Episode 228: What Does It Mean To Ignite Your Soul With Laurie Wright

abundance mindset May 29, 2022

Today I have no guest interview because I have an important topic I want to talk about - what it means to be ignited. It’s top of mind because I have a free training on this very subject coming up in a week, and it might just be the right next step for anyone who listens to this episode and feels unignited.

  • the definition of ignited
  • real life examples of what it feels like when you aren’t ignited
  • what I’ve learned about the subject 
  • what to know if you’re feeling unignited 

Why is it that so many of us feel guilty for wanting more?  There is nothing wrong with wanting more and wanting to feel more excitement in your life. It’s time to make getting that internal wick lit your #1 priority!

If you’d like to review the words I shared on the episode, I’ve included them here as follows:

Anxious, Average, Ambivalent, Annoyed, Apathetic, Ambiguous, Bored, Beaten, Blah, Behind, Busy, Burned Out, Challenged, Confused Chaotic,...

abundance mindset Jan 30, 2022

Since today the doors are opening for the Second Half S.P.A.R.K. School™ for the first time in 8 months, I wanted to share how this one-of-a-kind program came to be and why I feel it's one of the reasons I'm here - why I believe it's one of the agreements I made when I promised my creator that I'd come here, learn new lessons, share my "gifts" with others, and leave the world a better place in doing so.

I talk about:

how I took the long and winding road to finally figure this out,

The 2 things that fast-tracked my transformation, and

Episode 181: Best of: Discover the Real You Through Personality Typing with Alex Paulos

abundance career mindset Jan 02, 2022

Today I'm re-publishing one of my most popular episodes from October of 2020 because I think it's a great way to start out the year - knowing that our best life will only be lived from a place of authenticity, from who we were born to be.

In this episode I interview Alex Paulos, a personality expert and leadership coach and author of the Recognizing People, who I've gotten to know quite well since this interview was first recorded. In fact I just finished a week of 1 on 1 training with him, spending quality time learning his method.

It was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life as I learned I have a gift of reading people that has been untapped until now. No wonder I've been fascinated with Alex's work! HINT: Let your interests be a sign that lead you to your untapped gifts.

Here's a little a background on Alex and what he does...

Alex has “cracked the code” into providing genetically-based personality assessments based on his intuitive system of...

Episode 179: My Year In Review: 5 Things I Learned (or Confirmed)

abundance mindset Dec 26, 2021

No guest this week as I want to finish the year with a look back at the things I've learned, or that I knew theoretically but confirmed through experience!

I always like to look back because I've found the lessons that help me most are behind me, and in my past, I've been guilty of rushing forward without taking pause and reflecting on the lessons. And this year, I thought I'd do my reflecting with you!

It's a practice I preach and teach, and I've done it every month for the past 2.5 years. Doing the documenting as the year progresses certainly makes the annual reflecting process easier!

I'd love this episode to inspire you to think about the lessons you've learned in 2021. Are there any parallels in your life to the five I talked about?

  • Did you gain new knowledge? If so, what did you learn and how has the gaining of that knowledge helped you?
  • Have you been intentional in your actions? Are you closer to the results you desire?
  • Are you where you expected to be when you were looking...

My guest this week is Jackie Wheeler Wiebe, a longtime homeschooling mom & the founder of HomeSchool ThinkTank. who strives to connect homeschool families with one another and provide the resources and inspiration they need.  

Her purpose path began quite unexpectedly, as it often does, when she took action to help someone else - her 13-year old daughter! Her daughter wanted to write a book so Jackie decided SHE would start writing a book to learn about the self-publishing process so she could help her daughter publish her novel when she was ready. 

When she thought about what her book should be about, she turned to what she knew and that was homeschooling. This process led her to think about the challenges she had as a homeschooling mom and come up with ideas to solve those problems.

An internal spark was lit, and as she took action, her path and potential purpose became more and more clear. Once she committed to this new path and doing the work she was meant to...
