Who’s your most honest critic?

I’m just finishing a few new talks for our Pacific adventure in the spring.

I’ve found some wonderful material out there – including ready made presentation elements in the public domain.Professional photos Alaska cruise 206 005

As always I pass each PowerPoint presentation to my most honest critic, Kathy, my wife! She tells me what she really thinks – “a bit serious”, or maybe even “10 slides beyond my tolerance threshold”. Or sometimes just “that slide just doesn’t fit”.

Who critiques your talks for you? Unless you get a fresh set of eyes and ears to look them over any inbuilt errors are unlikely to get picked up.

And when we are CRUISING for FREE surely we want to give our best?

Flying High

Of course some folks will CRUISE FREE because they prefer not to fly. Many of us have to fly to reach some of the amazing trips available thanks to SPEAKERS CRUISE FREE.

If you are on a FREE cruise deal where you have to book your own flights beware.

Several airlines are currently in dispute with the online booking engines. Both American and Delta for example have withdrawn their seats from some of these booking engines. Over in Europe Ryanair and Easyjet have done the same thing.

So next time you’re looking for flights to catch a FREE CRUISE make sure you check out the airlines booking sites as well as the big on-line booking services. And include some of the new boys too – like for example.

If you’re not yet cruising free I wonder why? Click HERE now to find out more.

Happy cruising - FREE!!!

Here's a fact...

Tons of books are still sold (through) retail outlets and (to) the 140,000 plus libraries.

And there are lots of places in addition to traditional bookstores where your book will sell.

That's why you should register for this brand new webinar entitled...

I mean this is some of the best free training I've ever put together.

Why am I hosting this new webinar?

To help launch a brand new training called "Real Fast Book Distribution" (RFBD) which is designed to help you sell tons of books in all types of retail and online outlets (not just book stores).

Here's the story...

Recently I teamed with Hay House author Elaine Wilkes PhD author of "Natures Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight".

Of course, being published by a major publisher like Hay House, Elaine expected great things for her book. One of her expectations was that her publisher would place her book in retail stores nationwide.

It never happened... even after multiple requests and extensive poking and prodding.

But Elaine did not give up. She took matters into her own hands.

But because there was little in the way of resources for authors who wanted to sell their books through retailers, Elaine resorted to trial and error and more trial until she figured out how to get any good book into retail stores across the country (even print on demand books).

That's when Elaine realized that other authors surely faced the same problem and she decided to create an extensive training program designed specifically for both self-published and trade-published authors.

Although most of the RFBD program is Elaine's work product (and excellent quality I may add - you can certainly see her PhD talents in play) I have included
a few modules myself.

In any event, you don't want to miss this excellent webinar where Elaine and I take you through the exact steps for writing emails that get retail outlet buyers to buy your book.

Get your place here:

Yes, of course, we will make an offer for the RFBD program but only after we fully deliver on our promise.

Whether you intend to invest in RFBD or not you do not want to miss this great webinar.

Keeping up with the Joneses

image At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES 2011), it has been estimated there are over 100 tablet computers on display. The iPad is no longer the only option – although it may still be outstanding.

There are dozens of amazing 3D TV displays and Logitech is showcasing its Revue device which operates the new Google TV system. It seems like no time since Apple launched their Apple TV.

My point is that we, like Apple, cannot rest on our laurels.

Once we are each approved as cruise line speakers we must keep on top of our game. The SPEAKERS CRUISE FREE network, set up by DANIEL HALL is made up of many of the most able and exciting speakers on the high seas.

Let’s make sure we all keep our topics refreshed and our style enthusiastic. That way SPEAKERS CRUISE FREE will remain the pre-eminent speaker team – the one that the enrichment officers work with from choice.
