It was an honor and a privilege to be invited to the Big Apple to speak at the 1st annual Gratitude and Trust #140 Conference. Formatted similar to TEDTalks conferences, I was treated to a full day of insightful and educational talks on subjects related to wellness and personal empowerment. I was told that prior to our afternoon panel moderated by Paul Williams that the event was the #1 top trending event on Twitter. Thats pretty cool!

I got a sense that I met friends I will have for a lifetime. Visit www.gratitudeandtrust.com. Make a connection. You never know where it will take you….
I also met up with Brian Beckwith, a talented music producer out of Brooklyn. We ate and walked around Williamsburg – the evening was alive with summer sounds and colors! We are working on a summer remix of “Everyday’s A Sunday” featuring a rising star spoken word artist and Brian’s undeniable sonic touch. I’m excited!
