Uplift America with Andy Andrews

Uplift America with Andy Andrews

I’d like to propose Andy Andrews as a guest. Andy is one of the most remarkable people in the world and can provide some of the most entertaining, fun, humorous, uplifting and profound guidance that you will ever experience.

We did an interview with FOX TV Studio B with Shepherd Smith last week. Here’s the four minute link.

Here is a link to the most current media kit pdf file which contains information on his latest book The Noticer and four or five show proposals.

I realize the show proposals contained here may not fit exactly so I’d like you to be as free with your imagination as possible and give us a direction to go.

For example, Andy’s latest book has a simple way to keep marriages together and avoid disaster when times are tough. All you need to do is find out what type of communicator each spouse is: a puppy dog, goldfish, canary or a cat. The explanation of each along with the advice on how to best communicate is hilarious and insightful.

They call Andy Andrews the Noticer. He sees things that other people don’t see.

He is corporate America’s best-kept secret. Microsoft, Chick-Fil-A, AT&T and hundreds of others…Nancy Lopez’s Solheim Cup Team

Organizations…even entire towns like Findlay, Ohio and Lakeland, Florida call him during times of need.

Celebrities like Bob Hope have called upon him in times of personal need.

Even Presidents, four standing US Presidents, have taken Andy to their side and into their home for personal advice and counsel.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff have flown Andy to the Middle East to give uplifting talks to the Allied Commanders and the troops, not once, but twice, in the past four years.

Andy Andrews, New York Times Best Selling Author of “The Traveler’s Gift” sees tiny things that others often miss. Tiny things, he says, that can bring about huge changes for families and businesses during tough times.

Companies and businesses all across America – even foreign governments — are using Andy during this recession to find avenues of profit and success that they didn’t even realize existed.

When Andy offers advice, it is always coupled with a personal or a humorous story that will make you smile. We can focus his talents and insight in so many ways and it will always be a phenomenally entertaining time.

I can have a media kit package and review copy sent to you immediately.

Just let me know the best street address. When it arrives you’ll be able to peruse it to your hearts content.

You can then let me know at your convenience what we can do to help you create a memorable show and experience.

My direct line is 509-582-5174, my cell is 509-531-8390.

Healthy Aging—for Kids?

Today’s children may be the first generation to have poorer health and live shorter lives than their parents. In July, the American Academy of Pediatricians sounded the alarm when it encouraged pediatricians to treat children at risk—as young as eight—with drugs for high cholesterol. This condition—as well as others that were formerly found exclusively in adults and seniors—is a byproduct of another startling statistic: one out of three children is overweight or obese.

September is national Healthy Aging Month, and its traditional focus has been on adults 50 years or older. But in light of the downward trend in longevity, the concept of healthy aging needs to be applied to everyone—even children.

Carole Carson—dubbed “An Apostle for Fitness” by the Wall Street Journal and the author of From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself into a Weapon of Mass Reduction—says whether we=re teachers, friends, parents, aunts and uncles or grandparents, we can help children get fit and preserve their option to age healthfully. Here are three FIT tips:

F: Feed your children home-cooked meals that include vegetables and fruit. Fill your cupboard and refrigerator with healthy “fast foods” (for example, bananas, apples, hard-boiled eggs, whole wheat bread, raisins and carrots) that kids can grab and eat on the run.

I: Inquire about the calories and content of restaurant and processed foods, checking specifically for fat, trans fat and sodium. Involve yourself in parents’ groups promoting healthy school lunch programs. Introduce the concepts of portion size and caloric content.

T: Teach children about nutrition, for example, the importance of drinking milk to build strong bones and eating fresh fruits and vegetables to provide needed vitamins, fiber and nutrients. Take time to participate in fun physical activities with your kids, showing them by example that exercise is important.

Raising children is a daunting yet fun-filled challenge. To ensure that our children develop into fit, productive adults, all of us must adopt a healthy lifestyle. We’re never too old—or too young—to focus on fitness.
