Only 364 days left to gather more business

The little red dot says there are still 364 days of business left this year.


My cousin asked how business was going yesterday, January 1. In hind sight, i wish i hadn’t gone on such a riff giving him so many specifics; maybe a simple, “It’s going really well.”, would have sufficed:

  • One signed Keynote speech contract
  • One Keynote speech contract awaiting signature
  • Two Keynote contracts looking very good
  • A verbal agreement for a 1.5 day engagement, with additional contract layers probable
  • Another client getting closer to a multi-layered cultural transformation engagement
  • And finally, several big, former Disney Institute fans who are seriously interested in working together this year

Riff over.
