The question, "why not invest locally?" was first raised and addressed. Investing close to home has many advantages; however, you may have specific reasons why this isn't the best option. One example is that you could see better returns in a different neighborhood, county, state, or region.Expanding the scope of where to look for deals reduces the impact socio-economics, demographics, and local legislation has on you.Some considerations for investing in real estate at a distance that we discussed included: A solid network of trusted professionals is essentialSeek out potential partners who have skills you can leverageOffer partners incentives to work with youStructure partnerships based on the value each party brings to the dealDelegate responsibility appropriatelyFix-and-flip vs. buy and hold scenariosWant a refresher or to see what you missed?

On this episode of All Things I am joined by Lori Arfsten who has been entrenched in pro-life work in Colorado for decades. Lori's frontline work gives her a wholistic view of the movement and an educated perspective on how we might better meet the needs of abortion-vulnerable women. I so appreciate Lori's humility and desire to pay attention to the voices and perspectives of women from across the movement: those who are faith-based and those who are not, women of color, indigenous women, and more. Lori says that while politicians control the public pro-life narrative, it's really this diverse and compassionate crowd in the trenches who hold the key to expanding our pro-life care. She exhorts the church to get serious about understanding the multi-faceted issue of abortion (there are so many interrelated reasons that cause women to consider abortion) and how we might offer wholistic care to women and youth on the margins so that abortion no longer feels like a necessary option to them. Because Lori is driven to never stop learning, she's a truly helpful teacher on this topic. Have a listen and consider how you might expand your own thoughts, words, and actions in the pro-life movement.

Producer's Note: There is some sort of audio issue with this episode, hopefully it's not intolerable to listen to. We finally wrap up our 1997 retrospective, dear listeners. This week, we travel down the Amazon in search of bad accents as we discuss Anaconda. The late 90s creature feature is stocked with a top notch ensemble of newcomers and a high profile veteran. But, does it keep us in its grips? We talk about colonialism, mid-90s CGI, Jon Voigt, and much, much more!

“As long as we dare to dream and don't get in the way of ourselves, anything is possible—there's truly no end to where our dreams can take us.” Hilary Swank On the episode you will learn: The Neuroscience behind ✔ Why our dreams are so weird, highly emotional and often forgotten. ✔ With a BRAIN STRATEGY you can use to improve your waking life, with your brain and sleep in mind. For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. On today's EPISODE #226 and Brain Fact Friday, we are going to dive deeper into the research of Dr. Baland Jalal, who has studied the phenomenon of sleep paralysis and dreams for the past decade, and see what we can learn from our brain, while dreaming. To do this, we are going to review what's happening to the brain during sleep paralysis, and during our REM/dream state to see what we can learn from this understanding. I hope this will open up our level of awareness and help us to understand how our dream world can impact our everyday, waking world. What is Sleep Paralysis? Dr. Jalal and I discussed this terrifying experience in depth on our recent interview, episode #224[i] and most of us can relate to this experience, but wonder what it is, and why it happens, in addition to many other questions I had about dreams themselves. You can see Dr. Jalal's lectures on this topic, where he explains what happens to our brain when we sleep and that we even see things we might say were ghosts. Now that I have heard Dr. Jalal's explanation of what happens to our brains when we are dreaming, I definitely think of my brain now, when analyzing my dreams, with this new awareness. Which brings us to this week's Brain Fact Friday where I want to explore sleep paralysis, why dreams are so weird, and why are they highly emotional, and do this, with our brain in mind. SLEEP PARALYSIS DID YOU KNOW that during REM sleep (when we dream) there's a part of the brain in the brain stem that paralyzes the body to keep us (and our sleeping partner) safe[ii] and another part of our brain (the cortex) that's responsible for our perceptual awareness. Occasionally, we can wake up when we are still in REM sleep, and are perceptually aware, but unable to move as we are paralyzed. This is sleep paralysis, and can feel terrifying, if you have no idea what's going on. I learned from Dr. Jalal that in this state we can also see what we think is a ghost, or which he explains is “an illusion that your brain creates” in the Temporal Parietal Junction (that's close to our Occipital or Visual Lobe) that can project a sense of our self, outside of our body. Have you ever felt or seen something like this and thought it was a ghost? Seeing