10:01

  • Taking decisions faster
  • Focusing on what is good
  • Applying positive pressure

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

People often dwell on their decisions for too long, worrying about whether it’s the right decision. But this worry paralyzes us from taking rapid action that can actually transform our lives. Instead of taking so much time to make a decision, you need to treat each decision as an experiment and be willing to correct. Every right decision will make up for several wrong ones, the key is to just make more decisions.

Show Notes:

“Don’t get your hopes up” is one of the worst sentences in the English language. Not only is it just rude, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you don’t get your hopes up, if all you focus on is feeling negative, then you’re going to have a bad time. So, we implore you: get your hopes WAY up, dream like it’s going out of style, and make tomorrow exactly what you want it to be.

As the founder of Business Chicks—a thriving global community that operates on two continents in eleven cities – her team produces more than 100 events annually, with past speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brené Brown, Diane von Furstenberg, and Kate Hudson, among others - and as a committed philanthropist has now raised more than $13million for various non-profits.

Emma is also the author of the bestselling book Winging It (released September 2020). It's endorsed by Seth Godin, Mark Manson, Elizabeth Gilbert, Arianna Huffington and many more and builds a beautiful case for going after your dreams without having a perfect roadmap to get you there.

Emma is a mom to six kids (aged 11 through to four months) and recently live-streamed the homebirth of her sixth child from her living room with tens of thousands of viewers tuning in to watch his peaceful arrival. She doesn’t believe in work/life balance, preferring to advocate for a full life where people are in constant evaluation of what they truly want from it.

Guest Bio:

Amy Lacey is the founder of Cali’flour Foods.   She believes that eating healthy should taste as good as it makes you feel.  Most people are tired of sacrificing flavor for health.  That is why she developed the first no mess, no-stress cauliflower pizza crust that actually satisfies your cravings so you can maintain your healthy lifestyle! 

Amy is one of the 23.5 million people suffering from an autoimmune disease.  After being diagnosed with lupus in 2010, she realized she needed to change her eating habits.  With that in mind, she set out to recreate foods that no longer worked for her. She measured the success of the products by her inflammatory reactions and finally came up with healthy and delicious alternatives to some of her favorites.  From that journey, Cali’flour Foods was born. 

Amy is a national best-selling author of Cali’flour Kitchen and The Clean Switch.     Her Cali’flour products have won numerous awards, have been featured on the Dr. Oz show, in Food & Beverage Magazine, GQ, and OK! magazine and as one of “Whoopi’s Favorite Things” on The View.  Cali’flour Foods is a two-time Clean Eating magazine award winner.

Amy’s future business plans include working with budding entrepreneurs to develop and launch their food products and continuing to mentor girls and young women.  When she is not hard at work, you can find Amy enjoying the great outdoors with her family.  Amy lives in Melbourne, Florida, with her husband, two sons, and daughter.

The number one question we get from the hundreds of entrepreneurs we have coached over the past several years is “How do I know if my idea would make a good business?”. You can have a ton of good ideas—and they could all be equally good—but you can only ever chase one at a time. You have to invest into one so far and so deep that it has enough momentum to run on its own so you can invest the momentum, the income, and the lessons learned from that into the second idea. We’ve developed a framework for evaluating your ideas to find out which is the right fit before you dedicate your all to it.

Show Notes:

On today’s “quickie” episode, I have a special guest, Jenn Kennedy! Two years ago, she didn’t know what the word “entrepreneur” really meant, but she became one through the process of helping people. As she went through the journey of losing weight and improving her health, she documented the whole process and was hit up with questions constantly. Before she knew what she was getting into, she had a coaching business. We’re going to share five tips that entrepreneurs need to do to up-level in their business.

Guest Bio:

Jenn Kennedy is an entrepreneur, coach, speaker, and CEO of Impact to Income. 

Jenn became an entrepreneur simply by helping people. As she documented her health and weight loss journey, women started asking her for help. She started teaching and helping women finally lose weight and heal their relationship with food. Before she knew it, she had a business. As her nutrition coaching business quickly grew, she closed the door to her 8-year career as an elementary teacher and principal in training.

Just over a year later, after watching online coaches struggle with making the money and impact they were meant for, she built Impact to Income. Now, she teaches and mentors coaches and entrepreneurs to grow their impact, scale their income as a result, and live the life they dream of.  

