Barbara Grassey is a professional instructor, speaker, writer and former stand up comic. She’s jumped out of airplanes, touched a whale in the wild, and sailed internationally on cruise ships. She’s lived many of her dreams and is committed to helping others achieve their dreams.
What causes one person to pursue her dreams while others spend their lives wondering “What if”? It starts with a deep need to not settle for an ordinary life. And, says Barbara, a “totally mis-placed sense of self-confidence.”
The biggest step is learning to face fear. “I know what it is like to wake up at three a.m. in a cold sweat with my head spinning, worrying about how I am going to pull off my latest deal. I also know that I am going to have to figure out what to do to make it all work because no one is going to do it for me. Sometimes there is no logical reason for me to think something is going to work out, except for the fact that I have made things work out before. If you have done something once, you know you can do it again. Self-confidence is built through experience, good and bad. I show women how to stair-step small victories into major triumphs.”
In addition to Don’t Make Me Slap You, she is the author of three ebooks on real estate: Fast Money In Real Estate: Secrets of a Bird Dog, Hard Money and the Hard Money Directory. Barbara has written dinner theatre shows, sketch comedy and musical reviews as well as comedy routines for herself and other comics. Her 1930s interactive hot box review, Tommy Gunn, showcased at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas.
Barbara has appeared on local (Tampa area) talk shows and has been interviewed by print, radio and television media. Barbara received her B.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She currently resides in Clearwater, Florida.
“A lot of people sell hope. They package it up in pretty wrappings and sayings and buzzwords and at the end of the day, it is all air, no substance. I don’t need to sell hope. I have found that when you give people direction, they give themselves hope. And it is a hope that lasts because it comes from within, not from somebody spouting platitudes.”

Don’t Make Me Slap You is for women who are willing to work for what they want, not wish and whine for it. Visualization is a great start. But it takes action to create the traction to gain the momentum you need to attain your goals.
