What is this website all about?
I believe in the power of YOU, and my mission is to help you feel beautiful, powerful and special. I’m here to help you transform the way you feel so that in turn, you transform your life and the world around you. This website exists to help build a community and brand to accomplish that mission.
So what will I find on SammyD.TV?
I create content and transformational exercises that help you to write, speak and love yourself more. From changing the world around you with your happiness, consciously creating a world you love with your positive thoughts and letting go of the need to be perfect to live authentically and awesomely, here’s where self-love rules the world because when we can authentically appreciate and accept ourselves for who we are, we can do the same with everyone else. This creates peace, prosperity and positivity for all.
My teaching focuses on the power of affirmation writing and exercises for positive thinking to affirm your inherent power. I believe that when you realize your power, you can create all that you wish to create in the world. And girl … I know that’s a LOT.
How can I connect with you elsewhere on the world wide web?
My business is your business. I’m here to serve, inspire and connect. I am a teacher but I am also a student. You found my site because you have something to offer me, too.
Please share your self – your life – your light with me by saying hello on social media.
All business inquiries can be emailed to Sammy@SammyD.TV
Why are you an evangelist for affirmation writing? And what’s affirmation writing all about, anyway?
A few years ago I turned to the power of affirmation writing as a tool to heal and feel peace in the moment now. I was transitioning from a full time job at Esquire Magazine to a career as a fledgling entrepreneur in the digital space. When the going got tough and I felt insecure, powerless and downright unhappy, I picked up my paper and pen and started to write. And what came out of me, and what created peace in my heart, were affirmative statements that lifted me higher and inspired gratitude for my life now.
Affirmation writing, journaling and self-love exercises are daily spiritual practices for me, but there’s a science behind it all: Anchoring feelings of positivity through affirmation writing will literally rewire our brains from a negative to a positive thinking pattern.
The repetitive nature of affirmation writing is like exercising the muscle of self-love. The more we do it, the more natural and effortless simply loving ourselves no matter the circumstances becomes.
So how are you going to make me feel more powerful, beautiful and special?
Great question! Here’s the thing: You’re already powerful, beautiful and special. In fact, my belief is that there’s nothing wrong with any of us! We’re already perfect, whole and complete. It’s just a matter of uncovering the layers that block our hearts from believing, seeing and finally, feeling that.
And when we feel our power, when we feel our beauty, when we feel our specialness: nothing can stop us from living the lives we’ve always imagined.
This website and my classes, courses, consultations and general energy for you and the world was created to share the power of affirmation writing and exercises for positive thinking to affirm our inherent power.

So wait … THAT WAS YOU on the Nate Berkus show a few years ago?!
Yup! That was me. I had an amazing time working with producers, crew and of course, Nate Berkus himself. The best part of the entire show? When I told him “I was under pressure like the David Bowie song.”

And then there’s that thing about your name … Sammy Davis? Were your parents big fans of the Rat Pack or something?
Actually, I was named after “Samantha” on Bewitched. But the name Sammy stuck and after reading Sammy Davis, Jr’s motivational autobiography “Yes I Can,” I knew I was meant to carry on the legacy of a star performer and man who overcame obstacles to pursue his dreams.
