Have you heard of the

Women’s Speaker’s Association

 The WSA has been a great source of support and resource for me – and it’s also where I’ve made some great connections, including today’s guest. Christy Primmer is a speaker, author, coach, counselor – even spelling bee champion! - and she is a pro. She brings her sassy self to the stage, mastering the art of taking about tough subjects with finesse and care.

CHRISTY:  A TED Talk by Stacey Kramer - "The Best Gift I Ever Survived." A beautiful talk filled with truth and vulnerability. Stacey carries herself with class:

SALLY:  The past few weeks have been about me sneaking in time to finally watch Making a Murderer on Netflix. If you're one of the few people who haven't seen it yet, you probably aren't interested in it.  It's definitely one of those shows that sort of sticks with you... it's a powerful story about the justice system, poverty, power, the media. Whatever the truth is, it's a horrible story.

But - creatively I wanted to point out that the show opening montage is beautifully done - mysterious, haunting, artistic. It sucks me in every time! (Which is exactly what it's supposed to do, I suppose!)

Dr. Nick Morgan (a guest on This Moved Me) created the Presentation Prep Course. It's like having Nick coach you - which is no small thing! Nick is the ultimate pro - and I myself have walked through this course. It's so incredibly helpful and full of insight and tools. If you are prepping for a presentation and can't afford the costly hours of hiring someone live - check out this e-course!

And, I cannot forget the editing geniuses at We Edit Podcasts! They are so on the ball.  Just last week I hadn't heard from my editor - which was strange - and so I sent an email expressing my concern. I got a phone call back from the FOUNDER, assuring me all was well. That's what I call service. Please trust me - I have saved so many hours by having these folks take on the nit-picky task of editing my shows for me. If you have a podcast - or want to create a podcast - this is sooooo worth it.
