    Remembering Your Worth with CHRISTINE BAIRD

    Remembering Your Worth with CHRISTINE BAIRD

    In this episode, I’m chatting with Christine, a podcast producer who has worked under Louis Hauz and his production company for several years. Christine teaches people how to podcast like a pro. “I train teams to become in-house media producers.”


    Finding a Common Thread Amongst Successful Guests


    Deciding to leave her corporate job, Christine cold-called a podcast producer and convinced him to produce his show. Moving to LA, she learned her new career on the job. During this time in her life, she was exposed to famous, successful people and realized the throughline for the guests. “Everyone had a rock-bottom moment, a reckoning of their worth, and a key decision where they pivoted and followed their calling.” In addition, the guests found their self-worth, which gave them the means to become successful.


    Coming Into the World with Innate Worth
    The idea that we are already full of worth has meaning for Christine; she calls it "worthful" - the concept being that we are always full of worth. Exploring the concept on her podcast eventually evolved into a blog and her own podcast. "When we know our worth, we show up and contribute our best to the world because we know that we have it in us and we want to evolve along the way."


    Christine is passionate about sharing what she's learned and hopes her listeners know that no matter what you've been through, your worth is intact. It isn't determined--or shaken--by your job, circumstances, or society. Instead, worth is within you, ready for you once you're ready for it.


    Listen in to find out how Christine invested in her own worth, what tools she recommends for beginning your own worthful-ness journey, and her advice for getting through the uncertain times we face now.

Besides playing in the NCAA, Terry has also authored a book, is a blogger, and has been an officer on the local SWAT team where he lived, and is currently battling a rare form of cancer.


    Family and Sports


    While he had a great family growing up, Terry was picked on because of his height. At the age of 13, he grew to 6’5”, with big ears and a size 14 shoe. Fortunately for Terry, he was great at basketball, which landed him a scholarship to college. After several knee surgeries, 


    Terry learned several life skills from his days playing ball. The biggest lesson he learned from playing a team sport is the necessity to do your job as a player and learning that everyone is in the game together - the game he played and the game of life.


    From Athlete to SWAT Team
    The oldest of three boys, Terry was one of three athletes in the home, all standing at 6’5” and higher. After graduating from college, he moved home to find a job and landed a corporate job with Wendy’s restaurant chain. For the next three years, Terry was at home while working his new job taking care of his father and grandmother who were both terminally ill with different types of cancers.
    After his corporate job, he worked as a high school administrator for a stint and then went on to get a position in the local SWAT team, acting as the SWAT team hostage negotiator and undercover cop busting drug dealers. 
    Living the LIfe Terry Needed to Lead for Himself


    Terry’s grandfather was a cop during prohibition and the Al Capone days of Chicago. His grandfather and his dad wanted him to steer clear of law enforcement, however; Terry decided that he needed to live his life for him, not for others.


    Listen in to find out howTerry has survived his rare form of cancer, how he created his book from his battle with cancer, and how he carried on after losing his leg after having it removed from cancer.

    Decoding Narcissism with LILY WALFORD

    Decoding Narcissism with LILY WALFORD

    In this episode, I’m chatting with Lily Walford.  Lily is an international relationship and dating coach specializing in behavioral profiling and body language. Lily is inspired and excited by having the creative freedom to use her passion for psychology and behavioral change to help relationships worldwide.


    Many people don’t realize the abuse that goes on in a relationship with this type of person. After three years of being in this relationship, Lily ended the relationship. However, her ex-boyfriend stalked her for the next five years. She went into two more toxic relationships and couldn’t figure out why she attracted these negative people.


    After using several behavioral therapy modalities, she found behavioral profiling and reading body language. These skills gave her the confidence to find the right relationship. 


    When you love someone, you tend to make excuses for their behavior, known as confirmation bias. “We justify their behavior. When you’re in these types of situations, you create a story that allows you to be in that relationship.” Even though the relationship starts out great, it quickly goes downhill with control and abuse.


    Someone narcissistic has an undeveloped empathy part of the brain. As a result, you have a person who can’t connect and can’t empathize. Missing facial expressions and loving behaviors from parents and caregivers will leave the child without empathy. Then, the person will grow up attempting to mimic empathy, using it as a tool to control and manipulate others.


    Listen in to find out why you can’t change a narcissist, the difference between narcissistic traits and a true narcissist, and how you can break away from a narcissistic relationship.

    Something On My Mind with CINDY MULONAS

    Something On My Mind with CINDY MULONAS

    Please welcome my guest Cindy Mulonas!  She lives outside of Detroit, Michigan, and is the mother of three children. In addition, she has coached many high-profile personalities in her work and has helped them overcome childhood abuse.

    Being Attracted to Toxic Relationships
    “For some reason, in the past, I was attracted to people who were not good for me.” She met her boyfriend in high school and was dating him for some time when they moved to Michigan together. He publicly ridiculed and mocked Cindy, including making fun of her when she gained weight. After three years, she left that relationship and entered into another more abusive one.

