It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech. ~Mark Twain
Truer words were never spoken! It took me longer to put together the 6 minute slide deck for TEDxRochester than it did to prepare for any of the other talks I gave in 2010.
The good news is that it did get done and I think the presentation went off without a hitch. I also promised the slides would become available in the Fedora Project wiki in case you’d like to give an encore performance or build it into something bigger and better.
In the TED tradition, the presentations are also available for viewing in case you couldn’t make the event.
Sometimes is hard to tell if I'm a high-tech entrepreneur or if I'm a housewife from a different time.
I've been experimenting with websites & online businesses since 1998. I bootstrapped my First eCommerce mail order company in 2001 and a second in 2003 growing that business to nearly $100,000 in gross revenue in it's first full year of operation.
Now, I'm rehabilitating an old house in the wilds of Michigan. Still quite active in Small Business counseling, but spending a little more time on home and family. Come along as I dabble in all the things a Twenty-First Century woman does in a busy week.
