Would you say that to someone you love? No. So stop saying that to yourself.

Hi from Berlin! I’m here for a series of masterclasses on English songwriting, communication and pronunciation. I love what I do so much and I’m so fortunate that I get to do it in different places. Berlin is my second favorite city in the world (NY is number 1) and I just love working here […]

It’s been a mad crazy wonderful week. I was honored to host the Celebrate the Changemakers event in Amsterdam, where sustainable entrepreneurs from around the world shared their stories on why we all need to think about impact when it comes to doing business. I introduced each speaker with a poem I wrote especially for […]

Welcome to Buffiland! (Or ‘Your Head vs Reality’)

What’s happening inside your head, sweetie? Do you even know what’s going on there? Well, let me tell you about Buffiland. I kind of live there. I love it there. Buffiland is a place full of magic and wonder. Negative concepts like calories, racism, and jealousy do not exist. We’ve got gin and tonic waterfalls, […]

Thank you.

I jumped. And you caught me. Thank you.

Happy Easter Monday! Maybe I should start calling it Eater instead of Easter. Because my body is truly about 68% chocolate at this point. But still. It’s lovely living in a country where you get an ENTIRE EXTRA DAY to eat chocolate. And if you live somewhere where Easter is celebrated only on Sunday, I can guarantee you […]

This is your head.

Your ears know a lot, but your mouth? Not so much.

Happy Monday! (Oh, and if you think Mondays suck, it probably means that your job sucks. Mondays are great.) It happened again last week while I was coaching in Utrecht.  “My English is really good – I never need subtitles when I watch a movie. But for some reason I just can’t seem to find the […]

I have never felt more special in my life.

What Going Viral Feels Like (3 million views later)

Wow. I mean wow. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, a 14-second film I made at the end of my coaching session last week went viral. We arenow at 3 million views and counting. What happened? I’ve been working with Tuffie Vos for a while, as she is a brilliant voiceover talent (among other things she’s […]

The 10 Things That Happen To Me Every Time I Write A Book (because I just did)

I did it. I just did it. (When I say ‘just’, I mean ‘just’ as in time – I just finished, as opposed to the ‘just’ which makes it seem like it was easy to do. It mostly wasn’t.) I just finished my 3rd book. I’m so proud. So relieved. So tired. And sooooo excited! […]

The Way To The Why

When I start with a new client or teach a new class, I usually start with how I see communication. I see it in lots of different ways but one of them shines through again and again. It’s a 3-layer picture. I suck at drawing, so let me show you with my words. The top, […]
