I’m sure you’re familiar with the line commonly used when someone is trying to convince someone else that they know the subject in question: “Well, _________ is my middle name.”
Hello. My name is Jackie Setback Bailey.
I know that President Obama likes to use the word “setback” to soften the more appropriate, “failure” at times, but failure in this case isn’t as fitting as SETBACK.
I hoped to have a video of me giving my winning speech. I delivered my speech to a group of Toastmasters this last Tuesday evening, and I asked a member of the club to use my ipad to film me. The film is great, except I believe the cameraman had his hand over the microphone, so there is no sound. Setback.
No worries. I’m presenting my contest winning speech tomorrow morning. (Full disclosure: this is a club I belong to). Details below:
If you can make it, fabulous. If not, I’ll try once again to have it filmed. I really, really want to get your feedback. And I really, really want to start presenting my second speech for audiences as well. I’m working on that.
Stay tuned for a video of my speech.
But wait, there’s more!
Yesterday I interviewed a remarkable young woman who has written a book. Keep in mind, Jennifer Schwartz is still in high school – completing her junior year in a few weeks, and will be a senior next fall. She has written a book based on her own CANCER RESEARCH. Yes, you read that right. She has been doing CANCER RESEARCH.
This is her book. It’s out now on Amazon.com. On Tuesday next week, I’m going to blog about my interview with Jennifer and about her newly published book. Jennifer is a well-spoken, gifted and intelligent young lady who deserves to be recognized for her skills in leadership. She is leading people toward a specific mission, and I’ll tell you all about that on Tuesday. Please tune in.
And while you’re checking out Jennifer’s book, please check out mine too. SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional.
See you all on the other side of the weekend!
