Author, Attitude Enhancer, Laughter Leader

Listen to Interview Here

Julie Ann Sullivan, now known as the Attitude Enhancer, deliberately studies human behavior every day.  She has a diverse educational background which includes a BA in Psychology, an MBA in Accounting and a Certification as an Expert Level Practitioner as a
Certified Laughter Leader.  She is a speaker and an author who also spent decades in the corporate world.  Her ultimate goal is not so much what participants hear in a presentation, but rather what they will use in their lives every day. She has spoken for many companies and organizations including, McDonald's USA, the City of Pittsburgh and Bayer US.  In addition she taught her signature presentation, “Laugh, Just For the Health of it,” to nearly 3,000 people last year.  She recently released her newest book, A little bit of GRATITUDE goes a long way.  

Talking Points
Julie Ann is now known as the Attitude Enhancer and she is an Expert Level Certified Laughter Leader. 
"A little bit of GRATITUDE goes a long way" came out of her work with laughter.  
This is her third book, the others being, "Life Lessons" and "Shape Up for Success."
Subtitle:  “Seven Keys to Ease Your Mind, Open Your Heart and Find Your Place in the World.”

She has been enhancing attitudes in businesses, non- profits and schools.
Their benefit is a happier workplace and increased productivity and creativity.
Julie Ann also speaks on Communication, Collaboration and Change, always including humor and gratitude.

The cover for Life Lessons attached is for the edition that is now Sold Out.  I am redesigning it to include sketches and it will be released before year's end.  It is filled with snippets of lessons I have learned and continue to learn.  They are universal.  Example:
"Life is like playing a guitar.  The more you practice, the better you get at it."

For A little bit of GRATITUDE goes a long way:

More Gratitude = Better Attitude

There is no doubt about that.
This book reminds you all that there is to be grateful for. Since it is written in a workbook style, you will have the opportunity to put into your own words what you are discovering anew.
“I am thankful that this world is filled with children. The ability to watch a child enjoy life gives me the chance to see life through their perspective. Their sense of play reminds me how important it is to continue to “play” until my last breath.”