In just a year, she has scaled her business to a half a million dollars and has impacted hundreds of men and women across the world. The foundation of her success continues to be built on her bulletproof mindset, her relentless drive to impact people’s lives, and her daily practice to have more fun.

She fully believes that we are all here to create an impact in the world. She’s on a mission to guide men and women to live in their true personal and financial power and live the life they dream of.

Show Notes:

Whether you love or hate the show Real Housewives, you have definitely heard of it. And that probably means you’ve heard of today’s guest Teddi Mellencamp. We met at a personal development conference a few years ago and I learned about her health program, ALL IN by Teddi. Her current profession as an accountability coach and fitness influencer arose from her desire to help others achieve healthier lifestyles after discovering a tried-and-true way to unleash your best self. We talk about the different things that she’s dealt with while filming the show, the different life challenges we are facing right now, and how you can have a strong backbone and get clear about what’s important right now, and how to keep moving forward no matter what.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How is the pandemic we’re going through now going to affect the way you make decisions moving forward?

  • Does your mind compartmentalize all of your accomplishments?

Guest Bio:

Born in Bloomington, Indiana and raised in Hilton Head Island, SC, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave made a name for herself at a young age as a competitive equestrian, later incorporating that fierce competitive drive and spirit into her current profession as a much sought out lifestyle and accountability coach, as well as tackling the ups and downs of filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Teddi’s love of horses and the sport of equestrian started at the age of 4, as she soon found herself traveling all around the country to compete in various prestigious horse shows with the venerable Don Stewart Stables. She quickly rose through the ranks to be awarded several national championships, culminating with Teddi winning the stakes class at Madison Square Garden in her final year competing as a Junior.

Teddi relocated to Los Angeles at 17 where she worked at CAA and UTA before returning to her passion of equestrian riding and training. In 2009, she was named World Champion Hunter Rider winner as an emerging professional. But after having kids, Teddi went from professional to amateur and currently competes on horses owned by Balmoral Farms; in 2016 she was named Reserve Champion World Champion Hunter Rider in the Adult Hunters category.

Teddi’s current profession as an accountability coach and fitness influencer arose from her desire to help others achieve healthier lifestyles after discovering a tried-and-true way to unleashing your best self. Struggling with a fluctuating weight her entire life, Teddi found after her second pregnancy and 80lb gain that the weight didn’t come off as easily as it once did. Her riding career had taken a backseat to motherhood and the life/ work balance just wasn’t there for her. She realized that she needed to change her lifestyle, find her passion and really hold herself accountable for her actions to develop a healthier way of living.

All IN by Teddi first started out as Teddi reviewing various fitness classes in the Los Angeles area on Instagram. As she worked to get fit, her following grew and her purpose quickly morphed into Teddi giving fitness advice and urging her followers to become the best versions of themselves possible through self-accountability. While not a certified fitness instructor or nutritionist, Teddi developed a program that gets results for anyone and works with her clients to see them through their struggles to become happier and healthier. All IN has become the next burgeoning lifestyle brand, with Teddi now managing 40 coaches, all of whom have gone through the program, with a roster of clients across the US and Canada in the 1000s and a continual waitlist. More information on All IN can be found at www.allinbyteddi.com

When she’s not being a super mom or changing lives, Teddi can also be seen on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with her third season due to air this spring. After one season on the show, Teddi instantly connected with the fans due to her strength, positive attitude, and willingness to be open and truthful with her struggles. Not only did this help with her growing business, but it also led to Teddi’s rise as a social media influencer, going from 10K Instagram followers to over 500K in the course of a year, and now over 800K.

In 2019 Teddi launched her podcast with iHeartRadio, Teddi Tea Pod. Each episode centers around a different topic that Teddi deep dives into, from open marriages to motherhood and relationships, featuring experts on the subjects to answer all of her burning questions.

Teddi and her husband Edwin Arroyave, CEO and founder of Skyline Security Management, Inc., live in Los Angeles and have three children: daughter Slate, son Cruz, and in February welcomed a baby girl. Teddi is also a stepmother to Isabella, Arroyave’s daughter from a previous relationship.

