Live, From New York… It’s Thursday!

by Lain Ehmann on June 7, 2012

Hey you!

I’m in New York City, the Big Apple, which is like the darkest corners of my mind… a place I don’t go unescorted. :) Which is why I brought my body guard with me:

Doesn’t he look tough? Heehee. (Sorry about the sideways look – it wasn’t like that in preview.)

We’re here because I am speaking on a panel at BlogWorld Expo. My topic: Building community through podcasting. Ahh, community building – one of my favorite topics!

I’m also enjoying hooking up with some of my idols, like Pat Flynn:

Pat’s a rockstar in the internet marketing world, and teaches people how to run ETHICAL and PROFITABLE online businesses. You can check him out at SmartPassiveIncome.com (I have a blog post up over there on how I use webinars in my business… leave me a comment!). Even though he went to Cal, he’s still cool. ;)

I also got to hear Michael Hyatt (another great sideways photo!) speak this morning on the topic of building a platform. Michael is the Chairman and former CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing, and is, in my mind, a beacon of integrity and morals in a world that is quickly sinking. It takes people like Michael and Pat to fight the darkness, and I applaud their efforts. (Michael’s book, Platform, is a must-read for anyone looking to make themselves heard in our crazy-busy world).

We head home tonight, and I’m missing my girls (and my husband!). I’ll be podcasting first thing tomorrow… so stay tuned!

    First of all, great legs there sistuh.
    Second, I would have totally taken you out to lunch. Were you at Javits. I work walking distance from there. If you are ever in NYC again, I’d love to meet you and have a drink :)

    You are funny! I would LOVE to catch up the next time I’m in town. Yes, we were at Javits!
