Great Holiday Gift for Your Parents

Hey, Everybody! Here’s a great holiday gift idea for your parents!

We gave the book, “Conversations with My Father” to my Dad for his 90th birthday back in August, and over the Thanksgiving holiday we finally had time to sit down as a family to go through it with him.

It’s a wonderful book and gift […]

My Holiday Gift to You

This is such a special time of year. When I used to live in Japan, there were tons of fun “forget-the-year” parties. And we used to visit the temples at midnight on New Years.

What’s on your holiday wish list?

As I look back over 2014, one of the things I realize I am most thankful […]

Light the Heavens With Your Marketing Message This Season

If you’re a feminine leader with a mission on the planet, do you ever find yourself struggling for the words to describe what you do?

You’re not alone! I just returned from an amazing seminar where we talked about the power of words. Almost everyone was struggling with the right words to magnetize their audience.

And […]

Hang Out With Celebrities Over the Holidays

I recently had the great fortune of seeing “Jersey Boys” for the second time.

I first saw this unforgettable musical based on the story of the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons on Broadway last July. And then my dance partner surprised me with tickets when the show came through town on tour a […]

Get Your Genius Out of Your Head and Onto the Page

Last month was a month of travel and learning for me.

One of my destinations was La Jolla, Calif., where I got to hang out with Lisa Sasevich, known in entrepreneurial circles as the “Queen of Sales Conversion.”

Many times while onstage, Lisa stressed the importance of speaking if you want to rock your business. (Everyone […]

It Takes Teamwork to Make Your Dream Work

Are you a writer working in isolation?

Writers tend to be pretty independent people. A lot of us enjoy working on our own. Trouble is, there’s more to the writing life than sitting by yourself writing your book (or your blog.)

Much, much more.

There’s that whole other side of the business that involves being an entrepreneur. […]

If You’re in Business, You’re a Speaker

I recently had the good fortune of meeting speaker and author, Lisa Nichols, at a networking event. You might know her from “The Secret,” or as co-author of the highest selling of the “Chicken Soup” books, “Chicken Soup for the African-American Soul.”

I actually got to sit at her table, two seats away, and what […]

The Elevator Speech is Dead

The elevator speech is dead. Long live the one-liner!

When you started your business, were you told that you needed to come up with an “elevator speech?” That’s a description of what you do that’s so concise you could deliver it to someone during a short elevator ride.

Well, guess what? Even the elevator speech is […]

You Have a Story Inside of You

I have to ask you a question. Do you ever feel like you have a story, or even an entire book inside of you, but somehow you just never get around to writing it?
Have you ever asked yourself why you’ve never written your story? Or even started it?

You probably tell yourself you’ll get to […]
