Topic Challenged

When I first started speaking I had no idea what I was going to speak about. I had just met Jim Robbins who is like the grandfather of all the incubators in the Bay Area and saw there was a major need to introduce the business community to this new resource of start-up businesses who needed every kind of assistance.

So I decided to start a presentation at the social organizations called “Incubators are not for Chickens”. The idea of starting a business in an incubator was created in Washington D.C. somewhere around 1990. I met Jim in 1992 and he had just started the first Bay Area entrepreneur at FMC after he was downsized.

Everyone, regardless of your business experience, when you are an entrepreneur, develops a level of success which others appreciate when it is shared. You never know how your experience might inspire another entrepreneur to become more effective in their business.

As the years progressed I added titles based on my experience and what others seemed to want to know.

Topic such as

  • Time Management
  • Speaking
  • Sales Techniques
  • Organizational Skills
  • Increasing Profitability
  • Balance in Business and Family
  • Funding Sources
  • Business Plans

There’s no limit to the type of topics you will be able to speak about. But it is always better if you have a passion about your topic. When you speak with passion, it is obvious in your presentation and people will respond to you with much greater frequency.
