Episode #20 – Her remarkable love for words led the way free against all odds.

Featuring Maya Saric

For Maya it was always about words. She loved to study them and how they worked and flowed in a sentence. Growing up in Serbia, it meant war and bombs always. It created an environment for Maya that meant learning a way out and surviving.

She was really curious about the English language but through some set of circumstances ended up learning Arabic and found herself in Syria. While she was there she roomed with a Canadian who promised to always speak English to her. In a funny turn of events, her wish to learn English still came true!

 

When she looks back on her work life, Maya remembers,

“And I didn’t have any bad bosses. On the contrary I had great colleagues. But I didn’t feel happy. I didn’t feel fulfilled. Because I did some things, I did things that didn’t have anything to do with my heart. I wasn’t following my passion. I wasn’t empowered. I wasn’t …I just wasn’t happy.”

 

This remarkable gift of awareness brought her to her current work as a copywriter. She loves to bend words for her clients to give them the MOST impact and leave an impression on their potential clients.

Episode #19: When her heart called her to move for love.

Featuring Jennifer Nunez

Meet my good friend and fellow lady entrepreneur, Jennifer. She has a lighthearted spirit with a pragmatic way of doing things. Her interview is very close to my heart as we both traveled, and moved for our partners in love. Though there are similarities as with most stories, no 2 are the same. I found it really empowering how she made certain decisions to move over to the Netherlands. What finally motivated her?  Her heart!

“My heart was telling me, This is right thing for you.”

During this interview she talks about these key points:

  • Long distance to moving for her relationship
  • Opening up a freelance business
  • Navigating Immigration by securing a self-employed visa.
  • Her trust in herself has allowed for her to see new opportunities in what she has to offer in her growing business.

WHERE is your heart leading you?

There is something you may want or desire in your life but sometimes life gets too busy to slow down and take the time to really look at what it would mean or take the steps to make those changes.

When you work with a coach you are saying to yourself, NOW is the time to follow your heart. But not only that, you are also saying you are READY to do something about it and not just dream your life away. I’m looking for that type of woman. The one who:

  • has a burning desire to change her life (in one area or ALL areas of her life)
  • has an intuition that there is more to life than what she has been currently living.
  • has a growth mindset and wants to live a fuller more joyful life.
  • is following her own spiritual path.
  • is ready to commit to herself by working with a coach.

If this sounds like YOU then let’s have a chat online to see if I can support you in making change happen in your life today.

Once all 5 spots are filled, I will not be open again until Spring/Summer. Please book your call to see if this is right for you.

Episode #18: How her courageous heart led her around the world – Maggie Giele

Featuring Maggie Giele

“But in the end I had this strong gut feeling. No I have to go. This is what I need to do.”

Maggie started her life in Prague, Czech Republic. At the ripe old age of 3 her world tour began. Moving to and living in cities such as: Salt Lake City, Chicago, and Palo Alto. It wasn’t until age 9 where they settled for Singapore. She attended AND matriculated in the local school system standing out, naturally, because of her blue eyes and blonde hair! No way could she hide when her homework wasn’t handed in. Later this fast-paced & competitive environment, which includes Formula One cars racing in the background, proved to be, isolating for Maggie. She wanted to discover more even when life was looking okay, or just fine as it was, some might say.  This is where her story really gets interesting! 

Maggie certainly knows how to face fear with a courageous heart and work beyond her limitations. Tune in to find out how she,

  • finds a University to accept mid-term!
  • moves her family across the world and changing climates
  • learns she has ADD and finds her way to manage it
  • re-calibrated her business after a debilitating burn-out

Here is a woman who has seen it all and still landed on her feet. At an early age, she developed a love for travel. “I blame this on my parents,” is how she remembers it. Her fascinating story unravels several things that really gets you to the core of who Maria-Ines is and how she has come to rely on herself with each transition in her life.

“Because the passion was bigger than fear that, you know, any situation could have given me.”

During this interview she shares how she went from studying architecture to becoming a humanitarian. How she moves from Venezuela to Washington D.C. and working on assignment in Nigeria. And then in a major turn of events how she followed her heart and bought a one-way ticket into a WAR zone!!!!!

Through it all she stayed the course by following her passion (and heart) by leaving her fear behind. Take a journey into Maria-Ines’ world and hear her words,

Episode #16: What is the Imposter really telling us?

In this podcast I’m joined by a fellow coach, Eva Visser Plaza of Eva Authentic Living. We walk through the landscape of Imposter syndrome, what is it, how we feel about it for ourselves, and how we work inside this concept with our clients, also how we learn from our clients.

Some common points that both Eva and I have are:

  • How the word SHOULD shows up
  • Often we are striving to fit in
  • we both feel the EGO is not something to rid yourself of.
  • we agree it’s more situational and less like you have a disease

Mid-way through this podcast, Eva shares with us a story that transformed herself and how she approaches things with her client. What came out of the learning was a powerful technique that she uses on herself, her clients and NOW she is giving it to US. Please click the listen button for this episode on What the Imposter is really telling us?

 

We want to know: What ways do you see the Imposter appear in your life? Would this tool that Eva gives help you to tame it?

Doing hard things in relationships, how to do it in a loving way.

“But I believe in the spirit of all people. And I don’t think that people do things to hurt you, specifically.”  

How do we have the hard conversations with those we care about in a loving way?  

This podcast explores my struggle with being loving while saying something is not okay by me. As I work through this and I recognize again this is the work of boundary setting again…I talk about Brene Brown’s work and her talk about the Anatomy of Trust. She pens it with a lovely acronym we can all remember: B.R.A.V.I.N.G. The first letter, is my focus point, always: Boundary setting. I think it comes up in different ways to show me that the work here is never ever officially done. It is important to recognize that the more we grow and expand into who we are, the boundaries will be needed to held up by you.

The thing that anchors me in is when I realized this…. “It is not selfish to stick up for myself. To let others know that this is not okay.”

 

We must always remember that relationships are a dance. But sometimes you must take the lead and teach the other how to dance with you.We teach people how to treat us. And when you stop and think about how you are in relationships it is important to ask yourself: How am I showing or letting others know how to treat  me?

  

What are your thoughts on saying the hard things in relationships? How did you find a loving way?
