Truth vs. Distortions of Truth, FBI Raids, and Consequences
In this episode, I am talking about the ultimate gaslighting phrase, "There can be more than one truth." I'm afraid I have to disagree! There is the truth, and then there are distortions of that truth. Examining the motivations of the powers will lead you to the truth of why they do what they do. Teaching our children to be critical thinkers and immune to gaslighting is the only way we will shift out of this distortion and get back to the truth. Are you ready to dismantle the structures that bring us suffering? Listen in, and don't forget to support! Please support this podcast! Learn about my coaching services and more!

Roe v. Wade Reversal! America is Revealing Its Roots in Mental Illness.
In this episode, I am talking about the monumental steps back to the dark ages the Supreme Court religious judges have started. How we can teach our boys not to suppress their emotions and be more confident so they can be the type of men women want to have children with. I discuss my theories of why these people do and support this abusive ideology and why cognitive dissonance is so prevalent.   Roe is not the only constitutionally protected right they are going after but many others. As countries in the world are progressing like Iceland, Finland, and Norway are making strides in equity and human rights, the religious right in America has once again thrown Emotional Intelligence out the window to force feudal European ideology and hold hierarchal structures in place. Will they ever learn from history or will they continue to force the rest of us into the dark ages? Many have compared the current times to the book Handmaiden's Tale. I see this but this has been our reality for a lot longer than we want to admit.  Listen in and go out to the streets! It's time to protect the future of children because this is not a debate about abortion it's a fight for freedom and women's rights. Change the reality and make it a safe place for our children and then women may want to have them! Please support this podcast! Learn about my coaching services and more!

The Buffalo Mass Shooting and Why Does This Keep Happening?

How does a lack of emotional intelligence play into all of these tragedies and how INCELs are at the root of so much of the hate that spewing all over the internet?

Why is Fear Crippling Us and How Can We Overcome It?
In this episode, I am examining the use of fear to stop the growth of humanity. Fear is the root cause of all the emotions that cripple us as a society and the narcissism used is criminal. Fear has been used for eons by the powerful to bend the rest of humanity to their will. Most of our fears are a manipulation for profit and the moment we start realize the reality created for majority is actually perpetuated by the minority, we can start taking back that power. Who is ready for a shift? I am and if we don't, how much of a future will our children have? Are you afraid? Don't be! We CAN fix it if we become emotionally intelligent. Please support this podcast!

The Slap Was A Trauma Response
In this episode, I am talking about the Oscars and the Slap. I want to get honest about why and not if it was right or wrong. Obvious slapping another person is not the right way to deal with problems or disagreements, but violence is a foundational part of American history. We would be delusional to pretend that it does not come out. We are constantly exposed to it through the media, and if we want to get to self-regulation, we need to be self-aware about what entertains us and what we allow to ENTER us. We all have trauma responses, and if your examples have been violence, there is a higher likelihood of it to present in this way, whether verbal or physical.

War is Stupid and So is Every "ism" on the Planet!
In this episode, I give my take on the unnecessary wars that started in Europe and how Emotional Intelligence would eradicate the need to have them! Aren't we all tired? Can't we do better? I believe we can! I just fought off Covid, and I was exhausted, and then this conflict with Ukraine amped up. My son doesn't understand why? Also, empathy knows no race, so how did the black Ukrainians get held back? Some gaslight and say this is not the time, but I say it's a perfect time. If we are going to leave a better world for our children, we will do it with the dismantling of systems that persist in harming us. RIGHT NOW!

The result is "The D.I.V.I.N.E. Framework," a six pillar mindset-shifting process she uses with her clients which helps them gain a new, compassionate awareness of who they are today, what they've overcome, and the confidence to manifest their desires without guilt or fear.

Afghanistan Is A Teachable Moment About Accountability
In this episode, I am talking about teaching accountability through what's happening in the world now. Today's example is Afghanistan. Do you feel like the world is crashing? Well, if you are focused on the current news cycle, I wouldn't blame you. Like most kids, mine is getting news from sources in the gaming world, talking to peers, and even school. For example, I was agitated when I heard my son's school discussed George Floyd without the right Emotional Intelligence foundation. Still, real life is inescapable, but how we explain it to our kids can create a generation of more conscious beings, who learn from their mistakes and know how to be ACCOUNTABLE, so they don't keep repeating our mistakes. Isn't that the point? There is always an EQ way to teach and discuss everything.  Learn about my coaching services and more! Please support this podcast!

Anxiety In Children...What To Do?
In this episode, I am talking about the impact of anxiety on the life and heart of you and your children. You will get a lot of value out of this episode! I also want to gently remind parents that the only way we can help children is to be the example of what we want to see in them and accept that even with all the care in the world, your children will be who they are going to be. They are unique and separate from the ideas and boxes we place them in, and the harder you try to make them into some version of perfection or WOKE, they will do what makes them feel like the most authentic version of themselves. So our role is to love them no matter what! It's usually our fears that push them away. So love them, instill self-love, and hope for the best! Learn about my coaching services and more!

Self-Care! What Can You Do To Make You Feel Good About Yourself Today?
In this episode, of EQaboveIQ I am talking about womanhood and why it's vital to prioritize it as mothers and women. That is why we must ask ourselves this question. "What Can You Do To Make You Feel Good About Yourself Today?" We live in a culture that encourages women to take care of anyone but themselves, but how can we genuinely care for others if we are depleted. It also causes us to have mental health issues that become physical health issues.  So I invite you to have a listen! Please share with a woman out there who is doubting their self-worth.

Derek Chauvin trial! How are you coping?
In this episode, I share different coping mechanisms, how they work, and the pros and cons. The death of George Floyd has brought a much-needed highlight on police brutality and why we need to redirect resources towards helping citizens rather than incarcerating them. It's time to dig underneath the history of policing and see the trauma it causes to all involved. I have employed many different coping mechanisms to deal with the trauma of seeing young black men and women murdered, some positive and some negative. So I am breaking them down so you can bring awareness to your style and why?  During these times, it is more important than ever to seek mental health support.

Interview with Michelle Dickinson: How Bipolar Disorder and Mental Illness Affects Our Kids.
In this episode, I am having a vulnerable discussion about mental health and bipolar disorder with Michelle Dickinson who survived a mother who had it. Michelle candidly explains the toll it had on her and how it prompted her to become who she is today. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression is a mental illness that brings on severe hits and low moods and changes in sleep, energy, thinking and behavior. It's a very difficult for children who have parents with this disorder especially when they have other issues such as narcissistic personality disorders that tend to overlap with bipolar. So how can you get the help you need when you truly feel you have a problem? It's the children who end up with the trauma.   Michelle E. Dickinson, is a very passionate mental health advocate, a TED speaker, and a published author of a memoir entitled Breaking Into My Life. She goes first and sees herself as the bridge that helps people get comfortable with their mental health so that they reach out and get the support they need before they hit a crisis. She makes it ok to not be ok and thrives on making a real difference in the lives of others – especially around their wellbeing. Michelle is out to do her part to eliminate the stigma by normalizing the mental health conversation within the workplace and beyond.

But, this book title isn’t just fiction; it is based on his actual story. Tony once led a successful corporate career for over 25 years, but that is less interesting than the side-businesses that he created, which generated millions in profit. As an active entrepreneur himself, he still owns a few businesses. But, his real passion is teaching entrepreneurs how to start, scale, and sell their business, within his podcast and consulting brand 365 Driven.  Tony's Deets!  Instagram Facebook Website  Trina's Deets!
