A few months ago, while we were working together, my amazeballs client Bryce Longton submitted a seminar proposal to SXSW for 2011. DIY Online Workshops: Best Practices and Worst Mistakes was gonna focus on “the ins and outs of starting your own online workshop/class/seminar — how to market it, what to charge for it, and how to make a super-charged kick ass course that people will want to take.” I knew it was a dream come true for her (she’s a gorgeous, smart, pro-active chica who’s passionate about technology and how it can improve our lives), and I was a proud lil’ coach.
About two weeks ago, she asked to interview me all about The Declaration of You to include in her presentation, and we got a drinks date on the books to make it happen. So imagine my fall-over-ness when she emailed me last Friday and told me that SXSW approved of her having a co-presenter, and she asked if I would do the honors! I immediately started freaking out and crunching numbers, and gave her an official “YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU” this past Monday!
So, if you were thinking of going to SXSW this year, here’s a good excuse (and yes, Interactive badges are still available!). If you’re already going, then please let me know by leaving a comment and/or tweetin’ me (I’d love to meet you!) and head on over to our presentation on Tue Mar 15th at 5p Central. Ooh, so exciting!
