Jenny got a call from a producer looking for someone with her specific skillset from an ABC show. So she is excited to be on an upcoming episode of Free Enterprise that helps people who are recently out of prison start their own entrepreneurial journey.Joe was not appropriately excited by Jenny's news of being on TV.Sarah is so excited for Jenny and talks about how people are so suspicious about voice mails being spam or fake and was a bit surprised that Jenny even called the casting agent back. It's important to assume the best. We talk about the roller coaster ride of entrepreneurship and the importance of mindset for entrepreneurs. People usually only see the wins of other people's journeys because that is usually the only story they share. We choose our thoughts and have to be cognizant of our mindset.We talks about how both Jenny and Sarah's quarter 3 were like watching a dumpster fire and how they got out of that mindset cycle of anxiety.Everything is not Pinterest perfect or "social media life."Sarah has posted images of herself crying in the car or rough parenting stories in order to be transparent and authentic.Sarah tells the story of how her 10-year-old son decided to play hide and seek while she and the family were at the bank. When you share those really raw and vulnerable moments, you will get backlash from people that don't understand the power of vulnerability. Sarah shares how to deal with the criticism that comes with being vulnerable.We spend some time unpacking why we don't feel like we are entitled to a "luxury" vacation and how is it a mindset. It's the same mindset that has many women ordering from a menu solely by price.

Maggie Honey was diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome, which can be described as having ‘sticky' blood that is prone to clotting. When she was 46 and a busy mum of triplets, Maggie began having insomnia, recurrent UTIs and dry eyes, skin and mouth. It wasn't until her periods had stopped for a year and she felt dreadful all the time that she realised many of her symptoms might be related to menopause. When she sought help, she was given more diagnoses related to her blood condition but no help for her symptoms. Her blood disorder consultant at the time told her, ‘whatever you do, don't go on HRT'. This was due to the inaccurate belief that all HRT holds a risk of clot. In this episode, Dr Louise Newson talks through all the issues that Maggie's story illustrates, including explaining why HRT is usually safe for people at risk of clot, when estrogen is given through the skin via a patch, gel or spray. They discuss how beneficial HRT can be for your quality of life, and what lifestyle factors do actually raise your risk of getting a clot. Maggie's 3 menopause tips for people at risk of clot: Listen to your own body, keep a symptom diary like the one on balance app. Trust your own instincts and don't be fobbed off. Find a menopause specialist as well as a sympathetic blood specialist doctor (haematologist). Encourage communication between your different doctors, including your GP. Share information with friends, family and colleagues. The more we talk about it, the more help we can give to one another.

1 Thessalonians 5.14 NLT 'Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.' Although the leaders of the church in Thessalonica had a particular responsibility for caring for the people, Paul was clear that everyone had a part to play. As members of God's family, everyone needed to get involved in what we would often call pastoral care. This is far more than merely listening to one another's woes and being kind to one another. Paul told his readers to warn the lazy. The verb ‘warn' is sometimes translated ‘admonish'. Paul saw laziness as being so dangerous that direct action needed to be taken. It had to stop if the church was to thrive. Some people in the church had stopped working because of their belief that Jesus might return at any moment, and in so doing they had become a burden on others. Whilst Paul was absolutely convinced that the Lord might indeed return at any moment, he strongly objected to anyone using it as an excuse to give up work. Paul urged them to encourage the timid. This may refer not only to those who were naturally lacking in courage but also to those who had become discouraged and worried through particular life experiences. We are called not merely called to be kind to such people but actually to give them courage so that they will be better able to face life's challenges. He also told the church to take tender care of the weak. Undoubtedly, he was talking here about those who were spiritually weak, and who would need stronger Christians to hold them up. In all of this, Paul urged his readers to be patient with one another. Anyone who has been involved with a church will know how important patience is! The reason for this is that we are all different. We see things from varying angles and want to proceed at different speeds. It is great that we are not the same as one another – but also very hard work. Only patience will see us through. The Greek word for patience literally means big suffering or long suffering. It is a great privilege to support one another – but never be surprised when it is exhausting work. QUESTION: In what way is God calling you to support your Christian brothers and sisters? PRAYER: Lord God, thank you for calling us and equipping us to care for one another within the church. Amen

