    LP&B 76 Sarah Griffiths Trauma and Abuse Therapists.

    LP&B 76 Sarah Griffiths Trauma and Abuse Therapists.

    My guest on the programme today is Sarah Griffiths and she is a The trauma and abuse therapists.
    We recorded this show just as the lockdown was taking shape across the world. Sarah at that point was stuck in Bali and trying to get back to Australia.
    How is very grateful that Sarah found the time to speak to me given that she was in the middle of trying to negotiating a flight home.
    Sarah was a successful businesswoman, seeming high functioning and from the outside successful. She had the great job, the husband the house and the children, it all looked fantastic, however, on the inside she was slowly unravelling. Sarah battled her extreme insecurities and lack of self-confidence for many years, she almost committed suicide.
    It was that moment of despair that she found the strength to pull herself out of it and start the long journey towards recovery.
    The seeds of her trauma started with childhood bullying and culminated at the age of 45, caught in a narcissistic marriage.
    Our conversation is the story of her journey towards recovery.
    Her journey led to her training as an RTT therapist, specialising in Trauma and Abuse, and developing her signature system and methodology to help people rapidly heal from the debilitating effects of past abuse.
    And that was life passion and business with Paul Harvey and my guest Sarah Griffiths.
    If you have been affected by trauma in your and would like to catch up with Sarah, you can find on Facebook and LinkedIn or at her website which is Sarahg.com
    These links will be available at the website life passion and business.com beneath the podcast player as usual.

    LP&B 75 Cheryl Jacobs Serial Entrepreneur

    LP&B 75 Cheryl Jacobs Serial Entrepreneur

    My guest on today's programme is the Serial Entrepreneur Cheryl Jacobs.
    Looking at her life, you could say she is currently at the top of her game but then who said there was a top. We only reach a ceiling in life when we decide we have and cannot see Cheryl choosing to stop any time soon.
    For Cheryl, the journey did not start like this, she was born and raised in Ohio, her father worked in a factory, and her mother was a secretary. She was one of three siblings growing up in an impoverished part of town. They played outside most of the time, no internet, no cell phones.
    One never asks the age of a lady, but to be growing up before the internet does set a place in time.
    At 18 she married her high school sweetheart and by 19 had two beautiful children but now living in poverty. Relying on charity for groceries and hitchhiking to travel to work or school.
    Young love either works or it does not, the relationship with her husband did not last, and he became an ex-husband who was an abusive alcoholic.
    She has always looked after her appearance. The big break came when a modelling agency discovered her and ended up with two agencies, one in New York City and another Los Angeles.
    It was these contracts gave her the resources and security to move on in life. However, the universe was not done, her mother and grandmother died within months of each other.
    Now on her own with a young family depression became that ever-present unwelcome friend. It was the words of her mother that pulled her through and kept her going.
    "You're smart enough and strong enough to stand on your own two feet."
    Somehow she found the resources and motivation to start her first business, a modelling and talent agency.
    Today she runs ten successful businesses, which includes a children's party franchise, with 300 character costumes, 70+ employees and pre lockdown they were operating nearly 100 parties a month. Her tenth project is the Elight flying club a private jet hire and pilot service.
    She is a firm believer in fitness health; not every grandmother looks like she does, as I said before there is and will be no stopping of Cheryl Jacobs
    Her big mission is to help as many people get out of their way to be successful. She has written 5 books and speaks on the subject around the world.
    I hope you enjoy the conversation with Cheryl Jacobs

    LP&B Lisa Barry Mission Led Content

    LP&B Lisa Barry Mission Led Content

    My guest on the show began her career as a teacher, and while she left it behind long ago, she still retains that awareness into her business. Lisa Barry Mission led content, is all about getting business owners to align with their mission and values and bring it to the world through the marketing of their business.
    One week ago today, Lisa was one of the speakers at our virtual event Living beyond the change. It exceeded my expectations on many levels. But the biggest win for me was the clarity I have discovered for this podcast.
    All of the speakers at the event had been on a journey. They overcame an obstacle and out the other side, richer for the experience. We all have that capacity and need to move through the fear and seize the opportunities the universe provides
    There will be more events, but in the meantime, it will be the role of Life Passion and Business to spread the stories of people as role models for what is possible.
    Lisa Barry Mission Led Content
    Lisa was never motivated by money and wanted a life that had value and a role where she helped people. She went to Uni and got a degree in teaching, she trained as a coach and found work supporting young people to raise their aspirations and find their soul purpose.
    The work was good, but life itself was a struggle, especially with a mortgage and growing family.
    It was a redundancy that pushed her to discover a talent for writing, that lead on to discoveries in marketing and business.
    Like most stories, it is not a line straight to success. But successful, it was to the point where last year Lisa's husband left his job to work with her business. The plan for 2020 was the family to start a travel adventure throughout Europe.
    We recorded this show in the middle of March before a little matter of a pandemic was changing the plans.
    Because Lisa was one of our speakers, it seemed logical to get this show out because it coincides with a free challenge that may be of interest to you.
    Lisa is running a free five-day challenge to help people produce social media content that is in line with mission and values. It is starting on Sunday, 10th May. It is open to all, and I know it will be worth your time.
    Full details are at the end of the show.
    I hope you enjoy the conversation with Lisa Barry.
    As mentioned there was a 5 day challenge that is about to start on Sunday the 10th 
    If you'd like to follow it up very simple go Lisa Barry Online to the Facebook page and there will be a button somewhere.
