Business as the Adventure of Living with Katarina Nilsson By Heather Nichols...

Would it be fun for you to have your business be an adventure? Would that light you up more than the struggle and lack of joy that so many people choose in this reality with their own businesses? Perhaps there is something that you have always dreamed of creating that would like to be actualized now, or something that has been nudging you asking to be born? What could you experience and choose if you didn’t have to wait for anything or anyone else? Would you create what you truly desire if you never had to consider failure or giving up as an option? Come join Advanced Joy of Business facilitators Heather Nichols and Katarina Nilsson, two truly creative catalysts of change and expansion for a unique conversation into business and the creation of your life.

Teams that Cross The Highest Bar Not The Lowest Common Denominator By Maureen Metcalf Feb15

Teams that Cross The Highest Bar Not The Lowest Common Denominator By Maureen Metcalf...

This blog is drawn from a paper published by Jim Ritchie-Dunham & Maureen Metcalf, Co-hosting: Creating Optimal Experience for Team Interactions, Integral Leadership Review, November 2016. Jim and Maureen also recorded a Voice America Interview airing on February 14, 2017. Christopher, the CEO, walked into a planning session with the intent of getting his full team on the same page for how to move key initiatives forward for the upcoming year. His leaders were all in alignment on the core purpose of the organization and how to accomplish it. During the discussion, everyone gave unbiased input intended to move the organization forward irrespective of personal interest. Christopher was highly skilled at understanding the point of view of all participants and synthesizing the various points of view of his trusted leaders to create solutions everyone could support. Does this scenario describe your normal business meetings? How is it different? We would like to explore the idea that groups can leverage the skills of individuals across five key perspectives and create an environment in which each participant operates at his greatest level of contribution. We call this the alchemy of co-hosting, whereby the co-host, in conjunction with the participants, invokes a very different mindset and process for the team to function. The Challenge “Less than one-third of U.S. employees have been engaged in their jobs and workplaces [since 2000]. According to Gallup Daily tracking, 32% of employees in the U.S. are engaged — meaning they are involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace. Worldwide, only 13% of employees working for an organization are engaged.” – Gallup Much of our work is done within teams comprised of many highly effective and highly compensated people. We have found that these teams often function at...

Anybody’s Dog By Ariel & Shya Kane Feb14

Anybody’s Dog By Ariel & Shya Kane...

Anybody’s Dog – By Shya Kane An excerpt from How to Have A Match Made in Heaven: A Transformational Approach to Dating, Relating and Marriage As my wife Ariel and I boarded a small airplane in Ft. Lauderdale bound for Eleuthera in the Bahamas, I noticed the other passengers who would be flying with us. Some seemed to be Bahamians returning from shopping trips, while others were retirees. There was a family with two small children and I enjoyed watching their young boy animate his Spiderman action figure, jumping it from his sister’s shoulder, flying it from seat to seat. I also noticed a man in his mid–30s talking loudly to his wife. Dressed in casual attire, they were obviously going on vacation. Since there was only one seat on each side of the aisle, Ariel and I sat across from each other and this couple sat in front of us. The plane prepared for take–off and I watched Ariel gaze out her window, fascinated by the view from her little portal into the world. As I turned to look out of my window, I saw that the man who had been so loud was now fidgeting in his seat while his wife did a crossword puzzle. As we sat on the tarmac before take–off, I heard him say, “Joan, this flight is going to be just like our honeymoon. Look at this plane—it’s so small.” Immediately that got her attention. She anxiously said, “Do you really think so, Ted?” “Oh yes, the ride will be exactly the same—just as rough, maybe even rougher.” She put down her pencil and grabbed his hand. I could only imagine what the airplane ride was like after they got married but this one was actually smooth and...

When It is Dark, Turn to the Light By Marni...

Some days it is harder for me to make the “turn” to the light than others.I get sucked in sometimes by the fear and what could happen down the road.If I allow it to grow, my fear becomes anxiety and rules my life affecting my relationships, my parenting, how I feel inside, my self-care and more. So I make a conscious effort to be aware of the dark side and even befriend it.  Weird, I know. Yet somehow when I befriend it using energy healing and meditation, the powerful combination buoys me to move forward.  NO it is not always comfortable.  Yes sometimes I cry (though I cry expressing many of my feelings).  Does it always get better? YES. If you want help, just ask. More...

2017: A Universal New Beginning By Dr. Paula Joyce Feb10

2017: A Universal New Beginning By Dr. Paula Joyce...

I have been interested in the meaning of numbers since childhood. My curiosity was aroused when I realized that my family always gave gifts in multiples of $18 regardless of whether it was to honor the memory of someone or to celebrate a happy occasion. I didn’t think of it as a superstition. It was just an accepted, unquestioned part of my reality. Eventually I learned that in Hebrew, 18 means life and thus is considered a lucky number. This belief stems from Jewish numerology, called Gematria. Regular numerology, adds the numbers to get a single digit, 9, which is a humanitarian number or the brotherhood of mankind. Because 2017 adds up to the single digit of 1, the universe is at the beginning of a 9-year cycle. This new vibration affects us all, regardless of your own personal year. Please join us Thursday to learn what your personal year is, how the vibration of this universal 1 year will affect you and how President Trump’s personal year affects the United States and the world.

