Episode 1 – Eat That Frog!

It’s not like Flemming didn’t have plenty to do on this momentous day, he definitely did, but what he has learned through experience is if he doesn’t tackle the biggest task / challenge first – if he gets all the other less important things out of the way before he start the big important one – there will never be time in the day for that big important task that really shouldn’t be ingored.

So what made this such a momentous day? It was the day that the first ever Direct Response PT Websites podcast episode was recorded. Was it deliberate that Flemming chose “International Picnic Day” to record his first podcast episode? Nope! Just a happy coincidence! It turns out that June 18th is a special day in history for many reasons, including:

  • 1815 Battle of Waterloo; Napoleon and France defeated by British forces
  • 1928 American aviator Amelia Earhart becomes the 1st woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean
  • 1940 Winston Churchill’s “this was their finest hour” speech urging perseverance during Battle of Britain delivered to British House of Commons

And… it’s also Sir Paul McCartney’s birthday!

Join Flemming as he embarks on his cotton-mouthed podcast journey, with plenty of “ums” and “errs”, and uncomfortably long pauses. Includes some genuinely interesting information along with random thoughts and a good helping of unconnected notions.
