These sisters! Both doctors in their respective fields, these beautiful women (and sisters) have come together to share their skills, knowledge, and wisdom surrounding healing through love and the mind-body connection. Reducing stress, getting the right amount of sleep specific to you, eating in a mindful way that encompasses not just your body, but your soul and your senses are all things that Farzana and Farhana are focusing on with their new website and business happywisewell.com. Come on in and learn about their backgrounds, why they chose the name “HappyWiseWell” and just feel their smiles as they talk about their passion in helping others.

I know you’re going to enjoy and glean great things from them - enjoy!
Word games are a passion of mine. From Scrabble to Words with Friends and I adore Crosswords from Dell. Mary Shores is all about words - words that count and words that can make a difference - if you let them. Come on it to this podcast and learn about powerful words like “Cleanse or Clog”, what the “Core Four” is, and how you can stop that negative self-talk reel that’s stuck on repeat in your head. Mary has said, “Everything we say, everything we do, every choice we make in the thinnest sliced moments of life is either creating a connection to what we want or it’s driving a disconnection.” This interview gives examples of this so powerful that it truly can be life-changing. Mary even offers our listeners a Free Daily Desires Diary Bundle which includes the Daily Desires Diary, a new daily practice to help you reflect, set goals, and take action, as well as a bonus excerpt of Conscious Communications to jumpstart your motivation.

Smoked cinnamon. 5-spice powder. The microplane. Vegan parmesan cheese. Smoked sea salt. These are all things I decided to add to my kitchen after this beautiful and fun interview with Chef Charity Morgan. Turns out we grew up an hour apart in Northern California (you never know what you’re going to find out during a podcast interview!) and that Charity has loved to cook since age 5, made a full meal at age 8 that blew the mind of her father, cooked for her friends after school as a teenager, learned about the word “culinary” as a young adult and that propelled her into attending and graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena. Take this a step further and Charity is not only making amazing meals for her family, but for her husband, Derrick Morgan (linebacker for the Tennessee Titans) when his nutritionist says to cut back on inflammation and recovery time and that he should try going plant-based. Charity followed suit and now not only is entirely plant-based, but cooks for a bunch of those team members as well and is loving it all! You can find recipes and helpful hints on her website chefcharitymorgan.com, but you’re just gonna love getting to know Chef Charity Morgan in this episode! (PS - She tells her love story on how she met Derrick! Adorbs!)
Connections are the lifeline of women. Connections with our authentic selves, connections with family and friends, connections with our business colleagues and Sara Blanchard is an expert in all of them! Break out of your cycle of making yourself power through something and do what Sara suggests, “The reality is, humans are social creatures, and we do our best when we are connected in a web of relationships that support us.” This podcast talks all about these connections and teaches you how to get to know yourself better through encouraging play and even laughter (can you imagine?). Since learning about Sara and doing this interview I have upped my game in my connections with girlfriends. I’ve reached out through voicemail messages, set up movie dates and even a double date with one with our hubbies. The proof is in the pudding - this works! Sara is an inspiration. If you are feeling like you could improve your relationships, this podcast is DEFINITELY for you!
Doodling has never taken on this kind of fun wrapped in sophistication.

Come on in to this podcast and learn not only about doodlelovely.com, but find out the benefits of single-tasking vs multi-tasking, Melissa’s version of #Recess, and even a simple exercise you can do today to start your doodling journey of self-care.

