Welcome back to the Lighthouse Podcast! In this episode, Chris and & Christy had the honor of speaking with Christy Owens. She is married to her husband, Ira, and they have three children, Grace, Noah & Jonas. Christy's son Jonas was diagnosed with Pre-B-Cell Leukemia at 16 months old. She opens up about the initial struggles of his diagnosis, treatment, and the uncertainties that plagued her family throughout their three-year journey. Christy shares a pivotal moment when she learned to focus on the present rather than fearfully anticipating the future. She found strength and trust in God's goodness, learning to focus on the present rather than anxiously worrying about the future. As Christy immersed herself in a supportive Facebook group titled Christian Parents of Kids with Cancer, she found solace, encouragement, and a platform to express her emotions through writing and sharing bible verses. Eventually, the Facebook page was given to Christy, and this space has become a sacred place for mothers to find strength, support, and spiritual nourishment. Discover the power of coming together and serving one another through the love of Christ amidst life's most difficult trials. During the conversation, Christy mentioned a group study on the book The Hiding Place.

You may be able to relate to them.

Personal growth is an ongoing process with many messy transitions. Despite moments of self-doubt, I can now acknowledge the significant changes I've made in controling my thoughts and emotions, instead of letting them control me.What You'll Learn:- The rest of the frustrating thoughts and liberating truths that I found in my old notes- The power of challenging sabotaging thoughts and replacing them with the truth- Embracing personal growth and acknowledging the positive changes in yourself- Understanding that personal transformation is an ongoing process with messy transitionsResources: - Get my FREE on-demand video training: How to Live Life on Your Own Terms & Timeline (And Stop Sacrificing Your Sanity, Personal Space, or Social Life) https://charisyourlife.com/video- Follow me on Instagram: https://instagram.com/charisyourlife - Follow me on Facebook: https://facebook.com/charisyourlife/ - Follow me on LinkedIn: https://linkedin.com/in/charisyourlife/- Follow me on YouTube: https://charisyourlife.com/youtube/- Follow me on Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/charisyourlife/- My website: https://charisyourlife.com/Mentioned in this episode:***2 ways to work with me 1:1 this spring [limited spots available]: Just DM me (social links above) the word "BREAKTHROUGH" if you're interested in either: 1. 60-minute 1:1 breakthrough session (over Zoom) 2.

Welcome to the seventh episode of P.S.A, the Mental Health Podcast where we deep dive into the intersections between mental health, society, and technology. This episode features our special guest, Terrance Williams, founder of Meta Wellness, a cutting-edge company utilizing Virtual Reality (VR) to revolutionize mental health therapy. Join your host Izzy, who deftly combines humor and insights, while unpacking this profound topic. In this episode, Izzy steers the conversation with her usual charm and wit, making several humorous references to iRobot, and other scenarios where AI takes over the world, teasingly questioning if our VR endeavors might head us towards a similar path. Together, Izzy and Terrance demystify complex concepts and their impacts on mental health, including AI, Virtual Reality, and social media, all the while ensuring a light-hearted atmosphere reminiscent of a happy hour. Following an intriguing discussion about the growing popularity of TikTok videos featuring people living in vans, and Izzy's ran following the success of Musiq Soulchild's return on "See the Thing Is" Podcast with Bridget Kelly and Mandii B, Terrance shares the inspirations behind Meta Wellness. He delves into his decision-making process and his personal journey that led to the creation of VR simulations for mental health professionals, all triggered by his commitment to men's mental health advocacy. Further into the episode, we explore recent research illustrating how VR exposure therapy has proven effective in treating PTSD, anxiety disorders, and chronic pain. We also challenge societal norms around men's mental health, focusing on the pressures and expectations faced by men and how this impacts their decision-making processes. This episode also engages with the potential negatives of VR, including addiction, escapism, how the future will mirror the hit tv show "Futurama", and its impact on mental health. Terrance answers the tough questions, candidly discussing the potential pitfalls of VR, including whether it's possible to garner genuine compassion and facilitate forgiveness through this digital medium. Despite the challenges, Terrance remains hopeful, believing that VR can play a revolutionary role in the mental health industry. He shares his experiences from Meta Wellness, highlighting success stories where VR has significantly impacted mental health treatment. Amidst the in-depth discussions, we have moments of fun as Izzy introduces a game segment: "Reality or Virtual Reality?" where Terrance has to determine if various scenarios are reality or the product of VR simulation, adding a playful element to the conversation. Our episode closes with Terrance offering valuable advice for those seeking to make better decisions for their mental health, especially in this age where social media and online platforms can be a double-edged sword.

