Motivational Speaker And Actor On How to Sound Spontaneous

By Linda Larsen - Thursday, October 22, 2015
Featured Image

Yes, I am a motivational speaker now, but for over twenty-five years I was a professional card-carrying actor in film, television and on stages throughout the U.S. As an actor, it was my job to make my words sound as if I was saying them for the very first time – even when, in the case of a live stage production, it was the 100th time I'd said them. How does that happen? How do actors do that? When you, as an audience member, attend a live show, what makes you suspend your disbelief and go full tilt boogie into the world that is laid before you on the stage?

I'm a motivational speakerby profession, which means my job is to help you get what you want out of life.

The Million Dollar Secret to Business Success

By Linda Larsen - Sunday, June 08, 2014
Featured Image

I am pitiful when it comes to hanging on to prescription glasses. Absolutely pitiful. In the last month I bought FOUR pair of prescription glasses. One for distance, one for reading and two sunglasses. And in the same month, I lost BOTH pair of the sunglasses - one on an airplane (motivational speakers fly a LOT!) and the other one, I think, grew legs and ran away from home. Regardless, yesterday it was time to go BACK to Lenscrafters and get another pair of prescription sunglasses. I was not happy. I did not want to spend more money. I was grinding my teeth all the way there.