Resources:



Show Notes:

The models that we’ve had in the past for loving ourselves, loving our family, and loving our lives have completely changed. In her latest book, “Rethink Love,” Monica Berg challenges everything we know about our belief systems around love and relationships. The more perspective that you can have, the more powerful you are in your life and the more connected you feel.

 

Question Highlights:

  • Are you using a lot of the tools you came up with in your first book?
  • What if people feel like fear is a part of their personality?
  • Why did you focus on love for your latest book?
  • When do you know that it’s time to leave a relationship?
  • How do you move from fear to possibility?

 

Guest Bio:

Monica Berg is a CHANGE JUNKIE and she wants to challenge the way you think about EVERYTHING.

In her first book, FEAR IS NOT AN OPTION, she challenged readers to eradicate fear from their lives. In her latest book, RETHINK LOVE, she uses years of personal experience teaching and counseling to eradicate false belief systems around love and relationships.

Monica is a mother, wife, sister, teacher, and friend, who integrates all that she is into her mission and as Chief Communications Officer of The Kabbalah Centre, she integrates her personal mission with this ancient wisdom.

Monica was born and raised in Louisiana before moving to Los Angeles. At 17, she began studying Kabbalah and knew very quickly that this was her path, eventually leading her to the serendipitous meeting of Michael Berg, her now-husband of 21 years. 

During her teen years, Monica developed an eating disorder that grew into a five-year battle with anorexia and body dysmorphia. With her recovery came a better understanding of the disease and a passion to help others. 

However, it wasn’t until her second child was born that Monica had to reevaluate her own belief system. Her son, Joshua, was diagnosed with Down Syndrome shortly after his birth, which was life-changing for Monica and her family. The diagnosis led to Monica’s credo, “In change, there is great power,” and the choice to believe in the beauty and potential of who her son could become and subsequently who she could become. 

Monica aims to challenge people and encourages them to reframe what they think they know and she’s seen the results of rethinking first hand. Monica learns from her students as often as they from her. “I’m inspired by everyone that I come into contact with,” Monica says, “Everyone has something valuable to share and we can derive meaning from each encounter.”

When she’s not writing, lecturing, or working with students at the centre, Monica contributes her time and voice to Habitat for Humanity and Something For Kelly. While she is passionate about helping all people feel empowered, she is especially committed to organizations that support women, particularly those with a mission focused on overcoming eating disorders.

Monica currently resides in New York City with her husband Michael and their children David, Joshua, Miriam, and Abigail.  Her second book, Rethink Love,  will be out on February 11, 2020.

Guest Bio:

Alisa Vitti is a functional nutritionist, women’s hormone expert, best selling author and founder of floliving.com. Also known as the “hormone whisperer,” Alisa has opened up the conversation about menstruation while helping and inspiring women to tap into their inner wisdom and feel good all month long.

As a student at John Hopkins, Alisa Vitti was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS. When her physicians gave her only band-aid solutions to manage it, she realized that she needed a more organic solution.  Determined to take matters into her own hands she turned to food and functional nutrition to get to the root of her issues. It worked, and on many levels. After healing herself of cystic acne, excess weight, infertility, and normalizing her period, Alisa made it her mission to help other women to do the same.

Alisa founded FLO Living in 2002. At that time, it was called Laughing Sage Wellness, and it was a brick and mortar women’s health center in New York City. Alisa’s classes and one-on-one coaching taught women how to achieve regular periods, how to heal from menstrual disorders such as PMS, PCOCS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and fibroids, and how to optimize fertility and heal symptoms of perimenopause or premature hormonal aging. Alisa created the WomanCode System to teach women how to balance their hormones with food and lifestyle changes.

Demand for the FLO protocol and classes grew so much that the center was constantly booked, and to meet the demand Alisa transformed her wellness practice into the first-ever online hormone health center to help women around the world. FLO Living has since helped thousands of women in more than 216 countries for over 14 years.

Alisa is also the author of the best selling books, WomanCode and In the FLO: Unlock Your Hormonal Advantage and Revolutionize Your Life (Harper Collins 1/28/20), public speaker and creator of the period tracker app MyFLO. MyFLO is the first-ever functional medicine based period tracking app that helps users track symptoms and know what to do to become symptom free. She has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, has a web series on Lifetime, and has been a regular contributor for CBS, Fox, Shape, Women’s Health, MindBodyGreen, and the Huffington Post. She has served on the Yahoo Health advisory board and is a member of the Well & Good Wellness Council. She is also an advisor to several health and health tech startups.  She has presented at TEDx, Talks@Google, Summit Series Outside, Hay House, WIE Symposium, and SHE Summit.

