Discover Your Inner Genius: How To Unlock Your Full Potential
Have you ever felt like you were meant for something great, but you just couldn't figure out what it was? In this video, we're going to help you discover your genius and unleash your full potential.
Imagine waking up every day feeling energized, inspired, and confident in your abilities. That's the power of discovering your genius. In this video, we're going to show you how to uncover your hidden talents and unleash your full potential.
Unlocking your TRUE potential and living with PASSION requires uncovering your Zone of Genius.
Your genius is the intersection of your passion and talent. It's the work you're meant to do that brings you joy, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose.
So, the genius zone is basically the sweet spot where your talents, passions, and values all intersect. It's where you feel most alive and fulfilled, and where you can really shine. Gay Hendricks, who is the author of the "Big Leap" talks about how important it is to find your genius zone and pursue work that aligns with it. He argues that many people never reach their full potential because they're stuck in jobs or situations that don't allow them to use their unique strengths and talents. By figuring out what makes you tick and what you're really good at, you can create a life that is not only successful, but also deeply satisfying and meaningful.
This episode explores the things that HOLD US BACK in life and HOW to identify our true strengths - to live a more passion filled life!!

How To Create A Life You LOVE Part One
Part one on how to create a life you LOVE!
Turning forty was a news flash for me and NOT a good one. I was feeling tired, overweight and less than satisficed with my career. I had so many things to be grateful for which made me feel guilty for wanting more and feeling unhappy with where I was at. At forty, I made a decision to make changes and it eventually led to me becoming a life and health coach. It has taken me 9 years for this all to come to fruition even though I started my business in the end of 2018. What I learned along the way, I hope to help you create much faster and with less starts and stops, and misguided detours. Becoming a coach has helped me not only create better awareness in my won life and create more fulfillment - BUT also a process for helping others do the same. In this episode, I share the first part of creating change by identifying what it is in fact that you are actually not-happy with in life. On the journey of creating a life you absolutely freaking LOVE -you need to first evaluate all the areas of life and decide which ones need changing and why. So, welcome to part one - How To Create a Life You LOVE!

Accepting Your Way To Permanent Weight Loss
The Mindset of healthy weight loss:
2 Mindset blocks that require acceptance to move forward in a healthy way...
People often look for the perfect diet, the perfect exercise plan or want to just be given the steps for weight loss. In reality, these can all work or not work, but one thing that must happen for permanent weight loss is accepting yourself and coming from a place of self-love. When find emotions too painful to look at, we deny them. Denial doesn't get rid of the emotions, but we often turn to food to help "numb" out what we do not want to feel.
When we are overly critical of ourselves, our bodies and come from a place of self-loathing - we want to hate ourselves thin as a way to be motivated. Our bodies, our results will always reflect how we feel on the inside whether we are living in negativity or denying it exists.
To move forward we must be honest with ourselves and practice loving, compassion. We open to the imperfect nature we all exist as...

Coaching versus consulting - What is the difference?
In this episode I help to clarify the role of a coach versus a consultant.....There are a lot of people out there calling themselves "coaches" because it seems trendy and marketable. But are they really providing coaching? And what is the difference? Experts out there claiming to be coaches and saying only qualified experts CAN be coaches is wrong, in my opinion....In fact they probably do not know what coaching REALLY is. So, let's discuss.
A Holistic Approach To Autoimmune Disorders
Autoimmune disorders are on the rise. Why is that? Are we doomed to succumb to their debilitating affects? In this podcast, I help to unravel the confusion about Autoimmune disorders and offer a unique perspective on how to approach these diseases. Whether you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder or have questionable symptoms that you take to your health care provider, the information in this podcast may help empower you to ask more questions and consider a holistic approach to help your body recover.
Stress seems to be the underlying trigger that gets the immune system attacking it's own body tissues - whether it is environmental, nutritional, physical, emotional or the body's ability to detoxify. Listen to this podcast for some ideas on how to identify triggers and reduce possible triggers.
Mentioned in this episode is the idea that high blood sugar levels and insulin create inflammation and can be a possible "trigger" - you can start monitoring your blood sugar levels by using a CGM (continuous glucose monitor).

How To Help Your Brain Recover From Brain Fog
What is Brain fog? Brain fog can leave you feeling spaced out, like your walking through a maze. It can make you distractible, irritable and fatigued. Brain fog has many symptoms, but is not a medical diagnosis -despite it being fairly common in women during menopause and after covid19 infections. It can be scary, frustrating and isolating when you feel your brain is not working optimally and can get in the way of fully participating in your life.
So, in this podcast episode, I discuss what the literature is saying about what is brain fog, what causes it and how to support brain fog recovery.
Check out this resource for all the details and ideas to help you support recovery from "Brain Fog": Brain Fog Resources
