  • Are you Over-Scheduled?

    25/04/2018 Duración: 59min

    There is just not enough time to save the world… Women, you amaze me. You accomplish so much every day (that you probably get very little credit for) and you just keep raising the bar higher and higher! But are you fulfilled? You have collectively aimed into the stratosphere to be the most creative and dynamic leaders, the best parents with all the answers, daily life-savers to your children, the most understanding and loving partners, the best and most reliable friends…. It’s no wonder sometimes you feel like you could break! Time for an Intervention Overachievers tend to overdo it, and women especially put too much pressure on themselves to do an unrealistic amount of tasks every day. If this sounds like you, it is possible that have set too high expectations on yourself, and you could be making yourself sick. Being a perfectionist and having a terribly demanding mindset is wearing you out! Time to Reclaim Your Sanity! If you are one of the 55 million women struggling with too much to do and not enough

  • The Best and Worst Ways to Cope... with EVERYTHING

    11/04/2018 Duración: 58min

    Seeking Comfort in Outside Conditions Current brain science shows that a lack of consistent emotional nurturance in infancy and childhood, when the brain is still forming, can result in difficulties with self-regulation, causing us to seek comfort and nurturing outside ourselves, often substances. Food. Alcohol. Narcotics. Tobacco. Gamboling… Here’s the good news… History is not our destiny and the brain CAN be re-wired for optimal emotional health. Our addictive bad habits are usually related to something emotional and therefore, we can learn to self-nurture instead of turning to outside substances. New Book Offers a Mindful Approach to Ending Emotional Eating No matter what substance has a hold on you and your emotions, this book will be a game changer for you. When Food is Comfort: Nurture Yourself Mindfully, Rewire Your Brain, and End Emotional Eating, author Julie M. Simon explains that when we eat in the absence of physical hunger cues, routinely choose unhealthy comfort foods, or eat beyond full, som

  • Don't Think. Just Create

    28/03/2018 Duración: 52min

    If love is what you seek, let love be your response. If you are aching for peace and harmony, you are not alone. Recent events has filled the media, workspace and cyber boards with adversity and distress around the world. Being emotionally depleted from such toxic stress can lead to mental instability and physical discomfort… but you don’t have to play that game. The best way to cope is to CREATE. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The worst thing you can do is NOTHING. Activism and creativity have been proven to keep our mental faculties in shape when the world feels uncertain and misplaced. True innovation requires faith in what you cannot see. This is a tricky suggestion because it implies that you need to have a clear and concise vision for your future, like the ability to see into a crystal ball and predict your destiny. Not exactly. A better way to describe it is being able LET GO of what you do not see and knowing that –whatever it is– it will always be in your favor. When you can have this

  • The Powerful Feminine Shift is FINANCIAL

    14/03/2018 Duración: 58min

    When women are empowered with money, they become “difference makers.” Not only do women with money transform their own lives, but also the lives of their children, their families, and their communities. More women are building their own businesses and reaching top corporate levels than ever before… but far fewer than men are earning six and seven figures. Sounds like we need a miracle. In her new book, Money, Manifestation & Miracles: A Guide to Transforming Women’s Relationship with Money, author Meriflor Toneatto zeros in on why this is, and more importantly, she addresses what needs to happen so we can change this state of affairs. This topic arrives at a perfect time, with an important message: “The more income you make the more social impact you can create in transforming lives and changing the world.“ What if… …you had the courage to extend your limits and create the life of your dreams, one that is rich and fulfilling in every way– financially spiritually, and emotionally?

  • Anxious Much?

    07/03/2018 Duración: 01h07min

    Anxiety is the new depression. An estimated 40 million Americans, about 18 percent of the population over the age of 18, struggle with anxiety, including more than half of all American college students. So that should make you feel better. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting 40 million adults age 18 and older, or 18.1 percent of the population every year. Only about a third of those suffering anxiety get treatment, meaning that millions struggle with daily worries and fears without respite. Many of these people cannot afford traditional talk therapy on a regular basis, or have access to medical prescriptions, and need solutions… like YESTERDAY. So what’s the deal? Alarmist news. Threats of war. Division. Recessions. Social media fights. #MeToo triggers. Family. Responsibility. Career. Future. Does it every end? and more importantly… On Today’s Show I am thrilled to introduce you to my phenomenal guest, Corinne Zupko, the author of the new revolutionary b

  • Is leadership as we know it…becoming obsolete?

