"Balance is impossible. Memories are better."

In this episode, I interview Marci Fair (www.marcifair.com), mom of 4, founder of www.kares4kids.com, and author of "TILT - 7 Solutions to be a Guilt-Free Working Mom"

We talk about 3 of the 7 solutions, including:

• Dreams and Goals - you don't have to give up on your own to help your children pursue theirs

• Choices - including the "dirty gym shorts rule"

• Roots and Wings - what do you think about this - "The less we do for our kids, the more we help them develop!"

If you struggle with working mom guilt and want real-life parenting tips - read TILT!

What if I told you some of the most important conversations you can have - almost nobody is having? Let Tara Teng give you a new perspective on "social justice", as we talk about:

  • Feminist Economics - what is it and why it really matters to you
  • Human Trafficking - the fastest growing criminal economy so many are suffering in, but very few are talking about, and how we can talk to our children about it

093 - How to Set Your Prices to Increase Income & Impact, with Brian Dixon

August 11, 2020

Brian Dixon will look you in the eye with a big smile, and tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. That's why I had to have him on the podcast, as he is a wealth of knowledge due to his experience in coaching high-performing entrepreneurs, and as the author of the best-selling book, Start With Your People. Brian has so much wisdom on a variety of topics, including:

  • How to "start with your people"
  • The "Five F's" for success: Faith, Family, Friendships, Finance, Future
  • His concept of the "life calculator" which will help to clarify your goals in a super simple way
  • The HALT system of self regulation
  • How to "number your days" for maximum impact
  • The concept that "when people pay, they pay attention"
  • "What is easy to you, is magic to someone else" - love this idea for valuing your knowledge and expertise!
  • and much more!

Join us for this high-energy conversation that is sure to get you motivated to tackle your next goal today!

Brian mentioned many books during our talk, and here are links to all of them:

Special Episode -The (Surgically Repaired) Heart of Elaine

Special Episode -The (Surgically Repaired) Heart of Elaine

August 8, 2020

Ron here, aka "Elaine's Husband". As you know, 2020 has been a rough year for - basically the whole planet. For Elaine, she really has a passion for helping other women entrepreneurs and one way she has done that is by meeting with a local group of them in person, for about the past 5 years. And of course that is not happening anymore! So that's got her down a little bit. And today is her birthday, so I reached out via email a few days ago to about a dozen of her close circle of female entrepreneurs, and almost immediately I got 10 heartfelt messages stating birthday wishes and the impacts Elaine has had on these women's lives. So, since I have control of publishing her podcast, I thought why not put them out there for you to hear? Kleenex optional, I know Elaine will be bawling.

p.s. for details on the surgically repaired heart, check out episode 87 - The One Where I Had a Stroke.

092 - Discipline Your Kids Without Damage - with Dr Vanessa Lapointe, Registered Psychologist

092 - Discipline Your Kids Without Damage - with Dr Vanessa Lapointe, Registered Psychologist

August 4, 2020

Oh. My. Goodness. I have been searching all my life for a parenting expert who is at the same time a practicing Registered Psychologist, and will also use words like "grumpy bumps" and "yelly yells". Dr. Vanessa Lapointe is that person!

 

I adore Dr. Vanessa (ever since I learned she was recommending my products from Easy Daysies to her clients), and in this conversation she does not disappoint! We cover several kinds of discipline and determine what works and what does not:

  • Timeouts
  • Reward charts
  • Consequences
  • Grounding
  • Removal of privileges
  • Connection

Hint - only one of them works consistently and for the future benefit of your child!

 

These points are taken from Dr. Vanessa's brilliant book, Discipline Without Damage - How to get your kids to behave without messing them up.

It all started with a cup of tea while on vacation, and since then Tonia Jahshan and her husband Hatem have built a direct selling empire (like $20 million in annual sales big) in Sipology. Tonia slayed the Dragons on Dragons' Den (Canadian version of Shark Tank), was named the 2016 W100 female entrepreneur of the year for Canada, and she shares with us:

 

  • How she turned her love of a new-found product into a successful company
  • How it grew so fast her 5-year plan happened in 6 months
  • Her advice for someone starting a similar business now
  • How "self-care" can actually be counter-productive, and how actually care for yourself
  • How she sought help in a very dark time (Tonia is an outspoken proponent of mental health initiatives)
  • What her favorite tea for this year is!
  • And more!

You will fall in love with this incredible lady, whose #1 advice is - be kind. See, nice guys do finish first!
