^ (1) Vote for My Talented Colleagues Betsy Rosenberg, Donna Sonkin
& Andrea Beaman in Oprah’s Host-Your-Own-TV-Show Contest on
OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network)
Oprah_beta You may have heard that Oprah and TV producer Mark Burnett have been inviting people from around the country to apply for the Your OWN Show video competition.
(Just in case you don’t know, Burnett has received accolades for introducing competition-based reality TV show to the United States. (He’s the one behind “Survivor” and “The Apprentice.”)
Anyhow, Oprah and Mark are looking for the next great TV talk show host to appear on Oprah’s new network, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network).
Betsy Rosenberg Many talented people have applied, but in particular, I invite you to immediately check out the videos submitted by my talented colleagues/friends Betsy Rosenberg, Donna Sonkin and Andrea Beaman.
Then vote for them if you like what they submitted.
(I’m sure you’ll love what they did!)
Please watch their short videos now – and then cast your vote.
First, I urge you to watch Betsy Rosenberg. She’s truly amazing. She’s like the Eco Queen — in other words, she was a pioneer in the go-green movement, who was talking about recycling when many of us didn’t know what it was. (OK, I’m exaggerating a bit.) Betsy has an amazing background, too.
Please watch Betsy’s video now and vote for her:
Donna_sonkin Donna Sonkin — she’s a talented, funny, charming friend from IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition). It’s been wonderful to watch her collect a following for her fabulous work to help women get Thin for the Camera.
Watch Donna’s video and then vote for her:
And then I urge to see another wonderful woman in action.
Andrea_Beaman Please view the video from Andrea Beaman, who I met because she taught at IIN. You may recognize Andrea from her “Top Chef” appearances. She’s personable, funny and dynamic, too.
Here’s Andrea’s video. Make sure to vote now for her, too.

^ (2) Why You Can’t Find My Video for the Your OWN Show
Competition (Yes, I’d Love My OWN TV Show, But…)
Many of you have asked me whether or not I applied for Oprah’s competition and where you could find my video. You can’t find my video, because I never submitted one. Let me tell you why.
First of all, I gave this very serious consideration. I even developed a fascinating concept for my own TV show. (In fact, I’m really excited about my idea for a show, which I’ve never seen anywhere.)
But after reviewing the guidelines for the Your OWN Show Video Competition, I realized – regretfully – that I just could not apply right now.
Hay House images Here’s why: As I announced here last week, I just got a deal for my next book from Hay House, the leader in self-help and transformational publishing.
I’m very excited, honored and committed to writing the best book that can help, I hope, millions of people, break free of their sugar addiction for good.
Amazon Sug Sh 51RDZ7DBVAL._SL110_ As I studied the submission guidelines, I realized that if I had been fortunate enough to be selected as a finalist that I just wouldn’t have had ample time to commit to it. (You need to be able to leave town to compete for 6 weeks.)
In addition, another guideline gave me pause. It said that if you have another contractual obligation that may interfere, you should not apply. That was the line that ultimately stopped me from applying. (I’m days away from signing my contract with Hay House, and I’ll be in writing mode as the contest cranks up.)
Anyhow, I’m not about to jeopardize my book deal with Hay House. Work wise, that must be my priority. And I’m having a blast so far writing it.
So, even though I’d very much like my own TV show on OWN (or elsewhere), the time isn’t right.
But I’m still hanging onto my idea, because it would make for a great TV show. And my intention is to make it happen – but not while I’m on book deadlines.
Right now, I need to finish researching and writing my book. Speaking of which, would you please help me name my new book?

^ (3) Is Your Summer Intention to Find Love? My Friend Lauren
Frances Wants to Help You Single Ladies Become Engaged by New Year’s Eve
Lauren frances007 With summer here, it’s time get clear on your intentions. For those of you females who are seeking the love of your life, I recommend that you pay attention. (For the rest of you, please skip to the next item, in which I encourage you to vote for the title of my next book.)
If you’re a single lady, my friend Lauren Frances wants to help you. She wants to turn you into a “Dating Lovebird.”
Actually, if you’re a single lady who wants to be married, Lauren – a renowned celebrity love coach, who has been praised by actresses Amy Brenneman and Kate Walsh – wants to help you become engaged by New Year’s Eve.
Kate_walsh9 In fact, Lauren claims that in 6 short weeks, she’ll teach you to turn casual courtships into serious commitments.
You’ll learn her breakthrough ‘man-manifesting’ process and healthy manhandling techniques (i.e. relationship skills) to which successful men RESPOND.
You can jump into this course whether you’re actively dating or not, or really want to be!
“Dating Lovebirds,” Lauren says, will show you how to go from flirting to seriously dating, and how to do partnership potential tests so you’ll stop wasting your time on what she calls “the 70% suitors.” (You know, the guys who ultimately waste your time because they’re not really the right guy?)
To learn about Lauren’s program so you can (according to her) get engaged by New Year’s Eve, go here:
Lauren’s claim that she can help you get engaged by New Year’s Eve may seem far fetched, but just listen to one of her clients:
“Lauren, Thank you! Thank you! Your coaching got me from a first date to my honeymoon in just 3 months. Literally, we left for our Bermuda honeymoon on 5/27/10, which was three months to the day of our first date. Many thanks to you for the great velocity with which I was able to classify my NEEDS vs WANTS and recognize the man of my dreams the minute I met him. Love Linda”
(Linda didn’t want her full name used, because her new husband is the head of a Fortune 500 company and doesn’t know she has a love coach. Her story is so powerful because Linda is in her early 50’s, had never been married before. She wasn’t dating much for years before Lauren helped her. While her betrothal might seem super fast, her romantic results are not unusual, or even the exception, for Lauren’s students. Lauren believes that once you get the right information under your garter belt, and know the right actions to take to make your romantic dreams a loving reality, you’ll have your very own lovebird, too.)
Single and eager to learn more now?
Here’s some of what you’ll learn in Lauren’s course:
* How to spot ‘buying signs’ that he’s serious about dating you.
* Relationship Negotiation Skills to go from dating to commitment.
* How to rate his ‘Courtship Performance.’
* How long to give your dates a ‘chance’ when you’re not sure if there’s chemistry, or connection.
* How to spot when men are seriously pursuing the relationship.
* How to not get boxed in by one suitor until you’re SURE about him.
* How to inspire men to commit to you and your relationship goals.
* How to put men in a pecking order without ruffling their feathers
* How to tell when men are in ‘buying mode’ with you romantically, and falling in love with you.
* How to keep your freedom to keep shopping for The One when you’re just having fun
* How to turn a serious dating relationship into a serious commitment.
* How to tell if he’s a player who will only disappoint you down the road.
* How to stay committed to your romantic roadmap and MANifest it.

^ (4) Please Vote for the Name of My Next Book – The
Follow-Up to Sugar Shock – Everyone Who Enters Competition

^ (6) I’m Biking for Charity: Would You Donate, Please, to the
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society? (My Team In Training (TNT) Bike Ride)
One of my intentions this summer is to get amazingly fit and toned (better than I am now) – and help a worthwhile cause at the same time.
Therefore, I’ve joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training’s program.
It’s an amazing program, where we get the support of coaches and fitness trainers, meet great people and at the same time raise money for this worthwhile organization.
My goal is to bike 100 miles on Oct. 9 in the Seagull Century ride in Maryland. (Gulp! The most I’ve ever gone is about 35 to 40 miles. But they assure me that the training will make me more than ready.)
Anyhow, I invite you to make a donation – no matter how small.
All of your donations will go directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I urge you to donate now.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Have a sweet week.
