The "Added Value" product...

Hello all again, just thought of another question that I am sure there are multiple opinions on but just wanted to get an idea of if I am headed down the right path.If you are a professional speaker and you bring something to the table (book, DVD set, ebook, takeaway) that adds value to your presentation, do you charge for it and, if so, how much?Backstory….I have two topics that I can speak about - one is for teens (high school and college students) which encourages them to use education as a…See More

Getting back to it...

Posted on November 12, 2012 at 9:22pm 1 Comment

Sorry for the delay and the lapse in being away from 48days.net.  I've been studying for my comprehensive exams that were this past weekend for my masters degree in education.  I'm not good at counting chickens but I think I did well enough to pass.

I plan to be a lot more visible on the site in the coming weeks and hopefully I can answer some questions other members have as well as have some of my own answered.

Anyway, short blog entry, but I will post more in the coming…

Hello all at 48days.net - I hope that things are going well for you.

I am very early in my quest to become a speaker in the education industry and I am very close to launching a product which I believe can be life-changing for high school and college students.  It's a "Success Manual" geared towards using one's education to accomplish career goals.  I believe too often we are forced into thinking that school is an obstacle to our future and we just try to get through it so we can do…

Hey Bill,

 

So glad you’re here, it’s always great to welcome someone who is interested in pursuing the life they were born to live.

If you haven’t already noticed, this is a great community of people interested in growing in the most important areas of life, and to help others do the same. One of the quickest ways to get connected and begin growing and sharing is through the Discussion Groups.

I host the Lifestyles of the ExceptionZ Group, where we discuss, inspire, and encourage each other in being Exceptional in all of the most important areas of our lives. We would love to have you join the conversations there and continue your journey along with us.

I also noticed that you are interested in Speaking. You will definitely want to get involved in Kent Julian's Speak It Forward Group, there are a ton of great discussions always going on there.

Again, Welcome to the community, I can’t wait to gain from your insights, and get to know you better also.

 

Blessings,

Randell Mark Olson
