As a motivational speaker for women, I am totally clear that I teach the things I need to learn. I haven't "arrived." I'm not speaking from some platform in the sky. I'm in the trenches, making mistakes and, hopefully, learning as I go. And today I had a delicious "aha" moment.

I am amotivational speaker by profession, but I used to be an actor for many years.

No, you DON'T need a motivational speaker to tell you that men and women approach tasks differently, but I do it in a way that's..um...different.  In fact, I can't even TELL you about it - I have to show you. So here you go.