Why is a sense of humor and humanity so important that you should bring both to work and keep them in your life? In fact, a sense of playfulness can be your superpower. It certainly was for this week's guest: Kathy Klotz-Guest.  In today's episode, Kathy shares her story as a woman in technology who excelled in Silicon Valley by being funny and smart. We delved into the #1 fear most of us share: the fear of judgment especially by others (particularly from our coworkers). Kathy also shares how you can avoid living a fragmented life at work and instead bring more of your personality to the table as an asset. We talk about what you may need to feel psychologically safe enough to let your guard down a bit and show your humanity.  Kathy shares where the magic is as well as other lessons she has learned from her ‘improv' experiences, including a concept called the “yes, and.” Hopefully, after listening to this episode, you'll be inspired to add more humor and a spirit of playfulness into your life.  I also want to invite you to grab your free copy of my Courage Makerspace Playbook. In this playbook, you'll have an opportunity to grow and test your own courage muscles. See where they are today and where they can use some strengthening so that you can get more out of your life. Pick any one of my 7 specific exercises centered on boosting your courage so you get to a point where you rise up and you and you can finally be your real, authentic, and playful self. You see, approaching your life purpose or going after your dreams is a lot easier if you are intentionally playful along the way; and in my playbook, I give you my process.  Simply go to www.melissallarena.com/courage. Once you receive your playbook, turn to page 29 for an exercise that will help you intentionally add playful experiences into your life. You will also notice how intentionally planning for playful experiences each month will get you to a space where you'll be making your responsibilities work around those playful and memorable experiences and not the other way around. Grab your Courage Makerspace right now if you want to rather approach your life purpose and mission laughing, than being burnt out.  About Kathy Klotz-Guest Kathy Klotz-Guest is a speaker, author, comedian, and former tech exec who uses tools of improvisation and humor to help leaders, teams - even companies - be more human and communicate like humans.

Her 12 yr old still thinks she's funny, though she knows that the window is closing very soon. She is working on her 3rd book and just launched an improv and business course on LinkedIn Learning called 'Leading in the Moment.' Share this episode with a people leader whom you know is secretly a funny person who might just need a nudge to share their gift with others! Encourage them to use their superpower by sharing this conversation with them.  Highlights Curiosity: Consider the idea of saying “yes, and” in your life so that you can follow your hunches and stay the course with whatever might be necessary for you to do during your day-job Creativity: Create or find your own safe space. Watch how creative you can be when you feel psychologically safe. Courage: Honor yourself and your ideas and show up for others. It's time to stop living a fragmented life and start becoming more of yourself. Embrace who you are and that's where the magic is! Leadership: Leaders worth following have a sense of humor and humility. If you take yourself so seriously, you can't laugh at your mistakes and embrace your own humanity.  Humanity: We all have inside of us this capacity for lightheartedness and joy. If we don't want that as part of who we are, then we're not connecting with all of who we are. Fear: The number one fear is people are afraid of being judged by their co-workers, we're afraid of judgment. Perspective: Be honest about the reality that some people will not like who you are. Show up more and the world around you will start to change. Authenticity: If you can be more you during the hiring process, the right employer, the right culture, the right team, and their propensity to accept the real you will reveal itself. Humor: People feel more comfortable with humor when it's organic and when there's psychological safety. Culture: When the people in an organization aren't laughing, it could mean that fear is high and psychological safety is low. And so, look at the net you put under people. Self-aware leaders who are progressive are open to the challenge, and psychological safety starts with them. Adapt: We were born improvisers. Every day, everybody in life and in business has to adapt. They have to pivot and the greatest pivot involves COVID. Playfulness: Play is not the opposite of serious. It's the opposite of depression. Reclaim playfulness starting with doing the little things and whatever works for you. Whatever feeds your soul is valid play. There's no one way to play. Play in the workplace: There's no wrong way to do it. Play a little bit in every meeting. Meetings don't have to be boring!  Safety: As leaders, make it a safe place for people to speak of how they feel, and that kind of safety opens people up. Play is both a top-down and bottoms-up approach. It doesn't excuse leaders from doing their share to create psychological safety.  Joy space: Make sure you do something that brings you joy every day. Whether that's teaching or listening to music, whatever that looks like, create these places where you find joy and feel safe. Self-talk: We all have the universal fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, fear of being wrong, and the fear of being judged. And you've got to rewire the self-talk. The inner critic: Whenever you're criticizing somebody else's creation, you are feeding your inner critic such that when you go to do something creative, it will turn on you because you fed it with other people.

