    S4E6: Hope Makes A Comeback

    We are certainly heading towards some pleasure, some decadence.  Many predict something similar to the roaring 20’s that followed the Spanish flu pandemic – pleasure does most certainly follow pain but the two are kindred spirits in the same cycle that is predictable and always returns to pain – why?

Love this podcast!

Such great advice and I love that it centers around one point - the ego. Once you figure out how ego drives negativity and negative results, everything changes. Cy is great and so easy to relate to. Thank you Cy!

Ego is not your Amigo

If you have drama in your work or personal life and don’t know how to deal.... plug in and listen up. Simple, effective, and why didn’t I think of that?! It will change how you see your world and the world others present to you. Self reflection, making positive choices and toggling up when you want to have your own pity party. Pack up the drama and live a better life! Cy will help you work through it. I learn something with every episode.

Legendary leaders!

Cy and her stellar guests shine the brightest of lights on what it means to be a leader! Bold, insightful, and engaging are just a few of the words I’d use to describe the time you’ll spend with them. You’ll get tons of actionable advice and tangible tips, but you’ll also get heaps of inspiration from truly engaging individuals that have been where you are and want to see you succeed. Thanks for putting out such a superb show Cy - keep up the great work!
