This blew me away! My favorite part of my interview with DJ Verrett, was when he read his original poem, ‘Outta Myself,’ which inspired his rap song by the same title. We captured it on camera and later he sent me his song to share with you. The last line in the poem gets me every time!

K Video Diary – Mini Meltdown At Kmart

March 5th, 2013 | Added to: K's Journey | Comments Off

March 5, 2013 Yesterday I burst into tears at Kmart. The show launches in 5 days and I realized that I’ve been harboring some fear about releasing what I’ve worked so hard on, to the world. So I did what I always try to do when I feel over worked and over stressed; I stop and pull out my “tools”. I’m understanding that I’m at turning point in my life; a milestone. So, I’m going to keep a video diary of this special (and awkward) time in my life. From […]

Let alone, that each previous career would hold the key to unlocking my potential in the next… It all began when I started in sales, where you need to master the art of communication, […]

February 26th, 2013 | Added to: K Experts, Kommunity, Kouch Time | Comments Off

‘Under the law, children have long been regarded as the PROPERTY of their parents. State statutes and case law nationwide protect the constitutional rights of parents, often disregarding the rights of children. What is now common knowledge among professionals and the general public with respect to the importance of loving, appropriate child rearing, is generally not reflected in the law.‘ – Parenthood in America Stacey’s story was another interview that taught me so much about our world. I had no idea how many children are not being protected and that the […]

Christine’s story taught me that we don’t all get a choice and that we don’t all have control over that. For Christine, it was a skin disorder, for others it can be as simple as aging and weight gain or as severe as being a burn victim. So life happens and therefore, it’s absolutely imperative that your happiness is not based on […]

Meet my friend and guest, Allan Anderson.  I originally met Allan as my personal trainer, so when he opened up to me about his recovery as an alcoholic I was surprised because he is just so fit!

Vodka For Breakfast

February 13th, 2013 | Added to: Interviews | Comments Off

Having his first drink at age 16, Allan’s social drinking escalated over the years to a full blown drinking problem. By age 35, he was an alcoholic. His alcoholism lasted just over a decade. In our interview, Allan admits that at the height of his addiction, he would wake up and need a vodka orange for breakfast. Anyone can be an alcoholic.
