THE MESSAGE OF YOU begins with a simple belief - that your greatest speech already exists and that it has already been delivered in front of a live audience masterfully and powerfully by you. Best-selling author and international comic, Judy Carter sets out to prove that THE MESSAGE OF YOU is in the advice you give to your friends; in the lessons you teach your children; in the stories you tell your family. It's expressed through the volunteer work you do, the way you run your business, the way you turned your messes into successes. THE MESSAGE OF YOU is a distillation of all of your experiences, both personal and professional, that form the narrative meaning of your life. A meaning that you can develop into a well-written, funny speech to inspire audiences, enhance your current profession, and launch a successful money making career as a professional speaker.
As a companion to “The Message of You,” Judy Carter has created “The Message of You JOURNAL” -- a 21-Day Interactive Journal that will guide you to uncover the inspiring stories that occur in an ordinary day before they slip through your fingers. You don’t have to wait for dramatic life events to have a story that can turn into your TED talk, a memoir, blogs, TV appearances, and more. Nor, do you have to rely on funny things happening to have a story that will have an audience wiping tears from their eyes in laughter. In a seemingly ordinary day, there are hidden stories that contain laughs, drama, and a powerful message that can create a ripple effect of inspiration.
