    60. The Story Behind Baby Ollie's Hospital Scare

    60. The Story Behind Baby Ollie's Hospital Scare

    Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show! Earlier this year, we worked ahead as much as we could in our business and recorded a few episodes before the birth of our second son. Now that baby Oliver is here, we are back in the studio and recording new episodes! If you have kids of your own, you know how quickly things can change. That’s why we wanted to take a couple of episodes and give you some life updates! If you are new here and are looking for money-making and passive income tips, feel free to skip this episode and dive into other shows like:
    20. First Steps To Unlocking Time Freedom For Your Family 47. Bradley Sutton | How I Went From Sleeping in a Car To Making My First Dollar Online (and how you can too) 33: How To Create Abundant Money Miracles on Facebook Marketplace Through Dropshipping with Randen Kovacevic 10. Creative Cash Creation - 5 Practical Ways To Create Wealth NOW 51. Nathan Hirsch | How He Turned $5000 into 12 Million & The Scaling Systems That Positioned His Business To Sell And more!!! If you missed last week, we shared the fantastic story of Oliver Wave’s birth. If you missed it, go check that one out first! It will give you more context and behind-the-scenes info about our pregnancy, delivery, and everything leading up to today’s story. Only three short weeks after Ollie was born,  It all started when Chelsey noticed Ollie looked a little "blue," so we took him to urgent care. The Doctor came in and recommended we get him monitored at the hospital as soon as possible. From there, things started to move fast.
    The Doctors and Nurses started poking him and hooking him up to stuff. He was a champ the whole time, but for us, it was hard to watch. What we thought was not very serious turned very serious quickly. Our baby's breaths began to get labored, and every once in a while, you would notice he would totally stop.
    Ten seconds for newborns is normal,  but he'd go 20 or 30 seconds sometimes…while we all would try to wake him. This is what led the Doctor to decide that he needed to be airlifted to a hospital in Sacramento. Chelsey gets in an ambulance to head to the airport, and Stephen gets in the car and speeds the hour and a half drive to the hospital while she flies overhead. Hit play to hear what happens next!
    It was a wild 3-day roller coaster, but we were super thankful we trusted Chelsey's mamma’s intuition and took Oliver in when we did. Disclaimer: Ollie is totally happy and healthy now, and we are all taking proactive steps towards healing. We try to be as open and honest about our journey as possible. Thanks for letting us do life with you and catch you up on a few stories!
    In the next episode, we will be talking with our friend Mike who can help you leverage your brand and reach the right people! In the meantime, check out the links below for more free resources!

    59. The Birth Story of Oliver Wave

    59. The Birth Story of Oliver Wave

    Disclaimer From Chelsey: In sharing stories like this, it can be easy to compare one’s experience to your own. I found during pregnancy, I constantly was tempted to fall into the comparison trap.
    Is it okay if we NOT do that today? Is it okay if we all just leave comparison at the door before listening to this show? 
    My heart is that in sharing this story, I can be an encouragement to all moms and future moms alike. There are a lot of traumatic and horror stories out there..and spoiler alert: this is not one of them. If that sounds good, hit play now!
    I find it an honor anytime I can share my journey and help future moms know that birth is not scary. With that said, nothing in this episode is medical advice. How you respond in your heart and actions to this episode is on you. Stephen and I do things differently than the norm. (But isn’t that why you like us? LOL!) We also want to be as open and honest with you as we possibly can. So, thanks in advance for letting us be vulnerable with you! 
    Okay, back to the show notes!
    Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show! Today, Stephen and I share the before, during, and after events of sweet baby Ollie's birth. On March 6th, 2022, we started a new chapter in our lives as a family of four. After years of investing our time and money in pregnancy/birth knowledge, I had clear goals and a vision of what I wanted out of this birth for myself and for Oliver. That’s why the events leading up to the birth felt so out of control. From Stephen being all the way in Mexico to a high-blood pressure/preeclampsia scare. There were a lot of opportunities for us to give in to fear and uncertainty. 
    Hear how we pushed past the negative voices and medical scare tactics, how we used research skills to find the right answers and peace, why Stephen was yelling and cutting lines at the San Francisco Airport, how God undeniably proved his faithfulness, and so much more.
    This is definitely a podcast family-style show, so if you’re new here, please feel free to dive into some of our previous episodes if you’re looking for passive income and money-making opportunities! But hey…If you want to stick around, this “we first met story” will be funny one day, right?

    58. What If You Were 10x Bolder? Nora McIntosh Shares How This Simple Mind Game Can Radically Transform Your Life

    What would your life look like if you were 10X bolder? 
    Would you finally start that business? Write that book? End that relationship? Launch your new product? Travel abroad? Or maybe, being 10X bolder just means that you could believe in yourself again. 
    The fact is, fear shows up in different ways for all of us but the one thing that remains the same is fear will always hold us back. 
    It takes boldness to create the life of your dreams and break out of the mold. In this episode, we chat with someone who has been committed to being a student of boldness and decided to put the voice of fear on mute and see what happens.
    Welcome back to the Rainmaker Family Show! Today we want to introduce you to the one and only Nora McIntosh. One day, Nora was scrolling on YouTube and stumbled on a video from a speaker she follows.
    “What would you do if you were ten times bolder? If you're doing anything other than that, then fear has diminished you.” The speaker said.
    Those words struck a chord within Nora and now she is on a mission to help others live bolder and finally break fear off of their lives. Hit play to hear the practical things Nora did to start being more brave, how she started this incredible journey, and all the lessons she has picked up along the way. 
    We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did! During the recording, we decided we needed to write the words “10X Bolder” on our mirror as a reminder of this powerful conversation. If Nora’s story inspires you, let us know how you plan to take action! Reach out to us on Instagram. Links and more resources are below!
    When you hit play, you’ll get the scoop on:
    How you can start living boldly today What it’s like when fear runs the show The road trip that unlocked a dream How every season has a lesson How Stephen overcame the fear of looking stupid  The importance of The growth mindset How this mindset can unlock other's boldness Powerful questions to ask anyone you meet When Chelsey decided to take a risk and travel And Much More!
