I have been speaking and motivating people for over 20 years. My desire is to see them embrace the joy and freedom they were created to experience.

Whether speaking to thirty or 3000 I get people “on their feet” right from the start because the best sessions are both fun and thought-provoking.

As the author of an international blog and the motivational book Choose a Better Life: Common Sense for Uncommon Living, my mantra has been “you can’t always control what happens to you, but you can always control how you respond to what happens to you.”

Both my blog and book are full of tidbits of treasure. Each designed to be a quick read providing a specific tip on how you can and increase the joy you experience every day as well as your quality of life.
