Change the Plan Not the Purpose - Pamela Henkle
So many words of wisdom were spoken by Pamela in this podcast that it was difficult to choose the title. Any number of things she said would have been perfect. Pamela went through episodes of a lack of confidence and assurance within herself. For example when a rude man looked her intently in her eyes and told her she was a joke in the faith community and that she should go home and take care of her children. She is anything but a joke. It was certainly a blow to her but fortunately for us she didn’t let it keep her down. Someone else came along later and told her she needed to be a trailblazer because she was ahead of her time. That’s the counsel she chose to listen to. This woman is so inspirational, you really must listen to this podcast. Once you do you can check out her own podcast where you will learn she is the founder of Purpose by Design as well as a pastor of Victory Celebration Church. She can be found at

Work Your Grit – Delilah Alvarado
If you like to be inspired, pumped, and motivated listen to this podcast. Delilah learned many awesome lessons as a little girl but still grew up with a self-perception that would weigh her down and absolutely would not serve her purpose. She speaks of her family’s poverty and the hard work it created for every family member. But that was how she learned the importance of effective leadership and that when you are a part of a team, you will have to develop the skill of being able to follow as well as being able to lead. She believes everyone will be called upon to lead at some point. Despite the negative self-beliefs, she always knew she was a fighter, had something to say (just didn’t know what that was), and knew that she could get to the person she wanted to be with hard work. She believes in movement and states “don’t get comfortable with a success you weren’t designed for. Keep moving.” Delilah can be found on Linked In

From Prejudice to Philanthropy - Rich Parsons
Rich was a preacher's kid and grew up knowing the bible truths. But somewhere along the way, he was infected with a prejudicial mindset. He could be around other ethnicities but he came to the awareness that he didn’t treat all people the same. After entering the military, he went to a bar-b-q that was predominantly black people who were making slurring remarks to him and that is when he became aware of how hurtful not treating people right could be. He knew he had to change that mindset. He deliberately started putting himself in situations where people of color and sexual preferences that he didn’t agree with congregated. He learned that people are just people. You don’t have to agree with them to treat them with care and respect. While in the military he coached and mentored people in the areas of leadership, communication, and human resource management. He thus became familiar with John Maxwell and determined that he wanted to take his certification course and do some type of mentoring and coaching for a post-military career. The pandemic spawned an “E” magazine to provide a platform for businesses to share their voice and market their businesses which has become well known. Currently, he is developing a mindset course and a transition course called Become an Interview Rockstar. (Hint: It’s about beefing up your job interview skills.) With his experience, Rich can be of help in numerous areas of life. If you know you need help here’s how you can reach him: Call: 719-896-118 Email:

The Musical Mindset - Stephen Kohler
You have got to tune into this podcast! Stephen is a musician and an executive coach. “What does one have to do with the other?” you ask. The answer to that is everything. His premise is that people have stopped listening. We get so caught up with ‘get it done’ deadlines that we’re out of touch with the most important things. He has a three-step formula for training people how to listen. 1) Listen to yourself 2) Practice listening to those around you 3) Connect with those in your surroundings (audience). Stephen uses music to create exercises to train people how to be better leaders in their organizations and life. It is brilliant. Musically minded people will get it right away. Non-musical people may take a little longer, but they, too, will get it and be transformed by it. I could say so much more but I don’t want to give away the good stuff. Just tune in.

Selling Your Story - Dale Roberts
Ever had a teacher that was totally boring and another that was, energetic and inspiring? Well, Dale Roberts is the second experience. He is a best-selling fitness author on Amazon but he is doing something different now. He teaches people how to write and self-publish books that sell. With a position as an activities director for a senior complex with growth potential, he decided to write a book. It brought in a little over $24 upon which he decided to quit his job and write full time. A gutsy move, but he didn’t feel panic until he had gone through all his savings. He then consulted a coach. In about six months he was up and running. He kept thinking it was a fluke but it just kept going. His youtube channel got started when he tried to save himself by answering the same question one time in a video rather than a gazillion times individually. It grew into the Youtube channel: “Self Publishing with Dale”. This gentleman has the heart and passion of a servant. He love’s connecting people with people and turning competitors into collaborators. If you ever get a chance to talk to him you will find that his passion just oozes out of him.

