    Please hire me to speak at your company. I talk too much mostly motivational gibberish. You know, the kind that overly priced speakers do. The ones that take all your money and make you feel good. I do that. Please hire me.

    Sure, but only if you give us a 500% discount on your speaking fees for helping you fix the page footer on your website.

    Oh, you black-mailer. Let me do that right away.

    I was putting it off because everyone uses at least two browsers, and that footer problem is only with IE.

    Besides,it's a non-dollar producing activity, so very low priority.

    It's boring. All I gotta do is paste a loose xhtml doctype on the top of each page, and I am dead tired. I'd rather do something more productive, such as write, or read.

    I'll do it later but soon. Smiley

    @Sathyaish Chakravarthy:

    I am dead tired, is not the phrase you should ever use, not even outside of your speach. Always say, I am exhausted, but never tired.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I say it frequently without consequence. Elaborate.

    This is a professional motivational speaker(even got me to stop biting my nails):

    Your site jsut has childish writing, nothing that screams "Professional". I seriously doubt you get any work from this site.

    @magicalclick: Why should we not use the expression "I am dead tired?"

    @Harlequin: I do get a lot of queries for work. It has only been 8 months since I started, and it takes time to build anything new. I'm now in the phase where things are really beginning to pick up. Luckily, a lot of leads are now materializing.

    Anthony Robbins is a great motivational speaker. I admire him much.

    At the same time, I wanted to create my own website my own way, to express, more than to impress. Now that I work for myself, I'd like to do things the way *I* like. I figured I am going to die alone -- not with my company, not with my clients, not with prospects, not with my spouse, with no one, but alone. I'd rather do things, then, that pleased me.

    "What would be more important to me if I had just 3 months to live, expressing my own views, or falling in line -- being a conformist?" I asked myself. I decided I would live by that.

    Before I write anything, I bring to mind what O.Henry said, "Inject a few raisins of conversation into the tasteless dough of life."

    No, but we can fault him for trying the wrong way.

    It's called poking fun at yourself. It's called making people laugh, and having one yourself.

    It's a form of humorous writing, I forget the technical name of which.

    It's not that I believe all that I say there. If I did, I'd never have been doing what I do. Constantly listening to motivational messages is what drove me to take charge and change the course of my life.

    Motivation is absolutely necessary for every individual to break all self-imposed barriers and push themselves to their best, then whether such motivation comes from within (some people are self-motivated because of the environment in which they were brought up, or by listening to and reading motivational books/tapes) or from someone outside.

    Not exactly Monty Python, is it.
