Short Description of Talk:
Individually or as a dynamic couple, Allen and Linda Anderson present their unusual, often-hilarious journey to becoming internationally and locally newsworthy. They share entertaining, enlightening, heart opening, and sometimes, harrowing personal experiences and insights from their offbeat road to becoming best-selling and award-winning animal book authors. With true cat, dog, horse, and other animal stories they have collected over the years, from around the world, they inspire audiences to overcome obstacles and value all of life's teachers. Allen and Linda show everyone that if the Andersons can do it, anyone can follow their dreams. Pet enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, and people of any age or profession will appreciate what Allen and Linda say about teamwork and partnership and living the unexpected life while juggling love, marriage, financial dips, pets, purpose, courage, fear, and health challenges. They show how to get it together (or look like you did) when you're not cool at all.
