    Living After Loss: Angela Drake

    This story is both heart wrenching and inspirational.

    Angela Drake is an advocate, self care warrior, a "BA" businesswoman, and a mom who lost her daughter to a battle with mental health. We talk about sitting in the suck, accepting help, how to show up when others experience tremendous loss, and taking care of yourself.

    This conversation made me laugh, cry, and want to start a business with Angela!

    Unbreakable: Audrey Bright

    Would you consider yourself an empath? Do you love an empath? Or maybe you don’t understand empaths. Either way, this episode’s for you. 

    I welcomed Audrey Bright—a coordinator, aka “mama bear”, of a community leadership program, she’s an up and coming public speaker, partner to her husband, and lead volunteer within her church. 
    Audrey’s story reveals life through the eyes of an empath. With unwavering passion for serving others, she discusses how empathy is an incredible gift but empathy without boundaries can lead to a self-destructive lifestyle. Audrey is learning to take control, set boundaries, and stay open to what’s next.

    Divorce to Friendship: Holly Hoffman

    Divorce to Friendship: Holly Hoffman

    Ms. Holly Hoffman was in the studio today and the energy level in here tripled! Her joyous spirit is contagious and it’s not hard to understand why she is a nationally renowned inspirational speaker. 

    Besides being a speaker, Holly was a reality TV star on Survivor: Nicaragua Season 21. She’s an author, mom, and a proud grandma.

    In this episode, Holly won’t be talking about her typical topic. 

    For the first time ever, she’s going to share publicly, her difficult experience with divorce. Holly hopes her story of transformational change will help normalize talking openly about mental health, remind those struggling with a similar situation to focus on what they can control, and provide hope that life after divorce can be positive.

    I believe it’s safe to say that Holly has gone from being a Survivor to a thriver! 

    So grab a glass, relax and get ready for Holly’s Whine to Wisdom.
