So we’re home after the first MMSL seminar weekend. Overall it went really well, no trouble with flights or accommodations. A mix of attendees who had some prior MMSL knowledge and some with none whatsoever… leading to some shocked looks, uncomfortable chair wiggles and the occasional walk outside for fresh air.
Or as Jennifer put it, “You made Army guys blush!” I didn’t even say the word “pussy”. A well placed use of “clitoris” being a tactical nuclear strike apparently.
More of a grueling trip plus weekend experience than I expected. Totally didn’t expect Colorado’s elevation to make breathing as hard as it was. Simple walking around seemed more like jogging. Constantly worried about drying out my voice too.
Anyway, good first time out, there may or may not be more with the Army in the future, but overall looks like it’s positive potential for the future. If it works great, if not, I’ll be looking to do more of my own events anyway. It’s certainly great to have gotten one under my belt and gone well. It’s a different format than the writing and books. So reworking some stuff and once I’m happy with it, opening the speaking doors for business. Anyway… so… sleepy. More thoughts some other time.
