Social Anxiety Talks with Mark Metry 🎙️ on Big Kat Lounge Podcast Ep 68
Today's guest has been a Forbes featured TEDx speaker, host of a global top 100 podcast, bestselling author, documentary series cast member, who is helping the world effectively manage social anxiety. He takes his personal life and his habits very seriously. People don’t see results in their life because they aren’t consistent. The human brain is so interesting because it can normalize anything. When you do the same stuff everyday you feel stuck. Certain habits like meditation teaches our brains how to rewire our brain cells to give us that boosted confidence. In 2017 Mark Metry was in a spot in his life where he didn’t know what to do. Some of his biggest realizations came when he was having 1 on 1 honest conversations. You look at your goals and you don’t compare yourself to anyone negatively. Comparing yourself to other people can be a great thing if done correctly. Some key nuggets that really hit home were the fact that Mark doesn't go on social media before he posts, which helps tremendously as you can go down a rabbit hole if you start scrolling and consuming toxic information.  I recently enrolled in Mark's Social Anxiety program and I believe it’s something that we all need in our lives: This was a great episode where we touched upon mental health, social anxiety, systems, his book & programs, how to build confidence and much more. When you smile in the moment, it gives you more control. If you or your company is interested in Mark speaking at any of your events, conferences, please reach out and text him at 508-925-0261.

Break Mindset Barriers with Bobby Dsouza💥 on BKL Ep 67
Today's guest is a person who completely connects to humans authentically. He can forge relationships and build connections right away. He understands the struggles of everyday people and through his conversations, podcast, mastermind classes, interactions you can witness his leadership at hand. As speakers we were all used to speaking in person and not virtually. The natural connection can never be replaced. As of this recording he was able to reach over 156 organizations. There is a lack of courage, too much fear going around in the world with a lot of stories. We shouldn’t make things worse than it is. Whether it’s a health issue, people get scared and stop taking positive action. People build on courage, pause, reflect and take massive action to do the best they can. Bobby Dsouza and I touched upon leadership, a hybrid model for when we come back into the office and much more.  Small steps will never despise small beginnings. It’s so easy to move to the bed or go to the couch and sleep when working from home. Every action we take has a significant impact for the future. One key takeaway from our lounge talk with Bobby was the importance of having a trusted guide or mentor at an early age. The type of people you have in your life is crucial. You have to surround yourself with the right people and be intentional. Bobby Dsouza fell a lot of times and made a lot of mistakes which can be found further in his Fallen to Rise book on Amazon.  Fallen to Rise book: Bobby Dsouza Inspires Podcast: To listen to this episode and all other Big Kat Lounge talks head to #motivationalspeaker #virtual #keynote #engaging #team #inspire #barriers #mindsets #performance #bobbydsouza #bigkatlounge

Aviation Talks with Matheus Lemes Navarro 🇧🇷✈️ on the BKL Episode 56
Welcome to the Big Kat Lounge Podcast Episode 56 with Matheus Lemes Navarro 🇧🇷✈️ Today’s guest comes from Goiania, Goias, Brazil, where he is a pilot looking for new placement in the market. He has aircraft experience embraer phenom, cessna citation, beechcraft king air, piper seneca II, cessna, piper turbo, and much more. Aviation was vanished from the world due to the Covid 19 spreader, as the airlines were the ones who transported the virus if you think about it.  The pilots, ground crew, staff were all laid off.  Most of the pilots around the world only know how to fly, as that is what they studied solely to become.  The industry is coming back and things are looking upward with Brazilian & American companies purchasing new aircraft. We need to be prepared for the future with staying up to date with courses, because once things go back to full capacity, we need to be up to speed with the new processes to align ourselves for when companies ramp up with hiring. We touched upon the air ambulance services where he had to move Covid patients through transferring from one hospital to another. He provides the fuel, designates the crew members, the logistics, the entire planning from start to finish.  Matheus must know every single detail such as if the runway will have lighting support, if there is inclement weather how should we handle situations, where is the alternate fuel source nearby. During transoceanic flights there are regions where you have no communications, it's radio silent, it’s just you and your sidekick beside you, the passengers & the water below you. In these isolated regions such as rainforest, icy areas there are no radars. “Those that are not seen are not remembered." Did you know that Qatar Airways' global presence makes it one of the highest-paying airlines in the world for pilots. The Qatar Airways pilot salary is an average of between $173,975 to $187,844 per year. Not the norm for the rest of the industry. It was a fun episode to get to know more about flying from a pilot's perspective.