    Looking Back at her Journals
    When she looks back at her journals, she can see the patterns of abuse and what she lived through. At the age of 24, her boyfriend was gaslighting her and blaming her for all relationship issues. Cindy felt that she could change him and make him a different person. These are the moments she wants others to be aware of in relationships and how to avoid these types of people.

    Making Excuses to Stay in an Abusive Situation
    Cindy realized that she was making excuses about her relationship to stay married. “You stay in an abusive situation because you feel that you aren’t qualified to stand on your own.” Also, your self-esteem can become so low that you don’t believe you can accomplish what you set out to do.


    She was the only income earner in the family; however, her husband spent money but refused to work. He took out multiple loans against their home and physically abused her daily. Cindy remembers patching up holes in their walls after he punched through them numerous times. Lastly, they took his dad in their home, who was dying of cancer, and he verbally abused his father on his deathbed.


    Listen in to find out how Cindy broke the cycle of abuse and the importance of leaving an abusive relationship.

    Break and Untangle with CHAD PEEVY

    Break and Untangle with CHAD PEEVY

    Chad Peevy joins me today. He’s an Arkansas native who grew up in an abusive household in a small, rural town. In addition, Chad had to hide his sexuality and learn how to lean into his own truth as an adult.
    Growing Up in Arkansas
    Some kids grow up with book smarts, some kids grow up with street smarts. Chad had to stay off his dad’s radar at home and tried to manipulate his environment to create safety at school. “For me that meant staying small, quiet, and avoiding confrontation.” At school, he also had a girlfriend to avoid gay slurs and sat on the school council so teachers would like him and offer him a shield of protection. He was constantly shifting and changing to stay safe and wasn’t able to be himself because of his environment.
    Changing Survival Skills in Adulthood
    As a kid, those survival skills Chad created worked well, but as an adult, he needed to change his tactics with a different set of adult challenges. “I created a mask that I wore with beliefs and mindsets that developed out of necessity.” Although he was successful in business, he was miserable inside as he brought his childhood skills into adulthood. “I had to figure out what was going to make my life better as an adult.
    Coming Out Gay
    Chad realized at the age of five that he was different from other boys. Later on, as a teen, he realized he had stronger feelings towards boys than girls. Growing up in a fundamentalist baptist church, being gay was strongly looked down upon. “There was no healthy role model for me to grow into.” Today, Chad wants to give words and feelings to others in a similar situation as he was with his new book.


    Listen in to find out how Chad came out in college, how he learned to be comfortable with himself, and how he is making an impact in the world today.

    Finding Strength Through Tragedy with ASHLEY MICHELLE

    Finding Strength Through Tragedy with ASHLEY MICHELLE

    My guest is Ashley Michelle, who has resided in London for the past decade. Her book, "Finding Strength Through Tragedy" sheds light on her life and how it was changed forever after she walked into a murder scene, hearing the door lock behind her, and being told she was next! Trusting her intuition helped her to escape, but her life has been filled with PTSD, depression, and anxiety from that moment on.
    Writing About Her Healing Process
    Instead of letting this traumatic moment take over her life, Ashley chose to write about the steps of her healing process to inspire others to turn around their lives after going through tough times. She wants to let others know they don't have to be a victim their entire life. "I want someone to look at me and say, because of you, I didn't give up!"

    Raising Awareness Around Trauma


    Ashley wants to be a teaching tool for others to learn how to break free of trauma. Having a childhood of neglect and physical abuse, she brought those aspects into her first relationship in college. Her boyfriend was physically and emotionally abusive, and her parents weren’t there to help her resolve any issues in her life. Luckily, she had a good friend in college who was able to help her get out of that relationship.


    Her Grandparents as Ashley’s Support


    Even though her parents were neglectful and abusive, her grandparents were a supportive part of her family. “They helped to raise me and taught me how to read and write.” Ashley had a good example of virtuous adult figures with her grandparents.


    At the Scene of the Crime


    As an adult, Ashley had a new relationship. She and her boyfriend lived in separate apartments. One morning he asked her to come over, locked the door behind her, and told her to clean up a murder scene that he committed. The deceased was a mutual friend. He wanted to have sex with her, threatened to murder her with a knife to her back.


    After this experience, she never felt like the same person. “I became anti-social and all I wanted to do was to sleep.” Several months after the incident, she mixed pills and alcohol in a suicide attempt.


    Listen in to find out how Ashley turned her situation around, how she pieced back her life, and how she deals with survivor guilt.

Fabulous

The work this woman, Tiffany, is doing is fantastic.
The guests she brings on, to share the message of pain, trauma, and abuse, but more particularly how they have overcome and healed, is awe inspiring.
There are so many positive messages and insights gained from each of her guests.
I couldn’t recommend this podcast more highly!
