Christina doesn't just survive, she thrives!  A little bit about this powerhouse: At some point in my childhood there was always one of the following: no heat, no money, no home, no food, but we always managed and the outside was none the wiser. I have survived things most people could never imagine. I am a fearless workaholic and love to learn. I created Monster Mini Golf as I saw a void in affordable family entertainment. My requirements: cost less than the movies, be easily managed, require little to no inventory, had to be different and it had to be fun. Built the first Monster Mini Golf myself making monsters out of everything and anything. Opened in May 2004.  Franchised Monster Mini Golf in 2005. Today we have 30+ Franchised locations across the USA and Canada.  2009 landed us on the front page of the Wall Street Journal with an underdog victory against litigiously aggressive Monster Cable Company.

Repurpose Your Purpose!
Repurpose Your Purpose!
Happy Monday Friends! Who's ready for the holidays? I am so ready to stuff myself silly on Thanksgiving with family! My next guest has got such a beautiful energy about her. Please welcome my PREMIERE guest Aurora Meneghello. A little bit about Aurora: I grew up in a small town in Italy and moved to Los Angeles on my own when I was 19 years old. I spent decades trying to “fix myself” or feeling there was something wrong with a world I did not really fit in. This is how I first discovered coaching as a client; and it might be how you too ended up here. To fix what is wrong with you. I am afraid if you are looking to be “fixed,” you will get no help from me. I could never fix myself because there was nothing to be fixed. Once I awoke to my own Self, to that place inside of me that is already part of everything, my life transformed. This is what I dedicated my life work to: supporting others in awakening to their own innate wellbeing. Once you see yourself as you truly are, the rest flows.

Stronger You Project by Justin Brien
Stronger You Project by Justin Brien
Happy Wednesday friends! I have been migrating computers, getting a new phone set up since last week. It has really thrown me for a loop. I almost have everything back to 100% but still trying to get used to my new computer. My next guest is AWE-inspiring! He is very authentic and vulnerable talking about his battle with addiction. Please welcome Justin Brien! A little bit about Justin: My name is Justin Brien and I am a Mental Health Advocate / Inspirational Speaker and Life Coach working in Salmon Arm BC. For over half of my lifetime, I have been riddled with an endless cycle of addiction stemming from my mental health. I have battled dark nights filled with loneliness and doubt, questioning whether or not I would make it to see my son graduate, ride a bike, or even through the night. It was during this time by my own sheer mental determination and ultimately my will to live and succeed I decided to find my “why” in life. With that thought, I took my last breath in my old negative and recycled ways and looked to a new future through a better understanding of myself. With discipline and a sheer work ethic, I found it was possible to defeat my mental demons at last. Now in my new life with my son, and his mother by my side I am able to show him we are enough, each of us, and that we matter. We are not alone. There is a magic in each and every one of us and through the power of sharing my story, my experience and passing on my knowledge to others in support and understanding of what they are going through I am able to help defeat the stigma around mental health. With my life long experience dealing with these important personal issues, I aim to bring awareness to others who don’t understand and bring hope to those who desperately need it. They matter. You matter.

Weeds Seeds and Beautiful Things
Weeds Seeds and Beautiful Things
TGIF Friends! It is the weekend! We have gotten our first snow of the season today in the Chicagoland area. I have an action packed weekend full of podcast things. I can't wait! My next guest is very open, honest and vulnerable talking about a subject that not many want to talk about. Please welcome my next PREMIERE guest Connie Lawson! A little bit about Connie: My name is Constance Lawson.  I am a wife to my husband Jerry, and we have a beautiful and miraculous blended family.  My call to speak came when I was very young.  As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for speaking.  However, my dream came to an abrupt halt for over twenty years, due to an autoimmune disorder contracted when I was eleven years old.  The resulting devastation has taken much time, pain, and perseverance to overcome.   I know the pain of mental illness, divorce, abuse, infertility, and burying someone you love, as well as the joy of healing and redemption.  In my speaking, I draw on these experiences to help others find within themselves the strength, faith, and ability to overcome whatever is keeping them stuck.   The purpose of my speaking ministry is to help you realize that your worth and value goes deeper than any struggle you have. I’m a huge mental health advocate and I believe the struggles we face are so much more than an irritating inconvenience. I believe they are the backdrop, the platform, the pathway to our greatest good and deepest walk with the Lord. I am a woman of faith.  My love for the Lord is the greatest pursuit of my life, with a close second being my love for my family.  I live by the motto, “Keep moving forward,” because I hate sitting still.  I enjoy doing all kinds of art, bright colors, cooking, and baking, and cold rainy days are my favorite.  Finally, I love people, all different kinds of people. I look forward to speaking at your next event.  I know you won’t be disappointed!

Former 10 Year FBI TERRORISM CI tells his story
Former 10 Year FBI TERRORISM CI tells his story
Happy Humpday Friends!  This past weekend I interviewed a man that had been sentenced to a life in prison under the armed career criminal act, learned Arabic. While in prison overheard a terrorist attack on a federal building in NY. Released on a 30 day pass to help with the case turned to 10yrs working for the FBI & Secret Service. Johnny is now on a mission to release his story to the world and focused on building a youth opportunity center to help kids like him create a better life.  What I love about his story is that he did not let that “label” of being a criminal stop him from becoming a hero for our country against terrorism. I think he is incredibly brave. Please welcome Johnny Culpepper.
