My name is Davis. In September 2014, I decided to spend a year reaching out to role models I’ve never met. Here’s why.
Update From Previous Weeks:
Last month, I reached out to Mark Earls and asked if he would sign a copy of his book. After a month of getting mail through customs, guess what came in the mail today?
I was pretty happy when I got the package.
This week I wanted to reach out to Scott Berkun – author and public speaker.
A few months ago, a friend of mine recommended me Scott’s book: Confessions of a Public Speaker because she knew that one of my dreams is to be a public speaker.
Since the book was full of funny and sometimes tragic anecdotes from Scott’s career, the book made for an easy read on a sunny summer afternoon road trip from New York to Vermont.
At the end of the book was this request from Scott.
Since I fairly enjoyed the book, I decided to give Scott a hand with his request.
- Write a review on Amazon. Check.
- Recommend the book to friends. Check – I recommended this and a few of my other favorite speaking books to my local toastmasters from this summer.
- Blog about the book. Check – I suppose this post you are reading counts?
Next week I will reach out to Mike Erwin, founder of Team RWB, a nonprofit with over 36,000 members looking to enrich the lives of American veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
