Did you hear about the new Facebook movie coming out?  We should all meet up somewhere and see it together.

I have to say that talking to the students in East Islip really opened my eyes to try and reach every single student in the Country.  Please take a look at the letters below and see what exactly they are saying about my programs.

PLEASE listen to your students

“I really enjoyed your presentation today. You are a really smart, funny, nice guy. I feel like you out of all of these cyberbullying speakers got your point across to the students because you interacted with my classmates.  I was also wondering if you are young enough, cause you look it, to have been a victim of cyberbullying and know how to interact with technology nowadays.  Well thank you for your wonderful presentation and many laughs!! Have a nice day.”

Every school in the Country needs to bring me in to speak to the students if I am getting feedback like this:

Thank you for coming to speak at my school yesterday. I honestly initially had thoughts of skipping the assembly, but I’m glad I went. You truly held my interest and were informative in a pleasant way. You had told us that if anyone had a story pertaining to cyberbullying and whatnot to email you. Well, I do. Two close friends of mine began dating last year. Everything seemed fine at first, untill he managed to convince her to send him pictures of herself, naked, in the shower, getting dressed, etc. She would tell me about it as if it was something to be proud of. And then, once they began having sex, he convinced her to let him make a tape of that too. To my knowledge, he never showed any of the above to anyone while they were dating, but then things turned sour. Eight months into the relationship, she wanted to break up with him, and he decided to blackmail her with the videos and photographs, saying he would post them all over school and the internet to show everyone how much of a slut she was. She ended up staying in the relationship for anothing three and a half months out of fear untill, by some act of God, his laptop crashed and everything was lost. I felt so terribly for her being in that situation, and would never have imagined things would have gone that far. Your message to students is one of priceless value and I hope everyone you talk to takes it to heart. When you allow yourself to be put in that situation, you allow someone else to take control over you and what others think of you, and everyone needs to learn that. Please keep doing what you’re doing and continue to prevent this unfortunate reality. Once again, thank you.

I have Knots in my stomach today

I got a few letters from students who attended a recent seminar that I did in New York.  As usual, the shows went great and the students obviously had a great time.  The reason I have knots in my stomach is that every once in a while I will get a school administrator telling me that they can not afford to bring me in.  REALLY!!!! I am probabley the most reasonable professional speaker that you will ever meet.  See just a few of the student letters below and then ask yourself can you afford NOT to hire me?

My name is Rebecca and i attend (Omit high school). I just wanted to thank you for a great assembly you gave today (5/7/10). I think they are really important to have and yours was the best one yet. im a senior and will be graduating in about 2 months. as far back as i can remember we’ve had these assemblys with corny slide shows and videos with people who are very professional and boring. and as much as i appriciate them coming the reactions from high school students was always the same. “that was stupid” or “that stuff doesn’t actually happen” speakers dont normally connect with high school students and to be successful thats what needs to be done.. but you were different. and after i was speaking to a couple of people who really listened and were going to follow your advice. you were very straight foward and we could tell you wanted to teach us and didnt think you were better than us and weren’t trying to brain wash us. i feel like this was the only assembly students took to heart and paid attention. i dont know if you answer your face book messages personally or not but i needed to share this with you. you’ve inspired me to do so much and gave me hope in the human race again. it sounds silly but ive given up hope that people cared and that there are good people in this place. i plan on going into the US Marine Corps and then being a cop and work my way up to working with battered children and now, thanks to you, hopefully motivational speaking. i finally know what i want to do. so thank you again. ive had my share or cyberbullying. nothing major but stupid high school drama. normally im the one sticking up for the person being bullied. this causes many people not to like me at school. because i say stuff most people keep in their heads. i stick up for people and i know thats the right thing to do. thank you for taking time out of your busy schedual and reading my letter. thanks again for the great assembly and all that you do.