Leadership Mindset, Positive Focus, and Your First 90 Days Leading a New Team with Richard Lindner and Jeff Mask

Ready to Lead

The absolute foundation of leadership is a powerful positive mindset, and it needs to start on day one.    What comes to mind when you hear the word “mindset?” If you feel like mindset isn't important, and you're impatient to get to the tactics, the “good stuff,” then this episode is for you.    Co-hosts Richard Lindner and Jeff Mask reflect back on the days when they first started working together. Jeff introduced an exercise called “positive focus” and Richard wanted to skip it and move right to the solution to his problem. He quickly learned that, if you don't start by fixing the problem of mindset, then every solution is a temporary band-aid.   In this episode, we'll walk through mindset and positive focus, then move into some tactical suggestions for your first day, week, and months leading a new team.    Why Mindset and Positive Focus Are So Important At the start of Richard's first coaching session with Jeff, Jeff said, “Let's start out with your positive focus.” Richard remembers thinking, “Better yet, why don't you help me?” He really wanted to skip all the woowoo juju stuff and didn't understand why Jeff was making him do it.   Richard said, “I don't know, man. I got nothing.” And Jeff said, “Well, I guess we're just going to sit here then. There's something good, and we're going to find it.”   Fast forward to today when they start off every weekly leadership meeting with positive focus, and Richard believes in it wholeheartedly. Jeff knows a lot of people can relate to Richard's initial skepticism. Mindset can seem touchy-feely and unnecessary when there are difficult business problems to solve.    Jeff takes people back to the second Back to the Future movie when Doc Brown creates the time space continuum on the chalkboard and says “this is where we've been, and this is where we are.” He tells Marty that, when he went back in time, he changed something, and now there's a new time space continuum, another 1985.   When we don't start our meetings, our thoughts, from a place of positivity, we're on a time space continuum that isn't healthy because we're thinking what we're fearful and frustrated about. The highest part of our brain isn't functioning. We're in the bad 1985. When you reframe and refocus your brain on the positive, you start to exercise the higher-level functioning of your brain, the aspects that enable you to problem solve, learn, and create.    We're wired as humans to be thinking more in the survival state, which is owned by the brain stem, the oldest part of our brain. When we try to solve problems from that part of our brain, we don't get great outcomes.    Contrast that with the prefrontal lobes, the part that's responsible for learning, adapting, creating, problem-solving, leadership. When we use that part of our brain, we hack ourselves to a higher level to get to a much deeper, better outcome. Jeff says at the beginning of every meeting, “Let's hack our brains.”   A Simple Exercise to Realign Your Team's Mindset Leadership is not about protecting yourself. It's about growing others, aligning others, and building a cohesive team. If you put yourself first, none of that works. If we understand the science behind it, understand the need for mindset, what is a simple exercise we can go through to realign our mindset?   Jeff recommends starting with a level one exercise. The question is simple: What are you grateful for in your life today? At the beginning of a meeting, you just go around the room and give everyone a chance to answer that question.    The level two question is this: What is something in your business that you're excited about or grateful for? Encourage people to get super specific, add detail, paint a visual image. This starts to evoke emotion, which releases oxytocin and serotonin, good stuff in the brain that fuels you to solve big problems.   Give people time and space to think if they need it. If someone gives the copout, “I can't think of anything,” say, “We'll wait.”   Who starts? Jeff believes it's powerful when the leader starts and shows some vulnerability first. And how long should it take? Five minutes is good—no more than 10% of the meeting time or people feel like they're not getting traction.  The only caveat is when the team needs healing for whatever reason, when you need to create a bond and trust.    How Do I Start Leading a Team? How do we take a great mindset into leading a team? Maybe it's your first time, or maybe you've led before but now you're leading your peers. What do you do the first day, the first week, the first month?    Richard says, for him, the first day is all about introductions and information. He used to think it was all about power and authority, making sure everyone knew he was in charge and was there to fix all the problems. He suffered from arrogance, assuming there was no intelligence or great ideas before he got there.     Jeff taught him to make it about others, not himself, to ask, “What do people need to know, think, or feel?” The first day is 10% about Richard, 90% about this team. He has them fill out a team member profile with easy questions that give him insight into who they are. (Favorite snack? Restaurant? Hobby? Have a pet? A partner?)   Jeff likes to ask, “What do you like most about your job? What's frustrating about your job?” He'll say, “I'll share just a little bit about myself, but I really want to get to know you.” He gets personal, so they see him as open and vulnerable—and a whole person. He tells them how long he's been married, about his kids, that he loves to surf and accomplish crazy things.   He also shares some weaknesses, because he doesn't want to give off the vibe that he's perfect, because he's not, and he likes that he's not. He likes the joy of learning and growing and failing. Right from the get go, he sets the precedent that failing is fun, something everyone can learn/grow from.   Whatever your leadership style is, make sure you start communicating that right away. If you're not a “my door's always open” person, then make sure no one expects that.    The Value of a Keep-Start-Stop Exercise By the end of that first week Richard likes to do a Keep-Start-Stop exercise where you ask everyone these three questions:    What should we keep doing (or do even more of)?  What should we start doing (that hasn't been greenlit)? What should we stop doing (because it's taking too much time or isn't having the desired effect or is bad for the company, the customer, or the team)?    When you frame things like that, you're telling people you hear them. After you get that information from them, your job is to attack it with curiosity, to figure out if it's good for the company. Give them subtle lessons in presenting a business case. You think we should do more of this? Why? What stats are you using? How is it affecting overall company goals? What if you had more resources? Why do you think we should stop doing this? Why are we still doing it?   Get Into a Leadership Rhythm In that first week, it's important to start the rhythm of when will I be doing what? When will I meet weekly with my team one on one? When will I hold the weekly meeting? When will I review different dashboards and stats? Get into a cadence, because leadership can feel sporadic and urgent. If you're not careful and don't discipline how you'll manage time, time will manage you. Be intentional about when you want to do what. Block out time for people, preparation, and proactive measures.    Human beings like consistency. We're not talking about structuring every minute of every day, especially not for creative people. But even creative people like to have consistency so they know expectations and they're prepared.    On that first day, seek to know. They know you; you know them. First week: make people feel heard. Understand what they're thinking about in their role professionally and also set expectations for what the average day/week/month looks like.    Then the rest of the month is all about professional alignment. Sit down with each person and look at their job description. Does this accurately represent what you do? How are you measured? What are you responsible for? Get it all aligned, accurate, up-to-date. Get clarity.   The next episode is a mini-one where Jeff will answer the question: How do I make sure there's clarity and everyone knows what winning looks like?    Richard and Jeff want to hear from YOU.

