Answer Your Call with Shaun Banks
Stepping into your life purpose, into everything you were created for can be scary.  I know I’ve shied away from my gifts and calling, but as a result was left living small.  Have you heard the small voice within nudging you toward your purpose?  Have you seen the signs? But are too scared to say, “Yes!”  This is what Shaun Banks experienced when faced with his life’s calling. Takeaways: In stepping into your purpose and avoiding getting overwhelmed, just focus on the next step. Sometimes we have to borrow the belief of others in us before we can believe in ourselves. The parent's voice becomes their children's voice as they go out in life. We always think about our ideas not working, but what if it does? Look at what other people are doing right and duplicate that. Taking small steps, whether quickly or slowly, doesn't matter. What matters is just continuing to do it. Shaun SF. Banks has been involved in the youth development industry for over 20 years. he's a captivating, humorous, and passionate communicator. Shaun excels at motivating and developing youths to go after their dreams. Shaun educates families on effective ways to support their youth and give them an edge in life.

Shaun is the creator of Camp Warrior King, which helps thousands of youth gain exposure to amazingly fun activities, "You Can Have IT ALL!" Youth conferences, "You Can Have It ALL!"

Freedom from Fear with Jacqueline Wales
Fear. It's something each one of us knows intimately. Some fears can be insignificant like fear of spiders but some can be more significant and impactful on our quality of life, like fear of failure.  But regardless of degree of fear, all fears hold us hostage. So any assistance in helping free us from fear is greatly appreciated. Here to talk with us about how to thrive in the face of great is Jacqueline Wales. Takeaways: We all know how to be our own worst enemy, but how about learning to be our own best friend & thinking about how we speak to ourselves? Fear is imagination-based. How we deal with our fears is based on the stories that we tell ourselves. Success is a continuous process of iteration. My past may be something, but I get to choose who I want to be in the world. - Carl Jung Just keep doing it until one day you look back and say "It doesn't bother me anymore." An astute observer of behavior Jacqueline Wales is endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human and finds people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles incredibly interesting and courageous. As the author of When The Crow Sings, The Fearless Factor, The Fearless Factor @ Work, and soon to be published Fearless Women Leading The Way, she has explored human behavior and asked tough questions to discover hard truths for more than 35 years. While observing and talking with thousands of people over several decades, I’ve come to understand that the challenges we all confront are not much different—no matter who you are or what you’re doing in life. Jacqueline is an author, singer, and global nomad who has lived and traveled on three continents, earned a black belt in karate, and now enjoys Crossfit workouts in her garage!

Bye Bye Teen Suicide with Jackie Simmons
The most horrible experience one could live through is someone close to them committing suicide.  With suicide rates up, the media and society are normalizing suicide as an acceptable exit.  In this episode, we’ll be talking with Jackie Simmons who wants to normalize the conversation that intervenes on suicidal thoughts. Takeaways: Every action begins with a thought. Stopping suicide means we must prevent the cause; which is thinking that it is the best option to take. The battles are won and lost in the subconscious mind. Your subconscious is designed to bring about what you think about. You have to be an advocate for yourself, and even when you aren't yet, know that someone out there will stand for you and with you. TEDx speaker, Radio Show Host, International Best-selling Author, Resilience Master, and co-founder of the Teen Suicide Prevention Society, Jackie Simmons is best known for her mission to “Stop Teen Suicide.” In 1995, blindsided by her 14-year-old daughter’s suicide attempt, Jackie entered a world of depression, addictions, medical mysteries, and deadly silences. The journey into the world of mental health services and cultural taboos left Jackie feeling lost and alone. “OK” on the outside, with “really, I’m fine,” her most frequent response to inquiries about how she was doing.  Jackie hid her deep, psychic wounds from the world behind a façade of frantic entrepreneurial activity. Then on August 3, 2019, Jackie’s now 37-year-old daughter, broke the silence. Jackie wasn’t ready. She calls August 3, 2019 the day her “purpose tapped her on the shoulder.” Learn more about Jackie Simmons at http://JackieSimmons.com Donations Accepted at https://successjourneyacademy.thrivecart.com/tsps-donations/ https://www.facebook.com/SuccessJourneyAcademy https://www.linkedin.com/in/mindsetisagame/ https://www.facebook.com/gypsyjackie https://www.facebook.com/groups/yourbrainonpositive https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheSuicidePreventionMovement https://twitter.com/MakeItAGreat https://www.instagram.com/jackiesja/

