New Book Alert: The Truth About Men by Devon Franklin

The Truth About Men
This past weekend I had the distint pleasure of meeting Devon Franklin on Atlanta & Company and agian later at his book signing for his new book, “The Truth About Men.” Have you ever met someone and instantly felt connected like you had known them your entire lives? Well, that is how it felt meeting Devon. He is as genuine as they come, and a self made powerhouse! He is also a fatherless son which was a big part in him wanting to write this book. After coming to terms with both his dad’s untimely death and infidelity… he wondered, do all men cheat? He set out to write a book to encourage both men and women on what it is to give and receive the love from a man. I have to say, he hit it out of the park. It is a must read for anyone looking for love or to love even better.

My New Segment Friend to Friend on NBC’s Atlanta & Company Can Help You Get Your Friend Back!

Friend to Friend

Do you have a friend that you have lost touch with and you miss them? Perhaps you and a friend had a falling out and with space you have formed enough clarity to revisit the friendship but you just don”t know how to make the first move. Why is it that we will go to therapy to mend a failed marriage, but we will not seek the help we need to a broken friendship? These are the questions that kept swirling around my head when I came up with the idea for this segment. If you are in search of the answers or want a friendemption, contact me at Denna@DennaBabul.com. Pose your question via email and we may just ask you to be a guest on the show. We love bringing friendships back together. We need our friends, and I want to get your girl back!

My Neighborhood is Cooler Than Yours: The Giving Tree

I dearly love my neighborhood. Just the other day I was out for a walk when I came upon the giving tree. A tree one of my neighbors has devoted to helping others live their best lives. Each branch holds a dream wish for the scribers new year. Each person who passes the tree is welcomed with a mix of colorful pens, note pad and ribbon to play along. I can’t tell you how much pride that tree brings me. Thank you to the neighbor who had the forthought to offer our neighborhood such a beautiful gift. P.S. My wish was to take my message to help all women turn their pain into power to a global platform in 2019!

HBO Theatre: Let’s Reimagine: Parentloss

Purpose: The Second Act of Loss

What a surreal moment to walk down the halls of HBO in NYC and into the theatre where a picture of you and your book are staring back at you from the screen. I was so moved to be part of such an excellent expert line up speaking on parent loss in NYC last week. I was joined by Cara Belvin of EMPOWERher, Hope Edelman of Motherless Daughters, Rebecca Soffer who co-wrote Modern Loss, Meghan O’Rourke who wrote The Long Goodbye, Cynthia Whipple who help found The Conversation: Stories that Matter, and so many more amazing people dedicating their lives to helping people through grief. What a rewarding experience!

New Segment: Friend to Friend on NBC

Friend to Friend

In today’s climate we need our friends more than ever. Why is it that women will go to couple’s therapy to heal an intimate relationship but won’t do the work to heal a friendship? I got to thinking about that question and decided to do something about it. I wrote a show and have started a segment on NBC’s Atlanta & Company to help other women understand their friendship issues better. If you have a friendship question you are seeking advice for email me at Denna@DennaBabul.com

Camping is my jam!

Camping is my new jam! Campowerment is the beautiful sisterhood I never knew I was missing. We cried. We laughed. We ate. We healed. We learned. We bonded. Such a powerful experience. I never thought  I would say this, but screw the Ritz…I’d rather go to Campowerment.

Denna’s Book of the Month

Denna’s Book of the Month

I stumbled upon this book after watching Steve Job’s comencement speech at Standford. I was looking for inspiration for a leadership course and ended up coming across his daughter, Lisa Brennan-Jobs debut memoir. Coincidenally, it was Lisa, not her father who ended up inspiring me the most. I never tire of hearing stores of women who have turned their pain into power into purpose. This is a revealing read behind the doors of her infamous father’s rise to fame and their difficult father-daughter relationship along the way. Anyone who has hoped for a better realtionship with a parent will relate to her story.
