How I Manifested the Loss of Millions of Dollars (Yes! Ugh!)

How I Manifested the Loss of Millions of Dollars (Yes! Ugh!)

August 15, 2020

​EP49: In this episode I get super vulnerable and share how I manifested the loss of millions of dollars in stock options and how embarrassed and ashamed I used to be from my mishandling of money until I uncovered the greater lesson from it.

In my later years, as I've gained a deeper understanding of the Universal Laws, and in particular, the Law of Attraction and how we can not only manifest what we want into our life,  but also what we don't want.

I've also learned that our relationship with money is just another set of beliefs that are running on auto pilot and have been following us around since childhood, and if we don't get to the root of them and understand how they are impacting our life, then we will never conquer our money "problems." They will follow us everywhere we go.

So here is my true story of how my beliefs around money and the unexpected consequences of living a life out of alignment with what my soul truly desired impacted me in a deep way, AND what I'm doing now to improve my relationship with money.

Here are links to the books I mentioned in the episode:

"Dollars Flow Easily To Me" by Richard Dotts: https://amzn.to/2PZfiFu

"A Happy Pocket Full of Money" by D. C. Gikandi: https://amzn.to/3ar27a5

"Get Rich Lucky Bitch! Release Your Money Blocks and Live a First-Class Life: By Denise Duffield-Thomas: https://amzn.to/2PW0Z4K​

How Her Quest to Become a Mom Led To Amazing and Unexpected Opportunities

How Her Quest to Become a Mom Led To Amazing and Unexpected Opportunities

August 10, 2020

EP48: Have you ever wanted something so bad and through the process of going after that dream, an even better dream than you imagined unfolded for you?

 

Well, THAT is what happened to my guest, Liz Melville. She had an all-consuming job and got to the point where she felt that if she wanted to become a mom, she had to quit.

 

When Liz found herself marrying later in life and unable to  get pregnant, she knew something had to give so she chose to make having a baby, her #1 priority. As she faced an unknown road ahead with infertility, she took advantage of an "exit" package when her company restructured and went ALL IN with IVF treatments.

 

During this time she dabbled a bit as an entrepreneur with a seemingly, "knowing" mentality that she was meant for bigger & better things and that she would figure it out.

 

Once she became a mom, her focus became figuring out a way to be with her son while also finding a way to build a business from home.. So her goal shifted from wanting to become a mom to being the best and most present mom which meant creating a new income stream that would allow her to do that.

 

Today she is the 51 year old mom of a 9 year son and has the freedom to do whatever she wants whenever she wants. She is living the dream life she imagined as she was going thru those difficult infertility treatments and now gets to focus on her family while running a very successful home-based business.

 

Liz is a highly regarded Facebook ads and Launch strategist, with over 9 years experience in promoting brands and businesses online. She's done major deals, has clientele that includes some of the biggest names on Facebook, and handles multi-seven figure campaigns, something she never thought possible!

 

Listen as she shares her story about how she turned her skills and knowledge into a career that perfectly fits her dream lifestyle.

#ThursdayThoughts: Using Oracle Cards To Inspire Today’s Topic Of Community

#ThursdayThoughts: Using Oracle Cards To Inspire Today’s Topic Of Community

August 7, 2020

EP47: Today I'm starting a new series I'm calling #ThursdayThoughts and I thought it would be fun to use my Energy Oracle cards to come up with a topic. Since these cards act as intuitive hits for us, I know by using them, the universe will send me great ideas to share with my listeners.

The card that came up for me today is Community which was quite accurate in that I've been super focused in my virtual communities over the past week, both in my mentor's Facebook Group where she was doing free training and then announcing enrollment into her program, and with my group of new students who are going through my Second Half S.P.A.R.K. School.

If you're interested in getting the Oracle card deck that I used today, here is the link to the cards on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3gGIcWP

The guide book that comes with the cards will tell you everything you need to know.

It was really fun to let the universe guide me today so I plan to do this a lot going forward with my #ThursdayThoughts episodes.

