Drunk on The Idea of Public Speaking (on the Side)...

All week long I've been basking in the afterglow of speaking at the Tacoma South Rotary Club luncheon on Monday. Public speaking is becoming as much a positive adrenaline rush for me as is writing for a living. I absolutely love inspiring people to step outside their comfort zones and pursue what they really want to do with their lives and talents. 

I'm going to be posting a few 2-3 minutes snippets of public appearances I've made and see if they generate sufficient interest to make public speaking another viable way of making myself known, meeting and greeting new people, and boosting my income in a way that is totally me (as is my writing) and totally energizing to the people who come see me. If I can do that, I would be one happy camper!

What do you think of this idea? 

Would you come out and see me (those of you who haven't already)? 

Would those of you who have seen me speak endorse and encourage others to come see me?

I'd like your feedback.  I'm all ears! Email me at kristine m smith AT msn DOT com (all one word) and let me know! Thanks

Sandra Jerke and me after a Rotary Club presentation I gave today. What fun it was!  And I sold some books, too--AND reconnected with Marika Brink (nee McIlheneay) after 25 years!  What a total treat and surprise!  It seems that more than a quarter of the 30+ people there knew either me or my sister Jackie, so it felt like  reunion. I was very comfortable.

Sharon Uhlig (Third Eye Imaging) videotaped the presentation, and will upload snippets of it to You Tube and let me know when it's done so I can point you to it...

Stay tuned!