Rhonda Taylor Parker, author and businesswoman, brings attention to the need for women's support, self-worth, and resilience in the face of life's challenges. This episode sheds light on the challenges women face in various aspects of their lives and emphasized the importance of finding balance and fostering healthy relationships. Key Points: (1) The Lack of Women's Support: Rhonda noticed a concerning trend in her business journey – the lack of support among women. While men often support each other to advance collectively, women tend to compete and undermine one another. This observation prompted Rhonda to explore the topic in her fiction novel, "Crossroads." (2) Overcoming Adversity Together: Women shoulder numerous responsibilities, from raising children to maintaining marriages, and often face unique obstacles based on their upbringing and societal expectations. (3) Stepping Beyond Stereotypes: Rhonda also touches on the challenges women face when navigating different environments, such as workplaces or educational institutions. (4) The Power of Mindfulness and Resilience: Rhonda emphasized the significance of finding one's purpose and practicing mindfulness as pillars of resilience. Understanding emotions and avoiding negative mindsets, such as envy and jealousy, is essential for personal growth and building healthy relationships.

What are the factors that drive short-term results while ensuring the long term success of your recruitment business? If you have ambitions to grow your recruitment agency, you'll enjoy my conversation with Kevin Burch the CEO and co-founder of Questpro Consultants. Since they opened in 1996, Questpro has grown to a team of 35 people providing four service offerings: temp, retained/contingency, executive search, and college graduate placement. In this episode, Kevin shares three of the secrets that have contributed to sustainable growth for the long run: Fostering a culture of achievement and empathy Diversifying revenue streams The mindset of embracing technology and staying relevant QuestPro, a staffing and recruiting firm based in Dallas, Texas specializing in the insurance and risk management industry nationwide. Episode Outline and Highlights [03:02] Kevin shares his perspective on collaborating, sharing ideas, and being in a community with competitors. [08:20] How Kevin got into recruiting. [12:42] Staff retention - How QuestPro's staff tenure is way above average. [21:28] Getting rid of toxic people to protect your business culture. [27:09] The role that caring and empathy play in your business. [34:37] How Questpro diversifies its revenue streams. [42:16] Giving back to the insurance industry with their QGrad Division [50:56] Embracing technology to evolve and stay at the forefront. Protecting Your Business Culture From Toxic People Over the last 25 years, Kevin has built a team of 35 people which is already an achievement on its own. But the thing that stood out to me is how he is able to retain these talents. He has 3 or 4 people with a tenure of 20 years, several more in the 10-15 range, and some between 5-10 years. Out of his 35 team members, only 11 are under the 2-year tenure. If there is a key factor contributing to this phenomenal achievement, it is Questpro's working culture. Kevin shared how they celebrate little things and big things, initiate fun contests, and reward and recognize performers. These engagement activities in Questpro are actually initiatives from the top management. For Kevin, the culture that they have is a culture not only of achievement but also of caring and empathy. Kevin also discussed the importance of protecting their culture by letting go of toxic members that can disrupt team dynamics. He shared their story where they had to let go of large producers for the greater good of the group. Despite being a small company at the time, he was willing to let go of a big revenue contributor for the well-being of others. You will hear how making this move led to their company hitting their best revenues the following year that they made that decision. Diversify Your Revenue Streams Kevin has a tremendous experience with permanent, retained, contingency, and contract staffing. He shared a very interesting mix in his business that includes 50-50 on temp and permanent (direct hire). They have four service offerings, namely: Questpro – Contingency and Retained Search QTemps – Temporary and Temp-to-Hire Contract Staffing as well as Payroll Services QGrads – Internships, Entry-Level, and College Graduate Placement QExecs – Executive Placement through Seasoned Contract Executives As Kevin said, “The theory that if you are a temp company you surely can't be a permanent staffing partner, or you can't be a retained partner is not true.” They even offer a “Grad Division” which helps keep the industry they serve full of fresh talent. For recruitment business owners, the idea of diversifying your revenue stream is critical for success. If you are currently doing only direct hire or perm placements, for example, consider adding recurring revenue streams such as temporary, contract, or interim. Keep on Learning and Embracing Technology Another takeaway from this episode is how Kevin and his team embrace technology. Being a recruiter for more than two decades, Kevin finds the last few years have been interesting and they have seen a big flip in how business is done. We discussed how they are staying at the forefront of their market, such as: Using videos when interacting with clients and candidates Best practices for using text messaging effectively in their search process Discussion of available tech tools and platforms that they use in their business For Kevin, re-learning and embracing technology is an advantage that contributes to his longevity in the industry.