    21/02/2018 Duración: 59min

    We are living in a complex world. If you haven’t noticed, there is an aversion to the way old types of systems worked in regards to top-down management hierarchies. Men and women of diverse educational and economic background can access information and resources that were unavailable just a decade ago. Anyone with a great idea can cultivate and lead. Command-and-Control forms of leadership are on their way to becoming obsolete… …but learning to SHARE power in an equal and balanced way has become a great challenge. In The Five Roles of a Master Herder: A Revolutionary Model for Socially Intelligent Leadership, best selling author Linda Kohanov addresses the changing role of leadership and offers a new approach that is rooted in equine-based wisdom and the nonverbal leadership skills of ancient herding cultures. On Today’s Show I will be introducing you to the author of The Five Roles of a Master Herder: , Linda Kohanov who has adapted the profound, time-tested “master herder” approach for effective use in

  • YOU have a responsibility to TRUTH

    14/02/2018 Duración: 01h03min

    Finding the Truth Isn’t Easy I haven’t seen the outside of a library in weeks. One of the reasons that I decided to go to graduate school is because I was tired of not knowing the truth. I wanted to learn how to research credible resources and be able to collect accurate and unbiased data. Have we forgotten why we are here? In the last decade alone I have found myself, like so many of you, in a never-ending and ineffective argument. “Your media source lies. Mine tells the truth.” If we are not operating with the same set of facts, how can we even begin to heal the state of our nation? This argument has become such a widespread epidemic that we have lost the ability to communicate with one another and work through the issues that are most important like the welfare of our planet, our physical and mental health, the ability to educate ourselves, freedom of agency, the ability to earn an honest living, and so much more. Some of us don’t even know what is at stake because we are so misinformed. The rest of

  • How we are going to RE-HUMANIZE and win the war with one another

    07/02/2018 Duración: 01h06min

    A call for Re-HUMANIZATION Time for you to answer it. When technologies and advancements that were originally intended to serve humanity cause us to become BLIND TO HUMANITY, we need to make a commitment to restoring our emotional connection for the sake of human dignity. It’s a top priority. Awareness of Awareness Are we even aware of when we have completely lost ourselves to the DARK SIDE? It all starts when we make a firm decision to GROW…whatever the cost. But here is where it gets tricky: We cannot grow unless we identify the behaviors that need improvement. We cannot identify our behaviors unless we are willing to truly see our shortcomings. And most of us are not. Why should I have to behave with kindness and empathy when everybody else gets to be mean and nasty? Because hate begets hate. And when you do what everyone else is doing, you are part of the problem. And it’s an indication that you are on your way to losing the ability to think for yourself. And you must call upon your courageousnes

  • Healing from Trauma and Awakening Your Body’s Wisdom

    31/01/2018 Duración: 01h02min

    At one level or another, traumatic experiences are a part of any life… From the emotional shock of a parent or peer’s careless words in childhood to intense physical injuries or life-threatening emergencies and assaults….no one’s body is immune to the effects of traumatic events. Not only do these events take a toll on our psyches, in the book Reclaiming Your Body: Healing from Trauma and Awakening to Your Body’s Wisdom (New World Library, June 14, 2017), author Suzanne Scurlock-Durana explains how they they cut us off from the wisdom of our bodies as well. Are you paying attention to the signals your body is sending you? “The body has its own language that is older and more primal than most of us realize,” writes Suzanne. “Most of us are conditioned at a very young age to turn off this inner guidance system of sensation, imagery, and inner knowing. Our priceless body wisdom is getting lost as our culture speeds up and becomes more technology driven. Compounding this issue is the fact that life’s traumas al

  • A Zen Legacy

    24/01/2018 Duración: 13min

    What's in a legacy? We should all hope to raise children who can see expansive meaning in the contributions we have made in our lives. Often the best way to interpret our life's work is through the insights that one has into our personal journeys. Just another reason to keep on writing. Letters can tell us so much. Today, we will be getting deep inside the inner-workings of Alan Watts, widely known as the philosopher who first popularized Zen Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies for the counterculture of the 1960s. The brand new, never before published book The Collected Letters of Alan Watts is a treasure trove of letters that was discovered and lovingly curated by his first born children, Joan and Anne Watts. The book begins with letters Watts wrote home from boarding school as a teenager, highlighting his flowering interest in Zen Buddhism. As Watts comes into his own, foregoing traditional education to create his own "self imposed university" and eventually leaving the priesthood, he corresponds wit

  • What does a woman do when she loses everything?