Finding your True Self through Centering Prayer with Rich Lewis
For many of us, we’re so busy working on things outside of ourselves, our families, our jobs, our friends, our churches, etc.  And all of that is good, but are we so busy that we become distracted from who we are and what we have been created to be?  In this episode, we’ll be learning about an interesting concept and practice called Centering Prayer.  Rich Lewis will guide us on our learning of Centering Prayer and how it can reveal our true selves. Takeaways: As we sit with God, we become more in tune with who He is and the image of which we were created for. We learn to let go and focus on the moment through centering prayer. It has a way of giving you back time. Being intentional in sitting with God and continuously coming back to him refreshes and restarts you from the busyness and distractions of everyday life. Rich Lewis is an author, speaker and coach who focuses on centering prayer as a means of inner transformation. He teaches centering prayer in both his local and virtual community and offers one-on-one coaching. Rich’s newest book is titled, Sitting with God: A Journey To Your True Self Through Centering Prayer. He publishes a weekly meditation, book reviews, and interviews on his site, Silence Teaches. He has published articles for a number of organizations, including Contemplative Light, Abbey of the Arts, Contemplative Outreach, EerdWord, In Search of a New Eden, the Ordinary Mystic at Patheos, and the Contemplative Writer. ​ Rich has been a daily practitioner of centering prayer since June 1, 2014. Centering prayer has been so life-giving and life-changing that he feels compelled to share his journey with others who wish to learn more. Rich resides with his family in Ambler, Pennsylvania.

It’s Not Your Fault with Elena Perella
Why do we do what we do?  We know certain behaviors and habits are bad for us, like smoking, over-eating or even picking fights. And yet we continue to engage in this behavior. Where do these bad behaviors originate from and how can we free ourselves from our habitual programming? Takeaways: We have the power inside ourselves to make healthy choices. Becoming aware of the unhealthy habits you inherited is the first and the most important step. Remember to not rush through the process, healing takes time. Exploring parental relationships may provide insight into the reason you keep repeating unhealthy habits or have trouble changing toxic traits. Do not forget to encourage yourself and practice self-love. Letting go of your anger and resentment is key in order to fully heal. Elena Perella, a Mental Focus and Emotional Mastery Expert who experienced a personal transformation, coaching herself through a severe depression, eating disorders, and domestic violence as a result of a generational legacy of unresolved childhood issues and conflicts that was passed onto her by her family and reinforced by societal toxic conditionings.   She now helps her clients eliminate unhealthy habits, such as overeating, procrastinating, smoking, overworking, and many more, so that they can become emotionally strong and independent, live their lives with passion and purpose, and help their children do the same.

Business Excellence with Rael Bricker
Excellence. It is something we all strive for in life and business. But what does excellence look like and how do we achieve it? Rael Bricker, serial entrepreneur works with leaders and managers on growing and achieving excellence, as he has experienced the roller coaster and knows how to navigate the twists, turns and loops. From being 6000ft underground, to starting an education business (that grew to have 4000 plus students) to spending years working in venture capital, Rael has seen it all. He's listed companies on two international stock exchanges, and his financial services group has settled more than $3bn in loans in 18 years. Rael has a diverse work history combined with his unique global research interviews with companies in more than 25 countries.  With over 30 years as a serial entrepreneur, Rael Bricker helps businesses succeed by delivering a series of dynamic talks on building businesses by thinking outside the box. Rael has been presenting for many years on business, culture, finance, investing, diversity and ethics.  The learning is best practice combined with practical experience to achieve business excellence. Rael Bricker holds two Masters degrees, an MBA and MSc (Software Engineering) and an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering (BSc (Eng) . Rael is currently a Fellow of the MFAA. (Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia), a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) of PSA (Professional Speakers Australia) and a Member of AICD (Australian Institute of Company Directors).

Takeaways: Excellence is showing up as not the perfect version of yourself, but the best version of yourself. And it's not in comparison to anyone else, but you comparing yourself to yourself. Imposter syndrome, not feeling good enough prevents people from showing up as the best version of themselves because they're trying to measure themself against someone else. What makes excellence are those tiny little incremental changes, not big flashy Hollywood moments. When you come from a place of abundance and supply, then every other question is easily answered.

