    What a great interview — I feel like I know Gary now and understand why he is unstoppable! I’m inspired to grow my business with the same drive and passion. Louise, your questions were insightful as you brought out Gary’s passions and brilliance with ease. Wish I lived in NYC and could attend Entrepreneur Week.

    Linda, thanks for your kind words. I wish you could be in NYC, too. This week is Entrepreneur Week, and I’ve been volunteering. There’s so much positive energy in the crowd, and I’m finding so much inspiration from both the attendees and the speakers. But…you can watch the presentations Live via your computer this week by going to and clicking on the “Watch it Live” box.

    Louise you did a great job of interviewing Gary and he is everything you said he would be in the way of inspiration. I’m going to try and catch the last day of it now. Did he really make $100 a week at 12? Amazing. That says a lot about his drive. Thank you for bringing us this information about Gary.

    Thanks, Lesly! I watched Olivia’s video when I came home from the TSS Reunion, and immediately realized that it would be perfect to listen to just BEFORE attending the next one.

    Kelly, you’ve made my day! The entire interview is downloadable from my itunes podcast when someone does a search on Nine Work Lives. Also just want to mention that the videos of all of the speakers and panels from both the Nov and April NY Entrepreneur Week’s will be available for **free** viewing within a month, according to Gary.

    Thank you for connecting us with such an inspiration on creating and bringing to life the vision we have as entrepreneurs.

    One thing we find missing in so many places on the web is practical, specific actions to take to get to where we want to go. You’ve definitely delivered that here.

    Thank you so much!

    Pat and Lorna, Thanks for your kind words!

    Gary talks about reaching out to and meeting with 700 people over the course of a year, and the specific, effective approach he used, and as a result he developed a vision, formed a non-profit, and in less than a year has inspired thousands of people. Listening to him is a great window into what it takes to catalyze a vision or a business start up. I learned far more than I expected to, and am glad to hear that he had an impact on you, as well.

    Thanks for the kind words re: my Gary Whitehill interview. He’s an amazing guy, truly on an upward trajectory. Since this interview, he was nominated to be on the AOL Small Biz Board of Directors, alongside Richard Branson. And that’s only the beginning…
