At the root of love is life. In order to live, we have to love. Love is hard. Love is work and love can be messy. But, love is always worth it. When we live our life with love, love becomes comfortable, safe, and joyful. We laugh more and live more. We forgive more. To have a career we love, to fall in love, or to love ourselves, we have to be willing to do the hardest work of our lives. In the end, love is all that matters. Let love speak in your life and join me as we do the work together and enjoy living lovespeaks.

Channel Your Inner Jimmy Kimmel

Another reason to love Jimmy Kimmel... He is my audience engagement and speaker hero and I simply adore him! So, when I watched his 13-minute monologue last night about his newborn son Billy, who was born with heart disease, Jimmy Kimmel took engagement to whole new...

Putting the TV in PerspecTiVe

This past summer we had a flood in our house. I remember a year-and-a-half ago when we bought our townhouse, I was happy not to have a basement, because in all of our past homes, basements flood. As usual, the energy and words I put into the universe came right back...