Choosing Love in the Midst of Hate with Wajid Hassan
There’s a lot happening in our world.  Political unrest.  Division. Violence.  Illness. Natural disasters.  It sometimes feels all too much. So how can we stay centered in love when all we are being bombarded with is hate.  With us in this episode is Wajid Hassan to help us talk through what is happening and how we can choose love. From Pakistan to England and then settling in America, Wajid has lived an interesting and varied life in many fields of endeavor. From a technical background as a Field Service Engineer, to stand up comedian with over twenty years as a union actor doing voice over, narration, commercials as well as TV and movie roles. He also encompasses over forty years experience in the field of metaphysics, healing, spirituality and new age concepts. As a qualified Speaker, Healer and Teacher he can demonstrate how to reignite the spiritual flame within us and send it outwards to all, improving not only our own personal lives but those of every lifestream that live on our beautiful world, which is something he outlines in detail in his #1 bestseller on Amazon, “The Struggle for World Sanity”. Takeaways: We are spiritual beings in physical bodies. We must neutralize the negative thoughts on our minds by drawing down the divine energy and grounding it into us through a meditative state. Channeling this energy will raise our own vibrations and the vibrations around us. The new religion of the world right now is service to others. There's three balanced ways of being of service: financially, physically and the mental transformation and spiritual energy transfer. The same amount of spiritual energy you give out, comes back to you. There's only one sin on this planet and that is ignorance; ignorance of the divine law.

Planning Your Exit at the Beginning of Your Business with Marvin Storm
In this episode, we’ll be talking about your exit strategy for your business.  But what if you’re just at the beginning stages of building your business?  This is the time to start implementing your exit strategy.  To help us look at this topic more closely, we’ll be talking with Marvin Storm. Marvin founded, acquired, scaled, and exited businesses during his career. After exiting his last business, he planned to enjoy life, but after a brief stint in the slow lane he realized that sitting on the sidelines wasn’t his style. After considering his options, he felt that leveraging his decades of startup, operational, and C-suite experience could help entrepreneurs launch, scale their business, create enterprise value, and then execute a successful and profitable business exit. With this idea in mind, he launched the Business Exit Stories Podcast where he interviews M&A Advisors, Investment Bankers, Business Brokers, Wealth Managers, and other transaction professionals inviting them to share war stories of their good, bad, and ugly deals for the benefit of entrepreneurs who may be in the early stages of thinking about and positioning their business for an eventual exit. He has developed strategies entrepreneurs can use to substantially increase their business enterprise value and profitably exit their business. The Takeaways: Adopt a forward, future-thinking mindset so as you make decisions in your business, you’re making those decisions with the end in mind. Mindset will drive decisions. Decisions will drive the type of people you hire. The type of people you hire will drive the culture. The culture will drive satisfied customers, satisfied customers will drive business growth. Business growth will drive profitability. Profitability will drive valuation of what your company is eventually going to be worth. There are tangible and intangible assets within your company.  The tangible assets include the material goods, like computers, software, email list.  The intangible assets are the culture, goodwill, systems and processes. You can start with your personal brand, but as you start to build, start moving toward a company brand that doesn’t have to be associated with you.

The Art of Kindness with Donna Cameron
What happens when you publicly commit to one year of kindness?  In this episode, we’ll be chatting with Donna Cameron who did just this. She’ll share her findings and how we can practically implement kindness into our world today. Donna Cameron spent her career working with nonprofit organizations and causes—as an executive, consultant, trainer, and volunteer. It was there that she saw kindness in action and was awed by its power to transform. While she considered herself a reasonably nice person (with occasional lapses into bitchiness), she knew that true kindness was a step above. When she committed to a year of living kindly, she learned that it takes practice, patience, and understanding . . . and a sense of humor helps, too. Her experience is captured in her book, A Year of Living Kindly.  It is now in its 7th printing and available as an audiobook. There are several foreign language editions forthcoming, and the book has been recognized with more than a dozen literary awards. The Takeaways: Kindness is contagious.  If we experience it, even if we only witness somebody being kind to somebody else, we're more inclined to be kind in our next encounters. There’s a distinction between being nice and being kind. Nice is safe and it's doing the expected or polite thing. You can be nice to someone and still make judgments about them. Being kind is the intention to suspend judgment of others, to do more than tolerate, and to accept them as they are. Being kind requires intention. It's going a little bit beyond to help another person,  encourage them or make them feel better. A lot of it is perception. Extending and receiving kindness is a connector and requires courage. Kindness requires active participation from both the giver and receiver.

Healing Within with James Mannion and Harry Thomas of Lads Talk Health
Healing can take place at many different levels.  What if we could reveal one framework for self-healing at all levels?  James Mannion and Harry Thomas have come together to combine their experience to help people heal themselves at the physical, emotional and soulful levels. Each of them have their unique journeys that have contributed to their perspectives and experiences, leading them to a passion of helping people as Life Coaches and as podcasters doing a podcast called Lads Talk Health where they work with people who have terminal illnesses, relationships, parenting, child development and their spiritual journeys. Here are the takeaways: Universally, people regret not speaking their truth. People are afraid of speaking their truth because they judge themselves from the ego and they’re afraid of being judged by others. When you start observing that fear, you become present and then can deal with it. You are enough. Start expressing yourself from that base of knowledge. Everything is energy.  It gets expressed in our emotions which create our experiences of this world. We have two responsibilities from a cellular level, to grow and protect. The framework has 4 steps: 1. Accept that you have an ego. 2. You also have a soul, which is your truth. This means that you have a choice. 3. Take control of your thoughts and follow your gut which often leads you to the truth. Come into and express your truth now. 4. Identify your roles, check where you are and identify how you can be your best self.

