Who Is Someone You Love To Follow Online: Lately, my favorite person to follow online has been Ryan Trahan (@RyanTrahan). He recently completed a 30-day solo quest from Los Angeles to North Carolina, which he shared through crisply edited daily YouTube vlogs. Ryan's spectacularly innovative take on what I call 'roadtrip marketing' featured him bootstrapping ways to make enough cash for him to travel from city to city, like washing windows in Las Vegas, walking dogs in Denver, and mowing lawns in Nashville.

Ryan's adventure captivated the entire YouTube community, raising nearly $1.4 million to fund over 13 million meals for Feeding America. His trip -- which pushed his YouTube channel to north of 10 million subscribers -- is certain to collect industry awards and change the way brands consider working with creators ... and Ryan is only 24. I'd love to meet Ryan to congratulate him, buy him a Chipotle burrito (as he ate nearly every day on his trip) and share stories from the road.

You read that right we are "Laugh Yogis"...we are the Laughter Professionals.   In laughter yoga, we combine laughter exercises & deep breathing with childlike playfulness & movement to connect, unwind, and let go. No sense of humor, flexibility, or yoga mat required!  Laughter Yoga is perhaps the only exercise routine that helps to ease physical, mental & emotional stress all at the same time. Scientific studies show that Laughter yoga strengthens the immune system and infection-fighting antibodies, alleviates pain, relieves tension, lowers blood pressure, controls blood sugar, and keeps the heart-healthy. It is awesome to lead a human connection experience with the vibration of joy. It's so fulfilling to lead laughter yoga sessions for people of all walks of life and all ages. We love that laughter yoga can be done during celebrations or to help alleviate, reduce, or eliminate anger, loneliness, anxiety, comfort with loss, pain, depression, and more. Most importantly, laughter yoga allows the opportunity to experience the present moment.  In this challenging time, we are attempting to cultivate human connection via laughter. We would love to spread the word to encourage people to participate in doing something that not only feels good but it good for them. We got into this work because we have a passion to empower, inspire, enlighten, and awaken the inner joy within every human we interact with...

We think we have to be everything to every body at once. We think we have to do everything at once, but there is a season for everything. Maybe the season you are in right now is exactly where you need to be.
