By her own admission, she had the perfect job, for the plan she had at the time. She went from a secretarial position, at a prestigious law firm in Ohio, to a key team player for political events and fundraising campaigns. And, while her career was going well, she realized that is was a fast-track to the "safe route", but not where she wanted to be. While leaving her firm was difficult, she knew it was time. "I knew I needed to go out on my own, because it just felt right. I was either going to sink or float and I needed to know which one ASAP, so I could move on to plan B, if needed. But, I haven’t needed it yet."
On the show, video marketing expert and founder of Vlog Boss Studios and Savvy - Sexy - Social, Amy Schmittauer talks about getting past safety and transitioning from full- time salary to entrepreneur.

Learning how to let go of her arrogance and inability to watch-over and protect the whole world, were lessons that were not easily learned. Like many of us, she thought it was her personal responsibility to make sure everything was done on time, under budget and with absolute perfection - unrealistic expectations that turned into spiritual and emotional unrest.
One of the A'Ha! moments she talks about on the show, relates to the injustice she personally experienced - Things don't happen to us, they happen for us.

After coming-clean with his family and admitting that they had been bleeding money and were now broke, his nine year-old daughter ran to her room and brought to her dad the best solution she could - her piggy bank.

Raised in a small town, in a faith-filled home, she was often singled-out and bullied because of her core beliefs. She didn't care though. As she explains on the show, she had seen miracles happen within her own family (her brother was born dead) and was convicted in what she knew to be true.
"Deathly" afraid of the stage, she felt God's strong tug, pulling her to California and into the world of acting. Knowing what was real for her, she and her husband packed up their few belongings and moved from the heartland of Virginia into a roach-infested apartment. As she explains on the show, she would rather move to CA and be wrong, than to be disobedient to God.
On the show, actress Jen Lilley (also known as Theresa Donovan to her Days of our Lives fans), shares hopeful stories of faith and possibility - Don’t put God in a box. His plans are bigger than yours.

To say that today’s guest has a diversity of experience and experiences, is an understatement. She’s worked as a computer programmer, classroom teacher, drug abuse prevention counselor, social worker and union advocate. And, while some may view her career’s journey as an unfocused study in experimentation and course corrections, it gave her a PhD in L.I.F.E., and prepared her perfectly for a rally – a second half rally of coaching, writing, and speaking.
One of the spiciest and sassiest boomer women I know, Inez Bracy joins us on the show to share how she reached a point where she could no longer get out of bed to go to a job she could no longer stand. As she left the unhealthy stability of a place and a paycheck, she didn’t know what she was going to do, but she was absolutely certain about what she was NOT going to to.

Driving the military-issue Humvee on late-night patrol, the night-vision goggles he was wearing didn't detect the thin, almost invisible trip wire, stretched across the road. The explosive power of the bomb blast sent the 10,000 pound armored vehicle, along with him and two crew members, through the air and into a ditch. He woke up on Christmas Day in Walter Reed Army Medical Center - His left arm and leg had been amputated from the injuries.
On the show, American hero Noah Galloway, shares how he sank into unhealthy habits, isolation, and depression, until the fateful moment of his decision and Relaunch! As you'll hear him tell it, a hard look in the mirror at the man, husband, and father (three kids) he had become, jolted him into fierce action.
Now, several years later, he is the 2014 Ultimate Men's Health Guy. If you've been to the store lately, you'll see him on the cover of the November issue of Mens Health.

With more than twenty-five years experience as a nurse, she knew how to handle patients, doctors, treatment plans, and ER situations. It wasn't until an emergency showed up in her own life (ulcers in her throat) that she was moved to find alternatives and remedies that modern science and medicine couldn't offer.
A captain in her own healing journey, she came to understand that the root cause of her condition had not been treated. While the drugs and surgery calmed and quieted the symptoms, they did not bring true healing. On the show, holistic coach Rochelle Forrest, talks about how she found her healing, power, and purpose - Life is playful again!
Two Fun Facts - Rochelle unwittingly started coaching people about their health and lives at her clinic, until the doctor told her that she needed to start a coaching practice, because that was what she was doing. He also said that patients were disappointed if they didn’t get to see her.
As she shares on the show, she came across a painting she did when she was just five years old. As it turned out, it was her first vision board.