The Dance of Delegation with Oxana Romanyuk
A key to scaling your business successfully is delegation.  Expanding our team is a natural evolution of expanding our businesses.  But it may not always feel natural.  What’s involved? How do I know when it’s the right time to start building a team? Who should my first hire be? How do I hire the right people that will last? We’ll be addressing all your questions in this episode as we talk to Oxana Romanyuk about how she teaches the Dance of Delegation. Oxana Romanyuk is founder and CEO of Remote Rockstars that offers high-end online business management and professional virtual assistant services to visionary entrepreneurs, industry experts, and coaches. She works with her home-grown team of rockstar account managers and virtual assistants, helping entrepreneurs systematize and grow their businesses. Oxana is a certified Online Business Manager and a proud member of the International Association of Online Business Managers and Association of Virtual Assistants. She’s trained countless virtual assistants and has helped multiple entrepreneurs grow their businesses, reach more people, and impact the world. Here are the takeaways: When expanding your professional team,  let them know about your agreements, expectations about the way you would want your clients serviced. Compatible personalities are not necessary, but nice to have on a team to help ensure alignment of goals. Personality tests can be used to check compatibility. You can implement a trial period of two to three weeks to test if your potential hire is a good emotional and psychological match. Be clear about your vision, where you want your business to go, your branding, and your messaging so that your potential hire will be very clear. Expanding your team allows you to show up in your zone of genius and lets others perform the tasks that drain you. When looking for a potential hire, look at all of their skills.  There may be multiple tasks that they are able to do.

The Power of Pinterest with Kristine Schwartz
How many of you use Pinterest?  I know I do… to look up the latest in home decor trends or to be inspired by how to trim my upcoming Christmas tree.  But did you know that it can also be used to build your business?  It’s an overlooked platform as many of us are accustomed to Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram to build our audience, but Pinterest is powerful in a different way.

She activates female, impact-driven brands to confidently build their strategic roadmaps and marketing plans in ways that are uniquely aligned to their greater purpose.

How to Have it All with Purdeep Sangha
Love, success, money, family. Fulfillment...how do we have it all?  Is it even possible?  Purdeep Sangha believes you can and in this episode, we’ll show you how. Purdeep is an entrepreneur and internationally acclaimed personal coach & advisor to businessmen. He’s strongly focused on the development of men in business and personal leadership roles. A very unique approach for how to balance a life between business and personal goals as a family man. He’s one of a few select groups of people who have expertise in business, neuroscience, high-performance psychology, masculinity, men in relationships and spirituality.  Purdeep has also just launched his new book, The Complete Man. Having it all is subjective. It is the feeling of living a fulfilled life.   It is something we all strive for and a small number of us achieve.  Perhaps it’s because we’re looking at our lives from the perspective of the victim.  Rather than life happening to us, it is possible to be at the cause and creator of our life. With patience and self-awareness, we can take the time to ask ourselves how we want to feel, what quality of life we want to have, how we want to spend our time. Fulfillment can be defined as “satisfaction or happiness as a result of fully developing one's abilities or character.”  Purdeep and his book, The Complete Man, can be a guide to developing our character and truly living a fulfilled and victorious life. Here are the takeaways: Being complete is not about having it all externally, it’s about being fulfilled inside. According to neuroscience, men’s brains switch quicker from the feelings to solving the reason why they are feeling what they're feeling so they can fix it.. There has to be a safe environment for men to show their emotions. To be constructive with the expression of emotions, men need to have an understanding of their emotions and emotions are a form of energy. Managing your emotions comes from mindfulness and practice. Mindfulness requires you to slow down to understand your emotions and identify the emotions you want to experience. Pulling out emotions and criticism makes men put up their defense systems. Men do want to feel their emotions and have intimacy. Being patient and non-critical is essential to creating that safe space for them. Slow down.

