SOAPBOX Officially Goes Live!

I’ve been known as “The Soapbox Queen” for years now.  Seizing any opportunity to create a stage-for-one, I’ve crafted a signature way to motivate, entertain and educate folks with but a single weapon: quotes.  My unique, compelling formula of commentary and dialogue taps the power of profundity and insight often overlooked in quotes.  But I needed a word to encapsulate this concept, so I coined the term SOAPBOX™ and got to work to bringing it to life by bringing it to people however they’ll best dig it…in a book, in a blog, in an online talk show, you name it!

In a nutshell… a SOAPBOX™ is motivation with a swift kick in the pants that dares you to step away from conventional band-aid therapy and hopeful horoscopes, and embrace the forward-thinking wisdom of the most influential people of our time. The SOAPBOX™ blog is the first step to the release of a special collection I’ve created for my upcoming book, Pure Soapbox  …a cleansing jolt of perspective, motivation and humor. It’s my way to connect with folks from all walks of life, from all over the world -even before the book launches! So…without further ado, I give you the premiere SOAPBOX™ of the Week:


“A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.”     – Thomas Jefferson

Even the most easy-going of folks get riled up over things that simply don’t make sense or make life more complicated.  When “That’s just the way it goes” doesn’t cut it anymore, perhaps it’s time to show some muscle.  Start your own revolution.  Let ‘em know you’re not asleep at the wheel nor a spoke in it.   Voice your opinion.  Blaze your own path.  Bend the rules.  Don’t do what Dad says.  Order off the menu.  Park in that reserved spot.  Play hooky.  Heck, quit altogether!  It’s ok to buck the system that’s got you jumping through hoops.  Confronting the powers that be will reinstate your own guiding principles and might bring freedom to a fellow inflamed citizen.