What if you are not as Messed up as You Think you are? with Guest Diva Diaz By Heather Nichols...

Many of us spend a lot of time feeling out of place. Perhaps it is a sense that we don’t quite belong or that we can never quite get things “right”, or even that we always seem to get it wrong. What if that difference that we be, what we and others have always seen as wrong, is actually our strongness? If we looked at some of these “wrongnesses” from a different angle, without judgement, we may see something quite different. That child who always annoyed adults by asking endless questions, who was always in trouble, may become the adult who explores and discovers a different way of doing things that may be kinder to the planet and the beings on it. Those who have created some of the most massive change on the planet are rarely those who fit in the box of this reality. They tend not to be the rule followers and may be branded as troublemakers. Many of them struggle in school and yet had brilliant minds, such as Albert Einstein. The traits that are creative and inventive do not always fit into a world where people oppose change and anything new. What if you are the changemaker, the one who is here to be the very difference that will create the change our world requires now? Diva Diaz, International Speaker, Author, and Facilitator, began her career in business and economic media, travelled the world meeting business leaders and heads of state, and yet, despite her success, could not shake a feeling of stress, failure, not being good enough and being wrong. In her search to create more happiness and ease in her life she discovered the tools of Access Consciousness. Join Heather Nichols on Creating Beyond Reality Radio as...

Something to Crow About! By Cynthia Brian...

“I raised chickens because I love that feeling of being in the country and living from the soil” Eartha Kitt With 2017 being the Year of the Rooster, I am excited to share my gratitude to the poultry that graced my life. Chanticleer may be the reason I am where I am today. When I was eight years old I announced to my parents that I wanted to be able to go to college.  Since my grandparents had barely finished sixth to eighth grades and my parents had high school diplomas, I would be the first person in my family to strive for a university degree.  It was decided that the only way this dream would be possible is if I financed it myself.  My brilliant idea was to raise chickens, sell the eggs, and enter competitions at fairs to earn the cash.   My first clutch of chickens yielded nine pullets and three cockerels.  My favorite rooster was Chanticleer, a beautiful Rhode Island Red, who followed me everywhere.  A great deal of time was spent with my brood of twelve as I began my farm fresh egg business through my membership in the 4-H Club.  When fair season rolled around, I entered Chanticleer and my hens in the appropriate categories including showmanship. Chanticleer and I won blue ribbons and were named Grand Champions in every competition at every event, including the California State Fair.  At fairs outside the county where I resided it was necessary to enter Chanticleer in “open division” meaning I wasn’t competing against other children or 4-Her’s but was competing with professional breeders and adult hobbyists. Chanticleer still won Grand Champion and soon I was being heralded as a “California Champion Rooster Raiser” and “The Chicken Lady”  (Of course when...

Rock Against Trafficking Event Live with VoiceAmerica...

MUSICIANS UNITE TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING, JOIN VOICEAMERICA LIVE FEB. 8TH 7Pm-11Pm Rock Against Trafficking is a non-profit organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service of the United States under Section 501c3. It’s simple mission is to amplify the power of music to generate the awareness and resources necessary to end human trafficking. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise on earth. That such an enterprise would be tolerated at all is amazing but for it to be the fastest growing enterprise demands a call to action. Under the leadership of Gary Miller, many classic and legendary stars have answered the call to offer their incredible voices to end human trafficking. After two years of painstaking effort, legendary and global superstars have come together to cover songs by Sting & The Police to raise money to fight the scourge of human trafficking. The album will be entitled Set Them Free. The organization is based in Malibu and is dedicated to building partnerships with other human trafficking charities to distribute the proceeds of album sales to the rescue, recovery and rehabilitation of human trafficking victims.

I struggle By Marni

What am I going to write about? The time I struggled and showed my ass by behaving like I’d lost my mind? There are moments I feel like I’m part of the circus or better yet starring in a sit-com.  My life is far from always being full of laughter though we laugh a lot in our family. I get tired of taking everything so seriously.  So I put on a pair of “TV glasses” and see what each situation I’m worried about, frustrated with, pissed about, and enjoying would like through the camera of a sit-com. I discovered this solution when Eli was an infant.  I was alone and changing his diaper.  He stuck one foot in poop, then another, then his hand.  Somehow it got on my hands too.  I was by myself at home.  And as a new mom, I began to panic.  How do I figure this out? How do I get my son and myself clean without getting poop everywhere.  Every idea I thought of resulted in me seeing my son ending up falling to the floor.  All the tools I needed were in other rooms,  The thought of carrying poop from room to room with a dog and three cats standing by to enter the fray filled me with more anxiety.   My body tensed and tightened.  And then Eli began to cry.  Big surprise, right?  And then as he wriggled in more poop, for a split second I imagined my reaction if I was watching this on TV.  What was the big deal? And I began to laugh.  And as I laughed and my body loosened, Eli calmed and smiled.  I have no idea how, but somehow I cleaned us both pretty quickly and easily.  And from then on, I pulled...

Mad As Hell And We Won’t Take It Anymore By Maureen Metcalf Feb01

Mad As Hell And We Won’t Take It Anymore By Maureen Metcalf...

