The day just unfolded in the normal way, until…

Lee Cockerell podcast
Listened to this one on Monday’s run to Magic Kingdom.


Voice message while driving to the High School to volunteer my time.

Listened to it while walking from car to meeting.

Sent quick text to acknowledge, and update, the sender.

After the meeting, a new email with additional details.

Sent email to both parties letting them know the meeting was over and i would call in 15 minutes, as soon as i got home (to my office).

Before we hung up, i was confirmed to take the place of a world-class Disney Keynote Speaker for a Montreal conference in two weeks.

  1. Jeff,

    A recent podcast episode of Lee’s discussed his need to step back from his speaking schedule, and I immediately wondered if he engaged you to assist. What an honor to be thought of by Lee, but also what a blessing that you could assist him.

    Have an amazing day,


  2. Brian, it was a huge surprise. You never see this coming. Humbled beyond belief. And at the same time, reminded how critical it is to build a brand that’s defined by excellence, passion, and consistency.
