After taking the summer to spend time with my wife, son Kris Jr, daughter Lauren, and newborn Jackson….it’s time to get back to work!

Well…..I never stopped working but I did take a few months off from travel and public speaking outside of local events and seminars in my hometown of Wilkes Barre / Scranton, Pennsylvania. In addition, I started a new company (more on that in a later post) and put some money to work in various early stage and alternative types of investments.

So….for those of you that attend internet marketing conferences or just so happen to attend one of the colleges or universities I’ll be speaking at, here’s a quick summary of my confirmed public speaking appearances.

Just a note as well…..I’ve decided to lighten my public speaking load a bit in 2012 so that I could attend Mastery University with Tony Robbins. My first Mastery University session will be Date with Destiny, which will be held this December in Palm Springs, CA. The next session is Business Mastery in January 2012 in Las Vegas, NV. The final sessions will be Life Mastery and Wealth Mastery, which will be held in later 2012 in Fiji.

Living it. Loving it. Crushing it. Always. Every day is a baseline.
