[39:45] There are the usual things you need to know when launching a new product, service or business - and you can easily Google those but the one factor, which can mean the difference between success and failure, is discovering what you don’t know and actually preparing for it.
In this episode, Greg speaks with our guest, Lance Miller. From Glendale, California, Lance is a world renowned, keynote speaker, trainer, coach & author. Most of us know him as the Toastmasters' 2005 World Champion of Public Speaking but he’s also a successful businessman - having launched five successful new business start-ups and over two dozen new product/service launches. But admittedly, he’s also had a dozen or so failures.
So today, Lance, a regular on Toastcaster, shares some of what he knows and how he discovered what he didn’t know on his journey and how we can learn from what he experienced. This includes his brand new start-up venture - The World Champion Online Speakers Summit where people have an opportunity to watch and hear in depth over 24 World Champs about their journeys, lessons learned and even his or her winning speech.
Lance can be reached at LanceMillerSpeaks.com. You might also want to check out the World Champion Online Speakers Summit, where you can get a free introductory access.

Toastmasters DVDs & Videos can make a great in-meeting educational tool. They are also handy when you have low member attendance and or prepared speeches. It's a great alternative to just extending Table Topics. Until 2011 Official Toastmasters Convention CDs & DVDs were produced by Bill Stephens Productions. Some videos are now available via streaming, digital download and still some in DVD format via Toastmasters On-Demand.
Listen to hear what one club did and how amazingly well the results were.
(PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS THE SAME PODCAST as Toastcaster 21, which somehow became detached and did not appear on iTunes.)
