See Me Almost Cry

Written by: Nick Ortner

Those that know me personally know I can be a bit of a softie, especially when it comes to my family, to amazing achievements, to feeling proud, to feeling love…

So when my sister Jessica asked me to introduce her at her book launch party in New York city last Thursday, I knew I was in trouble. 😉

Watch what happened next, see the star of the evening shine, and get ready to laugh at some hysterical pictures.


The best part of the book launch party was probably the photo booth! See why below. 🙂

Don’t let Jessica’s face fool you. She’s just as crazy as us.
From left to right, Dad, Nick, Jessica, Alex and Mom.

My wife and Jessica’s childhood best friend, Brenna, fits right in!

SHAPE.com Wellness expert Heidi Kristoffer and “The Earth Diet” Author Leiana Werner-Gray are excited about the new book!

Some people couldn’t wait to start reading!

One of these 6 people is not an Ortner. I know, it’s a hard guess. ☺ That’s New York Times Best Selling Author Dr. Mark Hyman joining in on the fun!

    Jessica,
    Best wishes on your book…you had the courage to move beyond your fears and doubts in order to bring your truth into the world. I believe it is part of your destiny, your gift to the betterment of this struggling planet. So be proud of yourself, you are an awesome young woman…the world is far richer because you are here.

    Jessica, I loved your speech!! I have your book which I already started reading and tapping too. I love it!! I am so glad you shared your story with all of us!
    I also have your book Nick and I am reading that as well and tapping.
    Sometimes I feel like you guys are speaking to me and I think, “How do they know?” It’s amazing!! Thank you!
    The other day one of my sons saw me tapping and as one of my other sons was approaching, I hear my first son say, “I think mom is crazy” And I just cracked up in the middle of my tapping. I though it was so hilarious! I can only imagine what I looked like!! hahahaha
    Anyway, thank you guys so much!! I love you!!
    Veronica

    Jessica you are so incredible and REAL. I feel so sad that you had to spend one second thinking bad about yourself but so incrediably happy that you have come to love and see yourself the way you should have all along.

  23. Pam says:

    I must be an honorary Ortner as this video made me cry! I’m in chapter 8 of Jessica’s book and am so blessed! Almost like she has “read my mail” she wrote with such authority and compassion! Thank you for tapping your way through this process Jessica because you are changing my life with your book and transparency! I’m overjoyed at how you shine and it really does give me inspiration and ” permission” to shine also! Most grateful, Pam Campbell

  24. Rhonda says:

    Congratulations Jessica. I have seen you inspire and grow with this tapping work over the years. You have a great message of how to be who you are at your ideal weight or not. Too many people waste precious time fighting pounds that they don’t want to wear.

    I will add that when you commit yourself to a healthful plant-based and raw diet you no longer have to go from diet to diet. It is the best one I have found works great for me.

    All my best to you in your success of sharing your message. -Rhonda

  25. Pat says:
