Never Follow A Beef Dinner

My goal is always to create an experience that is meaningful for all. It’s not all content. If audiences are looking at their phones, not listening, and having a hard time focusing, it’s a wasted opportunity for all. But it’s also not all entertainment. They want to be engaged…but they don’t need a comedian.

Being a Motivational Speaker Can Be Terrifying

There are tons of techniques to get the audience to bond with you as a funny motivational speaker.  But nothing is as powerful as customized, on-the-spot humor created about what’s happening right then. In that room.  At the convention.  At the hotel.  And happily for me, this is something I’m both very good at…and I love to do.  

What Do You Have in Common With a 3rd grader?

Third graders love to be told they are doing a good job. They love it when you tell them they did that math problem perfectly, or that their coloring is looking awesome.
