I love how these come when I am having an “off” day. The flu is happening in MY house and we ALL are sick!!! But this latest praise really said it all:
Gordon’s presentation was not only inspirational, it was entertaining. His story alone is captivating and he tells it in a way that is both somber and humorous. His use of technology was fun and engaging, and he employs strong audience participation. At the end of the presentation we all came away with the foundation of a personal plan to move forward in our own lives whether professionally, personally or both. Gordon was funny, entertaining, serious, engaging – one of the best speakers we’ve had. I highly recommend him.

SECOND in the writing competition!
It sounds cliche but it was an honor to be nominated =)
We were at the Oregon Christian Writers Conference last week. I was going to write about the experience sooner, but my site revisions took longer than normal.
We began at the conference on Monday night and had dinner with the fellow writers. The following 3 mornings, we had a workshop with Dr. Randy Ingermanson on passive marketing–fascinating!
The take-aways from the conference:
- Writers write because they like to write, not because they think they will get rich and famous.
- Jill is an inspirational speaker who wrote a great book, not a writer who also speaks. It turns out that is an important distinction.
