Derek...It was a BONUS day all around with this gig for sure.  My wife said, "If God is blessing you like this today, I can't wait to see what He has in store for July."

July is important because I had a dream about 2 or 3 months ago that God told me be patient and in July things will break open. 

Jon...we definitley need to meet.  Let me see what is happening over the next couple of weeks and we will set a date.

Cam, Randell, Jen, Kim, Larry and Larry...I appreciate you celebrating with me.  It is always good to have people celebrate with you.  Especially when people like you know what it's all about.

I am looking forward to celebrating with you too!!


I flat out stold Kent's "Bonus Time" from SIF Bootcamp as part of my presentation today.  I wanted the kids to pay attentions and stay in tune, so I stopped at Walmart and bought some noise makers.

With each area I covered, I had a "BONUS" thought.  At the beginning of the presentation I handed out the noise makers to the kids and a couple of parents.  I explained if they heard me ask do you want a Bonus...make some noise...that way I will know you really want it.  IT WORKED GREAT AND THEY LOVED IT!

Thats another thing I took from SIF Bootcamp Kent... :)

Don. AWESOME!!!!!!

Thanks everyone!  I just had to share from my excitement as well I wanted to be an encouragement.

Kent...bootcamp reinforced what you had shared before about speaking for free, but not speaking for free.  You mentioned that at Dan's Write To The Bank. I didn't have the whole picture of it until bootcamp, but I realized right before coming to bootcamp I needed to ask the director about seeing if they could video the event.  That is the one that struck me the most for this particular event.  I know they flat don't have any funds, but I still wanted to serve.

I also made sure to cultivate relationships with those in charge in the room.  I would do that anyway, but I did it with a little different view of making sure they know me and what I do.  I mentioned several times in my talk that I "coach" and "speak" to various groups.  That was another one I made sure I put in.  I didn't have anyone ask for coaching...YET!  LOL!

JAG stands for Jobs for Americas Graduates.  They call it something different in each state.  I don't know that much about it.  I am just learning.  It is usually smaller groups of students who cannot finish traditional high school for some reason or another.  There may be some larger groups depending on how long the program has been in place.  This is new to this school disctrict.  There is another one in the county north of me, but again about 6 students. BUT...I am sure they have regional or national meetings for the students and/or the staff.  I also think these are all linked to each states department of labor or something similar.  I took the liberty of finding the link for Georgia so you can get an idea.  I will be finding out more because I will add them to my list!!  This is SOOOO up your alley...troubled, at risk kids and educators. 

The neat thing is I was there to simply bring motivation and inspiration.  I was not there to teach detailed lessons.  They have a program in place to help students find out if college, military or work suits them after getting their GED etc.  They talk about goals, and planning etc.

Here is the Georgia link... http://www.dol.state.ga.us/spotlight/sp_jobs_georgia_grads.htm

Don...VERY COOL! So proud of you, my friend.

Two questions..

(1) I'm interested to know how many of those strategies would you have known to apply before attending the Boot Camp? 

(2) What's does JAG stand for?

Comment by Jon Becker on November 8, 2012 at 7:40pm

That rocks, Don! We need to get together soon for coffee and talk! Keep it up!

Comment by Larry E Mason on November 8, 2012 at 7:25pm

Way to go Don, you are an incredible inspiration to your fellow SIFer's. Be Blessed

Comment by Kim Hall on November 8, 2012 at 7:24pm
