Talk For Hope: Turning Loneliness into a Business

cuddleWhen I meet a person, I’m anxious to know their story. What do they stand for? How has their life experience shaped them? I met Samantha through this article in Business Insider and her story is worth telling. She is a professional hugger. She hugs people for $60/hour and makes $7200 a month. Soon she is opening a retail shop where she will certify Huggers in a 40 hour course. Oh, the stories she must hear! I’ll bet her next venture is to write a book about her hugging history! Samantha created a business cuddleuptome to meet one of her own needs: to be hugged, loved, accepted after being out of a relationship for 13 years.

How are you meeting your own needs in your line of work?

About the Author:

How many speakers leave you with memorable life lessons, motivating a life-perspective adjustment, a catalyst for real change? As a professional interactive performance artist, I have stage presence, charisma, a deep vibrant voice, and a message worth your time. I'm too busy to waste my time or yours with talk that cannot be applied personally and professionally in an immediate way. I performed ‘A Story NOT Silenced by Oral Cancer’ Off-Broadway in New York City to a sold-out audience, I founded the Six-Step Screening™ oral cancer awareness campaign, authored two books: ‘Mr. C Plays Hide & Seek’ and ‘Mr. C the Globetrotter,’ to empower children with coping skills and communication strategies when someone they love has cancer, and created ‘My Story Legacy,’ a creative format to document family stories, life values and wisdom for future generations.