This blog is a companion to an interview with Barbara Kellerman on VoiceAmerica “Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations” on January 31, 2017 discussing the end of leadership as we know it and how the current landscape impacts the requirements of leaders going forward. This interview is one of the interviews conducted at the International Leadership Association Annual Conference. This post was drawn from www.BarbaraKellerman.com posted on November 28, 2016 with permission. “One of the most iconic scenes in American film history is in Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 black comedy, “Network.” Peter Finch stars as Howard Beale, a network news anchor who’s about to be canned because of declining ratings. Beale starts to unravel while he’s on the air. He becomes visibly unhinged, screaming at his viewing audience, urging them to do what he’s doing – to shout at the top of their lungs, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” The line came to mind while reading today’s New York Times, which testified yet again not only to how furious people are, but to how hell bent they are on fighting people in positions of authority. Three examples: • South Koreans, fed up with their president, Park Geun-hye, have taken to the streets in the hundreds of thousands to protest her refusal to respond to charges of corruption and influence peddling. South Korea’s worst political crisis in decades shows no signs of abating. Ms. Park remains defiant. The people remain defiant as well – demanding that she either resign or be impeached. • The mayors of several of America’s largest cities have vowed to fight any order to deport illegal immigrants, even if instructed by the federal government to do so. Los Angeles’s Eric Garcetti, Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel, and New York’s Bill de...

What Your Mom Didn’t Tell You About Relationships with guest Kalpana Raghuraman By Heather Nichols...

So often we learn how to be in relationship by observing our parents.    Then we watch movies and read romance novels and these all form the relationship basis of what we create with our partners. We may allow our fantasies of the “perfect happily ever after relationship” to overshadow what we could actually create. Some of us may also choose to do the exact opposite of our parents and still find ourselves playing out old patterns that create more separation and discord than harmony. It is rare to see a relationship that is nurturing and honouring of both partners. One where both people can bring their entire selves to the relationship. Many of us have never experienced and rarely witnessed those types of relationships in our own lives or in the world around us. What if there is something else?  What if you could have a completely different type of relationship that does not fit into the conventional way it is done in this reality, and that could be created moment by moment?  What if you could have a relationship that makes you and your partner’s life greater, while simultaneously contributing to creating a greater world? Come join Kalpana Raghuraman and Heather Nichols as they explore definitely different possibilities that create relationships that are thriving, alive, creative and joyful! More...

How to live a confident and vital life!  By Catherine Calarco Jan31

How to live a confident and vital life! By Catherine Calarco...

  Interested in learning how to transform yourself at the speed of thought?  It takes only 90 Seconds!  What often blocks people from feeling capable in life and from having greater success with finances, health or relationships is how they handle unpleasant feelings. Psychologist Joan Rosenberg unveils the innovative strategy and surprising keys for experiencing the challenging emotions that lie at the heart of confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. On Humanity Evolve!, we Explore the link between confidence and dealing with negative emotions to live a full and vital life. The idea for Emotional Mastery™ emerged out of Dr Joan Rosenberg’s personal and professional desires to understand what makes people do the things they do – a question that dates back to her childhood days, watching and wondering why people treat each other in harsh and unpleasant ways. Out of her psychological work with women over the last 20yrs, Dr Joan began developing the foundational ideas for Emotional Mastery™. Three decades, tens of thousands of hours of clinical practice and the past ten years of neuroscience research have been distilled into an approach that radically changes people’s lives. Neuroscience concepts explain why this approach to change works. Health and well-being involve daily choices and daily actions and efforts. So for the rest of today and for tomorrow too, just start by being aware of your choices.  What choice will you make that supports your physical health?  What choice will you make that supports your mental and emotional well-being?  Now, Emotional Mastery™ can help you live a confident and vital life!

Rebecca Hintze: Healing Your Family History By Rebekah and Boyd Campbell...

In case you missed the live show on January 30, listen to the recorded archive!

Let Your Heart Guide You: It Knows. By Cheryl Esposito Jan30

Let Your Heart Guide You: It Knows. By Cheryl Esposito...

Cheryl Esposito welcomes Sonia Choquette, spiritual teacher, six-sensory consultant, transformational guide, & author of 19 best sellers on intuitive awakening & transformational capabilities. Our sixth sense, intuition, is our “first sense.” It is the conscious intelligence of our heart…many of us ignore its wisdom. We disregard our knowing in favor of the facts. Urgency addicted, we miss opportunities to create connections. In our busy-ness, is loneliness; a longing to live a meaningful purpose. We learn by doing, then by our un-doing. Sonia reached her un-doing: her brother died; 6 weeks later her father died; her marriage ended, her business unraveled. To regain spiritual footing she chose a pilgrimage, walking Camino de Santiago, 800km/500 miles over Pyrenees & across northern Spain. Walking Home: A Pilgrimage from Humbled to Healed is Sonia’s 35-day transformational journey into her heart’s knowing. Join Cheryl Esposito&Sonia Choquette to learn the way…into your own heart.

From Pain to Gain: Changing your perspective on the negatives of life, and using pain to your advantage By Dr....

