The first interview I did for my podcast was with Zetti. Although I had been interviewed hundreds of times, I had never interviewed anyone else. She made my job easy because she openly and transparently shared her life story. Hollywood couldn’t script a better story. Click on the link to listen. You will not be disappointed…

Change. Really?

Fifty years ago, the band Ten Years After released a song titled “I’d Love to Change The World.” In the lyrics, they talk of noble ideas such as feed the poor, stop war, and eliminate pollution. Yet, in the chorus the lyricist wrote, “I’d love to change the world, but I don’t know what to do.”

These world challenges are huge, almost overwhelming. But I believe we can do something about them. Change begins when we are willing to do something. Change begins with me…

Struggling Kids…

Yesterday I was privileged to speak to a group of foster children. It felt great to be speaking again, especially with kids. I was an insecure, angry, struggling kid myself, and because of my upbringing I connect with kids.

Greed…

In the movie, “Wall Street,” the main character told us that “greed is good.” By definition, greed means a selfish desire for wealth and power. There is nothing wrong with wealth and power until you throw selfishness into the mix. Keep your motives true and noble, and should you start feeling selfish, give away what you have accumulated.

Restoration…

We love happy endings to movies, don’t we? Hallmark has perfected this. Do you know why we love these movies? It’s because we want restoration, we want happy endings in our lives…we want to know order will be restored and everything will make sense in the world. These movies give us hope that they are possible.
