55: Scheduling your life away (should you allow people to book your time?)

I am recording this the day after the 4th of July holiday here in the US, which is pretty much my favorite time of year to be in my home state of MN. My wife, some family members and I entered a decorated pontoon boat into a boat parade, and we ended up winning the whole thing.

Rather than celebrate all night, I did the responsible thing and played the role of sober cab. I had meetings early the next day.

Now why did I have meetings the next day? Because I’m stupid. And actually, there’s another reason, and that is the topic of today’s podcast.

But before we get to that story, I wanted to provide another update. This is about the effectiveness of telling stories in presentations and in general. Well, that worked, as my speech in Estonia was one of the top talks of the entire conference. This was a big stage at an international conference, and things went great. I owe it all to telling better stories and improving on my flaws. Talk about a nice shot in the arm.

This and many of the projects I have been talking about in recent episodes has really been paying off for my business. And it will hopefully soon start paying off in other places too.
