I had a call with another connection from LinkedIn. She specializes in training people to give effective speeches. Our client base is CEOs and other successfully folks who can afford her. And she started out as a stage director for professional opera companies. It was an interesting conversation.
She suggested a couple of people I should speak with and permission to drop her name to help with introductions which was very kind of her.
I finished up my packing for my flight tomorrow. I successfully got up at 4:30am this morning as I adjust my sleep schedule for Central time.
