SORT BY Relevancy
Many moons ago - before the invention of Ritalin or the Internet - a young, broke college student named Roberto Antonio Smiley signed up for a stand-up competition at his Student Union Building. The prize money was $500, which was nearly 5 months rent for the "efficiency" closet Smiley was living in at the time. Though he had never stepped on a stage, and the only prior laughs he had gotten were due to his colossal leprechaun ears, he went for the gold. When he arrived, his only competition was a grown man wearing an oversized sombrero with no act... so... he won the money and the tender hearts of his fellow students. The rest is history.
Since that incredibly average performance, Roberto shortened his name to "Bob" and started a caffeine-induced tour spreading laughter and gaiety to the masses. As a novice jokester, Smiley honed his talents as the merch-managing MC for bands like Newsboys, Third Day, and Mercy Me. This exposure, along with the fact that his act had the word "booger" in it three times, led to a swarm of goatee'd youth leaders begging Smiley to come entertain their sugar-high kid herds. He was forced to match their manic energy and soon developed a machine gun approach to comedy. Sixteen years later, Bob is now one of the nation's most in-demand and hilarious clean comedians. And he absolutely loves his job, no matter how many times his father challenges its legitimacy as a career choice...

I have long called February LOVE MONTH! There is something about that Hallmark Holiday, Valentine's Day that I feel very fond of. Anytime where love becomes the focus, our hearts become the focus and people are drawn closer to each other, I'm all in!
What do you think about when you think about love? I think of God. I think of family & friends. I think of my favorite episodes of the Golden Girls! We probably all think of different things. But tell me this, do you ever think about how you do or don't show love to yourself? How do you think about yourself? What thoughts do you hold? What behaviors do you show? I want to talk about it. Join me today on The Smiley Notes.
INTERVIEWING THE DIVAS
Join Diva Candace Gish as she speaks with other fascinating, Entrepreneurial Divas, from many worlds.
My name is Candice Smiley and I am a serial entrepreneur. I currently have a successful event planing business called Create the Ripple Events (www.candicesmiley.com). It's an event management company that works to promote events with positive ripple effects. I also have a successful network marketing business that allows me to feel the freedom of a residual income because I love building teams. I understand the power of referrals and the power of a team and I run both of my companies 100% by referral.
So the question you are wondering is "why would I listen in?"
Are you someone who has trouble "filling the seats" for your events? Do you have trouble bringing in customers but the the thought of planing an event seems daunting and expensive? Awesome. Listen in. I know from personal life experience how to increase sales, attendance, and customer retention. Oh, and have fun while you are doing it.
Maybe it's going to networking meetings and mixers - do you struggle to know what to say or wonder how to approach people? Awesome, listen in. I'll give you some ideas to use to effectively maximize the current events happening already in your area to expand your network and influence.
I'll also share the books I've read that helped me on my own personal journey so you can inspire yourself long after we're done chatting.
Ten years ago we were introduced to Susan Smiley, her mother Millie and her sister Tina. Out of the Shadow was produced and directed by Susan. Premiering in 2005, it provided an unprecedented insight into her mother's serious mental illness, her own journey and how she and her sister have coped. The response to the film was enormous, receiving wide-spread press coverage. It continues to be required viewing in many university courses and graduate schools of public health, psychiatry, social work and nursing. It has received many awards, been translated into 12 languages and has been viewed countless times on PBS stations across the country. Tonight, we speak with Susan. She'll reflect on how the film impacted her life since she went public with her very personal and painful story. We will also discuss her current activities and interests.
