Lauri's Lemonade Stand

Welcome to the Lemonade Stand, A Positivity Podcast for Women with a focus on serving mature women into the next chapter of their lives in a determined and fun way (cause it’s my favorite age so far!). I am Lauri Mackey, a Certified Holistic Health Coach who promotes three elements of holistic health: psychological, physical, and social well-being. I believe that if you can find and maintain balance in these areas that you have the greatest capacity for happiness in your life. Life experiences and knowledge has made me a cheerleader of hope, a promoter of physical fitness and maintaining a healthy diet (I favor a whole food, plant-based approach), and then showing up in the world with the greatest capacity to serve. This service is why I started this podcast - to bring together the world’s leading experts on having fun, showing up as our authentic selves, and just plain finding tips, hints, ah-ha moments, and life lessons to help in our journey. “Sucking Lemons” moments happen to all of us, but this podcast is here to teach us how to make our own “Sweet Lemonade”.

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.  In this podcast we talk all about her journey with a lovely session on “Quieting Your Doubt” which leaves you with tools and insights in 4 steps to start kicking self-doubt to the curb.  Stephanie is a wonder and a delight and I’m so happy to share her with you in this episode!

“Hooking” takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to Meryl Cook.  Her path of homeopathy to breast cancer, how she healed through rug-hooking and journaling, and ultimately how she let her creative self come out of the closet in 2016 is an incredible journey filled with courage, bravery, tears, and finding positivity and healing along the way.  Meryl is now an accomplished authoress, speaker, and workshop facilitator in helping others find their way in their own healing process, no matter the illness of physical or emotional pain.  She is famously the beautiful silver-haired lady with blue glasses and is learning lessons in life a whole new way.  Enjoy this podcast and let her help you in your journey as well.

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.  Angie is the real deal, funny, and definitely a soul sister.  Have fun with Angie and I as we discuss the realities of life and how to navigate it happily.

“You’re only as sick as your secrets.”  And Heather Goodwin isn’t holding anything back on her journey from 436 pounds on a 5’2” frame to losing 303 of those lbs at the time of this interview.  Heather calls it The Butterfly Effect where’s she’s gone from a fat and furry worm who ate everything in sight to a beautiful butterfly.  She even had to cocoon herself for awhile to finally find her way.  You will be impressed by her honesty, but most especially about her journey back to health staving off high cholesterol, sleep apnea, food addiction, bad acne, joint paint and inflammation, and morbid obesity…all with a beautiful smile and great attitude.  Now she’s helping others find their way.  Come listen to this amazing story of courage and strength on today’s LLS podcast episode!

The truth, straight from our resident vegan cardiologist, Dr. Heather Shenkman is that we have the power to not only prevent the leading killer in the United States today (heart disease), but we can actually reverse it.  The @veganheartdoc talks about nutrition, exercise, sleep, total wellness, balance, and peace - all of which she has tested herself as an accomplished athlete and cardiologist.  Dr. Heather just opened up her very own Cardiology practice this year, got her new book published the end of 2017, The Vegan Heart Doctor’s Guide to Reversing Heart Disease, Losing Weight, and Reclaiming Your Life, and is living proof that this lifestyle will leave you not just surviving but thriving.  This is the last podcast in our Love Month series in February on how to take care of your physical heart as well as your emotional one.  You won’t want to miss this upbeat, fact-giving, possibly life-changing episode of Lauri’s Lemonade Stand, A Positivity Podcast for Women.

Lupus gets a swift kick in the pants from this amazing doctor who was diagnosed at age 16 with stage 4 kidney disease, endured 2 years of chemo and yet still attended and graduated medical school while giving herself shots daily to prevent strokes.  Through all of this she is indeed the eternal optimist who like her mother and grandmother are powerful and strong warrior women who “hover with love” in helping others achieve their dreams and kick diseases like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis to the curb.  I’m not talking about remission here, ladies…I’m talking about HEALING from lupus and other autoimmune diseases.  It can be done!  Dr. G talks hope, love, optimism, and green smoothies in today’s episode of Lauri’s Lemonade Stand.  “You weren’t born to suffer” - let the healing begin.

“Self-care is not selfish. It is the foundation for serving others.” If this was the only thing I knew about Kim Maravich I could have based this entire podcast on this one point, but she also helped me find grace in my New Year’s Resolutions being completely derailed unexpectedly last month. These two things are enough to have you dive into this podcast headfirst and without hesitation. Come on in, the water is glorious! If that isn’t enough for you, we also talked about Kim’s latest book, 360 Health, Your Guide to Cancer Prevention, Healing Foods, and Total Body Wellness which proves that cancer can be avoided by forming some good habits are your food and well-being. Join us inside for this special treat with Kim!

Who Am I?  What Do I Want?  How Do I Get It?  Christine Hassler knows what it’s like to answer these questions, find answers, then ask these questions again to continue our journey’s on what she calls “Our spiritual beings that are having a human experience”.  We are human which means that our human selves are going to make mistakes and trip up now and again.  But each time we go through having a “breakdown to get to our breakthrough’s” we add more tools to our toolbox that put us on the path to building our better selves.  This interview is nothing short of inspiring and I can’t wait for you to hear it and find one thing that will help you in your journey towards your dreams.

Potato Love!  I have always loved potatoes.  I’ve even read about a few people who have experimented with a mono-food diet for 30 days and even a year.  I’ve read about marathoners eating nothing but potatoes, but Jeannine Elder is the first person I got to visit with one-on-one and learn her “why” behind her system called “The Potato Reset”.  I am so convinced it can work that I’m trying it myself as this podcast airs!  From an incredible back story of bad health and bad relationships (including the one with herself) to this HUGE following of potato lovers and Jeannine’s new book/cookbook called the Potato Reset, she is a YouTube sensation at “Potato Wisdom” and gives us a special insight to why it works here on The Lemonade Stand.

Goal Setting is a beautiful, messy, frustrating, sometimes overwhelming, but totally fun thing to do.  Goals in our heads rarely get accomplished.  Goals written down?  Way higher potential of coming true…but goals that are written down and throw in an accountability partner?  90% chance of coming true!  Listen in to my report of last year’s goal-setting and what I decided to do different in 2018.  Wishing you health, happiness, fun and success in 2018!  Let’s Rock This!

Experts in financial independence, early retirement, and debt pay-off…these millennials are well-versed in the art of making (and keeping) money.  2018 has me focusing on financial matters and turning Lauri’s Lemonade Stand from a philanthropic stand into a money-making venture.  That means learning from the experts and while these wonderful ladies are not in their 40’s, their lessons can help any of us ladies who are looking to find financial independence in 2018 (or just pay off the holiday debt you just got yourself into).  From financial apps, to their separate blogs, to their new FireDrill Podcast, these ladies are rocking it with sound ideas to incorporate right now into your new financial goals for 2018!  Have fun and get busy!

Deep self-care can mean different things for different women, but Jamie’s Self-Care Manifesto is one of the most complete descriptions I’ve seen out there that has me screaming from the rooftops that YOU can accomplish it!  Imagine…expressing yourself completely, showing your wild side, talking to yourself with kindness and compassion, doing more of what makes you happy and less of what doesn’t.  Don’t just dream about it…make it a reality!  Jamie offers tips that you can put into practice immediately, but I guarantee you’ll be begging for more by the time you get to the end of this podcast interview.  We had a great time together and that really comes through during our visit.  Kick sugar to the curb, get out of your own head, believe in yourself this holiday season and into the new year with Jamie Mendell.
