How do you start writing for your seminar. Most important is to think from the audience point of view. How do they listen, what do they want to listen to and what do they want to have achieved the moment they leave.

Then look at yourself, what do you want to tell, what do you want them to know the moment they step out of the door.

It’s very important to think about these two point of views. If they don’t mix well, believe me, your audience will leave, maybe not physical but mentally for sure. And you will not …

The First of Many

I have my first seminar booked, and ready to go. In a couple of weeks I am allowed to talk about my situation and try to inspire others to reach out for the stars for around 75 people.

The Struggle

Before starting this journey. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I saw speakers with limitations but the limitations didn’t stop them from accomplishing their life goals. It motivated me to break free.

After I set my goals, I had to go into the details, which for one was doing research about great expat medical insurances, which would cover me if any problems occur. Finding the right health insurance was both difficult as easy, because of my own limitations. I will go deeper into this subject in a later post as this is quite interesting and …
