Personal Mission 101: A Baccalaureate Speech

I was asked to give a high school Baccalaureate Speech this last weekend.

Candidly, although I am called to speak frequently, this was a daunting task. What should I say? What would the audience want to hear? What really matters? Talk about writers block!

I had no choice but to call upon my friends and colleagues on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Buoyed by the strength and intelligence of “the crowd”, I gave the best speech that I could give. Many thanks to all that helped me.

All the best,
