In the spirit of Thanksgiving on the horizon, check out the Speaking Of video where I share some of the things that I love – starting with family and friends (duh). Then I talk about a few other random things I love… like the Minnetonka Willow Bootie!
I’ll be back with an interview next week, but until then, have a great Thanksgiving!
Check out the Speaking Of, Founder’s Mission interview with Dr. Apurv Gupta, Director of Performance Excellence at Guidehouse.
With both an MD and an MPH (Masters in Public Health), plus years of experience working in both, Dr. Gupta has a unique ability to help identify and solve the challenges of the healthcare system. He shares how implementing simple communication strategies can lead to positive impacts from patient care to the bottom line.

Check out the Speaking Of video where I share a bit about my upcoming interview with Dr. Apurv Gupta, and talk about my love of Fixer Upper.
I had a great conversation with Dr. Gupta about how communication could greatly improve healthcare.
As for Fixer Upper… how could you not love that show?? I’m so ready for them to relaunch the show and launch their network. Chip and Jo changed the whole image of home and interior design – and they certainly gave new life to shiplap!
Check out the Speaking Of, Founder’s Mission interview with Mike Critelli, Co-Founder of the Make Us Well Network.

Check out today’s video where I talk about being bummed that Kennywood Park removed the Kangaroo ride! It’s such disappointing news… that doesn’t seem like it’s been well received by others either. The Kangaroo was basic, but beloved staple, just like a pumpkin spice latte in the fall!
Check out the two-part Speaking Of, Founder’s Mission interview with Lisa Sterling. Lisa is the Founder and CEO of R3-engage, and she previously led HR at Ceridian.
During her time at Ceridian, Lisa worked tirelessly to truly get to know their employees, build their trust, and positively transform the corporate culture. She not only succeeded on that mission, but was also part of the team that led Ceridian through a successful IPO.
Earlier in 2020, Lisa started her own company, R3-engage, using her vast expertise to coach others to be their best selves and excel in their career.
In part one, Lisa talks about her career path, her time at Ceridian, and how to build a thriving culture.
In part two, you’ll learn more about Lisa personally, including what drives her, winning working mom of the year, the importance of being “real,” and why following your passion is crucial.
Check out today’s interview preview and weekly update. I talk about my interview with Lisa Sterling, who was an executive at Ceridian, and recently started her own consulting company R3 Engage. Lisa is an innovator, and she’s bold. She’s also amazing at helping others get out of their own way to reach their goals!
For the weekly update, I share my love of the movie Rudy. I seriously love it. It’s inspiring and I always feel like I can do anything after I watch it!!!
Check out the Speaking Of interview with Gary Earl, who’s a “disruptive force for good.”
I absolutely love this interview. Gary is so sincere, smart, and talented, and he is passionately working every day to make positive change in the lives of others.
Gary is a hyper-innovative man who spent the first half of his career leading some of the nation’s top insurance companies and employers. He has spent the second half of his career using his expertise and passion to help drive results for people nationwide by doing things like cycling across the nation (twice!) while spreading awareness and education, to partnering with people and companies who are also on a mission to make positive change, and more.
I hope you enjoy this interview and all that Gary shares. He’s a humble and fascinating man!

In our interview, Jennifer and I talked about everything from their mission, running a business during a pandemic, her love of puns, being a working mom, and much, much more!
What started as a 3.5 hour conversation and a 1.5 hour interview, has been skimmed down to a 34 minute video – such a tough task because we had so much fun chatting! Enjoy!
Check out the Speaking Of video with the interview preview for my chat with Jennifer Ferrebee of Verde, and sharing my love of Carpool Karaoke. Those videos are some of my favorites… they can definitely suck you in!