Is there still pain lingering in the background of your being, even though you’ve freed yourself from the infliction? Have you been told who you should be, or how you should behave?  Do you feel like you’re walking on eggshells, but can’t seem to push yourself onto a new path? I have experienced many of these moments of pain in the past. I simply chose to believe lies for far too long, that disempowered me…That had me agreeing with others opinions of me that were UNTRUE. I’ve emphatically demanded that me, my body, and the universe, create and empower me, as I choose to be. I speak up for those that can’t yet. I live for the eradication of abuse off of this planet. So, let us explore and uncover, what YOU can gain, from the pain of the lies that were embedded in you, that blurred the definition of the TRUE YOU. What could life be, if you chose to change the perspective on the negatives of life, and used the experiences for your advantage? Let’s shift from pain to...

Leadership Evolution: Theory and Practice in Action By Maureen Metcalf Jan27

Leadership Evolution: Theory and Practice in Action By Maureen Metcalf...

This blog is a companion to the interview with Dr. Gill Robinson Hickman and Jorrit Volkers on VoiceAmerica “Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations” on January 24, 2017, focusing on leaders moving away from the cult of personality and toward supporting the mission of the organization by supporting followers. This interview was conducted at the International Leadership Association Annual Conference. In its simplest form, the term pracademics is a melding of the words practical and academic. Pracademics involves resolution of challenges with practical actions that align with “correct” academic theory and academic theory. John was the president of a third-party distribution company that provided a retail product and service for businesses. Throughout the course of his career, he had been very effective at spotting industry trends and shifting the organization to take advantage of those changes. This skill over decades created a financially strong organization. Unfortunately, he also had a blind spot in how he treated his people and his perception of his ability as a leader. He saw himself as the quintessential successful leader. As the world changed, he continued to lead from his stance of command and control. During his last couple of years, he fired a highly successful CIO and most of his team because he didn’t understand the need to make certain significant business changes. The CIO was heavily research-based and, therefore, discounted as too academic and not practical. In one instance, the CIO made a change to the hardware and processes that allowed the organization to avoid a multi-day outage of all technology support because he remained current on the trends and research. This leader’s forward-looking and research-based decisions and actions saved the company hundreds of thousands of dollars with just this single event. We all make mistakes and learn...

Creating Multiple Revenue Streams By Heather Nichols...

Have you ever had a desire for you or your business to have more than one revenue stream? Or did you decide somewhere that if you asked for more it would mean endless hours of work and no time to play, as well as  taking time away from your family? What if that none of that is true and it is possible for you to create multiple streams of income, from various projects, creations, and places and each would enrich and broaden and add to each other with ease? What if you could have infinite revenue streams that come from many different sources & directions that don’t require you to work more, work harder, and be responsible for all of the money coming in?  What if your business could have many, many different streams of revenue, and you could even have multiple businesses that have multiple revenue streams?  When we decide how something has to look, we eliminate the possibility of what could show up that could be even easier, more lucrative, and create even more ease in our worlds than we can imagine.  What if multiple revenue streams is about receiving more, rather than doing more? Come join Heather Nichols as she dives deeply into everything about business and money. Heather will share with you her tips, tools, and the questions she asks to create ever expanding possibilities in her own business and financial world. You may come to realize that you already have far more avenues for income than you were aware of, and that some powerful questions could change everything in your financial world! More...

Why Wear Someone Else’s Underwear By Marni...

Do you wake up feeling great and head out into your day only to find after a work meeting or a run to a store you feel off, cranky, sad, etc.? Does any room in your house or does your car feel off, cold or darker? If you are answering yes about any part of you or your space feeling off, you need energetic cleansing.  I want to help you and share some of my favorite rituals. I energetically cleanse myself and my home, often if not daily.  Whether you are an open channel or just unaware,  it is easy to pick up other people’s energy unknowingly not only in your own energetic field but also in your home, your car,  or any space you visit. If you wouldn’t want to share someone else’s underwear, why wear their energy? So what do you do to feel better? First begin by becoming more aware of how you feel so you notice when your feelings (physical, mental and emotional) change.   I begin my day doing a quick scan of me.  How do I feel: emotionally, physically, energetically.  If you don’t know the answers to all of them, it is okay.  It will come with practice.  Daily consistency is key.  Second cleanse your self.  Why?  Clearing a space without clearing yourself is like mopping your floor wearing dirty shoes.  How? There are many approaches for cleansing yourself.   Here is a short list.  You may like one or a couple; use them separately or together. There are no rules.,, feel what feels good to you. When you finish check in and see how you feel.  Don’t make this hard or complicated.    1- begin with water in the body;  Program a glass of water by holding it and setting an intention  Think and drink 2-Visualization: Create an...

Financial Prosperity: Set the Energy for 2017 By Dr. Paula Joyce...

Financial abundance is a gift of love from the Divine. As a child of Infinite Love, it is your birthright. All you have to do is remove the hidden blocks to receiving, know you are deserving and open the door. Since there are numerous layers of consciousness, from the surface levels of the conscious mind to the deepest levels of the unconsciousness mind, the process of bringing in financial abundance does not always happen immediately. Your commitment, patience, faith, trust and gratitude are the keys to nurturing your path to lasting financial abundance. More...