I am a marketing-led business coach. I work with creative entrepreneurs all over the place who are past that initial launch phase and that want to grow their business to new heights and marketing is my lens. I also have a podcast that is Through the Marketing Lens. Where she talks all about all things marketing. Basically, the reason she does what she does is that she had small businesses herself. She grew them, She was scrappy about it, and I really fell in love with marketing because it was a way to actually move her businesses forward. And that is that's where it all comes from.We talk about Katrina's scrappiness and how she started multiple businesses. Her journey was messy but really fun. It was in this phase of growth that she fell in love with marketing."I think that marketing feels really hard. To a lot of people. There are so many different facets to marketing, so we tend to find someone else that's doing what we want to do, and then just copy them. And that's not always going to feel in alignment with who you are as a person." -Katrina AronsonWe talk about the importance of authenticity and vulnerability and how that should apply to your marketing. Instead of copying someone else or looking for the "best" ways to market from others in your industry or other's who are doing well, it would be wise to start with what is in alignment for you.This led to a conversation about how companies are showing up in today's cultural climate with issues like black lives matter, backing the blue, me too, etc.  "I think every brand. Should and can stand up for the things that they believe in. Where I think a big mistake happens is that we identify as our brands, and sometimes we're not." - KatrinaWe talk about the role of politics in the marketing of businesses.

