Today's meeting of the National Speakers Association of Georgia was full of celebrity speakers. My program was "How to go from Good to Great to Awesome."
My World Champions Edge partner Mark Brown came as a guest presenter. Rich Hart, the smart program chair put Mark on the program. He spoke about 2 secret speaking weapons. Adjectives and adverbs. Mark is the 1995 Toastmasters International World Champion.
The much loved and funny June Cline has moved to Arizona and was back on in Atlanta on family business.
Ken Futch had family in town, however when they went sight seeing he came to support Fripp and NSA. Check out his website. He is the only person I know who shot himself in the head, lived and turned it into a rip roaring, hilarious speech that audiences love and corporations pay big bucks to hear.
The audience and I were thrilled to see famous humorist and comedy teacher Jeff Justice. He just came back from a family vacation and did not let jet lag keep him away!
Jeff invested in my learning materials…at the end of this message you can see him handing over his credit card! On his content-rich and fun website he offers plenty of content and free jokes.

God is Missing
A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous.
The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be assured
that if any mischief occurred in their town their two young sons were in some
way involved. The parents were at their wits end as to what to do about their
The mother had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in
disciplining children in the past, so she asked her husband if he thought they
should send the boys to speak with the clergyman.
The husband said, "We might as well. We need to do something before I really
lose my temper!"
The clergyman agreed to speak with the boys, but asked to see them
individually. The 8-year-old went to meet with him first.
The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?"
The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in
an even sterner tone, "Where is God?" Again the boy made no attempt to
answer, so the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger
in the boy's face, "WHERE IS GOD?"
At that the boy bolted from the room and ran directly home slamming himself
in his closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and said, "What
happened?" The younger brother replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time.
God is missing and they think we did it!"
