Get Your FILL, Financial Independence and Long Life

By Christine Mccarron
One day I woke up and I was 50 years old. I don't know how it happened but it was pretty depressing. Especially since I had virtually no money saved for retirement and no clue what I wanted to be when I grew up.
Now, I'm on a mission to create financial independence, financial FREEdom and - since I'm too old to retire early - a long, happy, healthy life! With the help of fascinating guests who are expert investors, holistic health practitioners, coaches and speakers, we tackle the tough questions like: Why? and How? Join me on this ride for your life!

The Alexander Technique with Katie Beckvold

In addition to being a talented singer and voice coach, Katie is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, a way of moving and interacting with the world.   Watch the video About Katie Beckvold Katherine Beckvold is an Operatic Lyric Coloratura and Musical Theatre Soprano. She is based on the South Shore in Massachusetts where she auditions, gives voice lessons and teaches the Alexander Technique, as a certified member of Alexander Technique International.   The Alexander Technique  Describing the Alexander Technique is always a personal experience unto itself. This is similar to a moment. It is there, defined and seemingly settled. Then, there is a breath, a shift, a change.   When we come into the world we are given the chance to live, breathe and take in the space around us, seemingly without any consequence. We live from moment to moment with a sense of wonder without defining our experience. We live in acceptance and trust.   As we get older, our relationship with the world and more importantly with ourselves changes. Instead of taking the world in with wonder, we define it. We define ourselves in relationship to the world around us in such a way that there is no room for change. There is no room for choice.   What if we had choice?   Connect with Katie:  katiebeckvold.com   https://youtube.com/channel/UCnyqDkgjp5AwN00HqJuvATQ  https://m.facebook.com/keepitsimple.katiebeckvold14/?tsid=0.5405981580945463&source=result

Become an Innate Marketing Genius with Christina Frei
Christina Frei has created her own method of finding your superpower and using the power of Why to create a perfect strategy to market your business. Innate Marketing Genius is a way to be authentic in how you connect with prospects. It teaches you how to trust your instincts and get clear on what’s the best way forward for you. It connects you to your natural inner marketing strategy. Your marketing becomes an extension of who you are, instead of just another chore. This empowering approach changes everything. Barriers disappear, you connect with your prospective clients in a new way, you find powerful focus, you become exactly the marketer you’ve always known you are. That inner awesome has always been there, hasn’t it? Let’s discover it.  Watch the video From Christina:   For a long time, I focused on the strategic side of marketing.  After graduating from Wellesley College, I worked as a media buyer for J. Walter Thompson (Unilever), as an account executive at TBWA/Chiat Day and Fallon McElligott (NBA), as a marketing manager in a Shelton, CT-based semiconductor company, as a business manager at a construction firm.  It was all about doing the right thing and getting results. And that was great. But something was missing. It all felt very flat.   When you contemplate what can happen in human connection, marketing sparkles with possibilities.  It just needs to be real, vulnerable, authentic. And I get the allure of the “right strategy.” When I was a youth speaker obsessed with the Founding Fathers, I made cold calls to PTA parents, posted to Facebook, wrote a book – 5 Rockstars of the American Revolution – and eventually got on the History Channel and the Today Show. All the right things. (Yup, I met Henry Rollins – twice). In 2014, I needed to generate income quickly, and I decided I wanted to do this from the deepest part of myself. I was done following “good strategies.”   Link to Christina’s websites:  https://www.innatemarketinggenius.com/# https://www.onevoiceonestrategy.com/ Link to free gift from Christina - your assessment

Protect Your Wealth with Joelle Ferraiuolo
Joelle Ferraiuolo is a Protector of Wealth and Personal Insurance Concierge! If you have or need property insurance, you will benefit from Joelle's tips and insider info on getting the right policy with the appropriate coverage at the right price. Don't be turned off by the topic, Joelle is anything but ho-hum and her information could save your butt!   Watch the video About Joelle:   ◇ Building relationships and nurturing them is a way of life for me and what I love most about my work. I advocate for my clients and most have become friends along the way. ◇   Property and Casualty insurance is evolving! Many home and business owners are unaware of the complexity that is their policy and who they trust to pay for damages when they have to file a claim. If you are not savvy about the details of your insurance policy contract, your claims adjuster has the upper hand!   So what can you do?   1️⃣ Choose an independent agent rather than a direct insurance company. An agent can advocate for you and does not have loyalty to only one insurance company.   2️⃣ Ask questions! Don't be afraid to ask questions about your insurance. The only one who will be hurt if you don't understand your policy, is YOU.   3️⃣ Think holistically! Insurance is a form of protection and should be cohesive between all exposures of risk. If they do not "talk" to one another, you could have major gaps in coverage.   Being well versed in insurance is not for everyone and most people simply do not have time. That's where I come in!   Insurance is my life, my expertise and my passion. I help people retain their lifestyles even after a catastrophic loss. My clients have worked hard to grow their wealth and successful businesses. My consultative approach to insurance provides the right coverage to protect their legacies.   If you have questions about your current insurance, would like to know what types of risks you face, or simply wish to have an audit of your policy, let's chat. We can have a conversation where you can decide if working together is a good fit.   Here is a link to my personal calendar: https://calendly.com/joelle-insurance/risk-assessment  Please pick a time that works for you.   ☎ 508-471-1181 📱 401-486-2075 💻 jrf@imaagency.com

