Connie's quote is by – John F. Kennedy: “Physical Fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic & creative intellectual activity.” There is so much talk about weight loss and exercise everywhere you turn. Which is the right path or option for you? Are you confused or perhaps even overwhelmed with the amount of information that is available? After all we truly live in the information age. We can Googleanything and get a pretty darn good response or idea of how to tackle weight loss and healthy living So why is our nation so out of shape when the answer is literally at our fingertips? Today my guest is Adriana Albritton. Adriana approaches her customers from a holistic approach where she not only addresses their weight and exercise concerns but also includes achieving a healthy mind and healthy environment as part of her customized programs. Adriana Albritton is the Founder of A FIT WELLNESS and FIT N ALL.

Later on, she recognized the awful repercussions that an unbalanced body has on the psyche. Website:  www.fitnall.com Email:  afitwellness@gmail.com

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ William James “Belief creates the actual fact.” Did you know that many of our core beliefs, and how we respond to the world, come from deep inside of us, at our cellular level? What does that even mean? Well, to make things even more complicated, with our belief systems, it has also been proven that we have beliefs in place (may they be positive or negative) that may have been handed down from past generations, through our DNA? This is such a vital topic to explore and investigate because it can help us all navigate and change our paradigm of thinking to create more positive and empowering lives for ourselves. Your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Kate O’Connell.  Tune in as they discuss her new book, “Beyond the Imprint.” Kate is a Child and Family Therapist with a private practice in Charlottesville, VA, addressing the therapeutic needs of children, adolescents, adults and families. The goal of Kate’s ground-breaking book is for the therapist to facilitate a safe, therapeutic experience, one in which the client is able to explore, identify and dissolve imprinting at the cellular level. Kate helps us explore how Quantum physics helps us understand that we can change what is outside of us by simply changing ourselves. I am very excited to explore this topic!

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Susan Barbara Apollon “Spiritual healing is often experienced as a state of harmony, balance, greater well-bing, and joyfulness….” How many of us have had déjà vu? It’s such a weird feeling as if you are reliving a moment from our past (or future) over again. Does this mean we have some form of physic powers or does everyone actually experience some level of seeing or feeling things that perhaps just can't be explained? Instead of guessing or speculating about this topic of psychic ability and spiritual energy, I am excited to have an international expert psychic on the show with us today. Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Elizabeth Joyce. Elizabeth has been psychic since birth and is named one of the World’s Greatest Psychics, as well as America’s Top 100 Psychics in 2014. And we have her on with us today, how exciting! Elizabeth has been profiled in at least twelve books, she is a spiritual healer and gives personal psychic readings worldwide. But wait there’s more. Ms. Joyce is a professional astrologer, spiritual counselor, energy healer, medium, clairvoyant, and teaches the new energies of the Fifth Dimension. Millions of people have witnessed her incredible psychic powers on TV shows such as Unsolved Mysteries, Beyond Chance and The Psychic Detectives, as well as CNN News. A frequent guest on radio shows across the country, Elizabeth appears on Coast to Coast AM, The Shirley MacLaine Hour, and NPR. She has been profiled in Women's Day Magazine, Wall Street Magazine, The National Examiner, The New York Times and other national media.

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Carly Fiorina “If a decision-making process is flawed and dysfunctional, decisions will go awry.” How many decisions do you make in a day? Think about that for a second. We decide what to wear to work, what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus all the other decisions made before, during and after work. What about the big decisions that need to be made. Do I get married, am I marrying the right person for life, what hospital and/or doctor do I take my sick child too. And the list goes on.

Connie's motivational quote today is by ~ Ronald E. Osborn “Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow..” Leaders and business owners are all faced with how to stay focused on our own careers while leading our teams and companies to financial success. It’s a lot of pressure, isn’t it? Where do you begin? With marketing, team building, self-development, shareholder meetings, and the lists goes on. So really…where do we start? I think we may all need help with this prioritization process of what tasks, skills and behaviors we need to work on first, to develop the success we are all seeking. Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Carl Gould.  Carl is a business growth expert who advises organizations on how to get to the next level. He is an entrepreneur who built three multi-million dollar businesses by age 40.

Connie's motivational quote today is by ~ Alexandria Hotmer “If we would just take a moment to look around, we would find that the universe is in constant communication with us.” Do you believe that we are all energy beings and that we transmit vibrational energy into the world. Also, do you agree that all the things around us are energy sources too and they too transmit vibrational energy? Holy smokes! That’s a lot of energy whirling around in our world. Is that why it seems our world has become more angry, show more hatred and overall feels anxious? If we and all the things around us emit energy, how do we control it and create a shift to a positive flow? Today your host. Connie Whitman, speaks with Nancy Yearout.  Nancy is going to help us understand the importance of using easy tools to help us form positive thought patterns and help us shift our energy from overwhelm and anger to one of love and light. Nancy is a spiritual life coach, motivational speaker and author of her new book, Wake Up! The Universe is Speaking to You. Nancy has also enjoyed an extensive corporate career as a sales coordinator with one of the Big Three automakers in Detroit.

Connie's motivational quote today is by, - Mahatma Gandi “Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics does not know what religion is.” You have heard the phrase, “history repeats itself.” If this is the case, then why do we seem to make the same mistakes over and over throughout time? Is there a key strategy we are missing? Instead of guessing about such a complex topic, we have an expert guest who holds a PhD in Religious Studies, and knows about politics and religion’s long history together. David Low holds a MS & PhD in Religious Studies, is an author, former Adjunct Professor of Religion, drug counselor, and former entertainer (juggler) who today does dreamwork, teaches meditation, and speaks on topics about spirituality and religion. After some powerful meditation experiences, Dr. Low traveled extensively and visited different Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Sufi, Jewish, Christian, and Orthodox Muslim groups. An epiphany in 2014 led him to write his first book, Universal Spiritual Philosophy and Practice: an Informal Textbook for Discerning Seekers. His greatest passion is getting people to tune into more profound dimensions of spirituality, at both the personal and political levels.

Connie's motivational quote for today is by ~ Ritu Ghatourey “It only takes a small amount of courage and hope to take control of your life.” What an interesting quote. It uses two powerful words to gain control in our lives: Courage and hope. Life changes are inevitable, aren’t they? We have all experienced the movement from one stage of life to the next. Whether leaving for college, graduating from college, getting your first or fifth job, and to my parents out there, our kids lives moving faster than we would like to admit, where our kids are growing up and leaving the nest. Psychologists describe empty nest syndrome as “a transition period in which many people experience feelings of loneliness or loss.” How do we navigate these uncharted waters as our life stages swiftly pass by? My guest today believes that with every life change there is opportunity knocking. What if there was a clear path to redefining life after such life changes have occurred? And what if that path led to your most joyful life ever? Today, your host, Connie Whitman speaks with Karen Otis. Karen has combined her degrees in Sociology and Architecture to create a guidebook for joyful living that can empower empty nester's and anyone going through a big life transition to create their ideal life experience, starting now. Karen took this common sociological experience and created a building plan for life, just like we have building plans for any physical structure in this world. She calls it: The Architectural Method.  Karen Otis is an architect, life builder and author of the revolutionary new book that uses architectural wisdom to rebuild lives from the ground up—“Be the Architect of Your Life: Design Build, and Start Living a Life Inspired.”  Website:  www.bethearchitectofyourlife.com FREE blueprint at: www.lifeinspiredblueprint.com Book Link:  https://www.amazon.com/Be-Architect-Your-Life-Inspired/dp/1608081761/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499964819&sr=8-1&keywords=be+the+architect+of+your+life

Connie's interesting quote for our interesting topic today is by Frank Ocean. “Maybe it takes a near death experience to feel alive.” Interesting quote, isn’t it? How many of us fear the topic of death? What if death isn’t the end? What if there is more? More and more books are written on near death experiences every day, documenting that there is something after we die. Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Dr. P.M.H. Atwater.  Dr. Atwater is no stranger to near death experiences. In fact, her third book, “A Manual for Developing Humans,” Dr. Atwater was told to write this book during her third near-death experience. This Manual contains the basics for becoming fully human.  The manual includes some basic topics covering all levels of life ─ from how to use your mind, developing and using intuition, understanding color, sex, relationships, children, and rethinking money. To name just a few! Dr. Atwater has been researching the near-death phenomenon since 1978, and is considered a world authority on the subject. She has addressed audiences at the International Association for Near-Death Studies, as well as the United Nations, and in numerous countries. Her books have been translated into over 12 languages. She has appeared on Larry King Live, Regis and Kathy Lee, and Geraldo and Coast-to-Coast AM. Ms.Atwater, invites people to look past appearances for the truth that underlies what we think we know.

