This year started with presenting in a rural Texas hospital and ended 12 months later presenting in a major metropolis for an insurance giant and saw about 65 programs delivered all over North America in between.
Whew, good thing my job energizes me! I am so blessed to be able to share the message of living Your Life, Unlimited!
From coast to coast, no matter where my business travels take me, no matter what people do for a living, or what initials they have (or don’t have) after their name, the wants, needs and expectations of people seem to be the same.
We all want to have hope, to feel valued, empowered and inspired. We all want laugh more and love larger. And we all know that we learn better when we re having fun. And we did have fun in 2015.
As much as my audiences learn from me, I get back from them the energy, inspiration and belief in the power of my message to pack my suitcase for another year of helping people bring their “A” game to work & life.
Here are some typical comments (unedited) from a sampling of this years audience members, call me if you would like similar responses for the next event you are planning, I will work closely with you to ensure more great results!
