#58 - Who’s in Charge? ... Mom and Life Coach Kara Regas Talks About Boundaries
In this fun conversation, Kara shares that boundaries are the answer to perfectionism and the importance of having them.  She also gives examples of how she navigates boundaries with her daughter.  I love how she starts to examine situations with curiosity! Biography I work with folks struggling with people-pleasing and perfectionistic tendencies to rewire the mental habits keeping them stuck in a loop of stress and worry. We look at how our thoughts about ourselves and what’s possible for our lives affect how we think and feel. I help my clients recognize when they’re putting themselves on the back burner or holding themselves to an unrealistic standard. With this awareness comes the ability to slow down and take better care of ourselves, which allows us more energy to go after our goals.

Dylan is a new father who mentors young men in his program, Prince to King.  He shares great insights into the importance of positive male influences in the lives of young men.   (Note: Please excuse the gap in the recording!  We had a little technical glitch) About Dylan I grew up with one of Australia's most famous athletes and coaches as my father. This allowed me to develop leadership skills from an early age having being brought up around football clubs with plenty of positive male role models.  My mum is a meditation teacher with a PHD in parapyscic sciences. This allowed me to have a healthy balance of the practical and the spiritual which plays out daily in my life and my work. I started working with men in 2018 and have loved every minute since.  My "WHY" behind my work can be simplified into 3 points. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and want to change the landscape for men and the mental health conversation as a whole. I remember being a young man, being lost and purposeless. The main conversation in society today being around "toxic masculinity". I want to highlight the positive sides of masculinity and its necessity to men and society.

#36 - Agape Garcia Talks Domestic Violence and Resilience
#36 - Agape Garcia Talks Domestic Violence and Resilience
Agape Garcia shares her story of transforming from trauma into growth.   About Agape Be Your Incredible Self (BYIS) best describes Ms. Garcia’s tenacious attitude towards empowering others. Garcia, over the past 35 years has navigated through domestic violence, privacy, safety, vulnerability, and the mindset to endure personal adverse events in life.  Her survival of a double attempted homicide while 8 months pregnant (by the father) and the desperation to survive became the catalyst to the foundation of BYIS while achieving an undisputed outlook of independence.  During her journey to overcome, Garcia learned that extreme independence is a trauma driven response and a natural one which can be defeated through focused, self awareness and intentional control. Through her own walk, harsh lessons brought on by extreme independence resulted in areas of her life being sabotaged repeatedly.  Her personal journey of post traumatic growth has led Garcia to dedicating her life in developing transformational programs, various forms of coaching, certification courses and establishing a nonprofit to help real time victims. Her commitment is to provide lifelong transformational habits that can restore your powerful internal sense of control. One of her personal statements, ‘You don’t live anywhere but in your head’  is why some of her laser focus teachings are on aligning your mental and emotional belief system. As her passion grew from her own personal struggles, Garcia became active within the community receiving a Mayoral appointment to work with the Citizen Review board in direct conjunction with Internal Affairs.  She received hands-on training from the Sheriff’s department, Department of Homeland Security, and FEMA which also led to the Infrastructure Liaison Officer designation (ILO), through the local Law Enforcement Center. Garcia has spent more than 20 years in the corporate world holding positions in Office Administration, Project Management, Compliance, Policy writing, Team building, Training, Leadership and Consulting. She continued to serve other organizations including the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS), Board of Directors, and holds a current membership in the FBI vetted private sector program of InfraGard. As VP of a Security Consultant Company, she has developed programs with leadership responsible for security and emergency management. These emphasize awareness toward identifying different stages of human behavior leading towards violence mitigation. While working, attending school, and raising her kids as a single parent, her personal priorities of housing, safety and privacy for her children were of utmost importance. This required Garcia to navigate through various self-help centers, state, city, local programs, systems and assistance to create a stable foundation for her family while providing the ability to assist others. She also volunteers and collaborates with local law writer(s), in support of bills under Public Safety. Garcia believes in the need to feel loved, wanted, and cared for as a part of life in all of us. Living through emotional tugs of war and learning to apply a controlled healthy mindset to overcome voids, shortcomings, and to break unhealthy cycles is who she is today versus the opposite of where she came from. Today, she prides herself on meeting the daily challenges of being vulnerable and safe at the same time while empowering others to Be Your Incredible Self. Garcia’s personal mission is to help lead others in transforming their survival of Domestic Violence (DV) into Post Traumatic Growth and to mitigate the depletion of resources for real time victims. Sharing her personal testimony has empowered so many others. She loves teaching her BYIS formula of: How to combine Situational Awareness with Emotional Intelligence to control your triggers.

