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”.

World 24-Hour Champion in mountain bike racing (along with numerous other mountain bike wins) and Whole Food Plant-Based Eater, Sonya Looney believes in being Brave and Doing Epic Shit.  In fact, it’s her slogan that she has used as her personal mantra for years!  Pushing past boundaries, being courageous in all aspects of life, her daily gratitude practice, her anti-inflammatory diet, not to mention her amazing love life with her dear husband Matt will inspire and empower you.  You might not feel up to riding a 24-hour, multi-day, 50-mile, or 100-mile mountain bike race after listening to this podcast, but there is no doubt you will smile and feel better for having listened.  Want more Looney?  Visit sonyalooney.com or visit Sonya on all of her highly active social media sites!

Love that Simi Botic felt honored that if my dog snored under my desk during the interview (hubby out of town and puppies were with me on recording day) that she would be deeply honored.  It shows the true character of Simi as what I learned of her to be…a woman of character, kindness, and beauty.  Her story from corporate attorney to her own craziness around body image to the deep desire to help other women has me wanting to just hang out with her more often.  Luckily, you can hang out with her here on LLS for the next hour…enjoy!

Miss America 1985 has kissed her share of frogs!  Now, I don’t mean that as a physical truism of course, but Sharlene Hawkes is author of the book, “Kissing a Frog” - Finding Comfort Outside of Your Comfort Zone which I have read and highly recommend.  Quoted as saying, "I decided when I was a girl I would never not do something because I was afraid”, she has lived by this law her entire life claiming nothing goes as planned, but she is the better for it.  Find out how you can replace the word “change” with “adventure”, that anything can be learned given “time and patience” and how you can take your stagnant pond to a growing, thriving ecosystem of amazing life!

Steampunk Romance is Nancy’s new groove of writing and I am in love!  I read her first quest into this new series called Beauty and the Clockwork Beast and can’t wait for her next steampunk in 2018.  But don’t wait to read this and other Proper Romance novels like my favorite, My Fair Gentleman in stores now!  Nancy’s imagination and her ability to take your emotions (ALL of your emotions) to another level is astounding.  The mystery and suspense, the love and passion, the humorous and grit will all leave you on the edge of your seat and when you’re done?…begging for more.  Dive into the world of all things Nancy Campbell Allen in this week’s amazing interview of this incredibly talented author.
