It’s true… I lost my karaoke virginity to a John Denver tune in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was a week before his tragic death in 1997.

The song was “Take Me Home, Country Roads” — which happened to be one of my late grandmother’s favorite songs (being that she grew up in West Virginia of course). There was also some Neil Diamond involved, but perhaps those scandalous details are best left for another time.

In any case, it turns out that I’m headed to Colorado this weekend. Boulder to be exact.

I’m honored to be giving a six-minute TEDxBoulder talk entitled “Psychotherapy for Community” — where I will reveal some secret sauce on how to better manage your community, run your business and ultimately transform your life.

Hope to see you there.


  • Your talk was excellent! I was telling my mom about it. Could you remind me what the book was called that you referred to about relationships? Thanks so much!

  • Thanks much for the kind feedback Kaleena…

    The first book I referenced was John Gottman’s “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.”