Faith-Family-Finances-Friendship-Fitness-Fun. My entire life, I have wanted to be a high performing person with the success and accolades that go with it. While I was on this idealistic pursuit, I found out that not only was it harder than I realized but because my life did not look like what I had pictured In my head, I resented what I had as if it was not enough. I felt like a failure in every area of my life. All I could see where my shortcomings instead of the areas that I did have success. I realized I needed to change and that I need help both mentally and emotionally. I wanted to heal in my image and self-worth.

Vivian has created her own Millionaire Mindset Program helping both young and old to learn about money, how it works and how to make it work for you. About Vivian London-Crooks: Before what we know today as the “me too” movement, Vivian had experienced years of discriminating attacks, gender bias, unethical badgering and consistent questioning of her skill set all because of being a hardworking, intelligent black woman. As a woman of God, Vivian decided enough was enough and started to work on a plan that would allow her to be ahead of the attack on her career. Piece by piece, she strategized what would be her own business. As a result, London’s Tax Services, LLC was created. From that day, Vivian promised herself that no one would ever be able to have control over her livelihood again. Understanding that knowledge is power, she set out on a mission to share what over twenty years of experience has taught her. Today Vivian is living her entrepreneurial dream. She has developed a financial literacy program that plants new seeds of knowledge in young minds and enriches the financial lifestyle of the more mature minds. The course is a wealth of information that is desperately needed in today’s economy.

Millionaire Mindset with Negotiation Expert, Christine McKay
As part of the #MillionaireMindset series on #GetYourFILLPodcast, #ChristineMcKay of #VennNegotiation talks about the importance of good negotiating skills in life and in business and the most important negotiation of all that takes place in our heads! Watch the complete, unedited video here. Global Business Negotiation Strategist, Christine McKay, author of "From Street Smarts to Suite Smarts", has 26 years of experience negotiating with dozens of the Fortune 500. She is passionate about finding common ground, leveling the playing field, and resolving complex issues on behalf of her clients. Christine empowers you to ask for what you want and provides the skills and tools needed to negotiate for it. Transcript:  You have stumbled on to another episode of Get Your FILL, Financial Independence and Long Life, where we strive for ways to achieve those two goals and we invite friends on to help us. So today we're very lucky to be joined by Christine McKay. Christine is a seasoned executive. She's a Harvard MBA, which of course is important to me being a Bostonian, seasoned executive and negotiator. She is an international business professional. She has done business in 53 countries, maybe even more by now an international speaker, an author, and a former adjunct professor. Christine, thank you so much for being here today. You are a part four of our millionaire mastermind series. Oh thank you, Christine, I'm so excited and I love your name, obviously; That could not go without saying. It's such an honor to be here. I love this topic. This is just really exciting, and I'm really excited for you and what you're doing. And I think you are just blazing trails, it's awesome. Thank you so much. That was nice of you to say. So you're a negotiator and I can think of a lot of reasons why a negotiator would be part of a millionaire mastermind series, but I think for us, for you its even more, right? I mean, why, why do you feel that you're a good choice for the millionaire mastermind series? Well, I mean, negotiation is something that is, it's something that we do every single day and I've been doing it. I've been doing it professionally now for almost 30 years. And I'm always struck by how afraid people are to negotiate. How the emotions that come out when the topic of negotiation is raised. I was recently talking to somebody and he got really like freaked out. I mean, he clenched his fists closed off his body. And it was like, how can you talk about this topic? Its so combative. But the thing is that negotiation is about relationships. And I mean, I'm very fortunate. I've been married to the man of my dreams for 27 years and, and the deal that we entered into when we first got married, is not entirely the same deal that we have today. We've changed, we've grown, our kids are grown and out on their own. And, and so things change, but in our, in our professional world, we often don't give ourselves latitude to change. So there are kind of a number of different aspects of negotiation, but the hardest part of every negotiation is a negotiation that happens between our ears. And so when you talk about a millionaire mindset, right, the way that that negotiation that we can have in our own head is so critical to setting us up for what we're going to achieve over the long term. And if we don't believe it, we're not going to be able to achieve it. I hear Napoleon Hill's voice there. View the full transcript.