He has guided me through breast cancer, bathroom renovations and menopausal hormones. I want to encourage women of all ages that they’re not alone. As a former black sheep turned “Jesus girl”, my redeemed life screams of the prodigal daughter unmistakably chosen. And it’s this hope, this story of redemption and God’s indisputable faithfulness that I bring to encourage women. My first book “Listen,Sister! Finding Hope In The Freakshow of Life” (Morgan James Publishers) launches June 14, 2022.  It’s a collection of short, embarrassing yet true stories that reveal how God teaches through every experience, reminding us where our hope lies. Women need to laugh, and they need truth. Bam! Do you want more of Tess?  Go to: https://tessscott.com/  See how else I can help at: flowcode.com/p/1v3hLWFG5?fc=0

D. Neil Elliot, The Power of our Thoughts
D. Neil Elliot, The Power of our Thoughts
D. Neil Elliot is back talking about the power of our thoughts.  You and create the life you want for yourself and your family by changing your thoughts.  I have learned that everything begins with a thought.  Upgrade your life and your children's by changing your thoughts as they become your behaviors and your children will follow. About D. NEILin his words: As I write this, it has been just over three years since I began my journey, utilizing the knowledge I gained to reach out and contact the Divine, and to cleanse and rebuild my consciousness. This contact takes place when you gain the knowledge and insights about the Truth of Existence, Creation, and the twin impulses of being, and follow the instructions provided. Only after I had completed all the necessary learnings and steps was I able to reach out properly to make contact with the Divine.   When I first started meditating, I felt nothing I recognized as contact. After a few months of meditating daily, I got in the swing of clearing my mind completely of the string of endless thoughts that flow non-stop into the human mind and permeate it. As I continued with daily meditations, daily cleansing, and the rebuilding of my consciousness, my contact with the Divine became clearer, beautiful, and more powerful. The stronger the inflow of spiritual energy was, the more my body reacted in movements and vibrations. As I became more receptive to the inflow of spiritual power, I began to shift into higher frequencies of consciousness. If you join me in this process, completing the learnings, learning how to meditate properly, and sticking with it, you too may enjoy these amazing and beautiful experiences yourself, as you ascend in consciousness.

D. Neil Elliot Author of A Higher Road from Suicidal to Thriving
D. Neil Elliot Author of A Higher Road from Suicidal to Thriving
D. Neill Elliot shares his journey to transformation and spiritual perfection using meditation  Biography To any outsider, D. Neil Elliott was highly educated, owned a profitable consulting firm, and had a successful career and an amazing wife and family. But things were not all they seemed to be … Neil was facing a lot of challenges. In a phrase, he was in a dark place. Quite by accident, he discovered a Higher Road. As he traveled that road, he found the key to transforming his life.   Over the course of the following year, Neil lifted himself to an inner state of love, peace, joy, and abundance. His perspectives on life changed entirely. His troubles and tribulations were his impetus to find the key that enabled him to revolutionize his life. He learned that the search for a better life does not entail positive thinking, saying affirmations, chanting mantras, or traveling to India to sit at the feet of a guru—or any other popularized method of “finding yourself.” …The key? To ascend in both spiritual perception and truth, you need to use the right process to break through your entrenched, human-ego barriers. For nearly three decades, Neil read hundreds of self-help and spiritual books and took self-development courses. All of them offered hope for change and improvement, but nothing fulfilled his needs or genuinely delivered on its promises. Neil’s desire—and his new mission in life—is to share the knowledge he gained and the process he used on his journey to self-awareness, together with the blueprint document he discovered that was instrumental in transforming his life. He wants to give you, regardless of your station in life, the tools and opportunity to empower yourself, transform your life, and draw peace, joy, love, and prosperity into your personal situation and environment. Neil believes that as more and more people follow this Higher Road to true spiritual perfection, a New Era of Love and Peace will dawn for everyone throughout the world.

