Humble yourself to opportunities and you shall receive

Humble yourself to opportunities and you shall receive.

They qualified for my best keynote Speech fee because:

  • It’s in Orlando
  • There are no travel expenses
  • They paid 100% upfront

However, their contracted speaker’s fee was only a third of my best, local price.

And therefore, i wasn’t gonna be a possibility for them, even though they were desperate.

And they were seriously desperate.

Sixty people with plane tickets coming in for the annual conference.

i picked the right thing to do.

Their fee was honored – a price i would never accept normally.

We had less than 24 hours to make this work.

i worked hard to make it work.

They needed a hero.

Knowing this, how could i deny them?
