My guest today is Annie Allen, a certified divorce coach and the founder of “Starting Over Stronger” - Divorce Survival and Recovery. Annie is an upbeat and vibrant personality as you’ll soon witness for yourself. During our fast-paced conversation she clearly demonstrates her personal strength in helping women going through a divorce with the support and confidence building required to come out the other end in a healthy and positive state of mind.

Catching Up with Ryan Foland, Speaker, Author, Sailor and Ginger
My guest today is Ryan Foland, Speaker, Author, Sailor and Ginger. In this recent catch up conversation with Ryan we discussed the nuances of speaking less but saying more. A skill set that he has really mastered so well. In fact, so much so that he teaches people around the world with his patented 313 Methodology to fine tune their message. He has a new online course for startups and you can access that at Ryan.Online/Start   There’s a new book in the works which is a follow up to his very successful “Ditch The ACT” published in October 2019, called “Ditch The Pitch”. So sit back and enjoy this very colourful guy who I’m pleased to call friend and collaborator, the Ginger Ninja himself, Ryan Foland. He’s truly a fun and dynamic personality and it’s no surprise to find him on the most wanted speakers list globally as he’s both educational and entertaining. Thanks for listening in.

In Conversation with Vidusha Nathavitharana, Founder and Destiny Architect, Luminary Learning Solutions
You Are Your Brand Podcast with your host, Peter G. Goral My special guest all the way from Sri Lanka is, Vidusha Nathavitharana, Founder and Destiny Architect, Luminary Learning Solutions He’s a rather extraordinary guy, a great storyteller who take the time to be the best he can be at all times. There’s no middle ground with Vidusha, and his charming manner remains intact even if he doesn’t agree with you. I believe there’s really no loss column in his books...he reminds me of that great quote from my favourite “Servant Leader”, John Maxwell, “Sometimes you Win...Sometimes you Learn." Vidusha suggests that he's always been an explorer, a dreamer and an adventurer, and that he's rarely content with what has been accomplished, and revels in seeking out a challenge. He's ambitious - not for ambition's sake but because pitting himself against a challenge betters him on a daily basis. He's a rather intriguing guy that was brought to my attention a couple of years ago by Thayalan Anton who works alongside Vidusha as the organization's Chief Evangelist. Anton and I are quite well known to each other and in fact, we've already had the pleasure of sharing a number of extremely great Zoom chats together over the years. I was therefore, not surprised to find Vidusha, a very down to earth and natural guy who operates a jargon free, no-nonsense style of management consulting business. Learn more about Vidusha and his mission here: http://www.luminarylearningsolutions.com #podcastguest #personalbranding #leadershipdevelopment

In Conversation with John Colgan, CEO and Co-Founder, Solgari
Well, I have to say that I’ve never experienced a “Fireside Chat” at 8 o’clock in the morning. At least not until I connected with John Colgan, CEO and Co-Founder of Solgari, in Dublin, Ireland. His warm and casual conversational style truly makes in a person who has you feeling at ease, at home, and by the fire. He’s a vibrant individual and extremely passionate about the company he keeps and the business he operates. He's focused on “One Thing”...the Customer. So I invite you to pull up a chair and enjoy John’s insights and light hearted conversation. He’s an open book about both himself and the business, and I have to say, that when the leader of an organization is as forthcoming and transparent as John was with me, it does make it easier to understand and do business with that entity. There’s a lesson in there for many of us. I hope that you’ll enjoy this episode, and thank you for listening. You can gain more insight on Solgari at this link www.solgari.com

Dan Bennett, Storyteller Extraordinaire, Video King, The Man Behind The Antipreneur Movement
Sit back everyone, grab a drink and get ready to enjoy my conversation with Dan Bennett...Storyteller Extraordinaire, Video King, and the man behind the Antipreneur Movement. Listen in as he shares his insights, experiences, as well as shows us even his most vulnerable side. A side that keeps him top of mind with me when I hear the words, “Tell Me Your Story”...enjoy! Dan develops authentic and powerful stories for his clients, empowering them to reach their business and creative goals, and video is often the vehicle that then takes that story to its final destination. You'll know that you’ve met someone that is unlike anyone else in the business as soon as you visit his website. It’s not about him, in fact, he doesn’t even have an “About Me” section. Why? Because it’s not about him, its purpose is to offer you and your business the spotlight. Dan is such a pleasure to work with and so giving. He has a great podcast himself, and an amazing YouTube Channel and you can find your way to him by visiting his website at this link: The Antipreneur

In this session we talk about the need for being focused, managing our BS meter and the wavering desire to be mature and yet youthful at the same time, It’s a fun session and I hope that you enjoy it. Feel free to connect with Jen at hello@myrealtorjen.ca if you’re in the Burlington market and need some help with choosing or selling a home.
