On the Road

It's been an exciting time at First 30 Days! My book, The First 30 Days: Your Guide to Any Change, was picked as an favorite in the Health, Mind and Fitness category. I had an incredible opportunity to kick off a few weeks of press with an appearance on the Today Show. I've also recorded a podcast on the 9 Principles of Change outlined in the book, which you can listen to at Written Voices. My schedule is below and I hope that if I'm on in your city, you'll tune in! My schedule will be updated weekly, so please check back for more appearances soon! And, if you missed anything, check out the press page—we do our best to keep it consistently updated with clips, articles and more! You'll find recent press from Redbook, Business Week, Tech Crunch and many others.

Even more exciting than the book tour and the appearances is the opportunity to reconnect with friends and mentors from the past. I was thrilled when, on the heels of an interview on Canadian television, I received an email from my kindergarten teacher in Brussels. She was a mentor and someone who shaped my life incredibly, and I am so grateful that First 30 Days has given me the chance to hear from her. It's also given me a chance to hear from so many of you who are making changes great and difficult—keep at it, stay positive and keep letting us know what changes are happening out there!
