Like a book on steroids!

“As the Director of Communications and Alumni at a world renowned treatment center, featured on 20/20, The Doctors, Good Morning America, and Dr. Phil, I’ve been exposed to a number of passionate presenters and I can attest that you will not find another soul in this world, who has the unique gifts that Penelope possesses. Penelope’s speaking engagements are like a book on tape, on steroids! Welcomed. Wanted. Mattered. Inspired. That’s how she makes everyone in her presence feel. Penelope wants you to live out your best day every day of your life.” —Erika Zapecza, Communications and Alumni Director, Onsite Workshops

Viral Energy: There’s something to it

“It’s really an interesting concept—these infectious agents that you’re calling them. Maybe you’re a person who doesn’t have enough ‘Teflon’ (emotional armor), so things stick to you. Turn off media and social media at a certain point. I think social media can make it hard to have ‘Teflon’ these days because sometimes you can be constantly reminded of what is negative. I think there’s something to it, it’s like you get this virus, you get this infectious agent.” —Dr. Stephen Hinshaw, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley; Vice-Chair of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco; Editor, Psychological Bulletinauthor of The Triple Bind: Saving Our Teenage Girls from Today’s Pressures

This needs to be talked about on every Facebook profile

“I applaud you so much for what you’re doing, and how much what you’re doing will help. I’m really glad that you’re doing this. I wish that this was something being talked about on every street corner, and on every Facebook profile.” —Dr. Mitch Prinstein, Ph.D., ABPP, Bowman and Gordon Gray Distinguished Professor, Director of Clinical Psychology, Editor of the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Department of Psychology