Like many ambitious women, Mraci Shimoff set big professional and personal goals for herself - striving for accomplishment, with the common misunderstanding that: I'll be happy when ... Of course there was satisfaction in hitting her numbers and meeting her own expectations, but she wasn't finding what she truly was searching for - happiness.
Science has cracked the happiness code. On the show, celebrated transformational leader and #1 New York Times bestselling author, Marci Shimoff, talks about the difference between being happy for good reason, and Happy for no Reason, giving four simple steps that can change your life.
Other great points Marci covers:
Why happiness increases success;
Four statements that can reunite families;
How she moved from a D+ to an A- in her own happiness.

In the midst of a thriving entrepreneurial career (speaking, marketing, consulting), just about any serious health scare (let alone cancer) can cause us to slam on the brakes. When the news came, it forced him to think about things (his family's well-being and legacy) from a different perspective and with a different understanding. While he now had a built-in excuse for self-pity, slowing down, or giving up, as he enthusiastically explains on the show, to him, cancer was a gift. It caused him to be laser-focused on the work he was here to do and the difference he was here to make. One the show, 7-time bestselling author, Mike Koenigs, talks about how to write a bestseller in record time.
While writing changed his possibilities, life and lifestyle, the how-to steps he mastered, gave him the tools that would empower writers, speakers, coaches, and equip the next wave of bestselling, difference-makers.
We all have at least one book in us. Read Publish and Profit. In it, Mike lays out a 5-step system for how to attract: paying coaching and consulting clients, traffic and leads, product sales, and speaking engagements.

His dad gave him two unorthodox pieces of parental advice – “Never get a job with benefits”, and “Go to where the action is”. He didn’t want his son to end up trapped in a dead-end job; hanging in there for the promise of lower health insurance premiums, a mild annual cost-of-living raise, and a once-a-year paid vacation. He also knew that, for his son to realize the dream of being a country music performer, being in the right place, would put him with the right people. On the show, Chad Jeffers, is the man on dobro and guitar for Carrie Underwood’s band.
Mistakes for entrepreneurial rookies to avoid: Viewing people in the same field (in his case, musicians, authors, and speakers), as competitors.
Business advice: 1) Have an abundance mentality – realize that there is more than enough to go around; 2) Create alliances with people in the same industry and business; 3) Play with as many people as you can; 4) Push yourself to be better than you were yesterday; 5) Be willing to become part of the fabric of your community.
Immediate action steps (If he were starting over from square one tomorrow) – 1) Keep creating; 2) Find ways to help others and be of service; 3) Make new friends; 4) Create new opportunities.

A broken marriage left her to raise five kids on her own; the loss of her job compounding the already tough situation she was in. Her instincts took over quickly and her focus shifted immediately to survival. With no time self-care and healing, she scrambled and did what any parent would do - whatever she had to. Within a few days after her termination, her phone began to ring. As it turned out, the relationships she had built and developed through the years, (former coworkers, friends, and clients), were throwing her the lifeline she needed for a single mom ReLaunch!
While the back-on-her-feet opportunity was available, her commonsense voice cried out "no". After all, she knew very little about running a business, doubted her "capability" and had extremely limited funds ($500).
However, as our guest Shanna Gray explains, God said "yes". And, when she received His answer as confirmation, she felt a warm and secure "bear hug of peace and love".
Trusting God, she found favor with vendors and decision makers and began to build her security business from ground zero.
It's been said that the best way to learn about yourself is to start a business.
As painful and as heart-wrenching as this experience must have been (I would never pretend to be able to fully understand the range of emotions she went through), the courage, conviction, and resourcefulness she tapped into reflects, who she was all along.

While she learned to tolerate life in front of the camera, her unsatisfying career as a newswoman and an anchor, led her to a dangerous addiction, poor relationships, and low levels of self esteem. She would sometimes sneak away from the TV station early, running away from the job she grew to hate. Her moment of truth (the clarity to leave) came as a literal punch in the face. BAM! And then BOOM to the floor. She was sucker-punched by a victim's family member, whose murder trial she was covering.
Away from an environment that had become toxic, she was able to get clean, healthy, and happy. On the show, Joleene Moody talks about leaving the past behind, stepping into the unknown, and how to start a career shift.
Understanding and embracing her calling, she brings clarity, confidence and direction to individuals, speaks to and motivates crowds, and transforms audiences with her common sense and often comedic approach.
During the Christmas season, 2014, Joleene's first full-length comedy, Visiting Bammy Lewis, will debut at CNY Playhouse in Syracuse, NY.

