Good Authoring Day to YOU
This is a writing weekend for me. Clients’ books to move forward. And, getting ready for Speaking Unplugged. Are you coming? It’s the only session this year.
The clock is on the tick-tock cycle and early bird went bye-bye. Dr. Judith Briles Speaking Unplugged has only 2 spots left—is one yours? Starts in TWO WEEKS. Space is limited, so check it and COMMIT! http://bit.ly/SpeakingUnplugged2021
Which brings me to my #Caturday post. Have you ever said a “yes” to something or been pulled into doing something that you would rather not. NO is a powerful word that keeps you focused … and puts great value on anything that you nod your head to. Think about it.
That’s my past week … how about you … what are you up to?
