S1-E18: Transitioning Out of Brokenness

What got broken?  This was a question I asked podcast guest, Chatela Monae, as we talked about why she is in the process of divorcing her husband.  What struck me was her determined intention to take care of herself during the process, first.  Something that many women don't do and as a result come out of their divorces bitter, fractured and afraid to trust a man again. In this, the last in our Recovering From Divorce Series, Chatela tells us a story all too common. The story of rushing into marriage thinking that the same smarts you bring to books will translate to relationships. That, because a man asks you to marry him, he recognizes your value and wants to marry you for all the right reasons. The belief that if you pray long and hard that somehow God is going to fix what's broken and save your marriage.Despite Chatela's pending divorce, each day she chooses to take the path of wholeness. In this episode, she shares how she is transitioning out of brokenness by:--Recognizing that the big emptiness inside of her was there before she got married and was not her husband's doing--Accepting that her beliefs about herself, love and men were shaped by people. Not by her.--Finding her esteem on the other side of her head: on the other side of making straight A's--Allowing her pain to come full circle--Understanding that an emotional void cannot be filled by another person...and much moreThings that made us go hmmmFrom Chatela"What I've realized is having low self esteem is also not understanding your worth and your value.""You can't take a broken woman and a broken man and have this wholesome, fulfilling relationship. It just doesn't work that way.""Who you decide to join your life with, they have the potential to bring you closer or further away from your life's purpose.""I never wanted a broken family. But I realized just because a family stays together doesn't mean it's not broken.""Ultimately, I can't be angry at anyone else for being them.""I think we genuinely do hear things from God, we just don't understand the context of what he's saying.""You are so infinitely special!"From Suzette"I don't believe submission means now I'm relegated to the deaf, dumb and blind section...that sounds a lot like slavery.""You were so enough that God, Your Higher Consciousness, the Universe, gave the ultimate sacrifice for you. Don't you think God would have concern about you being in something that is hurting you, harming you, causing you to question your value?""It's a difference in being loved by your dad, as his daughter, and how your dad shows up as a husband. Only my mom could be married to my dad. Not me.""But I think the grace is that you have grace to be with that person."References MentionedNetflix Movie starring Sanaa Lathan: Nappily Ever After https://theglowup.theroot.com/nappily-ever-after-sanaa-lathans-netflix-original-unta-1828094162Chatela Monae Website http://chatelamonae.life/Chatela Monae YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCULaMd6CZtF0K4_4FZBnVxAChatela Monae Instagram http://bit.ly/ChatelaMonaeIGMommie Mogul Group http://bit.ly/MommieMogulGroupEmail: hello@chatelamonae.lifeYou Asked? Good Men Answered! Virtual Summit Website www.goodmenanswered.comYou Asked? Good Men Answered! Facebook Page www.facebook.com/goodmenansweredAbout ChatelaChatela was born and raised by her mother in the small town of Gainesville, GA. Growing up, she took her education very seriously which led her to attend not only public but private and even boarding schools. This was an area she always excelled in, so that giftedness along with her hard work afforded her the opportunity to attend the University of Georgia. For two years, she was well on the route to medical school, conducting undergraduate research and even teaching science through a STEM program at a local elementary school. However, after some soul searching, she felt this was not her true calling and switched to fashion merchandising. Ultimately this change did not bring about the clarity she had hoped for and it has taken until recently to better understand what she's called to do in this life. While she was on maternity leave, after obtaining her real estate license, she went to work for an investment real estate firm. She started a YouTube channel for entrepreneurial mothers. It was during this time that she became clear about her passion. It was serving inspiration to other women so they can see the light within themselves. Just the same, she completely lost sight of the power within herself which led her on a very intentional spiritual journey. She has made many ground breaking revelations. One of which to separate from her husband. Another, to become a holistic health coach. Chatela takes it one day at a time. She's finding a new normal, intentionally pushing beyond her comfort zones and continuing to cultivate the light within so she can help heal the world one person at a time.Enoughness ReminderSays Chatela, "It's just so important to get to a place where you just do the inner work. And just realize you are enough. I just want to scream it from the rooftops. YOU ARE ENOUGH! And it doesn't take somebody else to validate you. Or to give you that validation. You have that within you. You are infinitely special."To dive more deeply into today's episode or to get answers to specific questions, join us at Enough Factor Connect at www.facebook.com/groups/enoughfactorconnect.Interested in being a guest?