Connie's interesting quote for today is by Joshua J. Marine “Challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” Interesting thought, isn’t it? How many times have you heard your mom or grandmother say, “bad things happen to good people?” It’s so true though. So the question is, how do we prepare for when something unexpected (good or bad) does happen in our lives? Can we actually prepare for the unknown? Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Pratima Aravabhoomi. Pratima is the CEO & founder of CraftStreetDesign.com. They make unique gifts with powerful words that speak to you.

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Panache Desai “Energy, like you, has no beginning and no end. It can never be destroyed. It is only in ever shifting states.” Have you heard about Quantum Physics? Did you know that it is the future of science and also the key to understanding consciousness, psychology, death, and the meaning of life? This must be an amazing science to be able to accomplish all of these things! Today, your host, Connie Whitman speaks with Dr. Amit Goswami.  Dr. Goswami says, “it is the best and clearest approach to understanding our universe. In short, Quantum Physics is the theory of everything.” Dr. Goswami has a new book out. You guessed it, it is called “The Every Thing Answer Book – How Quantum Science Explains Love, Death, and the Meaning of Life.” Amit is going to share some theory and how after 30 years as a theoretical quantum physicist he believes this science has the answers to everything. Theoretical Quantum Physicist Dr. Goswami is a retired full professor from the University of Oregon’s Department of Physics where he served from 1968 to 1997. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness” an idea he explained in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, where he also solved the quantum measurement problem clarifying the famous observer effect. In addition to his newest book, Dr. Goswami has written several other popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness.

An interesting quote for today is by Publius Syrus and He says, “The bow too tensely strung, is easily broken.” Let’s think about this quote for just a minute. If we are too tightly strung or wound, won’t we break too? We are like an instrument that creates beautiful sound. When we are pushed or encouraged just enough, we are able do our best work. Yet, if we are pushed to the point of being unhealthy and stressed out all the time, we clearly do not have the balance and foresight to do our greatest work. So the question is, can we find that perfect balance where we are pulled just tight enough but not to the point of destruction? Today, your host, Connie Whitman speaks with Nicole Lerario. Nicole thinks the answer to this question is, yes, we can find that balance with a little help from some experts. Nicole is the CEO of A Kneaded Vacation Therapeutic Massage & Wellness, and is a Licensed Massage Therapist. Even though Nicole knew that massage was her calling, it actually took her 16 years to go down the road the health and wellness and open her own business. Another passion for Nicole is She is a tea blender and has been blending teas and herbs for much longer than she’s been a massage therapist. Her boutique tea company, Mad Pots of Tea, can be found on Etsy. She has massaged a number of celebrities, from the members of Steely Dan and Foreigner to one of her long-time jazz favorites, Harry Connick Jr. Email: nicole@akneadedvacation.com Website:  www.akneadedvacation.com

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Carrie Fisher “Sometimes you can only find Heaven by slowly backing away from Hell.” The entrepreneurial spirit, is what this country was founded on, correct? Small businesses pop up and disappear every day. The statistics are staggering. So how does a business grow, stay relevant, and create wealth for everyone in the organization? What happens when bad things happen to the leaders or owners of these business? How does a company stay afloat and prosper when things go wrong? Today, your host Connie Whitman speaks with Tony Grebmeier.  Tony is going to share his story of how he created successful businesses and how he almost lost everything due to addictions. Here is some background information on Tony. He launched his first on-line business in 1996 in Silicon Valley. It was a Web traffic and marketing company, which eventually turned into his first supplement company. In 2001, he went on to build his second supplement company, ShipOffers, with two of his childhood best friends, Doug Roberts and Gil Gerstein. Fifteen years later, ShipOffers is an eight-figure business that has been an INC 5000 Company for the past three years in a row. The journey to self-fulfillment wasn’t easy for Tony. He almost lost it all in 2008 after years of struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Facing the near destruction of his marriage and the sad realization that he was negatively affecting his children’s lives, Tony made the decision that year to get sober, and he has stayed sober ever since. As he got clean, he also became clear about his vision to help others find their passion and achieve more.   Website : http://www.tonygrebmeier.com (http://www.tonygrebmeier.com/)

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Benjamin Franklin “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Ever look at that list of the top 100 places to work and think – geez, I’d really like to work for a place like that.   What do you think landed those organizations a spot on that list?   Far from the so-called benefits like vacation and pension plans of last century – today’s companies are excelling by seeing the individual as a whole and not just an employee. So … how did they do it?   Companies like Zappo’s and Google got there by being Value – Driven Organizations – AND! By being organizationally conscious.  Do you even know what “organizationally conscious” means? What about your company ...would you say that your company has a strong culture that supports the development of all employees? If so, good for you! If not, todays topic should provide some enlightenment as well as some clear how to’s, in order to create such a dynamic company, where all employees thrive! Need some help? I know I could use a hand and am eager to hear how we can all create such dynamic cultures at our companies. Richard Barrett is with us to day and this is his second time on the show.   Richard’s new book “The Values-Driven Organization: Cultural Health and Employee Well-Being as a Pathway to Sustainable Performance.” A little bit about Richards background aside from being an author, he is an internationally recognized thought leader on the evolution of human values in business and society. Founder and chairman of the Barrett Values Centre, and a very interesting title - former Values Coordinator at the World Bank. As the creator of Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT), his organization supports more than 6,000 organizations on their transformational journeys.  Website:  www.RichardBarrett.net (http://www.richardbarrett.net/)

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Marianne Williamson “Ego says, “Once everything falls into place, I’ll feel peace.” Spirit says, “Find your peace, and then everything will fall to place.” Ego, when you hear that word, what thoughts or images pop into your head? Do you flash on Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy or picture someone who has an ego so big that you aren’t sure his or her head will fit through a doorway! We all have an ego so is that a good thing? What if I told you that in addition to our regular ego we also have a spiritual ego?   Can we make the word or definition of ego any more complicated? Whew! Today, your host Connie Whitman speaks with, Cate Montana.  Cate is going to dig deep with us about ego why we behave the way we do and how we can have better control over our chosen reality by understanding our spiritual egos. Cate brings her ideas to us with master’s degree in humanistic psychology and writes and teaches about the ego, transpersonal and transcendent consciousness, quantum physics and evolution, and other credits.  She writes for Psychology Today, the UK publication What Doctors Don’t Tell You and blogs for The Huntington Post.

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ from the blog: Traveling with your child with special needs “On a journey of DISCOVERY with your child, take every moment to enjoy the ride.” Children with special needs give us special gifts and share love so freely. For parents with children with special needs, what alternatives are out there, to aid your journey in order for you to support your child any way you can. For those of us who do not have special need children, how can we contribute and provide support to the many resources available for special needs children.

Bonnie’s specialties include providing risk management solutions, identifying and resolving coverage deficiencies, and educating business owners to assist them in lowering their risk as well as their insurance premiums. Many years ago Bonnie worked with the Rugby School when they were her client. After many years being away from the school, she had the opportunity to re-connect with the founder’s daughter, Delores De-Santo. After speaking with Delores, Bonnie realized her heart still belonged to the school and the wonderful programs and successes they have with special needs students. Today I am excited to speak with Bonnie about the Rugby School for Special Needs Children, and how we can all get involved to support such a great institution. Email:  bpreston@therugbyschool.org

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Wayne Dyer “Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others.” Communicating; the ability to express an idea or ideas to another person may be our greatest gifts; unfortunately, we often take it for granted with the people that we are closest to. You know what I mean …sometimes, it’s all in the delivery!  How we speak, and the words we choose. Actually communication has many moving parts including words, intonation of voice and non-verbal cues or body language. When you communicate, do you know what your body is saying? Most of us think we do while in reality, how we are being perceived by those we engage, may not be what we intended. Think about your personal relationships, especially your significant other. Does it seem like you are both on different pages? Are you walking away mid-sentence … or are they?  Why does it keep happening? Can old patterns be stopped? And how can you create a wonderful communication flow all the time? Do not fear, we have an expert to discuss how to improve unspoken communication in relationships and how get out of the rut and back on track. My guest today is Dr. Danielle Forshee. Danielle is a Doctor of Psychology and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. For more than a decade, Dr. Forshee’s practice bridges the gap between academia and the real world, blending scholarly research with practical application to solve complex problems. Dr. Forshee provides training in areas of risk assessment and managing aggressive behavior. In addition to her solo-practice, she is affiliated with Rutgers University, Hackensack Meridian and is the Clinical Consultant for the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide. Areas of specialty include treating high-conflict situations; specifically, those experiencing marital or relationship problems, teenagers experiencing problems of adolescence, and the treatment of non-suicidal self-injury. Her risk assessment expertise has naturally lent itself into the collaborative divorce and mediation arenas. Website: www.marriagecounselingnj.net

