3+ Lessons From Influence11

How do you have it all?  One way is doing all you can and letting go of what you can’t do.

 
 
 
Who am I?  I am a writer, an entrepreneur and a balanced life specialist.  These next five days I will be at Influence11. The National Speakers Association International Conference is held in Anahein, Californina this year.

Have you ever mixed business, vacation and family?  Today’s post shows you one practical way to have it all.  You will learn as I learn.  Twitter will be the vitural classroom.

The tweets will each be a lesson learned from Influence11, traveling with my family or another area of life.

Why?  Because all you can do is all you can do.  The tweets serve as notes for the learning.  The learning serves as the blog material.  The material is waiting for review at any time.

When you do things like this you find that you win.  Today, my wife, five children and balance win.

Making a difference while being paid to talk means adding value to others. Being the REAL you. Having fun. Run it as a business.
