A few years ago, one of my publishers, Brilliance Audio, brought me to Michigan in February to record my latest book “Happy This Year.”

The car service picked me up at the airport and took me straight to the studio where we had an intense 3 days of recording planned.

Somehow, between leaving home, flying to Detroit and arriving at the studio, I GOT SICK!

I couldn’t speak without croaking like a frog.

The publisher refused to record me (who wants an audiobook recorded by a sick person?) and I spent 2 days in my hotel room guzzling TheraFlu and listening to “Roar” by Katy Perry.

In this video, I share how the story turned out (big surprise!) as well as more from my personal playlist to inspire the lion within you!