S1-E16: When 'For Worse' Is The Death Of Your Marriage

Joining in our Recovering From Divorce Series is none other than Co-Host Dating Commentator Troy Vaughan. In their old school meets new school style, Troy and Suzette go in the ring to go round for round about this question: Why do folks exchange the wedding vows, "for better, for worse...til death us do part" and, with all that said, still get divorced? Troy and Suzette discuss:--Does single really mean single...period?--Do women feel pressured to get married?--Do most people exit marriage prematurely?--Til death us do part is not created equal--The 50-50 marriage proposition: 50% of marriage ends in divorce--Why talking is not necessarily communicatingThings that made us go hmmmFrom Troy:“What side of the ring are you on? Are you trying to get inside the wedding ring or are you trying to get out.”“If I'm in a relationship, if I'm dating someone exclusively, if I have a woman that I'm sharing time and space with, then I am not a single man.”“Some couples will divorce because of infidelity. other couples feel like, well, infidelity is bad, but it's not 'the worse.' ”“ There are a lot of happy pictures of a lot of happy couples that are miserable together, but they know how to do a great presentation on social media.”From Suzette:“We think sometimes that until death us do part means, you know until you transition until you pass until you die...But death can be whatever that thing is that is your deal breaker.”“Troy, do you think that as a culture, we're more in love with the idea of marriage than marriage itself?"“You got to retrain yourself, instead of being attracted to an unavailable man, find out what available men do.”References Mentioned: RING|SIDE, LLC Website http://www.weareringside.com/RING|SIDE, LLC Facebook Group https://web.facebook.com/groups/RINGSIDETroy Vaughan Facebook https://web.facebook.com/troy.l.vaughan About TroyTroy Vaughan is a rising persona in Atlanta, quickly becoming a notable speaker and entrepreneur. Pragmatic, electric, and relatable, Troy’s energy and point-of-view on topics germane to divorce survivorship and transformation, dating communications, entrepreneurship, and thriving with a chronic illness has made him a promising motivational speaker and thought leader. A former patient of St. Jude’s, he is a native of Memphis, Tennessee; holding a B.A. from Morehouse College as well as an MPH from Morehouse School of Medicine. His catch phrase “Achieve with a Vengeance”, a message of unyielding determination and staunch self-efficacy in the face of adversity, is both inspiring as well as galvanizing. He is the co-founder of a widely growing organization and online community, RING|SIDE, where men and women enter the ring to debate issues like chronic singlehood, marriage, and divorce.Enoughness ReminderWhen you get to a certain age and you've not gotten married, there is pressure to tie the knot. Everybody is asking you when you're going to get married. Even if they aren't asking you directly, it's in the looks they give or the hush-hush when you walk into the room. It's hard to hold on to feelings of enoughness when these actions alone question it. This is where you have to know that it's not who you are coupled with, but who you are that makes you enough.

S1-E13: Silent No More - How I Learned to Love My Voice

For years, Altovise Pelzer carried around a secret that she had kept concealed from everybody. No one knew, not even her mother. It wasn't until she felt compelled to share it with her daughter that Altovise went from silence to finding and loving her voice. In this, our second episode in the Recovering From Divorce Series, Altovise shares her story of molestation, being evicted from her home, going through a divorce and being a people pleaser. But most of all, she shares her journey of enoughness and the unexpected full circle that brought her face-to-face with her ex-husband. In this episode, Altovise talks about:--How she lost her voice and learned to love her voice--Owning her role in why the marriage didn’t work --How writing was cleansing for her and allowed her to recognize what she had to change inside--The importance of becoming a healthy example for her children so they know how to treat others and impact others in a positive wayFrom Altovise:“Motivation gets you over the hump, education helps prevent you from making mistakes someone else makes.”“ We have to understand people have bad days. People have emotions moment, but you have to be able to love them through it. You have to be able to understand their perspective. And once you understand then you can properly communicate with someone.”“The first time I had to say no was to me saying no to having a pity party.”“I can’t change other people, I can change me”From Suzette:“I would have thought it made her [your daughter] feel horrified. Now that I think about it, it probably gave her permission to share more.”“I am learning to say ‘no’ without having to explain it, without having to censor myself, or judge myself.”“ It’s not saying no to people per se, it’s saying no to the people pleaser.”“Your secret sauce is you.”Enoughness ReminderExperiencing a trauma in your life can render you silent and confused about your own value--what lies at the root of people pleasing. It may seem like you'll be stuck in that silence forever, but you can find and love your voice. If you are willing to open your heart, you can learn to love your voice, find your power and recognize the doors of opportunity being opened just for you.