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, - blogspots.com “Don’t worry about hard times because some of the Most Beautiful things we have in life come from Changes and Mistakes. Live with No Regrets because everything happens for a reason.” The words Religion & Spirituality are sometimes interchanged. But aren’t they really two different things? So for some clarity, let’s look at the definition of both. First the word Religion: a particular system of faith and worship. Spirituality is defined as: relating to, or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. Did that just make sense to you? Probably not! Instead of guessing about such a complex topic, today your host, Connie Whitman speaks with David Low who holds an MS and PhD in Religious Studies, and who knows this topic inside and out! David is also an author, former Adjunct Professor of Religion, drug counselor, and former entertainer (juggler) who today does dreamwork, teaches meditation, and speaks on topics in popular spirituality and religion. After some powerful meditation experiences, Dr. Low traveled extensively and visited different Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Sufi, Jewish, Christian, and Orthodox Muslim groups. Soon after getting initiation from his major teacher, he began having psychic dreams, often involving “angels” and other spiritual guides, which directed major decisions in his life. An epiphany in 2014 led him to write his first book, Universal Spiritual Philosophy and Practice: in Informal Textbook for Discerning Seekers. His greatest passion is getting people to tune into more profound dimensions of spirituality, at both the personal and political levels.

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Steve Jobs “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.” While we are living our life, middle age creeps up on us. No one is immune to the passing of time and no matter your age, one day you too will be at the mid point of you life. Yikes! How scary while at the same time, it is actually very exciting. This is the time of life when we have tremendous wisdom, confidence, and clarity about our strongest skills and those areas that have we yet to develop. Yet, many folks hit middle age only to find that we are the key candidates getting downsized, or the jobs that are being eliminated seem to have our names on them. What are the choices that we have during the second leg of our productive working lives? Is there a plan of attack that we can follow to help us navigate these new and unsettled waters? Of course you know the answer is a resounding yes! Today, your host ConnieWhitman, speaks with Marc Miller and his career journey including 22 years at IBM, several thriving tech startups, a stint as a high school math teacher, a gig raising funds and a near fatal bicycle accident that changed his perspective forever.

When you start taking life as fun, the ego has to die, it cannot exist anymore.” Pause How many of you saw the movie The Matrix? If you missed it – the story revolves around a character called NEO who wakes up from what seems to be his ordinary life and joins forces with other rebels like Morpheus and Trinity, to over throw the Matrix. The movie was a pop culture phenomenon, creating buzz and new thought about how we see ourselves in the world. Today's guest writes, “The Ego is not who we are. It’s a mental program, like a computer code, enabling us to function in the world—a sensory code giving us the illusion of individuality—an utterly false “REALITY” similar to what’s presented in the movie the Matrix.” What? Are we living in a false reality like Neo did in the Matrix. This poses such an interesting question, what is reality and why does everything seem to be spinning out of control lately. Are we waking up from a dream state? Today, your host Connie Whitman, speaks with Cate Montana who is going to dig deep with us about ego, why we behave the way we do, and how we can have better control over our chosen reality. Cate is no casual movie buff – she brings her ideas to us with master’s degree in humanistic psychology and writes and teaches about the ego, transpersonal and transcendent consciousness, quantum physics and evolution, and other credits. She writes for Psychology Today, the UK publication What Doctors Don’t Tell You and blogs for The Huffington Post. Website:  CateMontana.com (http://CateMontana.com)

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Anonymous “We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.” “You have Cancer,” is probably one of the most terrifying things anyone could hear. Where does one find the strength and determination to move forward and fight the biggest fight of his or her life? There are so many resources with various cancer treatments, as well as holistic approaches. When you think of skin care would that be one of the first things you would consider if you were diagnosed and fighting cancer. Probably not, yet the importance of skin care during this trying time is a piece of the holistic options that are out there to help you navigate these treacherous waters. Today, your host Connie Whitman, speaks with Gina Stamatis. Gina is the CEO of Pure Grace Skincare & Wellness. She is a licensed Esthetician and Reiki Master. In addition, Gina is Oncology and Holistic Skincare Trained. Website: www.puregracespa.com (http://www.puregracespa.com/)

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Billy Chapata “You need to love yourself. Love yourself so much to the point that your energy and aura rejects anyone who doesn’t know your worth.” Wouldn’t it be great if we each had our own forcefield that repelled negative energy? Guess what, it’s more science then fiction and we are going to get into it today. Aura…do you know what it is and how it impacts your life? Can you define and describe your aura to a friend or colleague? How would you begin? Most of us have heard of the word aura and would probably say something like - it's the energy or vibe our bodies give off. Or even, it’s the colors of energy around our bodies. It that’s true, do you see this colorful energy field around yourself or others? I’ll bet most of us can’t see this colorful energy field. Today's guest, Dimitri Moraitis writes in his book, Change Your Aura, Change Your Life he writes, “Everything you think, feel, and do radiates a spiritual energy that comes through in various colors and hues: This is your aura. The aura is your spiritual blueprint. By changing the quality of your aura, you can automatically change the quality of your life." In order to provide some clarity on this topic, your host Connie Whitman speaks with Dimitri, who is going to help us understand what our aura represents, what the colors mean and how we can use this insightful information to change our lives right her and right now! Dimitri is an accomplished metaphysical teacher, healer and is co-author of Communing with the Divine, Karma and Reincarnation, The Healing Power of Your Aura and his new book that came out last May called Change Your Aura, Change Your Life which is the book we will be discussing today. Originally trained in Film/TV, Dimitri redirected his life's work early to pursue the path of metaphysics. Dimitri has been instrumental in organizing the teaching material and bringing Spiritual Arts Institute to the place it is today. He is an eloquent speaker on a wide variety of spiritual topics. He has lectured across the country, appeared on numerous radio shows and teaches workshops and classes offered at the Institute. Are you prepared for the life changing information that we are about to discuss? Website:  www.spiritualarts.org (http://www.spiritualarts.org/)

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Linden Tyler “Invest in your skin. It is going to represent you for a very long time.” What does skin care, health; and typical beauty treatment regiments all have in common. The answer is actually a little disturbing. A few weeks ago, your out Connie Whitman spoke with  Karen Sharon and they discussed this very topic of how personal care product safety, for various skin care products (that we use on our kids and ourselves) have not been evaluated or regulated for safety standards since 1938. Karen Pharo, is a director at Beautycounter and Connie felt compelled to invite Karen back on the show because there were several things that Karen said that resonated with her after the show ended. They continued their conversation and Connie was given the distinct impression that we had only scratched the surface of personal care safety awareness.

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Wayne Dyer “Successful people make money. It’s not that people who make money become successful, but successful people attract money. They bring success to what they do.” Does your budget balance every month? Or does it always seem like the money flowing out of your check book is much greater than the flow of money coming in? Is it because we are spending too much or is it really because the cost of living seems to increase more than our salaries do annually? If you are like most people, the reality is our salaries are not keeping up with inflation. So what do we do? Is there an answer as to how we can not only make ends meet but actually be able to put some extra money away for a rainy day or more importantly for an emergency?

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Mahatma Gandhi “Where there is love there is life.” What do the four seasons and Love have in common? Your host Connie Whitman, speaks with Master Charles Cannon. Master Charles will explain todays topic better than Connie could ever communicate, so she will read what he has written as it relates to the four seasons and Love… Winter— This is the season to let go of our busyness...to allow time for gestation, meditation, connecting with source and nurturing the seed of love in your true nature. As light gives way to darkness you have to explore your inner being, to awaken to the experience of who you really are. Spring— The sprouting of seeds, growth in the world, a blossoming of love for yourself. This is how you are able to increasingly love others. You have nothing without this life force. Alive and loving the experience of life you have. Summer— With summer comes the full expression of who you truly are...an individual and wholly unique manifestation of the love that includes and permeates all of life everywhere in the universe. Summer is the time of flowering; the flourishing that brings life fully into expression. Fall— It’s harvest time and the abundance of life is peaking. Fall gives us the revelation of the seed in its fullness and also produces new seeds for gestation in the winter. Harvest is both a time of reaping and sowing. The end is also the beginning and the cycle of life continues. Master Charles Cannon is known worldwide as a modern spiritual teacher. He was given the title Master by his teacher to denote that he is a Master Spiritual Teacher or one who can teach without words. Master Spiritual Teachers are recognized by their palpable presence, their holistic state of being, which effortlessly empowers everyone in their proximity.