Don't Retire...Graduate Podcast
Welcome back to Don't Retire… Graduate! This is an episode unlike any we've done before. Our guest is Rachael Schlimmer, a nomad who is traveling more often than she isn't but is ready to start putting down roots and planning out her future. While we promised not to call this an intervention (or a séance for that matter), Rachael was at a crossroads and needed someone to interfere, if only to help her stop doubting herself. She and Eric sat down for what is almost a financial planning consultation to discuss her goals, explore opportunities for cash flow, and get her to the realization that what you think your life is supposed to look like is not necessarily what it should look like. And, like many initial financial planning conversations, there was very little talk of money and a lot of talk of what she wants to be when she grows up. Listen now to go on this self-discovery journey with us. In this episode we'll talk about: • Turning your passions and hobbies into your career • The career paths that allow for the nomadic lifestyle that Rachael loves • Redefining the idea of “home,” and finding home in the people you meet • The skills you need (or don't need) to make a living • Barbara Sloan's book Tipped and the value it holds for those with less traditional income Visit dontretiregraduate.com for a full transcript of this episode. About Rachel Schlimmer: I've been semi-nomadic for the last 5-6 years, working for most of a year, travelling for 8-10 months. I'm working towards putting down some roots and building some stability, and part of that is upping my long-term finance game. Fortuitously met Eric over the bar top of a hotel restaurant I'm newly coffee slinging for, and here we are! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

How has our culture and worldview created a divide between the mind and body, and what are the implications of such a divide? In this thought-provoking conversation, we discuss Nancy Piercy's book Love Thy Body and explore the origins of this dualistic thinking in ancient Greek culture. We contemplate how Judeo-Christianity offers a holistic view of humanity, valuing the body through beliefs in the resurrection and incarnation, and how other philosophies like Marxism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Stoicism share similar views of escapism or perfectibility. We also dive into the controversial topic of abortion ethics and personhood theory in light of Nancy's argument that our dualistic views on the mind and body have led to devastating consequences. As we consider the ramifications of a society where the right to live is granted only by the state, we question the potential slippery slope towards totalitarianism and the importance of recognizing the interconnectedness of our minds, bodies, and spirits when tackling contemporary ethical issues. Join us as we explore Plato's search for divinity, the impact of ancient Greek thought on Christianity, and the value of the physical world, along with a fascinating discussion on the incoherence of the argument for abortion rooted in materialistic worldviews. We examine the power of the Christian God as a personal creator who made us in His image, endowing us with consciousness, choice, and values, and how this worldview can serve as a compelling argument for the existence of a higher power. Don't miss this enlightening conversation that will challenge your perspectives on the mind, body, and soul. --------- EPISODE CHAPTERS --------- (0:00:12) - Love Thy Body (0:10:33) - Plato's Search for Divinity (0:19:55) - Abortion Ethics and Personhood Theory (0:37:41) - Denying Human Rights Is Dangerous (0:46:45) - Book Club Discussion ----- Join us every week for conversations with each other, regular contributors & special guests.

For entrepreneurs, embracing a niche for achieving success is crucial in a competitive landscape that demands differentiation, making it crucial for entrepreneurs to specialize. By having a niche, entrepreneurs can focus their efforts, connect with their target audience on a deeper level, and tailor their products or services to specific customer needs.

Tom also shares more about his long career in finance and talks about how leaders can become more effective by listening to their employees and supporting them through difficult times. “Chaos provides the opportunity for learning and growth.” - Tom Cole “When you get to the end of your life, the most important thing in your life is going to be the relationships that you've had and how you've impacted other people.” - Tom Cole “Your best life will not be by taking the easiest path... it's most fulfilling when you do the hard things to get to the best result..” - Tom Cole This Week on The Wow Factor: Tom's early life and when he began to focus his talents on finance and business Some of the ups and downs in Tom's personal life and how that impacted him as a leader Tom shares why scripture and God's word steer his life Why it was so important to Tom to build genuine relationships in his professional life How Tom and his wife look at giving and how they moved from reactionary giving to building an intentional roadmap for their generosity Tom's heart attacks and why they were the catalyst for writing his book as a way to share some of his life lessons What fulfillment means to Tom and why it's essential to take a moment to take a deep breath and really define your purpose Why Tom became involved in New Canaan and how the organization serves men today Why being a good listener is the hallmark of a good leader Why building a community is the key to intentional decision-making Tom Cole: You need to understand your values, have a true north, and know in which direction you're headed.

