fort myers: Channeling my Inner Jimmy Kimmel - 04/26/20 05:59 PM
Last week I had the privilege of hosting the 2020 Local Image Awards, an annual event of the Southwest Florida Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA).

Although the event is usually a dinner ceremony where attendees can celebrate together in-person, the COVID-19 pandemic cause the event to become online only. We livestreamed the event on April 23, 2020. Even if you are not familiar with FPRA, you may find this production entertaining.
The 30 minutes leading up to the show's kick-off features music performed by pianist Marc Collins. 

The Southwest Florida Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) is also celebrating … (4 comments)

My 11 day experience outlined by Jon Gordon in his book "The Positive Dog," has reached Day 10.

For day 10 the author tells us to lose yourself in the moment.

If this is the first post in my series that you've read I encourage you to go back and read up on the previous daily posts leading up to now.
After enjoying the nature around us yesterday you'd think that today's theme entailed more of the same as we're asked to take out the telescope.
Not the case.

My 11 day experience outlined by Jon Gordon in his book "The Positive Dog," has reached Day 7. In yesterday's post for Day 6 we were asked to share the gift of kindness.
Day 7 of the journey asks us to smell the roses. What exactly does that mean? 
In his book, Gordon cites that "according to Barbara Frederickson, author of "Positivity", research shows that spending time in nature boosts your positivity—especially when the weather is good. However, anyone who has been to the beach or taken a walk through a forest or spent time fishing on a lake knows how good … (0 comments)

 My 11 day experience outlined by Jon Gordon in his book "The Positive Dog," has reached Day 4.  In yesterday's post for Day 3 we were reminded of the power of smiling and laughter.  Day 4 of the journey asks us to celebrate a success of the day. 
Gordon's book explains that "according to sports psychologist Jim Fannin, the last 30 minutes of every waking day is recorded and replayed that night by our subconscious minds 15-17 times. This replay occurs 5 times more often than any other thought at any other time."
That's an amazing subconscious behavior to be aware of that … (1 comments)

In a post earlier this week I announced that I was joining a group of professionals from the GROW Business Network in experiencing the 11 day challenge outlined by Jon Gordon in his book "The Positive Dog."
Day 3 of the journey asks us to seek out more smiles and laughter.
Gordon cites that "children laugh about 400x a day while adults laugh only about 25x," and "research shows that smiling produces more serotonin in your brain and laughter reduces stress, increases your immune system and causes your body to release “feel good” endorphins."
Today's challenge is to seek out humor to cause laughter and smiling for at … (4 comments)
