    Rise to the Occasion of Your life with Kristen Moeller

    in Self Help

    Coach Cafe' is thrilled to rebroadcast our interview with Kristen Moeller, M.S. author of 'What Are You Waiting For? Learn How To Rise To The Occasion Of Your Life'!
    After losing her dream home and all her worldly possessions to a raging and sudden wildfire that killed three people and demolished 21 homes, Kristen Moeller dove headfirst into an exploration of our cultural discomfort with grief, the existence of God, finding humor in the midst of tragedy – and what it means to be a human being with all our fabulousness as well as frailties.
     
    Drawing on her two decades of training in psychology and personal growth as well as her own recovery from addiction in 1989, Kristen is a voice for the countless others who beg to be heard in their wild journey through this wacky world.
     
    During her TEDx talks, stand-up comedy routines as well as appearances on local TV and newspapers, Kristen shares her hard-earned wisdom coupled with a spirited inquiry around the raw emotions we encounter when dealing with life’s ups and downs.
     
    As part of her commitment to others finding their own path to freedom, Kristen founded the Chick-a-go Foundation (now the TransformationFoundation.org) which provides ‘pay-it-forward’ scholarships to transformational education programs.

    Waiting for Jack: Kristen Moeller

    in Motivation

    Steve is joined by bestselling author Kristen Moeller for an entertaining and empowering conversation about life, motivation, and her book, " Waiting for Jack". Kristen is a coach, speaker, author, and radio show host. She delights in “disrupting the ordinary” and inspiring others to do the same.

    The book, "Waiting for Jack", shares authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers.
    Too often we are Waiting for Jack—whatever or whoever “Jack” is. So we don’t try; we give up. We sell out and we forget who we are. We are afraid to succeed, afraid to fail, and afraid to say we are afraid. But as Wayne Gretzky said, “You'll always miss one-hundred percent of the shots you don't take!”

    Waiting for Jack will inspire you to get on the path, move forward and take the shot. And to remember that you don’t have to wait for Jack!

    Waiting For Jack - An Interview with Kristen Moeller

    in Self Help

    Listen in to this inspirational and enlightening interview with Kristen Moeller, author of Waiting for Jack. It will inspire you to get off the proverbial couch and stop waiting for whatever you think must happen before you start living the life you were born to live—fully and completely.

    Kristen has written an unconventional yet life-affirming chronicle that is part memoir and part how-to guide that will inspire you to end the eternal search for something outside yourself, stop the endless waiting for answers from others for your stalled life, and finally--to live your best life by falling in love with your own humanity.

    Plain and simple: Learn how to stop waiting for all the “jacks” in your life—whatever they are! Listen in to this reformed self-help junkie, and take charge!

    Kristen has walked her talk. Her personal and powerful life transformation offers real-life instruction in how people caught in a “bottomless quest of self-help” can stop the waiting and hoping for direction from others and move forward to embrace their own life every day in a “fierce disruption of the ordinary.” Her life was wrought with challenges —just as most of us have. Hers included years filled with addictions from severe eating disorders, alcohol and drugs. Her life continued to evolve as she earned her master’s degree and resolved her co-dependency as a “self-help junkie.” Kristen now enjoys a very successful career as life coach, speaker and author, among other accomplishments.



    About the Author

    Kristen Moeller is a highly respected coach, author, speaker and radio show host who holds a master’s degree in counseling and has more than 20 years experience in the field of personal development.

    MODESTO BEE SPONSORS WATER SUMMIT

    in News

    Modesto Bee sponsors water Summit


    July 15, 2015   7-9 at the Gallo center


    The forum will be moderated by founder and former president of the Great Valley Center and former Mayor of  Modesto, Carol Whiteside.


    Whiteside left the great Valley Center when Bob Gallo discontinued financing the venture.


    As Mayor of Modesto. she is known for “Curtains up 88” that gave us the convention center and closed 10 Street which created a campus for the then First Baptist Church and cut off downtown Modesto.


    Whitesides credits are many. She was paid $15,000 with M ID money to lobby for the sale of water to San Francisco.


    It would be more informative, if the Bee had Carol Whiteside as a panelist, rather than the moderator.


    The five panelists are Jeff Cowan, Randy Fiorini, Sarge Green, Felicia Marcus, and Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen.


    The panel will engage in a conversation on valley water.


    The panel will bring their facts, viewpoints, and opinions to the discussion.


    In the interest of transparency and qualifications, each panelist should be asked if they went to the microphone during M ID meetings to oppose the sale of our water to San Francisco.


    We already know that the moderator was paid to lobby for the sale.


    We should thank the editors of the Modesto Bee Ken Riddick, Joseph Kieta, and Mike Dunbar.

    Hugh Mann, the kindest person in the world, who could not be moved to berate the hate slung at him from the right.
    K Renee Davis Pelt, the coolest person in Evansville, Indiana!
    Ray Riley, who until this podcast recording was only a facebook friend and now has risen to the status of awesome.
    Kelsey Hollis, a personal friend and seriously awesome person.
