Dear Friends,

We owe most of our success to writers and inspirational teachers like you for the wonderful contributions of inspiration, hope, overcoming life’s challenges and realized dreams.

In the upcoming “Get Rich and Happy Event” we invite speakers and writers to write a speech that you have given or want to give someday. For example the “Live Your Peace” workshop and interview series was created by the question. “What if you had three minutes to give your best tips, tools and story on how to live with more peace in your life, family and community?” What we discovered is for people to fully live with peace they had to be doing something that feed their soul and inner calling.

In your essay write it as if it’s a talk you are giving to a specific audience. In the “Live Your Peace” talk I imagined myself speaking to the Nobel Peace committee, honored guests and the global stage during the concert the night after the award ceremony.

In my up coming talks I imagine myself speaking at TED.

Who is your audience? Who do you most want to serve and inspire with your message?

Start by writing your five word or less pitch.

“Three minutes to experience peace”

“Interviews with inspirational peacemakers”

Write the stage or audience you have in mind to give your talk.

    Ruth:

    Just wanted to clarify that even though I won’t be attending the conference, I am still able to be part of this project. I appreciate your flexibility and love being mutually supportive of each other. As my wise father said often: “One hand washes the other.”

    Hugs,

    Edie