S1-E17: Removing the Stigma So You Can Enjoy Sex

Good girls don't, bad girls do? Guess again! Good girls talk about sex. In fact, good girls want to enjoy sex too! This episode is all about sexual freedom a topic near and dear to our guest's heart. For Leah Carey spent 42 years mired in shame, laying on her back during intercourse, staring up at the proverbial ceiling waiting for it to be over. She didn't know she could ask for what she wanted so she endured what she didn't want.In this episode, you'll feel like you're at the table sipping wine with girlfriends Leah and Suzette as they have a candid conversation about:--stigmas surrounding enjoying sex and why they should be removed--the difference between a sexual communication coach, sex therapist and sex coach--things we don't want to admit to ourselves about our sexual desires--the limited and sometimes disingenuous information we've been fed about what normal sex looks like...and much moreThings that made us go hmmmFrom Leah:“For me, sex, it was never about my pleasure. It was about fulfilling my partner's needs.”“Oh, so what you're saying is that you can be a good girl and enjoy having sex?”“How much energy do you end up expending by trying to cover up this really essential part of you?”"I hear from women and men there is some fear around looking at the places in their sex lives that don't work."From Suzette:“For a very long time, the reason I didn't know how to communicate what I wanted was because I wasn't in touch with my body. You don't know what makes you feel good.”“And then you're afraid if you show you are having that good a time, the guy will go, 'Wait a minute. She's loose'."“How do you ask for what you want without offending your man?”References Mentioned: Season Two of Good Girls Talk About Sex at https://www.leahcarey.com/podcast/Leah Carey Official Website at https://www.leahcarey.comLeah Carey's YouTube Series at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4cY9QS6uiDpU3Y6EitmrWQYes, No, Maybe Checklist (free download for podcast listeners) at https://www.leahcarey.com/enoughAbout LeahLeah Carey is a sexual communication coach who helps women learn to communicate about sex so they can get what they really want in the bedroom - rather than just accepting (tolerating) what they're given. She is the creator and host of the podcast "Good Girls Talk About Sex." Spending most of her life being a VERY good girl, sexual freedom is a subject that is deeply personal to Leah for most of the sex she had was either boring or painful. But she endured it because she wanted the cuddling that happened after. She is now passionate about breaking the silence, fear and shame around women's sexuality and pleasure and redefining what it means to be a "good girl."Enoughness ReminderYou are enough to have sex and to enjoy sex. No stigma's. No shame. You were created to have sexual pleasure and to enjoy the having. What were your aha moments? We'd love to hear them!

S1-E14: Building A Legacy...One Diaper At A Time

According to Pew Research, the number of fathers who do not work outside the home is on the rise. It was up to 2 million in 2012 in fact! In this special Father’s Day episode, I’m talking with one of those unsung heroes. He’s music producer and stay-at-home dad Derrien Hinton aka “DH The Composer”. In our candid conversation, Derrien talks about the realities of parenting twin boys, how brand building and legacy building are intertwined, and the new definition of provider he's adopting...one diaper at a time.In this episode, Derrien and Suzette talk about:--The importance of legacy building in parenting--What it means to be great even when it looks like you’re failing--Overcoming “alpha selfishness”--How life doesn’t stop and you don’t automatically become a fantastic person just because you’re a dadThings that made us go hmmmFrom Derrien:“To be great, [I have to be] like, I use the term, ‘grateful in my pasture.’ ”“Being a stay-at-home father has taught me quite a bit about the other ways that my role in the household is valuable.”“When you don't have your accomplishments to fall back on, you see who you really are.”“I learned how much I compare myself to people. And I believe that comparison is the thief of joy.”“There's a level of alpha selfishness, to a certain extent, that I think that I had the capacity to embody.”“Be aware enough to ask for help, when you need it.”From Suzette:“It's when you're in these isolated situations, you know, situations where things didn't go quite the way you thought they were going to go that it really reveals what your definition of your enoughness is.”“Because you give birth to children does not automatically change you into this paragon of virtue and consciousness, [you] still struggle with the same things you had before."“I think what was very key, at least for me, was regardless to whatever mix ups, mess ups, you know, getting it wrong, whatever, at the end of the day, we could sit down and talk.”About Derrien HintonDerrien is a graduate of Howard University. Before graduating with honors had already been offered an analyst position with Johnson and Johnson. Despite being on target for different promotions and opportunities, he had a bigger dream than moving up the corporate ladder, a dream that was birthed when he was a little boy, taking wooden spoons and drinking straws with books to recreate a drum set. So in February 2016, he founded Verum Music Group LLC, specializing in music production, artist development, and management. In fact, Derrien aka DH The Composer has provided the soundtrack to my You Asked? Good Men Answered! Virtual Summit for the past four years. His music is even the intro and outtro for this podcast. But of all his accomplishments, if you were to ask Derrien what he's most proud of, he’d point to two giggling faces. Hayden and Preston, who just turned 2 years old in May.References Mentioned:Derrien Hinton Instagram at www.instagram.com/dhthecomposerDerrien Hinton Website at https://linktr.ee/dhthecomposerYou Asked?

