I got a last minute email from one of the guys in the Austin Society, a local pick up group, saying that a speaker had canceled and they were looking for someone to fill in. Awesome. I love public speaking and have actually been meaning to do more of it (in fact, I'm thinking about giving talks in every city I hit when I start my RV trip).
There are pick up groups pretty much everywhere now. They're great because they can provide a good support and accountability system, but they there's a certain rut that they can push members into. Often times you'll see members totally overwhelmed with ideas, tactics, and styles, that actually get in the way of real progress.
So I decided to take it back to the basics and talk about the fundamental things a student of pickup should focus on. The topics I covered are focus, storytelling, being yourself, and your comfort zone.
I just got my amazing new camera, the Panasonic GF1, so naturally I wanted to put it to use and make a video. Make videos with that thing is a ton of fun, so expect more videos soon (skateboards and mopeds coming up soon).
The first video is a tour of my RV, including a couple of the modifications I've made to it. Things change fast, though, as you can see from the photo above. The moped and Aeron aren't in the video.
I have a bunch of upgrades I'll be doing around Thanksgiving, so I might post a short video update then. I'll be putting in wood floors, maybe granite countertops, and removing a bunch of heavy items (awning, heater, air conditioner).
