On September 16, 2015, Love Your Life to Death, was officially launched on Peter Jennings’
show Be My Guest, in Huntsville, ON. It was filmed by TVCogeco, shared in the newspaper and over 90 people were present. It was one of the most exhilarating, terrifying and wonderful nights of my life.
Lesson #1: You never know what you’re capable of, until you vacate your comfort zone!
I wasn’t an author, and I was petrified to speak in public. But I planned, prepared and persevered.
I sought out mentors and surrounded myself with supportive people. I took one step at a time,
not knowing where it would lead. And this is what followed:
*Several speaking engagements
*Hosted a TVCogeco Television series
*Interviewed for Rogers, The Agenda, radio, newspaper, and magazines
*Over 2000 books in print; available on Amazon, our website, various retailers and libraries across Canada
*Website, Blog/Vlog, Twitter, YouTube Channel and Facebook page
*And so much more!
I LOVE my new purpose and I will continue to support and guide people forever,
and continue to learn along the way.
Lesson #2: Follow Your Bliss. Listen to your Inner Voice. It knows the way!
I share my message as an Inspirational Speaker, with heart and humour and empower communities and professionals to live life to the fullest, grieve and support others and have “The Talk” about end of life, long before it arrives. There have been obstacles, struggles, walls and hills to climb.
But I know in my heart that this is my journey, and I get up everyday and keep on going.
Lesson #3: Believe in Yourself. Surround yourself with supportive people.
Have fun along the way!
This year we are travelling across Canada and beyond, and share my book and message with communities, companies and corporations. Have book, will travel.
Lesson#4: Be proud to promote yourself.
If you have a message that needs to be heard...don't be afraid to shout it from the mountaintop!
Thank you everyone, from the bottom of my heart, for your stories, support, sharing my message and for being a part of the Love Your Life to Death Community. I cannot do this alone.
Together we can create a culture of change. There is so much more to come…