    17/01/2018 Duración: 01h02min

    I met Dr. Carol Soloway on a speaking tour last year. We were both on an author’s speaker panel at the San Diego Women’s museum. My first impression of her was that she was a spunky firecracker and she instantly felt like family. You never would have guessed that this positively spirited and joyful woman had endured several miserable marriages and battled cancer. After losing everything we as women hold dear—husband, children, self-worth—she overcame harrowing obstacles and built a seven-figure chiropractic practice. If you’ve ever doubted yourself, wondered whether you could make it, or thought you weren’t worthy of success, you must come to hear her story. You will leave today’s show empowered! On Today’s ShowDr. Carol Soloway will be joining me to talk about her fiction novel: SEX HAPPENS, which strongly parallels the story of her own life, addresses how women cope with loss and trauma, and strongly asks the controversial question, “What is our value if we are not a mother or a wife?” Carol will also

  • Your year deserves a new story!

    10/01/2018 Duración: 01h06min

    Welcome to the next year of your life! Every single year we say the same thing: “THIS is going to be my year. I can FEEL it!” And then we look back and categorize them into good years vs. the bad years depending on if things went our way. We are victims to our experiences whether we are satisfied with them or not… because we continue to give away our power. Not this year. The best way to ensure that you have an amazing year… is to rewrite your story and change your paradigms. Check out these true inspirations: ❤︎ A veteran nearly drinks himself to death before writing a book that captures the horror of living through a war. The writing helps him turn his life around. ❤︎ A young mother who learns she has stage four cancer as she holds her newborn asks the author to help her write her story before she dies. She starts a blog, writes her memoir, and survives. ❤︎ A beautiful woman carries twenty years of rage inside until she begins to write and share poems revealing her brutal rape. Her writing transforms

  • So you want to be an activist?

    13/12/2017 Duración: 01h02min

    “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ― Anne Frank Social Change is Everywhere. I spent ten years advocating for parents and small business leaders. We set out to give Corporate America a run for their money, and we did just that. Yay, us. In the last 12 months I have shifted my advocacy efforts again. I know that I am not the only one who has felt compelled to use my voice for social change. Look around and you’ll see that this modern-day activism is more than a trend. It’s a paradigm shift. We are living in a transformation of astronomical proportions. All it takes to become an activist is passion, knowledge and a desire to help bring about change. Identify your gifts and talents that will open the space for new growth. The nation is undergoing a major overhaul and now more than ever there is a need for activists, change makers and social advocates. Positive engagement has impact. Your voice matters. I ask myself every day, “How can I be bet

  • Do you ever feel like a broken record?

    06/12/2017 Duración: 01h07min

    “I can’t believe this is happening to me… AGAIN” If you have ever heard yourself say something like this, chances are you have gotten yourself stuck under a set of beliefs that are no longer serving you. Many of us feel like we are just riding around on the same merry-go-round. It’s not just the feeling of running your voice and feeling unheard. It could also be that you are experiencing the the same disappointing results over and over again. All of our experiences have value, but when the same patterns keep recurring, it is very possible that you are still holding on to some limiting beliefs that are holding you back. How does this happen? You are no longer in alignment. When we’ve lived for awhile, we begin to believe things based on the experiences we have. Once we have a solid belief about something, certain experiences will naturally show up to confirm and solidify these beliefs…even if they aren’t true. The discomfort you feel when these undesirable situations repeat themselves? That’s what contrast

  • Woke Men and Daddy Drinks

    29/11/2017 Duración: 01h02min

    This is what happens when six actors in Hollywood, give up late night drinks after rehearsal and decide to become fathers. These guys are not experts in fatherhood. Not by a long shot.But somehow they are getting through it… as former drinking buddies do. Their secret? Alcohol, lots of talk about poop and… an ongoing thread on instant messenger. Six dads share an instant messenger thread to share advice, tears, and dirty jokes as they help each other navigate the joyful insanity of fatherhood. One very, very late night, in a state of panic, a new dad reaches out to five of his buddies via instant messenger to ask for advice on being a father. What results is a nonstop stream of consciousness as the Daddy Drinks daddies overshare, gripe, grouse, complain, and offer questionable guidance to one another on how to keep their kids alive and their marriages intact. Daddy Drinks is the real transcript lifted from that messenger thread that shines a comedic light on the idea that almost any man can be a father—bu

  • Growing Pains are the Greatest Tests of Our Lives!

