Public Speakers


                Twenty years ago when I entered the professional speaking industry I didn’t realize I was becoming a part of an industry that has at its root – a desire to change the world. But I shouldn’t be surprised. I’ve resonated with a change the world attitude for […]

Merging and Purging


      It seems like as we go through life we are either merging or purging. When we start our adult life, we can’t wait to merge. We look for new friends, new jobs, new relationships, children and many other ways of bringing people and events into our lives. We want to merge and […]

Leverage Your Value

Extreme Thought


          We all have the gift of independent thought – what a blessing! Interesting though that we are often judged by the independence of our thought. Some people function best within expected norms of their culture. Others live outside of the box following a different drummer. I have a very good […]

Dreams Do Come True


              One of my long-term dreams is coming true next month! For some time, I have admired the California Women’s Conference. It’s a major women’s conference that occurs annually at the Long Beach Convention Center. Multiple top-notch speakers are featured each year and this event has always been one […]
