Linda believes that too many of us keep the joy buried inside. She fears that keeping laughter bottled up can cause a condition known as “humorrhoids.” This can lead to terminal seriousness.
Linda has first hand knowledge of this condition. At one point, when things were not going well in her life, Linda found a whole new meaning to the term “personal growth.” Unfortunately, the growth was a result of using food as a way to cope with life’s disappointments. She grazed constantly and piled excess poundage on a frame that was not meant to carry that much weight. It soon became apparent to Linda that things were not getting any better. She now had to deal with the problems that come with obesity. Her health, relationships and work began to suffer. Spiraling down into a major depression, she hit an economical and emotional low of sleeping on the floor of a vacant house.
The day Linda realized she needed to reset her mental channel was the day she began to heal. When she made up her mind to focus on the possibilities of the future, instead of making excuses and wallowing in the past, Linda began to find a healthy balance in the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of life. She turned her life around, built a business, wrote a few books, lost 135 pounds and became committed to helping others achieve an attitude of altitude, in order to be the best they can be, personally and professionally.
Linda has come to be known for her bag of toys, her banjo, her pig brief case and her smiles-on-sticks, among other things. Her keynotes and playshops inspire audiences to dig up their funny bones and take themselves lightly in order to achieve new heights. Even the most terminally serious will leave her programs with a new appreciation of the power of positive attitude and laughter. She tailors her programs to meet the needs of each individual group. She educates and entertains. Her blend of humor, music and truelife stories inspire audiences, whether she is talking to college kids about self esteem or hard core executives about increasing the bottom line
