Episode #255 - How to believe in yourself...
Joining me today is Author, speaker, and mentor Trish Springsteen!
So how did I get from that shy Trish who was not at all confident, who would avoid speaking, who had potential but didn’t have the confidence to fulfill that potential. I had and still have a very supportive family – who told me you can do anything you want, be anything – go for it. Those are great words – only they are just words if you don’t believe in those words and that was me – no confidence, no self-belief. It was not until I had a mentor who pushed me, challenged me, believed in me, and helped me to believe in myself that I grew into who I am and am comfortable with who I am. That is why I love mentoring, love finding ways to make it easy for clients to find you, why I love working with introverts and those who are letting their mindset and limiting beliefs stop them from being all that they can be.

Episode #253 - How to face the pain that you are hiding from...
Joining the show today is Angela Legh!
I lived through much adversity; and as it is said, what didn't kill me made me stronger. I had an abusive, alcoholic father whose behavior had a major impact on my life. Based on his behavior, my young mind decided that rage was an emotion no one should feel. My judgment of anyone who became enraged did not serve me well in my first marriage, nor in my life.
A wildfire destroyed our home . . . that was the catalyst for significant change in my life. Over 12 months, I lost my home to fire, left my marriage, quit my job, and moved across the world. During this journey, I discovered many tools for overcoming adversity and achieving emotional balance.

I take a spirit, mind-body approach to help women redefine themselves to live an extraordinary bonus life filled with peace, joy, gratitude, self-love, and celebration.
My approach to healing from divorce isn’t like anything else you will find. How do I know? Because it’s the program I needed when I was where you are now, and it wasn’t anywhere to be found.
My divorce left me filled with anxiety and in a state of depression. I went looking for help but it was all so scattered it was tough to find what I really needed.
I went on a quest to learn about how to heal from what I was experiencing. The result was a path that took me from that empty place to one of joy, freedom, and peace.
That’s what I want for you. That’s what Intentionally Fabulous is all about.

Episode #246 - How Cactus became the new leather...
Joining the show is Renia Pruchnicki, Founder of Truth Belts!
I started Truth in 2001. I made belts from my apartment in downtown Toronto.
I was determined to create a life I loved and at the same time, I wanted to do something that would make a difference to our planet.
Since I had no experience with leather, I made my belts out of what I like to call ‘Genuine Non-Leather’.
I thought it was a clever phrase and decided to stamp all of my ‘leather-look’ belts with this phrase on the back. Funny!
Renia Starting Truth Belts
Over the years, as my approach to design has developed, my personal interests and lifestyle choices have also evolved – more and more, they aligned with and reinforce the innate philosophy of Truth.
I strongly believe as a business owner I can make choices that make a difference to our planet.
Mother nature needs our help right now. Nature is here to support humans and it seems like all we have done is abuse and exploit her to fulfill our own selfish desires. Us humans are currently behaving in a way no animal would ever treat their herd, flock, pod, or swarm.
We have forgotten we are part of nature. That’s why I choose to have my products made in Canada and to use animal-friendly materials.

Joining the show is Rachel Grant! In her words...
I want to put a stop to survivors of abuse feeling broken, unfixable, and absolutely frustrated because it seems nothing they do is helping. Honestly, it really pisses me off when survivors are not able to have the lives and relationships they deserve. Whenever I hear stories of survivors giving up, falling deeper and deeper into despair, or worse, being further traumatized by people who are supposed to help, I get so upset. It also reminds me of my past and how excruciating life was for twenty-plus years.
I was definitely convinced that there was no way out of the pain, constant instability, and feeling of worthlessness. It sucked, but I found a way out and I would love to support you in doing that as well.

