Thus my last major "road trip" of 2004 winds down. When BA213 kisses the jetway in Boston in 3 hours, the tally will be: 57 days. 63,000 miles. 8 states. 9 countries. 24 speeches-seminars. 1 happy accountant. (I did squeeze 2 visits home, for 7 days.)
I'm exhausted, but I loved every minute of every speech and interaction with my Clients ... and only hope my enthusiasm for these fascinating times was/is contagious ... from Dubai to Torrey Pines, CA!
(WHAT A LUCKY GUY: I TRULY LOVE WHAT I DO! AND LITERALLY LIVE FOR MY CLIENTS!)
And: Public "Hoorays" to the amazing "BIW" (Best-In-World) band who represent me in the world-at-large: The Washington Speakers Bureau. Alexandria's gang-that-always-shoots-straight and I have been married for 2 decades now! Also, another Roar of Appreciation to our Executive Events Director in Manchester Center, VT ... Abbey Bishop ... who has injected sanity and operational excellence to my recent madness. Plus a "hats off" to you ... BlogCommunity has become my on-the-road-family since I activated the Blog part of this site on 27 July ... 49,000 words or so ago. (Plus comments!) You in turn can Cheer ... Cathy Mosca ... who manages the site's blogging activities and is also responsible, among many other things, for the integrity of my jillion PP presentations.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
