    Finding Passion and Purpose within Rapid Change the McDonald’s Way - with Stacy Vorhees

    Can you see opportunity and purpose within the changes that are taking place? My next guest is an inspirational example of turning crisis into connection and pain points into purpose. Her name is Stacy Vorhees, and she’s the owner/operator of four McDonald’s restaurants. Whatever you thought about McDonald’s going into this podcast, Stacy is going to give you a new perspective on why their business model is such a success (especially in the midst of the pandemic), and how you can embrace passion and purpose in your own life and business too.

    Back to School 2020: The Power of School Choice in a Pandemic and Beyond - with Dr. Barbara Duncan and Liz Dreckman

    Back to School 2020: The Power of School Choice in a Pandemic and Beyond - with Dr. Barbara Duncan and Liz Dreckman

    How do we support teachers, protect students and provide quality education as the pandemic and back-to-school season collide? Today’s guests are going to help answer those questions. I’m interviewing Liz Dreckman and Dr. Barbara Duncan of School Choice Arizona, an organization that helps families find the best educational options for their kids and supports a network of over 450 schools. They’re sharing what we can expect for the upcoming school year, how we can better equip our families for remote learning, and what we need to know if our kids go back to the classroom. I’ve been in awe of Liz and Barbara’s hearts for children and the impact they’ve made since I’ve spoken at School Choice events for the past couple of years, and I’m so excited for you to hear their insights.

    My Teenagers' Perspective on Quarantine, Online Learning and COVID-19

    My Teenagers' Perspective on Quarantine, Online Learning and COVID-19

    Well, this is a first! On today’s episode, I’m interviewing my three teenagers: Noah, who’s in college and Mirabelle and Oliver who are in high school. You'll get to hear their take on online learning, what it was like to be quarantined as a family for three months, and how they’re processing the pandemic. I learned some new things by sitting down to talk to them—what the three positives and negatives were of quarantine, what they really thought of online learning, and what they’re most looking forward to doing outside the house. My hope is that this episode will inspire you with questions to ask your friends and family members and give you insight into a teen’s experience of COVID-19.
