Clarissa here In the Limelight with yet another fantastic guest this morning, I'm excited to have a very good friend that I've known for a long time, Paulette Bodeman, who is known as a tantric yogi. Her book, “The Breakaway Girl”, she's dedicated to me and it's an autobiographical work, correct?
Paulette Bodeman: Yes. It started because I've been teaching yoga, meditation and tantric philosophy for quite a long time. It started between journaling and questions that my clients and students would ask. It morphed and became this memoir. It's also self-help; in the end, it's broken into four parts and dedication to the goddesses because they are our Super Powers. I tell the story about my writing coach where I kept saying to him, “I don't know the title.” He said, “Just keep writing, the book will tell you” and the book told me. One day I'm hiking with my husband in northern Arizona and we're talking about the book and sections. We were talking about how my mom at different periods of my life called me ‘the black sheep' of the family. When we were hiking away I thought, ‘I was never the black sheep of the family. I was the breakaway girl.” and I was like, “Oh gosh, that's it!”.

Before we get to that, I want to know about 4-year-old Sharron when she was padding around the house in her mommy's high heels and asking for a purse to accessorize. We all loved to play dress up. Tell us about your dress-up days.
Clarissa: I'm thrilled to have here a really good friend, a woman's advocate, which is why I love her.

In the Limelight with Clarissa Burt interviews Marc Demetriou: Author of ‘Lessons From My Grandfather: Wisdom for Success in Business and Life’
You are In the Limelight! I've got a really special guest that I've met recently. You all know how I'm always around networking and I met an extraordinary person with an extraordinary story and an extraordinary book. I love what it's all about. I'm going to have him tell you about it, his name is Marc Demetriou.
Clarissa: Mark, how are you today?
Clarissa: Hey Greg! I’m checking in with you after all the huge success of the Wishman movie that premiered last month in Los Angeles at the legendary Egyptian Theatre. What a night! What a whirlwind! Weigh in for us.
Greg: I think it was seven, eight years ago, you Clarissa introduced me to a guy by the name of Frank Shankwitz, Founder of the Make a Wish Foundation, and I was interviewing him for a book I was writing called Stickability. I asked him, “Hey, what's what was your wish, what would you asked for?” And he said, “No one ever asked me my wish”. He wanted his story to be told in a movie. We made it our journey to grant him his wish. Now it's just taken off like wildfire, it' going like a windstorm. So it's pretty exciting. And you, Clarissa, are the catalyst to all that!
