    Strong, Powerful AND Feminine

    in Women

    I am WOman, hear me ROAR! Does a woman need to roar to get what she wants, to get her needs met, to have her way, and get her point across? Or can a woman whisper, speak softly, be vulnerable, soft, receptive, yielding, nurturing and kind and get every single desire of her heart met? That is, can a woman be Strong, Powerful AND Feminine?  


    Some say women have lost sight of what it means to be a woman. They say women have morphed into men...in dresses, that too many women have grown hard, tough, unyielding, i.e., masculine. Today's woman, so they say, knows how to bring home the bacon...but she has forgotten how to fry it up in a pan and make her man feel like a man.


    What do you think? Have you lost sight of your femininity? Would you like to embrace your kinder, gentler, softer, sensual side?  


    Together, let's explore what it means to be a woman today, and how we might re-awaken the Divine Feminine and use her powers for good.

    Powerful Personal Presence with Sandra Dee Robinson

    in Entrepreneur

    What do you think about yourself?  What presence do you bring to the world?  Do you share your unique brilliance with the world boldly?  Are you still waiting?  Are you making excuses which all really boil down to hiding your light from the world?  We have talked many times on Thriving Entrepreneur how needed and important you are to the world.  Even knowing that we often hide because we are focused on our own flaws, or emphasizing what we feel we lack in, rather than uncompromisingly sharing ourselves with the world.  So how do we overcome this? How do we become a powerful presence when speaking, presenting or doing video?


    Listen in as host Steve Kidd is joined by a well-known daytime actress, TV and radio host, product spokesperson and wildlife advocate.  The founder or Charisma on Camera Training Studio and Horsepowered Consulting.  The author of “IMPACT!  Secrets to a Powerful Personal Presence on Camera and Off” Sandra Dee Robinson


    Today we will learn some secrets to being comfortable on camera. We will discuss how to let the best you shine in video.  We will talk about why we may be shying away from being powerfully present and learn how we can be a Powerful Personal Presence.  Today on Thriving Entrepreneur

    Aging at Home, or Accommodating our Limitations

    in Health

    Robert Kaplan of "OK 2 Age at Home" speaks with Robin and Joyce about modifications that can be made to one's home to make it safer for yourself, for an aging parent, or for anyone with a disability.


    Our abilities change as we get older.  Sometimes it is difficult to accept that our capabilities have changed, and to accept and face the "new normal."  The most important thing it to avoid falling.  The older we are, the more serious an injury a fall can create -- falling out of bed, falling on the steps, or in the bathroom.  There are a number of modifications that can be made -- in ways that can enhance the value of the home -- that can make it safer and more realistic to remain at home.


    We need first to consider: is this the place where I want to be?  Is it accessible to grocery store and services? to social activities? or would it in fact be better to move?


    If it's the right place to be, then is it possible to live on one floor? or to add a stair lift?  Is it safe to get into the home? Should we add railings or a ramp?


    Is the bathroom safe?  Would it be wise to add grab bars, a shower seat, or a bathtub seat where you can sit first and swing your legs into the tub?  Is the floor too slippery?


    We discuss these issues and more on the Powerful Patient

  • Reducing Infant Mortality in the United States

    in Health

    DR. FORD HAS A CONFLICT.  WE ARE WORKING TO REBOOK THIS FOR NEXT WEEK.  SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. - JOYCE AND ROBIN


    What can we do to lower the incidence of infant deaths? Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Robert Ford, a retired obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) from West Memphis, Arkansas, now living in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Ford shares his insights into this problem, which is highest in the Southern states.


    Unfortunately, about 24,000 infants died in the United States in 2011. The loss of a baby remains a sad reality for many families and takes a serious toll on the health and well-being of families, as well as the nation.


    The death of a baby before his or her first birthday is called infant mortality. The infant mortality rate is an estimate of the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. This rate is often used as an indicator to measure the health and well-being of a nation, because factors affecting the health of entire populations can also impact the mortality rate of infants. There are obvious differences in infant mortality by age, race, and ethnicity; for instance, the mortality rate for non-Hispanic black infants is more than twice that of non-Hispanic white infants.


    What are the Causes?


    Fortunately, most newborns grow and thrive. However, for every 1,000 babies that are born, six die during their first year.1 Most of these babies die because they are—



    Born with a serious birth defect.
    Born too small and too early (i.e., preterm birth; birth before 37 weeks gestation).
    Victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
    Affected by maternal complications of pregnancy.
    Victims of injuries (e.g., suffocation).


    These top five leading causes of infant mortality together account for 58% of all infant deaths in the United States in 2011.

    Interview with a Couple Who Survived an Affair - The Joe Beam Show

    in Relationships

    Wonder how affairs happen? Why people become so emotionally connected to the affair partner?


    And if there is any hope of ending the affair and saving the marriage?


    In this program I interview a couple who survived the wife's infidelty. She fell head-over-heels in love with another man. They kept it secret for a while, but as usually happens, they finally were caught.


    Why did she decide to stay in her marriage rather than leaving for her lover? Why did her husband give her a second chance? How could he trust her again? How could they put their marriage back together? They did put it back together and it is strong.


    They tell their story and take calls about these and other questions you may have. Expect brutally honest answers and complete transparency.

    Adolescent Wellness

    in Health

    Bob Anthony has created an adolescent wellness program to help teens find and maintain emotional balance, and to prevent teen suicides.


    The program was developed in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Wellesley, Massachusetts, and three local hospitals.


    See http://adolescentwellness.org


    For programs and exercises for younger children, see http://wellness.whyville.net


    To find a Rotary Club in your area, please see http://rotary.org and look on the top line menu for "Club Finder".


    The 4-way Test mentioned during the program is as follows:
    For everything you think or say or do, ask yourself these four questions:
    1. Is it the TRUTH?  
    2. Is it FAIR to All Concerned?
    3. Will it Build GOODWILL and Better Friendships?
    4. Will it Be BENEFICIAL to All Concerned?
