January 24 (yesterday), 2013 a colleague sent our team an email and then took his life.

From the first week 20 years ago in 1999 when i began my Disney Speaking career, i felt compelled and obligated to always offer every audience a balance between Pixie Dust (our vision) and Reality.

It is good to frequently pause to recall the past.

Scott and i spent a good deal of time traveling domestically and internationally for some big clients.

Disney is not immune to unmagical things.

The A-Z list of things every organization struggles with, we do too.

That’s why my messages and context neutral Disney Business insights will help any person, at any level, in any industry.

Super excited to grow my impact in 2019.

Scott, you’d be proud.

PS. When working with Scott, the highest compliment you could receive from him was his Manhatten-influenced feedback, “That didn’t suck.”