Master Charles will help us explore the four seasons in nature and how we can utilize the energy of these seasons to help empower us to embrace the loving energy that we already poses.

 Pause If Brendon’s quote is true. Why do many of us have a laundry list of items on our daily to-do list that seems to grow over night? Or worse yet … a list of lists?? Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of tasks you need to accomplish in one day? Why do some people like Branson, Oprah and other successful, high performers, seem to have it all together?

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Anthony Robbins “To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use the understanding as a guest to our communication with others.” Pause Do you have a boss that is amazing? He or she listens to your ideas, sits and brainstorms with you, empowers you to run with a project without micro managing? Wow doesn’t working for this person feel amazing and energizing? Do you look forward to going to work every day? How many of you are laughing out loud, at my previous description of a great boss? Why is that? Dose your boss perhaps treat you totally opposite of what I just described? Are you micro managed? Are you spoken to as if you are an idiot or that your ideas are the worst thing your boss has ever heard? Wow, how bad does that feel? Isn’t there a balance with communicating effectively and productively with your boss? Does such a balance exist? Do not fear, we have an expert on this topic of successful business communication.

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Pablo Picasso “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” Life purpose is a term we often hear, yet do we know what our life purpose actually is? And if we don’t know what it is, how do we figure it out? We see so many people living a full life filled with abundance, good health and fun and think, is that possible for everyone or just for the select few?   Perhaps you are thinking, “I’m just an ordinary person who doesn't have any special skills or gifts. Does that mean it is hopeless for me to find my life’s purpose and live this dream life?” Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with an inspiring guest, Rhys Thomas.  Rhys is going to help us look at who we think we are and help us see what our life purpose really is by providing us with some key tools that will help all of us examine who we are from the correct perspective, so we can find our true purpose.

He is the founder of the Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine and the creator of the Rhys Method®, a powerful system of self-discovery, transformation, and healing.

Throughout his career as a tennis professional, coach, business owner, author, husband, father, public speaker, Martial Artist, healer and soul reader he discovered what people who change the world have in common.

Through his work with thousands of people over the last thirty years, Rhys has a simple 3-step process to help you get where you want to go.

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by, ~ Nancy Thayer “The universe is always speaking to us…sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities, reminding us to stop, to look around, to believe in something else, something more..” How many of you work and save for that that fabulous handbag, smart phone or earrings? How many of you say, when I GET that, then I will be happy.” OR When I get that promotion, Ill be able to pay off all my debt.” Then in the blink of an eye … there is something else on our wish list. We constantly look to the future for what we want and think that when we achieve that wish, all will be right with our lives. Then why do we always seem to be searching? And why do we think that getting that THING (whatever it is for you) will make us happy or satisfied. When we hear that we have everything we need right here and right now to be happy, it just doesn’t seem to ring true! So why is it so hard for us to feel satisfied and happy all the time? Today your host, Connie Whitman, speak with Nancy Yearout.  Nancy is going to help us break down these thought patterns and help us truly see what is really right in front of us, all the time. Nancy is a spiritual life coach, motivational speaker and author if her new book, Wake Up! The Universe is Speaking to You. Nancy has also enjoyed an extensive corporate career as a sales coordinator with one of the Big Three automakers in Detroit. Her sales, management, and marketing skills have grown with each step of her business. Her success has blessed her with the real life experience, knowledge, and common sense that is required to help others through life’s challenges. Nancy says, “We are a spiritual people who seem to have gotten away from our true selves. We have lost our way by looking outside of ourselves at material possessions, our looks, fame and fortune. We have to look within ourselves. The true treasure is the energy within us. The love vibration within our heart and soul. This is the vibration that has the ability to change our lives.” Settle in as we explore this concept of being and having enough right here and right now! Website:  www.theenergyprophet.com.

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Buddha “Buddha was asked, “What have you gained from meditation?” He replied, “Nothing! However, Buddha said, let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of Old age and Death.” If Buddha is correct, then meditation should be a tool that is easily utilized, to help us let go of these negative emotions, that aren't serving us in our lives. So why isn't it so easy? Zen, Meditation and intuition are words we hear with such frequency but not sure if we all know how to tap into our intuition to create a Zen like existence in all areas of our lives. Does this description make you visualize a Buddha monk in silent meditation; with nothing around him but a sand garden, beautiful lush green trees and of course a gentle babbling brook or some other gentle water sound in the background? Are all these items needed to set the proper mood for deep meditation? Do you any of you have these elements, at your fingertips, so you too can mediate like a Buddha monk? Of course the answer for most of us is no. So how do we create Zen in our life and bring the peace and tranquility that meditation provides while existing in our ridiculously busy, stress filled lives? Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Cristal Sharma.  Cristal is going to help us find our inner intuition and inner peace with some key tips that have worked wonders in her life. Cristal is a yoga studio owner and instructor with her focus on living an empowered life.  Her own health battles led her to leave a successful finance career to a life of yoga.  Seeing the power of transformation in body, mind and spiritual well-being through her own struggles, she is dedicated to helping you find and live your passion in your busy life.

Connie’s motivational quote today is by, ~ Michael Coulomb “Glowing skin is a result of [roper skincare. It means you can wear less makeup and let skin shine through.” Men and women both wear facial products. From face wash, moisturizer, acne care, wrinkle remedies, after-shave lotion, and the list goes on. Have you ever thought about what ingredients go into the products that you are using and specifically using on your face and skin? Most of us, probably have not given it a second thought because we buy based on products we have used since we were teens, or have chosen products based on claims for minimizing wrinkles, skin redness, etc. from advertisements. Should we believe what we are told through advertisers? Isn’t it up to us to read labels, to ensure that we are limiting the chemicals we put on our bodies and the bodies of our kids? This is such an interesting topic, especially at this time of year when our skin is very dry due to the cold weather and heat in our homes. And perhaps most of us have limited information on this topic. Well get ready, as we discuss what’s really in our skin care and moisturizing products. Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Karen Pharo. Karen is a director at Beautycounter and is a full time teacher, mother of two and is a health and wellness enthusiast.

Connie's motivational quote today is by, ~ Phillips Brooks “Think of life as a voyage. The truest liver of the truest life is like a voyager who, as he sails, is not indifferent to all the beauty of the sea around him..” We all work hard both during the workday and even at night after getting home. We have chores to get done, food shopping, laundry, dinner to cook and of course bed time routines for children and ourselves. Yet the hard work should turn into some fun time too, shouldn’t it? After all we get our few weeks of vacation off every year. Is that enough time off? If it is, how do we extend that feeling of being free while on vacation and be able to bring that same feeling back with us to work. Can we bring that sense of excitement and joy back to work on that fateful Monday, after a week or two off? How many of us say, “my vacation was just too short, it doesn’t even feel like I left work?” “I wish I could take a month off, then I would feel refreshed and energized.” OR “I can’t wait for vacation, but it’s never long enough!” Do any of these statements sound familiar? What are we doing wrong? What are we missing? Is there a better way to take that vacation feeling of joy and excitement back to work? Well the answer to all these questions will be addressed today, in the next half hour. Your host Connie Whitman, apes with Divya Parekh who is going to help us slow down, breath and discover some strategies to help us all find joy while on vacation and how to bring it back to your workplace too.

Connie’s motivational quote today is by, Socrates: "I decided that is was not wisdom that enabled poets to write poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean." Have you ever experienced a profound change or trauma to your physical body, that caused a change to your way of thinking and feeling and thusly how you live? Your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Stephanie Banks who has experienced such a trauma, and has written a book called A Soulful Awakening. She wrote the book after having a horrific biking accident, and a near death experience. She knew she needed to write A Soulful Awakening to explain how her physical trauma allowed her to channel her guides through journaling. Today Stephanie is going to share her gift with us, and is going to do a live channeled reading for Connie. Are you ready to be transformed and inspired as Stephanie shares her gift? Stephanie has done this exact channeled experience with many people around the world, and has been able to help them get in touch with their angels and guides to find answers that were already within them? Let’s stretch our minds and listen to this powerful reading that may help all of us transform our lives and help us all embrace change and grow! This is Stephanie’s third time on the show and today show is really different for Connie because she has never done anything like this.

