It is half standup/half inspiration / ALL POSITIVE and gives students keys to ensure continued success, happiness, abundance, and wealth. The main objective is to celebrate yourself first, and from that overflow celebrate EVERY other student you come in contact with. The truth is we are all diverse, and unique – we are all a masterpiece. When you celebrate the uniqueness of yourself and others, life becomes beautiful beyond description!
This is a motivational comedy that gives students three keys that will undoubtedly ensure their future success. Half of this message is delivered in pro-standup comedy format and the other half has comedic anecdotes and poignant truths that make this learning process extremely fun!
