Dr. Brenda Wade

NOTE:  Dr. Brenda Wade had to be rescheduled because of a sudden request by CNN to do a live interview!  We congratulate Dr. Wade, trust her interview will go well, and look forward to her next appearance on Logical Soul Talk. Michael and Brigitte Craig will instead speak on Branding from the Soul: A Wife’s Perspective.

Dr. Wade will share with Michael Craig and listeners some of her recent insights and discoveries for the NEW Love and Money Summit re-scheduled for December 9-12, 2010 in San Francisco. Listen online or call (347) 843-4544 to join the conversation!

Dr. Wade is in conversation with some big names in TV, business and the media who may lend their support to the summit and provide scholarships to those who could not attend otherwise.  She may also reveal some of her thoughts on how she got started with this project, and some of the decisions that brought her to this vision.

Brenda Wade is the author of 3 books, and appears regularly as a guest expert on shows like The Today Show, Good Morning America, and Oprah. Don’t miss hearing this dynamic and motivational woman!

What a trip! It was exhausting, but very good for Brigitte and I to reconnect with folks we love.  I’ll be talking about this trip – and some of the breakthroughs we discovered along the way – tonight at 6 pm ET on Logical Soul Talk. You can also call (347) 843-4544 to listen, comment or ask questions.

Rather than go into a long story about the trip, Brenda Wade, Darren Jacklin, the family and friends, I thought I’d let a video montage speak for me.  So here it is – about 4 minutes worth of fun.  Enjoy!

Well, its almost time to pack and head west. Brigitte and I are going on a 3-city swing of California starting tomorrow in Sacramento, and ending in San Francisco from September 1st through the 5th.

I originally thought this would be our time to Wow the audience of the Love and Money Summit, but that was postponed until December.  Instead we’ll be wowing the locals like Dr. Brenda Wade and Darren Jacklin with our super good looks, fabulous sense of humor, and my wife’s incredible cooking talent.  Might as well have some fun with those non-refundable airline tickets, huh . . ?

I just dropped our cat Mr. Pookey off at “Uncle Steve’s” for a week, told the Post Office to stop delivery, and told the neighbors to feed our  Piranhas (goldfish, actually . . . they just eat like Piranhas).  Then we started to pack.

Vitamins and green drink powder.  Check.  Warm clothing & toiletries.  Check.  Extra copies of my book.  Check.  A loaf of frozen bread in the suitcase that will look like a bomb passing through Airport X-ray.  Check.  Small battery-powered Radionics health machine that looks like a bomb.  Check.

Beware, German Bakers!What’s with airport security anyway? In 1987 I traveled all the way from the US to London on a British Airways flight with a group of Acupuncturists. We used needles on each other the whole way, and were incensed if anybody even questioned what they were for!  Times have surely changed.

Now we bend over and say thank you.  The only way someone can make sure he or she is never hassled is to wear sandals, a tunic or Burqa, and talk with a middle-eastern accent!   Over 55?  Gray or balding? Use a walker?  Watch out.  You may run afoul of the “no-profiling laws” and be patted down, cavity searched, and detained for questioning about your last trip to Norway to visit your dying Aunt Gretchen.

Oh yeah . . . have a nice vacation!

(I know, I know.  I’ve probably been tagged by Big Brother snooping from the bowels of of the N.S.A. because I used the word “Burqa.”  OK. You want me?  Come and get me!  Burqa. Burqa Burqa burqa burqa burqa burqa burqa.)


By the way, don’t show this blog post to any airport folks.  They might not think it’s funny.  They didn’t even think it was funny when my Mother-in-Law (a known terrorist) flew from Germany to Atlanta, Georgia for our wedding packing her own flour and sugar.

She’s very picky about her baking and insisted on bringing her own ingredients to make Apple Strudels.  Apparently the airport security was a bit freaked out, but let her through anyway.  When I asked my wife to tell her to “leave her drugs at home next time,” she shot back, “Drugs?  Pah!  Those packages were marked very clearly ‘Flour’ and ‘Sugar’!

I guess they didn’t trust her . . .

Going to ride my unicycle now for charity . . . catch my other excursions at Not taking the unicycle this trip, but I’ll still be doing Logical Soul Talk on Tuesday the 31st and checking messages.

Have a great Labor Day weekend!!

Love and Money Summit Rescheduled

Posted by: | Comments (2)

International Love & Money SummitThe International Love and Money Summit, originally scheduled for this weekend in San Francisco, has been rescheduled for December 9-11, 2010. Since Brigitte and I have non-refundable tickets, however, we will be going anyway, and seeing a few private clients, staying with Dr. Brenda Wade, and soaking in some Frisco Vibes.

You can still order your tickets, however. During my trip out west, I will make sure this is the biggest event in years . . . especially if some heavy sponsors (like Oprah?) come on board…

Dr. Brenda Wade is offering her second Love and Money Summit on September 2-5, 2010 over the Labor Day weekend in beautiful San Francisco! Here are some excerpts from the L&M Summit in Savannah last year in this exclusive unlisted video (don’t blink – you’ll miss me at the end):

Michael Craig with Dr. Wade

Michael Craig with Dr. Wade

Dr. Brenda Wade has agreed to write the Foreword to the soon-to-be-published  The Logical Soul.

Dr. Wade is a clinical psychologist, a well-known television personality, and a popular public speaker who lectures widely across the country.  She is the relationship contributor for NBC’s Today Show, and heads up the Love and Money Summit that was first held in Savannah, Georgia last September.  I was one of the speakers at that event.

Dr. Wade reports that the Logical Soul™ sounds similar to some work she does, and wants to do a session soon, as well as write the Foreword. She also requested having me speak at some of her future workshops and seminars in California and elsewhere, and I readily agreed.

I also spoke with Brenda on the phone the day my Mom passed away, and she was very supportive and helpful in my time of sadness.  Its a great honor to know Dr. Wade, and I’m blessed to have her on our team!

I had the rare privilege to be invited as a speaker to Dr. Wade’s Love and Money Summit in Savannah, Georgia over the Labor Day weekend. While expecting the crowd to be mostly adult entrepreneurs and business people, it turned out instead an opportunity to be a mentor to some very special kids from New Orleans! 

These Katrina survivor students (from the Fashion Lab) had used their passion for fashion to pursue career advice from the best and brightest stars in health, finance, wellness, love and money.  That weekend offer enrichment possibilities to all the kids, but more surprisingly, mostly to the speakers themselves!   Each of us had a chance to interact and share our knowledge and experience with bright eyes and eager ears, and walked away with memories we and the kids shall always cherish.MC&Kevin
