    How To Avoid The ‘Shoulda, Coulda, Wouldas’ And Discover Your Unique Gifts| Ep. 159

    We all have unique gifts that we can offer to the world. But for some of us, discovering those gifts can be challenging. 
    Sometimes, the very talents that can make the most impact in the world go undiscovered & untapped. 
    And what’s really frustrating is that these undiscovered, untapped gifts are often not buried away - they are talents that come naturally to you, you do on a regular basis, and you give away for free!
    I sat down recently with Lisa Sasevich, Queen of Sales Conversion and author of the new book: Meant For More to discuss the challenge of finding your unique gifts and turning those gifts into an irresistible offer so you can earn what you’re worth and make the difference you’re here to make.
    Lisa shares her easy-to-follow formula that helps you find your unique value, make more money, have more impact, and get more out of life.
    Plus, she has a special offer you won’t want to miss. If you’re longing more impact, more success, more fulfillment, more abundance, more freedom, more joy … I encourage you to listen now.

    Is Standing Out On Social Media Really The Way To Go? | Ep. 158

    As business owners in the digital age, we’ve been taught that a social media presence is critical to having success. And we’ve been taught that standing out amongst the sea of profiles and posts is essential in a social media marketing strategy. 
    But what if that’s wrong? 
    What if we’re causing ourselves and our businesses undue suffering as a result of relentlessly trying to stand out on social media?
    I sat down with Karen Kenney to explore the energy we put toward being special or significant - and the cost we are incurring to do so. 
    Plus, we discuss the joy that can be found in embracing your insignificance in the world and how to trust your intuition to guide you and keep you on the path that you are truly meant to be.

    What To Do When Things Fall Apart | Ep. 157

    What To Do When Things Fall Apart | Ep. 157

    Whenever I find myself in a new environment (physical or emotional), I often feel lost and uncomfortable.
    Whether it’s a literal ‘somewhere’ or I’m stepping into a new venture in my life, those feelings often lead me to feel like everything is falling apart.
    This happened to me last December -– and I decided to post a status update about it on Facebook.
    Today, I talk with Karen Kenney about the process I went through in December that led me to that Facebook post and I teach you Three Steps To Take When Things Fall Apart.
    Plus, Karen and I discuss how the Top 3 Fears keep us from being vulnerable to other people and how to have the courage to be vulnerable anyway.

Anxiety Free Forever ,

Unleashing My Ultimate Potential....

This is my personal theme for 201 which is why I chose this podcast...what lovely surprise. I loved the podcast because it summed up what I am passionate about in helping my clients in my healing and coaching work.

I have spent many years integrating all there disparate parts oft myself and healing the deep emotional wounding and fears and have learnt so much about the soul, which I now use in my work to help others come out of deep despair, fear and anxiety.

Your podcast spoke very deeply to me and helped craft how I want to put my 2016 theme to the universe . For me its all about empowering others to be all they can be..their ultimate Self.

I love your passion and I can feel your heart is full of caring, compassion and finding the ultimate truth in you so you can help others.

When I connect to how I want to help others I am filled with so much love, joy and tears...for me its touching the heart and mind of God. So bless you for your skills, your care and your joy is helping us