Connie’s motivational quote today is by, ~ Joshua Loth Liebman” “We achieve inner health only through forgiveness – the forgiveness not only of others but also of ourselves.” Forgiveness and gratitude, we hear so much about these two words. Do you think these two little words can be impactful to your daily life? What if I asked you if forgiveness and gratitude were essential to living a happy life? What do they mean to you and more importantly, do you think they are important words to understand and implement into your daily life? Can they be the most essential ingredients for a happy life filled with meaning? It's good to talk about this topic especially as the New Year dawns. Dr. Lester Sauvage has answered these questions in his book “Opening Hearts – A Cardiovascular Surgeon Reflects on Faith, Healing, Love & the Meaning of Life. Last month, your host Connie Whitman spoke with Barbara Mulvey Little, and we spent our time together talking about Dr. Sauvage's 5 Cardinal Rules for Healthy Living, which are part of the way he suggests we make conscious and loving choices. Today we are going to dig a little deeper and discuss some of the spiritual aspects of the 5 Cardinal Rules for Healthy Living.

Motivational Quote of the Day is by Yann Martel, Life of Pi: “I challenge anyone to understand Islam, its spirit, and not to love it. It is a beautiful religion of brotherhood and devotion.” When you here about the Islam Religion, do you immediately associate that with terrorism? Does this association come from true knowledge about that faith or does it stem from fear? If Islam equates to terrorism then shouldn’t we associate most religions with war and terror? Over the centuries, wars have been fought because of the righteous who say, "in the name of God or in the name of their religion." So why is Islam so different from other religions? Is it, in fact different at all? Today to your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with David Low. David is going to help us understand Islam and how it relates to Christianity, Judaism and other Western Religions. This clarification may provide a clearer picture that people cause wars not religions. David holds a PhD in Religious Studies and is an adjunct professor at Rutgers-Camden, Rowan and LaSalle Universities. He has an MS is Community Counseling and has worked as a substance abuse Counselor for over 7 years. He currently does dreamwork and maintains a small counseling practice. David’s first book recently came out called “Universal Spiritual Philosophy and Practice.” Website www.davidlowmsphd.com (http://davidlomsphd.com) Email: david@worldspirituality.com (mailto:avid@worldspirituality.com)

Connie’s motivational quote today is by, ~ Mother Teresa “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” Have you ever stopped in the middle of what you were doing – shopping, doing dishes, running errands and just thought: What is this all about? What am I here to do? Does my life have a purpose beyond running it? What does what I do and think reveal about who or what I love? Why does it matter? All these questions are so important and yet often elusive to finding actual answers. If they are so important, then why are they so hard to answer and define? Dr. Lester Sauvage has answered so many of these questions in his book “Opening Hearts – A Cardiovascular Surgeon Reflects on Faith, Healing, Love & the Meaning of Life." Barbara Mulvey Little is speaking with your host, Connie Whitman, today about this masterful book and share why she was chosen to help him write this book and the meaning behind Dr. Sauvage’s words. Barbara Mulvey Little was invited to work with Dr. Sauvage in what became the last 18 months of his life. Recognizing his passion to complete this book as his enduring healing legacy, Little drew from her skills as writer, editor, hospice caregiver, and spiritual director.. Throughout their collaboration, one of the book’s primary topics—the spirituality of consciously choosing love—was constantly put to the test: Sauvage suffered a stroke, the death of his beloved wife of 60 years and its accompanying bereavement, and increasing physical dysfunctions from Parkinson’s disease that challenged every aspect of life for this once-vital, independent man. Yet Sauvage remained faith-filled and focused on completing his book. Barbara is an author, freelance book editor, journalist, and workshop facilitator. I don’t know about you but I am looking forward to uncovering some clear answers as to how to find love and joy in our lives immediately! website: BarbaraMulveyLittle.com (http://BarbaraMulveyLittle.com) Email: info@BetterLifePress.com (mailto:info@BetterLifePress.com)

Connie's motivational quote of the day is by ~ Tom Peters “Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding.  We are CEO’s of our own companies:  ME Inc.  To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called YOU.” Do you know what a brand is?  Did you know that there is such a thing as a personal or individual brand?  What is the benefit of having a personal brand and what do we need to do to create a strong individual brand? If you asked you peers or direct reports to say one sentence that encapsulates who you are or how you are viewed, what would they say?  Do you think the feedback would be smart, firm, fair, passionate, and communicative?  Or would the results say that you are difficult to approach and discuss issues with, that you are stubborn, short sided and closed minded? Here’s the reality, unless you ask for this feedback, your perception of how you are being viewed could be very different than the people you actually deal with day to day.  So how do we create the proper brand and do we even have control of how others see us? Do not fear, your host, Connie Whitman, has an expert on this topic of personal branding for business success.  Beverly Langford is President of LMA Communication. A consulting, training, and coaching firm that works with organizations and individuals on strategic communication, message development, effective interpersonal communication skills, team building, and leadership development. Beverly is also the author of her newly released and completely updated THE ETIQUETTE EDGE: Modern Manners for Business Success.

Today's motivational quote is by, ~ Anonymous “Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out.” How many of us spend a ton of money on beauty supplies and still feel like we look washed out, worn out or just plain tired?  All the cosmetic lines out there, for men and women, claim their products will enhance our eyes, lips, and the look and feel of our skin, but how many of them really accomplish any of it?  Is there a semi-permanent resource for us to feel alive and feel like we look attractive? Today your host, Connie Whitman, Speaks with Gina Ferraro who took the leap of faith and opened her own beauty spa called Belizza, Lash and Beauty Spa.  She has various options for folks who are looking to save time and money every morning while preparing to look our best.  Gina’s salon offers, facials, massage, lash extensions, waxing, threading and eyebrow tinting, spray tanning, and that’s just to name a few! Gina is going to help us explore the various options so we can all choose the options that are best for us.  Not only do I patronize Belizza once per month, I am Gina and her team’s biggest fan.  I get more compliments as to how young I look even after recently turning 55.  Lets settle in and listen as Gina tells us how to look our best for the holidays as well as every day of the year!

Motivational quote for today is by ~ ― Jennifer Brown “Just like there's always time for pain, there's always time for healing.”  The way that we feel dictates everything about our lives.  Our health truly is the most important thing we should think about.  But its hard … there are temptations at every turn AND so much conflicting information out there. When you watch TV, doesn’t there seem to be pill for every aliment we suffer from?  Yet while we fix one issue, the pill or medication usually causes some other part of our body or organ to malfunction.  Talk about a vicious cycle! As an alternative to traditional medicine, there has been a ton of talk about energy healing and other holistic healing modalities.  Have you ever heard of Scalar Energy Healing?  Neither did I, until I met my guest today, Tom Paladino. Tom is a Scalar Energy Healer /Researcher, and Author of 6 volume Scalar Energy for the World Booklet Series. He has developed an unparalleled REMOTE treatment healing process called the “Pathogenic Cleanse”. He has developed scalar energy instruments that are capable of disassembling pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoan.  This Godsend will soon be heralded as the cure for all pathogenic disease. He is passionate about sharing his groundbreaking research with a wide audience in order to introduce the cure for pathogenic disease to mankind.  This is the central theme of his current research.  Sit back, take notes and listen to how Tom may be able to help you eliminate the disease that has been plaguing your body.  Please help me welcome Tom Paladino!

Today's motivational quote  is by ~ Alan Cohen (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/19734.Alan_Cohen) “Busyness is not a reason for not getting other things done. It is an excuse for not claiming your true priorities.” We all have 24 hours or 1,440 minutes every day.  What do you do with all this time?  Is it being spent on things that will give you the life you dream of and desire? Or are you living on the hamster wheel, running and not really moving from the same point you start at each day?  Frustrating, right? How many of you use phrases like, “I don't have enough time to get everything done,” “I wish I had more than 24 hours per day, then maybe I could catch up,” “Time is flying by and I can’t seem to ever catch up, there has to be a better way.” Do any of these statements sound familiar?  What are we doing wrong?  What are we missing?  Is there an easier way to control time?  Well the answer to all these questions will be addressed today, in the next half hour.  WOW!  That’s a ton to cover and my guest Divya Parekh is here to help us slow down, breath and discover some strategies to help us all control our day and become more productive.

