    Discover Your Spark and Fulfillment in the Second Chapter of Life with Laurie Wright

    Discover Your Spark and Fulfillment in the Second Chapter of Life with Laurie Wright

    I feel there are many negative stereotypes and expectations about what is involved in the aging process, especially for women. That is why I invited our special guest, Laurie Wright a.k.a. Not Your Average Grandma, on the show to talk to us about how she found true alignment personally and professionally. Listen in as she shares about the significant midlife transformations that led her to clarity and discovering her own spark and true fulfillment as well as techniques to help you past your own limiting beliefs so you can find real happiness and alignment too. 
    Laurie Wright, known as Not Your Average Grandma™, is the founder of the Second Half SPARK School™ and host of the Not Your Average Lives™ podcast. Her mission is to help empty nesters, who wake up most days feeling unmotivated, unexcited, and without clarity about what’s next, discover the spark they so desire so that they can live out the rest of their life being who they are meant to be and doing what brings them a deep sense of fulfillment in a way they have likely never known.
    Timestamps:
    • [3:52] Laurie explains how the hashtag #notyouraveragegrandma started as a joke but sparked her midlife transformation. 
    • [12:48] “When something really resonates, and something really intrigues you, follow it, pursue it, be more curious about it, learn more about it…”
    • [17:13] We have this agreement, and that we came here with this agreement to be somebody and do something.”  
    • [22:25] Laurie explains SPARK, seeing where you want to go, planning it out, taking aligned action, reckoning or discovering who you really are and the kismet or faith involved in it all.

    Here's Your Two-Step Process for Building a Life of Integrity

    Here's Your Two-Step Process for Building a Life of Integrity

    Do you have trouble keeping your word when it comes to things you're promising to yourself? What about other people? In this episode, I am talking about an important concept that so many struggle with - integrity, how it is defined, what it really means and why it seems easier to keep our promises to others than it is to ourselves. Stay tuned as I talk about the belief systems and psychology behind it all and offer you a simple process to start observing yourself more kindly and objectively so you can build towards a life of integrity.
    Timestamps:
    • [3:12] “I've always wondered, why does this type of imbalance exist? Why should it be so much easier for me to keep my appointment with my dentist than it is to keep my appointment with cleaning out my closet?”
    • [4:42] Dr. Li talks about the belief systems that need to be changed in order to live a life of integrity to ourselves.
    • [5:48] Christine defines coherence… “our minds are always seeking something called coherence. And that means if we have a belief system, our mind and our body are basically primed then, to search for confirmation of that belief system.” 
    • [8:13] “When we feel that we're in integrity, we have a wellness that comes over our mind and body when we act in integrity with our word.”

    "Self First is Not Selfish": Learning to Define Success from the Inside Out with Shelley Paxton

    "Self First is Not Selfish": Learning to Define Success from the Inside Out with Shelley Paxton

    Have you ever had the experience of knowing that you were NOT going in the right direction for yourself or for your career? Listen in as my special guest, Shelley Paxton, discusses redefining and waking up to your truth, solidifying what matters the most and creating a future that is more in alignment with who you are meant to be. Stay tuned as we discuss slowing down to meditate and listen to your body, feeling brighter, more energetic and like the most powerful version of yourself and understanding that success is something that happens from the inside out.

    Think Brené Brown meets Biker Babe, with a dash of Liz Gilbert. As former Chief Marketing Officer of Harley-Davidson, Shelley Paxton found herself at the top of the proverbial mountain feeling success-EMPTY instead of success-FULL. That awakening led her on a profound Soulbbatical journey that became her mission, business, and bestselling book, Soulbbatical: A Corporate Rebel's Guide to Finding Your Best Life. She’s leading a REBELution to rewrite the script of success and liberate a billion souls. She also hosts the Rebel Souls podcast which invites you to flip the middle finger to the status quo in life, business, and the world at large. 
    Timestamps:
    • [6:14] “We're all coming out of this two year pandemic that crystallized what matters most. And now it's up to us to create going forward in a way that feels more aligned with our truth.”  
    • [7:22] Shelley talks about listening to our bodies because they are always telling us the truth. 
    • [16:59] “I'm really obsessed with this idea of successful because it really is reframing success, its success as a feeling, not as a checklist, and its success as something that happens from the inside out.”  
    • [19:59] Shelley explains that giving yourself the space and time to dig deep will help you find the most powerful version of yourself.
