8 Great, Strange and Motivating Photos from New York City!

8 Great, Strange and Motivating Photos from New York City!

While being in New York City this week, I encountered situations that motivated me, filled me with hope and reminded me of why I do what I do!

The above picture is a sample appetizer from the restaurant I ate at that blew my mind. Not only was it one of the nicest restaurants I have ever enjoyed (I had a glass of wine from 1960) it was the conversation I got to have with the person I ate with that made it so grand!

My view before I walked into my first meeting with my Publisher!

My view before I walked into my first meeting with my Publisher, McGraw-Hill! Two years ago if you would have told me I would have a book coming out, I would have thought you were crazy! Jeremey Donovan, the co-author of this book, and I are so thrilled to have it come out and share it with you!

Is that Orlando Bloom? Why yes, yes it is! He was out signing autographs before his show that night!

This photo really made me happy to be an American.

Although this photo has a lot going on, this photo truly made me happy to be an American. You can make a statement with your voice, your pen or even your body! 

 

How many things can you find wrong about this photo?

Planning out next year out on a cake box!

Planning our next year out on a cake box! Chelsea and I started talking about what we want to do after the tour and where we will be. We had no paper, a cheap pen and a empty cake box to start planning. If you want to do something, start right now and don’t make excuses. 

 

I visited the school that didn't let me in their grad program.

I visited Columbia University. I applied to their master’s program but they didn’t accept me this time. It was good to visit to see if I really wanted to do this program and if the college was right for me. 

I had ups and downs on this trip to New York City. The people I met, the memories I made and the stories I get to keep made it one of my best trips to the big city to date! Looking forward to being back in the Big Apple again soon.

How to Be a Speaker: Take photos of your next trip and pick the best eight. Create a story out of those photos and share them with your friends, followers or family. This will help you remember what you experienced, help you become a stronger storyteller and have an online journal of your favorite memories.
