What Kelly Swanson Talks About:

Who Hijacked My Fairy Tale? Finding the balance between the life you envisioned, and the life you got

We all reach potholes in the yellow brick road of life – where we get stuck between our vision and our reality. It’s not the obstacle that brings us down, but how we choose to react to it. This hilarious and powerfully moving program follows my own twisted journey to happier ever after. You’ll laugh, get a renewed sense of purpose for who you are and what you do, and learn my See/Believe/Do approach to getting from where you are stuck to where you are going – laughing the whole way.

Stand Up and Stick Out In a Crowded Market: Because Nobody Notices Normal

It’s not about being better that gets you the business, it’s about being different. In a crazy, crowded world of noise and confusion, where the customer has a lot more choices – you had better find a way to stand up and stick out among the competition. Join me as I take you on another one of my hilarious and powerfully moving journeys to a happier ever after by helping you find out what makes you unique, and helping you jump outside your comfort zone. Whether you are in sales, in marketing, in customer service, on the front lines or the back, own a business, want to write a book, or simply want to start living by your own list instead of someone else’s – this is the program for you.

Using Storytelling To Sell Better, Lead Better, Market Better, and Impact Better: Using A Story To Create An Emotional Connection in Business

Research tells us that: Facts tell, emotions sell. So your ability to make an emotional connection will directly affect the outcome of your success. No matter what your job, you will have far more impact and power of influence if you know how to create an emotional connection with your listener. One of your greatest tools is the story. Join me I take your audience on another one of my hilarious and motivating journeys through the path of the story. Sit mesmerized as you meet the characters in my town, and experience for yourself what stories do that information cannot. And, once again, laughing the whole way.

Laughing Your Way To A Healthier You: Where Health and Humor Meet Learn to love the body you have, while working for the one you want

She’s just the spoonful of sugar you need to help the medicine go down. For many of us, it’s not in knowing what to do where we fail it’s in actually DOING it! All the knowledge in the world will not help us reach a healthier state of being without being motivated to do it. We need to learn to love ourselves at every stage – because when we love ourselves we make better choices. So buckle in as I take us on another hilarious and powerfully motivating journey to a happier healthier self. I will make you laugh a LOT (which burns calories by the way), cry a little, learn to love ourselves again (bulges and all), and cultivate a healthy attitude and a fresh perspective on how good health can make us happy.