Lose the Façade - Kelley Sgroi
Talk about a life full of trouble with a somewhat belated turnaround Kelley’s story is just that. From her early childhood, she experienced very negative things and carried that mindset into her adult life. She believed in order to be acceptable she had to be perfect. Along the way, she developed an eating disorder, got married, and had triplets which she found very challenging to handle only she wouldn’t admit that to anyone. She had to keep up appearances of being perfect. While in her forties she was diagnosed with breast cancer. That took a year-long chunk out of her life while she endured all the usual therapies for breast cancer. At that point, after twenty-five years of being a dental hygienist, she decided she wanted to help women and earned a master’s degree in counseling. Even as a therapist, she experienced some very negative things like a narcissistic husband who took her passport and left her stranded in a foreign country. She determined she needed to decide as to whether she would continue to be victimized by her circumstances or step up and create the existence she really wanted for herself. She worked with a coach who told her that the negative self-belief she carried inside her was inviting all the negative stuff into her life. Anyone who has done any self-assessment and tried to turn the direction of their life around will for sure identify with her story. Those who have not done so will be inspired to take a look at themselves and set off on a new journey of their own. For help and guidance, Kelley can be found very easily by performing a Google search for Kelly Sgroi LMHC.

Want to set your mind at ease about your finances? Adam Koren is a compassionate financial coach who takes a creative approach to help people deal with money issues. He finds that people don’t like to talk about money. In many cases, they don’t like to deal with it at all until they are hit with some sort of crisis for which they don’t have funds to deal with but feel they should. Most financial and/or investment counselors deal with the should or shouldn’t rules of money handling. His approach is to deal with the emotional attachments to what things money can do for a person. He likes to determine what: A person wants on both the numbers and emotional side Will relieve their anxiety (which is not necessarily slashing the food budget) It Will help them not be uncomfortable about talking about their money He states the growth benefit his clients experience from working with him is they begin by being extremely anxious and ashamed and end up feeling relaxed, confident, and settled in their mind and heart. He wants people to know they don’t have to face the money issue alone. He does recommend a personal management tool that most of his clients find very helpful which is the free app “Mint” from Intuit. For a consultation, he can be found at and offers a discount for mentioning the podcast so be sure and listen to this one!

Shut Up and Listen - Allison Joan Hall

She stated that she discovered her name Allison, could also be read as All Is On which is how she views herself. She is a pastor, counselor and coach. She grew up with her mother but since her mother did not speak negative things about her father, she remained close to him. She was diagnosed with BI-Polar disease and was on medication for twenty years. She has been medication free for some time now. It started out with her having migraines (177 in a year’s time) and then she started falling so much so that she had to retire from her job. She credits God with leading her through the process of getting medication free and being healed. She says the Lord spoke to her and said the medications she was taking were killing her. She checked herself in to a two week program to wean herself from the meds. Then she did a green smoothie cleanse and ended up becoming a vegan. She also quit drinking anything with caffeine in it. She states that the Lord told her she needed to work out more than the average person. So, she runs every day and swims one a week. This led to her having a daily Facebook prayer run. Many people have gotten a lot out of her ‘Prayer Run’.  You can meet her at  She has also written a book: Cracks in the Potters Clay, How I Overcame Bi-Polar with Faith Note: Some of the links provided are affiliate links.

The Color of Resiliency - Michelle Graff
Michelle Graff Michelle Graff comes from a child welfare background. After a point in her career, she determined she could have more impact by changing her focus to working with the help professionals. This is a packet of powerful information from the author of The Compassion Fatigued Organization: Restoring Compassion to Helping Professionals. The multiple topics Michelle addresses include: The importance of relationships How personal and secondary trauma affects people (The brain reacts the same to both.) The color of resiliency The fact that the helping professionals are not so different from those needing help. Michelle focuses on teaching people how to become more self-aware, build resiliency, distinguish self vs. other’s trauma through self-awareness, how to recognize when compassion is being shut off in the brain freeze response for protection, and know that compassion is necessary and replenishable. Michelle believes interpersonal relationships are very important and we must learn how to set appropriate boundaries as well as be respectful of other’s boundaries and accept the fact that we as individuals have no control of another person’s determined boundaries. She talks about the importance of employing and broadening skills needed to reset, maintain, and regulate yourself into responding rather than reacting to those things that trigger the flight, fight or freeze mode of trauma. One can’t help but learn a lot from Michelle Graff.

In 2015 he left his career as a mortgage banker and shortly afterward experienced the transformational power that came from establishing a daily sadhana. This led him to begin studying, teaching and presenting all over the world, including places like Costa Rica, Panama, India, and the UK. Grant believes wholeheartedly in the potentials embedded in human consciousness and trusts in the practices and methods which support a person’s connection to this ineffable force. He has made it his mission to translate and distill the often fanciful concepts of New Age spirituality into a grounded and practical framework to support human empowerment. He believes that coming together with a common interest to awaken, grow, or heal is the power that we need to change the world.  If you feel inspired to learn more about Yoga, Sadhana, and Kriya reach out to Grant at