    22/11/2017 Duración: 01h06min

    If you are feeling torn these days… you aren’t alone. Every day it seems, we are being presented with a new sexual allegation of a public figure, and many of us have become especially challenged with how to process it all. Some women are being triggered with massive PTSD while others are traumatized to learn that someone they’ve admired has a history of abusive behavior. And then there is all the vitriol and confrontation. People everywhere are heated. We’d love to be able to turn it all off and pretend it isn’t happening. We’d love to blame someone for this experience. We shouldn’t be forced to go through any of this. Haven’t we been through enough for one year? We are in the test of our lives. How are we supposed to react when we learn that some of our greatest allies for women’s rights and feminism are perpetrators themselves, with a history of abuse towards women? First: Acknowledge how hard this is. None of this is easy, and you are NOT WRONG for how you may be feeling. Honoring yourself is more impo

  • How to push on… especially when you’ve experienced the absolute WORST.

    15/11/2017 Duración: 01h03min

    Why does trauma break some of us down, and fuel others to be great? Truth? I still suffer from the “imposter complex” sometimes. It’s not present every day, but when it rears its ugly head, I just want to throw in the towel, give up on my biggest dreams, lay down and vow never to get up again. I bet I am a lot like you. I still wonder sometimes if I’ve really accomplished anything worthwhile in my 43 years. I battle a whole bunch of old paradigms that haunt me and keep me from moving forward. I still have days where I cry. Like yesterday. I cried. And cried. And cried. My entire core was in desperate inner conflict. And NO WONDER I was so tormented. My desires and my beliefs were in complete contrast with one another. Ouch. Ouchity Ouch Ouch. If you have ever wanted something SO BAD— like soul-aching desire— where you are being called to show up in a place you KNOW you belong, but you can’t shake the negative self thoughts that make you BELIEVE that you cannot get there… you know how painful it can be.

  • The Power of ONE Woman

    08/11/2017 Duración: 01h01min

    Lately, I have been incredibly inspired and deeply moved by the rising sisterhood in our nation. Through the work I have been doing with RISE: Resist, Inspire, Speak, Empower– An Activist/Leader Bootcamp, my involvement with PUSH: People Unwilling to Sit on their Haunches, and the many forward thinking discussions that I’ve been having with women of influence… I’d say… we’re all going to be okay. =) What kind of DRAMATIC IMPACT will you make? As agents of change, we must be willing to acknowledge and call ourselves out on the thoughts we have that limit our ability to evolve. As women, we were conditioned for so long to judge one another. Historically, we have sized one another up and then used these negative belief patterns to tear each other down. It’s now more important than ever that we pay attention to the belief system that we are operating with and be more conscious of our biases. We are at the precipice of CHANGE. I have never been more clear about where we are headed, and I am absolutely thrilled a

  • Help! Get Me Off This Crazy Ride!

    01/11/2017 Duración: 01h06min

    Is there such a thing as TOO MUCH excitement? Last week I felt my central nervous system shutting down. I was on sensory overload and my brain processes were spinning like a rainbow wheel on a computer that was just given too much information all at once. Was this due to stress? Nope. All of the new information I had received was good— really good. I wanted to celebrate ALL of it— but I didn’t no where to begin. I desperately needed to decompress. Spinning rapidly was only fun as a child. Whirling from too much excitement doesn’t feel so different from whirling from too much trauma… and it can still make you lose your stomach. Cognitive thinkers do not simply move to the side lines. We march in with our explanations and excuses as to why we can’t function properly, not realizing that we have given up our power to someone else or some THING else. We are systemically contributing to our own carousel of paradigms, ad nauseam. Stop the Madness. You can do it. You always get to choose your own personal spiritu

  • The World Needs You to Thrive

    25/10/2017 Duración: 01h11min

    You aren't the only one who suffers when you deny your gifts to the world. Children are watching and learning how to deal with these adverse times by observing our responses and reactions. Have you honored yourself the way you'd hope for them to do for themselves? How many million dollar ideas have you talked yourself out of over the years? Have you fully stepped into your talents? It's important to build confidence in your unique creativity. But more importantly, to use your creative life force to become a cultural arbiter. The elusive nature of self-belief is critical. If you are someone who undervalues your own assets, you are denying the world innovation. Many women leaders underestimate their capabilities and rarely feel competent even when they have peaked at high performance levels. In truth, those who are most accomplished and credentialed struggle with self-worth and assurance all the same. The gap... is in your confidence. You may feel like a victim to circumstances that were painful and traumat
