ReLaunch - NEVER GIVE UP on Your Possibilities

While she had one of most successful teaching studios in the city (she taught classical guitar), she felt conflicted - the strong urge to shift her business focus and the fear of losing her existing students. As the pressure of procrastination pressed-in, her body responded with its own physical reactions - stress, colds, and other symptoms. When given the opportunity to create a program to reduce stress, she not only became her own needed solution, she discovered a wonderful alternative that would bring healing, health, and focus to many. Sound wellness healer Sharon Carne joins us on the show and shares.

One of Sharon's A-HA moments

The perfectionism of a musician doesn't always translate "perfectly" to the world of business.

Two things that helped her stay focused and on-track

  • She built a new circle of relationships around her;
  • She had in-place, solid affirmations.

Her ReLaunch! advice

  • Don't take things personally;
  • Focus on the people you are here to serve.

In her early 40's, every area of her life was in transition - health, career, and relationship. Busy and successful as a graphic designer, she became more and more distant from herself and her instincts; coping through the ups and downs by reacting and shutting down. Through introspection and self-education, she began to realize that she was worthy and deserved more (a lot more). Once that seed took root, she was ready to burst through her perceived limitations and become a Fabulous at 50 flower and founder - Dianna Bowes joins us on ReLaunch!

After voluntarily downgrading himself from manager to front-door greeter (without telling his wife), his plan was already in motion - to sneak out from his 10-year career with Costco, so he could move toward something that was more in line with his style and personality. While Costco was a good gig for him during his first half, climbing the ladder and earning a check, it was incomplete. He wanted, in a career, what most all of us want - to fully express our skills, abilities, and talents. Known by audiences as The Productivityist, Success magazine contributor and TED Talks speaker Mike Vardy joins the show..

The Itch to begin a Speaking Career

Somehow or another, he ended up in an improv class. And, with his first taste of on-stage performance, he has hooked.

Best advice

"Be patient."

What contributed the most to his successful ReLaunch!

  • Having a supportive wife;
  • He understood that he didn't have to scrap what he learned in the corporate world, he just needed to adapt it to fit his homemade business.

What he knows now that he wished he knew then

Don't try to do everything at once.

Complimentary downloadable resource - Mike Vardy's manifesto

Stop doing Productive and Start being Productive

Don't just pick stuff. Pick the right stuff.

Being selfish with your time can make you more selfless over time.

Don’t fight your body clock.

Set limits. They are your guardian against overwhelm.

Even though she and her husband already had six children, she began having dreams about a new baby; recurring dreams that lasted about six weeks. Fairly certain God wasn't hinting that they should have another child, over time, she caught the message. Author, speaker, women's leader, and very busy mom, Sue Detweiler, joins us on the show.

Prepare to ReLaunch!

She stepped up her entrepreneurial and business-savvy by attending conferences, reading books, and tuning in regularly to content-rich podcasts.

Books and conferences that influenced her the most during her ReLaunch!: 48 Days to the Work you LoveEntreleadership, and Platform.

As she immersed herself in new learning opportunities, she understood that they were stepping-stones in her overall personal growth and discovery.

Sue's no-hype un-sexy, very practical ReLaunch! tips

  • Keep putting one foot in front of the other;
  • The only reason you never get to your dream is if you stop.

In Retrospect

Sue, like many people, didn't recognize that some of the physical symptoms she experienced were her body's way of sending her signals that it was time to move into something else - to ReLaunch! if you will.

Sue's latest book - 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom makes a wonderful gift for you or the moms in your life.

When her son got back from a leisurely jog, he complained of a dull pain in his hip. Within months, the 14 year-old, basketball-playing, fun-loving boy, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma - bone cancer. And, while the doctor's reported that it has a 70% survival rate, the concerned mom heard that there was a 30% chance of her losing her son. Laura Sobiech, Zach's mom and author to the incredible book Fly a Little Higher,  joins us on the show and shares Zach's message of hope and encouragement - It's all about relationships and touching lives.

The beginning of his fight

Once he was diagnosed, Zach said - I think it’s part of something big.

Physically weak but spiritually and emotionally strong

Originally with a dime-store guitar, when he became to weak to play basketball and do teenage boy stuff, as his mother says, he found "shelter" in his music. One day, as Laura was cleaning his room, she found the lyrics to a song that would quickly go on to become somewhat of an anthem. (The original, very homemade recording for his song was done on his cell phone.)

Wonderful lessons we can learn from Zach

  • Don’t let a future that doesn't exist yet, squash the present moment.
  • use your talents well, whatever it may be, to make the world a better place
  • Use simple means to make other's life better, like putting smile on their face.

The Legacy

Zach not only knew that he was going to die, he knew when he was going to die. And, after a courageous fight, is 2013, he passed; but not without leaving us with his beautiful messages and a song - Clouds. The You Tube video has been viewed more than 10 million times. (check out our list of inspirational music videos)
