Why is a new non-profit getting so much press attention? Here is why…..

Believe me, no one is more surprised than me that after just 4-5 months of launching our website and social media handles we have over 15,000 followers on Facebook, nearly 5500 on Instagram and a lot of press. It all started with a nearly half page article in the OC Register in July 2014 introducing us to our local area which lead to other media outlets reaching out to discuss what we are doing and why. Then came other periodicals, radio shows, blogging networks, online news and media outlets which gave us such an amazing platform to get where we […]

The Single Most Important Piece In the News Today – And It Doesn’t Involve ISIS or Ebola

I have a love/hate relationship with social media. I have friends all over so I love that it keeps me connected with them but hate that it has caused so many problems in our youth. There is no truer statement than the one I have heard lately, “I am so glad social media, camera phones and fingertip technology wasn’t around when I was in school”. Amen. What has been cool about social media however in these past few months is watching the ideologies of ISP flourish and grow to over 10K followers on Facebook and over 5K on Instagram in […]

During the Ferguson, MO Tragedy, St. Louis Dispatch Called ISP Asking Us About Kindness

I have mentioned in previous posts as much as I stay abreast of world news and politics I try not to watch the news too often. This is mainly because it just makes me overwhelmed and sad these days watching the current atrocities and suffering across the globe. I prefer reading online news or the recent Time issue with basic facts and images. In the last month we are all aware of the Ferguson, Missouri tragedy of Michael Brown. We all saw the violent protests, looting and anger that filled their streets for days. Being a native of Southern California I couldn’t help […]

Radio Interview #3: Why We Need to Teach Our Kids Kindness & Compassion at Age 3

We have been so fortunate to have so much support in the beginning stages of the Infinite Smile Project. We are edging up to our launch date of September 22nd and have been lucky enough to be interviewed several times in the last couple of weeks. The following is my interview from Tuesday that discusses the reasons behind ISP, what is going to happen during our launch (can we say prizes and giveaways?), and what is in store for the future. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ul91IsY7C4Y For me, the most valuable part was discussing why I feel starting at age 3 teaching our kids […]

The Infinite Smile Project’s story in OC’s biggest newspaper

This is our half-page article in the Orange County Register on Tuesday, July 15, 2014. Thank you so much, Suzanne, for making this happen. We were so excited about our article and all the amazing feedback we received today. We are truly blessed. Life never stops at the Esmond household. A husband that makes the dreaded 405 commute from Orange County to LAX every day, two crazy toddlers, and me, the creator and owner of a multi-city children’s dance company running over 145 classes a week and managing 20 instructors. I doubt there is a need to state that I […]

11:00pm Co-Host Tomorrow?

So what do you do when you get a text at 11:00pm the day before to co-host a radio show in Hollywood? You cancel all your work the next day, get Daddy to take the kids to dinner and a movie and you get on the 5 freeway. For 2 hours. Or 3, because it is Friday Los Angeles traffic after all and we all know that means. Clearly it means you will sit in a parking lot of traffic for approximately half your day.   But was it worth it? Always. Tony Sweet & Eddie Conner, you make me […]
