The Small Shifts Your Home is Begging For
Forty Thrive Top of Season 2 -- #6
Today’s episode kind of blew my mind and I think it might really be able to help you as well. Over the summer, I was feeling professionally stuck — honestly, business felt like it was a little bit all over the place. I had a lot of things going on, but it just felt like a lot of struggle with not much gain. And so I invited Feng Shui expert Patricia Lohan into my office. To say that her simple tips changed everything for me is not an exaggeration.
With her guidance and expertise, I’ve made some small changes throughout my home to create more harmony and balance and prosperity and abundance. Today, Patricia shares how you can get that as well.

Taking Control of Our Physical and Mental Health
#7 of Forty Thrive's Top 10 of Season 2
Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton are real life best friends who met at the world famous Second City Theatre and became what we know today as FRANGELA.
But what I thought would be a funny, entertaining conversation — oh and it is — became so much more. We talk mental health, “cancel culture,” why Frances wants to confront Val Kilmer and one of the most important questions you could possibly ask yourself.
Our chat is lively, it’s super fun and it’s a huge opportunity to learn and grow — something as a woman nearing 50, I hope to do each and every day.
About Frangela: You may recognize this genius duo from NBC’s “Bring The Funny,” or “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.” They were featured on The Oprah Show on the “Best Standups in America” episode. They are well known for their commentary on VH1’s Best Week Ever and hilarity on the big screen in the hit films He’s Just Not That Into You and Slow Learners. They are also recurring fan favorites on HULU’S Quick Draw.
