Another 90 Days: Appearance on The Jeff Large Podcast

Jeff Large, an entrepreneur and leading voice in Podcasting space and a fellow presenter sat at a table with a beer and over the next 48 hours we had genuine conversations about family, business, toys, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and our connections to WordPress. We connected over the weekend, hung out at one another’s talks, after parties, then went our separate ways. We stayed in touch over media channels – until he called on me to appear on his show, the Jeff Large Podcast, “Cherish Life Every Day”, September 20, 2018.

Twitter Chatter: WordCamp Chicago

My return to the very windy, Windy City (after 30+ years) also signaled stepping onstage to speak again, this time at my very first WordCamp.

Twitter Chatter: WordCamp Orange County

Held in the largest room for the WordCamp, the Beach Room was the gateway to the conference, visible to all attendees from the stairs or lift to the second-floor location (see first Tweet below). Large monitors on all sides display messaging, CART services, and slide visuals making a truly immersive experience for my message of hope and motivation.