Change is hard for most humans.   But the change in one’s marital status can be monumental … and painful.   So many factors are in play, from kids to money and the emotional distress of losing your partner it can really be debilitating. How do you know what the correct process is for you, if you have chosen divorce?  Is there even an affordable way to execute the splitting of assets without losing most of it, to the costs associated with divorce. If you are thinking or are in the throws of getting a divorce, your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Jann Bate Catto.

Happiness … wow …something we all strive for but often just can’t get to, right. Today we are going to talk about some of the challenges we face on our path to peace of mind and how to clear the path to our goal. Did you know that 80% of our thoughts are negative?  Humans have approximate 60,000 thoughts per day and if 80%, or 48,000 of them are negative what does that say about our psyche?  Research has found that 98% of our daily thoughts are exactly the same thoughts we had yesterday.  Talk about being on a hamster wheel! With all these stats, what does it really mean?  Think about how you feel during and at the end of the day.  Are you filled with energy and enthusiasm or are you usually faced with fatigue and trying to keep your head above water. If fatigue often over shadows your days, then your thoughts may be clouded with words like, “Never,” “Should,” and my favorite negative word “Can’t.” We get stuck with our own negative record playing, getting stuck and repeating the same negative thoughts and ideas, over and over again.  Yikes…how do we stop this insanity? Get ready to get reset; Michael Sage Hider (http://michaelhider.tateauthor.com/) is with us.  Here is his profile:  B.S. Degree in Engineering, an M.S. Degree in Philosophy with a strong minor in Psychology, and a Law Degree. He was a Trial Attorney for eleven years and a California Superior Court Judge for thirty years, and has recently retired. For decades, (during his tenure as a judge?) he also worked on how to bring Enduring Peace of Mind, the greatest treasure in the world, to people with troubled souls. Michael does this for folks, regardless of what’s happened in their past, their present situation, and their prospect s for the future.  He offers this valuable information in his book called “Spiritual Healing-Making Peace with Your Past (https://www.amazon.com/Spiritual-Healing-Making-Peace-Your/dp/1632686546).”   Michael provides Healing Steps and methodology, in his book, for those wishing to step out of the negative vortex of their thoughts and enter into a life filled with positive, beautiful self-enriching thoughts.

Do you feel like you have enough money in the bank?  Do you feel like you earn enough money to live the life you imagine?  Do you feel like you will ever be able to retire?  Do you like money or do you like what money can buy? So many key questions about money.  But what if your money issues have nothing to do with your earning power and more about your overall relationship with money?  Think about that for a minute…how can we have a relationship with money when money is a thing that we can transact to buy stuff!  What does a relationship with money have to do with anything? Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Meira Findel (http://www.TotalFinancialMakeover.com) and we will get some answers to these very important questions about money.  Meira is an accountant specializing in bookkeeping and tax services for small business.  In addition she is a Reiki Master and Entrepreneur.  Meira has a vision and is taking action to revolutionize the way we all think about abundance, prosperity and wealth so we can become liberated financially from the “old world” thinking. Meira Findel, known as “The Holistic Accountant”, realized through her work with many diverse clients that “Financial Independence” is about much more than the proper handling of financial matters. “We are talking about deep seated beliefs that people hold about wealth creation in their business lives and in their personal lives. In order for me to assist people to really attain the goals they desire, it inevitably comes down to how they think, feel and react to the energy and issues around money”.

What is self-esteem and are we born with it?  If we are born with it, then is it society, or the world that helps to diminish our self-esteem over time or are we just good at it devaluing ourselves on our own. How do we learn to put ourselves down, to joke about the things we dislike about ourselves, and allow people to treat us disrespectfully?  We know it’s wrong; we know we should stand up and speak out for the injustice of it all, yet we sit quiet and allow our self-esteem to be squashed like a bug. Today, your host, Connie Whitman, seeks with Dr. Patricia Noll. Dr Noll will provide some answers to this very important topic.  Patricia is a Televised Self-Esteem Expert. She is a speaker, consultant, and the author of Good With Me: A Simple Approach to Real Happiness from the Inside Out.She is a Mental Health Counselor, Certified Addictions Professional, Acupuncture Physician, and Founder of Focus One, an Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Program that was licensed by the state of Florida in 1989.

Generational Differences, Technology, and Body Language – What do they all have in common? All three play a huge role in how we communicate at work, in meetings and with one-on-one conversations.    Because these are integral elements of our own persona’s -  they play into how we are perceived in our work environments. So … Do you know what messages (whether conscious or unconscious) you are sending out? Most of us would say, “sure we do.  People see me as I’d like to be perceived.” If that were true  - would you be willing to ask several colleagues, bosses, and direct reports to give you anonymous evaluation about how you communicate and what type of receptivity you actually get from those same folks? Do not fear, we have an expert on this topic of modern manners for business success and Beverly Langford is going to unravel some key concepts for us to utilize to be successful in this changing environment.

Today people can be classified as leaders because they are top sellers, magnets for clients … or just grossing more than their colleagues. But really leadership is the ability to blaze trails and guide others to find their inner strengths. Sometimes, leadership seems to have more to do with managing systems, process and reports than in does about leading people to growth, success and new skill attainment. According to a Gallup Poll in 2014, 70% of the working population says, “They hate their job.” So what are we doing wrong? We know this is an important topic, yet no one seems to know how to remedy this epidemic of work place unhappiness. Today, your host, Connie Whitman speak with Dr. Lance Secretan and they are going discuss his firm belief that our world leadership is broken—whether politics, business, education, health care, law or religion. But don’t worry; Lance has some answers and ideas to help us unravel this mess many organizations and leaders have found themselves in. Dr. LANCE SECRETAN, new book, The Spark, the Flame, and the Torch: Inspire Self. Inspire Others. Inspire the World, is a masterwork because in it he integrates 35 years of experience and theory to show us how to fulfill our destiny and create inspiring organizations. Lance offers a comprehensive approach to being an inspiring person—and therefore an inspiring leader. Website: http://www.secretan.com/

If your business is not on the web, does it even exist?  There is so much hype about having an Internet presence and words are used like SEO.  For those of you who are like me, I had to look up SEO to learn that it means Search Engine optimization.  What???

Meditation.    It’s a practice that’s been around for thousands of years.  But … recently, Meditation and all of its benefits are undergoing a resurgence of interest and popularity. It’s been noted to help kids in school, help with addictions like tobacco and to contribute to better focus and overall well-being. Meditation is really brain training – to help you learn to quiet your mind and make it stop careening wildly from thought to thought.  So, if it takes just a few minutes each day – and you don't need any special equipment to do it, why isn’t everyone taking advantage of this absolutely free practice? I think for some of us it’s a matter of how to …you can find App’s, recordings and guided mediation, And then when to:  every time we think about fitting in 20 minutes to meditate a list of 10 other things on our to-do list pops up. Your host, Connie Whitman and her guest David Low are going to sort this all out.   David is going to help us understand why meditation is so important to our health and is going to discuss the different techniques of mediation so we can choose the style that may actually work for us.  This clarification may provide a clearer picture in choosing your unique path.

Pursuing your passion, living a balanced life, aligning with the universe. All of these phrases have been incorporated into our everyday nomenclature. Easy to say … but really adapting to these adages, and accepting their principals may not only affect your mental and emotional state-of-mind but also, just how you feel, physically. Need some help? I know I could use a hand. Today your host, Connie Whitman, and her guest Richard Barrett (http://www.richardbarrett.net/) are going to sort this out. Richard’s new book “A New psychology of Human Well-Being.” At the heart of Richards theory is that the path to health and well-being involves satisfying one’s ego’s needs and one’s soul’s desires. If we are unable to satisfy the former, it will be difficult to satisfy the latter. Aside from being an author, Richard is internationally recognized as a thought leader on the evolution of human values in business and society. Founder and chairman of the Barrett Values Centre, and a very interesting title - former Values Coordinator at the World Bank. As the creator of Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT), his organization supports more than 6,000 organizations on their transformational journeys.

We know two things are certain in this life:  We will pay taxes and we will all die someday. It’s also a statistical fact that we are living longer.  Does this mean that we all grow old with a quality life that most would be envious of, or is aging really another reality of existing within the same body and mind that no longer seems to serve us? We all know someone whose parents have dementia or some other debilitating issue that prevents them from getting around and enjoying what is left of his or her life.  When things seem to change suddenly with an elderly parent – it can be startling, that your parent that you have relied on suddenly in need of your help. The key question that needs to be asked is:  How to manage this new normal - - so that we can focus on enjoying this aging person that we love so dearly, while still giving them the opportunity to have quality of life. Today your host, Connie Whitman, Speaks with Vlad Zherenovsky they are going to discuss some strategies and ways to approach this devastating family situation before tragedy strikes.

