Lisa Anselmo
      Lisa Anselmo, author, creative director and blogger, held an audience of about 60 in the palm of her hand as she taught us all how to find our authentic voice. She talked about her memoire, My (Part-Time) Paris Life (St Martin’s Press), and shared how we can create our own story — one that resonates and sets us apart. Targeted to people who have the urge to write...a memoir, a blog, a podcast or just about anything, she had us all convinced that any one of us could do it, as long as we followed her method to think like a brand and build a strategy, showing  us how to uncover our unique voices and find a passionate following.
     Lisa started traveling to Paris regularly 12 years ago — at first, to cover the fashion trade shows for a lifestyle website. But soon, she had cultivated friends — both Parisians and expats — and after over a decade of visits, had built another life across the ocean. In 2012, after the death of her mother from breast cancer, she decided to seize the day and make her other life official, buying an apartment in Paris’s Right Bank. One bold move led to a changed life. Her memoir, My (Part-Time) Paris Life, chronicles this journey.
     Lisa is also largely responsible for the “No Lovelocks” campaign that was instrumental in saving the Paris bridges and is now hosting a “Save the Paris Café” initiative to bring awareness to the world about the importance and relevance of café life.
     She led us through a PowerPoint presentation, step by step, with some seriousness, but with some real humor and a lot of her personal story. She read a few excerpts from her book that had us both laughing and crying. Two participants volunteered to be her Guinea pigs — a fun exercise that showed us first-hand how her coaching techniques really work. Besides being very entertaining, it was very informative and a creative boost to get us started!
