Well, Don’t Call Me Professor…Yet

Network, network, network. That’s how the world goes ’round these days and so does digging your well before it’s empty. I can’t definitely say networking is what landed me my most recent gig but am guessing it’s responsible for part of it. I have been asked to lecture on travel as part of the local continuing education program here in Charlotte County, Fla.

I don’t have specifics yet and don’t want to release what I do know until I have them but the short of it is I’m very excited for the opportunity to share my experiences with those interested. I’m aiming to focus the lecture on travel in the twenty-first century, how travel has evolved from the last century, the experiences we seek today, how we can share with others while traveling, and my experiences.

I’m hoping to get some travel-type companies on board to supply travel-related/promotional/educational items for the presentation. This will not be a commercial sell. Since this will be sometime in the Fall, I have plenty of time to plan. And since I’ll be attending Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) in June, I’m making it a priority to make some connections for the lecture.

Stay tuned! If you’re a travel-related company wanting to provide your product or product information, drop me a line!
