This week I’m bringing you another previously recorded episode of The What’s Your Excuse? Show.
I’m sharing this interview with https://www.kimoneillcoaching.com”>Kim O’Neill
to celebrate our reconnecting on Face Book this week.
She was commenting on the news that I had been selected to give the closing talk for the podcasting school at next year’s PodFest Multimedia Expo.
She reminded me of an interview I did on her show many years ago.
Back then her show was called Perk Up with Kim, and I was blessed to appear on her show.
She is a woman who helps other women find the power within them so they can progress in their lives, businesses, or careers.
She does this by teaching them the power of the law of attraction and manifesting the things they want and need in their lives.
She also works with people on their interview skills to prepare them to put their best selves forward whether it is an interview for employment or being interviewed on podcasts and radio shows.
I love how much fun we had during this interview. We laughed quite a bit, and I hope this encourages other podcasters to have more fun while doing their shows.
If you’ve been saying to yourself that I can’t overcome my experiences, background, or personal excuses; then Kim is going to help you to act on your new belief.
Now on to the show
Ever since I was a kid, I have felt purpose-driven and career-oriented. I wanted to be an actress, a singer, a private investigator, make handmade books, and even be a dental receptionist (yes, for real). In my teen years, I made a long list of 20+ professions I’d love to have, and eventually realized I’d really love to help people with their *problems* in some way.
Today, I’m a former Crime Analyst turned Transformational and Interview Confidence Coach, as well as Host of the Every Day is a New Day Show. I coach big-hearted women in accessing their inner “Wonder Woman” so they can confidently be who they are and move forward in their life and career. I help you heal and release the past so you can manifest a more desired present. Making these shifts will support you in being able to feel strong, powerful and ultimately love yourself and your life more. I help you see your strengths more clearly, and teach you how to understand the informational value of your emotions and intuition. I support you in shifting perspective and taking brave, bold steps forward. I’m certified in the following: ICF Associate Certified Coach; Certified Law of Attraction Coach; Reiki Master Practitioner; Infinite Possibilities Trainer; and Spontaneous Transformation Practitioner.
Personally, I have always known I am a passionate, purpose-driven soul who wanted to both help people, as well as have an outlet for creative expression. For many years, however, I allowed my head (and “society”) dictate how I went about achieving that (without realizing it). Along the way, however, I learned it’s been my emotions that were running the show all along – and not fully understanding their informational value is what “slowed” me down. The good thing … is what we resist persists. And what exists, can be processed and transmuted … Or … eventually erupts, becomes a massive puddle of once-stuffed-down emotions, and won’t go away until we FINALLY take time to process them. Whew! For me, taking time to shift negative self-talk and release old hurt, expectations of others and fears of abandonment and more were all part of the process for me to be able to see myself and my life more clearly, so that I could move forward.
Professionally, as a former Crime Analyst, I learned what it means to take a leap of faith and say a bigger yes to my professional dreams of coaching, energy healing and show hosting. I also learned how to embrace my spiritual self and work with my energy, despite being surrounded by an abundance of Type-A personalities and emphasis on “practicality.” Through my personal experience and professional training, I am the logical choice for supporting you in knowing and embracing who you truly are; what you desire; shifting energies; and taking action to experience new possibilities.
I have made several of my own career transitions in the last 20 years, and while some have been scary, every one has been worth it. From Registered Dental Assistant to Human Resources Coordinator, from Voiceover Artist to Crime Analyst … to Empowerment Coach, Reiki Master and Show Host. I mean it when I say – There’s NOTHING you can’t do.
I didn’t get here in one full swoop, however. There have been many detours, and I’ve learned how to extract the lesson from every situation. I’m often seen as an optimist, upbeat and bubbly – and that is the real me.
You know what’s also real?
I used to struggle with negative self talk in such a big way, I was suicidal – more than once (oh how that has NOT been easy to tell people, but it gets easier each time.)
I had an absent father which absolutely factored into my relationships with men, as well as my own self worth (little did I know)
I got married and divorced in my early 20s – oh the hell … and the healing
I put myself through college and am absolutely a strong, independent woman … who now knows how to ask for help
I’ve struggled with learning to love my body my whole life … and I’m finally getting there
It was in 2008 when my world shattered more than it ever had up to that point, that I was grasping for straws – for something or someone to come and save me. With hindsight being 20:20, I eventually came to realize that was part of my “awakening.” When you don’t have a stable inner foundation, anything can take you down – leaving you primed to rediscover and step into who you truly are, more than you may have ever before. To read more about that experience, read my chapter in the Positive Minded People Book.
Now your world does not need to be crumbling in order for us to work together, however, as we do, you’ll develop more of your own stable inner foundation. You’ll be able to see and think more clearly. You’ll be able to heal and release situations that have been weighing you down. You’ll naturally become more confident and courageous to allow yourself to take a more valued role in your own life … and I’ll teach you how to work with the Law of Attraction as you’ll be ready for abundance to flow in more easily.
It’s not about where you are now, it’s about where you choose to go next. It’s about what you choose to think and believe is possible for you, and what you choose to focus on. Where focus goes, energy flows. Do you know where your focus is?
Whatever is going on in your world right now, I applaud you for being brave enough to take action and consider the possibility that there is still SO MUCH MORE to come for you. You don’t have to settle for a life or career you don’t love. Take time to care for you, and know that YOU are amazing. I will always believe this about you, even if you don’t – yet. I look forward to walking side-by-side with you on your journey forward. Never give up. Keep going. It gets better. 😉
