Our family will be in San Diego in a couple weeks for the Training Minds Speech & Debate Camp at Point Loma Nazarene University. That’s right, all 16 of us. While it is a closed event, there is a public showing of someone who has had a lot of influence on the Jeubs.
You may have heard of Michael Hyatt. He’s one of the most sought after public speakers in the country, a former CEO to Thomas Nelson Publishers, the largest Christian publisher in the world. I met Michael in 2010 at the Launch Conference (formerly called the Professional Communicators Summit). It was a significant game-changer for the Jeubs as it helped set up our businesses and how we position our resources.
Hyatt has since left Thomas Nelson and has launched a platform of his own. In fact, he encourages people like you and me to create our own platforms. That’s the title of his New York Times Bestseller: Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. It’s an excellent book, a step-by-step guide to building a platform in today’s world. If you’re seeking to build a platform, there isn’t a book I recommend higher.
This involves you more than you think, especially if you’re within driving distance of San Diego. Michael Hyatt is keynoting my Training Minds Camp at Point Loma Nazarene University. We bring in a keynote specifically for our campers, but this year we’re opening the keynote up to the public. That means you can come!
Hyatt speaks on something Wendy and I believe passionately about: allowing God to plan your life. Yeah, I know, our platform has this revolve around children, but walking with God is much more than that. It involves living out the purpose of your life—intentionally and with focus. So much about what Wendy and I write and speak about is along these lines: fearlessly taking on the future plans God has in store for you.
We have only 200 tickets available, and after just one day of sales 20% of them are gone. I suspect these seats will be snatched up.
By the way, I will be in Virginia Beach next week for another public keynote address from Andrew Pudewa, a homeschooling favorite and also a friend of mine. Check out this webpage for that keynote. Those tickets are half gone!
