Saying "Yes" to Life

Out of the Fog

July 08, 20242 min read

After a difficult divorce, David embraced a year of saying "Yes" to life, opening doors to extraordinary opportunities like speaking in front of Congress. Adopting a "Yes, and" mindset, he encourages others to unlock their true potential by overcoming fears and stepping into leadership roles. Download his free guide, "5 Surprising Myths About Public Speaking," to start your own transformational journey. Stay tuned for a special project coming in fall 2024!

Applying this "Yes, and" mindset opened doors I never knew existed. From spontaneous adventures in Europe to unexpected opportunities that included speaking in front of Congress and the President; I started experiencing life in ways I had never imagined. By saying "Yes" and embracing the unknown, I discovered my truest potential.

I know many of us are facing our own struggles right now. It's during these times that adopting the "Yes, and" approach can truly transform our lives. By embracing the power of "Yes" and the art of public speaking, we can unlock new potentials and become the leaders we're meant to be.

21  Days to Saying Yes to Life

Fear has a way of holding us all back, and sometimes it just takes someone to give us the courage to pursue what might feel impossible. Many people feel that they aren’t “leaders” or that they aren’t inspirational, but I am a great believer that we all have something to share with the world. Now, more than ever, we need to rise and become the persons we were meant to be.

I’m working on a very special project that I plan to unveil in the fall of 2024, and I can’t wait for you to join me on this journey. In the meantime, I created a tiny (it’s very tiny but succinct and to the point) guide called "5 Surprising Myths About Public Speaking" to help you allay your fears about stepping into your power. This guide will debunk common misconceptions and provide valuable insights into mastering the art of public speaking and sharing your message with the world...or, just to get your spouse to do the dishes and take out the trash. Small victories matter.

Get your guide now!

The world needs the best version of you. By confronting our fears and stepping into the role of paving a better way forward, we can make an incredible impact. Let's start harnessing the power of "Yes, and" together.

Face your fears, and join me in embracing the journey of becoming our greatest selves. I look forward to sharing this next step of my journey with you.

Stay tuned!

With optimism and encouragement,
