Gong Show creator, songwriter and novelist – Chuck Barris gave the nation unique shows that forever changed the landscape of television.  Mark recalls a hilarious episode of Barris’s The Newlywed Game where a most embarrassing revelation occurred for a couple.  Shannon Ryan will undoubtedly write and direct highly informative and entertaining films in the future though now as a shinning graduate student at Brooklyn College’s Barry R. Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema and recipient of Woman of Her Word Disabilities scholarship (awarded by Michele Spitz), Shannon explains how she is furthering her vast skill set that includes incorporating her keen perspective and resiliency as an indomitable woman with multiple disabilities including hearing and visual impairments.  Plus, why it’s healthy to step out of ones comfort zone even if it risks embarrassment – or in Mark’s case, the inability to see bowling pins for the sake of a good time. And meet Julia – Sesame Street’s new muppet who is on the Autism spectrum.

Kyle Mendelson is taking the temperature of our nation by traveling to over a dozen US cities to meet with politicians, educators and more in an effort to better understand perspectives and motives in regions that voted number forty-five.  From the cockpit to ticket handlers and everyone between – the significance of the women of Air India who circumnavigated the world.   

 

Why do so many parents foot the bill so their college kid can fly off to warmer climates along with other spring breakers for a week of debauchery?  And how the oh so modern Catholic church amended lent guidelines permitting corned beef consumption on St. Patrick’s “Friday”.

“Mark Farrell presented at our school during The Week of Respect. The students were captivated by his motivating message on perseverance, diversity, and anti-bullying. Our students remained engaged throughout his presentation as he has perfected speaking to students at their developmental level. Mark was flexible to work with and was able to engage with students on a large array of topics. My students greatly benefited from hearing the message that with hard work, diligence, and never giving up on yourself, your dreams can become your reality. I would highly recommend Mark Farrell to any school looking for a highly motivating speaker”

What helps you get over someone…endless Ben & Jerry’s, wine, yoga, wine, frolicking with puppies???  Renew, an upstate N.Y. retreat for those in need of an escape and help mending their shattered heart can help.  Plus, there’s nothing like getting over someone with another someone! When I gave a talk on mental illness to N.J. State health professionals recently, I was approached by a man who was captivated by my candid experience and now is organizing a support group for men since he had wished one existed when he was experiencing depression. Dancin weekdays are here…Daybreaker’s (www.daybreaker.com) “beatz up” mornings with pre-work yoga and wildly fun dance parties (minus the booze) in coveted venues in U.S. cities and around the world. No need for pumps or the gym – dance, sweat, apply deodorant liberally and off to work you go with a smile.

“Mark’s motivation and passion comes from personal stories on overcoming adversity, abuse of drugs and alcohol and a target of bullying when he was in high school.  Students were on the edge of their seats and parents commented on how important it was for them to hear Mark’s message before sending their kids off to high school. Powerful, personal, and funny motivational speaker with a unique and inspirational story for parents and students.”
