So the quote below in response to a speaker job to which I applied and you are allowed to laugh. I did.
“Hi Anne, I hardly think that that a speech on mental health and suicide is appropriate for our Wine Tasting and Steak Dinner fundraiser.”
So yes, I brazenly submit my speaker topics to wine tasting functions. Why not? And she brazenly implied it was inappropriate in her response and I fell off the chair laughing. Charles would have made a hundred jokes about this.
It’s such a normal subject for me now. And obviously not the case with someone looking for a speaker for her wine and steak dinner fundraiser. It won’t stop me.

Seems like a perfect venue to me. 🍷 Maybe the wine would loosen people up to be able to talk about a difficult subject. Time to get out of the ‘shallow’ end of life! Keep pushing.
There is never “the right time.” So I just keep pushing. And one day I won’t get nearly as much push back. Thank you Maureen.
Good for you, Anne Moss! Keep on keeping on.
It was rotary and I speak to a rotary locally and I am going to share that story. They’ll get a laugh out of it.
