I’m in Phoenix at the annual convention of the National Speakers Association and as you may imagine, there is chatter everywhere and a lot of hugging and kissing. This is a group of positive minded, motivated, energetic individuals who are smiling and happy, truly believing they can change the world.
Isn’t that fantastic? Instead of all the political mumbo jumbo we’ve been hearing and the horrors in the world, here are people all trying to make it better. This is my 36th convention (I know, I know!!!) but these are my people and I love being with them. I still go because I always learn something new and it is stimulating for me.
If any of you out there are thinking about speaking as a career, you should look up your local chapter and visit. It will be a wonderful experience for you.
