Now, this is unique

Everybody has a story according to one of my audio programs. But some have better stories than others.

I had the privilege this week of spending time with a young man whose story is unique. His name is Sean Aiken and he’s almost finished with a year-long project in which he has held a different job every week for the past year. Actually, he just completed week 50 as an association executive in Austin, Texas. Next week he “enlists” in the Canadian Air Force and in his concluding week he will be Mayor of his hometown, Port Moody, British Columbia.

I encourage you to read about his grand year-long adventure at To read about his experience in Austin with my family and me, read his March 20, 2008 blog entry titled Discovering the Land of Associations. If you’re like me, you will be impressed and inspired.

Sharing the good work of others

Already on my Resources page I’ve recommended several books I’ve learned from over the years. Those references will remain posted there; new additions, however, will be featured here.

Several of my friends, colleagues, and readers have sent me copies of books they have written and I am trying to give them a thorough reading. As I make it through the backlog, I’ll post my observations. (Don’t worry, if I don’t like the book, I won’t saying anything about it). So if you’ve written a book or produced an audio or video on speaking or writing skills, let me know. If I like it and learn from it, I’ll post it here in Dave’s Raves.