Episode #221 - Is it time for a career change?
My name is Jane Ferré and in 2017 I experienced redundancy twice in one year.
In March, I took voluntary redundancy from my role as Head of Talent for British Airways, before I was Headhunted by LEON Restaurants as their first Head of Training.
8 months later that role was made redundant and my last day was the beginning of December, “Merry Christmas”!
Did I sit on the sofa in my pyjamas binge watching Netflix, drinking red wine and eating Giant Chocolate Buttons? Of course I did, it was nearly Christmas, no one would be hiring now and I had lots of parties to go to – what was the point?
Gone was the security of having a (very good) salary land in my bank account every month.
Gone was the kudos of my job title.
Gone were my plans for a Merry Christmas (we cancelled our plans, didn’t buy any presents and stayed home).
The second time was harder than the first, I didn’t have the support network that was in place the first time. As I had only been with the business for 8 months, I was paid my notice period of one month’s salary and I had very limited savings.
When 2018 rolled around, I put down the wine, got off the sofa and dug out my notebooks that contained everything I had learned during my first redundancy. If I did not have this to fall back on, I’m not sure I would have got back on my feet so quickly.
I’ve learned a lot during this time, I have developed a range of techniques to make decisions about what was next for me, all of which I share with my clients as we work together.
In less than a year, I built a successful business and now spend my days working with my amazing clients to help them to achieve their targets. I LOVE it.

Episode #208 - How to succeed when life makes it tough
Hayk owns and operates a thriving insurance and construction business that he built from scratch. With the years of coaching and developing his top producing teams, he has developed great joy in coaching and consulting other business owners, professionals, aspirants and team members on replicable sales systems, processes of entrepreneurship and personal development.
Hayk brings a unique approach to the definition of success. His inspirational story of perseverance despite the immense odds, has helped him inspire others to grow and achieve the success they’ve longed for.
Hayk Tadevosyan immigrated to United States at only 13 years of age with his father, having only a few hundred US dollars in their pockets. Since it was financially impossible to bring the entire family to the United States, his mother, sister and brother had to stay in Armenia, a former Soviet Republic, resulting in a 7 year separation of the family.
While the father and son duo slept on roll up mattresses and couches in rooming houses, they often went hungry with only Hayk’s provided school lunch available, to feed them both. Hayk developed an unusual fear of new places from all the relocating they did during his childhood years. Moving from city to city, state to state to find work was unavoidable given the circumstances, as it was not an option to skip sending money to their family in Armenia.
From humble beginnings in Armenia, where he lived without the luxury of running water or electricity, often going hungry, to now a successful businessman – Hayk has been described by many as a modern example of the American dream in action.

Joining the show is Melody Olander!
"when I got diagnosed, I was probably in the “best shape” of my life. I was at the gym almost every day & eating a well-balanced diet. In fact, this led doctors to continually assert that I “was fine” and attribute my symptoms to my imagination or stress.
(Dear Drs. everywhere, please change “there’s nothing wrong!” to “I couldn’t find what is wrong”)
as many people know, I was diagnosed shortly thereafter with a rare brain disease. Though I’ve had treatments in the past, there is no cure. The diagnosis changed my life, and unlike some people with disabilities, you really wouldn’t know from looking at me.
I hope stories like mine raise more awareness around disabilities, and challenge how people think of individuals who live with disabilities.
Sick people deserve to pursue joy & not be held down by a narrative that society holds about what being sick is supposed to look like."

Episode #204 - The truth about network marketing
Joining the show is Brandy Shaver!
Nate and I had had enough!
I owned my own salon and was chasing six kiddos around.
Yep! I said six.. 17 all the way to a 1 year old.
My husband Nathan was working full time in the coal mining industry, also running a pest control business his grandfather started and hauling crude oil on the weekends.
We were so tired of working and never seeing our kids, not to mention one another.
We were making great money but it was never enough.. linear income wasn’t cutting it for us.
We knew that if something didn’t change Nate was going to kill over dead.

