Doubtful about Mammograms? Plus…Fun with FoodPorn

Doubtful about Mammograms? Plus…Fun with FoodPorn

Feb. 27, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 4 You may have seen it in the headlines — a large and rigorous study is casting doubt on the value of mammograms in reducing deaths from breast cancer. This, like many other health scare reports in the media, can cause quite a stir among the public — that… Continue Reading

Matters of the Hearts

Matters of the Hearts

Feb. 13, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 3 February — it’s the month for matters of the heart — both the beating physical entity and the emotional heart. As I looked back in my archives, I noticed that over the years I’ve written lots about heart health and heart health speakers, but little about the emotional… Continue Reading

Would Your Audience Die Laughing?

Would Your Audience Die Laughing?

Jan. 23, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 2 The headline caught my eye:  “Laugh at Your Peril, Study Says.” What? What could that mean? So, I read on . . . it seems that a scholarly review from a British medical journal describes the many harmful effects of laughter — things like dislocated jaws, hernia protrusion,… Continue Reading

Mindfulness and Fun

Mindfulness and Fun

Jan. 9, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 1 Happy New Year! The holiday decorations are put away, and I am at my desk trying to catch up and take care of clients; and I’m noticing some residual holiday fog in this re-entry phase. I could blame it on the weather, but fortunately for us here in… Continue Reading

Sharing a Little Comfort & Joy

Sharing a Little Comfort & Joy

Dec. 19, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 25 Being in the motivational speaking business, I’m more likely to reflect a cheerful take on life than a negative one. But the truth is that most of our wonderful motivational speakers’ stories and messages stem from some life-changing occurrence (or occurrences), that weren’t so much fun to experience.… Continue Reading

Tie One On

Tie One On

Dec. 5, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 24 ‘Tis the season for giving, so I digress today from talking about speakers to share a fundraising idea that you might enjoy incorporating into your women’s events. I often hear about collecting pajamas for a women’s shelter or about running or walking for a cause, or other kinds… Continue Reading

Clicking Through to Boost Numbers

Nov. 21, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 23 Have you seen the ad where the Christmas carolers are singing their lyrics from their tablets, or the iPhones are playing a carol to which the carolers are mouthing the words?  I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to that kind of electronic nostalgia (do those words even… Continue Reading

Stepping it Up

Oct. 31, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 22 Happy Halloween! Okay, I’ve said it, and that’s all I have to say on the subject — Halloween is simply not my favorite holiday. I don’t mind the goofy dress-up part — that’s fun. Ghouls, gore and goblins, however, are just not my style. Call me a Scrooge… Continue Reading

If Bumblebees Can Fly…

Oct. 17, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 21 I love this table place card holder. It guided me to my table at the Breast Cancer Survivor Celebration put on last week by the PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center in Longview, WA. I attended this event last year as well. The message “Fight Like A Girl” is… Continue Reading

Hoopin’ It Up!

Hoopin’ It Up!

Oct. 3, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 20 It may be breast cancer awareness month, but it’s also time to be planning those heart health events for February 2014 and beyond.  I don’t think anything does the job of getting the message across — whether it’s for breast health, heart health, or any wellness initiative —… Continue Reading
