I am so excited to be launching my new blog and want to welcome you to the adventures of exploring with me the various topics of personal and professional growth. Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Bob Prentice, and I have been studying, speaking and writing about the subject of attitude for nearly 35 years. During this time, I have had the privilege of standing before hundreds of audiences of all sizes and all walks of life. This has afforded me many wonderful opportunities to positively impact the lives of 400,000 people through my motivational speaking, corporate training, business consulting and personal coaching.
Many have asked me how I came to be called "Mr. Attitude", so I thought this would be as good a place as any to share that story.
Years ago, I asked a very good friend and client of mine, Mike Derby, to write a letter of testimonial for me. I was very gratified to receive his reply, which began with the salutation: "Dear Mr. Attitude". Years later, my wife discovered the letter and suggested we use the "Mr. Attitude" moniker as my brand. Needless to say, the name stuck.
Now, on to the adventure! My plan is to categorize blog posts into these three primary categories, which we explore over time:
• Tools for Professional Growth is where I will share time-tested and proven tools and resources to help you attain greater success in the workplace.
• When You're Green You're Growing is where I will share my passion of growing delicious fruits and vegetables on my in town micro-farm, and all gardening has taught me about life. This will also be where people can see the back story of my life.
• Life's in the Journey and that is why I want to share with my readers the sites and sounds as I travel to and from my speaking engagements.
So, are you ready? We're going for a joy ride!
