Many people don't know but the name of my first presentation that I took on the road was entitled, "Don't Judge a Book by Its Noises!" It was a play both on my vocal tics and intestinal issues. That didn't last long as I quickly picked up and trade marked the phrase "What Makes You Tic?" I felt this phrase captured the essence of my presentation: How little do we know about what's going on in people's lives. Of course, it also was a play on the word tic. A wonderful woman named Stacey Bird helped me developed that logo.
Over the past 6 six years I continued to use that phrase as I traveled the nation speaking on tolerance and compassion. As I now embark on a new chapter to reach leaders and individuals who are looking to break though limitations, it's bitter sweet to retire "What Makes You Tic?" officially. With that presentation I made it to 45 states, international audiences and had the pleasure of meeting tens of thousands of people around the world. Although I no longer will share that presentation, my message of compassion and tolerance is one that I think about on a daily basis. Live and Let Live!
