    LIFT Your Story with Darrell And Veronica Williams Owners of Alliance Seminars Coaching

    LIFT Your Story with Darrell And Veronica Williams Owners of Alliance Seminars Coaching

    What an enjoyable episode with Darrell and Veronica.

    The couple shared about the challenges of marriage and the ways to overcome these challenges.

    The two of them met while Darrell was serving in the Military.  Veronica explained that Darrell was very open and honest about the challenges their relationship would have to endure in this lifestyle.

    They spoke to their first child that they chose to have as Darrell was in his last year of service.   The two did not anticipate that their first child would experience separation anxiety from his father at such a young age.

    It was mentioned that divorces used to be primarily the cause of financial difficulties, however, they said today it is more about emotional distancing.

    Very interesting information and worth a listen to for anyone, and even more so for any young couple considering marriage.  Thank you for your wisdom and advice, Darrell and Veronica.

    LIFT Your Story With Storm Cunningham Three Time Author & Executive Director of the Reconomics Institute

    LIFT Your Story With Storm Cunningham Three Time Author & Executive Director of the Reconomics Institute

    Reconomics is the study of how places come back to life.   Storm explains it has to do with "repurposing and renewing and reconnecting of the area's natural and built and socio-economic assets", as opposed to trying to" grow economically through sprawl or by extracting virgin resources or other ways that don't work in the long run."

    This is a very interesting topic and makes so much sense.

    We touched on Storm's other books that led him to the latest one called Reconomics.

    Storm explained that his Reconomics Institute provides the opportunity to become certified as a Revitalization  Facilitator.  The courses are online and can take as little as a month to complete, while some have taken a year. 

    And a fun fact.  Storm is an amateur herpetologist.  "What is that?"  You may ask?  It is the study of amphibians and reptiles.  Storm shares that this has been a passion of his for as early as when he was 5 years old.

    You can learn more about this intriguing subject by visiting Reconomics.org.   
    To reach Storm directly, and to get links to all his social media and where to find his books go to https://www.stormcunningham.com

    Storm is the author of 2002’s The Restoration Economy, which has been hailed by government and business leaders around the world as “Extraordinary”, “Remarkable”, “A modern classic”, “A landmark work”, “Required reading”, and “The most important and valuable business book I have read in many years.”

    His second book, reWealth, was published by McGraw-Hill in 2008. George Ochs, Director of Real Asset Investment at JP Morgan calls Storm “the world’s thought leader on community revitalization and natural resource restoration.”

    Storm’s third book, RECONOMICS: The Path to Resilient Prosperity was published in both paperback and e-book form on January 9, 2020. It’s a guide for policymakers, real estate investors and social entrepreneurs.

    From 2006-2009 Storm was Distinguished Visiting Professor at Seneca College (Canada’s largest college) in Toronto. From 1996 to 2002, he was Director, Strategic Initiatives at the Construction Specifications Institute, a 60+ year-old association of 14,000 architects, engineers, contractors, and manufacturers.

    A former Green Beret SCUBA medic with the U.S. Army’s 7th Special Forces Group, he is an avid SCUBA diver, motorcyclist, and amateur herpetologist. He lives in Arlington, Virginia, USA.

    LIFT Your Story with Kenda Felker Miss Wheelchair Southwestern USA

    Roy and LaurieAnn welcome Kenda Felker, who tells us about being diagnosed with MS at the age of 15.  This is an incredible story of persistence, positivity and a "make it happen" attitude.

    Kenda said that it was hard at first, yet she wasn't ready to give up and stop.

    Along with teaching, dancing, and loving Kareoke, Kenda wants to go skydiving now.  She said her husband is wonderful and supports her and helps her to make sure she can do what she puts her mind to.

     A lot has changed over the last 30 years since Kenda was first diagnosed.  She does share as well about her "fight" to get Handicapped Parking in her small town of Paris in Texas.  

    A must-listen-to episode!  Kenda ends the interview by telling us about the Miss Wheelchair Southwestern USA Pageant event which she won, and will be a docu-series for the first time called A Different Kind of Crown.  Keep an eye out for it!  

    More about Kenda:

    I’m Kenda Felker from Roxton, Texas.  I am a 46-year-old mother of 2 daughters, Montana and McKayla, and a GiGi to Nokona.  I also have 2 bonus daughters Nikki and Hailey.  I have been married to James Felker for 11 years and we make our home in Howland.  I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 15.  It was at that moment I had to make the decision to fight or give up, and 31 years later I am finishing my 16th year teaching junior high at Stone Middle school. I’m a very determined(I like this word better than hard-headed as I’ve been called) woman who sticks by the fact that I am handicapable and not handicapped!  I am not disabled, but merely have modified abilities!

