This is an update to an earlier post.

Bryan just officially secured Seth Godin to speak in Orange County on Wednesday March 2. Great work Bryan!  If you would like to attend you can buy tickets here.

You would be hard-pressed to find a more formidable marketing talent in Orange County than Bryan Elliott.

Bryan has created two massive social networks for Orange County, LinkedOC and SoCal Action Sports Network.  If you visit his LinkedIn profile, you’ll see that there are a lot of influential people that think very highly of his smarts, energy and commitment to community values.

Bryan works his tail off and is the kind of entrepreneur Orange County needs more of.

In fact, if you are looking at all with open eyes at the future of work, Bryan embodies a modern approach.

He does not sit around waiting to take orders, to be told what to do or complain that there are no jobs out there.

He imagines, creates and executes.

He just does it.

And that ain’t easy because of what Seth Godin describes as “The Lizard Brain” in his latest book Linchpin.

Seth opens up this blog post on The Lizard Brain with the following:

“How can I explain the never-ending irrationality of human behavior? We say we want one thing, then we do another. We say we want to be successful but we sabotage the job interview. We say we want a product to come to market, but we sandbag the shipping schedule. We say we want to be thin but we eat too much. We say we want to be smart but we skip class or don’t read that book the boss lent us.”

It’s a great book.  It sits next to my desk every day with dog-eared hand-written notes inside it.  It is everything you need to know to get off your ass and make something happen.

Which leads me to the purpose of this post…Bryan is battling his own lizard brain and yours and mine too, to try and get Seth Godin to speak in Orange County on March 2nd.  Here is the info:
