The Radio Show

Are you excited to get up in the morning and tear into another day? Or do you dread everything about it? Do you ever wonder, "Is that all there is?" Even if what gnaws at you is mostly background, we want to put the bounce back in your step.

Hi. I'm Maureen Anderson, host of Doing What Works -- a nationally-syndicated radio talk show that helps you fix what you don't like about your life. We talk to the experts -- about finding work you love, being healthy, even getting along better with your teenager -- and we share those conversations with you.

I hope you can catch the show on one of dozens of affiliates across the country, but if you never want to miss an interview you can subscribe to the podcast. For quick bursts of inspiration, subscribe to my blog or check out my latest Huffington Post post. For microbursts of inspiration, follow me on Twitter. You can also buy one of my books or hire me as a speaker.

This photograph was taken by Danielle Laporte. It's of my favorite place in the world, Manhattan -- at my favorite time of day, dusk. It looks like you've arrived somewhere exciting, doesn't it? That's how I want you to feel about your life. Starting ... now!

    Ever wonder how some people figure out what the experts miss? Wall Street Journal writer Greg Zuckerman joins us to talk about The Greatest Trade Ever -- which was good news to our family, eventually! Then Amy Gibson -- who's suffered from alopecia since she was a girl -- talks hair loss in this encore edition of the show.

    Listen Sunday from 8-10p Pacific. Thanks!

    If you don't know -- or don't want to know -- how Beauty and the Beast ends, don't read my next tweet.

    A little kid can't contain himself at a NYC screening of Beauty and the Beast. When Gaston falls to his death the kid yells, "Finally!"

    3/18/17, 2 am, NYC: “I guess I can cross ‘seeing a guy in a shamrock onesie grabbing his junk’ off my bucket list,” 21YO says. #TheKaOfKatie

    “The members of one’s true family seldom grow up under the same roof.” via
