Video Interview at The Idea Camp

Some of you may have never seen me before. Below is an interview I did with Charles Lee at The Idea Camp in February. Included in the interview is an overview of my first book (which I’m working on hard the next few weeks).

The Idea Camp

ideacampbloglg2I’m leaving now to head to the airport for my trip to Orange County.  I can not wait to hang out with so many friends and meet new ones. The Idea Camp is sure to be a great experience and I believe, a breakthrough for a new way of doing conferences. Charles Lee is a friend and a true innovator. I’m honored to be speaking at his gathering. See you soon California!

New Year

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and would like to wish you a Happy New Year. We left 12/26 to go to visit family in South Carolina. I went to NewSpring Greenville on Sunday (more about that later). We travel today to Asheville, NC to visit more family. I hope we see some snow!

Also, today is my 13th wedding anniversary. WOW – time flies!