something like this, paired up with feeling paralyzed can be a terrifying experience as I told him in the interview, and he agreed, with his own sleep paralysis experience. Then, our brain doesn't like the feeling of incompleteness and it will make up a story of what you are seeing. Dr. Jalal explains that in all of the years he has done this work, he has found that our cultural background can influence what we think we are seeing. It took me some time to make the connection, but the ghost I saw, was not far off from an 18th Century Englishman, or even someone wearing the outfits of the guards at Buckingham Palace. I did grow up with a photo of the Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip in my house, and this made me think it could have been the reason why my ghost was of British decent when I was actually in a house in Vancouver, Canada. My brain created this image from a past, cultural memory. WHY ARE DREAMS SO WEIRD? DID YOU KNOW that there's a part of our brain called the Dorsolateral PFC[iii] (a region of the frontal lobes associated with executive functions like working memory and attention) (Curtis and D'Esposito, 2003) that put concepts together in a meaningful way in our life—and that during REM sleep, or when we are dreaming, this part of the brain “shuts off”[iv] so we aren't usually aware that we are dreaming? If you have ever thought “that dream felt so real” this is the reason why, and it also explains why everything in our dreams is messed up and backwards. One minute we are on a bus with friends we haven't seen in years, you grab one of your friends' hand, jump off the bus, and go to the movies, and the next minute, you are back in your childhood home, drinking tea. This is one of my bizarre dreams, and I'm sure you can relate with your dreams. Now that I understand Dr. Jalal's explanation of the part of my brain that puts concepts together in a meaningful way, shutting down during REM sleep, I can clearly see why everything in my dream is disjointed and doesn't make much linear sense. WHY ARE DREAMS FILLED WITH STRONG EMOTION, PAST MEMORIES AND PEOPLE? DID YOU KNOW that during the REM state, or while we are dreaming, that “four areas of the brain fire up: the visual spatial regions (that help people to find their way around the world), the motor cortex (creates movement in the body), the hippocampus (our memory center) and amygdala (that processes strong emotions like fear, pleasure or anger)” “Which is why dreams are often filled with movement, strong emotions, past memories, people, experiences and are irrational.” Mathew Walker[v] tells us on his podcast that's all about why we dream. If you can keep a dream log, over time you can see what's going on in your waking hours, and learn from your dreams. Usually our concerns, worries and fears will show up in our dreams in some way, and you can solve them once you are aware of what they are. To conclude this week's Brain Fact Friday, that came from our recent interview with the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis, Dr. Baland Jalal, we took a closer look at the neuroscience of our dream world, explaining why our dreams are so weird, often highly emotional and what we can learn from them. I have four brain tips to make what we have learned about our brain when we sleep, useful in our daily life. UNDERSTANDING SLEEP PARALYSIS: Once we know what sleep paralysis is, that our brain paralyzes our body to keep us safe, then we can understand what might happen if we become perceptually aware during our REM sleep, and stuck between our sleep and wake state. BRAIN TIP FOR THIS FACT: OUR BRAIN DOESN'T LIKE CONFLICT OR INCOMPLETENESS: So figure out what your story is, if you have had a sleep paralysis experience and it's left you feeling unsettled. I explained my British ghost that my brain created as an illusion to tell the story and fill in the blanks of the unknown. What was YOUR sleep paralysis experience, and how can YOU make sense of it? WHY ARE DREAMS SO WEIRD AND OFTEN FORGOTTEN: Since we now know the Dorsolateral PFC, the front part of our brain associated with memory, attention and putting things together in a meaningful way in our life, shuts down during REM sleep, we can now understand why dreams are so weird and events that happen are all over the place. If the part of our brain responsible for our memory is turned off, this explains why “95% of our dreams we don't remember” but we might remember the last few minutes, and last stage of our dreams if we are intentional about it. BRAIN TIP FOR THIS FACT: REPEAT TO REMEMBER: (which is John Medina's Brain Rule #5).[vi] If you want to improve this number see if you can remember your dreams when you wake up. Write them down before you do anything else, or they will be forgotten. Sometimes I'm not even awake yet, and I repeat the dream in my head while I'm brushing my teeth, to help me to remember and write it down when I can. Also, it will help if you are intentional about this practice and say “I will remember my dream” before you go to sleep at night. LEARN WHY DREAMS ARE HIGHLY EMOTIONAL: When we know what parts of the brain fire up during REM sleep, especially our amygdala that processes strong emotions, or past memories and experiences, we can now look for messages in our dreams, over time to see what common themes come up. If we can solve the problems that we find in our waking hours, it will help improve the other 1/3 of our life spent in sleep. BRAIN TIP FOR THIS FACT: SLEEP WELL, THINK WELL (John Medina's Brain Rule #7).