    Speaking Of The Family, with special guest Laura Sharp-Waites

    Speaking Of The Family, with special guest Laura Sharp-Waites

    Family. We all have one. Ours is always more dysfunctional than our neighbours' or colleagues' families combined. Right?  WRONG!  There's nothing wrong with your family...but you need to open the communication so there is open dialogue about everything! Especially when both Mom and Dad are working, possibly in professional roles.  Today's guest shares how she helps families SPEAK UP and grow together. 

    Laura Sharp-Waites is a Life & Business Accelerator and Founder of Heart Unburdened. Helping people has always been a gift for Laura Sharp-Waites. For many years, she was a Special Education Teacher and a College Professor, supporting people of all ages and walks of life through a myriad of personal, professional, spiritual struggles. 
    Her life changed dramatically when she faced a battle with breast cancer. During the diagnosis, a pre-cancerous tumor was found. While having something removed that could cause additional cancer seems like a great thing, it also meant the end to the dream of Laura and her husband Todd having a biological baby. As a result, Laura experienced major grief over the loss of her ovaries. Laura's healing was the catalyst that propelled her into further training.
    Laura now blends her extensive educational experience and certifications to help . Laura holds a number of certifications, a Master’s in Special Education, a Master’s in Divinity: Pastoral Counseling, and a Doctorate in Higher Education.

    Speaking To Ignite Your Purpose, with special guest Karem Zafra-Vera

    As a speaker you know your talk needs a purpose.  You need to know why you're speaking so you can therefore give the audience what they need, and encourage them to follow through.
    What if we used speaking though as a way to ignite your true purpose?  That's what today's speaker will speak about...and how to ditch the influential, habitual and, in some cases, cultural beliefs that are blocking us from truly igniting our purpose!

    Karem Zafra-Vera is a published Author and International Best Seller “Voices”. Karem’s
    passion is serving people to step into their own light. She says, “It is your God giving birthright
    to live a life on your highest terms”. Her curiosity in personal growth began over 10 years ago
    while she was still in the field of Conflict Resolution specializing in Family and Circuit Court
    mediation throughout the State of Florida. In 2018 life took a turn for her and she further dove into deep personal growth.

    Karem closed her mediation practice and launched her coaching career. She is now the Founder of Next Level Consulting also known as “Mindful With Karem.”

    In 2020 Karem was featured in Debra Wallace Silver Lining Story. An article on how business
    owners pivoted during the pandemic.  https://patch.com/pennsylvania/philadelphia/how-philadelphia-business-owners-pivoted-during-pandemic.

    In March 2021 she launched her podcast “Ignite Your Purpose.” Karem believes our story is
    someone else’s story and what better way to be inspired and take a step forward. Her Podcast is available in all platforms. She is also a Global Member of a woman’s international organization called FEMCITY and a board member for the Miami & Palm Beach Chapters.