In this week's Team Never Quit Podcast, Marcus brings to the table Special Forces Officer Bryan Ray, who has both a lengthy, positive military career as well as a “dark side” military experience that shook him to his core. Bryan & Marcus take a deep dive into Bryan's experiences which include serving in the war in Afghanistan and running the Mountain Warfare School in Colorado. It took a friend's similar mental struggles and professional help to finally get past the emotional impact of his horrific experience. His healing journey includes working with a health and wellness company – Health Via Modern Nutrition (HVMN) – who developed a ketone supplement, Keytone IQ, which is proven to improve cognitive and physical performance to soldiers. Bryan brings hope to veterans who have kept their mental struggles to themselves, and reveals the benefits of getting help without embarrassment or shame. In this episode you will hear: • One of the most rewarding parts of war is seeing the culture of the people who live there. • People have it a lot harder than we do in this country. • Even in places torn by war, you can still be happy with what minimal things you have. • I'm finding myself driving around in a Toyota Corolla - man jammies on, with a freaking gun and a backpack, hoping I don't get killed by a U.S. Army guy. • [War] is like taking an Oxford grad, and taking him to the deepest swamp in Louisiana and having a conversation. That was what my formal Arabic training was like. • I've now been to two combat zones where our President is on TV saying we have now stopped and all combat troops are going home - right before we go out to do a hit. • Have I seen an MRack Turbo turned into a jet for a hot tub? Yes, I have. • Mountain shit is stressful. • [With Keytone IQ] You can dual fuel now. You can take the most efficient fuel which is ketones and you can also have carbs on board for when you need it. So you get the mental clarity - all the stuff you need from the keytones, and you don't have to have a restrictive diet. • [It's a] Super application for the ground guys. • I want people to try it [Keytone IQ]. I want people to say it's the real deal. • You only buy Oakley's for so long before they show up in the supply room. • The man behind the weapons systems is always gonna be more important, and the more effective he is, the better. • Stop wasting money on shit that works a little bit and phases out immediately and invest a tenth of that into the man – make a better soldier. • There's a lot more guys that have [mental] issues than are willing to say they have issues. • I had an event in Afghanistan that challenged me morally. I was directly responsible for the deaths of young children. Of all the things I've done overseas – that was really rough. • It wasn't until somebody I trusted that told me they were feeling what I was feeling that I was willing to go get help.

In the world of private equity, few individuals possess the depth of experience and insight that Ace Chapman brings to the table. Ace, a veteran in Private Equity with over 20 years of experience, made his mark by acquiring an online stock market simulator in the early days of the Internet. Through strategic changes, he grew the user base from 10,000 to 250,000, generating a remarkable 100x cash on cash return. This achievement laid the foundation for Ace's illustrious career, during which he built systems to streamline the process of creating private equity funds, completed close to 200 deals, and served as a General Partner for 8 funds. Ace's leadership and strategic acumen have not only yielded impressive returns but also fostered trust and loyalty among his partners, who continue to collaborate with him fund after fund. His expertise and track record have earned him a reputation as a deal maker extraordinaire. THE PHILOSOPHY OF DEAL-DRIVEN GROWTH At the heart of Ace's approach lies the philosophy of deal-driven growth. He recognizes that organic growth and sales are valuable components of business success. Ace's focus is on seeking and capitalizing on deals that can catapult his businesses to new heights. Whether it's acquiring new assets, purchasing underperforming businesses to turn them around, or partnering with strategic investors, Ace views deals as a primary driver of growth and profitability. Ace's deal-first mindset translates into a systematic approach to deal making. He leverages his extensive network, industry expertise, and financial acumen to identify potential deals and assess their viability. With a focus on strategic alignment and value creation, Ace navigates the complexities of negotiations, due diligence, and deal structuring. THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION Ace's deal-first philosophy starts with examining every aspect of the profit and loss (P&L) statement to identify opportunities for ownership. By acquiring businesses that align with his existing operations, he converts expenses into assets. For example, purchasing a bookkeeping company allowed Ace to consolidate expenses, increase profitability, and position the business for future growth. This approach transforms previously incurred costs into revenue-generating entities and amplifies the return on investment. The second aspect of Ace's philosophy revolves around capitalizing on businesses that have already built the necessary infrastructure. Rather than reinventing the wheel, Ace seeks out companies with complementary offerings, allowing him to instantly access talent, systems, and operational efficiencies. For instance, acquiring a virtual assistant (VA) company eliminated the need to continually hire and train VAs, significantly reducing costs and streamlining operations. By leveraging existing infrastructure, Ace accelerates growth and mitigates common challenges associated with scaling businesses. Ace's deal-first philosophy provides a refreshing perspective on business growth and ownership. By converting expenses into assets, leveraging existing infrastructure, and strategically acquiring businesses, Ace maximizes value creation opportunities and builds a diverse and profitable portfolio. While challenges exist in managing disparate businesses, Ace's exit-focused mindset ensures long-term success and creates a pathway for consistent growth. Entrepreneurs and business owners can learn valuable lessons from Ace's approach and explore the potential. • • • FOR MORE ON ACE CHAPMAN:https://www.linkedin.com/in/ace-chapman/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaNlGb8yu09Pvp-kUsyeW-w/videoshttps://www.acechapman.com Corey Kupfer is an expert strategist, negotiator, and dealmaker.