Insert that call none of us ever wanted to get. Network Marketing.
I was polite (because it was my mother in-law and she was standing in my doorway). I honestly didn’t understand the industry at all.
I was ignorant like a lot of people.
However, when we sat down and really took a look at what was being taught, we knew this was our ticket to freedom.
I had been looking for a way of creating residual income and I found it.
I was so excited, in our first 12 hours we had our initial investment back.
In our first 6 months we made and extra twenty thousand dollars.
Things were going so well we thought we would be at the top of the company in a few short years, boy we were dead wrong.
My business fell apart, everyone we had enrolled quit except one personal.
I wasn’t able to duplicate what we were doing.
I went back to the beginning and started over.
Even my sponsor quit!
I had told everyone in my whole town what we were doing and there was no way I was giving up I am not a quitter!.. I may be a bit bull headed. Ha Ha!
I continued to build old school, prospecting everyone that moved and throwing whatever we could at the wall hoping someone would stick.
We created a small team that were active and growing.
I began to dig, read books, listening to audios, search online, learning from people that had what I wanted.
I discovered Attraction Marketing!

Hello, I'm Trish Bennet, founder of Build Yourself Back Up. I share my personal journey of challenges, heartbreak and loss of self, so that I can support and encourage others who have experienced their own pain and are ready to build themselves back up. I've spent most of my life wearing an invisible mask that hid the true pain that was buried inside my mind, body and soul. After my Spiritual Awakening and the unravelling of my life, I spent many years healing the pains of the past. My heartbreaking life lessons led me to forgive myself and others. Step by step, I was able to build myself back up and create a life that is filled with success, love and opportunities. Through my work and passion for positive change I teach others that, at any point in time you can make changes and become the person you envision. The challenges and life lessons I had to overcome were depression, limiting beliefs, divorce, becoming a single mom, co-parenting, poor self-image and self-esteem, and more. By speaking about my life lessons and experiences, I help and encourage others to know they are not alone and show that there's always a better path.

Episode #199 - Helping entrepreneurs live freedom filled lives by leveraging social media
Cari Higham is a sought-after Speaker, Trainer, and Influence Marketing Strategist that calls Utah home with her husband, Whit, and their three children.
Jumping into network marketing in 2013, she quickly learned that there’s a lot more to entrepreneurship than just talking to your friends and family and hoping your business will grow.
Relying on traditional business-building strategies to connect with new people, she struggled for over 2 years to grow her team, driving all over the western half of the United States, prospecting people to join her and buy her products.
Living in her mother-in-law’s basement because she and Whit couldn’t afford rent while trying to grow their team, she almost quit entrepreneurship all together multiple times. Frustrated by her failing business that was producing less than $100 a month, she put her family further and further into debt as she put all her expenses on credit cards.
It wasn’t until she discovered an influence marketing strategy that allowed her to grow a targeted audience through social media and enroll people by the masses, that she started finding success in early 2016.
This strategy shot her income to multiple 6-figures less than 11 months later, which gave her the freedom to move out of the basement, get out of debt and retire Whit from his corporate job.

As Remi grew more confident in her skills, she realized that she loved what she was doing.
She realized that this was something she was passionate about. Working under someone else no longer felt right for her, so she took a leap of faith and decided to start her own show, which she called Remi TV.

Episode #193 - You owe it to yourself to be healthy
Jane Barlow Christensen comes from a background in the health, fitness, and wellness industry. Her journey as a professional began in 1979, when she began teaching group fitness classes. As the years went by, Jane got into gym membership sales and eventually managed a 24 Hour Fitness location in the Salt Lake Valley, all the while still teaching aerobics (mostly step classes). Over this time, Jane developed a dream to open her own gym, and in 1998 she made that dream a reality, partnering with her little sister and cutting the ribbon for Midvale Athletic Club. They had taken the old firehouse and turned into a brand new gym. Although the gym did not turn out to be a profitable endevour and eventually closed, Jane and her sister gained an incredible amount of wisdom and experience. After a brief return to her old gym management role, she had had enough and decided to resurrect her late father's once-thriving herbal tincture business. In 2001, Barlow Herbal Specialties was born. Jane rebuilt the company at a steady pace and now BHS is a powerhouse player in the herbal supplement industry. Dr. Max Barlow, her father, developed some extraordinarily powerful and effective formulas, many of which BHS carries on to this day. Jane has developed many tinctures, capule products, and skin care products to add to her father's repertoire and has built an extremely loyal following. Jane currently employs 6 people, including her two sons!
