Only one way in and i almost didn’t take it

Trilogy Health Service
While waiting for an Omni Convention Concierge employee to return with the Omni Convention Director’s business card, i scanned Trilogy’s website.

Only one way to get to this place…open the door and walk in.

Michael Jr travels with a camera crew sometimes?

 

Omni Louisville
Best Hotel in town? Maybe.

 

Only one way into the room where laughter from 600 people was emanating.

And i almost didn’t take it.

Business travel is better when it isn’t every week

Business travel is better when it isn’t every week.

It’s that simple.

And it’s perfect when it isn’t every month either.

Too tired to work?

Too tired to work?

Nope.

Work is only work if you’d rather be doing something else.

Actually worked harder than normal in Memphis.

Thought it was possible to run to Arkansas, but it is not.

How did you used to do it?

First AV check

Second AV check

 

Disney Customer Service Speaker
600 people staring at you expecting you to be smart and funny.

 

Disney Customer Service Keynote Speaker
Keeping it simple is extraordinarily taxing because simple is easily dismissed as not valid.

 

First keynote speaking engagement outside of Florida since retiring from 30 incredible years at Disney. Which, by the way, has always been the plan – to be able to leave my driveway (to speak) and return to it the same day, without hopping on a plane.

Don’t know how i used to do it week after week.

Fly all day. AV check. Dinner. Review presentation (again). Sleep.

Wake. Breakfast. Review presentation. First one in the room for another AV check. Facilitate transformational content all day. Last one to leave the room. Dinner. Check email and do admin stuff. Bed.

Often, the above step is repeated several days in a row.

Wake. Maybe a run. Taxi to airport. Fly all day. Maybe home by dinner time. Maybe not.

Not home in time for dinner last night, Friday the 13th.

What makes us incredibly excited to go to work?

Seriously, what?

Hope your answer instantaneously rolls off your tongue.
