Are You a Greek or a Roman?

One of my fondest memories as Northern California National Speakers Association chapter president was being on a panel with other past presidents. 

I had developed this idea that in our business you were either a Greek or a Roman. The Greeks cared about passion and poetry while the Romans were all about power and money. I rented a toga for my brief talk explaining that I was too much of a Greek, and that we needed both to be successful. 

Fortunately, with the yin and yang of me and Mary, we managed to straddle both worlds at PowerSpeaking.
