Ordinary Stories, Extraordinary Impact Pt1
Therapist, Splankna practitioner and visionary Erin Garcia invited Kristi Bridges to be the March speaker for Shift88. Thanks to the #COVIDquarantine, we did a live broadcast on Facebook instead of a local breakfast meeting. This means you get to hear it! The thing about live broadcasts is that sometimes #trolls appear. Ironically, the trolls illustrated Kristi's points perfectly, and we all had a good time. In part 1, Erin shares an acronym to help us get un-S.T.U.C.K., and Kristi tells the story of her great-grandpa's idea of a gift. #stories, #originalsongs, #womenspeakers, #empowerment

Lemonade, Key Lime Pie and One Red Shoe - Meet Shelley Malicote-Stutchman
When Shelley Malicote-Stutchman’s life turned sour, she started the Lemonade Ladies, a group of women who conquered depression and published a powerful book of poetry.  When Shelley reached “a certain age,” she refused the recliner and started the Medicare Jet-Setters, a group so fun I want to age faster and join them. In this episode, I was honored as this firecracker shared how you can create community with lemonade, key lime pie and a single shoe. #poet #depression #seniorshavingfun #story Click here to register for the March 14, 2020 #authorshowcase at Tokyo Garden in Bixby, OK.  What's your story? If you can't think of a story to share, you'll love Unguarded, Shelley's journal of 366 questions. Use this journal to leave a legacy for your loved ones or to learn more about yourself.
