Welcome to the Lemonade Stand, A Positivity Podcast for Women with a focus on serving mature women into the next chapter of their lives in a determined and fun way (cause it’s my favorite age so far!). I am Lauri Mackey, a Certified Holistic Health Coach who promotes three elements of holistic health: psychological, physical, and social well-being. I believe that if you can find and maintain balance in these areas that you have the greatest capacity for happiness in your life. Life experiences and knowledge has made me a cheerleader of hope, a promoter of physical fitness and maintaining a healthy diet (I favor a whole food, plant-based approach), and then showing up in the world with the greatest capacity to serve. This service is why I started this podcast - to bring together the world’s leading experts on having fun, showing up as our authentic selves, and just plain finding tips, hints, ah-ha moments, and life lessons to help in our journey. “Sucking Lemons” moments happen to all of us, but this podcast is here to teach us how to make our own “Sweet Lemonade”.
EP-139 Kathrine Switzer
One Marathon in 1967 set Kathrine Switzer on the path that would direct the rest of her life. The first woman to enter and compete in the Boston Marathon was quite literally attacked by a race official who tried to pull off her bib number while she was running and who later had her disqualified. She then became an advocate for all women athletes when in 1972 women were allowed into the Boston Marathon and later the marathon for women was added to the Olympic Event Calendar in 1984. Come on in and listen to this short interview with Kathrine Switzer (She is a busy lady and we are so honored to have her here!) and learn how you too can be FEARLESS!

EP-137 Victoria Marie
Gray IS The New Blonde! While you can find this as Victoria Marie’s new website and all of her social media AND in t-shirt/tank-top/hoodie form - the most exciting part of this is the “Gray is the New Blonde” documentary coming out this March! More and more women are embracing their gray or celebrating their silver (whichever resonates more with you) and while not all women are taking this track (you do you), Victoria is here to support and empower those who are ready to make that transition. This documentary has been several years in the making supported by friends old and new, along with the literal blood, sweat, and tears needed to make such a historic film. I’ve made the switch to gray and love it! Will you? Listen in and tell me what you think! #GrayIsTheNewBlonde

EP-135 Debra Maldonado
Happy New Year’s Eve! This podcast episode is absolutely perfect to prepare for 2019 as Debra Maldonado, CEO of the Academy of Jungian Spiritual Psychology talks all about goals, action and inaction (and the why behind each when making choices), and what love means to her. How do we know we are on the right path? Where are YOU choosing to spend your power and passion? What is in YOUR shadow? Trusting that all of these answers are already inside of you sounds a bit unreal, but truly…you already have what it takes to make your goals and dreams come true in 2019. Have a listen and Happy New Year!
EP-134 Nancy Sacks
Homeopathy may have been established in the early 1800’s, but it is still a mystery to many. Today’s guest is a Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine, Nancy Sacks, whom I’ve had the privilege to not only interview, but to see her as her patient. I believe in holistic healing and homeopathy is truly a holistic approach to helping your body heal from whatever is ailing it - and I’m not just talking about physical ailments, but perhaps emotional, spiritual, and certainly therapeutic ways. Nancy brings an extensive knowledge of healing, a history of her own healing journey, and culminates this into a “safe holistic haven” for any who are in search of a comfortable, safe space, real life approach to healing themselves. Nancy is fun, down to earth, and if you never really wrapped your head around how homeopathy can help? This is the podcast for you!
Loved learning about Empaths and HSP in this podcast. People are so fascinating and this podcast made me want to listen to more. I loved Lauri’s interviewing skills and all the questions she asked. Thank you for putting yourselves out there and opening up to all of us.
Lauri and her guests are entertaining and engaging. This is such a helpful podcast for women and men alike!
"Patience" is a virtue.
A podcast which seeks to empower women, while the host sees fit to belittle them in public? Slightly hypocritical.