[vii] Here's the im portance of sleep again. It keeps coming back on this podcast. John Medina writes in his Brain Rules book, that “people vary on how much sleep they need and when they prefer to get it, but the biological need for a nap is universal.” (Medina, Brain Rules)[viii] If there's something bothering you in your waking hours, it will show up in your dreams in some way, and will impact your sleep. To truly sleep well, leading to improved “attention, executive function, working memory, mood, quantitative skills, logical reasoning and even motor dexterity” (Medina) work out your problems, and add a nap to your day to keep your mind operating at its highest levels. While Dr. Jalal does put his neuroscientific mind first with every question I asked him, there were still some questions that he said science couldn't prove, that have a spiritual side. Instead of saying that some things are not possible, he leaves this up to us to keep an open mind, and perhaps in the future, new advancements in science could move us forward so that we could find answers to the spiritual questions of our dreams in a way to benefit our waking life. Until then, I plan to keep on dreaming, and learning as much as I can on this topic to share with you here. I hope you've enjoyed diving deep into sleep paralysis, why our dreams are so weird, and highly emotional with some tips we can all use to take our understanding and awareness to a new level. It really helped me to make sense of my sleep paralysis experience after interviewing Dr. Jalal, and thinking of ways that we can all use what we learned from his research. I do plan to keep an open mind moving forward to see what else I can learn from lucid dreaming, especially as it relates to improving our psychological well-being. See you next week and hope you have sweet dreams this weekend.

A New Solar is opening... - Expanding Forgiveness and Neutralizing Bullying Trauma - Bullying symptoms stemming from childhood and then continuing to adulthood can look like Depression, anxiety, appetite issues, loneliness, defensiveness, and even health issues. Triggers in your relationship and a lack of inner peace may be easy to experience if bullying is involved. Countless symptoms can start in childhood and bleed into adulthood by witnessing bullying. The key to healing on multiple levels is forgiving others, forgiving yourself, and letting go of the emotional energies created, absorbed, or shared during these bullying situations. Here are some samples of what will be worked on for seven days of consecutive Multi-Layered Healing. - Releasing and dismantling offensive energies absorbed from people that bullied you in any group, organization, or familial level. - Expanding your consciousness by enhancing any imbalances holding back charity and your true forgiving spirit - Releasing toxic cords, agreements, or vows to these manipulative people and allowing your full sovereignty to rise. Inner peace comes when a detachment of grudges and subconscious promises made to yourself that are not healthy will dissolve. Children 17 and under have experienced more bullying than we will ever know because a high percentage bury it inside. They can be included in this Solar Healing; And much more.

“Dreams are one of the great mysteries of science. In their bizarre complexity, they can reveal deeper truths about who you are at the most basic level.” Researcher at Harvard University and the World's leading expert on sleep paralysis, Dr. Baland Jalal Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/nE15JIqy5rU On the episode you will learn: ✔ Who is Dr. Baland Jalal, and how did he find his way to study neuroscience and sleep, becoming the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis? ✔ How is Dr. Baland connected to Francis Crick, who discovered the double helix of the DNA structure and Dr. V.S. Ramachandran? ✔ What is sleep paralysis and what happens to the brain while this is occurring? ✔Why is the time just before we go to sleep and the time just before we wake up important for increasing our creativity or gaining insight? ✔ Are premonitions real, and can we access important information from our dreams? ✔Can we actually travel to places we have never been? ✔ What is lucid dreaming and how can we gain insight from what we see in these dreams? ✔Can lucid dreaming be beneficial for our waking hours? ✔What advancements in neuroscience do you think could help us in the future with our dreams? For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. On today's EPISODE #224 (that was postponed from April due to our guest's busy travel and work schedule) we are going to go beyond where we've ever gone before on this podcast, and cover some topics that you might have questions about, like I did, and I've found Dr. Baland Jalal[i], from