Episode 312: Finally Finding Her Voice After Being Raised in a Cult, with Tiphany Kane

mindset Mar 21, 2023

Today's guest is Tiphany Kane, who I refer to as a Podcasting Dynamo, because she has not just one but THREE podcasts! I asked her to be on the show because she's a great role model of living a sparked second half, as well as a fantastic example of how you can find your way to a more passionate existence in spite of the hardships or lack of support you may have.

Tiphany has certainly made up for lost time, creating her own company, KaSa Media Productions which allows her to bring her passion for the art of the spoken word to people who need help finding their voice.

She's a coach, public speaker, podcast producer, videography director and is the Executive Director of Sonic Bloom Podcast Awards. Tiphany also hosts the Radical Audacity in Love & Life, Diet Riot Sweat Repeat, and Mastering the Podcaster Mindset podcasts. 

"You are just too passionate." were the words she heard from a supervisor explaining why she was not selected for a promotion she was qualified for....

Episode 310: Why You Might Be Failing At Your Goals

mindset Mar 14, 2023

What if there was one simple thing you could do, and it was a pretty quick exercise, that would almost guarantee you'd stop failing, or giving up, on the goals you've been setting? Something that would stop you from feeling like you are slogging through quicksand?

And what if this exercise would not only turn on your internal motivation switch, it would get you aligned with your authentic self - the real version of you I talked about in last week's episodes?

Is that something you'd be interested in learning more about?

If it is, you'll love today's episode in which I talk about the #1 reason that most people are failing at their goals and how this might be an indication that you have the wrong goals.

I also share how you can remedy this problem before you go to bed tonight. In fact, it's something everyone needs to do ASAP. And guess what, it's something I didn't do until I was 60 years old.   But once I did it, it was a goal game changer!!! 

If you realize this...

Episode 308: How Personality Tests Can Harm You

mindset Mar 07, 2023

Who doesn't love a great personality test?! I know I love learning more about myself! But here's the thing... Your results might be wrong!!!

Yep! That's right! You could be getting misinformation about yourself!

What I've learned, as I've gained a lot of knowledge in this field over the past 3 years, is that over 70% of the population is getting incorrect results because they are not in alignment with who they were born to be.

Instead the majority of us are navigating around life trying to adapt who we are to meet society's expectations and when we do that, we end up denying our "inborn" nature and fall into misalignment.

So if you are not in true alignment, do you think when you take a personality test, you'll answer questions based on who you were born to be? Heck no! Your results will be based on who you THINK you are - who you've chosen to be, and not who you truly are.

And because these results could lead you down the totally wrong path, I thought this was an important topic...

abundance mindset Feb 08, 2023

Today I'm chatting with two more of my amazing students, Kim Diede and Gail Johnson, who each share how stepping into their most authentic selves to live from a place of deep purpose has changed their lives. They are both doing incredible things and making an impact in the world by doing what they love. 

Kim, is a mom of 3 and a grandma of 1, who worked in banking at a job that was clearly not what she was brought here to do. You can hear her entire back story in Episode 7 when I first interviewed her on my podcast and before she ever entered The Second Half SPARK School.

She shares how working with me gave her a new perspective about how her fear of the unknown - even though she had discovered her purpose and it was lighting her up - was keeping her trapped in a job and depriving the world of the books she hadn't yet written. 

Gail, who is a medium, was denying her real gifts too. She didn't think she had what it took to do what she really wanted to do. But...
