Life of Yes℠ Storytelling Class

Especially geared for people who feel they don’t have any stories or who want support in unearthing their stories. Also geared towards folks who think public speaking, storytelling, sharing about themselves in front of others sounds like the worst thing ever.

This class meets once a week, for eight weeks, from 6:30-9:30pm.



WEBINAR - Life of Yes℠ Travel: Minimize Expense, Maximize Experience

Central Standard Time.  If you can’t join us live, you can still reap the goodness! Registrants will get a replay after the webinar concludes which’ll be available for two weeks to watch at your leisure.

Saya and Pete have traveled together, from Omaha to Oslo, since 2010. Taste-wise, she’s Four Seasons, he’s Motel 6; budget-wise, they’re somewhere in the middle. Light and frugal travel is their jam. Saya’s learned to pack everything in a carry-on, Pete’s learned that being pampered can be nice. Together they enjoy street-food, bike tours, and local recommendations you won’t find in guidebooks. They use their mutual love of spreadsheets and the latest apps to make on-the-road adventure a priority and an attainable reality.

This 60-minute webinar will help you travel within your budget. While other topics will be touched, the session is financially-focused. It includes philosophies and strategies, specific tips and tools, and Pete and Saya’s personal experiences. They’re all about transparency and sharing their knowledge.

Think your people would appreciate knowing about this? You can easily invite them and/or share via the Facebook Event.

Refund Policy: there are no refunds so please make sure you can join live or can watch the replay within the two week timeframe before you register.

Licensing Opportunity: Fear Experiment℠

The dates are meaningless here, just numbers that have to be plugged in to include in calendar. Rolling opportunity.

In Fear Experiment℠, as a way to challenge themselves and meet others, people learn an art-form (dance, storytelling, a capella, stepping, or improv) with a group of strangers, all of whom have an element of fear in regards to something about the experience, in preparation for performing in front of hundreds. The show is inspiring evening of people facing fears in the most public way possible — on stage, under the lights, in front of an oft-sold out theater. It’s an adult recital x10000.

After six years, 350+ participants, 6700+ audience members, Fear Experiment℠ (FE) Chicago ended Fall 2016. Read why here.

But, if you live outside of Chicago — the suburbs, another state, another country — and you’d like to bring FE to you, you can!