When you hit a brick wall in your career and money seems to stop flowing all together, what do you do?  Are the answers obvious and the shift towards a new direction seamless?  Of course not, if anything it’s the complete opposite.  Yet, so many people seem to shift their focus, change their career and survive, while others seem to get stuck and are not able to move forward.  So what’s their secret?  Is there a secret that we can all learn and use?

Why do so many organizations focus on managing processes but don’t seem to know how to lead teams to ultimate success?  The value outside organizations is often greater than the perceived value of the people within.  Is this the concept of the grass is always greener on the other side (outside) the fence?  Perhaps, this is why many companies have high employee turnover rates, employees who drag themselves to work and do the bear minimum to fly under the radar, and employees and managers who dislike what they do and the people they work for. So why do we get up and go to work everyday?  To earn money certainly but the problem with this statement is the word “work.”  Work is associated with a 9-5; I hate my job and live for the weekend way of life.  If all this is true then is there a better way to create a high value rate of exchange inside our organizations? Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Michelle Lifschitz. Michelle is going to tell us her story and how her company has embraced positive and inspiring change using Organizational Development strategies, in order to create internal value for the company and for the employees.

When things go wrong in your life, whether big or small, do you react with calm and poise? Or do you react as if the sky is falling? Do you know people who seem to get, what I call, scary calm when literally their house is on fire, and they remain in control and pulled together? How do they do it? While in movies when have seen a character that is going nuts and out of control because something bad has happened, another other character will slap them in the face to snap them out of their crazed state. The two reactions are so extreme…why do different people react so drastically different? Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with John Vespasian (https://www.facebook.com/john.vespasian). John is going to provide some insight as to why it’s difficult for humans to remain calm in the face of adversity.

Have you ever been asked a question only to have the listener’s eyes glaze over or have them look away as you are answering?   How about the flip side?   When you meet someone at a party or a networking event – do you really listen to what they are saying or are you guilty of non-listening too? One of my former colleagues used to say; “we have one mouth and two ears so we should be listening at least twice as much as we talk.  Yet, this rule doesn’t seem to apply to most people we communicate with.  Why?  Those of us who are really interested, and choose to listen actively, what are we missing?  Smacking someone in the face and saying, “hey!  I’m talking over here!”  Probably isn’t a good alternative. Today your host, Connie Whitman speaks with Esther Hughes.  Esther is a communications expert and she is going to help us fine-tune those skills so that you’ll never be the victim of a deaf ear again. Take some notes so you can learn a tip or two as to how to become an amazing presenter.

Spirituality is a big topic that we hear about often in our present culture.  What does spirituality mean to you?  Would you define it as finding inner peace, or a balanced life?  Maybe you think being more spiritual is simply sharing kindness to the world.  Do you look at spirituality, inner peace, balance, etc. as something you even think is attainable or as a foreign concept?  Do you even know where to begin to start to gain clarity within this monumental topic? Well today, your host Connie Whitman,  speaks with David Low.  David is going to help us understand the difference between religion and spirituality.  This clarification may provide a clearer picture of the path that you may be seeking.  We are also going to discuss some of the tragedies that are happening in our current events and try to find the purpose behind the tragedy.

To all my entrepreneurs, sales people and leaders in organizations, today’s show will provide some clarity on the topic of how to engage your perfect client and increase profits.  How do we do this and is it easily accomplished?  What if it were, would you duplicate the ideas and questions that will be shared with you today? You’ve heard the phrase, “you do not know what you do not know?"  So how do we learn what we do not know so we do know.  Here’s the simple answer:  it’s everything we say in conversation, items we use in our marketing materials, sales conversations, sales pages, general & marketing emails, articles we write, etc. Yet, the result of all these marketing efforts is low sales, actually disconnecting from prospects, or people don’t understand what we do. Plus we aren’t generating any new referrals.  The reality is, we can’t help them unless we know what they want (WIIFM). Today you host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Carrie Greene.  Carrie is going to help us understand what’s really on our customer/prospects minds and teach us some new information to help us use messaging to help us attract our ideal client.  Without new prospects and a full pipelines our businesses can fail quickly.  Stay tuned as Carrie helps us pump up our message to gain killer profits.

In sales, service, and/or support positions as well as in running a business; a key attribute that is needed for success is exceptional communication skills.  This is critical for our individual success as well as organizational success.  When we talk about communication skills there are many moving parts.  For example three key components of communication are how we use our tone of voice, words and the most important non-Verbal’s or body language. Some fun facts about each of these skills:  Body language accounts for 55% of how our message is received; 38% is our tone of voice and how we are actually heard; and last words account for only 7%. In addition to these basic skills our brains are all wired a certain way and we communicate from our own perspective.  This perspective of thinking has both strengths, as well as challenges associated with each style.  How do we know what our style is and what’s the impact as to how our message is received?  Well today your host, Connie Whitman speaks with is Carrie Greene.  Carrie is going to teach us all about our Profit  Profile and the strengths and challenges of each.

One of my favorite words in this world is Gratitude.  What does gratitude mean to you? Webster’s Definition is:  the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Having and feeling gratitude can change you life.  It changes your vibration and energy that goes out in to the world.  Do you feel grateful every day?  There is always something to be grateful for.  That fresh cup of coffee in the morning to get you going, or the sun beaming on your face as you drive to work, perhaps the great night sleep you had, an so on and so on.  Are you grateful for these small things? If you are unsure of what gratitude is or how it may change your life, your host, Connie Whitman speaks with TJ Woodward (http://www.tjwoodward.com/), (who is back for the second time) about ideas to help you incorporate gratitude into your daily life as well as discussing many other ideas of how to live an awakened life to help you become more successful in your personal and business life.

You’ve heard from scientists and doctors that our mind is a powerful thing and has the capability to heal and improve our bodies.  First, do you think you have the power to heal yourself?  Second, if you do think you have that power, do you know how to tap into your brain to help you create the optimal health you desire? We are a society of quick fixes, and we all look for that magic pill.  We all know that this magic pill doesn’t really exists and actually causes more distress to other areas of our body as it fixes the one ailment we were looking for help for in the first place.  Is there an alternative or a resource to help us gain access to our brains potential to actually have the power to heal ourselves?  What if I told you there is such a resource.  Would you be intrigued?

Have you heard the phrase, “There’s an app for that?”  Of course you have and perhaps you know someone who created an app, to be used as a useful tool on our smart phones.  How do app creators develop the app and have it go live so we can search and find it so we can download it to our smart phones. How many apps and cool solutions do you use daily?  Most of us depend on our apps and use them daily from GPS, to traffic information, to games, to exercise apps.  So how does the inventor come up with the idea? What’s their muse?  Then after formulating a brilliant idea, what do they do with it for it to come to life? If you have a brilliant app waiting to be born and not sure where to start, then you are in store for a huge treat.  Today, your host, Connie Whitman, will speak with Dawn Nichols about the creation of a new app that can become a life-changing app in a parent’s life.  Are you intrigued? Since the show is about change, today’s show has two-change components.  First is the creation of something brand new and the challenges of creating and making something available that has never been offered before…change!  The second key aspect of change, is how a mom, and a small business owner, was able to create, develop and build a new real life app for changing a child’s behavior.  We have so much to discuss so hang on as we dive head first into cyber space where anything is possible! Dawn Nichols has an eclectic background including technology, sales and adult education. She has worked in academia, corporate and in her own businesses.  Two of Dawn's passions are empowering people through education and creating environments where all children can thrive. She combined them to create an app and is on a mission to educate and encourage parents and teachers to use the “caught being good” approach to successfully modify behavior.

What you bring to the job; the moment – the conversation – is what steers the path.   To be a successful navigator of your ship, you need clarity and focus.  The ability to dismiss “the chatter” … the FB posts, the errands that must be run, the massive amounts of media that are streamed directly to our brains.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could just do a hard reset on our minds and start with a fresh outlook? If it were only that easy!  Or is it?  If you had the proper tools to keep your mind at peek performance would you be willing to give it a shot and try it out?

