OPRAH!!!!  Oprah Winfrey is one of the most famous and powerful women in the world.  It’s amazing that she built her empire from the ground up and for the little people like us, it’s a huge inspiration!  I recently met her again for the first time in nearly 20 years and she hasn’t changed a bit – she’s super nice!  She was happy to take photos with a few fans (myself included) and rather than have a hands off approach towards her public (like so many famous people do), she art directed our mini-photo sessions with her!  She helped us get the best lighting to ensure our photos came out ok, and before moving on to the next person, she checked with everyone to make sure they got what they wanted.  TOO COOL!!!!  When you see Oprah on TV looking really down to earth, it’s not an act!  She couldn’t have been nicer and more friendly.  Thanks Oprah for truly being a class act!  I wish you could teach your manners and graciousness to so many people who will never even achieve a fraction of what you’ve accomplished.  Please never change!!!  As I told you in person, I will say it again – I love you!  Thanks again!!!

Happy Birthday, Oprah Winfrey

Happy birthday to talk show queen, Oprah Winfrey.  I admit it, I am not the biggest fan of her show, never have been and probably never will be.  But here’s what I like about Oprah:  after suffering abuse as a child, she decided that she was not going to use that as an excuse for the rest of her life as to why she could not succeed.  Instead, she used that as the reason TO succeed. I think that attitude is very inspiring!  Hopefully, nothing of that nature has or will happen to you, but if it does, sad as it sounds – what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!  Go Oprah!  Happy birthday!
