Burnt Toast and Jam Book Featured on Fox 6

"Burnt Toast & Jam" -- "I LOVE this book!" exclaimed Kim Murphy,TV-Fox 6 as we began the interview on her Wake Up morning segment this past week. I was invited in by Fox 6 to discuss our new book. Kim was awesome. Her excitement and enthusiasm on "Burnt Toast & Jam" spilled over as she actually read excerpts to viewers and shared the value of its content for achieving personal happiness. The sound man was even excited about it afterward so I gave him my extra copy and he then asked for my autograph. I also answered many questions from the receptionist afterwards, she was pumped up and excited as she shared she was going to recommend her friends use "Burnt Toast & Jam" for their book club. To all my new friends at Fox-6, Thank you!

Got Stress?

A whole new market has opened up for our "Laugh & Live Your Dreams" program. We've spoken at community wellness programs, company transition events, awards banquets, and womens Expos-- for those it always received high ratings. In November, Mercy Medical Center, Iowa, requested that program for their all-staff 400 person hospital retreat. We are just thrilled to have received this letter and wanted to share it with you. A huge thanks to Stacie for her letter! After the program the Director of the Cancer Center was presented with a supply of Kinza's "Chuckle Bags" to give patients undergoing chemotherapy.

"Kinza presented her “Laugh and Live Your Dreams” program for our annual Kailobration celebration at Mercy Medical Center – North Iowa. We wanted to provide stress relief and tools for professional achievement and personal happiness for our hospital employees. Kinza filled and exceeded all expectations. She was able to engage the audience and move them to action (literally – she had them dancing the aisles!). The vision of her in her dance costume, entering to music was just the beginning of an interactive, wonderful program.

Kinza is a true professional speaker. Behind the scenes, as we put this program together, Kinza was very responsive to my requests. She also went the extra mile digging up interesting tid-bits about our community and incorporating this information into her presentation.

Employees are still talking about how much fun they had and how inspiring it was watching Kinza live her dream. They found Kinza’s program to be motivating and uplifting, in a way they had not experienced before. Our construction coordinator summed-up Kinza’s presentation best when he stopped by my office to tell me “he hasn’t laughed that much in years!”

If you are looking for a presentation that is fun, motivating and educational, Kinza is the speaker for you!"
