My goal is to create a massive shift in understanding so that children, teens, and parents feel calm, self assured, and excited about life, even in tough times.

WHAT I DO

  • Starting Fall 2019 I’m running a 10-day program showing students how to manage modern-day pressures and feel happier, calmer, and more productive in day-to-day life.
  • During a motivational assembly I’ll reveal the the true nature of the human mind, including 7 common beliefs that keep people stressed out and unhappy. Students will learn they don’t have to “think positively”, to feel good, plus they’ll learn a super easy technique called “Do Nothing Meditation.” Teachers will be provided with 10 posters to hand out over the following two weeks, showing how this easier way of thinking helps in all areas of life.

I love love love the book [Whose Mind Is It Anyway]… I have shared it with two people at work already and we are planning on using it for our social and individual counseling sessions when we come back to school next year.
Rebecca Bittner, CSP Special Educator, North Harford Middle, Maryland.

The truths they write about are deep and profound, and yet this book is fun, light, and entertaining. I couldn’t more highly recommend it!

It’s a quick read, but don’t let that fool you: Within seven short, fun chapters, Lisa and Franco have succinctly explained how we can not only find peace from our thoughts, but also be at peace with ourselves… I recommend keeping it somewhere you’ll see it often and flipping through the pages whenever you’re getting stuck in a web of thoughts.

I absolutely love Whose Mind Is It Anyway? It’s the perfect personal-growth book for those of us who are done with personal-growth books. So simple and whimsical and wise. It has charmed and delighted me into reimagining my approach to life. And it makes me smile every time I open it up.

… a unique, creative, and effective handbook that both illustrates fundamental insights into human nature and sets a straight course for self-enlightenment and fulfillment. A great present not only for recent graduates but for anyone questioning their next step; the issues raised by the Esiles last for a lifetime, and the positive vibe they promote are needed at all stages and ages of life.
