Twin Cities Dystonia Zoo Walk

Hey Team-BillyMac!!!! Pretty much all of you know about my battle with dystonia that stretches over a decade. I have not said much or asked you to support the search for a cure even though some of you have done so on your own over these many years. Thank you! Now, I'm asking for your help - and it's not just limited to Minneapolis/St. Paul! Please read further: The first annual Twin Cities Dystonia Zoo Walk will be held Saturday, June 11th, 2016 at the Como Zoo, with all proceeds benefiting the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation.

Billy Speaks at Minnesota SHRM 2013 Conference

On October 13, Billy McLaughlin kicked off the annual conference for the Minnesota Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The conference brought together human resource professionals and consultants for new ideas, shared thoughts and best practices in employee engagement, education and new ways at looking at HR problems. Following his kickoff speech, Billy, accompanied by his string quartet, added an unprecedented element to the evening’s festivities as well. For an event that is typically filled with continuing education and legal content, Billy and his ensemble were a deviation from the norm. Attendees responded positively to Billy’s addition.

Spirit of Success

Anyone who knows me knows how much I believe in the power that we have within ourselves to change life for the better, even when challenges come our way. If all the tools, technology, experience and skill you accumulated were to be taken away overnight, like what happened to me, you'd still have 99.9 percent of what you need to move forward and make life a better place for yourself and those you care about. Looking back at what I learned, I believe we have only scratched the surface of our true potential as individuals and as a society. The source of that potential is not in knowing more things or having more money. It's in the truth that becomes obvious once all those things are gone, when you finally pay attention to the person, the soul, who has been there all along.