Do you use Oracle cards, or are you going to start now that you've heard about them? Shoot me a message on social media and let me know if you're new to them and are going to try them out. I'd love to hear your newbie experience.

Learn How This Lawyer Let Curiosity Lead The Way To A New Career

Learn How This Lawyer Let Curiosity Lead The Way To A New Career

August 3, 2020

EP46: Jennifer Gardner is a trial lawyer and entrepreneur who has owned her own law firm, in Los Angeles, for 25 years, as well as other businesses.

After growing weary of hiring marketing agencies who overpromised and underdelivered “results,” she studied directly with 7-figure online marketers and social media influencers to learn their secrets to success.

She applied what she learned and exploded her business using one “lead magnet,” an automated email sequence and 3 iPhone videos.

She now teaches professionals what to say to get clients using social media, email and videos, and guides them in building lead generation systems that grow their businesses on autopilot so that they don’t blow their kid’s college fund on questionable marketing strategies and they never have to attend another rubber-chicken networking event again.

EP45: I've been floored by all of the great content that Dr. Shannon Irvine is giving away for FREE in her latest video series training called "The Unleashed Entrepreneur." The only thing I don't like is that it's promoted for business success when I know it can be soooo valuable for EVERY PERSON - not just for business owners!!!

Training your brain to work FOR you instead of against you is key for success in any area of your life!

In today's episode, I touch briefly on the 3 growth tactics, Clarify, Erase, and Automate, that she talks about in her free series and how they have helped me in the past few months in my business.

Pursuing Your Passion As A Side Gig? Yes, It is Possible!

Pursuing Your Passion As A Side Gig? Yes, It is Possible!

July 13, 2020

EP42: In this episode of Not Your Average Lives, I'm chatting for a second time with my friend, Kimberly Diede who I first met when she sent me a sweet email about one of my episodes that inspired her.

Since that first episode, Kim has published TWO more books, while still working her full time banking job.

Her midlife transformational story is sure to inspire anyone who has ever had an inkling to write a book. I love her example that your passion can be a side gig. Life is so much better and more fulfilling, as long as you find what you love to do and are able to spend a lot of time doing it..

I'm about to start the 3rd book in her "Celia's Gifts" series. I'm a big fan, after she got me hooked when she sent me "Whispering Pines," the first book in the series, right after our first interview!!!

Learn How this Woman Found Her Authentic and Abundant Self by Listening To Her Higher Being

Learn How this Woman Found Her Authentic and Abundant Self by Listening To Her Higher Being

July 6, 2020

EP41: Makhosi Candiss is a naturally gifted individual, specifically in science and math, who has an innate drive to always become the best, especially being a woman of color and of mixed culture. With her inherent gifts and tenacity, she has always been up for a great challenge and soars not just to meet but to exceed perceived societal expectations.

After obtaining Bachelor’s degrees in Business and Marketing, while preparing for medical school, she rose to the top 1% of consultants in a $250 million direct sales company in just 9 months. At the top, her world shattered as she realized that what society defines as success was not fulfilling and something was missing in the big picture. As the voices within her kept growing, her 'higher being', drew her into finding her real and greater purpose.

She decided to harness her unusual gifts and the voice within her and became an Abundance Activator & Authentic African Shaman and she now uses her training to help burned-out, conscious visionaries fulfill their highest potential using mindset, mindfulness & metaphysics mastery. By utilizing a long list of spiritual abilities & her unique Align in 3D Framework, she assists high-achievers to discover their purpose, decode their essence and break through the blocks keeping them from becoming limitless.

In this episode, we talk about a variety of very interesting topics such as Purpose, business, and ancestral DNA! Makhosi's aim is to encourage people to live true to who they really are and not society's definition of success. As what she would say, "abundance is your birth right."

If so, perhaps this episode will give you a few ideas about the various ways you can earn income using the internet!!!

Walking across my family room to my home office is all of the commute I want!!!
