Motivational Speaking – TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly)
By Scott A. Heintzelman
Last evening I was the guest speaker for a local TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly) chapter meeting. I have done a lot of public speaking in my life on many subjects (like leadership, fraud, family business, employee engagement…), but this was a first for me. I have a good friend attending TOPS and she asked me to come and share my story of getting fit. I was able to talk about both nutrition and exercise and hopefully was an encouragement to the class. They asked me numerous questions which caused me to more than exceed my allotment of time. I hope that is a good sign that what I had to say resonated with them. They also asked me to come back and provide an update on my quest to achieve 10% body fat. I love encouraging people to set Big Hairy Audacious Goals, put together a plan to succeed and finally to work hard to achieve them.