Are You Having any Fun Yet? Business Done Different By Heather Nichols...

Your business, like you, is unique – and may be asking for something completely different than what you have decided it might require.  What if running your business the ways that other people run their businesses or based on what you may have learned taking business or marketing classes might be a limitation to what you could actually create? Is now the time to step out of the way everyone else does business and try something new and different that might actually work for you?

Now that we’re finally embarking on the future with the exponential growth of drones and drone technology, what can we expect from these little guys, in and around our homes, neighborhoods and cities? As we are very much on the precipice of the drone revolution, it’s difficult to really grasp the uses we can put them towards. Just like we could not guess the sheer number of apps and the many uses we put them towards on our mobile device when the iPhone first came out, similarly we can’t yet get the full picture of how many ways we’ll use these newly opened up 3 dimensions now available to us. Today’s show is going to be an exploration of where we know we are going with Drone technology, where we think and where we hope it will go, and how all it may affect your home and community of the future.

Climate Change Battles; Where is the Collaboration? By David B. Savage Jan19

Climate Change Battles; Where is the Collaboration? By David B. Savage...

I am saddened by the constant battle for higher ground in the Climate Change Public Relations Wars. Where is the intelligence? Where is the collaboration? Where is the innovation? Where is the commitment? Our planet and our grandchildren deserve far better than this. Like the famous painting shown here, the battle rages on and while there are peacemakers, where are those making the necessary changes? Or in the energy battles, will we continue to cut down those with great technical knowledge and reduce those with a great social conscience? Like politics, in the climate discussion, the battles take the forefront while the war is being lost. It matters little who has a more acceptable or stronger social message, we must fix this mess. We must reduce emissions of all kinds. We must stop this dangerous trend. Here is what I experience today (click the links to websites as you read); 1) Before the Flood: Leonardo DiCaprio hopes his new film will inspire climate action Before the Flood article https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/oct/14/before-the-flood-leonardo-dicaprio-hopes-his-new-film-will-inspire-climate-action 2) Director of DiCaprio’s Before The Flood documentary ‘horrified’ by Alberta oilsands Horrified by Tar Sands http://www.calgarysun.com/2016/10/26/director-horrified-by-alberta-oilsands-in-leonardo-dicaprios-climate-change-doc-before-the-flood 3) this is where backgrounds, perceptions, and judgments divert us all into separate “camps”. Let’s move forward with additional perspectives. 4) Emissions by Country EPA CO2 Emissions by Country https://www.epa.gov/ghgemissions/global-greenhouse-gas-emissions-data#Country 5) The oil sands industry currently accounts for approximately 0.12% of global GHG emissions. (Environment Canada 2015) Share of Global CO2 Emissions http://www.energy.alberta.ca/OilSands/791.asp 6) The IEA forecasts that in the next 25 years oil sands production in Canada will increase by more than three million barrels per day, “but the emissions of this additional production is equal to only 23 hours of emissions of China — not even one day,” IEA on Oil Sands Emissions http://business.financialpost.com/news/energy/new-emissions-from-canadas-oil-sands-extremely-low-says-ieas-chief-economist 7) Cowspiracy...

Perception is Reality By Cynthia Brian...

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyler® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!  What is perception? Perception comes from the Latin word “perceptio” which means receiving, collecting, an action of taking possession with the mind or senses. Perception is an intuitive understanding of something, the understanding of an impression. Or is it, as a Google definition proclaims, a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression?” Is “perception” synonymous with “judgment” or “belief”? Does it have an unmistakable subjective, even illusory, quality? Join Hosts Asya Gonzalez and Henna Hundal as they dissect, debate, and discuss this mode of communication. In Health Rap, Alex Pawlakos examines how a person’s perception of their own health and health risks has important implications for their actual health.

Relaxation and Creation with guest Stephanie Richardson By Heather Nichols...

For so many, relaxation is synonymous with doing nothing, taking a break, or going on vacation.  What if, when you are being more of you and in your creative flow, you are more relaxed, and therefore more creative and productive?  What if relaxation is a space that allows you to accomplish so much more every day with a degree of ease you may have never considered possible? There are 3 different types of people that every business and every creative endeavor requires:  a creator, a connector, and a mover.  They have different gifts, different skills, and different capacities.  A common mistake that people make with business is in deciding that they, or their employees, have to do certain things in a particular way.  This can create stress, diminish relaxation, and get in the way of productivity. Join Heather Nichols and Stephanie Richardson for a conversation of “Relaxation and Creation” — a dynamic adventure into the energetics of creation and the nuances of business that will allow you to have more, create more, relax more, and be way more productive as a result!

Be The Boss Everyone Wants To Work For By Maureen Metcalf Jan16

Be The Boss Everyone Wants To Work For By Maureen Metcalf...

