My profession, speaking to audiences all over the world, conveying a message of hope and a can do attitude no matter how difficult the circumstances. Writing books to change behavior and results.
Education is the only hope the world has for not destroying itself. There are enough resources and knowledge in the world for everyone to live together and prosper. Religious fanatism poses a great danger for society and it must be eliminated. The only way to do this is through education.
Anything. I am a good listener and I am always eager to hear somebody else´s opinion. No one holds one hundred percent of the truth so we are always learning .
explaining the Matamoros satanic cult history and how it ended. I am an expert on this subject and it is something everyone should understand so that you are aware how dangerous religious fanatism is.
I have attended TED Palm Springs in 2008, I found it a very interesting experience. I signed up to TED 2009 and was given the opportunity to speak at TED University. Little did I know that my talk, Don't Eat the Marshmallow Yet, would go viral. Thousands and thousands of people all over the world have seen it and have posted it to blogs and websites all over the world. I have received over 250 comments in the TED web page and I have answered every single comment. I believe that if someone takes de trouble to write about what I have spoken about, they deserve the courtesy of a reply, no matter if the comment is a positive one or a negative. I also had the opportunity to speak at TED U in 2010. I attended TED India and it was a fantastic experience. I attended TED 2011, also enjoying it tremendously. TED is a wonderful organization, it educates the world and it will definitely have a big impact on mankind
