Episode #239 - How to break free from the pain of sexual abuse
Joining the show is Rachel Grant!  In her words... I want to put a stop to survivors of abuse feeling broken, unfixable, and absolutely frustrated because it seems nothing they do is helping. Honestly, it really pisses me off when survivors are not able to have the lives and relationships they deserve. Whenever I hear stories of survivors giving up, falling deeper and deeper into despair, or worse, being further traumatized by people who are supposed to help, I get so upset. It also reminds me of my past and how excruciating life was for twenty-plus years. I was definitely convinced that there was no way out of the pain, constant instability, and feeling of worthlessness. It sucked, but I found a way out and I would love to support you in doing that as well. With hope,

Episode #221 - Is it time for a career change?
My name is Jane Ferré and in 2017 I experienced redundancy twice in one year. In March, I took voluntary redundancy from my role as Head of Talent for British Airways, before I was Headhunted by LEON Restaurants as their first Head of Training. 8 months later that role was made redundant and my last day was the beginning of December, “Merry Christmas”! Did I sit on the sofa in my pyjamas binge watching Netflix, drinking red wine and eating Giant Chocolate Buttons? Of course I did, it was nearly Christmas, no one would be hiring now and I had lots of parties to go to – what was the point? Gone was the security of having a (very good) salary land in my bank account every month. Gone was the kudos of my job title. Gone were my plans for a Merry Christmas (we cancelled our plans, didn’t buy any presents and stayed home). The second time was harder than the first, I didn’t have the support network that was in place the first time. As I had only been with the business for 8 months, I was paid my notice period of one month’s salary and I had very limited savings. When 2018 rolled around, I put down the wine, got off the sofa and dug out my notebooks that contained everything I had learned during my first redundancy. If I did not have this to fall back on, I’m not sure I would have got back on my feet so quickly. I’ve learned a lot during this time, I have developed a range of techniques to make decisions about what was next for me, all of which I share with my clients as we work together. In less than a year, I built a successful business and now spend my days working with my amazing clients to help them to achieve their targets. I LOVE it.

They tell me what I didn’t even realize I was thinking, or knowing, or seeing. Writing refreshes me, inspires me. 21Fd1G9LoIGXKQU64BKo

Episode #208 - How to succeed when life makes it tough
Hayk owns and operates a thriving insurance and construction business that he built from scratch. With the years of coaching and developing his top producing teams, he has developed great joy in coaching and consulting other business owners, professionals, aspirants and team members on replicable sales systems, processes of entrepreneurship and personal development. Hayk brings a unique approach to the definition of success. His inspirational story of perseverance despite the immense odds, has helped him inspire others to grow and achieve the success they’ve longed for. Hayk Tadevosyan immigrated to United States at only 13 years of age with his father, having only a few hundred US dollars in their pockets. Since it was financially impossible to bring the entire family to the United States, his mother, sister and brother had to stay in Armenia, a former Soviet Republic, resulting in a 7 year separation of the family. While the father and son duo slept on roll up mattresses and couches in rooming houses, they often went hungry with only Hayk’s provided school lunch available, to feed them both. Hayk developed an unusual fear of new places from all the relocating they did during his childhood years. Moving from city to city, state to state to find work was unavoidable given the circumstances, as it was not an option to skip sending money to their family in Armenia. From humble beginnings in Armenia, where he lived without the luxury of running water or electricity, often going hungry, to now a successful businessman – Hayk has been described by many as a modern example of the American dream in action.

Episode #206 - "But you don't look sick..."
Joining the show is Melody Olander! "when I got diagnosed, I was probably in the “best shape” of my life. I was at the gym almost every day & eating a well-balanced diet. In fact, this led doctors to continually assert that I “was fine” and attribute my symptoms to my imagination or stress. (Dear Drs. everywhere, please change “there’s nothing wrong!” to “I couldn’t find what is wrong”) as many people know, I was diagnosed shortly thereafter with a rare brain disease. Though I’ve had treatments in the past, there is no cure. The diagnosis changed my life, and unlike some people with disabilities, you really wouldn’t know from looking at me. I hope stories like mine raise more awareness around disabilities, and challenge how people think of individuals who live with disabilities. Sick people deserve to pursue joy & not be held down by a narrative that society holds about what being sick is supposed to look like."