Your Starting 5
Your Starting 5
In this episode, Nate goes deeper into how he 'created' his starting 5.  The people who influenced and helped shape his life.  He also did the same for his son/MIT (Man in Training). Biography Author and TED speaker Nathaniel A. Turner, JD, MALS, is a self-described “Humanity Propulsion Engineer.” Nate is the author of several books, including the children’s book series, “The Amazing World of STEM,” and his history-making book, “Raising Supaman.”  Turner’s appeared in many media outlets, including The Washington Post, Black Enterprise, iHeartRadio, The Good Men Project, Sirius XM, and U.S. News & World Report. Corporations, municipalities, and NGOs like Anthem, Inc., the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the City of Indianapolis, and the National Society of Black Engineers invited Nate to share his practical message for living the life we’ve always imagined while also serving the greater good. A modern-day Renaissance Man, as evidenced by the diversity of his education, including a bachelor in accounting, masters in history and theology, and doctor of jurisprudence combined with a wide range of personal experiences and professions, are only part of what makes his wide-ranging presentations “can’t miss” events. What truly sets Nate apart from others is his unique oft times comical ability not only to see the world differently but to challenge his audiences in an edutaining way to live outside the box so that the world might be able to experience us at our very best. As a zealous advocate that every person has an opportunity to maximize their human potential, Nate regularly shares through books, courses, workshops, and conferences a backward design life process initially created to help his unborn child become a great global citizen and meet the rigorous educational requirements of the top colleges and universities without means of wealth, privilege, legacy status, fraud, bribery, cheating or Adobe Photoshop. Turner’s son not only met Harvard’s admission benchmarks (i.e., test scores in the top 1%, 33 college credits by his junior year, proficiency in four languages, left home after his junior year to play soccer in Brazil; and started a foundation to address teen homelessness); he eviscerated the profiled criterion by his sixteenth birthday. At present, Turner’s son is a third-year Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. candidate at one of the world’s premier graduate engineering schools. Today, those tools, techniques, and strategies initially created to help his Gen Zer thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are educational and life development staples for students and parents of all ages and organizations worldwide. When you hear Nathaniel, not only will it be obvious why he is a highly sought-after speaker, you will never be the same. Moreover, there is little doubt that those in the audience will leave with a renewed commitment to live the life they’ve always imagined while doing their part to leave the earth better than it was when they arrived.

Conversations with Brenden Kumarasamy, Pt 1: How to Motivate Children to Communicate
Communication Coach, Brenden Kumarasamy, shares actionable tips and tools to motivate your children to communicate.  He also shares how to help them realize the importance of communication.   Biography Brenden is the founder of MasterTalk, he coaches ambitious executives & entrepreneurs to become top 1% communicators in their industry. He also has a popular YouTube channel called MasterTalk, with the goal of providing free access to communication tools for everyone in the world. About Brenden "I believe the next Elon Musk is a 7 year old girl who can't afford a communication coach, so it's my duty to help her succeed with my free resources." - Brenden K.  After many years of doing presentation case competitions (think professional sports for nerds) in university, I accidentally developed a skill in helping others communicate effectively and started the YouTube channel MasterTalk because I realized that everything I was teaching them wasn't available for FREE on the Internet. I heard a ton of advice that didn't make much sense like "be yourself" or "get up on stage" or better "imagine everyone in their underpants". I pressed record on my phone, started filming videos on communication in my mom's basement and now the goal is to help everyone master this important skill.

Teaching Your Child to Communicate Effectively
Teaching Your Child to Communicate Effectively
Does your child tantrum because they do have the skills to communicate effectively?  I feel your pain!  Beyond the emotional pain, I have been scratched, kicked, punched, head butted, spit on, hair pulled out of my head, etc. Why?  Because a child could not or failed to communicate their needs or wants effectively.    I would like to help you reduce and ultimately eliminate these problems.  All behavior is communication.  Imagine the life that lies ahead of your child when they know how to communicate their needs and wants effectively!  Whether it's with a sign, picture or gesture, your child needs the opportunity to express themselves.  In this episode I will share some tools that I have used in my practice to teach children to communicate effectively.
