ABOUT TODAY’S SHOW:
Today I am inspired and I want YOU to be inspired as well.
As I was perusing Facebook, enjoying one of the many fascinating stories on video that pop up in my feed, it occurred to me that there are people making a difference everywhere. Rather than interview a guest on today’s episode, I’ll be sharing three stories that inspired me this morning and what you can take away from them for getting started with your next “big thing.”
Heading into Thanksgiving week here, people’s thoughts are turning to what they are grateful for. I am so grateful for the work I get to do and the people I get to help spread their messages on stage, in books, and beyond.
The stories in this episode include:
- Lya Battle’s amazing free-range dog rescue, shelter, and forever home sanctuary called Territorio de Zaguates (Land of the Mutts and Strays). See more about them here.
- Adventurous Life – something on my own list of what I would like to do just as soon as my younger daughter is off to college in a few short years, working abroad for a month at a time while in community with other 40+ folks. Founded by two friends and colleagues, one of whom has been a client of mine in the past. Read about it and discover their 2019 trips here.
- A family member who needed a change for years, and finally is getting it!
In the second half of the episode you’ll hear all about getting started speaking, ways to make money speaking, and the kind of people who do great with speaking as a way to earn an income. Here are a few helpful links for that:
