I give a 30 – 45 minute, highly motivating, hopefully hilarious, totally G-rated account of How I Came to Be THE Sweet Potato Queen and My Resulting Contributions to World Peace (inspite of the fact that all I ever wanted in life was to be a 5'2", red-headed, large-breasted, tiny-footed singer and never got ANY of it). Afterwards, I answer questions – and since I know pretty much everything (except for Algebra) – this is most helpful to the audience.
