I want to take a break from my usual internet marketing post, and share something I learned on a trip to Australia this week (was down there speaking at a event for small business owners).
On the flight over, I read the book “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pauch. I had seen the video a few years back when it became one of the most watched YouTube videos ever, but never read the book.
Anyway, I brought up the book when I was talking to several of the other speakers and organizers. To my surprise, I was the only one that had ever even heard of it (it has over 12 MILLION views, so I erroneously thought everyone had seen it).
So here it is for all of you that missed this for some reason.
Be warned, it is a long video (70 minutes) and there is no way you will be able to make it to the end without tearing up. But it is a great story about living out your dreams. As entrepreneurs we have an even stronger core desire to do what it takes to live our dreams than most people…so I felt it was especially appropriate for Dan’s blog.
Enjoy it, and give you family extra hugs this holiday season.
On a side note…one of my childhood dreams was to travel across Australia. Now it looks like I will be going on a multiple city tour all over Australia this spring speaking to entrepreneurs. Childhood dreams do come true.
