    The issue of holistic health is big enough that you can find over 10,000 books on Amazon about the topic. With a Google search, you can find millions of informative articles with enough varied philosophies to make one’s head spin. Our interview today is with Adrien Cotton who didn’t plan on speaking about perimenopause or menopause as she started out working in government, but that changed. Stay tuned for a fascinating interview approaching holistic health with a focus on prevention, alternative therapies and emotional well-being.
    There are some wonderful takeaways from our conversation including: getting enough sleep and stop counting calories, adopt an abundant mindset. The question Adrien leaves us with is, “If I have the next 40-45 years to do what I really want to do, what would it be?” The answer is what we hope you find though our podcasts and courses!

    280.Media Tools for the 21st Century with Deborah Johnson

    280.Media Tools for the 21st Century with Deborah Johnson

    When one hears the term media tools there is an instantaneous association with technology and that can bring its own slew of fears and hesitancy. However, many media tools are created to make our lives easier, especially as entrepreneurs or a small business. Many tools, especially with the advancement of AI and virtual systems, help us save time and energy, especially with rote tasks. Media tools can range from a broad range of software, platforms and technology designed to create, distribute, analyze and manage various forms of media content.
    In this podcast I will cover some of my favorite media tools for the 21st century as well as some principles for their use and setting up the groundwork for creating systems that work. I usually keep a fairly current list of favorite tools I use on my resource page but do systematically study and implement some of the new tools available. I also cover some of the basic systems I use in my course, A New Way of Doing Business. The tools may change somewhat but the systems are the same. There is no way to cover all that is available in one episode but covering the basics will create a solid foundation for growth.

    278.Invisible Wealth with Greg and Deb

    278.Invisible Wealth with Greg and Deb

    Have you ever felt like there’s more to wealth than just money? In this insightful episode, my husband Greg and I delve into the concept of "invisible wealth," exploring assets that aren’t immediately tangible but hold immense value
    "Invisible wealth" refers to assets or resources that are not immediately apparent or tangible but hold significant value to individuals or societies. While financial wealth is often the most visible form of prosperity, there are several other areas of invisible wealth that are equally important but may go unnoticed. If we only measure dollars, other areas are sacrificed. Greg, my husband, and I focus on some of those areas and how some of them impact our lives.
    From cultural assets and social capital to human capital and health, we discuss how these unseen riches can profoundly impact our lives. As a financial adviser, Greg has seen both ends of the wealth spectrum and shares his wisdom on achieving a balanced life. We touch on the importance of family, the joy of environmental assets like nature, the power of social connections, and the value of lifelong learning. Our goal is to inspire you to measure happiness beyond financial success and to recognize the wealth you have in various life dimensions.
    Recognizing and valuing these forms of invisible wealth is essential for promoting holistic development and sustainable prosperity. While financial wealth is important, it is only one aspect of overall well-being. Investing in social relationships, education, health, environmental conservation, and personal fulfillment enriches lives and strengthens communities in ways that extend beyond monetary measures.
