    Episode 28: The Most Forgotten Step In Letting Go

    in Self Help

    Letting go is so much easier said than done. Our tendency is to hold on with all our might…if we just held on a little tighter, we would get what we wanted. If only we could hold on a little stronger, then we would be happy. Then one day we realize, it’s not in the holding on, it’s in the letting go. When we learn to let go, we are free. By how do we do that? I was never taught how to let go in school. Were you?

    We learn through the School of Life. Today on Love, Trust & Pixie Dust, MIT molecular biologist turned philosophical author Greg Marcus, Ph.D. and I have an important lesson to share with you. Come join us as we share a radical method for letting go.

    in Music

    When you look in the mirror do you see someone with a stirring in your heart, with a dream I’m going to refer to as “Gandhi-sized,” which means it doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, what matters is it’s a dream that you believe will make a positive difference in the world. A dream that actually makes you want to be the change you want to see in the world. But what does that even look like? It looks like our guest, Laura Sullivan, Grammy winning composer and recording artist. Join us as Laura shares with us how she’s spreading love all over the world, being the change she wants to see in the world.

    Episode 26: The Magic of Strengths

    in Self Help

    I grew up having my weaknesses pointed out to me: “Fix this, work on that.” Isn’t that the way you were brought up also? Truth be told, I’m sure I’ve done this to my own boys too many times to count—it’s kind of what we do as parents—and as teachers, and as bosses…the cycle keeps repeating. But what if we focused on what we’re good at instead? At what our brains are already wired to do well? Michelle McQuaid, best-selling author and workplace well-being teacher, is here today to share with us exactly how we can take our strengths and propel ourselves even further, and do it with less effort! Join in and learn why focusing on our strengths, rather than on our weaknesses, is better for us at work, at home, and in life. Start to practice these methods today!

Artie doesn't make messes. He has a unique habit of collecting things. The other Dust Fairies don't appreciate Artie's collection of tidbits, so he spends his nights alone. One cold night, Artie's loneliness leads to inspiration, and he creates something legendary. His story will have families looking at Dust Bunnies in a new light and may actually give kids an excuse NOT to clean their rooms. Artie's story helps kids realize that we all have unique gifts and not everyone fits in with the crowd.  Buy at: www.amazon.com/Legend-Dust-Bunnies-Fairys-Tale/dp/0991624475/

    Episode 25: Broadcasting Happiness

    in Psychology

    Do you believe your behavior matters? Right from the start, let me share something with you: You are more powerful than you know. Today’s guest, Michelle Gielan, former news broadcaster for CBS news and current executive producer of The Happiness Advantage on PBS, is here to share with you perhaps the most significant life-role you will ever play: the role of broadcaster. No matter if you see yourself as mother, father, husband, wife, employee, the boss—it doesn't matter, listen in as you see how you are a broadcaster, too—your voice matters. You broadcast every day to your employees, to your spouse, to your children, and to yourself. What messages are you broadcasting? Ones that lift others up or bring them down? Ones that light you up and ignite you, or ones that make you feel small and less than? You are more powerful than you know. Your behavior matters. You matter.

    Ask For What You Want, And Get It!

    in Self Help

    Why is it so hard for women to get off their ask? To stand up, shoulders back, and clearly ask for what they want, deserve, and long for? Forget about the shoulders back, forget about the clearly asking for—often women won’t even manage a whisper about what they want—the best you can hope for is a hint at their desires. Then we wonder why we’re stuck doing all the work at the office, at home, being an emotional ear to all of our friends, and feeling drained and depleted. Join us today, as we speak with Michelle Peavy, a woman who designed a program she used herself, to Get Off Her Ask. It’s time to speak up and ask for your heart’s desire!

    Indie Cafe & Red Velvet Media ; Eilon Paz, Dust & Grooves !

    in Entertainment


    Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting is an inside look into the world of vinyl record collectors in the most intimate of environments—their record rooms. It all started out several years ago as nothing more than a way for photographer Eilon Paz to make use of his idle hours. Adrift in Brooklyn after emigrating from Israel, Eilon—a record collector on the side—thought it might be fun to start taking photos of people whose record collections were both larger and weirder than his own.

    Adopting this as his personal project, he began traveling the world, from Australia to Cuba and Argentina to Ghana, in pursuit of intriguing and memorable subjects. Unearthing the very soul of the vinyl community, the assembly of portraits he created quickly turned into the Dust & Grooves website.

    In the summer of 2012, Eilon launched a Kickstarter campaign that funded his road trip to shoot collectors throughout the American heartland, and since then, the project has been embraced by many friends and supporters who have volunteered to work with Eilon along the way. This year, Dust & Grooves expands even further, complementing the website’s cloud with a physical book that profiles over 130 vinyl collectors with photographic essays and in-depth interviews.

    Dust & Grooves has engaged and connected the underground community of record collectors. As well as becoming a go-to place for vinyl lovers, it maintains the integrity and history of vinyl, as well as the musical heritage that goes along with every record in these collections. As technology moves forward and many music formats go digital, Eilon’s endeavor helps keep the rich, warm, analog life of vinyl spinning.