Episode #204 - The truth about network marketing
Joining the show is Brandy Shaver! Nate and I  had had enough! I owned my own salon and was chasing six kiddos around. Yep! I said six.. 17 all the way to a 1 year old. My husband Nathan was working full time in the coal mining industry, also running a pest control business his grandfather started and hauling crude oil on the weekends. We were so tired of working and never seeing our kids, not to mention one another. We were making great money but it was never enough.. linear income wasn’t cutting it for us. We knew that if something didn’t change Nate was going to kill over dead. family pic 2015 Insert that call none of us ever wanted to get.  Network Marketing. I was polite (because it was my mother in-law and she was standing in my doorway). I honestly didn’t understand the industry at all. I was ignorant like a lot of people. However, when we sat down and really took a look at what was being taught, we knew this was our ticket to freedom. I had been looking for a way of creating residual income and I found it. I was so excited, in our first 12 hours we had our initial investment back. In our first 6 months we made and extra twenty thousand dollars. Things were going so well we thought we would be at the top of the company in a few short years,  boy we were dead wrong. My  business fell apart, everyone we had enrolled quit except one personal. I wasn’t able to duplicate what we were doing. I went back to the beginning and started over. Even my sponsor quit! I had told everyone in my whole town what we were doing and there was no way I was giving up I am not a quitter!.. I may be a bit bull headed. Ha Ha! I continued to build old school, prospecting everyone that moved and throwing whatever we could at the wall hoping someone would stick. We created a small team that were active and growing. I began to dig, read books, listening to audios, search online, learning from people that had what I wanted. Guess what? I discovered Attraction Marketing!

Episode #199 - Helping entrepreneurs live freedom filled lives by leveraging social media
Cari Higham is a sought-after Speaker, Trainer, and Influence Marketing Strategist that calls Utah home with her husband, Whit, and their three children. Jumping into network marketing in 2013, she quickly learned that there’s a lot more to entrepreneurship than just talking to your friends and family and hoping your business will grow. Relying on traditional business-building strategies to connect with new people, she struggled for over 2 years to grow her team, driving all over the western half of the United States, prospecting people to join her and buy her products. Living in her mother-in-law’s basement because she and Whit couldn’t afford rent while trying to grow their team, she almost quit entrepreneurship all together multiple times. Frustrated by her failing business that was producing less than $100 a month, she put her family further and further into debt as she put all her expenses on credit cards. It wasn’t until she discovered an influence marketing strategy that allowed her to grow a targeted audience through social media and enroll people by the masses, that she started finding success in early 2016. This strategy shot her income to multiple 6-figures less than 11 months later, which gave her the freedom to move out of the basement, get out of debt and retire Whit from his corporate job.

Episode #185 - She cracked the gender code!
Joining me from Australia at 3pm est is Danielle Dobson: I'm a speaker, facilitator, author, corporate advisor and mother, with an extensive background in corporate finance and then in the wellness industry. Now, I'm on a mission: to help bring more gender equality to society and our workplaces, by breaking the Gender Code. What do I mean by the Gender Code? I'm talking about that default set of beliefs which tells us that men are naturally providers, and women are naturally carers. It's the reason our society hasn't been designed with gender balance in mind, and why women are still carrying the lion's share of the parenting load, while also trying to achieve at work and then failing to somehow 'have it all'. A few years ago I identified a lot of parents were struggling with stress and overwhelm as they tried to juggle work and family priorities. In the interest of being able to understand the needs of my wellness clients better, and my own struggles, I conducted a two-year research project interviewing over 50 women (and a few men) in leadership roles across a diverse range of industries. The results of my research formed the basis for my book, Breaking the Gender Code, and now I use these findings and insights to help organisations unlock the potential of the women already on their teams, and attract the right female talent in the future. I also help empower women to rewrite their own code for life, by releasing the pressures we're dealing with caused by the Gender Code, and creating the life they want, on their own terms.
