April 30, 2009
I had the great, good fortune the morning of April 30th to spend a brief time at breakfast with Quattro teacher Gary de Rodriguez. He was staring, lost in thought, out the window at the vast sea of boats and masts docked just outside the Kona Kai hotel in San Diego (where the college is) and I went over to say Hi and how much I enjoyed his classes when he invited me to sit down.
Though we only spent about 10 minutes talking, it was great to just converse outside class about little things here and there…the kundalini of the planet, where we each were when Kennedy was assassinated, further training for Quattro reps in the Los Angeles area. He expressed a desire to train us in such a way that we “don’t even mention sales during our presentations”, making them all about the service Quattro provides and how important it is to the future of small business owners and entrepreneurs everywhere. It was a great, pleasant start to the morning I will keep among the best memories of our time here at the college.
I learned so much as a student in his class at the Quattro inaugural College. The transformations I saw in his Powerful Presentations class among my husband, the students I worked with and the ones who gave their talks at the end of the class were amazing. It was during that 20 hours of instruction with him that I felt us as a community at the Quattro College really bond to each other. Having that brief time to talk at breakfast during the college, too, was a joy and a rare moment. I can’t wait for him to come to L.A. to give us more instruction. I will be there, whatever it takes!