This blog is a companion to an interview with Bill Gentry on VoiceAmerica “Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations” on January 17, 2017 discussing Be the Boss Everyone Wants to Work For, his recent book for new managers. This interview is one of the interviews conducted at the International Leadership Association Annual Conference. Do you remember the first car you ever had? Go back and think about it. Was it a 2-door or 4-door? A hand-me-down or brand new? A small car? A truck? I bet you still remember the feel of the steering wheel and how your body sat in the driver’s seat. The pre-set radio stations. The stories behind the dents or scratches it might have had. Maybe even the smell it had. All the intricacies that made it your own. My first car was a 1990 Chevy Blazer, 2-door, red. My high school and college buddies would pile into it. I named it “The Major General” and I loved that car. It’s funny how “firsts” make such an indelible, unforgettable, deep-rooted impression on our lives. And for many of these “firsts” there is usually some sort of course or training to introduce you to it and get you accustomed to it. With that first car you had, I’m sure your Mom or Dad or some other licensed adult taught you, or maybe you went to a driving school or took er’s education course. Being a leader for the first time in your life can make that same indelible, unforgettable, deep-rooted impression on your life too. It can set the course for your entire career and build a foundation and reputation for the type of leader you will be. And like driving a car, everyone gets training and development for such an important “first” in their working...

Dream a Little! By Cynthia Brian...

  “Be at War with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbours, & let every New-Year find you a better Man.” Benjamin Franklin Resolutions, goals, a fresh start. Does January bring out your best efforts in wishful thinking as you embark on a new year or do you have the stamina and mindfulness to actually fulfill your gardening dreams? The famous English gardener and writer, Vita Sackville-West, wrote: “The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.”  Although Vita died in 1962, her gardens at Sissinghurst survive as a national treasure, thriving with seasonal beauty and tender care from volunteers. I was fortunate enough to travel the grounds last year and marvel, even in the rain, at the expanse of her horticultural involvement. Vita’s quote definitely describes my personal gardening mantra as my motto has always been “Failure is fertilizer. Throw the mistake on the compost pile to grow a new garden.”  In other words, mistakes, or malfattis as we say in Italian are always an experiment in something new…and maybe even a better creation. I don’t rest on my bay laurels but keep on striving. One of my favorite global excursions is to visit gardens everywhere I travel. Exploring gardens, great and small, is a wonderful way to expand one’s horticultural intelligence while gathering ideas for one’s own plot. At the top of my resolution list for 2017 I’ve designated garden hopping as a must-do. In the past few weeks, I’ve had numerous emails from readers of this column with questions, comments, and aspirations as well as ambitious dreams for gardening in 2017.  Here are ideas you may wish to employ...

Ecosystems And Biodiversity Consist of Individuals Not Just Concepts, with Dr. Ian Redmond By Eli Weiss Jan13

Ecosystems And Biodiversity Consist of Individuals Not Just Concepts, with Dr. Ian Redmond By Eli Weiss...

Ian Redmond says, “I am a naturalist by birth, a biologist by training, and a conservationist by necessity. But conservation for me isn’t just about saving species. On a larger scale, the planet needs us to save functioning eco-systems; on a smaller scale, we must also recognize that species are made up of individual animals. For me, it became personal when I had the privilege of getting to know individual wild animals in the wild… I can truthfully say that some of my best friends are gorillas, and I care passionately about them and the future of all life on Earth.” His career shifted from research to conservationist when one of his subjects was killed. His work on behalf of animals was recognized in 1996 when presented with PAWS Humane Achievement Award, and appointed O.B.E. in 2006 at the Queen’s Birthday Honours. More...

Communicating With Wild Animals and Your Pets with Amelia Kinkade By Dr Paula Joyce...

Amelia Kinkade is one of the world’s most renowned animal communicators. In 2002, she was invited to Buckingham Palace to work with Queen Elizabeth II’s cavalry and Prince Charles’ hunting horses. Amelia has been the focus of hundreds of articles with world-wide circulation, including The New York Times. In addition to television programs, like The View, she was the subject of a BBC documentary showing her work with elephants. This touches on her true passion, which is leading her Sacred Harmony Safaris in Africa and assisting organizations that rescue elephants, lions, rhinos and more. Amelia is the author of several books on animal communication, including Whispers from the Wild: Listening to Voices from the Animal Kingdom, as well as Straight from the Horse’s Mouth and The Language of Miracles. The founder of Ark Angel Society and The Language of Miracles Institute online, she has devoted her life to using her gifts to communicate with animals. Visit her at www.ameliakinkade.com Most of us think of life in hierarchical terms with human beings sitting at the top. Are you thinking: well, of course; we’re the most intelligent and the most civilized? If so, I want to challenge your thinking. Just suppose we are all pieces of a puzzle and the gifts of every animate being and inanimate object are needed in order to have true peace on earth?

How Do Leaders Influence Followers? By Maureen Metcalf Jan12

How Do Leaders Influence Followers? By Maureen Metcalf...

