Episode #30 emPOWERment
Whats keeping you from true empowerment?
The other day I was having a conversation with a close friend who was sharing a difficult decision that she had to make and now was regretting it. She had called me to ask my advice –and at the time it seemed like a decision of time and money, but I realized it was much more than that, it had to do with her empowerment.
So many times,we hear others talk about the importance of being empowered but little do we know how to go about it and the deep connection it has to our soul. She had just started a business that had taken off rather nicely, and out of the blue she had gotten a call from a former employer who wanted her to do a presentation on her experience with XYZ. She hesitated, her instincts told her to say NO, she rattled off an email of her time constraints, and they came back with another date and a sweeter deal, at which time she felt guilty and couldn’t say NO.
Episode 25: Brian Rollo Interview
What’s your life story?
For me, 2020 was a year spent reflecting on my life story and I thought, “Boy I could write a book!”
Something I think ALL of us have in common when we look back….I mean, everyone has at least one book in them, right? This made me ponder, what is my life story?
I was reminded of a high school reunion I went to for my dearly departed sister. It was awesome seeing old school mates that shared great stories about her…but what struck me was that I felt most people saw me as someone with tremendous loss. It was something about the way they looked at me.
CIRCLE OF COMFORT: Getting 2021 Ready
Circle of Comfort… is what we know is safe from change. What we are comfortable in – that area of our life we know and we control. The cup of coffee in the morning, the warm and fuzzy slippers, the beach vacation that has you laying on the beach in a hazy lull of delicious splendor in which you never want to leave.
Comfort. This is life. We tend to get into a rhythm, one that we know and expect.
The older we get the more we tend to stay in our Circle. The years pass, our dreams are shreds of the past, and we go on plugging – wondering “what would have been if…” but we shrug it off with too old, too late. The things that we are comfortable with, the ones that we are used to, are now the standard. No more adventures, no more living “la vida loca,” just day in and day out sameness.

Episode 17 - Unconventional Leaders
Are Tech Giants Really Harming Our Economy?
Last weeks Judicial Committee hearings with Top CEO's from Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple can't help but leave American's questioning the motives of political representatives. Typically an investigation of this kind targets one company, but this one was unprecedented with accusations of censorship claiming BIG Tech was out to get conservatives, and anti-competitive behavior claiming that they have too much power.
According to the vast majority of representative the dominance of these tech giants is harming the economy because it leaves consumers with no choice but to use their products and services. My feeling on this was that geesh, really? These four companies got to where they are because they are good at what they do and consumers preferred them over alternative platforms.
Episodes 12 thru 16 - Sacred Contracts of America
In all of our Evolve 360 Show topics the common theme Cheli & I have been discussing is our relationship to POWER in its many forms. We have also introduced many archetypes that influence us, in particular, the 4 Survival Archetypes. What you may not have realized is that the same forces that play a role in the MICRO Level of your life also play a role on the MACRO Level in the birth, development and evolution of a nation!!
For July 2020, Cheli & I put together a special 5 part series on the Sacred Contract of America to celebrate the Independence and Freedom of our beloved nation and to continue the evolution of what our founding fathers began in 1776.
Episodes 7 & 8 - POWER & SOCIAL INJUSTICE
During difficult or challenging times, when things feel out of control and we're overwhelmed with anxiety or hopelessness, we may feel there is no where to turn. When we feel that powerless, it can be truly frustrating and we may wonder if our prayers are heard or if they work at all.
With the civil unrest in our country you must stay steady and focused on positive ideals. There is no small act of kindness that goes unheard even the simple thought of one positive intention that is held for a few seconds in your mind contributes to the healing of this country and the world. This is just a reminder to let you know that your thoughts have tremendous power.