One of the most dangerous things that a leader can say is “we've tried this before and it didn't work.”   It's so crucial for an organization to have team members who are innovative enough to bring new ideas to the table. Especially if you're someone who's been inside the box for so long, it's refreshing to have people come in and help you take a look outside of the box.   One way to squash your team's innovation is through shutting them down by outrightly rejecting their ideas.   Today's guest, John Coyle is one of the world's leading experts in design, thinking, and innovation. So we talk about how leaders can foster innovation in their organizations all while maintaining decisiveness. It's not an easy feat as we know there are quite a few leaders out there who are so used to their old ways that they resist change and are unwilling to change, as well.   Some important highlights we bring into the discussion are:   How leaders can foster innovation within the organization while maintaining decisiveness, and How to encourage your team to come up with innovative ideas and take action on the right ones   Don't be that leader who shuts down their team's innovative ways. Be the one that cultivates it!   Discussion Points:   0:00 Introduction   2:19 A short story about the most dangerous words leaders use in their organizations   3:45 The 3-strike science behind a person's creativity and innovative shutdown   5:25 How leaders can remain open to new ideas while being firm and decisive   6:36 Technique leaders can use to promote the team's creative and innovative thinking   8:29 Effective ways to generate ideas from the team   9:47 Leaders shifting from project-based to people-based mindset — being the champion of your team's ideas   10:56 Balancing the need for new ideas while sticking to your organization's values and purpose   12:02 The Innovation Equation   15:05 Tips for leaders to transition from the boss who prevents innovative thinking to one that promotes it   17:53 Humility in leadership brings teams together   18:39 What about leaders who are resistant and unwilling to change?   20:39 Combining learner leadership and decisiveness   22:29 Action items for creating a balance between an innovative mindset and a decisive one   23:35 What happens then to the team members whose ideas were not chosen?   24:55 Best leaders make sure they act on the right ideas and give clear accountability to team members   26:57 Be willing to hear a NO or be prepared to make some tweaks so the NO becomes a YES   About the Guest:   John K. Coyle is one of the world's leading experts in "Design Thinking” and Innovation. A highly sought-after speaker and lecturer, John is a graduate of Stanford University with a degree in Engineering - Product Design (Design Thinking) and Northwestern's Kellogg Graduate School of business with an MBA in organizational behavior, marketing and entrepreneurship.   A former head of innovation for a Fortune 500 wireless telecom, John has also been the SVP of innovation for a leading strategy consultancy.