Alisa lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.

Review of the Week:

 

AmandaLeeSouthernSoul

"More than just a podcast!  “Earn Your Happy” is amazing . Not only is it incredible alone - making me laugh, cry and feel like I’m connected to a supportive community, but is a gateway to new podcasts, inspirational people to follow on instagram along with adding to my ever growing book collection! I binge at work and get those weird looks when I bust out laughing at Lori and Evans (whatever totally worth it) and constantly take notes from the amazing guests on the show. This has truly been such a blessing that I stumbled upon casually looking through podcasts one day.

So grateful for this podcast to bring me back down from the stories I tell myself that are not true, get back into my higher self mindset and be my authentic self with no apologies!"

Atticus, the two-time anonymous best-selling author has taken the world by storm with his beautiful poetry and his powerful themes of love and strength of the human spirit.

Review of the Week:

MsLids

Another aha moment thanks to Lori and Evans! Whenever I need some inspiration, laughter or an aha moment, I tune into Earn Your Happy, and usually there is always something in an episode that is exactly what I need to hear. I was listening to Evans and Lori talk about pivots and Lori was sharing the story about baby sea turtles and it was the aha, calming advice I needed. You see I’m a mom to a 14 year old middle schooler that has really struggled this year and my momma bear has wanted to come in and “fix” it. Hearing that the turtles need to struggle on land so they can survive in the sea was a great analogy for parenting middle school girls. This struggle is part of her learning how to figure things out and my job is to provide her with the tools to help but not do it for her. Thanks as always for the motivation!!

 

Question 1:

Morgan

I took a job recently that feels like the right thing right now, but as soon as a better opportunity comes up I want to take it. How do I do that without feeling guilty about leaving my current job?

Tag us on Instagram and tell us what you’re going to start, stop, face and embrace in 2020. 

Question Highlights:

Guest Bio:

After an 11-year career as an executive and partner in the banking industry, Chris experienced plenty of success, however he severely lacked fulfillment – and was completely burned out. Recognizing that a change needed to be made, he retired from banking in 2011 and partnered with his wife, Lori, and her brand, LoriHarder.com, along with their Isagenix network marketing business. Chris now handles most of the business affairs and business coaching for their two multimillion dollar brands, and has found exactly the fulfillment and happiness he was seeking in a career.

Chris is the host of the new hit podcast, “For the Love of Money”, aimed at helping people bust through their money mindset blocks to become unapologetic about their pursuit of wealth. It is through interviewing business moguls and celebrities and exposing their exciting stories of contribution and philanthropy that he helps prove that money is a tool for good in a world with many needs.

It’s almost time for the new year, and we get to choose how we feel about it. There is so much beautiful energy around 2020 of manifesting what you want and getting rid of what you don't want.

-What needs to go?

My Cup of Energy & Life in the Mornings! Good morning Lori and Evans (btw, love your name!)! Just wanted to start off by saying that you two are my pick-me-up for the rest of the day on Tuesdays and Thursdays as I am driving to class - especially in Phoenix traffic!

KarlBird18 ★★★★★ "

The Earn Your Happy podcast is the fuel for my fire and never fails to bring a spark of joy into my life (a big spark!). Every Wednesday morning, Lori and Evans join me for my morning workout, motivating me to keep working on my dreams in their fun and silly ways. On more than one occasion, people stop to ask me why I’m smiling and giggling so much during my workout and I love to recommend the podcast to them. My friends and I have inside jokes inspired by Lori and Evan’s witty conversations (Jugernut 😂) and I feel like we’re all one big tribe cheering on each other’s dreams and celebrating our authenticity.

Show Notes:

In 2015 Annie Spano was lost and depressed because she was being bullied at her corporate job. Then she started blogging and connected with other women bloggers. Having that community made her feel like herself again. She decided to leave her job and create a membership-based blogger tribe for women, Style Collective.  

 

Question Highlights:

 

-How did you build a dream when you and your husband were both unemployed? 

