Headin’ to New York!



It has to be really important to me if I’m willing to get out of bed at 3:15am! This class was that important to me! You see, Yvonne Conte wrote a book ‘Make A Big Deal Out Of Nothing: Expert Tips on Becoming a Motivational Speaker and a Bestselling Author. Yvonne is a best selling author, founder of Humor Advantage, Inc. and a well sought after keynote speaker. Her BIG Italian personality shines through her humor and ‘treat you like family’ mentality makes her so easy to be around!

This book was the checklist for me to get my book Why Your Life Sucks into an actual real life book.  My dream is to be a motivational speaker – helping people change their lives for the better. I believe we have a moral responsibility to share the struggles and challenges that we have in order to help other people learn from our own stuff. As people we have learned things that other people want to learn about. We have answers that will help people heal and breakthrough challenges in their own life.




I traveled to Syracuse, New York for #TheSpeakerClassSYR. I love to travel and enjoy getting a day away from the organized chaos of my life. A quiet car ride energizes me and refreshes me to be my best for my family. It’s a win win! I was inspired by Yvonne and learned so much about creating a speaking career, what kinds of groups look for speakers, what to charge and al that kinds of stuff.


I am so thankful for her! Years ago I learned from a mentor of mine Dani Johnson to find someone who is doing what you want to do and do what they do.  Sounds easy, right. Learn from them, watch them, how to they conduct business, who do they hang out with, etc.


I love how God places people in our lives that are a connector. People who stand in our lives as we connect the dots. Yvonne is that person for me! Follow your dream – invest in it, water it, learn from other people and watch it grow.




So tell me, who are you learning from these days? Who is that person who is doing what you want to do with your life? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