How many of you have a plan for retirement?  Do you put money away every month, or once in awhile when you have extra cash at the end of the month?  Do you invest based on your gut feeling or do you have an expert advising you?  If you're like me, you might be overwhelmed by the bazillions of ways you can plan for retirement. Let’s say we all have a good, actionable plan. Good for us, right? Sure it is as long as we stick to that plan.  Or how many of us have gone into panic mode and shifted our holdings to either be more aggressive or conservative based on the stock market results?   Many people make decisions based on fear.  Is this a good strategy and can we even call it a strategy?  We probably have many more questions than answers on this subject.  After all we are talking about our money that is needed when we are no longer working.  If you are freaked out, no worries.  Help is on the way!

Do you think success happens to people because of luck or coincidence?  When you meet someone, who you view as successful, do you think, “Sure they were at the right place at the right time.  They are so lucky.  That never happens to me?”  Do you think this statement is true?  If you answered yes, then perhaps you have never thought about your defining moments in life and how you responded to those moments.  Do you even know how to reflect back to see if you have had defining moments, during your life, and missed them?  Is it possible to miss defining moments, in the first place?

Do you seem to put off all of your big dreams or long-term “To Do List” goals?  Why?  Why are we always in a waiting mode of thinking?  Does this statement sound familiar?  When “X” happens I will finally be able to do XYZ?  Why isn’t that time right now?  Ask yourself, “What am I waiting for?”  How do we hold ourselves accountable so our goals are able to create a new reality that is clearer, happier and happening right now?

When you hear the word “Change,” in the work place, what is your first thought?  Is it, “I’m excited to see what these new changes are and the new opportunity that it will provide for me and my team?”  OR do you think to yourself, “Here we go again.  Another change from the higher ups.  It’s the new flavor of the month.  It won’t stick and it’s probably stupid and will hurt us all.  I just know it!” Over 50% of us respond with the second doom and gloom reaction.  The unknown is down right scary.  Isn’t it also very necessary to become better, stronger, and more profitable?  Of course, change is necessary yet the initial gut reaction is nothing short of dramatic and frightening.  Why is this?  Why do we resist change with such fervor?  If we just let go and see what the changes talked about would actually be; and have the first thought of “could the change be good for me or us?”  Wouldn’t that be easier and less stressful? My guest today, Doug Krug (http://www.elsolutions.com/), is going to help us see the light and provide an alternative and process that may take the angst out of our reaction to change.  For 15 years Doug has taught at Johns Hopkins University’s MBA Program. Doug has also served in Executive Development programs at CDC, FBI Academy, DEA, NASA, VA, IRS, Coast Guard, Medicare, ATF, GE, NASDAQ, EPA, Labor and Secret Service Academy.

Even if you are successful, are you still passionate and excited about what you are doing every day?  Or are you a person that dreads going to work but keeps doing it even though it’s no longer fulfilling?  Has this unhappiness, or negatively impacted your life personally, as well as your overall well-being.  Do you feel you need a change but are too scared or unsure of what change to make?  Isn’t the decision to leave behind the stability and security of the corporate world a big part of our decision making process?

Monique was a fashion-merchandising director who transformed herself into an entrepreneur while giving back to charitable causes around the world.  Monique is going to tell her story of how she went from a successful career in corporate fashion, to leaving that role, to find her passion in order to regain enthusiasm, fulfillment, and balance back into her life.

Have you ever consider human consciousness from a scientific perspective? Does matter exist outside of the mind, with no rationale or direction, the universe created completely by chance?  How do science and philosophy work together to explain the universe, how it works and how it was created?  Do you even understand what any of this means? My guest today, Phillip Comella is a lawyer, visionary futurist, and host of a radio show, “Conversations Beyond Science and Religion, on webtalkradio.net. His book, The Collapse of Materialism:  Visions of Science, Dreams, God (http://www.thecollapseofmaterialism.com/), is a culmination of decades of work developing a new and credible scientific paradigm to unify the physical world of science with the metaphysics of religion. Look to the skies as you listen and ponder Phillips ideas about visions of science, dreams and God.

Are your dreams vivid or vague?  Do you remember the details or just a feeling that sticks with you from the dream when you wake up?

Put on your nightcaps but don’t go to sleep as we explore this intriguing subconscious conversation with ourselves. To Reach John:  352-316-7916

How many of us wake up in the morning feeling frantic because our day seems to begin before our eyes even open?  Do you put your head on the pillow at night and your mind begins to race thinking about your to do list for the next day or week versus quietly and gently falling into slumber?  Does this hamster wheel of constant motion, responsibilities, and pressure ever stop, so you can take a breath before continuing on? Most of us feel this pressure and strain, to perform, both at home and at work 24 hours a day.  We have a need to fit everything in and often put ourselves last in order to keep our heads above water.  Is there an answer to creating a life balance or some form of integration between the two?  If there were a clear answer to this question, would you listen and be willing to commit to doing things differently? If you just answered yes, then you are in store for a treat.   Today your host, Connie Whitman, will speak with Dr. Luanne Fisher (mailto:lfisher@libertylutheran.org) who is the President and CEO of Liberty Lutheran Services.  Luanne is a lecturer, author and consultant.  She’s an expert in topics ranging from Fiscal Management for long-term Care Facilities, Personal Management, Labor Relations, and Mergers, to Wellness and Future Trends.  She is going to help us decide what we want in life so we can choose our own course of action and create more control, so we can get off that hamster wheel and breath. Luanne is going to provide some clear “How To’s” that has worked for her and those she works with, in order to help us change our current way of thinking to create balance, calm and control in our every day lives. Are you willing to open your mind to simple ways to create a happy, balanced reality that is not crazed and frantic?

Do you wake up and think of how to move your body before getting out of bed to ensure you don’t pull or injure a body part, as you rise? Does you mind say you are still 20 while your body screams, “reality check, you are really 40 or 50 something?” Do you have family obligations and feel fear every time you think about making a life changing decision?

It’s that holiday time of year again, where we feel all warm and toasty inside…or do we? The character Ebenezer Scrooge was created to depict that grumpy person who sees only the bad in the world, even around the holidays. We understand this point of view every day as we watch the news and all the crazy horrific things that are going on around the world. Why do we behave so? Perhaps the missing ingredient is as simple as one word…gratitude. If we can all just stop each day; briefly to see the good and wonderful things all around us, just maybe the world would really be a better place. Can you contribute to this shift simply by being grateful? Today your host, Connie Whitman, will speak with TJ Woodward (http://www.tjwoodward.com/). He is an author, speaker, addiction counselor, TV and radio show host. He has a new book, “Conscious Being” which is an insightful guide for rediscovering your essential nature and living an intentional and awakened life. TJ is going to help us figure out how powerful gratitude is and how easy it is to be a state of gratitude.

Seeing ourselves on video can feel like looking in one of those distorted carnival mirrors. Usually we try to avoid it at all costs. Are we overly critical of ourselves --- and are we just as critical of others? Or … are we kinder and more complimentary to others we see on video? Bottom line, unless you are Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston, the camera is usually viewed as not being our friend. Why is that? Is it the shape of our face, the shape of our bodies or the actual sound of our voice? Does anyone ever like the way they look or sound? Most will answer that the video camera is a horrifying experience…why? We function in the world everyday and are successful; where people see us just as we see the same reflection when watching ourselves on a video recording. So what’s the difference? Today your host, Connie Whitman, is going to speak with Jeany Park, Co-Founder of Compass Rose Video (http://www.compassrosevideo.com/) who is going to help us understand why we repel watching ourselves on video and how we can improve that perception. This is especially important if we are business owners or marketing mangers. Jeany is going to help us break down the importance of using video as part of our marketing strategies as well as provide some tips on how to put our best foot or rather face forward. Get ready, quiet on the set…lights, camera, action!

How many of us chose a quick fix to help with pain, versus seeking more natural alternatives? A pill is easy, isn’t it? But the real question is - what if there are better options to heal our bodies permanently? Would you go for it, or would you at least investigate the alternative? We have so many new and natural choices available to us today but how do we determine if an alternate route will work for us? How do we educate and arm ourselves with clear and accurate information? There are so many resources after all! Today we are going to speak with Jenifer Legge (http://www.facebook.com/thisnourishedlife), who is the CEO of This Nourished Life (http://www.thisnourishedlife.com/). Jen is an expert with The Body Code System and she is going to help us explore another energy healing modality that is safe and effective. Are you ready to learn about negative energies our bodies have been holding onto since we were young children, and how to release these toxic energy’s? We will also discuss how these stored emotions may be causing us dis-ease in our bodies as adults. Get out a piece of paper so you can take notes and see if this system is the next good thing for your body!