Harvard, the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis, who has published 48 peer reviewed academic papers as well as a book from Cambridge University Press, to answer our questions. We've covered dreams before, on EPISODE #104[ii], with Sleep Scientist Antonio Zadra and his book When Your Brain Dreams: Exploring the Science and Mystery of Sleep but I left out some parts of the dream world that I thought might be too weird for this podcast, until I heard Dr. Jalal connecting the brain to our dreams, and this changed everything for me. I mentioned on EPISODE #211, that when I first was introduced to Dr. Jalal, his team sent me an email with his Harvard Bio and a write-up about his work on dreams but little did I know that his work would open my mind to places it's never been before, as I began to explore sleep paralysis (something I've experienced—just once which was enough for me, I just had no idea there was a name for it), lucid dreams (that I flat out thought I was crazy for having), and learning how my brain operates while dreaming, which revealed more truths about who I am at the core than I knew before coming across Dr. Jalal's work. I've gone on to study English scientist and professor of neuroscience, Mathew Walker and often tune into his podcast that's all about sleep, the brain and the body[iii] to see how we can all learn more about ways to improve our sleep, which we all know to be one of our top 5 health staples. I did create this podcast to bring credibility to some of the concepts that used to be considered weird, but now, science and FMRI scans show why these practices that 20 years ago were not mainstream, are now commonly used in our schools and work environments. Before watching Dr. Jalal's lectures, I don't think I would openly talk about the experiences I've had with the dream world, but I thought if I've experienced these things, what if our listeners have also, wherever you are listening to this podcast in the world, and perhaps hearing from Dr. Jalal WHAT these bizarre things called dreams actually are, WHY we have them, and see if they can expand our self-awareness, and open up our world to a new level and even be used in a way to improve our productivity, creativity and results in our waking life. My mentor Bob Proctor was always challenging me to stop looking at life through the key hole, and instead, open up the door and expand my level of awareness. He would say, “Once the mind has been expanded, it will never go back to its original state. Awareness is not something you lose.” (Bob Proctor) When Dr. Jalal and I were working on rescheduling our interview, he asked me how early on a Sunday I would wake up, since he is currently in Europe, and my response to him was that I would wake up at midnight to speak with him about this topic because it's fascinating and I know will help all of us to expand our thinking. Let's meet Dr. Baland Jalal, and see if he can shed some light with what neuroscience can tell us about our dream world. Welcome Dr. Jalal, thank you for coming on the podcast, and helping all of us to expand our thinking about what happens in our dream world—especially knowing that this time takes up 1/3 of our life and that our sleep is such an important health staple. Thanks for being here today…I know you have been busy recording your second TED TALK and that you are in Europe now? I'm hoping you can shed some light for ways we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves through our dreams, and what neuroscience can tell us about our sleeping brain. Intro Q: I've watched all of your most recent podcasts, and had no idea how much I would learn from them. I really enjoyed your interview on The Ranveer Show[iv] as Ranveer seemed like such an open-minded person. You mention your beginnings on this podcast that I think are important to begin with since there's a lot more to you than we see without listening to your story, so I've got to ask, can you take us back to your humble beginnings, and then how you met your mentor (Dr. V.S. Ramachandran)?[v] Q1: Until I heard your lectures, I probably wouldn't ever admit to the fact that I had felt sleep paralysis. It's such a weird and scary experience, and you explained it EXACTLY as I felt it over 20 years ago. For those listening, can you explain what sleep paralysis is, why we become paralyzed during REM sleep, and what's happening in our brain to make this happen? Q1B: Why does it feel so scary? I had an experience that if I had not heard you say this, I probably wouldn't be mentioning it at all—but I thought there was a ghost laying on my chest. I could see him (in my head) and he definitely “felt” evil. Did my brain play a trick on me with what I was seeing and feeling or was there really a ghost in this sleep paralysis experience? Q1C) How did you become known as the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis and then I saw the topic of your most recent TED talk you how are you have designed one of the first treatments for sleep paralysis to help people who experience this terrifying phenomenon regularly? Q2: I think it's crazy that most of us have had these experiences, but we would just leave them off the table of our regular conversations with people, since they are just so weird. I actually remember asking a sleep expert years ago why I could “see things” in my head in those moments that I was drifting off to sleep. He wrote down the term “hypnagogia[vi]” and told me to study that. I can sometimes see people's faces and sometimes what I see foreshadows important events many years later. What can you tell us about the importance of this time before sleep and wake, and how insights can be drawn from what we see so we can trust what we see to be useful? 