    LIFT Your Story with Ryan Fahey Husband, 3 Time Author and Owner of Fahey Consulting

    LIFT Your Story with Ryan Fahey Husband, 3 Time Author and Owner of Fahey Consulting

    Roy started off with a quote that Ryan provided us in his email. 

    From there we moved on to Ryan's book about remote working.  He shared about his own business having to shift to remote, and how do you restructure to do that.  From there Ryan realized that it was important to provide a tool and resource for those workers transitioning to remote to thrive and be well and flourish in their own work.  After researching books on the subject, he said there were not many.  So this inspired him to write his third book "How To Thrive In Remote Working Environments".

    Very interesting discussion on how to remain social while working remotely, and the biggest challenge.   Also discussed is the responsibility of Corporations towards the support for employee wellbeing.

    You can reach Ryan by going to https://www.faheyconsulting.com, on LinkedIn under Ryan Fahey, and on IG @wellnessrf88.  His books are found on Amazon, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble or Indigo in Canada.

    More about Ryan:

    Ryan is a 3-time author, speaker, and wellness educator who is passionate about personal growth and well-being. He is the Owner of FaheyConsulting which aims to help people and organizations move from good to great. His latest book, “How To Thrive In Remote Working Environments”, which supports the well-being of remote workers globally recently hit #1 on Amazon in Canada and cracked the top 40 books on entrepreneurship in North America. Originally from Eastern Canada, Ryan has dedicated his life to pursuing wellness and is widely considered a thought leader in the wellness & education sectors. 


    Fun fact - early in his career Ryan ran a mobile PT business out of his hatchback.

    LIFT Your Story with Karen Molan NLP Consultant and Self-Improvement Coach and Leader

    LIFT Your Story with Karen Molan NLP Consultant and Self-Improvement Coach and Leader

    You never know where you are going to meet the next guest.  Karen and LaurieAnn met while joining a book exchange online.  We chatted a bit and was asked to come on to share her story.

    Karen resides in Ireland.  She starts off by explaining what NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is.   Although it's mainly about you speak, Karen focuses on how you speak to yourself.   What you witnessed in your first seven years creates your script for life (until you meet Karen, who helps you come up with a better script).

    She says children are great observers, but not great interpreters. 

    The majority of her clients are working mothers who have lost their sense of identity.   She will ask when was a time you laughed so hard... and to connect with that joy.

    Karen's wonderful sense of humor added to this great conversation.   

    More about Karen:

    Karen Molan is a Self-Development coach and leader. For over twenty years Karen has been helping people reclaim their joy in life, remove their self-imposed glass ceilings, and have wonderful meaningful connections.

    Karen runs an online course called Succeed. This 8-week course is designed to help people get a greater understanding of themselves so that they become the leader in their own lives
    She recently published “The Busy Mums Planner and Journal” on Amazon. A planner that
    incorporates monthly Self Care suggestions as well as organizational hints and tips.
    Combining a mix of modalities is what makes Karen’s practice different. She believes there are no cookie-cutter people (except the ones she likes to eat) so then, there can be no cookie-cutter solutions for people. She takes a holistic approach with her clients.

    Karen is a Licenced Neuro-Linguistic Programming Consultant and Trainer; she incorporates
    Individual Psychology (Adlerian) with the NLP. This allows her clients to get to the root of their issue quickly, find solutions and get on with living their lives.

    LIFT Your Story with Cynthia Klein Author of Ally Parenting on a Mission of Creating Harmony Between Parents and Children

    LIFT Your Story with Cynthia Klein Author of Ally Parenting on a Mission of Creating Harmony Between Parents and Children

    It was challenging for Cynthia to come up with the title of her book.  It was through realizing that parents were looking to be an ally to their children rather than an advisory.  

    Before you can make a change you have to figure out if you see them as a source of the problem or can you find a solution together and be an ally.  

    Cynthia has been helping parents for 27 years and has been a speaker for over 600 events, mostly at schools.  Communication is important and does a parent know how to connect?

    We talk about social media and parents trying to get their teenagers to stop being on their phones, yet the parents are not simulating that.  "Everyone has to turn it in".

    We share about how we transfer our own frustration about ourselves onto our children and Cynthia speaks to the age of development of children and how we expect them to be adults, yet in reality, they aren't and we need to build compassion.  Parents have to look at what they think and do and how it impacts their children.

    Cynthia is an educator and helps the parents.  And only speaks to parents.  And they are the ones that need the change.  Our tendency as parents is to think the children need to change.  However, the parents need to change.  "What do I need to do different?"  And "IF" is a threat.  It's powerful when your language changes.

    This in itself is a powerful episode for parents.  A must listen to!!

    Here are some important links to how to reach Cynthia and her free gift.
