Busy week



Whew!

Sorry I haven't been around much. In the middle of the week, I went out of town to a great conference for women entrepreneurs, sponsored by Entrepreneur magazine and American Express.

The highlight of the day was the opportunity to pitch my business to an editor of Entrepreneur magazine - for five minutes! Talk about a concise presentation. It was a little frustrating that we didn't get pitching guidelines until we were lined up in front of the room - maybe sending out something by e-mail would have allowed people to prepare better.

Still, I love nothing more than to talk about my business and how public speaking training benefits just about everyone, so you have to imagine that the pitch was not too scary for me. I did spend more hours than I will admit to working on my press kit, and that took up the early part of the week.

Today, I had the great honor of giving the keynote address, as well as presenting a seminar, at the annual PowerTalk conference, hosted by Toastmaster Clubs and Santa Barbara City College. I had been working on this keynote for months, but as I like to save the serious prep for the last day or two (want to keep things fresh!), I didn't get down to the nitty gritty until this week. And I didn't really finish the keynote and give it some serious rehearsal time until after I came back from the conference - Thursday/Friday.

So it's been a fabulous and exhausting week. I enjoyed meeting so many new people and sharing the love of public speaking! More on both of these events in posts to follow.