 

-Is it possible for people to figure out what they want if they’re in a bad environment?

-How do you deal when people say you’re selfish for prioritizing your needs?

-What is the worst thing you’ve experienced in business?

Guest Bio:

Annie Spano is a former math teacher and corporate marketer with a BS in mathematics education and an MBA. She is the Founder of Style Collective, an online supportive community with influencer education that empowers women to find their purpose, be inclusive and achieve success. 

Style Collective was created in reaction to an experience no other woman should ever have. In late 2015, Annie left her job in corporate marketing after being bullied and harassed by another woman in the workplace. The experience left her feeling defeated and emotionally drained. She wished there was a way for women to work together and help each other achieve success. Annie has since made it her mission to empower other women, improve their happiness, and help them achieve their goals through sisterhood and support of a shared passion. Style Collective is the realization of that mission.

Show Notes:

I just got back from an amazing trip to NYC. That city, I swear to you, is like the most amazing perspective shifter. It's so incredible to me how this city of millions and millions of people just thrives in the chaos. I think it’s a perfect example of how you can choose to focus on either the negative or the positive. Coming back from my trip I got a head cold so I’m not feeling great. When I’m feeling under the weather is when I start doubting myself. And I realized that at this time of building a new company, I'm going to have to take even better care of myself. So if you want to be successful, pay attention to who you're around, what you're listening to, what you're doing and what you're eating. Just remember that your foundation and what you're capable of doing will really come from how much you take care of yourself and how much you focus on trying to build willpower.

Thank you Lori and thank you Evans for being authentic, and courageous and goofy and giving us a spectrum of being that is so relatable and inspiring. I will continue to laugh and answer ‘heck yeah!’ to your words of wisdom on my commute to and from work and joy give a poop if the car next to me thinks I’m talking and laughing to myself.

The best things in life are going to come from things that scare you. We pray for massive expansion. We want to hold these incredibly huge visions, except when we get put into the exact thing that is going to expand us. A lot of us say, get me out of here. I can't do it. This is too much. I'm not sure of myself. What about my past? What are people going to say? And we don't sit long enough in the fire to let it burn away our old form and let us stretch into the person that can handle the dream. Today I’m talking all about staying in the discomfort in order to get through it and through to the other side.

We cover how to love yourself into making better decisions, how to make a decision and move on without second-guessing plus how to pause to make sure you’re in control of your emotions so you don’t act from a place of chemical reaction in your body.

 

Review of the Week:

Aliciasep

Holy crap I’ve never felt closer to y’all! I love the show! Been listening for over a year and finally getting around to leaving a review. Just listened to a Questionably Awesome about leveling up where you talked about going home - specifically how you feel like you have to rush to get home and sit with family, and then they talk about their new shelf! I thought it was just me and it’s cool to hear that you all experience that. Also, why is that even a thing!? Anyway, love your podcast and random tangents. Makes me feel like I’m just listening to people I want to be friends with. Btw, can we be friends?! -Alicia

When searching for her purpose at the end of her healing journey she heard a message that said, “Makenzie, your purpose is to spread your glitter. It doesn't matter what you do, it matters how you do it.” Join us for this conversation about consciously raising capital, running a business intuitively and why Makenzie’s so passionate about entrepreneurs who are committed to their own healing.

Makenzie’s company was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, as well as hundreds of outlets across the globe including Cosmo, Live with Kelly, Good Morning America, Oprah Magazine and Women’s Health.

 

Makenzie is out to infuse love and light into the supply chain of the food industry by leading in ways that are definitely not talked about in business school.

Show Notes:

Whether you are being bullied online, whether you have a friend who is questioning who you are as you grow, or whether you are completely doubting yourself and not feeling smart enough, these are all opportunities to shine. I recently had an experience that I might share more about later. In the past, I would have gone to a very dark place and it would have taken me down for a really long time. This time I was able to bounce right back knowing that it is not our place to feel bad. We are meant to stay in joy because that's where we get outside of our heads and our small worlds. We expand, we grow and we give our talents, our efforts and our money to people.

My favorite shit show on FIRE! The last month has felt like falling down that Alice in Wonderland hole for me. There’s a welcome change waiting for me, but the interim has been a challenge.

One of my favorites being, “Because I’m just a shit show on fire 99% of the time.” I look forward to Wednesdays very much!

