Wise Words for Smart Teens
"You never know why you meet the people that you meet but there is a reason everyone crosses our path. Simply meeting someone new opens up the possibility to gain knowledge and perspective that you didn't have before because they are broadening your worldview" Carrie Perrien Smith
I attended the "Get Paid to Speak By Next Week" Champ Camp in Calgary August 9-11, 2008 and the Edge Summit on Tuesday the 12th. This was an excellent opportunity to learn more about the public speaking business and because I attended the Champ Camp in PHX '07 I was able to secure and excellent repeat rate. I learned even more from the Champs this year. It is also a wonderful way to meet and connect with others who are also interested in public speaking - and the business side.
See all the HAPPY WCPS and the CHAMP CHAMPERS above - Carrie took the photo - she is also a photographer - so much talent!! Carrie Perrien Smith's contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Another bonus was having Carrie Perrien Smith share her insights about her Pubishing/Public Speaking company - Soar Higher with Eagles - here is the link to Carrie's site - http://www.soarhigher.com/
Many of us also want to publish books and Carrie went through a mind mapping exercize and she asked for a volunteer - and I gave ideas about the book I am hoping to publish - The Little Wanderers Home.
As a thank you for participating Carrie gave me this book Wise Words for Smart Teens - she signed it - "You are going to make a great impact with your story" - "Can;t wait to see it"! Carrie -
As a single mom of a TWEEN I can certainly use all the help and advice I can get!
I wanted to share with YOU how you can find a copy - and a sneak preview of the first three chapters is below!!
