Yes, this is, indeed, a true story. One minute I’m trying to get ready for work, gripped by panic and depression, on the verge of taking my own life. Next minute I’m staring down the barrel of a gun held by an escaped convict who picked me to kidnap from my office desk – a stranger with nothing to lose who now held my destiny in his hands. Ironic, eh? Talk about a bad day at the office! It was a life defining moment for me. We all have them, they just don’t all come with a .357 Magnum. Or maybe they do. Those moments where we realize that we have a choice – that our future is up to us. And that I day I made a choice – to survive. And it changed my life. So I want to share my story with you – to help you take your future back. To share the steps I took to reframe my perspective, think more strategically, and to go from surviving to thriving. Thriving – and purposefully finding the hilarity and humor that exists in all our lives – if we know where to look.
Who would have thought that a depressed single mom with no hope for the future would become a motivational speaker, the author of True Power and the best-selling CD series, 12 Secrets to High Self-Esteem and an extremely happy, fulfilled person? And if I can do it – SO CAN YOU. You just have to believe. And get to work. Let me show you how, like me, your life can change in a moment – by choice.
See you on the stage!
