    Do speaking the right way: Tom interviews Bret Ridgway

    Bret Ridgway is here. He's a 25 year veteran of the speaking industry. He got his start handling the back of the room sales tables at around 150 Internet and information marketing conferences. That's where I met him. And that led to the formation of Speaker Fulfillment Services, the company that handled product fulfillment for speakers, authors and information marketers. And now he's working with entrepreneurs and business owners who want to launch a second career as a speaker.

    Keep trying to get better: Tom talks Second Week on TikTok

    I'm here in the second week of my efforts on TikTok. And again, I'm not going to get into any of the controversy over whether they're going to kidnap my whole family and put us in slavery. I know everything they say about TikTok, but I've got to use it to my advantage. And I'm learning a lot this week. I mean, you get better and better as you work it. And I'm turning out good videos faster.
