Hello Giants,

What an awesome TweetChat yesterday! I appreciated the variety of input and ideas everyone shared.

One thing we didn't have time to mention is that I'm contributing proceeds from every book sold to deserving nonprofits.

I want to make that available to all of you - if you are connected with a nonprofit that might be interested in being sponsored, please let me know.

(When I say "connected" I mean you can put me in touch with the executive director, a development director, marketing director...or someone who knows them.)

Please let me know if you have any questions. Let's help some people and causes that deserve it! For more information you can email me at david@trailblazeinc.com or check out: http://trailblazeinc.com/seven-things-resources/

Take care and have a wonderful day!

Great comments :)  One of my own principles is that slides are not the program. Slides are there to augment my presentation, but the actual program is me and the participants. If the projector goes down, we lost some icing, but we still have the cake. Have a great day everyone!

It's only Friday afternoon here, but the ruminations are still warranted and appreciated! :)

My pleasure, David.  Anyone who still has the presence of mind to use the word "ruminations" on a Friday afternoon, gets two thumbs up from me!
