I was truly inspired at the Twitter Conference 140 this week. Not because I learned a ton of new Twitter tricks, but because Tony Robbins gave one of the best motivational keynote addresses I have ever seen. No wonder celebrities and athletes pay this guy the big bucks. Tony had us jumping in the isles, connecting with our more positive self. He also weaved how Twitter can be used to help trigger conversation or inspiration by sharing and connecting with others. We all know that Twitter can't be used as a substitute for real relationships, but it can be used a trigger to share with others.
I was also honored to be interviewed for Robert Scoble's new venture with RackSpace, Building43.com. The interview should be live soon. Michael Sean Wright, who is also a core eGuider, was filling in for Scoble since he was unable to attend due to the birth of baby Ryan.
It was great to meet up with Brian Wong, who is the CEO of FollowFormation.com, a great Twitter tool for novice Twitter users and I got to meet iJustine, who was very sweet. She should join th eGuiders team.
Here are a few pictures. Enjoy!
Here is Tony's headshot. He really does have amazing teeth. I was skeptical at first, but man can this guy tell a story. "If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. " Good to remember when you're in the middle of chaos, challenge & fear. :-)
He had us on our feet, jumping for joy!
It was really incredible.
