I THINK I did ok; I will find out later this week

I was really excited about going on stage for the first time this year.  We got there early so I could set up…an it is a good thing I did.  There were a few challenges, but I got most of them worked out.  The only thing that was wrong: my mic…it didn’t work!

So I began my talk LOUDLY….but I could stay loud so long.  The 120 people could hear me ok..but their were times it could have been louder.

I must admit, I didn’t do as well as normal:  I got lost a handful of times and I left a few things out.   Even though I have given this same speech over 500 times, I still get lost!  The good news: nobody know what I am going to say…except for Jill…and she DOES let’s me know.  It’s a good thing I like Jill.

They gave me another standing ovation…and I am grateful for that.  Fortunately, I ended strong…but I am still sad that I didn’t give it my best. I guess it shows me I have to work at EVERY speech that I give; speaking doesn’t just naturally happen for me.  I am blessed each time I talk to an audience.

  1. Gordon,

    Fantastic job last week. I was moved and I know the others in the room were too! Your message will help clients get the paycheck protect they greatly need!

  2. It’s easy to get thrown when the equipment doesn’t work! I bet you did just fine. And I also think that your “imperfection “gives a good idea of what you’re up against, and what you have overcome.
