Last night I found out that the event I will be speaking at in Chicago next week has sold out, with 300 reservations made. I was also told that I will be the “headliner,” speaking at 7:45pm. It’s shaping up to be quite the event.
My presentation in Milwaukee still has a few seats left, last I heard, so if you act quickly you may be able to get in on that. That is going to be a terrific event as well: different than Chicago, more intimate and in-depth. I have a couple media interviews scheduled too!
I must say though that I’m becoming a nervous wreck over the events! I hope I can meet everyone’s expectations. I’ve spoken to small meetings before, presenting at professional conferences related to my job (not shaving), but nothing on this scale. I asked Brett McKay from Art of Manliness, who has some experience speaking, for advice and he said “over-prepare.”
Do you have any other suggestions?
