I have in my in-box a fabulous new blog post from my partner-in-crime, Karen Ehman, but I’m going to make you wait in suspense until next week while I do some updates. As we say in the South, come back now ya’ll, ya hear?
She Speaks–Big news! She Speaks registration will be opening soon. If you haven’t been, you just have to make plans to join us. I know I’m prejudiced because I love my Proverbs 31 sisters so much, but it’s honestly one of the very best conferences I’ve ever attended. You will receive not only a head-spinning amount of information about every aspect of speaking and writing ministry but also the most heart-expanding spiritual retreat you’ve ever experienced. I promise. Any former attendees care to testify?
You can go now and see all the breakout sessions that will be offered this year so that you can plan ahead. The best thing to do is to go ahead and subscribe to the blog. There aren’t posts all year long, but it will guarantee that you are alerted when registration begins. It should be within the next week or two. If you plan to attend, you need to go ahead and register so that you don’t end up on a waiting list 200 women long (seriously). We’d be so sad to miss you!
Social Networking–If any of you have already joined us on Twitter or Facebook, you know that we’ve done pretty minimal posting. That’s changing! We’ll have regular posts at least once a work-day with encouraging scripture, inspirational quotes, helpful tips and fabulous outside resources. We’ll also pop in a couple times a week with extra insights. You can join us on Twitter @nextstepspeaker or on Facebook by clicking on the box to the right.
Entering the Current Century–One of my clients couldn’t believe that she actually had to find a stamp and write a check for our services. I know. I know. We’re dinosaurs. Soon we’ll have PayPal on our website for your convenience. We will also be adding quarterly conference calls to allow you to receive some of the same teaching that we’re offering our individual clients. Karen and I are so excited to get to know even more of you!
A Request–If you’ve enjoyed our weekly speaker tips on our blog, would you be willing to share and recommend us to your friends who speak or teach? We are so thankful for each one of you, and we’d love to add to our speaker-girl community. Since you know that Karen’s post for next week is something to look forward to, now is a terrific time.
Any other questions?–I think I’m caught up on the questions that have been submitted so far. Do you have any pressing questions about speaking or ministry that you’d like to have addressed on the blog? Please submit them as a comment, and we’ll be sure to get to yours in the coming weeks.
Thank you for all your love and support, speaker-girls. I love doing Kingdom building with you!
