Are you an adult suffering the emotional impact of childhood abandonment? Does the fear that someone will leave you trigger these old feelings? Is fear of abandonment negatively impacting your life and all your relationships?
Special guest Amy Braido, host of the podcast Raising the Bar is with us today to candidly share the childhood abandonment issues that she has carried over into her adult life.
Most would describe Amy as an energetic burst of fury, humor, servant leader, and empathetic caregiver. She's known to put full effort and focused attention into any goal she sets. Yet, she didn't always live this way. Born to young parents, she was primarily raised by a single parent, spent time in foster care, and has felt the affects of being abandoned by her father. She moved often throughout her childhood. Realizing at an early age that adventure and experience comes with their own issues, Amy demonstrates resiliency more often than not. Hear how her life experience, choices and lessons, have shaped her character and how she is able to transfer negativity into positive opportunities for herself and others.
Amy is a budding motivational speaker, mentor for leadership development, wellness coach, figure competitor, and hosts the radio show, "Raising the Bar", on the Voiceamerica network. Amy is also co-founder and President of The Echo Foundation, Inc., a 501c3 non profit organization for adoption and orphan care projects in the U.S. and abroad. Echo is currently serving with a partner organization in Ethiopia as well. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or message her through amybraido.com.
