“We should all strive to be extraordinary, and that starts with a focus on our own capabilities instead of those of our opponents.” ~ Don Yaeger
This past week I spent four days in Baltimore at the AISAP Annual Institute – to say that I had a great time would be an understatement!
There are so many memories and take-aways from this year’s annual institute but I’ve listed my favorite below:
- Finally having a chance to meet THE Chuck Will and then interviewing him in front of the whole institute with my friend Rob Norman from Inspired School Marketers.
- The introduction by Board Member Ray Diffley of an annual award to be named after Andy Noel. I never did have the pleasure of meeting Andy but Ray’s very emotional presentation left me with the highest impression of him and was a fitting beginning for this award.
- The presentation by Don Yaeger about “What Makes the Great Ones Great.”
- The launch of the AISAP Certified Program. OK – I’m still excited about this initiative.
- The scenery and company on the Dinner Cruise.
- Having my family with me in Baltimore.
- Meeting so many readers of the blog.
I really did have a great time and could go on and on but I’ll spare you. If you’d like to see a few of my pictures from the event check out my Tumblr.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Here’s the thing. Typos happen. No matter how vigilant you are, no matter how many times you run spell check, no matter how many times you proofread, one of those suckers will slip through. Maybe that’s why whenever I catch a typo in someone else’s content, I’m suddenly a little bit happier. Some call that schadenfreude; others call it being a jerk. Either way, I know I’m not alone in this sentiment.
Do you create content for your business? Want to encourage people to share it? To explore the art and science of social sharing, I interview Bryan Kramer.
When I began SchneiderB.com four years ago one of the blogs that I consistently read and modeled was Chuck’s Corner written by Chuck Will.
Although I’m excited for you to hear my conversation with Chuck it’s also bittersweet for me because Chuck’s Corner but will end this year when Chuck retires from Proctor Academy.
For 15 years Chuck has taught us about Proctor Academy, boarding school, blogging, photography, and ultimately, how to tell a great story.
I really enjoyed my conversation with Chuck and know you will as well.
Congratulations Chuck and thank you for all that you’ve done!
