Iron Gates can do two things. They can keep people out or welcome people in. Are you letting people in or are you preventing them from coming to you? Are you being an open and honest blogger or are you just in it to make some quick cash?
Today started Business Optimization Week. I haven’t posted much about this and I really should have. I am doing a little freelancing as a blog manager, designer, all around Mr. Fix-it. I was introduced to Stacey Hylen (@StaceyHylen), the creator of Business Optimization Week through my friendship with Ed (@EdGerety) and Suzanne Gerety (@SuzanneGerety). I’ve been helping Ed with his blog: Ed Gerety’s Dream Big Blog. Because of that friendship and connection I was suggested as someone who could help Stacey create her site for Business Optimization Week. If I was closed off like an Iron Gate then I would not have had this awesome opportunity.
So, Business Optimization Week started today, it is a fantastic program with high quality speakers. You can listen for free, which is cool. But even better are the Recordings Packages and Implementation Packages. With these you can download the MP3 of each teleconference call. That is a total of 15 1 hour calls with tons of motivation, inspiration and excitement which is so worth it for you to get started with your own programs. I don’t have any affiliate links to this program, I’ve been listening to the free program myself and I think that you are missing out if you don’t at least catch one of these speakers.
On the home front I learned very sad news today. One of my former students, Marine Capt. Kyle VanDeGiesen died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan today. Kyle was also from my town and he was a star quarterback for the North Attleboro High School football team. He was also the first quarterback of the newly formed Saint Anselm College Football team. I knew Kyle when he was a student in my Residence Hall. Kyle was one determined guy who wanted to be a Marine and wanted to fly helicopters. He accomplished both. My heart goes out to his family and friends during this tragic day of loss. May he rest in peace.
