You can buy a DVD right here that can make your friendships… and your family life… much more pleasant. It’s called “HOW TO BE A FUN PERSON TO BE AROUND” Take a half a minute and read on.

Hurray!  At last!  Getting rid of negative energy!

I didn’t know I was exuding negative energy until somebody told me. So I discovered that negativity comes from: (1) overemphasizing  how smart we are or how right or how logical… or even how laid back; (2) being out of touch.  Some negativity comes from (3) our insecurity,  and some from our (4) anger.
The good news is that these can all be dealt with and overcome.

Then there’s the opposite of negativity: Being a Fun Person to Be Around.

So I made a video explaining all this.

Oh, oh… I can hear it now:  “Another busybody trying to tell us how to live our lives!”  No way!  Let me explain.

Most colleges and universities offer a course entitled “Interpersonal Relationships”.

This workshop I am presenting, with a team of couples and young people, is a condensed version of a course like that but from a unique point of view. Plus it has some insights that you won’t find anyplace else.  And it’s fun.  (And hey, $19 vs. $200!)
So, no, I’m not going to be so stupid as to tell you what to do; I’m smart enough not to do that. Read on.


Fr. JoeLike the late Mr. Fred Rogers of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” fame, who was an ordained Presbyterian minister, I, too, am a clergy-person (semi-retired). Just as “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” was not a religious program per se, so neither is my DVD. It works perfectly well for people of any or no religious persuasion.

Hi.  I’m Father Joe McKenna.  From 50 years of dealing with families (three generational families) I have amazed myself by becoming an expert in negativity or negative energy.

But what is more important is the opposite of negativity. I won’t tell you what it is here because I want to surprise you. (Hint: it is not being positive.) This is what makes this DVD exciting and I don’t want to spoil it for you.  Let’s put it this way:  One of the songs you will hear on the DVD is Billy Joel’s “She’s Got a Way”.  “She’s got a way of pleasin’ … She’s got a smile that heals me… She’s got a way of talkin’…  it lifts me up when we are walkin’…”  And especially “A million dreams of love surround her…”

This special quality which, if you have it, people feel uplifted around you is the opposite of negativity. It will change your life.  You will be fun to be around.

And we will be discussing lots of other helps to our relationships: How we can confront people who annoy us without everybody having a meltdown. (Very important.)

And it doesn’t mean we have to change ourselves very much (we wouldn’t be ourselves if we changed TOO much.) But by learning how to deal less toxically with people we can avoid a lot of negative energy and actually end up laughing.

Now I desperately want to share these…and many other insights…with as many people as possible. So I have recorded onto a DVD a workshop that I entitle “How to be a Fun Person to be Around”…

…around friends,
with sweethearts,
with spouses,
in families,
on committees,
in clubs,
in the workplace,
in all social situations.

I wish I could offer this workshop for free. I would like to spread its good news as wide as possible… but I have to pay for its production, which is not cheap because it’s well done and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
The dvd is $24. Postage free… tax free.

Makes an excellent gift for weddings, anniversaries, graduations…