This blog is a companion to the interview with Dr. Gama Perucci and Aldo Boitano on VoiceAmerica “Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations” on January 10, 2017, focusing on leaders moving away from the cult of personality and toward supporting the mission of the organization by supporting followers. This interview was conducted at the International Leadership Association Annual Conference. We define innovative leadership as the ability to influence by engaging self, culture and systems equally. To me this means I am highly focused on influencing the people I lead and yet much of the leadership research focuses on the leadership qualities with the assumption that we are developing leaders that people want to follow. Is that an accurate statement? I grew up in a military family and my dad talked about “fragging”. Per Wikipedia: The term fragging is used to describe the deliberate killing or attempted killing by a soldier of a fellow soldier. I imagine most of us can imagine a leader we worked with that we did not appreciate. Early in my career I remember a well-meaning boss yelling at me for a minor mistake. Our culture was one where yelling was the primary method of reinforcing our leaders were serious. As a leadership consultant, I can’t imagine coaching my clients to yell more to build follower confidence. One of the key elements of effective leadership is the ability to inspire followership. In chapter 12 of Leader 2050: Critical Challenges, Key Contexts, and Emerging Trends, authors, Susan Cannon, Mike Morrow-Fox and I provided a list of seven competencies needed by highly effective leaders now and in the future. This chapter walks through trends that will impact the future and leadership mindsets and behaviors that are currently required and will need to be nurtured...

Tiny Homes By Jessica Stoner Jan12

Tiny Homes By Jessica Stoner...

Tiny Living is a movement taking place in many developed countries. It involves people making a conscious choice to live in small homes. Some choose this out of necessity, as affordability of housing in many cities and towns is increasingly becoming impractical. Others choose it for long term financial reasons, not wanting to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in their housing over their lives. We also have those drawn towards Tiny Living, due to the simplicity of it. Small homes equals small storage spaces, therefore less possessions. Many feel overwhelmed with our mainly consumerist society and the many things they own, have to take care of, move when relocating etc. Tiny Living results less “things” in one’s lives which comes with the feeling of Freedom and Relief. On today’s show, we will be chatting with two guests. A developer, Battistella Developments, building an inner-city micro-condo complex in Calgary, AB, and Tiny Home Alliance Canada,  an organization, that provides resources and assistance to those embarking on the Tiny Living lifestyle.

Leadership in the Age of Meaning: Power or Trust? By Cheryl Esposito Jan09

Leadership in the Age of Meaning: Power or Trust? By Cheryl Esposito...

Cheryl Esposito welcomes Dawa Tarchin Phillips, CEO, Empowerment Holdings and Director of Education,Center for Mindfulness and Human Potential,University California Santa Barbara. Is your leadership about Power or Trust? Dawa says ‘we are moving from the Age of Information to the Age of Meaning’- the requirements of leadership have transformed. Leaders who over-invest in their power are destined to fail. Their currency is fear. Showing vulnerability risks power loss. Leaders for the Age of Meaning know: power and influence comes from strength and flexibility. They invest in inspiring the trust and confidence in others. They develop people and create meaning in work: they are comfortable with uncertainty. Self-awareness is paramount. Dawa says “…your leadership stands and falls with the quality of your presence, the clarity of your mind, the health of your relationships and your courage in taking skillful action.” Join Cheryl Esposito and Dawa Tarchin Phillips exploring Leadership in the Age of Meaning!

Dinner with a Stranger By Ariel & Shya Kane Jan06

Dinner with a Stranger By Ariel & Shya Kane...

Dinner with a Stranger by Ariel Kane It had been years since Shya and I had eaten at an Ollie’s Noodle House. In the 80s and 90s we used to go to Manhattan’s Upper West Side to eat there. In those days we would make a special trip to have General Tso’s chicken or jumbo shrimp, a crunchy fried delight with a semi–sweet hot sauce, on a bed of bright green broccoli. Sometimes we would even bring Shya’s parents there, when they were still alive, to celebrate special occasions. Eventually that restaurant closed its doors and our lives moved on. At the beginning of 2014, as if coming full circle, we found a new venue to hold our Manhattan seminars that was back in the neighborhood where I lived when Shya and I began seeing each other. In fact, from our course room in the Skyline Hotel, which is on 49th Street and 10th Avenue, we can actually see the building where we had our first date and eventually lived together. As Shya and I began to reacquaint ourselves with the neighborhood and to explore the area for likely spots to have a bite to eat, we could tell that things had changed dramatically from when we had lived there. Where once it was difficult to find a decent meal, now there are ubiquitous Thai restaurants and plenty of places to enjoy varied cuisine from vegan to steak, Mexican to ramen. So it was with great delight when we came upon an Ollie’s situated mid–block on 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. It was late afternoon when we entered and since it was early for the dinner crowd, there weren’t many patrons. Even so, the waitress seated us at a table nestled in...

Being You In Business with Guest Dr Dain Heer By Heather Nichols...

Being You and Growing Your Business! If you are asking for growth in your business this year, are you also gearing up for more work?  What if you could actually grow your business and work less?  Or work differently? One of the many misconceptions we have in our world about business is that hard work and that lots of work equals more money and a bigger business.  When you get to a point where you are maxed out with your time and energy, but you would like to still grow your business and income—where do you go from there?  What if you could work and create your business in a totally different way that is a lot more easeful, relaxed, joyful, and fun?  What if the growth of your business was not totally on your shoulders? When Dr. Dain Heer discovered Access Consciousness®, he was a Chiropractor who was unhappy with his life, including in the areas of business and money.  He made a demand that things change, and he found Access Consciousness® shortly thereafter.  At the time, he disliked business and thought he was not skilled with it.  Once he started creating with the tools of Access Consciousness®, and facilitating classes all over the world, he realized that he simply had a different way of doing business that was unique to him—and that this is true for all of us!   What if you, allowing yourself to be more of you with your business, could actually create greater growth, income, and ease than you can imagine? Join us on Creating Beyond Reality Radio as Heather Nichols interviews Dr Dain Heer, an internationally renowned speaker and facilitator of consciousness, on how he has created a thriving and dynamic international business with ease.