2B: Sometimes during this time, we can have the sensation of floating above our body. I know you've talked about this often, and explain what's happening in the brain for this to occur. Can you explain the part of our brain that's responsible for our self-awareness, (Temporal Parietal Lobe) and how we could possibly see another version of ourselves floating above our self? (Sup Parietal Lobe) Q3: Premonitions? Is there any TRUTH to what we are dreaming? Are there messages from our waking hours in our sleeping world? I think there are (after seeing common themes in my dreams from my waking hours) but what do you think? After your research and connecting science to dreaming, why do we have dreams? Are we supposed to learn from them? What part of our brain can help us to interpret our dreams? Q4: What about lucid dreaming. At the time I first wrote these questions (in April) I didn't know there was a name for this. There are times just before I wake up, or times just before I go to sleep, that I can see things. My eyes are closed, (but I can feel them opening and moving around in my head as I'm trying to see this vision in my head) that I think are lucid dreams. Some of these visions have helped me in life with massive life-changing decisions and others I have no idea what I'm supposed to be learning from them. One example I can give you that I have no idea what the purpose of the vision is—there's a hallway, and I can see people walking down the hallway. I know where this hallway is, and who the people are from what they are wearing. I've never been there before, but there's certain things in the hallway, in addition to the people, that tell me where it is. The last time I saw this hallway, I was able to (for the first time) zoom in on certain parts of the hall, and see photos on the wall, or the light at the end of the hallway, where the people were walking. I know this hallway is a real place, because I saw a news clip of it, and had this immediate feeling of recognition like “that's the hallway” but the camera in the news clip was shooting from a different angle than what I saw in my dream and I kept thinking…turn around, so I could see the hallway as I saw it in my head. What's happening here? How can see “see” places in our mind where we have never been before? I don't need to ask if it's real because I'm certain it is from what I have seen, but what's the purpose of have a lucid dream? 5: When we are “lucid dreaming” I recently learned from Mathew Walker's research that in this state, our PFC that usually shuts down usually in dreaming, lights up and this explains why we can actually interact with people in our lucid dreams, or gain control of our dream. I've always just been an observer (like my hallway example I'm standing behind the people) but recently saw that I could zoom in and out of the hallway and see the pictures on the wall--wouldn't it be neat if we could interact with the people we see, or even bring back something to show we really were there, like a pen from someone's desk or something. You mention that you had this experience, and that you put a piece of paper in your pajama pocket. Can you explain what happened to the paper? Do you know how to control lucid dreams so they could be beneficial for us? Q6: If lucid dreaming is real, and I think it is, couldn't we use this skill for improved productivity or creativity in our waking hours? Could athletes use this for mental rehearsal since dreaming of doing something is almost equivalent to actually doing it? What about in the workplace to gain access to ideas or answers to problems? Is there a way to enter lucid dreaming at will vs just randomly happen (which is how it happens for me)? I can't control what I see, it just happens. Q7: How can we “test” ourselves to see if we are dreaming or not so we can develop Lucid dreaming more? Is it like the MATRIX when Neo puts his hand on the wall and it either stops, or goes through? Can we do this to test if we are dreaming or not? What are you learning from your dream experiences to help yourself and others? Q8: For people to learn more about your work, is the best place to follow you on YouTube where you post your lectures? Thank you very much Dr. Jalal, for coming on the podcast, opening up my awareness BEFORE the interview, and giving us all an understanding of how our brain connects to our dream world. I hope it can help others to not be afraid of what they see during REM sleep, and keep searching for answers to help them in their waking hours, with whatever it is they are working on. It's been such a pleasure to speak with you. FOLLOW DR.

