Big Announcement: The Final Chapter of Keynotes to Collectibles
This may be my last podcast...about sports collectibles! As many of you know, at the beginning of this year, my family and I jumped off the cliff and purchased Ray's Sports Collection which included a storefront at Traders World and a warehouse full of collectibles. From the beginning, I knew this was a short-term focus until the speaking industry came back—but I didn't know just how short-term it would be until an amazing guy named Tim walked into our store. In this episode, I’m sharing the amazing story of how we sold Ray’s Sports Collection. You won’t want to miss this one.

Generosity is the Best Business Strategy - Keynotes to Collectibles
When we jumped off the cliff and purchased Ray's Sports Collection, I didn't want to take the leap without knowing that we'd have enough margin to be generous. Yes, it's a business—but surprising and delighting customers by giving away the unexpected is our core value. So in this episode, I'm sharing some amazing stories of what generosity has led to in this venture, along with why I chose this over Zoom meetings during the pandemic. I'd be honored if you listened.
When Is it Time to Say Goodbye to Your Collection? - Keynotes to Collectibles
For many years, Ray's Sports Collection was just that—Ray's! Ray is a real guy who sold his incredible inventory of sports cards and collectibles to me, and in this episode, I honor him and his decision to sell his collection to me. If you're a collector yourself, you've probably had this passing thought: What happens to my collection when I'm gone? I'm also sharing stories of other collectors who made great plans for their collection, and ones who didn't, plus the one thing that will always be more important than your collection.

What Living the Dream Means to Me Now - Keynotes to Collectibles
We've had the same family van for over fifteen years. And yes, it's a little less shiny than it was 200,000 miles ago. (It got so bad at one point that our youngest son Oliver made us drop him off down the street from his friends' house.) But now, I've never been more grateful for that van—and it really exemplifies what I mean when I say I'm living the dream. Who would have thought? Listen in to hear what I mean!
