“The first time her laughter unfurled its wings in the wind, we knew that the world would never be the same.” -Brian Andreas

The mission of Find The Funny Enterprises is to facilitate laughter in people’s lives and act as the catalyst for rediscovering joy and recapturingcreativity and childlike playfulness.

Find The Funny Enterprises was founded in 2001 by Julie Ostrow, The Comedic Catalyst.  Julie is trained in improvisational acting at The Second City in Chicago, is a certified laughter yoga leader, and has more than 15 years of public speaking and marketing experience.

Julie conducts humor, laughter, and communication presentations and workshops for healthcare organizationsassociations, and corporations.  In addition, she teaches public speaking and improvisation to youth and adults and performs comedy and improvisation for a variety of events.

Julie shares her wit and wisdom gained from her life experiences including her background as a mentor with OMNI Youth Services in Buffalo Grove, IL and as a grief support volunteer at The Chicago Children’s Memorial Hospital’s Heartlight program, a bereavement support center for children and their families.  Julie has also gained tremendous insight from growing up in a large family and from her life in the corporate world as a marketing professional.

Julie’s enthusiasm and passionate spirit, combined with her comedic insight, help to make her a warm and engaging speaker. In every performance and situation, Julie shares her humor and personal insights from her “woopsies” and “way-to-go’s.” Her personal motto, “find the funny,” helps her to find humor in everyday moments and in life’s seemingly most difficult situations.

The New Whisper

First it was Dan “Buck” Brannaman, the horse whisperer; then Cesar Millan who whispered to dogs. A Google search revealed there are whisperers for cats, babies, donkeys, skunks, reptiles and (no joke) one for serial killers. In this week’s edition of the Daily Record, a unique category emerged when a gentleman named Jim Conroy referred to himself as the “tree whisperer.” He believes that trees and plants respond to touch, bioenergy and alternative forms of healing. While those of the animal kingdom use their special abilities to train difficult members of their designated species, Mr. Conroy uses his gift to heal and balance plant life, specifically trees. The serial killer whisperer, well, you can Google that one yourself.

Never being one who kept up with current trends (a quick glance at my wardrobe will attest to that), I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon of this one. Henceforth, from this moment on, I want to be identified as the “Anger Whisperer”. Cool moniker, isn’t it? I hereby claim exclusive rights to it (if that’s even possible).

What does it mean to be an Anger Whisperer? Too often, when people become upset with another individual or in a particular situation, they become aggressive and loud. Yelling, screaming, cursing or threatening becomes a method of expressing their discontent. Many believe that situations (“I can’t get the stupid lid off this jar!”) respond best to loud noises. We can all attest to the fact that lids react favorably to an increase in vocal volume. And certainly, we’ve all witnessed the positive impact on others when we scream at them. I know I have. I suddenly develop a fervent desire to comply with the other party when they raise their voice at me.

An “anger whisperer” is one who chooses to speak with confidence rather than hysteria. (The above behaviors are hysterical – and not in the comedic sense.) Secure in their position, they speak clearly and concisely, make requests rather than demands, avoid blame like the plague, are respectful of all parties, and actively seek solutions. Being an “AW” conserves energy, too. It takes far less exertion to speak calmly as opposed to harshly. Additionally, you avoid alienating or offending those around you or damaging the task you are working on. And no one needs to “clean up your mess” when your rant is complete.

I invite each one of you to become an “anger whisperer” disciple. When confronting another person:

~ Speak your words softly but firmly (as my above “whispering” colleagues do);
~ Build trust;
~ Gain the cooperation and respect of those around you;
~ Work towards finding a solution that benefits all concerned;
~ Be a voice of peace and healing;

Whispering works. Try it. Just don’t steal my handle. : >)

Hello, I’m Charly Emery. You may have seen me as a relationship expert on Fox News in LA or Bostonwhere I’ve shared some of the savvy and strategic tips from my modern handbook on attracting fabulous relationships, Thank Goodness You Dumped His Ass—Use Those Mr. Wrongs to Lead You Straight to Mr. Right! Most recently I appeared as a coach on Nigel Lythgoe’s new show, Opening Act, which premieres on E! network on July 9th, 2012!

I LOVE helping people get the best out of life and love as quickly as possible, and much of my expertise comes directly from life experience. By age 19 I’d endured violent prejudice, an eating disorder and two incidences of rape. I repressed my traumas for more than six years while packing an extra 50 pounds onto my 5’2″ frame. When I achieved my goal of losing the extra weight, my trauma resurfaced revealing every aspect of my life to be a lie.

If you’ve ever felt lost in your life I know exactly how you feel. If there’s one thing I want you to know, it’s that YOU ARE MORE than your experiences. I’ve been in the trenches, hence I know firsthand that no matter what your patterns have been, you can recycle your experiences into stepping stones that will take you to new heights you might never have imagined possible!

As a strategist I focus solely on creating the changes and results you desire as quickly as possible byrecycling what you’ve experienced into what you really want. I’ll teach you how to trade the concept of self-love for the action of “Loving You First.” Then I’ll show you exactly how to ‘put you first‘ unselfishly in all of your relationships daily for the best love (and friendship) has to offer. My own journey taught me that it’s not so much what happens to us as what we decide about us and our lives after things happen. No matter what your pattern has been, we can change it quickly!

I use my intuitive skills to pinpoint what’s driving your choices and actions, so together we can make the necessary corrections. You will feel immedaite relief with a clear understanding of exactly what’s been causing you to create the patterns and results you’re getting! Since action is the fastest way to create new habits, I’ll create a personalized strategy that empowers you to make the corrections, bounce your baggage to the curb and deal with any old patterns when they try to resurface. We’ll also have a good time doing it. See what Celebrity Stylist, Lisa M. Berman had to say about our session in this videoalong with what other clients have to say.

I’m a poster child for making your imperfections serve you perfectly, and it’s my passion to serve self-help re-designed with a modern and savvy twist, that’s fresh, fast, entertaining and effective. Visit me atwww.CharlySense.com and sign up for my free newsletter today. Cheers to your best relationships ever!
Warmest wishes,
