I got such great news today. I just have to share it!!!!
I received an OK from the President of the University for a FULL conference in my profession at a leading university!!!
Two years ago I wrote that I was goign to put on a conference in my profession. I love developing educational courses and designing short term continuing education events. I didn’t know exactly how it would happen but I wrote down the date. When the original date came and nothing happened I just moved the date up two years. i figured it would happen when it was right. I made it a public document. Then I went about doing my life and professional work.
Well I went to a conference that an associate told me about. I enjoyed it so much and gave it 300% of my time and attention and at the end of the event I got asked to present the next year. I was so honored and thankful. That was fantastic. Within two weeks I was invivted by the University to do a collection of presentations. That was even better!!!
I misunderstood what they were asking for and I wrote up an entire conference proposal. I got told that they wanted ‘only a day and a half’ of the time I had proposed. Generally I would have been disappointed after weeks of l-o-n-g hours writing up the proposal but not this time. I just let the event play itself out to completion and was highly thankful for what I was receiving. Hey I was thrilled, I was going to present multiple times at a national university conference in my subject area. I was thankful and excited.
Then the president of the university saw the proposal and HE suggested that we discuss the possibility of me doing a full conference on the entire materials I had first proposed.
Guess what !?! Instead of doing ONE conference I am now going to do TWO within three months for a MAJOR university!!!! I am dancing on the roof. The chance to be a part of a conference is an honor. To get paid to present is even much better. NOW I get to set my price for ALL those attending and the university is goign to pick up the tab for all expenses and I get the conference fees as well as sell my book AND follow-up courses. The university faculty WANT to teach at the conference – get this the PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY wants to be involved and teach!!!!!! THE PRESIDENT!!!!!
Now that I have developed the conference proposal and hold the copyright to it. I now can go out and solicit other universities and community colleges to do the same continuing education program conference with them. The hardest job of developing the proposal and figuring out all the details is now done. My work has paid off BIG HUGE TIME. I just have to adapt it and personalize it to the particular university or community college I am targeting to. This will generate more income and more professional exposure for me and the others that will be teaching with me. The best part is how many people we will be able to help personally and help them help others. That is the best part of all.
YEA instead of getting one rabbit I just got TWO Rabbits and I think there will be many baby bunnies hopping around long before Easter.
God is so good, I can’t thank the Almighty enough.
