I video’ed his speeches and sent him the links to them as I know how much it helps to see oneself. I felt a faint stir in my bones, one I recognized as the wish that I was the one working on my speeches for Cincinnatti.
To be honest, I thought my speech, “I Love You” was as good as his (though my presentation needed a lot of work) and I would have loved to be on the District stage with him. I would have loved the challenge of putting together a second speech as well. But alas! I may just have a life-changing career instead!!!!!! I look forward to watching him via the internet at the finals. He has worked very hard to get here.
I have been tooling around with my humorous speech- one that was written by accident when I was working with Rich Hopkins. I wasn’t going to compete but come ON! Who am I KIDDING?????? It’s written already so what the hell. My membership to World Champion’s Edge runs out in one month so I am going to fire it off to them for a $50 evaluation from a Champ. I think I’m going to let my membership lapse after that. I think it was a good investment for the year however.
Spent last week camping with my family so I worked on NOTHING all week. In fact I read 2 full novels and 3 National Geographics. it was awesome. But we’re back to the grindstone this week. Lots of work to do. I still have to register Head Start as a business, finish curriculum, website, get business cards made, a banner, supplies, talk about advertising etc. SO! Even though a part of me wished I was working on my World Championship speech last night, I was thoroughly satisfied that I am stepping into my future in the right place and time. I am happy.
