My book Marketing the Moon, which I wrote with Rich Jurek and with a forward from Gene Cernan, the last man on the moon, has now been out for about a month. The book has gotten off to a terrific... Continue reading

Peter, yes I think that is right. And people like him, so they are willing to help him.

I just finished Michael Lewis’ fantastic new book Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt and enjoyed it immensely. I’ve been a Lewis fan from the beginning. Lewis is about my age and his book Liar’s Poker, which I loved, released... Continue reading

Cheryl, I think your passion should always come first, not SEO considerations. Good luck with your decision making process.

Thank you Adele -- I know you've been thinking about this issue in your own business and, rightly I think, have gone in the opposite direction to me. Thanks Keith!

Doug, thanks for all your support over the past nearly 20 years. Linas, something to consider. Thanks for that. Jack, Yes, it was the right time to retire typewriter dude. Thanks for the vote of confidence on that one. ChallengeThink & Mary - tough decisions, but important ones to ponder... I let mine go like half a decade too long!! Rob - Terrific point. I'm on it. THANKS!

Twelve years ago, I left the corporate world to go independent and live by my wits. And ten years ago I started writing my blog. I made two decisions at the time I wish I hadn’t. I branded myself as... Continue reading

Bill & Raul - It was a fun little example to write up. Thanks for jumping in.
On Wednesday I fly on American Airlines from Boston to San Francisco. I’m going to order my usual: club soda, no ice, with a lime wedge. It's my thing. A little pleasure while in the air. I hope I get... Continue reading

Susan - I've had a few of those sorts of experiences. I think the audience gets behind you if you do your best to make the most of a bad situation.
Gayle, I totally agree. Twenty-five years ago, I got my start in the speaking craft at the "Tokyo Breakfast Toastmasters" - I was a co-founder. I went to every meeting for 5 years (when I wasn't traveling) and it was great to get the fundamentals down.
Richard - Ah, a fine cock up indeed! Thanks for sharing. Keith - voice and breath control is one of mine too. I take some deep breaths prior to going on and if my voice ever rises too much, I know I need to pause and take another deep breath.
Thank you Michael - Glad to hear that you are already doing some of these and that you might have some new things to work on too! Thank you Nick. I totally love what I am doing. It is a gift to have a stage and an audience and I want to do the best that I can.
Back in 2009, I wrote what became one of my most popular blog posts. In Top ten tips for incredibly successful public speaking, I riffed about making the most of your opportunity to deliver a talk. Here are the top... Continue reading

Rick Friesen sent me awesomeness This Is a Generic Brand Video. Considering it has 602,000 views in just a week, perhaps you’ve seen it. But it was new to me. Humor is truth The reason I think this is hysterical... Continue reading

Thank you Stan. In my experience, the "discussions" going on in the healthcare industry and among politicians is misguided. I wish that everyone would agree on the fundamentals of good communication like Dr Natasha and Dr Kate are doing.

Recently, I wrote a post about Dr. Kate Burke, an emergency physician who uses video in her practice, shooting clips for patients at the end of an emergency room visit explaining the treatment and what to do upon getting home.... Continue reading

Thanks Raul. I appreciate it. We all have our own levels of comfort, but to me it is more scary to be at a big firm that can fire you at any moment.

Joanne! Here's to a fellow artist. Keep up the great work. Sean - thanks for referencing my stuff in your talks. I appreciate it. Keep being weird - it will get you far. Rob and Rodney - If you blink you miss me. I'm in the FBI office in the background a few scenes. Longest one is when Amy Adams & Bradley Cooper are walking down a hallway. It's fun, isn't it Rob!

Jim! Awesome. Good to hear about your freakiness. I totally agree that most B2B is boring so good for you for making it not so. Many people forget that it is still people to people even if it is B2B.

Rob - me too! I had a nonspeaking role in American Hustle as an FBI agent. You?

If you are looking for books on the art of speaking, I can highly recommend anything by Nick Morgan who is my personal speaker coach. I'm now reading "Talk like TED" by Carmine Gallo which is excellent.

Beverly - Yes, indeed. Too bad they didn't comment on the post.
Kenny and Rodney - Thanks for sharing your art with us! Rodney, What I did was start by giving away my talks and training for free both live and virtually. As I started to build an audience, I began to charge for the appearances.