It’s not easy at all, you need to think about how will you cover your expenses." We touched upon the importance of the frankincense from Ethiopia with SHIMANI's products. Bulgaria is a country rich in nature and it helps to relax us with it's mountainous scenery. Ideas are constantly flowing to Stacy's head when she is walking down the street, as her mind is free. Hair loss is a post effect of Covid as over 25% of people are getting it. Stacy asked the formulator to make something natural and they were able to create one that contains over 12 oils. One key ingredient that was added was black cumin and after 3 months the hair loss stopped.  Though you can't see it happening, every minute of the day we lose about 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells off the surface of our skin. So just in the time it took you to read this far, you've probably lost about 40,000 cells. That's almost 9 pounds (4 kilograms) of cells every year!

Tanya Lulu is the founder and Editor-In-Chief of LuluLand Post. Her vision is to create a reliable news source and blog by creative souls, who are dedicated to producing quality content for readers to enjoy. LuluLand Post is dedicated to covering news, politics, business, culture, social justice & life experiences. Some of our discussions were regarding the differences in education systems between the USA & Japan, what fueled her passion to learn new languages, how we are all capable of writing everyday, as you are texting or emailing, you are doing some form of writing everyday. “The best people you can teach compassion and real world issues is children.” With this generation, we have the internet, the children will see things no matter what, it’s better if adults now have a chance to explain it to them. You might as well control the narrative to show them this is reality, this is going to happen, this is a scary thing, let’s talk about what we can do to help people out in these situations. Racial injustice talking in the schools it’s very telling, if a 5th grader in Tokyo, Japan can come up with the solution, why can’t we as adults come up with one. We highlighted some of the challenges for being a freelance writer, how language learners focus too much on language tenses and not speaking in front of others.  🎙️🐆🐅 Please rate and subscribe to help us grow!

BKL Episode 48 with Nick Rotich 🏦
Welcome to the Big Kat Lounge Podcast Episode 48 with Nick Rotich 🏦 Today's guest comes from the Greater Phoenix area where he is pursuing his Masters in Strategic Analytics. He's a big data enthusiastist, an immigrant from Kenya, a father and husband always looking for new ways to accel at new challenges that he encounters. He moved to the USA without knowing people and is always open for networking opportunities to learn from others. Nick and I met during our time at Credit Suisse back in North Carolina.  Some of our discussions touched upon the opportunities that we all have in this world where we can meet new people and make a living. The USA is a melting pot for entrepreneurial skills, and you can really see the results through hard work. We all have the tools and resources around us it’s just being able to continuously learn, network and maximize the time by connecting with the right people, pivoting with various roles and tasks we have to perform throughout our lives. LinkedIn made connecting with people a lot easier like as if you know them. If you are looking for a company or role you can learn so much just by going through their page and reading upon posts. 80% data preparation & 20% is focused towards analytics in most large institutions. There are so many different tools out there for us to learn but Microsoft Excel is basics first to be able to learn other complex tools. Large institutions are still spending a lot of their efforts in excel, so if you can understand the basics of excel it helps you to have a line of thought when it comes to learning Tableau, Microsoft BI or any other complex tools. The importance on how to manipulate data with pivot tables, & presentation views is key for storyboarding and being able to sort through data quickly. When you have an excel base you can learn the other tools.

