During that time, she also broke the UVU high jump record, was the NJCAA National Discus Champion and became the first American woman to ever win the Overall World Cup Title in skeleton. She was favored to win the gold medal going into the 2006 winter Olympics. At the U.S. Olympic trials in October of 2005 an unfortunate accident kept her from competing at the Olympic Games. A bobsled unexpectedly came out of the track and hit her. She sustained a compound fracture to her lower right leg and was unable to compete in the Olympics. One year later, she came back to win the World Championships by the largest margin the history of the sport. She continued on with her education and received a master’s degree in business administration in 2007. In 2008 Noelle decided to take a year off from competition and she and her husband Janson had a little girl, Lacee Lynne Pace. Noelle competed in the 2010 Winter Olympics, on a sled that her husband built, and was the top U.S finisher finishing 4th, just one-tenth of a second out of the medals. She retired after the Olympics to spend more time with her family and Noelle and Janson had a baby boy named Traycen in 2011. The summer of 2012, Noelle and Janson decided that she would give it one last try to earn an Olympic medal, but only if their family could all travel together. Their dream became a reality February 14, 2014 as Noelle crossed the finish line, winning the silver medal at the Sochi, Russia Olympic Winter Games. The incredible moment was solidified as Noelle jumped into the stands to embrace her family while shouting, “We did it!”.  In 2015, they added twin boys to their family. Noelle is the author of “Focused: Keeping Your Life on Track One Choice at a Time”. She and Janson currently manage their company, Inspire Higher, where they strive to help individuals live on purpose through elite online courses, masterclasses, programs and consulting.

Madilyn is an American pop singer-songwriter with an indie-electro-pop sound. After being mentored by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Usher, Blake Shelton, and three-time Grammy Award winner Jill Scott, Madilyn gears up to release an original album. Madilyn first burst into the music scene as a 16-year-old when she became a Season 6 contestant on The Voice in 2014. She began her journey long before being discovered on a national platform. Madilyn’s passion for singing originally started with her family: hearing her mother sing and play the piano along with grandpa regularly serenading at family gatherings. At age 11, Madilyn caught the bug when she performed at a church function. From there, Madilyn sought out vocal coaches and competed at local singing competitions. It was a YouTube video from one of those performances that caught the eye of producers from The Voice. An invitation to audition alongside thousands of hopeful contestants eventually led to Madilyn breaking into the season’s top 20. Fast forward to 2020 and, in a flurry, Madilyn writes more than a dozen original songs influenced by the expansive intimate and anthemic catalogs of ONE REPUBLIC, Coldplay, and Queen.

37-Be who you are with Lee Liston
My name is Lee Liston. I am someone who loves life, puts everything into everything he does, and lives passionately. Whenever I participate in anything I make sure it’s something that I can put my whole heart and soul into. My goal in life is to bring as much value to the world as I can in every capacity possible with the talents God has given me. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will not deny that I have been very blessed in my life and I know that those blessings come from My Heavenly Father. That always keeps me grounded no matter how high success takes me or how low failure brings me down. I am working with all my might to be as successful in my acting career as I can. When I was young I would always lay on my couch and imagine scenes with characters that felt very real to me. I was the youngest in my family and was typically home for 4-5 hours a day until my parents got home. During that time I would get burned out of homework, video games, etc. When that happened I would go imagine I was in another world. Sometimes I would be in the middle of an adventure and my Dad would walk in on me. I would immediately pretend to be asleep as I was embarrassed to be caught doing something so silly. Later in life I asked my Dad why he never teased me about it or commented about watching me have imaginary superhero fights on the couch. He told me “Lee, you were fostering an imagination. Why would I want to ruin that?” If you would like to help Sprinkled with Hope to continue to produce great content with great guests and you feel inclined to help you can contribute here:

Some say I have a black belt in truth telling. I’d like to think I keep it real. I’m a proud Texan but for 16 years, found comfort in the grit of New York City. I recently switched coasts for the sunshine, waves, and acai bowls of Ocean Beach, California. My instagram @aubree.nichols and writing for The Week, Elite Daily and Observer, has helped me become a resonant voice in the self-love movement, which I believe is the ultimate love story. I am working on my first memoir, Enough, that will inspire women to reclaim their power and cultivate a loving relationship with themselves. Spreading the message of self love is my mission. I've been called a dot connector, inspirer and champion of creativity. After 10 years in NYC ad agencies and earning a Masters Degree in Organizational Change, I focus on nurturing creative culture and process. My proprietary workshop, Stoked! helps teams get unstuck and ignites breakthrough thinking. As a brand strategist, my approach is founded in the belief that creativity and effectiveness can co-exist. I earned an Effie for my work on the SAAB “Born From Jets” campaign that increased sales 37% within 1 year. As a researcher, I uncover insights by asking good questions, listening for the unspoken and talking to respondents as dear friends. Whether I’m conducting focus groups, creating a keynote deck, or pouring out my soul on the page, I love what I do. I feel best when I’m creating and am blessed with each new opportunity and challenge.

23-Dealing with Difficulty with special guest Michelle Anhang
Michelle gives some advice on how to deal with difficulties and still have hope. We can all shine our light.  When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." - Viktor Frankl Success is a strange thing. It’s never a linear path, but a collection of events and our reactions to them. What we do with what we are presented is up to us. It makes sense then that our success is also up to us. My path has not been a linear one, as so many of us have experienced. Growing up with emotional abuse in a constrictive house my sense of worth and worthiness were eroded, obscuring my identity. I learned that in order to be safe, I must become invisible and silent. I lived by others’ expectations, never realizing my own. I remained this way into adulthood, my marriage and new motherhood. But then the unthinkable happened. ​ My husband of 12 years, my best friend, died by suicide. With two young children to look after, I shifted into survival mode without ever processing my own grief, confusion and anger. Meanwhile, my husband’s suicide lingered over me, the stigma stripping me of my ability to speak the truth of both him and what happened. I remained shame-driven. ​ Climbing out of silence. I lived that way for over ten years, until I was longer able to carry this backpack of shame and guilt and silence. I was forced to confront everything--my childhood, my husband’s death, and my identity as a widow, all while raising my two beautiful children alone. I started going to therapy and began the hard work of healing and discovering who I was. I learned that my voice was stronger than silence and that I was more than the singular events that brought me to this place. ​ The true me. ​ It’s from these experiences that my coaching practice was born. Throughout my healing and discovery process, I learned what it meant to guide others living with mental health challenges, and the lethal impact of stigma and silence. ​ This is what I do: I help strip the silence, shatter the stigma, and get you on the path to becoming who you truly are. I work to support families faced with mental health challenges, individuals who are ready to stop their own cycle of self-sabotage, and professionals struggling with balance. This is my mission. I hold a BA in Psychology from York University, am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), and a Professional Certified Coach (PCC). I am Mental Health First Aid certified through the Mental Health Commission of Canada. I am also trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and am an active public speaker and educator. ​ I’m an avid lover of dance, reading and general decompression. My sons, Eric and Zack, are my world, although they love to roll their eyes at me, particularly when I’m dancing.  Facebook:  Instagram:  LinkedIn:

I want you to understand how every word you use impacts your chances of getting hired! How do I do that? I work with you to develop a greater awareness of the value you bring to a company, and very deliberately focus on teaching you how to have competent conversations about your skillset and accomplishments.

If I coach you, I want you to have enough confidence, competence, self-worth and understanding of how our mind works so you can self-sufficiently manage your career for the rest of your life!
