, no support team (except the endlessly amazing Hilary)… no plans and no goals. It’s working like a charm… some 25 talks a year for what seem to me to be astronomical fees. But the pros all tell me that I could double everything, with a little work and some common sense.
I tend to think, So what. But apart from the lovely money, I am a true believer (0bviously) in this YNY message, and feel I “owe” it and the movement it has spurred a touch more seriousness. Gotta CONNECT, as I tell everyone else. So here I am on the train to Philly… to a hotel… to a name badge… to a lot of passionate talks about this and that. Old dogs, man… new tricks. We’ll see
