He Exclaimed, “You Have 9 Websites?”

Can anyone place this highly visible Walt Disney World landmark?

Yesterday I had the opportunity to have lunch with our 4th-grade son at school. Ashamed to admit this is a welcome privilege for any parent, any day.

What’s my excuse for not knowing?

Like any busy (parent) professional speaker, traveling for a living, managing time is challenging. Even primitive hunters long ago would be away from their children too often.

Anyway, everyone at school knows I work full-time at Disney World. Our son’s teacher even works there part-time. Not many know about the small-business entrepreneurial startup I founded 30 months ago.

So when I get there, our son’s friend exclaimed, “You have 9 websites?”

It was an unusual welcome. So smiling, and thinking for a moment, I said, “Um, I think there are 10. Five main blogs and five secondary blogs”.

Later that day, just to be sure, I counted to verify. Yep. Ten.

I don’t write about Disney or represent Disney in any way in my blogs, but it sure looks like I have the same creative and entrepreneurial spirit as Walt Disney.

Try many approaches, experiment. Work it, and work it hard.

My son says I’m famous.

I’ll take that.

The Blog Whisperer has his moments.

Currently as a Husband for 33 years, a Father for 16, and a professional speaker for 18, I began writing 5 daily, and different, blogs on April Fools Day, 2009.

Back then, it was simply a 100-day challenge to deliver on a promise I made to myself as a College Junior in 1979 - write a book about Life, for my children.

Who would have thought it would take 30 years to get started?

“I don’t write about Disney or represent Disney in any way in my blogs, but it sure looks like I have the same creative and entrepreneurial spirit as Walt Disney.”

I would challenge you on that statement Mr. Noel. The life you live (or at least what we see and read) represents the very foundation of what Disney means to a lot of people. It’s not just a theme park. It’s an approach to everything in life – leadership, excellence, service.

David, my ‘love affair” with Disney goes back somewhere to 1964-66, watching Walt Disney on our family TV on Sunday nights.

We turned a know to one of the (four) channels we had access to: ABC, CBS, NBC, and occasionally a UHF channel.

Also around that time, my sister and I would listen to the Disney Classic stories on LP Albums at 33.3 speed. All we had was audio, so the visual images we had to create in our minds.

This was the thing that really hooked me.
