.... or was I ?
Anyway, I thought I'd update you on how some of my speaking engagements have been going. I posted this summer that I was invited to be the special presenter at our local fair's Ladies Day.
Well before that even happened I spoke at a ladies' church group -- you might say they offered to be my guinea pigs. That went OK, but was DEFINITELY a learning experience. I knew what I wanted to say, I just had WAY TOO MUCH to say. If I had been conducting a weekend seminar, I might have had enough. I heard a lot of "You did really good" (beam)......"for your first time" (ouch). So I did some editing and tweaking and my day at the fair went really well!
Since that time I have had several more bookings and each one seems to go a little bit better. And I'm having fun! And I think the audience is too! Last week I spoke to a great bunch of women from a church in Grand Rapids. They seemed to be excited for their night of junk and even made special "junk" treats for social hour -- a first, but hopefully not a last! It could be that this whole junking thing might just catch on.
Luckily I had my camera with me. Here's their version of "junk" food. Enjoy!
