Well, activity on this page continues to be very limited. The activity on LinkedIn is greater. I've decided to start posting primarily on linkedIn. I will accept your invitation to connect. Just use my work email firstname.lastname@example.org and also it would be great if you let me know you first visited FB and found your way over to LinkedIn. Another option is to join my newsletter. Which you can do from here or on my website. Either way, I hope you decide to connect.
I suspect it was largely due to the people on this page that helped me achieve this ranking. I sincerely appreciate your support.
Today I received an email that said I earned the #1 spot Global Guru spot for communication. (There is a part of me that thinks this must be some sort of mistak...e., but another part that wants to believe it's true.) I've been on the list for a few years now, but much lower in ranking. Here's the link they sent me.
Also for Valentine's Day, I thought I would share this video about how to joke with others in a kind manner using Ellen as a model.
Gurutej Kaur is a friend of mine and she shared her guidelines for a healthy, juicy relationship. I copied them below becuase I thought it was PERFECT for valen...tine's day! I also included a video she made for today if you want to try a meditation with your sweetheart. Thanks Gurutej Kaur!
1. Sunia/She’ma. Listen. If you can’t listen to yourself, you can’t listen to others. Listening is the kingpin of communication. You don’t have to believe it, just listen.
2. Respect and Honor are the glue of all relationships. It allows you to be your true self and to embrace others for who they are.
3. Trust: is destroyed or built moment by moment.
4. Perspective. Be willing to see things from a different perspective. If you only hold on to yours, the relationship will perish. Be connected, give up being right.
5. Love or Compassion transcends time and space. Love means you open to the other. Compassion is the power to get curious and allow the differences to exist with grace.
6. Have good tools. Collect great tools. Have tools to break up fights, to let go, to rejuvenate yourself. to breathe, to see from their side and shift the situation. Know what helps the other to relax, let go, then do it.
7. Humor. Laugh often and find things to laugh about daily. If you can’t laugh at yourself and situations, then life will be hard.
8. Forgiveness. This will release you from the past pain and open you to experiencing new joy.
Shared this on my personal page...thought you might be interested too.
I have a confession that I have rarely, if ever, shared. LONG before I became "The Public Speaker" I went to a clown class and worked as a professional clown...! I was cleaning out my old clown gear and found this photo at the bottom. It was my graduation day.
P.s. that's me with suspenders and yellow hair. Notice how much space I was taking up! I loved being a clown! My name was Miss Fit pronounced misfit. I had clothes that didn't match and my schtick was that "I never fit in" --so all of my clown games were fun)silly team games where everyone had to work together.

Here's a project from my daughter. I am putting it here because we can learn from her video. Most people when they start with video they put together a montage of photos--instead of telling a story. This project definitely tells a story. It has an interesting opening, it gives a somewhat balanced view, then focusses in on a specific problem and one idea to help address the problem. She shot the majority of the video, although some of the footage she needed to use from others.
"We deserve better than this!" My stomach is in a knot. How can this be in 2017?
This is what I tell my kids everyday. Success is not about making mistakes, it's about what your attitude and what you do after the mistake.
