What do you do when you are Overwhelmed by the burdens of life and the weight of responsibility you are carrying?
There’s no denying that with any position of influence and Leadership, there also comes a great weight of responsibility. AND most often, the people who are carrying the weight for so many others, rarely have a place to go. You are the ONE everyone else is relying on; for all the answers, for the direction, for the permission. It’s often as it you are the pillar of strength that holds everything together and yet, inside - you often feel like you’re about to break.
These questions often come up:
How can I keep up this pace?
What fire is going to come up today that I am going to have to put out?
How can I get a break, let alone move FORWARD when I am always dealing with these issues at hand?
How can I possibly find balance and any kind of rest when my life is so busy/full?
Today’s episode is a must listen if you are in a position...
Today I’m joined by my dear friend and powerhouse of a man, Miguel Sanchez - who recently found himself in the midst of a shootout and his story of HOW he was called to deal w the shooter is just incredible.
We are getting raw and real (just how I like it!) talking about hostage situations, being under the gun (literally at gun point!), in the pressure cooker and how we choose to respond under those situations.
Whether you are in high pressure stakes at home, in the business or finding yourself in the midst of chaotic and aggressive encounters - this show is for you.
We are talking about:
- Moving diligently and discerningly through hostile situations,
- How compassion WINS & transforms situations rather than fighting back
- Supernatural Interventions are REAL!
- Processing Unresolved Anger
- Dealing with Depression & The Heaviness of Life
- Finding inner FREEDOM By letting go of outcomes
- The POWER of being a CHANNEL for...
We are hard wired for it biologically. Our bodies NEED it or we get sick + slowly die.
We are soft wired for it emotionally and spiritually. We’ve seen the mental health effects of isolation.
We crave to be seen, loved, appreciated, trusted and respected.
We desire to be wanted and understood by others.
It's IN us to love well and lead well.
It doesn’t matter if you are a CEO running a multimillion dollar company or a stay at home parent, we simply can not connect to anyone in honest, intimate and inspiring ways until we connect with ourselves authentically.
Connection heals our wounds, awakens our souls, and invites us into our most authentic, courageous, and integrated selves.
Today I am joined by Karen Hardwick, psychotherapist turned leadership consultant with a Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and author of “The Connected Leader” and we are talking about the Art of Connection + how to overcome the...
How do you KNOW what kind of King, Queen, LEADER you truly are?
HOW do we determine if we are succeeding or running this thing, this marriage, this company - off the rails?
I believe as leaders The ripple effect of our influence will have an impact on generations to come.
It’s easy to view ourselves through both rose coloured, delusional glasses - in complete denial about what we are actually leaving as a legacy…
or through really harsh ones where it feels like we can’t seem to do anything right.
Good, bad and everything in between - you are leaving a MARK on others and you have influence right now. The question then becomes - what INFLUENCE am I having on others?
Simply put the TEST is this: What is LIFE like for the people we have been entrusted with?
Is your kingdom thriving or struggling right now?
We have all been entrusted with some kind of kingdom - no matter how ‘big’ or ‘small’ it may seem in your eyes. Big and...
Today I am joined by my husband, Mark as we dive into the topic of INTEGRITY.
Not the typical definition we are all familiar with: ”to be honest + have strong moral principles, but the one listed here:
Integrity: The State of Being WHOLE or UNDIVIDED. Soundness. Completeness.
Together, we are unpacking the conversation around WHAT is required to get things in “ORDER” or a state of WHOLENESS - internally and externally - and WHY this is SO essential as we move from one season of life into another.
It is the real WORK that ensues as we step into more authentic versions of ourselves, as we commit to engaging in more powerful + meaningful work, and choose to strengthen our intimate relationships - growing together FOR something greater than us.
Most leaders would say they STAND for:
Playing Full Out.
Constantly GROWING and evolving themselves and others.
AND if we are going to live that way from a place of EXPANSIVENESS (not...
It's a new year and with it comes the optimal time to redefine, refine and upgrade our vision, standards and operating systems for the coming year.

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate one and love the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other.
You can not serve God and be enslaved to money”.
- Matthew 6:24
When we worship things OF the world, we become puppets of the world.
We become slaves to our business.
We become slaves to our schedule.
We become slaves to what we “created” that has now taken over us. We think we are “in charge”, but we know who’s really holding the reigns.
And it isn’t you. If you slow down, if you let go, if you RELAX and follow your heart, there is a deep sense that it will all fall apart.
So you keep choosing. And you are always in FULL choice.
It is our natural BIRTHRIGHT to be free men and women, leaders delivering our unique gifts TO the world.
When you are devoted to the DIVINE - serving GOD...
There is an old Sioux proverb that says:
There is so much truth in this.
I fundamentally believe you will NEVER be able to experience true success, fulfillment, peace, or lasting joy without making this critical 18-inch journey.
As high achievers we’ve bought into a program that teaches success is all about mastering our “mindset” yet I call total BULLS***T!
Yet, we refuse to take time to sit still, pull out, and go to the depths of where the true magic lies. We end up just fighting against ourselves the whole way through “willpower” and “force”...