Predictions for 2017 By Paula Joyce Jan06

Predictions for 2017 By Paula Joyce...

My sincere wishes to you for a wonderful 2017. May it be your best year yet. Some of you are wondering how that’s possible with all the fear and anxiety over world events, an increase in hate crimes and the inauguration of a new President of the U.S. with a cabinet that is signaling a dramatic shift in policy. With so much uncertainty and many anticipating the worst, we must be prepared for what is coming. We may not have control over the decisions of our government, but we always have control over our response. Our attitudes, thoughts, words and actions are our choice. We must find ways to keep ourselves positive and hopeful as we work to create the world that we want to live in. Lasting social change happens at the level of the individual, not the government. When we make continuous daily choices with integrity that are life-affirming, we contribute to world peace. Please join us Thursday for Psychic Dawon’s annual predictions, which is always one of my listeners’ favorite shows. More...

We Are the Ancestors of Our Future By Eli Weiss Jan06

We Are the Ancestors of Our Future By Eli Weiss...

So many critical efforts are happening right now! The CITES meeting in Bangkok, Thailand may well decide the future for elephants and rhinos around the world. The US. Wildlife Services are under fire for unethical killing of our wildlife- both endangered and non-targeted species. The USFW is working hard to keep up with the Environmental Protection Act and government policies, and we are facing global biodiversity tipping points everywhere we look. Our policies and politics and our everday choices do make a difference, both here at home and around the world. Despite all this, there is Hope, and it’s right beneath our feet – we just need to focus by each of us taking some small actions in our everyday lives to protect the future that our ancestors left to us and which we will leave to our children.

In this episode of The Soulcial Hour, we will explore the concept of “living on purpose” with guest, Paul Roy, author of the newly released book, It Happened on Purpose. We will delve into what it takes to define our personal purpose and then apply those same principles to defining one’s business purpose. Learn how to set goals (a fitting exercise for the new year or for whenever you’re listening) that will enable you to build your business and succeed…on purpose. Paul Roy is a business coach, customer experience expert and the author of “It Happened On Purpose: Value Yourself Without Being Full of Yourself.” He delivers keynotes and workshops on inspiring trust, building credibility and managing difficult conversations. An entrepreneur for most of his life, what Paul brings to the table is a vast experience of business. Paul has learned in his success that you have to begin with the end in mind. Success in business is so much more than generating more revenue. It’s about you running your business and not your business running you. Paul’s people skills and desire to succeed helped him grow business as a result of his entrepreneurial spirit. He is also a serial volunteer who embraces giving his time and money as a way to focus less on self and more on lifting others.

Season’s Greetings By Cynthia Brian...

“Winter is in my head, but eternal spring is in my heart!” Victor Hugo The festivities of holidays are almost over, winter has arrived, and our hills are once again the lush emerald that we, and the cattle adore.  Congratulate yourself on a year well-spent growing your own food and tending to your plants. Now it is time to put your gardens to bed and give yourself a bit of respite. With the colder weather, we are fortunate that lemons, grapefruit, and tangelos are ripe to help us stay healthy. There is still time to plant bulbs through the end of January for a late spring show. All bulbs need well-drained soil, full sun, or partial shade. Avoid planting in soggy soils where the bulbs will rot. Instead of lining bulbs up in a row, scatter them in clusters for a more natural look. Since deer, squirrels, raccoons, and rabbits enjoy eating many bulb flowers, experiment with planting narcissus cultivars, snowflakes, and snow drops (galanthus) as these repel the critters with their toxicity. Speaking of critters, our readers enjoyed the article on keeping unwanted guests from taking refuge in homes. From the response, it is apparent that this season of green has indeed brought the rodents to our doorsteps in increasing numbers. Excellent advice came to me from Jenny Papka of Native Bird Connections. With her permission, I am printing her edited suggestions here: “What you term as “vermin” actually misleads people, since rodents, skunks, wasps and even mosquitoes are necessary in Nature. Yes they are annoying in many cases, but it is important to be respectful of why they can actually be good. Rodents are like chocolate for almost all young wild animals, and often are a life-long food source for many. The...

CoHousing and the Future of Real Estate By Jessica  Stoner Dec30

CoHousing and the Future of Real Estate By Jessica Stoner...

In this episode of the The Future of Real Estate, we are exploring Co-Housing, an intriguing,  growing lifestyle choice.  Many  people are unfamiliar with the concept and are quite intrigued with the idea once they hear about it. Co-Housing is the concept of purpose built neighbourhoods and communities, with the intention of stronger community ties and a closer connection with neighbours. It is essentially a return to the traditional Village. We will discuss why people are gravitating towards this unique (for now) lifestyle, how it works, why it is in so much demand, and where you can find co-housing communities.   We have two co-housing experts that will help us understand more about it, in this thought provoking hour, as they share general information, as well as personal experiences living and developing co-housing communities.   More...
