Just arrived in New York City to go hear Seth Godin speak tomorrow. Pretty exciting.
The monetary cost to come see Seth speak was approximately $1,000 with $500 for the ticket and another $500 for airfare. Thanks to my friends Ann and Harrison at the East Village Bed & Coffee I have a free place to stay. (Peanuts, I say!)
For some reason, while I was on the plane flying up here from the Caribbean I kept thinking about purchasing the ticket a couple of weeks ago. After I made the purchase, in the days and weeks that followed, I mentioned my plan to numerous folks and pretty much received the same response from everyone.
Are you f-ing crazy?
But, when people would tell me I was crazy for spending the money, I really didn’t know what to say. How do you respond to that…? I certainly wasn’t going to justify my actions to them, so I just kind of half smile-nodded and walked away. In truth, I was almost a little happy that they reacted the way that they did. To me, they are the crazy ones.
And if you’re reading this and you agree with me, then I guess you are just as crazy as I amShare this post:
