Life knocked her off her heels more than once, but she landed on her feet. You may not want to stand too close to Kelly Standing, but you will want to read this veteran speechwriter's inspiring story in her own words. Sometimes startling. Frequently funny. Totally true.
Kelly Standing is an award-winning speaker, speechwriter and coach. She lives in Chicago, a childhood dream come true. When she doesn't have a microphone under her chin, she often has a bicycle under her bum or a theater ticket in her hand and almost always ... a smile on her face.
Kelly is a gifted writer - witty, funny and she knows how to tell a story.
The Introduction prepares you for one great reading experience, so like the book tells you on the intro page "Don't skip this!! IT'S IMPORTANT!"
Kelly Standing has a great way of making one be at peace with adversity by her example of the way she has lead her life......... always smiling!
