My Christmas Wish!!

By Janet Graham - Last updated: Friday, December 13, 2013

This year has been an exciting one for me!!   I have sold more than 2,250 copies of my book,  Babes on Bay Street and I have spoken about the book and the "Lessons Learned by the Babes on Bay Street" to more than 2,500 people in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Washington and places in between. It has been a wonderful year and a fabulous experience!!   I am grateful to those of you who purchased my book and to those of you who asked me to speak at an event your company or your organization was hosting. Your support meant so very much to me!!   However, I am not done yet and so I am sharing My Christmas Wish with you!!   I would like to speak ...

I am writing this post to alert you to the re-organization of my blog to insert a new "media" tab which covers all of my media appearances whether in Print or on the Internet or on Television or Radio.   Needless to say, I am absolutely thrilled with the level of interest my book Babes on Bay Street and personal appearances have generated!!   I would be honoured for you to take a look at the contents of the new tab and delighted to hear what you think!!   Thank you for your continued support!!

Lately, I have been tweeting about articles I find worthy of reading, however, I thought the article by Sylvia Ann Hewlett in Sunday's New York Times (April 14, 2013) "Mentors Are Good.

Many months ago when I was getting close to publishing my book Babes on Bay Street, a good friend suggested I could expect to be invited to speak about it when it was published and I might want to consider hiring a speaking coach to help me in this area. In fact, she suggested I meet with the speaking coach her husband had engaged and found to be quite wonderful, so I made the connection with Elizabeth Hunt of Hunt Communication. (http://www.huntcommunication.com/)   And she agreed to work with me!!   Elizabeth really focused on the content of my presentation "Lessons Learned by the Babes on Bay Street."  In fact, some of the most magical parts of it came from Elizabeth!! She believes when ...