Eidetics was foreign to me as a word and a practice, but after this interview, the imagery inspired by the direction of Wendy Yellen - mind blown! This interview brought tears and emotions and feelings rising to the surface, but with Wendy’s soft touch in guiding brought about joy, lightness, and ultimately love. Don’t dismiss Eidetics out of hand just because it might be something new to you. Learn about it, see it for what it is - life-changing. Life-changing in a way that sticks, not in your mind kind of change, but in your heart and soul kind of change. Don’t be a skeptic or think this is just another “woo-woo” type of healing. Open-minded will find you with the results you seek. Wendy has my vote and I’m going to her website, www.MeAsIWantToBe.com, taking the imagery challenge and contacting her for my complimentary Transformation Acceleration Meeting because the work we did together felt so good! I’m challenging you to jump on over – watch the video, experience eidetics for yourself, and then apply to have a conversation with Wendy about what this unique work can do for you. For a real treat - listen to this podcast and listen as Wendy guides me through a session of Eidetics - this is vulnerability and authenticity at its best!
Integrity is like Honesty on Steroids - it is a whole new level of honesty that encompasses being honest with yourself (even when no one is looking). Kelley Kosow’s new book, The Integrity Advantage is chock full of inspiring stories from herself and other women who have found their best selves from the inside out, instead of the other way around. Kelley teaches women how to love themselves with the same love they would give to others. She coaches that it’s ok to be human, but that our goal of our souls is to evolve. In this podcast we not only talk about her book, but how we can add in self-care and gratitude to our lives to create the highest level of self-satisfaction, confidence, hope, empowerment, and above all, INTEGRITY. Come on in and enjoy this beautiful podcast with the CEO of The Ford Institute, Kelley Kosow.
Empath’s and HSP’s (Highly Sensitive People) were a conversation I had wanted to have for months now and I was honored to have Priscilla Pancoast-Crockett step up to the plate and talk about not only her own experiences as an HSP, but all about her new book, Care and Feeding for the Highly Sensitive Soul - A Real Talk and In Depth Guide for those who care for, protect, and support an empath, intuitive, or otherwise defined highly sensitive person. This podcast is a fun, empowering, enlightening talk about this subject. In my learning, I realized that I am definitely at least part HSP, but more importantly I learned that a very close female relative of mine is most definitely an HSP and I was able to learn how I can best support her in her journey. Priscilla is upbeat, totally knowledgable on the subject and simply a joy to visit with. Enjoy this amazing LLS podcast episode!
There is a quote from one of my favorite books, The Count of Monte Cristo, that goes like this: “There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of ultimate bliss.” Dotsie Bausch reminds me of this quote. From a debilitating eating disorder and unsuccessful suicide attempts to being a 7-time USA Cycling Champion and silver medalist in the 2012 London Olympics, this lady is living the life of ultimate bliss. I can’t wait to see her in the upcoming movie, Game Changers coming out this summer and if you really want to get to know her better, follow her on social media and learn about her last week’s rescue of a baby duckling! This lady is for real and I know you’re gonna LOVE her in this week’s LLS Podcast!
Truly you are guided to what you’re meant to do if you but only listen. Dr. Rosane’s favorite quote says, “Nothing changes until you change. Everything changes once you change.” She is the epitome of her favorite quote and I can’t wait for you to hear about her beginnings in Rio de Janeiro, then to Germany, the University of Illinois, and now UCDavis in Sacramento as the Director of Integrative Nutrition. She is loving, kind, a lover of books (consuming 3-5 per week), and is encouraging in wherever your journey is currently taking you. We talk about her twin sister, her education, her whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle, and of course the answers to Lemonade Moments at the end that have us laughing and sharing like women should! We are stronger together as women and this interview shows that!
Tap, tap, tapping! I’ll admit, prior to this interview I was a virgin tapper, but EFT tapping has intrigued me and I’m betting by the end of this episode you’ll be doing a deep dive as well. Why? Because anything in our crazy lives that can bring a sense of calm and self-awareness is worth the try! Pam’s new book, The Power In Your Fingertips: Calm the Chaos and Lower your Stress in 15 Minutes or Less! is available now on Amazon. Feeling overwhelmed? Just open up that section of the book and follow the tapping sequence. Getting kicked around by your inner critic? Open up the bonus section of her book and tap it away. Listen, this tapping thing is here to stay and is even now being used on soldiers with PTSD. Give it a go! Listen to this episode and then follow Pam Horne on social media - her zone of genius is in deep healing and greater expansion in your life and business. Happy tapping!
“Healthy Perception vs Healthy Reality”, this is one of the things I will remember most about this interview with the incredible Female Entrepreneur, Kara Goldin. Well, and the fact that on her wishlist to interview on her own podcast, Unstoppable is Prince William - I hope she gets her wish! Kara is bold in business, but it is executed with her heart. Hint, Inc took sweat equity and a bit of bootstrapping, but it started by the need for her to be healthy and solve a problem. All of her ventures since then from her new sunscreen (you can find it at Target!) to her new podcast and “The Kara Network” all carry Kara’s enthusiasm, heart, and solid business savvy to all new levels of awesomeness. Enjoy today’s podcast episode here at Lauri’s Lemonade Stand by learning more about this incredible woman.
Being loved shouldn’t hurt. Stephanie’s first marriage almost left her dead on her wedding night and yet she tried desperately for another five years to make it work before finally finding the strength and courage to rescue herself. It would take other life-changing events from losing relatives and legal issues to physical problems before she got her wake up call, but she was able to learn and find self-healing, self-love, and self-motivation through schooling, affirmations, her best friend (now her husband), and a thriving business. She is out to help others find their own healing through relationship and dream coaching in her business called Mind and Body Awakenings and by telling her full story in her new book, Being Loved Shouldn’t Hurt, Recognize and Overcome Toxic Relationships So You Can Live Your Best Life.

“Hooking” takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to Meryl Cook.

I’ve done interviews where my guests have been in closets and even interviewed a beautiful authoress who was blind, but Aimee Walker Pond is the first deaf person I’ve interviewed and she was amazing! Aimee loves to talk and she made me want to learn ASL just so we could visit more often. Aimee was born deaf and also blind in one eye, but she became an elite gymnast despite of her disabilities and tells everyone that you have “No Excuses” for pursuing your dreams, big or small. Aimee is full of energy, is beautiful and kind and is currently running her own gym for budding gymnasts. Come learn more about this incredible woman in this week’s LLS Podcast!
Compose Your Soul - How to Turn Your Daily Chaos into Calm Control is Angie Nuttle’s new book and I can’t wait to get a copy! I would probably want to buy it just for the cover (that Angie created herself by the way!), but I need her inner genius that’s in that book. If you’re like me and find those “life-sucking inner critics” sapping you like an energy vampire or you find that you are an OPP (Overly Productive Person) like Angie, or worse, and OCD OPP (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder wrapped into an Overly Productive Person) then this book is for you! This podcast interview will give you Angie’s uniquely qualified background and start you on the path to implement something today to help you find your sense of calm in your otherwise chaotic world.
