I invite you to meet some of my family--my parents, two brothers and a sister. Hear stories from our potato farm in Caribou, ME, .experiences in 4-H and humorous times of growing older and wiser.
I tell stories because I am passionate about storytelling. I believe that telling one's story and listening to another's story is more than entertaining, It can lead to a greater understanding of another person and a deeper insight into the world and its peoples. Thus, I would share my stories with you for free................BUT....................
I have expenses in getting to your venue. First I must custom-tailor a program for your audience, practice, practice, practice, transport myself to your venue and tell my heart out! It requires time and energy, then more time and energy. So, let's make a deal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Offer to pay me what your feel is reasonable and fair, taking into consideration the program I have agreed to do for you and the traveling expenses I will incur. I am also open to the grand old American bartering system. Let's talk. We'll work it out!
This is my preferred and most convenient form of communication.
I frequently do not have my phone on and will not answer it at inconvenient times. So please leave a message. I won't return the call unless there is a message.
