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, 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 HuffPost archives. You can follow me on Twitter for fun, buy one of my books, or hire me as a speaker.

  • On the Radio

    An important conversation about depression and the warning signs of suicide. A light-hearted conversation about what works with children. And a sleep-inducing conversation -- we hope!

    Listen to those podcasts, or catch new episodes of the show Sundays at 11a Eastern. There's a refeed at 11p.

    Your children can teach you a lot if you're paying attention!

    Give people what you want most in all the world. And what do we all want? Someone to listen to our stories.