Improving Your Relationship with Money with Paje Rey
I think something we all strive for is financial freedom...I know I do.  We imagine what that would look like, feel like. But it seems so far away. What if I told you that it could be closer than you think? In this episode, we'll be talking with Paje Rey who is on a mission to shift the culture one home at a time by ending unnecessary pain and baggage related to money, helping families live free from fear and stress caused by money. She is inspired to lead others to make a relevant impact in the new economy so that they can contribute to the future generation while giving themselves the chance to experience and turn their own dreams into reality. Money Mantras: I am being blessed to bless others. Every profit has a purpose. Here are the takeaways: Define financial freedom for yourself.  Is it being able to travel in a jet plane whenever you want or is it living in a tiny home in the woods?  However financial freedom looks to you, it’s a knowing that your basic living needs are taken care of. There’s a distinction between joyous and toxic money.  The emotion you put out there when you pay your bills is what you will attract when others pay you.  So pay your bills or give away your money with joy.  Pay attention to your emotions around money always. Check you circle of influence.  See if you can enroll your family and friends into the healthy wholly money flow and support your goals of being financially free. Be continuously learning and shifting your perspectives so that you can improve your relationship with money. As you are paying your debt, also allot time to enjoy yourself. There are several ways you can earn a passive income: affiliate marketing, authoring and selling books on kindle, investments, etc. Learn more about Paje Rey at https://agency.inspiredxaction.com/pajerey https://www.youtube.com/pajerey https://www.instagram.com/pajerey/ https://www.facebook.com/MissPajeRey/

Mindset to Expand Yourself and Your Business with Angel Ribo
What does it take to leave the safety of your 9-5 job to pursue an entrepreneurial calling?  In this episode we’ll learn from someone who took the leap and now helps others do the same, and even helps them expand from local to global. Angel RIBO, known as The CEO Confidant, is a Business Influencer, LinkedIn strategist, International TV Host, Public Speaker, CEO Consultant, Board Member, and Philanthropist. In the last 21 years, Angel has helped more than 1,500 CEOs in 33 different countries to accelerate the growth of their businesses.

There’s room in the market for everyone as different people will resonate with different voices. “Take imperfect action now.” When you have an idea, just jump. See what works for you. Listen. And course correct. Transparency creates trust. Collaboration, meaning creating something together, should be a pillar of business. Finding a common denominator everyone can get excited about is key to collaboration. Collaboration opens up our creative powers and allows businesses to serve their clients in a much bigger and better way. The scarcity mindset blocks collaborative possibilities.

Practice Play with Mike Montague
"Go out and play” is something we often tell our kids.  We know that it’s important for kids to play on the daily, but why is it not important for us, as adults?  When does play stop being important? That’s the topic for this episode.  I’ll be chatting with Mike Montague who advocates for adults to go play. Mike Montague is a game show host, public speaker, podcaster, and writer. He has been a radio DJ, karaoke host, virtual game show host, MC, and DJ for live events including opening for Billy Idol, Frankie Valli, and MC-ed at Toby Keith's Bar & Grill. He is also the founder of Playful Humans, a community designed to help the burned-out and bored get re-energized and engaged with life. His mission is to help adults rediscover the power of play and avoid a midlife crisis. Here are the takeaways: Working hard, self-doubt and fear of others’ judgements limit our ability to be creative, use our imagination and be playful. Being happy requires us to participate in voluntarily, be present in the moment and be in the sweet spot between being challenged and making progress. There is no right answer to what makes us happy.  But you can begin with recognizing the small victories to discover what is fun to you and ignites joy in you in the short term.. Being in play is available to everyone right now. Happiness is abundant.  You and I can be happy at the same time. Make life a fun game. Seek out playful fun.

Wisdom from COVID with Maria Tan
It seems everywhere we look, the primary topic of conversation is about COVID-19.  There’s no denying that COVID has affected so many aspects of our lives, including our businesses.  In this episode, we’ll be talking with a Coach and Consultant whose life and business was affected directly by the virus. We’ll hear about her COVID journey. Known as THE Business Coach for Misfits, Maria Tan (Maria Kathlyn Tan) empowers non-conformists across the globe to embrace the magic of running their own business, and create success tailored to their lifestyles. Before coaching online, she was a cross-cultural business and communications consultant who worked with executives from all over the world and coached over 1000 professionals. She’s seen in Forbes, Entrepreneur, HuffPost, Elephant Journal, Pick the Brain, and Addicted2Success and was the only Asian woman featured in The Money Code and How to Crack It, a book that debuted at #14 on Amazon US. Maria’s 1000+ clients range from side-hustlers to new entrepreneurs to American Ivy-league graduates to diplomats. Whether you’re just starting to consider becoming your own boss, or looking to scale an established business, it’s important to focus (and re-focus) on the crucial components that set you up for success. To find out how to ensure a solid foundation, get the free e-book Your Business Magic Checklist here - https://maria-tan.mykajabi.com/businessmagicchecklist Here are the takeaways: Be mindful of your energy and capacity to work. Be transparent with your clients and followers If you know where you’re headed, there’s no point rushing into anything. Have the courage and integrity to not just talk big, but show up big. Don’t give a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Engage with your experience. That’s how we heal, thrive, become and evolve. Sometimes we need to write from the scars, not the wounds.  Sharing the shifts can reveal that what we used to believe may have been limited or need to be redefined. We can normalize transparency and humanity through our businesses by showing our imperfections and vulnerability. The market wants to feel connected and understood. We can serve and connect in a deeper way with our market by being transparent with our stories, pains, and motivations to persevere that we, ourselves have processed and are at peace with. Being a misfit can be an asset, not a liability. To be successful in business, it is important to see beyond the money to your vision.  Operating from your vision and ensuring your business has all the necessary elements can ensure your success.

