“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are… You are the hero of your own story.”
Joseph Campbell

Now that you know me and some of the two-leggers who helped shape my dream, we’d love to get to know you. Here are some fun games my family & team have played over the years to get to know ourselves, our dreams, & each other’s so that we can fight to live our best life together. 


1. Make

Make your own CATCH-M. Here are some of ours:

My kids with the Holle Twins having fun with their CATCH-M creations!
Moms having fun with CATCH-M
Us MOMS remembering and celebrating that we can catch CATCH-M too!

Draw your CATCH-M in the dirt, imaginary in the wind, on paper, socks, shirts, with paint, crayons, ink, whatever you think. There is no right or wrong, just the fun of creation as you realize how important a smile can be to achieving your dream.

Also, have a blast taking your smile on a CATCH-M ADVENTURE: on a trip, a school field trip, to dinner, or where ever you choose. Remind others on your journey to celebrate their smiles too, take pictures & journal as you do.

Build a LIVE BIG COMMUNITY on your adventure & find as many ways in a day to catch CATCH-M together—To make someone SMILE builds a FORTUNE-FILLED TREASURE CHEST for all.

2. Write

 My dream to write a book began with this game, “BUILD YOUR DREAM BOARD – YOUR LIFE’S TREASURE MAP.” It’s a fun, dynamic way to see your dreams come true. It’s like a Treasure Map of sorts showing you which way to go to achieve your dreams 

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attraction’s,” said Einstein. So start imagining your HERO’S JOURNEY. Write out your story. Start with the Dream Book Download or use my hero, Joesph Campbell’s framework from his book The Hero’s Journey, to create your own framework to keep you true to your Heroic Quest too!

3. Play


I used to perform my “BOOM SHAKE SONG” alone. Then I got brave & played it with my four-legged friends, & finally with my family so that I would not give up on my dream.

My sweet dogs even wrote their own BOOM SHAKE SONGS. Here is the small white dog named Yeti’s song that he sang over & over again while racing and chasing balls hoping that his dream to be the fastest dog on the street could come true. Until YES! He finally wins. He beats Tilly & gets to the ball first. The song he sang is written under the photos below to show his Heroic Quest:

Dog Fun
“Wuff! Wuff! Look at me, my name is YETI!
Dog Dreams of Racing Fun
And YES! I can be… The fastest dog on the street!”

4. Create

Create your own “Termite Tricks” like the termites did in THE LIVE BIG BOOK TRILOGY! Have a blast encouraging others so that together we can all keep fighting for our dreams!

5. Share

Share a list of your favorite books, looks, foods, moods, color, toys, games, songs to sing, places to seek, and whatever you think can inspire you. We’d love to get to know you.

Most important – Share stories about your dreams coming true or stories of other two-legged, four-legged heroes, who inspire you. Include anything – photos, videos, drawings, whatever you think!

Please share it all along with your CATCH-M, your Dreams, songs, codes, notes, riddles, & whatever else you think

Share them on social media with a #LIVEBIG #CATCHM so that we can build a WE community that celebrates the thrill of fighting, sharing, & achieving our dreams together. “WE” can build a better world filled with love, fun, friends, & family just like Termite did!

We’d love to hear from you.

Thank you new found friends for sharing, and know no matter where you go or where you’ve been that you are extraordinary! You are full of possibility! You bring special light into all of our lives!
