    Episode 28 - The Enneagram and You!

    Show Notes:

    Welcome back for Episode 28!  Today, I interviewed Chelsie Engle of Elite Enneagram Coaching. She approached me to preach the good word of the Enneagram. Though I had never heard of it despite being in social work and therapy circles, I was drawn in by her infectious energy. She also offered to complete an Enneagram typing session free of charge which, of course, sweetened the deal.

    After participating in that session, I was impressed by the complex and exhaustive information that can be learned from completing an Enneagram assessment. Please see her links below to learn more about the Enneagram and how you can participate in both free and paid assessments!

    Episode 27 - Astrology and Numerology

    Episode 27 - Astrology and Numerology

    Show Notes:

    Welcome back for Episode 27!  Today, my interview was with Julia Tallering, a Numerologist and Astrologist, who uses metaphysical techniques to provide insight into your stress management, interpersonal relationships, and employment. I was intrigued to get to know more about how the aligning of the Universe and other celestial movements can tell me more about myself and why I am experiencing Life though a certain lens. Not only that, but how those celestial movements affect the changing of my personality depending on the years and what “house” I am. I’ll let her explain because I feel like a fish out of water - just kidding, I'm actually a Scorpio.

    Stick around for Episode 28 - also releasing today - as we sit down with Chelsie Engle of Elite Enneagram Coaching to discuss how she decodes your personality with the help of a complex typing tool.

    Episode 26 - What is Motivation?

    Episode 26 - What is Motivation?

    Show Notes:

    Welcome back for Episode 26!  Today, I have a question – What is motivation? Better yet, what motivates you? Are you someone who enjoys getting the job done for the sake of completion? Or are you someone who enjoys the recognition of others for a job well done? Both of those things can be motivating, but differently for different people… and it’s important you know which one your brain prefers.

    Come along with us as we talk about what motivation is and the two main types: intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

    **Dad Jokes, of course, are included.**

    Episode 25 - Practicing Gratitude

    Episode 25 - Practicing Gratitude

    Show Notes:

    Welcome back for Episode 25!  Today, I want to talk about how to practice being grateful and how this can help turn a troubled mind toward a more positive light. We often get bogged down in the day-to-day stress without taking time or inventory of the things that may be going our way. To play on a line from the Paw Patrol – “No stress is too big, and no gratefulness too small.” We’ll discuss a couple of techniques that you can try in just a few minutes a day that can train your brain to find the rainbows in the rain. 

    **Dad Jokes, of course, are included.**

    Episode 24 - Voice Act Your Age!

    Show Notes:

    Welcome back for Episode 24!  Today, I want to share with you my interview with co-creator Chris Burnside and voice talent Stephen Gogol, and Jordan Lopez from Dayton Writer’s Movement’s The Hidden People audio drama. I have to be honest that this interview almost brought me to tears because there is nothing more fun than sitting around with a bunch of hilarious, creative people. This interview is, as always, included in its entirety and we let the clock run on entertainment. It is a long one and I won’t fault anyone for taking this one in chunks, but if you need to smile, this is the one. Stick around after the interview for some Dad Jokes of the Week. If your podcast player can see chapters, I’ll put some markers in so that you can navigate around the longer episode. Enjoy!
    For next week, I am going to talk a little about self-love, no not that kind, and gratitude. Two things that can help us reframe out thoughts and give us a mood boost that may be the kick in the pants we need to get finding our new destiny! If you have some thoughts about this, email, tweet, or come to the website at www.findingweird.com and click on the microphone in the bottom right corner to leave me a voicemail message! I may even feature your audio in the next episode!
