Some people see the glass half full. Some people see the glass half empty. But Pamela believes if you have a glass you’ve got a reason to grin. In 1998, she founded the Secret Society of Happy People to provide a missing voice for everyone who’s happy and wants to express it without having other people rain on their parade. She recently launched Happier @ Work to help leaders lead happier teams.

Tell us about yourself; who are you and what do you do for fun?

When I’m not working on starting a new company and speaking career I spend time with family, friends and my dog Tater (who thinks he’s a child). I also love yoga, entertaining, and hosting my monthly book club.

What got you into speaking? Is it what you expected?

When I was in 4-H I started speaking and was a trainer for Junior Achievement after college so I’ve been speaking for a long time. Now I’m just trying to make it a paying career. I’m not sure if it’s what I expected, I’m still new to it.

What has been your biggest success as a speaker so far?

My biggest success as a speaker so far was when I got an unexpected call to do a training for 140 employees at a local non-profit.

What was your biggest struggle before finding The Speaker Lab?

Before The Speaker Lab, I really struggled with how to make speaking a business.

How has The Speaker Lab helped you and your business?

The Speaker Lab has really helped me look professional with things like a speakers agreement, 1099, and a bio.

What is your number one goal over the next 6 months to a year?

I want to book 10 paid speaking engagements in the next 6 months.
