    306. ShowOff Project - Karen Stanton interviews Merilyn

    306. ShowOff Project - Karen Stanton interviews Merilyn

    The final episode in this special edition series is me!  One of the biggest requests I get is 'can someone interview you Merilyn?'. So we did it. 

    The amazing Karen Stanton hosted the interview. I had no clue what the questions were, so it's a very candid chat. 
    I truly hope hearing my 'wow' inspires and encourages you. For more details and to see the video of this episode, go to merilyn.com AND.... if you watch to the end you'll see a glimpse of some of the candid 'after recording' chat.  
    Background to The ShowOff Project:
    As part of International Women's Day I've been showing off everyday women from every continent.  My hope was to bring insight, encouragement and inspiration at a difficult time on the planet.  And, most importantly, to help re-imagine what every day women leading their worlds looks like.

    304. ShowOff Project - with Brandi Bernoskie, CEO & Digital Strategist

    Today I’m 'showing off' Brandi Berkonskie. She's amazing. Truly brilliant at what she does and who she is. It can be a little hard to define Brandi as she'd definitely one of those multi talented, highly gifted Renaissance women.
    She's currently digital strategist and CEO of three companies that help business owners elevate their online presence and enhance the whole digital experience. But she can’t be put in a box that easily – with a big academic background fused with theatre, philosophy, physics and even archery.
    Brandi has since worked with thought leaders such as Brené Brown, Martha Beck, Kate Northrup, Laverne Cox, and many others.

    301. ShowOff Project - with Laura Sweet, artist & writer

    301. ShowOff Project - with Laura Sweet, artist & writer

    If you look up the definition of 'mother archetype' in the dictionary, my next guest Laura Sweet would probably have her name there as an example. 
    She's been a client of mine and has been active, nurturing, inspiring part of my Lead Your World community for a while, so it is with great pleasure that I get to 'show her off' today.
    Laura Sweet is a writer and artist living on a small homestead in Northern California between the Redwood Highway and Blacksands beaches of the Lost Coast since 1994.
    She and her husband of 37 years, Homeschooled their two daughters in a beautiful rural community and now maintain an integral role in the lives of three grandchildren as well.
    Laura’s creative lifestyle is a practical expression of both her transformational health and her natural reciprocity with life. It is how she remains devoted to the mercurial essence of the world she inhabits. If she could impart one simple thing to every soul in the world, it would be that they are whole, holy beloved and worthy of encountering themselves thus.
