Some sit on sandy beaches. Others on luxurious cruises.
But I'm spending my vacation week in Ottawa and Vancouver as part of The Power Within speaking series.
Act one was yesterday in Canada's capital. Close to 5,000 people in a huge room, and gotta admit that I haven't had that much fun in ages.
Can't go into too much detail as I'm actually posting from the airport and about to board a flight, but amongst the many Pow!s that thwacked me was the stamina, presence and star power of Tony Robbins.
I always knew he was the King of Kings on this beat, but lemme tell you, this guy is more. He's got Surprisingly sharp and sophisticated comedic timing, big-time street cred and can whip up a crowd like a hurricane through a box of Corn Flakes. Picture the effect of the world's biggest rock star, but with no instruments other than his voice and concepts, and you've got Tony Robbins.
Will share the stage again with him tomorrow night, and I promise you a picture, but beware--there's about a foot-and-a-half difference in height. Sadly...in his favor. Set your monitors to stretch mode.
More details and stories to come.
And by the way, don't feel too sorry for me. I've appended two days of snowboarding in Whistler after the Vancouver gig.