Be aware enough to ask for help, when you need it, whether it be through family, whether it be through friends, whether it be through even your own spiritual, emotional, mental walks in life. Definitely be sure to ask for help, because I don't think we're built as human beings to navigate this Life by ourselves.” -- Derrien Hinton What were your aha moments? We'd love to hear them!

In the middle of abuse and violence, Veronica Pryor-Faciane decided enough was enough! In this episode, she shares her compelling story of triumph over incest and sexual abuse and how she found the strength to break free. If you've ever wondered if you'll ever break free from the guilt and shame of abuse and violence, Veronica's story will awaken you to your true worth and help you go from worrier to warrior. In this episode, Veronica talks about--The discovery of her true mission and how it helped her overcome and move forward from past abuses and violence--Where her determination came from after abuse--How she decided enough was enough in the midst of abuse and violence --How it's possible to reframe your thoughts and change your mindset in order to move forward peacefully--Her book, GOD'S DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, and how her upcoming city tour changes the conversation about mental healthThings that made us go hmm From Suzette:“Conversion is the conversion of the mind.”“You can’t give people what you don’t have.”“There has to be something more powerful inside of you that calls out for your breakthrough.”From Veronica: “I knew that there had to be more in life than just existing.”“Their why doesn’t matter to me. I matter more than their why.”“Don’t negate your story.”“Look at people at face value, but don’t look to people to give you value.”Enoughness ReminderIf you have been abused or violated, it is not your fault.

S1-E15: I had no idea how to overcome failure!

Tiffany Green and her husband were the picture perfect couple: smart, attractive and, by all intents and purposes, the quintessential couple. Even, their families adored each other. Theirs should have been the ultimate happily ever after story! Yet after 3 ½ years of marriage, Tiffany called it quits. Up until this point, she had never failed at anything but here she was with a failed marriage and had no idea how to overcome this failure! This third episode in our Recovering From Divorce Series chronicles Tiffany's journey to the real answers she was seeking and the real resolution her soul required. In this episode, Tiffany shares:--The false reality of success--How she overcame the shame and guilt of failure--One of the worst things you can do when someone is going through a divorce--The importance of embracing the loneliness instead of trying to avoid it--What her divorce taught her about herselfThings that made us go hmmmFrom Tiffany:“I needed to go through this feeling of loneliness to get back to the feeling of being okay.”“You realize God loves you more than this marriage, right?”“People normally shame [others] when they feel like there's a loophole that they're missing.”“But when you have done all the work - and you have owned your narrative, and you take out the shame, and the anger and the guilt, and whatever else you're holding on to - nothing you say to anyone or nothing that they say to you can really, like, take you out.”From Suzette:“So many of us stay in relationships too long, not because we don't know necessarily that it’s toxic, but because of the shame.”“When you're married, you're so busy giving out that you don't realize the person that's been waiting for you to pay attention is you."“I'm kind of struggling with calling it [divorce] a failure. Because look at who you've become as a result.”About Tiffany GreenTiffany is a native of New Haven, Connecticut. She earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut and a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Howard University in Washington DC. After graduating from Howard University, she joined the First-Year Success Center team at the University of New Haven where she was a counselor helping first-year college students adjust to the rigors of college.

Sadly, that happens all too often. At those times, the only thing you have is an inner knowing, an inner knowing that there’s got to be something better out there for you.

S1-E11: I Like Him, But He's Bipolar!