This episode is something of a love letter to my favourite mending technique: patching! Mending with patches is a beginner friendly option for giving most types of clothing and fabrics a longer life. Depending on your choice of patching fabric, it can be a bold statement, or a subtle repair. It offers plenty of opportunities for creativity, it can be achieved without a sewing machine AND can be deployed when other mending options fail you. Expanding on the patching sections from my book, ‘Mend it, Wear it, Love it!', in this solo episode I offer up ideas for creative patching and share practical advice on achieving a successful repair. Plus I talk through the steps for two different approaches to patching for those who are new to garment mending. Support the podcast over on Patreon! The step by step techniques outlined in this episode are adapted from my book ‘Mend it, Wear it, Love it!' which you can find HERE. List of materials and equipment you'll need for basic patching: Fabric to make patch Fabric scissors Iron Tape measure Fabric marking tool Hand sewing needle Thread (colour to match or contrast with your patch) Safety pins (use regular pins if your fabric is likely to be damaged by safety pins) Thread snips or small scissors A basic running stitch technique is shown in THIS VIDEO. A basic whip stitch technique is shown in THIS VIDEO. Examples of Sashiko-style stitching that I have previously attempted:

Toni Patillo This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guest, Toni Patillo. The two talk about the interesting career path that brought Toni to where she is today, the gratitude she has found in being able to help people in crisis, and how what she's doing in real estate today will change the game for the whole industry. In this episode, we discuss: How Toni's professional career started with Dick Clark Productions and Motown What transitioned her from the entertainment industry into real estate, and who helped to motivate this move What challenges she faced in the beginning, and along the way How the stock market crash of 2008 helped her to understand how much she could help people in crisis The interesting work Toni is doing in her industry now, and the difference it makes in the life of real estate agents What shifted in 2020, and how it is changing the game for the real estate industry Toni Patillo has spent the last two decades establishing herself as one of Los Angeles's premier experts in real estate, business, and mindset. Whether through her work as Principal and Broker for Toni Patillo & Associates https://www.tonipatillo.com or a host of the beloved Call Toni Real Estate Radio program, she has made a career of empowering people to improve their lives and their communities. With the launch of ‘Empowered Mindset,' she inspires her clients to tap into their genius and design lives and businesses that function in a flow state. As the daughter of two prominent civil rights activists, Toni grew up with a deep appreciation for the impact a passionate individual can make on society. The principles of charity, self-love, and progress would later come to define her career. After earning her degree in Business Administration from the University of Washington, she took her first corporate job. Still, it was not until she returned to her birthplace of Los Angeles that she started to realize her true capabilities. Toni's natural business acumen and ambitious nature made her a perfect fit for the entertainment industry. She took her first prominent position as Investment Manager for Dick Clark Productions, where she played a crucial role in making the company public. She went on to take the title of Senior Vice President with the legendary Motown Productions and de Passe Entertainment, where she continued her prolific career. After twenty years in entertainment, Toni began exploring new opportunities in the business world. Expanding the International presence of the South African holistic health and wellness franchise, Madame et. Monsieur proved to be a pivotal moment for her. She mastered her innate ability to affect people's lives directly. Though she would eventually sell the business, that spirit of generosity continued to motivate her as she began her career in real estate. Beginning with Prudential John Aaroe Realty in Beverly Hills, a luxury boutique brokerage and transitioning to Keller Williams Realty Santa Monica/Pacific Palisades/Malibu, for 13 years serving as the Broker of Record, she has guided and mentored thousands of realtors, home sellers, and buyers through life-changing real estate decisions, winning several industry awards in the process. She has since taken her successful Real Estate Brokerage Brand on to partner with the publicly traded eXp Realty, World Holdings, Inc, the Global Cloud-Based Brokerage, a disrupter in the industry that will allow her to stay at the cutting edge forefront of the real estate world for years to come. Toni is a contributing writer for In2ition Magazine https://www.in2itionmagazine.com a women's entrepreneurial publication. Currently, Toni is focused on Empowered Mindset, https://www.empoweredmindset.com where she employs the wisdom she has accumulated in her exceptional career to have a genuine impact on her clients. With teachings backed by decades of experience and ancient wisdom, there is no one more qualified to coach, lead, inspire, and guide entrepreneurs. Toni's love and passion for education have recently inspired a working partnership with Wealth Dynamics and Genius University.