The Conspiracy of Goodness with Liesl Ulrich-Verderber
In a world where the polarity of opposites, good-bad, light-dark, positive-negative are even more apparent, we need some good news.  In fact, our lives depend on our ability to recognize the good, light and positive. In the news and social media, we hear the word “conspiracy” tossed around in a negative connotation.  Many feel there’s a conspiracy of evil, but what if there also was a conspiracy of goodness?  This is what Liesl Ulrich-Verderber is doing..she's helping reveal the Conspiracy of Goodness. Here are the takeaways: The Conspiracy of Goodness is a movement to unite those that are doing good in the world so that we can be intentional about recognizing the good in the world. Staying up to date on the current events is important, but limit how much news you intake and make sure you balance the negative news with the good. We are wired to pay attention to the negative.  Our brains over time have evolved to be on the lookout for danger as part of our fight or flight response.  Additionally, as we watch the news on a regular basis, our brain begins to think the negative is the nature of reality.  Therefore, we need to be mindful about taking in other good news. Here’s the framework to shift yourself to recognize more good in the world: Pause Ignore More Seek out Share Find a way to make your mission-based business economically sustainable.  More mission-based businesses are needed in the world. Not everyone is going to get what your business is up to.  Focus only on those who love what you’re doing rather than convincing the others to love you. Liesl Ulrich–Verderber is CEO of Ever Widening Circles, a global positive media company with 6 platforms created with the goal of proving that it is still an amazing world. By the age of 27, Liesl was also the founder of three of those media outlets aimed at elevating goodness and progress for us all: an education site EWCed, an endeavor to improve business and healthcare culture at Amazing World Media, and most recently, the Conspiracy of Goodness Network, a personal and professional growth platform where people who value and work in goodness can connect, collaborate, and change the world together.

Finding your Superpower with Alexandra Gilbert
More and more adults are being diagnosed with ADHD or some sort of learning disability. How does one adjust to this new knowledge?  In this episode, we'll be talking about how self-awareness can help them move through what was once a struggle and reveal their superpowers that may have lied dormant, but now are awaken with this new diagnosis. Alex Gilbert spent the first half of her career working in leadership development, then she decided to start a consulting and coaching business that helps adults with learning disabilities and/or ADHD like herself who have been struggling in their careers. Her business, Cape-Able Consulting, was created to help them navigate their day-to-day workloads so that they feel supported and are able to reach their highest potential. Here are the takeaways: Assess yourself: Understand how you think, how you learn, how you organize to create the right steps that will work for you in the future. Use best principles not best practices. Best practices assumes that one practice works for all. Best principles are more customized to the individual, identifying their goal and how they build on that is up to the individual. Often what people are exceptional at is right in front of them. Negative self-talk can come from social media and watching people's highlight reels. Don't forget that they have had to go through all the steps, hard work and time to get to their gold medal moments. Don't worry, you will too. Everyone is advocating for themselves, disability or not. There are a lot of ways to ask for accommodations without disclosing your disability or diagnosis. Celebrate those small moments that lead to the big victories and your success. When we can embrace what it is that makes us unique, we open up the doors to our special superpowers that tap into our greatness and our ability to make a difference in the world.