433: Decide it’s your time to shine with Ashley LeMieux
01:09:16

  • Chris and Lori’s Become Aligned course
  • Lindsey Schwartz and Lori’s 5-day immersive workshop on how to run profitable events, retreats or masterminds
  • How Ashley turned the trauma of losing her kids into power
  • The difference between pain and suffering
  • Trusting the process of life
  • Clarity mapping
  • Ashley’s book, Born To Shine

 

Resources:

 

 

 

Show Notes:

Six years ago Ashley LeMieux and her husband got a phone call asking them to become parents of a six-year-old and a four-year-old. They weren’t looking to adopt or foster at the time, but they said yes, and their life became all about their new family. During the final stages of the adoption process they experienced an unexpected contested adoption, which meant that they spent over a year and a half in court fighting to keep their family together. In the end the kids were taken from them with 12 hours notice and Ashley and her husband were not even allowed to tell the kids they weren’t coming home. Ashley says the past two years have been filled with her trying to figure out how to find a life again after it was all taken away. She felt buried by pain for so long she couldn’t work out how to move forward, but her journey through that has ignited everything she’s doing now. To begin she started a morning routine that added purpose back into her day. She wanted to write a book about her experiences and, after 30 different publishers said no, she figured out that no-one else’s opinion mattered and did it anyway. Her book, Born To Shine, shares stories, lessons, and practical tools to help women shine despite the darkness, to press forward one day at a time even when there is no end in sight, and to turn their most painful moments into their greatest teachers and signposts to true, deep, unassailable joy.

 

Question Highlights:

  • How do you find closure when you couldn’t say goodbye to your kids?
  • Was writing your book therapeutic?
  • What should people do when they can’t see a way out of suffering?
  • How can we believe in the significance of our story? 
  • How do we bring divine ideas to life and have faith in them even when they've lost their excitement?

 

Guest Bio:

Ashley LeMieux is an author, sought-after public speaker, and wildly successful lifestyle influencer. She's the founder of the online community, The Shine Project, where she creates resources and tools that have ignited a path of clarity and fulfillment for hundreds of thousands of women around the world. Through her fashion and lifestyle brand, Shop Ashley LeMieux, she empowers "Women Who Do" to show up confidently and courageously to their lives. She believes that you can turn your pain into your power.

Show Notes:

Today’s podcast is all about getting out of your own way because you have bigger fish to fry. You can’t play small anymore, you can’t live for other people and you can’t keep waiting for someone else to save you. That thing that you think just stopping you is your power. For me it was my anxiety, even though it was debilitating, and I told myself I couldn't do what I wanted because of it. Our superpower is to really share where we're at, and to share our truth and share that we're nervous and to remember that we're all in this human experience together. You can’t say the wrong thing to the right people, so get out there, find your audience, and live the life you want! I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

  • Creating a life you cannot hide from

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes:

Today I’m talking about the side effects of following your calling. But first I want to talk about the side effects of not following your calling. If you’re not taking actions that support your highest self, you get resentful toward yourself, the people that you love of other people and people who are inspiring to you. You feel anger, anxiety, isolation, comparison, and depression. The most important thing you can do is to really take note of how you're holding yourself back and learn to move forward. But moving forward isn’t pain-free either. You’ll feel discomfort and massive fear. You’ll make new friends and mentors but they won’t let you hide. You’ll lose people along the way. But at the end of your life you won’t be wishing you’d done things differently.

Show Notes:

On my run this morning something triggered my memory back to when I was in the fitness world but hadn’t started doing self-development work. I was binge eating and telling myself stories about why I wasn't good enough to do this work. I knew I had greatness inside of me, but I didn’t know what shape or form I would share it in. I put a training program on my credit card and showed up at that event so freaked out, but it totally paid off. Now I’ve created a 5-day workshop called EventLuv to teach the next generation of speakers, leaders and teachers how to create transformational experiences. The event is in January 2020 and the Earlybird price ends September 30. We’ll cover so many things including:

  • How do you protect your energy in the room? 
  • How do you walk through the hallways to get to the bathroom without getting involved in a conversation that could really drain you or deeply affect you before you get back on stage?
  • What do you charge for your event?
  • How do you plan to make a profit?
