If you read my blag, you already know about the tweaks I am doing with the lounge. But in case you don’t, I’m going to tell you, Lounging with LannaLee has a new mission. It’s just like the old mission, but explicated.
Lounging with LannaLee’s mission is:
To make a difference through adventurous conversation.
We (my guests and I) want to make the world a better place.
To do this, starting with the podcast that will be published on Thursday July 25th, we will start every conversation with two questions:
- How can we as a society make the world a better place?
- How do you make the world a better place? (Can you? Will you?)
It will be a Lounging with LannaLee Think Tank! Woo Hoo!
The thing is, I realized recently that Lounging with LannaLee is already making a difference. We are making the world better. We are having conversations about tough issues, life and death, love and loss, finding our power, walking our walk, saving the earth, and healing with a sword. We are seeing the good with the bad. We are laughing our cares away. We are having adventurous, real conversations that HELP PEOPLE.
Here are but a few examples:
- LLL063 published on 5/30/2013: me and my pal Ida talk about Love and Loss and Life and Death – a heart to heart conversation full of fantastic belly laughter. That conversation with Ida encouraged me to Walk my Walk.
- LLL054 published on 3/28/2013: my friend Elizabeth talks about her work with families who have children with autism, and her passion for helping women find their power, and she wonders “What in the Hell was I Thinking!” Again, there were belly laughs.
- LLL003 published on 3/15/2012: lest you think only recent lounges make a difference, you should take a listen to my conversation with Julie Woods – who will be achieving world domination through love. (Don’t doubt her, people). When I was done with that conversation, I thought I could do ANYTHING. And: Belly Laughs!
- LLL024 published on 08/30/2012: My conversation with Steve Trombulak we talk about how he and his partner helped a village in Ghana make their drums speak again. We also discussed how to help the ecology: it’s not just about hugging the earth hard enough. (We laughed too.)
- LLL067 published on 07/05/2013: When I saw Angela Shelton speak at the #140You conference about how she healed herself after a traumatic childhood, I laughed so hard, I knew I had to get her for the show. She and I had a fantastic conversation on the streets of New York City about her journey and how doing a documentary (where she went around the country meeting a bunch of women named Angela Shelton) changed her life.
I want to keep this going. Let’s keep helping people. Now I’m stacking the decks a bit.
