No Bullying Zone! with Tom Thelen and Miss Taya Simpson

February 21, 2017:  We are delighted to be joined by Public Speaker, Tom Thelen, the Founder of the Victimproof Bullying Prevention Program. As one of America’s top youth motivational speakers, he has spoken at over 500 schools, colleges, and youth organizations. His message helps schools create a positive culture and shows students how to BE THE CHANGE. Tom has been featured on FOX, CBS, PBS, The National Association of Student Councils, The National Honor Society, as well as Student Conferences for 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, and YMCA.

In 2005, Tom completed his bachelor’s degree and began working at a non-profit youth organization where he honed his skills as a youth speaker and began writing his first book, TEEN LEADERSHIP REVOLUTION. Since the publishing of his second book, VICTIMPROOF, he has become a leading voice in preventing bullying and creating a positive school climate.

Tom’s anti-bullying school assembly program takes students on a journey through his own life story – a normal “face in the crowd” kid who never struggled with drugs or alcohol, but instead lived with a victim mindset. Thankfully one teacher stepped in and helped him break free from the bullying cycle. Today, Tom travels America showing students how to stand up to bullying and how to “BE THE CHANGE” on their campus.

Cultivating an Open Heart: Valentines Day special with Robert V. Taylor

Robert V. Taylor joins us for a Valentines Day Special to help us cultivate an open heart.  We will focus on love that goes far beyond the romantic realm. Diving deeply into his story, Robert’s anti-apartheid work led him to refuse to be drafted into the South Africa Military which was compulsory for all white males.  Such a refusal comes with life imprisonment! Faced with the label of being a “traitor” or a “collaborator” he knew he could not accept that apartheid was “the will of God.” “I went to see Archbishop Desmond Tutu for advice on how to survive imprisonment. Instead, he told me that I would not go to jail, but that he would arrange for me to leave the country.” 10 days later Robert arrived in New York City and began graduate work that deepened his life’s calling to help people experience a oneness with others grounded in compassion, love and mercy.  Robert is President of the New York based Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation and lives on a rural farm in the Pacific Northwest. He has dedicated his life to helping individuals and organizations live beyond their limitations. He challenges leaders to live beyond the fears and self-assessments that hold them hostage. Robert is the voice of a generation empowered by the potential of living beyond the restrictions of labels. He is passionate about helping people find a deeper connection to themselves and the world at large. Author of A New Way to Be Human, Robert shares his own struggles and global journeys as an example of what is possible when we all live beyond labels.

Get Jolly with Allen Klein

11008474_10152920542081270_5641135454825676223_nSeptember 8, 2015 – Ever met a man who can earn himself a speeding ticket and then continue on his way in high spirits?

There’s a reason Allen Klein can do that – he does not give away his power to other people.

That’s what ruins our days and, in some cases, our lives.

In his book, You Can’t Ruin My Day, 52 Ways to Turn Any Situation Around, Allen provides tools and suggestions for getting over it.

Do you want to be right? Or do you want to be happy?

Allen’s ideas, however, aren’t just about sloughing off the traffic violation or the dog poo on the bottom of your shoe.

He speaks about grief, moving forward, gratitude, and humor during tough times.

After losing his wife at 34 to a rare disease, Allen dedicated his life to the art of finding joy. He teaches that tears are inevitable in life, but there is also humor, joy, and immense gratitude to be experienced.

We have to ask ourselves – what is going to win? The anger? The sorrow? The alcoholism? The hurtful opinions of others?

We can be grateful for not only what is going right in our lives but also for the not so great stuff.

There is much wisdom in this interview and tons more in Allen’s books.

Formal Bio:

Ever hear of a “Jollytologist®”? Well meet the world’s one and only Allen Klein. Through his books and his presentations, Klein shows people worldwide how to deal with everything from traffic jams to tragedies.  Allen Klein got into this unusual line of work after his wife died of a rare liver disease at the age of 34. He saw how humor helped her, and those around her, cope. He also saw how humor helped him get through that loss. He now teaches others how to find some in trying times. Those audiences include people in 48 states as well as Israel and Australia, and clients from IBM to the IRS.

Klein is an award-winning speaker and best-selling author. He is the recipient of a Toastmasters Communication and Leadership Award and a Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association. (Less than 800 of its 4,000 members have this honor.) Klein has authored, among other books, The Healing Power of Humor, Quotations to Cheer You Up, Up Words for Down Days, and The Courage to Laugh. The first book, The Healing Power of Humor, shows people how to use humor to deal with everyday trials and tribulations; the latter book, The Courage to Laugh, documents how people have used humor to triumph over tragedy.  Klein has a master’s degree in humor from St. Mary’s College in Minnesota (and that’s no joke!) And he is well suited to his subject. Years before becoming a “Jollytologist®”, Klein was nicknamed the “King of Whimsy” because he designed all the children shows at CBS television in New York City. Among those productions was one you probably remember the Captain Kangaroo show.  Although no longer working in the light-hearted world of children, Klein still believes that adults need to take a lesson from them and lighten up. To help adults do this, Klein is both the editor of The Mid-Month Mirth Memo e-zine, founder of International Mirth Month (every March), and President-elect of the Association of Applied and Therapeutic Humor (
