You might have received our out of office reply on Tuesday that let you know we were “away from our desks”. We were actually lucky enough to receive tickets to the Get Motivated seminar, which claims to be “an action-packed, fun-filled, explosive, exciting, inspiring, skill-building business event that is world famous for its mega-watt superstar speakers and spectacular stage production.” We have to say that between the fireworks, confetti drops, and speakers like former NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, former Secretary of State General Colin Powell, and former First Lady Barbara Bush, it was definitely explosive and action packed!
Our personal favorites ranged from General Powell, who is obviously known to be a great speaker, to unknown James Smith, whose shock-and- awe style had us in tears with laughter. But we also sat through a sales pitch that went a little far before the lunch break. After a few minutes, they lost our attention and we started making infomercial jokes, laughing to ourselves.
Motivational was not an adjective that would have described them all. Laura Bush discussed 9-11, Rudy Giuliani spoke about the reading initiative program, but the unknowns really got your blood pumping and gave motivation in the bucketfuls.
We have heard both sides from others who attended. Some say it was unbelievable and they are so glad they went, while others didn’t quite get why the event even exists. All we can say is the gals at Licenses, Etc. have always been motivated and always will be motivated to find ways to help our clients achieve their goals! As always, call us and we will help you get motivated to start a business, obtain your license, and market your business.
