Uncategorized Apr 17, 2024

Today's episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to drive meaningful change in their lives and the lives of those around them! Often GREAT leadership is born out of great pain and an unwavering desire to make a difference in the world around you.

Today, I am joined by Josh Shaver, COO of Logan Ag - husband, father of 5, and member of our Ag Leadership Summit. What I love about Josh is that he is a leader who not only invests in his own growth, but consistently and actively implements what he learns into his team and organization. 

With raw honesty, Josh shared the heart-wrenching story of losing his daughter Penelope, and how it shattered his world. Amidst the darkness and soul searching that followed, he found solace in faith and a newfound purpose, igniting a new fire within himself to make her life have a lasting legacy.

We dove into the nitty-gritty of personal growth, with Josh sharing the daily action steps he uses to keep him pointed in the right direction and why...

Episode 143: How to Talk to a Strong, Independent Woman

Uncategorized Apr 10, 2024

In today’s episode, I am unpacking how to effectively communicate with a fiercely independent woman!  I know because I was one for so many years and to this day I am still a woman on fire for my calling. I'll share personal experience of being a strong-willed, highly driven female and drop some insights on how to navigate communication with this type of personality. Note: while we are talking about women today - much of this conversation can apply to anyone in our lives who seems to be hard to reach, highly opinionated and not receptive to feedback much of the time.

I will share what’s often hiding behind this ‘persona’ and how to meet her (or anyone who operates from this place) in a way that meets them where they are at while also influencing the conversation to move in a new - more aligned way for both of you.

 

We are talking about what NOT to do as well as what to do instead AND I am giving you a handful of powerful language that shifts the...

Episode 141: DAY ONE vs “One Day” with Kyler Kropf

Uncategorized Mar 27, 2024

Today I’m joined by Kyler Kropf, CEO of Saddlebrooke Homes and we are talking about the life changing decision of making today our “DAY ONE” - instead of waiting until “some day” to get started or get things back in right order. 

 

Kyler is more than just an entrepreneur; he's a story of resilience, a testament to the power of belief in oneself, and an example of humble beginnings leading to extraordinary achievements. 

 

At the age of 19, with a vision far beyond his years, Kyler embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that was less about building sheds and tiny homes and more about constructing a life marked by purpose, peace, and prosperity. 

 

Coming from a small town in Arkansas, Kyler's early life was anything but easy. An 8th-grade dropout facing the limited prospects of a $250-a-week farm job, he saw a future for himself beyond the confines of conventional expectations. 

 

Without any formal education in...

Episode 140: When It Feels Like Rock Bottom

Uncategorized Mar 20, 2024

What do you do when you feel you have nowhere left to GO? 

When nothing you are doing seems to be working any longer - in fact it’s only making things worse?

When you want to burn it all down and start over but you feel like you’ve got to fight for your life? 

 

Today's episode is inspired by some heartbreaking conversations I have had lately with men and women who have reached out to me. I have heard things like

 

“I don’t even want to be alive right now.”

“If I didn’t have my wife and kids waiting for me at home, depending on me - I would be checking out right now.”

“I have nowhere left to turn. Everyone I once thought I could rely on has turned on me or left the building”

 

Guys, this is not ONE  person. This is multiple people and conversations in a very short time. 

Seems to be a theme right now. Many are really struggling, feeling trapped by old lives and challenges are hitting them...

Uncategorized Mar 13, 2024

How do you maintain a sense of balance when you’re constantly on the move?

Episode 137: Wanting vs Willing - The Character That Guarantees Exponential Growth

Uncategorized Feb 28, 2024

You may WANT it ALL…

But are you WILLING?

The great marriage, the self leading team, the guilt free time off and memories with your kids, the mental and physical fitness, FREEDOM to work on the things that actually light  you up. The laser FOCUS to innovate rather than be putting out fires daily… The intimacy with God. 

 

A SPIRIT that feels ALIVE inside you. My guess is You WANT it ALL. 

 

But the question I have for you today is - Are you WILLING to do what is REQUIRED to receive it, build it and multiply it? 

 

You would think that the “higher” you get the more willing people are to DITCH their OLD ways in order to make room for the NEW thing they want to normalize. the more willing they are to take the “risk”, LET GO and LEAN IN to the next evolution  of growth or depth, right?

 

Actually - what I’ve found is that often (not always) the MORE success and stuff someone has accumulated the...

I could not be here if I had not gone through this path of initiation. I call it the warrior's initiation, the journey from head to heart into a whole new playing field.

Episode 135: Body Upgrade: the Pros and Cons of Pushing Our Bodies

Uncategorized Feb 14, 2024

Today we are diving into our relationship with our Bodies, Health and Performance. 

 

What does it mean to YOU to be FIT? 

 

Everyone I speak to says health is one of their core values, but WHAT does that really mean?

Have you taken a look around at what ‘normal’ looks like lately? Medicated, stressed out, tired and burned out. Bags under eyes, bloated bellies and joint aches and pains.

 

All it takes is one look around to see how OUT of shape and out of integrity we are if that’s the case.

 

And what about all these ‘ultra’ fit looking athletes with not an ounce of fat on them - winning championships and crushing the competition. Is that a spitting image of health?

All those muscles. All those medals. All that talk of ‘no pain, no gain!’

 

I have been in the world of athletics, nutrition, weight loss and competition for over 3 decades now. AND If you would have asked me this question 20 years ago, my...
