2013 Doing Life Right Teleconference Begins

Anyone who knows me really well, knows that I'm rather obsessed about personal development and growth. I believe so strongly that I can continually become a better person through striving to be my personal best in all aspects of life, that I've not only named a company Do Life Right, Inc., but I've also created an annual Doing Life Right Teleconference.

Yes, this subject makes me giddy!

For me, I believe that we all have the potential to do life right in our individual ways (although there are universal truths as well). The idea of doing ALL of life "right" can sound a little daunting. So, I'm collecting advice, in ~5 minute long snippets, from people who are doing one particular aspect of life right. (To be honest, these people do a lot more than one thing right, but for the sake of this annual teleconference, they concentrate their short little talks one just one small topic.) :)

To see all the videos I've collected, check out the teleconference page on my company's website or the Doing Life Right Teleconference channel on YouTube:

To keep up-to-date with all the new happenings, be sure to become a Facebook fan of the Doing Life Right Teleconference.

Have an idea that you'd like to share with the world? Contact me! I'm striving to have a minimum of 31 videos in 2014. I'd love to include one from you! What knowledge to you have that you just must share with the world?


Thank you for watching the 1st Annual Doing Life Right Teleconference

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Hosting the Doing Life Right Teleconference has been a dream come true for me. I would like to thank every speaker who shared an important part of their lives with us. I know I was personally inspired by each and every presenter. I truly believe we are all experts at something, and sharing this expertise can help and inspire the entire world.

I would also like to thank all of you viewers for watching. Without your views, there would be no teleconference.

I'm looking forward to next year's teleconference already! If you would like to present a video in the October 2013 Doing Life Right Teleconference, I'm taking submissions starting November 1, 2012. All proposals, bios, and photos need to be submitted by June 30, 2013. All 5-minute videos need to be submitted by August 31, 2013.

If you missed a talk, here is the full list of speakers from 2012:


Doing Unschooling Right; VIDEO 25 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Sandra Dodd as she tells us about Doing Unschooling Right!

Sandra Dodd has been involved in attachment parenting since 1986, and unschooling since her oldest child, Kirby, didn't go to school, in 1990. She lives in Albuquerque with her husband Keith, son Marty and daughter Holly, who are young adults attending community college and and living rich lives. Kirby works for Blizzard Entertainment, in Austin. Those three were unschooled throughout, and are all past school age, but not past learning! Neither are their parents.

Sandra is a former English teacher whose other jobs have all involved words and ideas and learning too, and whose avocation and hobby has become helping other parents find ways to live more richly and peacefully with their children. Sandra's website has her growing collection of writings, notes, and examples collected from more than a hundred unschooling families over nearly two decades of online discussions.

In "Doing Unschooling Right," Sandra gives us suggestions on ways to create and maintain an environment in which natural learning can thrive.

Doing Poetry Right; VIDEO 23 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Renée La Tulippe as she tells us about Doing Poetry Right!


Renée LaTulippe is a former English/theater/public speaking teacher and wannabe starlet. She is now a children's writer who composes poems for her video blog, No Water River, where she also features videos of renowned children's poets reading their own work. Renée is also the editor at All About Learning Press, for whom she co-authors pre-reading books and early readers, including Lizard Lou: a collection of rhymes old and new, and blogs on language and grammar (often under the guise of her alter ego, the Chipmunk of Doom). Renée holds a BFA in acting/directing from Marymount Manhattan College and an MA in English Education from New York University. She lives in Italy with her husband and twin toddler boys.


In "Doing Poetry Right," Renée tells us that poetry is meant to be read aloud, but most people -- including some teachers -- are afraid of it or simply don't know how to appreciate it. Focusing on reading/performing poetry out loud knocks poetry off its pedestal and makes it accessible and fun for everyone. Renée includes her top tips for bringing a poem to life (e.g., playing with language, character, diction, gesture, etc.), along with a lot of warm encouragement. Let's get out of our seats and start sharing poetry!