In this week's show, Phil talks to Janet T Phan, the Founder and Executive Director of Thriving Elements and Senior Technical Product Manager for Amazon's Project Kuiper. She has a vision to develop and empower young women in STEM to make a sustainable impact and inspire the next generation of women leaders. Janet talks to Phil about the value in making ourselves replaceable in the industry. She also discusses why “no” can mean a whole new world of opportunities for you. KEY TAKEAWAYS: TOP CAREER TIP Technology grows every day. If we make ourselves as replaceable as possible, then we show up for ourselves, and allow our skillsets to be easily passed on to others. WORST CAREER MOMENT In a previous role, early in her career, Janet told her manager that she had aspirations to be a manager herself. This was met with derision by her superior, and unfortunately changed her attitude towards Janet into one of negativity. CAREER HIGHLIGHT Janet was part of a huge global launch that went exceedingly well, impressing the global leadership, despite their reservations about her way of implementing it. THE FUTURE OF CAREERS IN I.T IT is ever evolving and requires a universe of different backgrounds and perspectives to make its applications as universal as possible. This means that it requires inclusivity and diversity in order to function at its best. THE REVEAL What first attracted you to a career in I.T.? – Janet was inspired by her professor. What's the best career advice you received? –Do now, and ask for forgiveness later. What's the worst career advice you received? – That becoming a manager was almost impossible. What would you do if you started your career now? – Janet would focus on data analysis. What are your current career objectives? – Expanding into technical product management What's your number one non-technical skill? – A love of people. How do you keep your own career energized? – Exploring areas where true positive impacts can be made. What do you do away from technology? – American football, snowboarding, surfing, wakeboarding and other physical pursuits. FINAL CAREER TIP Anytime you face rejection or hear the word “no”, remember that NO stands for new opportunities. BEST MOMENTS (3:57) – Janet – “Train the next generation and make opportunities for them” (15:25) – Janet- “IT is an ever-evolving field” (16:41) – Janet – “There are so many opportunities for people who are from different backgrounds. You don't have to enjoy or love computer programming to be in it” (17:24) – Janet – “We need all personality types in order to make technology successful” ABOUT THE HOST – PHIL BURGESS Phil Burgess is an independent IT consultant who has spent the last 20 years helping organizations to design, develop, and implement software solutions. Phil has always had an interest in helping others to develop and advance their careers. And in 2017 Phil started the I.T. Career Energizer podcast to try to help as many people as possible to learn from the career advice and experiences of those that have been, and still are, on that same career journey.

Her goal is that her textiles will bring joy to your home and put a delightful spring in your step when you wear them. Francoise Lane is a Torres Strait Islander woman whose maternal family are from Kerriri. She identifies as both Meriam and Kaurareg. She is married to Andrew Lane and together they are Indij Design; a 100% indigenous owned, award winning architectural and design practice based in Cairns and operating since 2011. In 2013 Francoise developed artworks inspired by her connection to the Torres Strait Islands and exploration of visually storytelling. Her artworks have been adapted into repeat patterns and specified for upholstery and applied art to architectural designed structural screens. Expanding on the application of the design prints Francoise is designing a feminine A-line dress for women who have lived a loved life, in exclusively designed textiles. She has also designed fashion accessories integrating design elements of the textile art. "I'm instinctively drawn to subjects whereby patterns can create their own ‘energy' on a canvas. As an example ‘Sardines under the Wharf' on a large canvas creates a visual play of movement, like the stylised fish are swimming (pictured above)."Originally developed as artworks they have been converted into design repeats suitable for textile applications and applied art to the built environment.Recommendations throughout this episode:https://ciaf.com.au/https://www.indijdesign.com.au/https://www.francoiselaneart.com/ Website: www.blackmagicwoman.com.auFollow us on Instagram - @blackmagicwomanpodcastThe Black Magic Woman Podcast is hosted by Mundanara Bayles and is an uplifting conversational style program featuring mainly Aboriginal guests and explores issues of importance to Aboriginal people and communities.

Dr. Jeanette welcomes Shawn Murphy from Switzerland, author of Torn Between Two Worlds: Modern Medicine and Spiritual Healing, to explore the journey through the abyss of consciousness we are now in.Today, we are expanding our human, spiritual, and soul being. Our consciousness is challenging us to hold on to the past and old ways or open up to a different way of existing with new tools and beliefs. The abyss is the transition period we are taking as humans transforming from dense human forms locked in story and history to light energy beings with unlimited potential to explore.What was, what is, is no longer. What is the next step? Is it a step off, down, or into the unknown? Are you ready? Perhaps you are already far along your way and you haven't even realized it. When you know you are being guided, you are there for a purpose, and the old way of being is no longer you, then the door behind you closes and there is no going back. Along your path, you may encounter different types of energy forms, such as ghosts or dark energy and feel great fear to stop you in your tracks. All energy, dark and light, have a place in this world. All beings in human and spirit form are a part of this universe. All feelings and emotions are free to be explored and let go, just as the truths and beliefs that hold us back.Are you ready to start dancing in the abyss and untether your story?For more information on Shawn, visit: www.TornBetweenTwoWorlds.com For a free newsletter and book from Dr. Jeanette, visit: www.DrJeanetteGallagher.com Dr. Jeanette is a spiritual and wellness guide who supports you in navigating expanding consciousness, healing from past traumas, and exploring your ancestral lineage.