Fear is Nothing to Be Afraid Of! Barry Moniak
Barry Moniak, business consultant, trainer, speaker, and PSIA certified ski instructor, shares his method of Fearless Leadership. Fear is nothing to be afraid of! It's a tool with incredible value and power.  Watch the video About Barry Barry Moniak gets leaders to deal with tough challenges, the same way expert skiers approach formidable ski slopes. A core trait which sets fearless leaders apart is a developed inclination to befriend fear, transforming it into a more beneficial kind of energy. They then infuse this atypical approach to fear into those who look to them for leadership, thereby developing fearless teams. We do not typically think of the workplace as the ideal space for this transformation to take place – but it is. The job site is the ideal arena in which to become enlightened and fearless; not the mountain top, seaside, church or synagogue; not even the latest greatest get motivated seminar. Business provides a tough, no-nonsense, yet highly creative space in which we discover who we really are and evolve into fearless leaders of fearless teams. What makes Barry a fear expert? Born empathic back in a time when this condition wasn’t well known or talked about. No one bothered to explain to Barry that being empathic involved a lot more than having empathy. It meant literally picking up on other peoples’ thoughts, desires, fears; and since he had no understanding of where this extrasensory input was coming from, he often thought of himself as crazy. Add to that being raised Jewish in an anti-Semitic community, caused him to grow up in a state of societal judgement, rejection and fear. As a young adult, in his first attempt at snow skiing, he became so frozen with fear atop a black diamond run that he was taken off the mountain in a ski patrol rescue sled. Barry soon discovered that everyone experiences fear, yet we each experience it in our own way. The typical reaction to fear, he found, is to in some way disavow its existence. He began to research what causes fear and its effect on us mentally, physically and emotionally. His curiosity was peaked as to why it’s so socially unacceptable to talk about our fears – especially in relationships or at work – even though doing so is so critically relevant to becoming fearless. Decades of personal growth and development work followed, including studies in physics, psychology, philosophy, the neurological sciences, fitness, and training certifications in martial arts, esoterics and skiing. In the course of his rich and modestly varied business background he built, maintained, and sold innovative enterprises: general construction; custom remodeling; asbestos abatement; business valuation & sales; high end restaurant service & training. Thirty years ago, Barry founded a consulting practice focused on developing more functional personal, interpersonal and organizational relationships with fear. Barry’s presented various topics dealing with fear over the last fifteen years. His empathic, intuitional nature adds flavor and depth of understanding to his approach. Though entertaining and interactive, his on-stage presentations speak to real issues. Barry’s also a PSIA certified ski instructor, about to start his 22nd season, helping skiers have a safe and more enjoyable experience in a sport riddled with fear. He uses ‘on mountain’ ski stories as analogies for ‘off mountain’ endeavors. Barry believes that in order to succeed in business, and in life, we must treat people and organizations as integrated beings – living entities. He assesses areas where individuals and teams experience fear and empowers them to embrace and face the fear. Check out the episode page with links to resources that Barry mentions.

Meaningful Money and Living Your Life On-Purpose with Kevin McCarthy
Kevin McCarthy, innovative advisor on matters of purpose, people, performance, and profitability to increase wealth for the common good, discusses how to attract Meaningful Money and live your live #On-Purpose.  Watch the video About Kevin Kevin W. McCarthy is a classically educated businessman with an undergraduate degree in business and economics from Lehigh University and an MBA from The Darden School on the grounds of the University of Virginia. He’s the Chief Leadership Officer of On-Purpose Partners, a business strategy advisory firm serving CEOs and CLOs that is based in Winter Park, FL. He founded the firm in 1983. Those are the raw facts about Kevin. Now let’s meet the real Kevin—the person, the entrepreneur, and the business owner for over five decades. His first sweet taste of a business start-up was in elementary school selling penny candy at a 500% markup to his classmates on the school bus. Not only did he feed his sweet tooth, it enriched his dentist’s business at his parents’ expense. Years later … as a “much older and wiser” 8th-grade class president at Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, Kevin successfully negotiated for his class to obtain the first ever Coca-Cola fountain concession in the Middle School lunch room. Kevin says, “That venture funded our class parties through senior high. Being elected class president every year thereafter, in my senior yearbook the editors nicknamed me “The Resident President.” Fast forward past the earlier adult years when Kevin was a USPTA teaching tennis professional, a greeting card publisher, and a commercial real estate developer. Since the late 1980s, Kevin has likely directly or indirectly influenced your life and work through his visionary thinking and writing in the field of business leadership. At that time, he began a conversation about purpose and being on-purpose. Even today, his On-Purpose® Approach is the gold standard in this field and still remains on the leading edge of personal development and business leadership thinking. If you talk about knowing your purpose or starting your business with your why, then you can thank Kevin’s bestselling book series The On-Purpose Person (1992, 2009) and The On-Purpose Business Person (1998, 2013). Do you use stories to communicate your business story? In 2002, Kevin launched Strategic Story Studios with a new business partner who previously ran Disney’s Yellow Shoes internal marketing agency. Thanks to their seminars and consulting, business leaders learned to leverage the power of strategic stories to better reach their team members and customers. The company motto was, “Facts inform. Stories transform.™” What’s next for this innovator? Chief Leadership Officer is Kevin’s newest book. Yet again, Kevin is peering into the future with clear thinking and methods. The premise is simple: CEOs are increasingly obsolete and will be replaced in the coming years by CLOs. Let the business reformation begin!

