Jersey Magazine with Jim Monaghan

Laura Gassner Otting is back for her third visit to Jersey Magazine. A Washington Post and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Laura likes to challenge people – like telling you that your New Year’s resolution will fail.

As an author and dynamic public speaker, Laura’s goal is to empower people to realize their full potential and reach beyond often self-imposed limitations.

In her book Limitless, Laura spoke of getting unstuck when pushing for personal and professional goals that sometimes feel well beyond our reach.

Laura’s most recent book Wonderhell; Why Success Doesn’t Feel Like It Should, takes us to the next level – success isn’t a final destination, but the opening of another door that builds upon what we learned in Limitless.

In a recent email to her audience, Laura started out by telling them why their New Year’s resolutions were going to fail, and then offered suggestions on how to NOT let that happen.

Laura and Jim Monaghan talk about all of that and more in this morning’s interview.

  • Rock N Ruff

    Hi Animal Loving Friends!

    Terrie Carr here with this week’s Rock N’ Ruff Rockstar Rescue!  And we are happy to have had a visit once again from our friends at The Gingerbread House Sanctuary and Rescue The Gingerbread House Rescue based out of Northern New Jersey who specialize in tiny dogs, small seniors and really love the Pekinese breed, and our friend Lynn Nixon came prepared with 5 awesome pups that need homes! First up, FRANKLIN a Papillon/Chihuahua mix who is so cute and cuddly!

    Franklin is 5 years old and is described by the rescue and his foster as…..

    “The sweetest little love bug. Franklin is a Velcro dog that LOVES being with his people. He is a great little companion and enjoys mild walks, sniffing in the yard, lounging around, and giving kisses. Mostly, he just wants to be glued to his people.

    He lives with other small breed pups in his foster home and is not interested in them. He is a good eater and goes potty outside. He does know how to use a potty pad if you have them down. He would be ok with teenagers and up no small kids due to his small size”

    Franklin would also love being the ONLY dog in the home as he is more bonded with people than dogs and can be a bit bossy with his toys, but this sweet, loving, good boy loves being held and being active and playing. He’s wonderful!

    Personally I couldn’t stop cuddling this awesome boy who was so comfortable with me loving him and also loved to run and play at the station! He’s a great little dude!
