30,000

Yesterday I talked about the month of what could have beens and it was fitting I would say that on a day that truly was a milestone.

When I started, and I say this on each milestone, I never imagined I'd have done 10% of what I've done, but yesterday my career numbers of people spoken to reached 30,000. 30,000! I still can't believe I've spoken to 1,000 much less 30x that. It all started small though and this is something I remember in every presentation. Anyone can get caught up in numbers, but I got a great question yesterday asking when someone inquired, "What can I do to increase awareness?" Here's the thing, it doesn't matter if someone reaches 10,000 or 1 as each person who gets the knowledge and understanding is going to talk to people that thereafter will talk to others. The difference in 1 and 0 is great, and each person has that chance to reach one. As for me, now, I'm leaving Minnesota and headed to Omaha for another round of presentations so here's to the next 30,000.

Here is an update of where I will be with new events on the west coast:


October 15th: Tomball TX (Houston area)

October 21: Phoenix

October 23rd: Las Vegas

October 28, 2013: Orange County, CA

October 29, 2013: Irvine, CA

November 5th: Saint Louis

  1. Just to put that into perspective, that would be like standing on the pitcher's mound at Busch stadium with it being 2/3 full of people. That is an amazing number Aaron. And you are absolutely correct, it's not about the number of people in attendance. It's about the people you connect with and how many people they talk to about Autism awareness. It's as if you're playing an enormous game of "Telephone" where you tell one person and that person tells someone and they tell someone, etc., etc., etc. I've said many times in your recent blogs, you can change the world, one child at a time.