You're really feeling this person and think that they might just be "the one," but they tell you they are bipolar. What do you do? May is Mental Health Awareness Month and continuing the discussion is none other than my cohost, Dating and Relationship Commentator and Atlanta native Troy Vaughan. In this episode, Troy and I get real and talk about dating and mental health, the normalization of unhealthy mental health in the Black community, myths versus reality, and the importance of seeking a mental health professional at all stages of life.In this episode, Suzette and Troy talk about: --Dating and mental health: The irony that most of us face mental health challenges yet feel like dating someone with mental health challenges is "too much"--Normalizing mental health challenges and realizing that certain behaviors are not normal or healthy.--Debunking what mental health looks like within Black culture--The importance of seeking therapy and counselingThings that made us go hmmmFrom Troy:“If you're out here searching for someone who is completely flawless and perfect, then you're going to be searching for a long time.” - Troy Vaughan“If you're dating enough, you will find yourself sitting across the dinner table from someone who may have a mental illness, whether they’ve been diagnosed or not.” - Troy Vaughan“We need to begin to recalibrate our belief system when it comes to how we choose to deal with mental illness and the stigma regarding mental illness.” - Troy Vaughan“Don't wait until something happens to go to a medical doctor or counselor, or whatever the case may be. If you feel something isn't quite right, talk to someone, at least be transparent with someone who's a professional.” - Troy Vaughan“You can still attend church and also make use of a professional counselor.” - Troy VaughanFrom Suzette:“We all have gone through situations that have caused us to not be as mentally healthy or whole.” - Suzette Vearnon“One in five children struggle with their mental health and 70% of adult mental illness begins during childhood or adolescence, including depression, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders.” - quoted from article by Suzette Vearnon“When it comes to mental health, a lot of us are missing subtle cues that our children are not okay.” - Suzette Vearnon“We are not mental health professionals, but we experience mental health every second of our lives.” - Suzette VearnonReferences Mentioned: "Top 11 Myths About Mental Health" at https://www.mendthemind.ca/stigma/top-11-myths-about-mental-illnessRING|SIDE, LLC Website http://www.weareringside.com/RING|SIDE, LLC Facebook Group https://web.facebook.com/groups/RINGSIDETroy Vaughan Facebook https://web.facebook.com/troy.l.vaughanEnoughness ReminderTo a certain extent, all humanity struggles with mental health challenges. All it takes is one traumatic life circumstance and your mental health is compromised. There are many women and men walking around with undiagnosed mental illness and oftentimes you don't know until you start dating. What's important, especially if you really like the person or are really attracted, is to not allow that to seduce you into assuming responsibility for that person. Determine your boundaries beforehand and hold the individual accountable to taking appropriate self care. If they choose not to, you have to be prepared to take your heart back and walk away. About TroyTroy Vaughan is a rising persona in Atlanta, quickly becoming a notable speaker and entrepreneur. Pragmatic, electric, and relatable, Troy’s energy and point-of-view on topics germane to divorce survivorship and transformation, dating communications, entrepreneurship, and thriving with a chronic illness has made him a promising motivational speaker and thought leader. A former patient of St. Jude’s, he is a native of Memphis, Tennessee; holding a B.A. from Morehouse College as well as an MPH from Morehouse School of Medicine. His catch phrase “Achieve with a Vengeance”, a message of unyielding determination and staunch self-efficacy in the face of adversity, is both inspiring as well as galvanizing.

Her parents raised her as independently as possible nonetheless. She signed her 1st record deal as a member of a trio girl group at the age of 15.After about 5 years, everything came to an end due to issues within the group and financial and contractual issues with the management.

