    Mindful Shift - a conversation with Jennifer Iacovelli

    in Spirituality

    Today I am so excited to be joined by author Jennifer Iacovelli who wrote the beautiful  Simple Giving - Easy Ways to Give Every Day - 40 Ideas to Make Your World a Better Place.  I recieved this book in the mail right after getting back from the 2015 Water Conference (more on that later!).  It was the perfect gift and way to restart my program.  I started Mindful Shift after taking a leadership course from Dr. Riane Eislers Caring Economics Program.  It got me to focus on what I really wanted to do and how to make a difference from a heart based place.  The phrase 'do what you love and find a way to get paid for it', or some versions of this, always sounds slightly off to me.  I am looking forward to talking to Jennifer about this and so much more!   Jennifer is more than a writer, she is a speaker and consultant.  She has worked in the nonprofit sector, handling communications and fund-raising, for more than ten years and writes about philanthropy on her blogs Another Jennifer and Simple Giving Labs.  As chief engagement officer of the Another Jennifer Writing Lab, Jennifer helps entrepreneurs, bloggers and nonprofits tell their story.  She writes for Mom Bloggers for Social Good as part of the Global Team of 200 and is a regular contributor to World Moms Blog and HuffPost Divorce.  Jennifer is also contributing author of the book The Mother of All Meltdowns.  Her work has been featured on GOOD, BlogHer, USAID Impact, Feed the Future, and the PSI Impact Blog.  She is based in Brunswick, Maine.  That is awesome!   I am looking forward to this!!   For more info check out Jennifers website at simplegivinglab.com or her book at tarcherbooks.com.   Peace and sparkles, Andrea

    Being Mindful

    in Spirituality

    What is the value of living mindully? How does one accomplish being mindful? Are you truly aware that it is up to us to direct our minds and not have our minds direct us. It is a Zen and Tibetan tradition to know what the mind is doing in all moments of our lives. Our minds are the very thing that creates our very experiences. This is why it is said that we attract to us what we are not what we want. This occurs because we do not consciouslyoperate our minds or thoughts. More times than not we let our minds tell us what to do instead of us telling our minds. Buddha stated that it is ok to think but do not identify with what you are thinking. By so doing one indeed does become mindful. We all are our own writers and producers of our lives yet we do not necessarrily own what we write. We write our own script with our minds. Being mindful is knowing what you are thinking. It is not written any where that we have to think negatively. Life is simply an expereince that we bring to ourselves constatnly. Join Liara and Steven for another great show on being not simply thinking. Call and join in on the conversation 718-664-9735 is the number share your thoughts and ideas on being mindful.

    Let's Talk About Doing Your Business Smarter

    in Business

    Colm Kelly ... Founder of Do Business Smarter, a business coaching, consulting and strategy training center just for small business owners, joins me today to have a discussion on 12 core business ownership skills and marketing strategies you need to survive and thrive in 2015 and beyond. Colm has been helping small business owners work smarter for over 20 years, and today I want to pick his brain on  why so many business owners seem to struggle for ever while others to make it to the top.

    Colm has met, spoken to and worked with thousands of small business owners during his 20 plus years as a business owner and business adviser. Many of those business owners achieved reasonable success, some completely failed, but a few of them achieved HUGE success. Not because their product or service was any better, but because the owners were serious and committed to constant improvement. Because of their commitment and drive, they achieved the ultimate business owners dream; a business that makes them huge profits without them having to be there all the time. Most business owners today are experts in their field - they have experience, skill and a drive to succeed, yet still 96% of them fail in the first 7 years. The folks that fail didn't do so because they didn't know their product or service, they failed because they didn't have a solid business structure and system to follow. 

    If you are a small business owner that is serious about growth and wanting to work smarter not harder ... this podcast is for you!
