What a wonderful day I’ve had today. Spent most of it in the studio with my friend Rowell Gormon and then visited with Rowell and two other good friends, Donovan Corneetz and Adam Creighton over dinner. Sadly I neglected to bring my camera to document the day (thought about it 60 miles too late) but can’t help at least leaving links and a few thoughts here.
Donovan and Adam are two of the brightest marketing minds I know, so I always learn something valuable when I interact with them. This was my first time to meet Adam in person. Donovan and I have spent many excellent hours together. Some of them in North Carolina where we both live. Some in Los Angeles and Las Vegas at various conventions and seminars. And Rowell is a guy who has forgotten more about acting and voiceover than I’m ever likely to learn.
To top it off, as I drove back to Charlotte in the evening, I was able to listen to a truly fabulous tele-seminar led by Dan O’Day on the subject of getting things done. This was a bonus class added to the month long series of tele-seminars Harlan Hogan and Dan O’Day are holding this month. (The class is closed now.) The focus of this bonus session was on Getting Things Done. This tele-class was so useful and valuable I truly cannot imagine how my time could have been better spent. It was, without a doubt, the most valuable set of things I’ve ever learned from Dan O’Day and given that he’s been part of 13 years of my professional growth and development, that’s saying a lot. If you ever get a chance to hear Dan speak on this subject, don’t missing it. Seriously.
Maybe if Dan gets enough email, he could be persuaded to make the MP3 of this tele-class available for purchase? I don’t know. But, if he does, grab it. Yes, it’s that good. I’m going to listen to the whole thing again tomorrow and since I won’t be driving this time I’ll be able to take notes. There will be lots of them.
