VIDEOS: Speaker Dave Lieber solves life’s problems in less than a minute

   As a motivational speaker who helps audiences live better lives, I have learned that it’s my job to solve every known problem in the universe in less than a minute. And also, don’t forget, put it on video!

   If you think I’m kidding, I’m not. I’ve always had a fantasy of creating short 1-minute video tips of the day, but the project was bigger than I could handle. Then something happened that allowed me to complete phase one of the project.

   I work as The Watchdog investigative columnist for The Dallas Morning News. Happy to report that the paper supported me on my dream project. I’ve released several dozen “Watchdog Video Tip of the Day” shorts. Solving life’s problems in under a minute.

   It’s part self-help, but more of pointing people in the right direction.

   Thanks to my sidekick Marina Trahan Martinez who helps me.