And, uh, he's been in town for a few days and it's so interesting because it upsets my routine. And in a, in a fine way, like I'm absolutely not complaining. Um, and I love my brother tremendously. And, uh, I just want to say a few things about my brother and then some inspiration, um, that I had at the same time. So, uh, yeah, Nixon town naked. If you're listening to this, to this episode, I love you. Um, uh, yeah, so Nick gets to town and, um, it was right after my camping trip. And, uh, and so as I'm trying to find my new routine coming out of the summit and I go on this camping trip, get back and Nick shows up the next day and, and, uh, I had all this momentum recording episodes for, for this podcast.Mischa Z: 01:07 And then as soon as Nick lands and like too bashful to record an episode in front of him, um, trying to find the time usually recorded my house or walking, but not finding time to walk, anyhow. Um, and just in a bit of a, of a state of, uh, oh no, again, what am I going to record? What am I gonna record? I'm I'm idealess. Idealless for a podcast episode and, uh, all of a sudden, so this is one of the things I'm going to talk about. I've got a couple more in regards to Nick. Um, but this is really in regards to some inspiration that I had. So I was just reading "A Course In Miracles", you know, as Nick was kicking it on the couch, it's the afternoon, three or four in the afternoon. And, and I keep, you know, turning to my intuition or source or, you know, the infinite intelligence and, and trusting that don't worry.Mischa Z: 02:22 It's okay if your Nick's here and you're not having a ton of cohesive thought streams of thought for, for, um, an episode. Just trying to trust that right. And keep like, saying that mantra to myself, Hey, it's okay. The ideas will come. Or I had all these great content flowing front, um, the Viktor Frankl book. And I'm hoping for more content from that book, because it was so rich with ideas and talking points. And there were, uh, interestingly in the Victor Frankl book, there's a couple of thoughts where I was like, a couple of this ideas might go, oh, maybe I would disagree a little bit. So I think that will be fun to talk about as well, perhaps or anyway. So as, uh, I'm reading "A Course In Miracles", I find this really juicy paragraph about pausing for a moment and letting go of some preconceived notions and things.Mischa Z: 03:46 So you can see people in a different light and the inspiration hits me as I'm doing what the paragraph says, oh my gosh, what a great meditation this would be and what a great episode that would be. And, um, it's been lurking in my mind as I, when I, from when I started the podcast. And even before I started the podcast, perhaps I would do some sorts of, you know, meditations and, uh, and so to have that thought pop into my head and that willingness feels super exposed. Wanting to do a meditation episodes. I just feel super exposed to me, like putting myself out there in a way that's very raw. And so the thought of actually doing it was very far away. The idea of it was there, but perhaps the willingness and the inspiration seemed elusive and fleeting at best. And so to have that inspiration come to me was pretty cool. And the next thing that happened was go do the meditation yourself, take 20 minutes, breathe that in and let it settle and internalize it and then come back and record the episode. And, uh, so that's what I did. Yesterday's episode was the, was the outcropping of that. Is that the right word or the result of that? Um, it's really funny as I'm walking through traffic, talking on my phone, getting interesting looks, trying to not get hit by a car,Speaker 2: 05:57 Hitting pause, just hitting start again. I found a bench to sit on. Sure. It he'd get hectic all the sudden as I was walking and recording. So anyway, it was super fun to do that a little, you know, seven or eight minute episode meditation. And I'm assuming that as you're listening to this, I actually published it. Um, but I did some, I did some literally four or five years ago. And I still have some that were recordings laying around where I started playing with this microphone that I'm recording on and playing with meditations and things, but never with, did I actually think I would record and publish meditations? It's a very exciting, thank you for listening. Listen to yesterday's episode. I hope you find it fun. Um, and so lastly, just want to talk about Nick and give a little shout out to Nick. And I could probably do a whole nother episode and perhaps I will, but I just want to say right here in this moment, how, how I really, my brother is such a good man and how, oh my gosh.Speaker 2: 07:23 It's may have trains super loud RVs. I thought this was going to be a nice, calm, quiet episode. It's not turning out that way. The best laid plans of mice and men hang in there, everybody. But just to see just how cool it is to have a brother is who was so supportive of what I feel like are my shenanigans, right? Like doing podcasts and summits and, and, uh, just over my life, he's always been encouraging to me and, and, uh, and, and one of my biggest supporters and my biggest fans in the face of sometimes what seemed to be crazy behaviors. So a big shout out to my brother. And I would encourage anybody to think about the people in their lives, who support you, who are the people in your lives that support you no matter what, and just encourage you. And I hope you have at least one of those people in your lives. One of them is absolutely my brother, and I'm very grateful for him and just life is good. That's it? I'm going to stop. Now. I survived. This is one of those episodes where I feel like I survived in spite of the mayhem flying on around me.

Anna was diagnosed with breast cancer at 27 years old. No family history, it came out of the blue. She was a newlywed and wanting to start a family. She was in the best shape of her life, eating vegan, etc. She had always been interested in fashion and beauty and went to Pinterest and social media to find out what to do with her cancer diagnosis. And she discovered that cancer was her niche. Cancer is part of her journey and wants women like her to be confident and beautiful as they go through adversity in life. "Cancer may have taken my breasts and my hair but I kept my lipstick and heels. Facing breast cancer in my 20s led me to confront my insecurities and find new ways to thrive with self-confidence and style. I started My Cancer Chic to share my own journey and provide support & inspiration to all women hoping to thrive through and beyond the adversity they face."We talk about the "everything happens for a reason" philosophy. Anna describes how cancer gave her brazen confidence that she never had in her entire life. She was bald, not looking like herself, and she thought she would have the lowest amount of confidence she had ever had, but it was like she was given permission to say, "I'm a bad-a$$, I'm going to put on my wig and some lipstick and heels and walk into that chemo facility and show those doctor's who's boss.Part of her experience was like stripping her identity of cultural norms for women especially to feel pretty and sometimes fake. Cancer takes that away and puts you in a vulnerable position and doesn't give you a choice. For her writing about her story was her way to control what that message was.Anna shares her appreciation for a lesson learned from Brene Brown about vulnerability. It's not just about being vulnerable because you should, it actually positively impacts your life because it deepens your relationships.She shares her and her husbands' love story about how they met, fell in love and built a foundation for a happy marriage. Anna also opened up about her experience with sex during and after cancer and the help and support she found along the way to rediscover her body.