Adam creates a hypnosis session that integrates a poem he created about birthdays to celebrate his birthday - a time of gratitude and reflection. The poem uses hypnotic language and a timeline to take you from your first birthday to your last enabling you to appreciate life at whatever stage of it you are. Here's the poem: The Birthday Trance In the cradle of life's enchanting trance, A baby's spirit, a mystical dance. Embraced by love's hypnotic sway, Your soul alights on this magical day. As toddling feet tread life's mystic course, In the realm of dreams, let your spirit source. Unleash the power of your mind's delight, Awakening possibilities, taking flight. In childhood's realm, where wonders reside, Boundless imagination becomes your guide. Let your thoughts soar to celestial heights, And paint the canvas of your heart's delights. In adolescence's rhapsody, a symphony untold, Passion's melody, a story to unfold. Unlock the secrets of your inner fire, Ignite the embers of your heart's desire. Youthful days, a euphoric reverie, Love's intoxication sets your spirit free. Surrender to love's enchanting embrace, And find solace in its tender grace. In the tapestry of adulthood's embrace, Wisdom and dreams merge, leaving no trace. Tap into the depths of your soul's grandeur, Unleash your essence with utmost fervor. Maturity's embrace, a sacred dance, Radiating wisdom, your spirit's advance. Embrace the ebb and flow of life's tide, Leaving footprints of love far and wide. Now, as the candles flicker with grace, We gather to honor this final embrace. Reflect on the journey that brought you here, Embracing both joy and sorrow, without fear. On this last birthday, before life's sweet breath, Emotions intertwine, embracing both life and death. With hearts heavy, yet grateful for what's been, A legacy of love, a soul that's truly seen. Happy birthday, dear soul, so sublime, In this hypnotic trance, we find our rhyme. May you transcend the realms of time and space, Leaving a legacy of love and grace. As you embrace the beyond's ethereal shore, May your spirit soar and forever explore. Know that your essence shall forever reside, In the hearts and minds of those who confide. In this hypnotic journey, let your soul ascend, Embracing the infinite, where dreams transcend. Happy birthday, dear friend, in this dance of fate, Your spirit eternal, love will navigate.

This is a message that I just feel really called to share and my hope is that it resonates with you! Start by reflecting on the community you have in your everyday life.

In today's episode, I speak with Dr. Rina Bliss, a leading expert on the nature of intelligence and its cultural significance. Dr. Bliss, who is a professor of sociology at Rutgers University, has spent over a decade researching the misconceptions surrounding intelligence and its assessment. In her latest book, Rethinking Intelligence: A Radical New Understanding of Our Human Potential, Dr. Bliss challenges the conventional wisdom that intelligence is a fixed, innate trait determined solely by genetics. Drawing on cutting-edge research, as well as her own experiences as a mother and a sociologist, she argues that intelligence is a complex and dynamic process shaped by a range of factors, including stress, connection, play, and mindfulness. Join us as we delve into the fascinating world of intelligence and its cultural significance. Dr. Bliss' hope is that this episode challenges us to rethink what we know about ourselves, our children and our human potential.-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityConnect with Dr. Rina Bliss:WebsiteInstagramTik TokShow Notes for EP278: Rethinking IntelligenceEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it!
