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’m going to keep a video diary of this special (and awkward) time in my life. From […]

Isn’t it incredible that all the seemingly random things you do in life can be connected like a beautiful patchwork quilt that somehow fits perfectly together? I never thought that being a real estate broker in my early years, or speaking and now being a talk show host would have anything to do with one another. 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 on Children Are Human Too: Children’s Rights

‘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 […]

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!
