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”.

Classy, fun, motivated, and inspirational.  These are the words I would use to describe Traci.  She has taken her life from burnout (a couple of times just to be sure) to bliss.  You will be touched by her honesty and transparency of self.  She is brave in her sharing and has now found the courage to help others along their journey as well.  Listen to this podcast and then go find her on her podcast at Journey To There or visit her website for some one-on-one coaching at

Hilda is what convinced me to have Coach Jennie on the show.  I LOVE that Coach Jennie has given a name to that dumb little voice in our heads that says, “I Can’t, I Shouldn’t, I Don’t Know, or my favorite, I Don’t Wanna”.  Coach Jennie does not wrap up her coaching skills in a warm fuzzy…she takes her signature cathartic shoves and pushes you outside of your comfort zone to realize our full potential in whatever field of business or personal passion you are pursuing.  Join the movement!  #HildaMustBeStopped!

Profane, but right on the money in showing you how to mentally declutter…I loved this interview with Sarah Knight.  I’ve put her advice to the test and it worked!  To-do lists, must-do lists, her 3-step plan to taking care of what you need to do so you can do what you want to do.  Her two best-selling books, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck and Get Your Shit Together are must-haves in your self-help library.

Feisty, fun, connected, and grounded…that’s how I would describe this incredibly talented and creative artist, Erin Stutland.  This interview not only embraces the need for her particular brand of workouts (combining powerful mantras with dance and kickboxing), but takes us on a time travel through her past, her delicious love story, and her new TV show out now called Altar’d on Z Living.  (Look for it on your local cable channels)  Enjoy this amazing interview!

“Vibrant Solutions for an Ordinary Life” Yep, that catch-phrase of Dr. Julie Hanks pretty sums up her work in a nutshell. Staying away from Burn-Out, Asserting yourself and speaking your mind without crushing the other person in the relationship or conversation is where Dr. Hanks excels. Listen as I delicately give her a scenario from my own life that she puts into perspective and shines a light on to help all involved move forward. This spunky therapist rocked my socks and if you let her, she will rock yours!

Start with a little humor, add a huge dose of struggles, add a lot more humor, then pour on the faith and that is the recipe to get a big-hearted woman like Kris Belcher.  Conquering cancer twice that left her blind for the lsat 13 years, Kris has found humor and faith in her journey.  It is not without anger and frustration along the way, but she is willing to help any woman in any way she can.  You are going to love this episode, especially the day after Christmas!

Profit Boss Radio is my new go-to for financial wisdom specifically geared towards women.  This episode is chock full of amazing information, but it also has a “sucking lemons” moment (more like years) for Hilary that makes her not only human, but a kick ass financial planner for those of us that need to change our money mindset and get out of our own way when it comes to our finances.  Listen, be a sponge, take lots of notes, enjoy today’s episode!

Fun! Fun! Fun!  Yes, that is how I would describe my interview with Stephenie.  Not only were we kindred spirits and found ourselves speaking more with our hands and facial expressions (wish you could have seen that!), but we just had a blast recording this interview.  You will fall in love with Stephenie’s enthusiasm, but you will follow her through hell if she asked you to because like all of us, she has lived through some deep dark trauma that has shaken her to her core and had her building roots to stand the test of life.  Listen to it, learn about it, apply the lessons in your own life where necessary.  Enjoy the show!

Ashlee Birk had every reason to lay over and play dead.  Her world was shattered in a moment, but through these amazing trials she has learned to create new moments to stand for what she believes in.  Through much prompting she then decided that others need to hear her story so that she can help others to stand as well.  This is a true story of taking a seriously sucking lemons moment and finding the joy of how to make sweet lemonade.
