When my book was published, my friend, mentor, and teacher, Dr. Paul Ponchillia, called to congratulate me.
“How long have you been working on this book?” he asked.
Thinking back, I first answered, “Since January of 2012.”
Paul was silent.
Thinking back, I revised the date, saying, “No, it was more like some time in 2008 or so.”
It was actually in 1990.
The table below began it’s life as a timeline for the birth of a book. Today it’s about how the book came to be. But it’s also about the birth of a public speaker.
