2-1 Top of Mind; Kids, Kindness and Connection
Technology connection and human connection are vastly different. How our kids are handling our overly technical current situation could be challenging. Its time to watch for cues from them and others. We need each other more than ever.

#14 The Seasons of Life with Nancy Robbins
Nancy Robbins joins me on this episode of The Unmuted Life to discuss the changing seasons of life. Nancy is a wife of 40 years, mom of 3 and Nana of 8- and while each season brought blessings and bumps in the road, she grew through them and that did not forget to chase her own desire in the process.  She took a risk on herself to build a business she is passionate about and helps others achieve their home dreams. The revelation with her story is that it is never too late or early to turn your page! Life comes and goes with seasons. Sometimes it is bitter and cold and just when all seems amiss, the season changes and life again is alive and growing. Some wouldn’t be brave enough to take on a new career later in life, but Nancy did. She has built a thriving real estate business sticking to her core values and truly helping others. Additionally, she is constantly stretching herself to become better every day. She challenges herself with uncomfortable things like… being on a podcast, doing FB Live videos, and other social media endeavors. She is a model of growth for us to be inspired by in our own life and choices. Please take a listen to this podcast featuring her story. She also gifts us with a real estate tip for the season as well as 3 ways to live an unmuted life!!

#13 My Meru Experience with Meru Hunter McMahon
My time with Meru is never boring! We have long chats about a variety of ideas, stories, business, and family. Her worldly views and international background bring a fresh perspective to our conversations. She has had the opportunity to live in  Kazakhstan (where she was born and raised), China, and the United States. She speaks 3 languages (not Chinese) and has a witty sense of humor about herself and life-- even though her story has hard times and heartache in it as well. I love her open nature, her passion for others, and how she giggles when she is amused! Read her story HERE. Meet Meru: Youtube link with the songs she wrote for her mother. Be on the lookout for the release of her Podcast: The Meru Experience. Coming soon to a platform near you! Follow The Unmuted Life on Facebook Subscribe to keep up to date on The Unmuted Life Website
