S05 Ep 09: The Spectrum of Emotions featuring Melissa Caldwell Engle

We’ve all been asked “how are you feeling today?” Sometimes we know how to answer and sometimes we don’t.

Being able to sort out our feelings from our emotions can be a challenge.

While emotions are related to physical conditions, feelings are sparked by emotions. Feelings are the product of your brain’s perception of things. So when we suppress or unleash our emotions, those actions can have a tremendous impact on our physical health and life.

Our guest today has spent her career helping people identify and cope with their emotions and feelings.

S05 Ep 08: Navigating the Drama Triangle featuring Rachel Graham

Drama and conflict are everywhere in our lives today. In the books, movies and popular media we consume. And in the relationships that make up our lives.

Sociologists and healthcare professionals often say that the dynamic roles people play in relationships form a drama triangle. Each of us can, and has, claimed one or more of these roles in our lifetime. Understanding how to overcome these challenges is critical in learning how to interact with others and in living the life you want.

My guest today has found her way through the drama triangle and lived to tell about it. Let’s talk with Rachel Graham about her journey.

S05 Ep 07: Finances from the Back Office to the Boardroom featuring Tina O’Banion

Let’s face it, the world of work is changing. Who does what at a company isn’t what it used to be.

And that’s okay.

Bringing in talent specific to a function is a great way to maximize people power. It is a way of ensuring everything in a company gets done and done well.

Our guest today knows what it is like to have to navigate a variety of organizations and their numbers from the back office to the boardroom.

Being able to know the difference between a symptom and a root cause, a trauma, is critical in understanding addiction.

My guest today has learned the hard way how to identify symptoms, understand the trauma and relate them to addiction. Let’s talk with Rachel Graham about how best to learn about addiction.

S05 Ep 05: Keeping Things Spicy featuring Taffie Lynn Butters

What if you could invent a business that was a model of collaboration and high quality and featured products that tasted really good?

What if I told you that a business like this exists and is also native Texan-woman owned?

The micro-batched and artisan food industry is more of a movement. Creative folks who roast coffee, brew beer, make bread, or create specialty condiments, are in it for the creativity as much as the profitability.

Our guest today had a dream of crafting specialty foods she loved and knew others would find tasty. Let’s talk with Taffie Lynn Butters about how she made her jalapeno dream a reality and does good at the same time.

What if you could have a combination of a life coach, spiritual teacher and therapist all rolled into one? My guest today is just that and has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and business people find their success.

S05, Ep 03: The Amazing Hidden Industry featuring Elizabeth Smalley

It’s been called the amazing hidden industry because billions of dollars are spent each year on it and the public rarely sees the output.

Just how does the business-to-business trade show industry work and who is behind it all?

Companies doing business with other companies rely on the face-to-face marketing and selling that trade shows offer. In the past year, over $13.2 billion dollars were spent on trade shows in the US alone with projections of 2 percent growth per quarter. A big part of trade shows are the exhibits and displays that companies rely upon.

Our guest today has spent her career building and managing relationships and exhibits around the world. Let’s talk with Elizabeth Smalley about what it takes to be successful and have staying power in the trade show industry.
