2 thoughts this time

  1. Visualization is the key to making things happen
  2. Make it easy for someone to do and it will get done

I expand further upon these two thoughts today

PodCamp #9 is less than a week away...

And in case you've been wondering whether PodCamp is for you, here are 5 Reasons why you should join us:

1. If you're an absolute beginner (or nearly so), we have sessions for you.  It's an unconference for everyone, at every stage of the game. 

2. If you have experience or tips to share, your bringing that to the community is what fuels PodCamp.  Help facilitate a session or just schmooze in the hallways.  It's all valuable.

3. Meet others who are on the path with you -- running a business, starting a new one, doing community work, or just learning how to get the word out better.  We're all in this together!

4. Hang out and make friends.  Seriously!  This is an event that has the super-power of attracting the nicest people.  We don't know quite why....we just know it's true.

5. Did we mention the food?  Your ticket price includes coffee in the morning, a delicious healthy lunch and happy hour snacks at our 4:30 gathering at Slainte.  So, no need to pack a lunch, just grab your laptop, a smart phone, tablet or a pad of paper.  Heck, we'll even give you a free water bottle so you can stay hydrated!  (Swag, baby!!)   
Don't be a fool this April 1st...get your ticket now!

PodCamp #9, April 1st from 9am - 4pm at Holyoke Community College.

Your ticket price includes:
Coffee and tea when you arrive
5 Classroom sessions of your choosing
A fabulous, healthy lunch, including gluten-free and dairy-free options
Networking happy hour with munchies sponsored by Cider House Design

Special thanks also go out to WBOA for their third year sponsoring PodCamp.

PodCamp Western Mass is coming April 1 (audio)

Missed a couple of weeks due to some events and last week in particular due to some technical difficulties with the app. I recorded 3 times and the third time was not the charm. It still failed to upload. So I went back to my trusty recording device to get this one complete.

PodCamp Western Mass is coming April 1. The 9th instance of this event is a great thing to do. This is where I go to learn and share and collaborate.