Dawna has over 25 combined years of professional experience.  As a former Financial Advisor, her book, Financially Fit, is a #1 International Best Seller, bringing together the world of money and the energy body, and the soul's essence.  She is a professional speaker sharing her techniques during interactive workshops and maintains an international private practice.  Dawna has shared the stage with Lisa Nichols, Dr. Joe Vitale, Sharon Lechter, and Kevin Harrington.  Her personal Heart Centered Healing philosophy is to create a world that is a better place for all to live. We think that the things of this earth are removed from spirituality, but in fact they are simply a reflection of the spiritual. Dawna has helped me see the connection and how I value myself. As a recap, the mantra that helped Dawna is: Trust and you will see Believe and you will know Have faith, all is well Follow your heart and Spirit will lead you Here are the takeaways: What we profess with our words and conscious thoughts is not enough to put us in the same vibration of abundance and money.  We must go back to identify an experience that formed a subconscious energetic vibration, or core belief that is not aligned with our conscious thoughts of attracting money. Understand how you feel about money and where that feeling came from is the first step in aligning your subconscious with your conscious. How do you feel without money? You not having money implies it’s not there yet, so tapping into that feeling of not having money can point to the feeling you want to have subconsciously.  The opposite of what you feel is most likely what you need. “How do you feel when you pay your bills?” is another great question to reveal your current underlying vibration. There can be energy blocks that prevent us from getting aligned.  Some of these energy roadblocks outlined in the book, Financially Fit, are avoidance, jealousy, envy, egotism, blame of others, criticism. Money is an outside energy supply to who you are as an energy being on the inside. Lower vibrating emotions cause dis-ease.  Whatever vibration we’re tuning into will attract at the same frequency.  The negative emotions can actually help your soul evolve, pointing you to the opposite vibrational frequency it needs.  The opposite of hate is love, the opposite of anger is happiness.

Living in Your Bliss with Veronique Pierre
Many of us are raised to get a job that can provide safety and security. But what if what is safe and secure is not what makes you happy. Our guest for this episode, Veronique Pierre is an multidisciplinary artist who celebrates life, creativity and movement through her artwork  from the northshore of Montreal, Quebec.  She believes and lives by the philosophy that it is possible to live in our bliss. Veronique evolves in the entertainment industry, the visual arts and is a specialist of theatrical expression in the figure skating world. And fun fact...she loves everything Italian and tea. I believe that we were not created to live in suffering, to be what is called the walking dead, surviving but not living.  I believe we were born on this planet to be expressions of love, joy and light. And we can only do that if we have the courage to live in our bliss. And as we do that, we can inspire others to do the same, just like Veronique. In our bliss, we are able to celebrate and inspire small victories. Here are the takeaways: If you can’t receive the blessing from those you love, have courage in the knowing of who you are and what you were created for on this planet to live in your bliss. Leave space to be open for those clues that can guide you to your bliss. When we’re in a place of discontent, take a time out to get back in touch with yourself.  What you want exists within you. It’s ok to have and express multiple talents.  Embrace them all. There’s room for everyone.  Your qualities, your experiences, your gifts and your perspective are what sets you apart. Be able to express who you are and what you do in your own words rather than comparing yourself to another known brand.

Building Confidence in Entrepreneurs with Rachel Chung
Confidence is a cornerstone to life and business.  Rachel Chung, an ICF qualified Confidence & High-Performance Coach taps into mindset mastery and personal brand image consulting to help female solo entrepreneurs at the start-up stage to overcome procrastination so they can kickstart and thrive in their business with the highest productivity and absolute confidence as their best self. The Dalai Lama said, “With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.”  Building our self-confidence is key to our success, but our confidence is not for us alone.  It is our responsibility to build our self-confidence because it through our confidence we are able to discover our signature strength which we can use to make a positive impact in the world. Through our confidence, we are victorious. Here are the takeaways: Our confidence is a mixture of our internal and external feelings.. Sometimes we need to build our confidence from the outside.  Our posture and facial expressions can help promote confidence internally.  From there, people are attracted to us and their positive feedback builds our confidence. Creating our personal brand can also help support our confidence building. Utilizing personality tests can help us identify our signature strength.  Knowing our signature strength can give us clarity on what we can do to make a difference in the world.  With that clarity, we can take action.  And in helping others with our signature strength, our confidence is fortified. Clarity gives you certainty, certainty gives you confidence, confidence gives you focus and focus gives you action.

Be Authentically and Audaciously You with Harry Turner
In our world, it is natural to feel the need to change yourself.  We’re bombarded with messages that we’re not enough, we don’t belong or fit in, we need to be a certain way in order to reach society’s picture of success.  It’s no wonder people feel uncertain or even fearful of themselves. Today’s guest goes by the alias "The Nocturnal Therapist." Harry Turner, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider, and a Heart-Centered Therapist is more than these titles.  Harry is unapologetically authentic and perfectly human and considers himself a Guide who combines mental wellness with spirituality. In this episode, we’re going to dive into what it means to be authentic. Living authentically and audaciously opens the door to true freedom, for you to be able to create your story, not having your story created by what others impose on you. Living and creating your life from a place of freedom is where the victory lies. Here are the takeaways: Being audacious and courage is required to be authentic. Being vulnerable, meaning the willingness to be seen is a part of being authentic. We’re either operating from fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) or from our faith and values.  When we approach life from our values, it doesn’t matter what others say or what happens to us. We can hold our head up high. We are not our shame and we know this because we are repulsed by it.. Anything we are repulsed by is not who we authentically are.  We are authentic when we are in our joy. Whatever we practice, we become. Our graduation from school is the gradual indoctrination of us taking orders from others.  Our school system was created for factory workers, not thinkers. We are born perfect and complete. We do not need letters or validation from external sources to live out our passion and purpose.

