Celebrity Sightings: An Interview With Mr. E! The Motivator

I had the sincere pleasure of meeting Mr. E! The Motivator at Parents Palooza . I also had the opportunity to hear him move the crowd.  Although Mr. E! does not wear stilettos he is an example for us all about how to achieve balance and achieve our dreams.   Mr. E! is a dad living his dream.   He is a dad and a high school counselor .  He also describes himself as the best motivational speaker around and his time at the microphone did not disappoint. He has an ingenious way of infusing motivational messages into rap music . The messages are designed to educate and entertain. His mission is to motivate students to value education, stay in school and achieve their dreams. As you can see from this video, he is the right person to deliver that message. Enjoy the video!!!

A Peek Into the Life of a Mommy Blogger: Speaking at Parents Palooza

This past weekend I spoke at Parents Palooza in Atlanta, Georgia , an extravaganza for parents and children. Being in Atlanta was a great treat. I was able to spend time with my sister who is a fantastic friend and a wonderful aunt to my daughter. She’s also a marketing genius who helped whip my Power Point into shape! The title of my presentation was “How to Live Your Dream Life While Waiting for Your Dream Job ”. My goal was to inspire the participants and change lives. So many speakers encourage people to achieve their dreams, but few tell them what to do in the meantime.   I answered that question. “Work to achieve your dreams, but commit to being happy now.” I was pleased that my speeches were well received. You can find videos of the speeches on this site and on YouTube soon. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from Parents Palooza.   Me and the toddler, excited to be at Parents Palooza.