Transform your Life, Career and Business with Katy Goshtasbi
Personal branding expert, former securities lawyer and entrepreneur, Katy Goshtasbi, of Puris Consulting shares her branding wisdom and communication secrets. Watch the video About Katy:  I was born in Iran and, like so many others, we fled the country during the Revolution, fearing religious persecution. I still remember it vividly: I was 6 years old and confused. My mom, grandmother, and I packed two suitcases and planned to leave for two weeks, until the unrest died down. That was in 1979. We never went back to Iran. We moved to Indiana to stay with my maternal uncles. Growing up there was great, and the people were very kind to us overall. Of course, there were still situations where I was bullied because I didn’t look like the other kids. Being the outsider and “different” was hard and painful. I was always in a state of change trying to fit in as an immigrant. I’m a transformation expert. I bring out growth and what’s possible in people and organizations. My job is to be your guide in the transformation journey so you can find your natural talent and be fulfilled. Working with me opens your vision to see other possibilities. Change is always hard, however, you have a choice about how you look at change and transformation. You can choose to see transformation as hard or you can choose to see it differently. You have all the power, and that’s exciting! I see greatness and specialness in everyone. Everyone is equally important. We all have a natural talent and we can choose to own our natural talents, find our purpose, and create our vision if we choose to see differently.

Joe Yoder of Tiny Solar Vermont on Setting Up Your Personal Solar Energy Station Part 2
Joe Yoder of #TinySolarVermont helps us prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse and any other impending disasters by going off-the-grid with our own personal solar system for less than you ever imagined. This is Part 2 of our conversation. Listen to Part 1. Since 2014 Tiny Solar Vermont's  Mission:  To design and sell very small, very affordable solar electric systems and related materials Watch the Video About Joe: In 2011, after Tropical Storm Irene left many Vermonters scrambling for generators (or worse yet, their car engines!), I moved forward with my Idea to create a company that would sell very small, very affordable solar electric systems and related materials. We officially launched in 2014. Typically we’ve sold TSV systems to people with tiny houses, yurts, camps, or simply a need for reliable back-up power. We encourage and support DIY solar power. Yes, It can be safe and reliable, and cheap! I built my first DIY system, with some assistance, in Danville VT in 1990, and have dabbled in it ever since. In 2009/2010 I completed three courses in Photovoltaic Design & Installation at altE University in Hudson Mass. I then passed the NABCEP Photovoltaic Entry Level Exam. In our current house in Montpelier, VT, we’ve had DIY battery-based solar since 2006. We find that it makes a great back-up for the grid, and vice versa. When the grid gets knocked out, we still have power! (And so do our chickens; they have their own TinySolar System).

Eric Keyes on Music, Food and Caring for Aging Parents
#erickeyes, musician, chef and renaissance man talks about #caringforagingparents Eric’s style of music can be described as rock with a soulful, authentic, genuine feel that is singable, danceable, and connects with listeners on an emotional basis. Remember a time when you were with good friends listening to authentic music, eating some really amazing food, food that was tasty not trendy? Eric expresses his appreciation for these moments in life through his music. He surrounds himself with an amazing band that hits you on an emotional level, that inspires you to sing along, and your body to move with the music. Music and great food heals people. Eric’s standard of performing is that his audiences find his shows high energy, visually stunning, and leave them wanting to come back for more. Art imitates life and Eric started as an artist, found his confidence as a guitarist, and sings with a creative, soulful, authentic, voice. Eric Keyes is in the entertainment business, but this title in no way encompasses all that he does. A connoisseur of life Eric is a master of all that brings true joy in this world. He focuses all his efforts on music, cooking, and good times with friends. He brings the same fortitude towards his own personal growth and spiritual evolution. He brings his excellent business skills to his personal endeavors, and like a powerful lion, grabs life by the throat in each and every new adventure he embarks upon. His motivation is to connect to others on an emotional level through his work, relating to their pain, so that he might make a positive impact offering his experience and artistic expression. Always striving to broaden his horizons and take on new challenges his interests are unlimited as is often the case for the truly gifted creative artist. 80% of his time is spent on music and the entertainment business, but his other areas of interest include cooking, health, psychology, personal development, and martial arts to name a few. A truly versatile and unique entrepreneur, Eric Keyes takes the world by storm!