Greatness Rising with Simon T.
Greatness and mediocrity...where does the difference lie.  Simon T. a premier speaker on resilience, inspiration and innovation says there’s only a 2% difference between greatness and mediocrity. Founder and Chief Inspiration Officer of Elevate Your Greatness, Simon focuses his energy on helping others find and ignite their passion for achieving their greatness. Simon has facilitated hundreds of sessions and sparked energetic conversations about innovation and business transformation. An international keynote speaker, Simon has addressed over 50,000 people at conferences, training seminars and workshops. A storyteller, strategist, presentations and business coach, Simon has lead and consulted on change efforts in the public, not-for-profit and private sectors. Global in viewpoint but local in impact, he has been an executive, consultant and speaker in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America. Simon has also worked as a journalist and international spokesperson for major humanitarian organizations in conflict zones. Here are the takeaways: Greatness is not only the endpoint but the journey.  It’s the hours, sweat, and energy that is put in to becoming great that really highlights one’s greatness. Keep an idea journal.  Write down 5 ideas everyday and choose the ones that have value to move forward on. Acceptance is key in recognizing your greatness and resilience.  Each peak is a victory to be celebrated. Humble or huge actions today creates results of change tomorrow. You don’t have to have all of the information to make a decision.  If you wait, you’ll have missed the boat.  Don’t hesitate to make decisions. People refer to them as skills.  Skills can be traded and bought as a commodity.  Great people talk about what drives them, not what skill they have. Great leaders give more than they take. Once leaders level up or shift, they never go back to where they started.  It’s not about bouncing back, it’s about bouncing forward.  Greatness is the willingness and ability to adapt. Change is all about disruption.  It disrupts a behavior, pattern or mindset.  When confronted with unforeseen circumstances, we can ask ourselves, “Is this an opportunity for me to change?” Identify your personal cocktail that will put you in the flow so you can be creative and remember why you do what you do.

Attention: Aspiring Authors with Leah Forney
Have you ever thought about writing a book? Have you dreamed of adding “author” to your list of accomplishments? I know I have. But maybe like you, I have struggled to go from idea to published author. In this episode, we'll be talking with 7x published author and audience attraction coach, Leah M. Forney, who works with aspiring and new authors in helping them solidify their messaging in order to reach their intended audience. Here are the takeaways: Always have a notebook around or near your bed because you never know when divine inspiration will hit. Develop a writing schedule to write for 15 minutes a day. But writer’s block and fatigue is going to happen.  Factor that in.  One simple strategy is to change your scenery.  A different environment or doing something different, like taking a walk, can help you get unstuck and back in the flow of writing. Be open to the shift.  Other ideas may be inspired for the book. Have a typed copy of your draft for the editor.  You can also speak your book and find a transcribing service. Get clear on why you want to write a book.  Your why will carry you through the lulls and connect you back to the bigger picture. The process of writing a book is transformative and healing for the author.  The book is a byproduct of the writer’s growth. Factor your fear into your success.  It’s a part of it and worth it because your book gives your readers a voice. Learn more about Leah M.

Understanding different perspectives and preferences of your followers is essential in knowing which leadership style to use with different followers. Communication in leadership is key to getting buy-in to our vision, but leading by example can help show your followers that vision and its good.  Don’t ask others to do what you yourself are not willing to do.  People can become believers through your actions. Leaders build trust with their followers. Being a good leader requires you to listen, fail forward and put aside your ego. The difference between management and leadership is management is about maintaining control and leadership is about growth and development. When you lead, you’re leading people to grow.

The Power of "Now What?" with Tina Thompson
Life is about taking the baby steps, knowing that you being alive signifies that you have value and you are capable of contributing to others.  But what happens when your body is working against you?  Do you get knocked down and stay down?  Or do you go within to explore different possibilities?   On this episode, we’re talking with Tina Thompson, a home school mom and wife who was living a comfortable life in Alaska. And then cancer hit.  She was plagued with chronic pain and fatigue, bound to her bed for 3 years.  One day, tired of being tired, she asked herself a pivotal question that continues to ask herself even today.    Tina is a mama, grandma, wife and entrepreneur living in Anchorage Alaska for 35 years. After being a homeschooling mama for 27 of those years she started her first business in 2018 as a florist.
