Today’s American lives in Texas by way of Puerto Rico.

Shayla Rivera is a lady of many talents.  She’s  a rocket scientist and worked on the shuttle and space station programs with NASA.  She’s a comedian, and I met her as the emcee of an awards show I produced a few years back.  She’s also a professor and teaches at Texas A&M University.

You'll enjoy her humor and no-nonsense views on success and "being in charge" of your life.

A quote to watch for:  “When you make someone laugh the gap between you and that person just gets narrower and narrower.  If you laugh together then you realize you can be together.”
