    The Team Audio Book- Frances Key and Special Guest Lisa Simone

    The Team Audio Book- Frances Key and Special Guest Lisa Simone

    What an episode I have for you today! Lisa Simone and Frances Key talk about The Team Books.

    Frances Key is the channel for the greatest series of books I've ever read. She's appeared on Grief 2 Growth multiple times, and I'll get her back whenever I can. In addition, today Lisa Simone, author, actor, singer, executive producer, and daughter of the great Nine Simone, joins us. Lisa became a fan of Frances and the books and is one of the narrators of the brand-new audiobook version!

    I'm not prone to exaggeration. The Team books have changed my outlook on life as much as any spiritual material I've read.

    On October 9, 2010, at the age of 86, Gloria Crystal "Teddy" Key passed away at her Florida home, her family by her side. Nineteen days later, her lilting voice began to communicate with her eldest daughter, Frances, about the scope and wonder of her new perspective from the afterlife state. Through various experiences, including direct contact with her mother, automatic writing, and sudden downloads of information, this remarkable 4-book series was handwritten in less than a year. The Team material has astounded a growing circle of readers with its unique analogies, wit, depth of wisdom, and unusual outlook on the experience of being human while belonging to a spiritual team.

    Frances, a retired teacher, writes books, songs, and scripts. She has been involved in various creative projects, including musical theater, writing choral music, and much more. She will share with us today information about the recent Audiobook release of Team Book One and her newest creative projects.

    Why Meditation Isn't Working For You

    Why Meditation Isn't Working For You

    Why meditation isn't working for me is a common search I recommend meditation to all of my clients. I can't count how many have told me, "I can't meditate. Meditation isn't for me."

    I've been meditating for about 15 years. I've studied several types of meditation, used apps, and bought devices. For several years, I meditated without missing a day.

    When I learned Kelvin was offering "Turning Within" as a class, I wondered what I could learn about meditation. Not that I know it all. But, I found a practice that worked well for me.

    I've been training with Kelvin for about two weeks as of the recording of this episode. His technique is simple, easy, and effective. Kelvin has taught experienced meditators to improve their practices, and his technique is easy enough that a beginner probably will pick it up easier than someone seasoned, like me, who has learned all kinds of wrong information.

    Pancakes For Roger-Advice From A Father

    Pancakes For Roger-Advice From A Father

    Susan L. Combs is President of Combs & Company, a full-service insurance brokerage firm based in New York City. Susan started the company at twenty-six years old with a drive to “Do more, better.” This internal mantra has resulted in numerous successes and firsts, like being named the youngest National President in the over eighty-five-year history of Women in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS) and the first female Broker of the Year winner for BenefitsPro.

    Susan is “a Missouri girl in a New York world,” The lessons she learned during her Midwestern upbringing and two-plus decades in New York City are the basis of the book we discuss in this interview.

    The insights contained in these pages come from family, friends, colleagues, and life in general. But the most important teachings are from her late father. His steady guidance in life set Susan’s foundation, and his passing inspired her new movement, Pancakes for Roger (www.PancakesForRoger.com).

    When Susan’s not running her business or trying to help others through their challenges, you can find her flipping tires at her beloved CrossFit gym, supporting the Missouri Tigers, KC Chiefs, and Royals, or slaying the dragons that have come her way.

    The Carefree Medium- Susanne Wilson

    The Carefree Medium- Susanne Wilson

    It was thrilling to sit down with Susanne Wilson to catch up on what's been happening in her life. Susanne is the first medium I had any experience with. In March 2016, someone gave me a gift of a reading with Susanne. That was a high bar to start with. After a couple of minutes, it was like she had known me all my life. She brought Shayna through loud and clear. Since then, Susanne and I have run into each other several times at various events.

    Susanne Wilson is an accomplished medium with broad knowledge about the afterlife, afterlife communication, and paranormal subjects. Her teaching and presentations are always engaging, informative, and entertaining.

    Susanne kept her natural-born talents hidden for many years until a Near Death Experience nudged her to come out of the closet as a medium.

    Susanne is known as the Carefree Medium. She is based in Carefree, Arizona-based. She is an intuition educator, author, medium, and paranormal presenter. Susanne appears on venues including Coast to Coast AM, Gaia TV, and Amazon Prime. She is a faculty member of the Superpower movement, a film series dedicated to igniting your intuitive intelligence.

    Susanne holds a Master’s degree in public affairs policy, a Bachelor’s degree in management, and certifications from Stanford University. Susanne is a globally recognized researcher and a beloved educator on a wide range of paranormal topics. As the Intuition Educator, she offers live and on-demand mentoring and courses.

Susanne Wilson

As always, you are Good listener Brian. This interview was very personal for Susanne and I appreciate the way you let your guests tell their stories. I especially enjoyed the end of the interview where Susanne discussed the younger generation and the thinning of the veil. It was very hopeful and uplifting.
