After graduating Eastern New Mexico University in December of 2001, I would go on to work in TV news for the better part of the next 6 years. But at the end of 2003, a reporter uttered the 5 words that would eventually end my career in television news.
About a year ago I made a decision to chase down a long time goal of mine to become a speaker. I've given several talks in 2017. It's a good start for a fledgling speaking career. In that time I've met some resistance and learned a lot about myself.