S2-E08: It's Okay To Not Be Okay

Despite loving what you do, being constantly told how to sit, how to stand, whether you’re wearing the right lip color or if you’re too dark for a role can take its toll. Continuing our Mental Health Awareness Series is none other than Theatre and Film Actress Germôna Sharp.  In our honest talk, Germôna talks about her journey of enoughness and how she learned it’s okay to not be okay.Germôna loves the arts!  With a grandmother who is also an actress in L.A. and a grandfather who is a singer and actor in Atlanta and both sides of her family being lovers of entertainment, it was only right that Germôna took her chance at being center stage. She has been singing since she was three years old and acting since she was twelve, with her very first acting role being in her high school production of “...For Colored Girls”. She has graced the stage in many different theatre productions such as Blood Done Sign My Name (RLT), Sister Act: The Musical (RLT), Caroline, or Change: The Musical (JTP), Steel Magnolias, and many more.She is also a film actress and works closely with an up and coming production company in the NC area, EazeDay Entertainment.But behind all the perfect fitting clothes and immaculate makeup, Germôna still struggles with the names she was called in middle school where she was severely bullied and mocked.  Though she made great strides in her adulthood, the toll of it leaked out as anger and an over-encompassing need to “look the part.”  This led to depression, isolation, stress and stagnation.  It wasn't until she got a wake up call from an unexpected place that she woke up to the support around her and discovered a deeper passion. CONNECT WITH GERMỐNAGermôna Sharp Actor To get more information about her upcoming productions, roles, community events,email Germona at lamontclifffoundation@gmail.comKUTALENT AGENCY919.785.1223Terri@kutalentagency.comJulie@kutalentagency.comGermôna’s Instagram Page:https://www.instagram.com/germona_/Lamont Cliff Foundation Instagram Page:https://www.instagram.com/lamontclifffoundation/EazeDay Entertainmenthttps://www.facebook.com/eazedayent/COMING SOONDO YOU SPEAK MALE: THE 5 C'S OF UNDERSTANDING A MAN'S LANGUAGE!Details at https://bit.ly/hislanguage LET SUZETTE HELPDuring this coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, she will be offering coaching sessions on a sliding fee scale.  So if you need someone to talk with who will not judge you but will be a source of encouragement and a reminder that who you are, whose you are and why you are is more than enough to overcome  your current circumstances, here's how to get in contact with her:For first-timers, the first hour of our session is free.  Just click http://www.calendly.com/suzettevearnon to get on my calendar.  If you do not receive notification immediately, send me a direct email at mailto:suzette.vearnon@suzettesolutions.com and I'll confirm within 24 hours.For return customers, click bit.ly/slidingfeeform.  Provide your first name and email where you'd like the information sent and you'll get my sliding fee scale breakdown.  Make sure to check your email and your spam folder for an immediate response.  OTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO CONNECT WITH SUZETTEGet on her mailing list:  bit.ly/ssviplistFacebook:  www.facebook.com/yourcoachsuzetteTwitter:  www.twitter.com/yourcoachsuzettInstagram:  www.instagram.com/yourcoachsuzetteWebsite:  www.suzettesolutions.comEmail:  suzette.vearnon@suzettesolutions.comSUBSCRIBETo get notifications of new episodes or to dive more deeply into today's episode, subscribe, post your questions and comments.  Suzette responds to the questions and comments personally.  And while you're at it, leave a review. Thank you for listening!

S1-E24: Nothing To Prove, Everything To Be

Do you feel compelled to defend yourself when you feel you've been done wrong? When you enter a new situation, do you feel you need to prove yourself? In this, her 24th episode, Suzette concludes Season 1 with an honest examination of what motivates our responses.Sharing from her own experience, Suzette raises the most important question: WHO ARE YOU? Not the you who feels threatened or the you who feels he or she has something to prove, but the you whose presence requires no validation. In her thoughtful and penetrating style, Suzette explains why: --the who behind who you are has nothing to prove, but everything to be--the invitation to the room qualifies you to be in it--the struggle isn't with others as much as it is with yourself--writing a different definition of what makes you enough is essential...and much moreMore About SuzetteOn March 17th, Suzette started her podcaster journey. At the time, she knew nothing about podcasting except she wanted a platform where she could speak to a broader audience. Everyone who has downloaded, subscribed and commented have been an integral part of her journey. Together, you've downloaded this podcast 943 times! Not too shabby for Season One!She's taking a break for a few months, but look for Season Two the Spring of 2020. In the interim, she and her team will be talking to subscribers and listeners to hear about what they enjoyed, what they didn't, and what topics they'd like to see featured as well as exploring other ways to make this podcast even more relevant. Things that made me go hmmm"I created this situation because I didn't know my value so I let my insecurity bully me into submitting.""When you're trapped in a mindset of performance, you don't really know the difference between the performer you and the Being you.""You are not what you do, you are the brilliance behind it.""When someone asks 'who are you,' it's how you answer the 'I am' that makes all the difference." "The struggles as well as the celebrations are to help you to get clearer and clearer about the everything that you bring into this life space.""If Life offers you the seat, Life has already decided that you belong. It's your work to find out why Life offered you the seat. Because if you don't do the work to find out why Life offered you the seat, you will not fully own your space."References MentionedIndia.Aire song "I Am Light" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OL-gxfx2QtY"What follows I am is what will be."--Joel Olsteen (His book, The Power of I Am, https://www.amazon.com/Power-Am-Words-Change-Today/dp/0892969989)Enoughness ReminderYou don't need to prove your enoughness, you simply have to own it.