With so much anarchy and turmoil around us, our knowledge is our protection. Recognizing what matters and cutting thru the noise. Some benefit from the disorder. The most important information is now hidden. For those who knew it was happening, none of this is shocking. Fixed points in time do not change. The natural order and the crypto crash. NFT assets vaporized. Animal vessels housing our DNA in the VAX. Now we must ask what we should do. The disinfo board had plans. Dead cows, food shortages and water chemicals. So many are trying to silence us. Virgil Earp and some brand insights. There's a wave of change sweeping across the bio-dome. One match to start the fire. A video birthday present for the President.

Reconstructing the grassroots pension network in New Bern, North Carolina, through a broad range of historical sources, she outlines how the mothers, wives, and widows of black Union soldiers struggled to claim pensions in the face of evidentiary obstacles and personal scrutiny. Brimmer exposes and examines the numerous attempts by the federal government to exclude black women from receiving the federal pensions that they had been promised. Her analyses illustrate the complexities of social policy and law administration and the interconnectedness of race, gender, and class formation. Expanding on previous analyses of pension records, Brimmer offers an interpretive framework of emancipation and the freedom narrative that places black women at the forefront of demands for black citizenship.

Inclusion is DestructionI know that inclusion is the new buzzword alongside Diversity and Equity, but inclusion generally destroys the thing it invades. Inclusion does not empower, inclusion destroys.Expanding the definition of Marriage does not grow it, it destroys marriage.What does marriage even mean anymore?For all time, it was a man and a woman as a general rule.Yes there were some who abused that rule, but that was the rule.Now marriage is anything, and anyone, and however many people you want. Inclusion destroyed marriage.And now the focus is on Christianity. Inclusion destroys Christianity, and that is the goal.Christianity is by definition Christian.Half naked men dressed as women in a church or a library or anywhere that children are is not Christian. There is no scriptural argument you can make here.Yes, Jesus loves peopleHowever, Jesus calls us ALL to repentance. Luke 5:31-32Repentance is leaving behind the things of this world to follow Jesus.You may struggle with sexual sin.You may struggle with all kind of sin.Ok, Jesus calls you to repentance and a new life.The thing you don't get to do is bring your drag costume into Christianity.Much less perform for children.Today we look at some of the problems inclusion is causing in the church.Thanks for watching!

POV: You're washing off the day in a relaxing bubble bath. Your phone notifications go off; someone on the other end eagerly wants to purchase a five-figure package from you. This is the beauty of high-ticket sales and the reality for our guest Jessica Sealy. Jessica is a sales + leadership coach on a mission to build financially independent leaders who make a wild income + impact in the online space. Since starting her biz in January 2019, she's served over 150+ women, has generated over half a million in business sales, and has helped her clients achieve outstanding results like 6 figures in 6 months, multiple resignations from full-time jobs, massive multiple 5 figure launches, and more. In this episode, we cover… Booking $15,000+ packages from a bubble bath How to start expanding into high ticket sales Selling high ticket vs. low ticket How to stand out in this everchanging space Common fears around selling high-ticket "At the end of the day, when it comes to selling high tickets again, whether you've done it before or not. Trust is the number one factor you need to bring into a high ticket sales model." "Many people expect to roll in and build this super-profitable, successful business on day one. But it's like you do have to respond and listen, and you can have the perfect strategic game plan in place, like whatever you can have it all laid out. And then notice that no one is responding, even though you're doing all the work. You're doing the mindset work, and you're following the strategy. And it's like, Where are the people? You have to be flexible, and you have to be open to adapting and open to shifting and open? Well, you must also ensure your basic needs are met."
