A Bend in the Road is not the End of the Road

Joan speaks frequently on the topics of motivation, inspiration and change. Leaving her seat on Good Morning America after two decades, making her the longest-running morning show host ever, Joan had to deal with reinventing herself in front of millions of Americans. She has toured with Tony Robbins sharing her "10 Positive Principles for Dealing with Change."  

The Ten Best Secrets to Success

Joan shares her personal story of making it to the top of the tough television news business as well as how she reinvented herself launching her own Smart&Simple Solution brand on QVC. Joan also discusses what she’s learned from highly successful business tycoons to U.S. Presidents that she’s interviewed over her three decades as a journalist. As one of the most well-known working moms in the country, Joan also talks about balancing home and family: how to keep your family values, still have dinner together and have “non-texting” family time all the while being a successful working woman.

The Secrets To Living Younger Longer

With three best-selling books on health; Healthy Cooking, Healthy Living and Growing up Healthy, Joan is constantly asked how she remains so young and vibrant. In this personal and motivational talk, Joan shares what she’s learned from the experts she’s interviewed and how she stays at the top of her game.   

Now That We Have It All, How Do We Do it All?

On the topic of women's changing roles and balancing work and family, Joan shares her personal story as one of the first women in America to bring her baby to work when she became the host of Good Morning America, setting a trend for corporations across the country. Joan takes a historical look at how life has changed dramatically for women in America over the past few decades, from her interviews with women’s activist Gloria Steinem to Betty Freidan on her social-changing book The Feminine Mystique to Gail Sheehy on the passages of women’s lives. Joan explores some of the new challenges women face holding down jobs outside the home while caring for their families, in this national debate about women's roles that is still going strong today. 

America’s Next Health Crisis; Caring for Our Aging Parents as People Live Longer Than Ever Before

66 million Americans are caregivers for someone they love, and that is 30% of the U.S. population. Some experts are predicting that figure will triple over the next decade. A longer life expectancy has led to an increased demand for family members to serve as caregivers. Caregiving can be a demanding, stressful and seemingly thankless job and often devastates families economically. It is without doubt this is the next health crisis facing our country. Joan shares her personal experience of caring for her 93 year old mother while still working and raising young children. We all know that the day will come when we have to deal with the demise of parent, a spouse or another family member. There is no escaping this aspect of life; however many find it difficult to discuss end-of-life issues. However Joan does just that as host of RLTV’s Taking Care with Joan Lunden, a  program about family caregiving, and also as co-author of the soon-to-be-released Chicken Soup for the Soul; Family Caregivers.  Joan discusses her seven secrets to success for caregivers.

I Was Not Born Blonde or Jewish

A personal account of moving East to the Big Apple, making it in the media and converting to Judaism, all choices that played a part in shaping Joan’s life. This is a humorous yet inspirational discussion about how one’s life choices can bring them happiness.