BKL Episode 45 with Mama Epps 😌🍃
Welcome to the Big Kat Lounge Podcast Episode 45 with Mama Epps 😌🍃 Today's guest comes from Wisconsin where she is the CEO G&L Wellness for Hemp Sisters & Hemp Sisters Nation. Her vision is to bring people together, network & educate the world about the misunderstanding of the hemp plant on the planet. She gave up her career for this plant, she will spend the rest of her days educating the world about it’s use. She was forced to resign from teaching high school health outside of Chicago for refusing to teach cannabis propaganda.  It’s her mission with blogs and podcasts to teach what’s going on. There is still a stigma associated with the hemp plant - cbd vs thc endocannabinoid system, a lot of propaganda...there is significant change coming and we will continue to grow. Below are some of the topics we touched upon: States that still frown upon CBD and the need for a doctor's note even though the farm bill was passed 3 years ago. We have to keep up with the ever changing regulations, which is extremely difficult in a country full of uncertainty.  The latest news was vape supplies being shipped may be banned by the United States Postal Service. There are strict compliance and business practices that need to be met to ensure we are in line with what the rest of the world is doing. Having more lab tests, to know what chemicals are in there. Tests are yielding different results illegal vs legal. Mama Epps is a trusted cannabis industry leader for over a decade providing educational content and it was a pleasure having her on the Big Kat Lounge podcast.

BKL Episode 43 with Clinton Walker 🔐
Welcome to the Big Kat Lounge Podcast Episode 43 with Clinton Walker 🔐 Today's guest comes from Nottingham, England, United Kingdom where he is a Cybersecurity management expert, board member, entrepreneur, restauranteur, facilitator, mentor, host of TalkInfoSec podcast where he talks about all things information security and much more.  In this day and age there is a lack of awareness with cyber security and being proactive helps tremendously before a breach occurs. We can educate people, but if it never happens to them with experiencing a breach they push it aside, as the mentality is on immediately getting your job done. Hacking is a numbers game, knowing the different types of controls, it's not a matter of if, it’s when it comes public. Operate as if you have been breached. There are so many that occur daily until it hits the headlines. Hackers are harvesting our data and constantly finding new ways to use it against us. Awareness brings clarity and actionable intel. There are a lot of tools we have to monitor traffic on our network or systems. This episode was a lot of fun to gain further insight into various areas of cybersecurity. We look forward to having Clinton Walker on the show again in the future.  To follow Clinton's journey please subscribe to his TalkInfoSec Podcast: He can also be found here: Thank you so much for tuning into the show!

BKL Episode 40 with Sabrina Diaz💡🏠
Welcome to the Big Kat Lounge Podcast Episode 40 with Sabrina Diaz💡🏠 Today’s guest comes from Hollywood, Florida. She is the co-writer of Keep Going - a book collaboration of 8 women who share their memoirs on strength, courage, and perseverance. Her daily goal is to dissolve the space between us as we create common ground and more reasons to see the good in each other. She is fully bilingual in English and Spanish with the awareness to tailor campaigns and increase profit in an integrative and rapidly changing world. Our conversations ranged from pageants, talking about enjoying the process, the journey, importance of communication, who she was and who she was going to become, collaborating with new people, co-writing a book, spirituality, being transparent, worth is not bought, it’s good to make healthy choices, but it’s about that 1 on 1 self with our faith and GOD, nature & beauty around us. Writing has really saved Sabrina, as it helped her identify many things in herself that she wouldn’t identify otherwise. Sabrina discovered "authenticity that didn’t rely on her looks, whether she had makeup on or not, any physical aspect, it relied upon what her emotions were and what she was allowing to say to herself, the raw and authentic unfiltered version. When we can live from this space it’s the most liberating and fulfilled." We enjoyed having Sabrina on the Big Kat Lounge Podcast and look forward to having her on in the future.
