From Conference to Contest

Today has been exhilarating and busy. I do not know how I have made it through this day. It started with me going to the Craig Duswalt Virtual Conference. The conference was fabulous. I had two days of content-rich and valuable information.

Yesterday we learned about some of the things that we could do to improve our personal and business life. We learned how to stay inspired and motivated, find our gift, and create a legacy to give back. These were three of the things that were important to me.

I felt the first day had so much to offer, but the second day was even more, jammed packed with good information. My interest was becoming an expert speaker, how to set up a membership site and why. There was great thinking outside the box marketing ideas. Several of which I plan on using.

Now I know you want to know why I have not given more details! If I did that, you would have no reason to attend the conference in October. Craig has promised it is a conference we do not want to miss. I have attended four of his live conferences and three of his virtual conferences, and I can promise you, I have learned something I could use each time.

I will post more details as I can get them.

I attended a Toastmasters evaluation and international speech contest in which I was honored to be one of the judges. The contestants were good, making the decision very difficult, but the model speaker stole the show.

The model speaker gives us a five to seven-minute speech, and the evaluators evaluate the speech. The speaker was a Chinese woman raised in Glasgow, Scotland. She gave a very humorous speech about being a Glaswegian. It was fun, and she kept us laughing as she used her Scottish accent and showed us a banana to describe how the citizens of Glasgow explained she could not be a Glaswegian.

She was speaking to us from Glasgow, Scotland, and it was 2:30 in the morning. Wow! How cool was that? Well, that was my day. Now, I will prepare a hot bath and get ready for bed because I have another full day tomorrow. Until then, please stay safe, and keep the faith.
