Ep053 – The Seedstalk of Courage

Pursuing a dream is like living a fairy tale. You feel hopeful, you feel scared, you feel challenged. You seek help, you receive help (sometimes from unlikely sources). You keep believing in the magic. And of course, you live happily ever after.

In this week’s episode, I take a look back at the first 15 months of creating my dream life.

Meet my Master Gardener (aka business coach)

Talking with business coach Priscilla Hansen Mahoney, Blazing Trails Coaching, was just what I needed to try building my home-based business again. She understood my fears, my doubts, and my concerns. She helped me expose those fears and face them with a courage I was afraid to show. (Ironic, isn’t it?) She encouraged me to embrace my doubts and address my concerns. She told me what I’ve told so many others: You can do this! If you are interested in starting or growing your business, and want/need some guidance, give Priscilla a call.
You can also find her on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BlazingTrailsCoaching/

Ep048: All or Nothing? How About Something In-Between?

Too often people wait for conditions to be perfect before they take action.

They say things like, “I wanted to go on a bike ride this weekend, but it’s supposed to rain,” or “When Sally finishes her big work project, we’ll try to get the gang together,” or “I’d love to work on craft projects, but I just don’t have the space to leave things set up.”

In this week’s episode, I challenge listeners to remove “but” and “when” from their thought process when making plans to enjoy their favorite activities or relationships.

Ep047: When Motivation is Lacking

No motivation to act

Too many times I hear people talk about things they want to accomplish (eating healthier, exercising regularly, journaling daily, paying off debt, etc.) but they are waiting for that burst of motivation to propel them forward.

In this week’s episode, I talk about motivation, why we need to break free of that mindset trap, and how to move forward even when motivation is lacking.



If you would like to improve one or more aspects of your health (spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, financial, or relationships), but are waiting to feel a strong pull of motivation, I encourage you — No. I challenge you! — to participate in my FREE 10-day Healthier Habits Starter Program.

You CAN start living a healthier life today! BUT, you have to stop thinking about it, and start doing it.
