Summer Speaker Series: Forty-Two Speakers in One Month!

Summer Speaker Series: Forty-Two Speakers in One Month!

My colleague and dear friend, Erin Blaskie, is hosting the first annual Summer Speaker Series featuring an amazing line-up of speakers including James Roche, Christina Merkley, Sheri McConnell, Alexis Neely, Allana Pratt, Lou Bortone, Viki Viertel, Lynn Scheurell, Kathie Thomas, Debbie LaChusa, Wendy Weiss, Terri Z, Donna Gunter, Diana Ennen (THAT’S ME) and so, so, so many more.

Here’s the deal... She’s featuring TWO speakers PER DAY for the entire month of August (not including weekends because really, who likes working weekends?) The best part is that this amazing series of speakers is priced VERY affordably. It’s going to be one of the hottest events of the summer.

Simply click through this link and register today. You won’t be disappointed and I’ll be there to speak as well! I’ll be speaking on publicity and marketing … my favorite topics ever!

You can purchase a seat in one track, two tracks or get audio downloads included too (along with your live seat) so what are you waiting for! I’ve heard there is a cap of 200 people due to the bridge line and with the speakers involved, that won’t last long!

Visit and register now... ‘see’ you on the calls!

MomCast Live Interviews Dayna Steele Author - Rock to the Top

We had an awesome show today on MomCast live. For those of you that didn't know, Jill Hart and I do a Blog Talk Radio Show at 12:00 EST on Tuesdays every week.

This week Dayna Steele was on. Dayna is the author of the best-selling business book Rock to the Top: What I Learned about Success from the World’s Greatest Rock Stars. With a forward from legendary rock star Gene Simmons, how can you lose? Here's the link to listen (And you can listen in anytime and also listen to back shows at your convenience.)

She tells us how being an entrepreneur is so much like her radio days of interviewing rock stars. Reach for the stars and never give up. You will be inspired and motivated to not only excel in your current business, but watch out you might end up doing like her and getting ideas about additional businesses as well at all hours of the night. You can't miss her story on how she finally got Gene to write her Foreward. After the show I was definitely left with the "never give up" and "I can do anything I set my mind to frame of mind." Need motivation for your home based business, then listen to the show! You'll get it.

Her book is comical and really informative too. --

Her book is available on Amazon. Rock To The Top - What I Learned About Success From The World's Greatest Rock Stars (Paperback)

On the show we also talked about my interview tomorrow with a local newspaper on saving money on School shopping. My family gets to get featured. Yeah and a photographer is coming out. How cool is that?

And we gave some GREAT PR tips on blogging, social networking, etc. We hope you listen in. You can at any time.

And Jill told about the spectacular contest on her site this month at Prizes daily.
