# 1 on the BLOG list…

I had an idea.  What if I looked at the 37 Blog Post Ideas I got from Andrea Sullenger and picked one idea to write about?  Let us see how it goes.

First on the list: What idea that triggered your start?

That’s easy: I had a stroke.

After people learned about what had happened, they all wanted to meet with me when I came back. The problem was that I came back too soon.  I would walk into a meeting, with Jill by my side, and I couldn’t say anything.  I knew what I wanted to say, but it wouldn’t come out.

Then, I had a plan.  I would practice BEFORE the meeting and I felt I really understood the meeting before I arrived.  But when I arrived, the same thing would happen.  I would get stuck after 1 quick sentence.  I couldn’t even get out the information I had practiced.

Then I had another great idea: I would be part of The Olsen Group’s Team.  It seemed like a good idea, but really, I still couldn’t talk.  Jill would fill in where I couldn’t.  It turned out to be Jill 90%, Me 10%!

I had tried it for two years. What could I do?  Stay with the Olsen Group and get paid for something Jill did?

During all this, I was going to deliver a speech to my friends who had helped us though this ordeal.  I practiced the speech for 8 months before I was able to deliver it. Then the night came.  When I was done, the audience stood and applauded!  I couldn’t believe it; each person was moved in a different way.  The response: Tell this story to EVERYONE!

So, you have my 80 friends to thank!

We were featured on the Radio!

KKPZ featured Jill Viggiano on their recent radio program!  Did you hear it?

If you didn’t to listen, KKPZ gave us a link to the program so more people could hear our talk.  Actually, the talk was mostly Jill speaking.  I had trouble getting my words out!  If you listen closely, you MAY hear me mutter a few things.

When you listen to it, send me a note (back to this blog page) and let me know what you thought of it.  Was it too long, too short, was there good info on it, etc.
