Are you looking for a little more happiness in your life? A boost of energy? Some inspiration? A jolt of good, plain fun?
Well look no further! On Wednesday, February 20th, Jackie will be speaking with Kellie Poulsen-Grill on Solo Pro Radio. Kellie is a happiness expert, motivational speaker, author, and songwriter, and she has studied and researched the effects of happiness and positive attitude for over 27 years. She decided at age ten that she would choose to be happy no matter what, and now she works with individuals who want more happiness in life and employers who want happier, more productive employees. Check out her website here!
The story of Kellie’s journey is truly inspiring: she grew up in Salt Lake City and moved to Los Angeles with her twin sister to model and act right after high school. After an exciting year in LA, they went to Dixie College back in Utah to take music courses, and then packed up and headed to Nashville where they pursued songwriting and helped run a major music publishing company.
Then, in 2000, Kellie’s life changed. You can read the beautiful story of her marriage to husband Dave Grill in Send Me a Sign, the critically-acclaimed non-fiction love story written by Kellie, Dave, and journalist-turned-ESPN reporter Doug Binder. The book was published by Kellie and Dave’s publishing company, Whirlwind Publishing and Speaking Services (take a look at their website!) in 2005. In 2009, she published an audiobook called Happiness is Here: Simple Strategies for Staying Happy and started calling herself “the whirlwind woman”!
Now Kellie is a proud member of the National Speaker Association and a past president of the NSA’s Oregon chapter. She speaks around the nation on a variety of topics, including love, loss, parenting, songwriting, publishing, and achieving greatness after the loss of a loved one. Kellie is also the chairperson for Oregon Horse Country, and she and Dave live on a horse ranch called Whirlwind Ranch. In 2012, she created her Happy Success retreats, held with various happiness, joy, productivity, and horse therapy specialists at the ranch. And she will soon be a bestselling author with her chapter, titled “Happiness is Mandatory,” in the August 2013 release of the eWomenNetwork book Succeeding Against All Odds, which will feature pieces from many other women entrepreneurs, along with Sandra Yancey, Ken Kragen and other big authors.
You don’t want to miss Kellie’s exciting, inspiring, and joy-filled story. Tune in to Solo Pro Radio at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST on Wednesday, February 20th (or any time after!) and dramatically increase your happiness quotient!