If life is a highway, he was on the fast-track - a six figure-a-year salary, a dream car, and unlimited possibilities. As he slid behind the wheel that night, somewhere in another part of the city, someone who had one to many trips to the bar. was fumbling for his keys. Out on the open highway, he hit a cool speed of 70. Driving the wrong way in the same lane, the other driver slammed into him at a combined force of 140 MPH, crushing 11 of his bones and leaving him trapped behind the wheel.
Pronounced dead at the scene by emergency workers (clinically dead for six minutes, in a coma for six days), our guest not only defied the first responders, he refused the diagnosis of paralysis, and defied the logic of the medical community. On the show, bestselling author of The Miracle Morning and Taking Life Head On, Hal Elrod, talks about the two times he hit rock bottom since the accident and how he was able to come back stronger and more confident than before.
This is gold >>> Hal gives the specific details and A, B, Cs of his miracle morning routine - actionable tips that can improve your life immediately.

Wise beyond her teenage years, she wanted to create something that really meant something. In her own beautiful words - ”I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem." With not much more than a vague dream, high hopes, and a guitar slung over her shoulder, at 18, she left behind everything she knew in her native born country of Sweden - friends, family, and security, in search of herself and her purpose.
After a year in London, wandering, growing, and playing anywhere she could (sometimes crashing in the home's of her fans), she launched her first album, funded entirely from a pledge campaign. Her fans and supporters raised the needed money in only four hours.
On the show is singer, songwriter and author, Charlotte Eriksson, better known as The Glass Child. Charlotte on her life's journey - "This is my story – it’s been a beautiful fight. It still is”.
It's been about four years since Charlotte made the bold, decisive move to step away from mediocrity and status quo expectations. Since then, she's started her own record label (Broken Glass Records), released 5 EPs and her critically acclaimed debut full-length, I'd Like to Remain a Mystery, had her single, I Will Lead You Home, reach #2 on the Swedish iTunes-chart, was named Breakthrough Indie Artist Of The Year by Lemonade Magazine, and has independently published her first book, Empty Road and Broken Bottles.

158 Comedian Ken Davis - From Flabby and Fluffy to "Fully Alive" - Lost Weight and Became a Triathlete in His 60's
Joking and poking fun at himself on the show, this former, overweight comedian and author, had to fight off the the well-intentioned, beach-front, bystanders, as they desperately tried to haul him back to sea. They had mistaken the family outing for a manatee rescue operation. OK, so maybe it wasn't that bad (although pretty close), when today's guest caught a glimpse of an oceanside picture of himself next to his granddaughter (her in a child's bathing suit, him in a MUCH LARGER ONE). It was the motivational jumpstart he needed to quit super-sizing, get in shape, drop the winter coat, became a triathlete and begin to live Fully Alive.
Thirty years ago, our guest, funny man Ken Davis, was called by The Dallas Morning News "One of the funniest comedians to come down the pike." (Let's pray that he's not only gotten better, but also has some new material.) He's a highly competitive athlete and is a gold medalist in competitive sleeping.

More about Ken - He is the founder and president of Lighten Up Ministries and is the host of Lighten Up Radio. So far, he's written 12 books, with one that’s been turned into a movie (Fully Alive). His current book project is Lighten Up - a 90-day devotional.

On the tail-end of a recession, seven years ago, our guest left a successful organization that he helped create. Through his own quiet time and reflection, he realized his season there was over, and that it was time to take his wife’s hand and enter into a new one – this time as the leader and number-one guy.
Gary Barkalow, founder of The Noble heart and author to one of the meatiest books I’ve ever read on purpose and calling, It’s your Call, joins us on the show to share his false-starts, lessons learned, and best ideas for success.
Path of Development – After two years of initial growth for The Noble Heart, finances became tight as business began to dry up. While he had extensive experience in business and in ministry leadership, as the front-man, he was now in unchartered waters, with only himself and his wife Leigh, manning the oars.
Calling it quits (almost) – During one of his lowest moments, he saw a move called Money Ball; Brad Pitt’s character takes on the job of rebuilding the dysfunctional and broke baseball team, the Oakland Athletics. In the movie, the manager realized for his team, what Gary would go on to realize and apply to his organization. (See “AHA moments”)
Advice for people going through career transition: “An important question to ask during major career transition: what was this past experience that’s true of me, that I need to bring into this next thing, even if it looks different on the surface.” He also adds. "Just try it, if it doesn’t work, it prepares you for the next thing you are doing.”
AHA moments – To be a front-runner and to win, you must learn how to play the game differently.

As the weekend drew to a close, the dread of facing another week, wore-down her emotions and well-being. And, while she was pulling down a six figure salary (not bad for a 24 year old who had bought her first house at 19), the healthy paycheck lost it's appeal, once she realized the unhealthy price she was paying - red eye flights, days away from home and family, and spiritual unrest. Tolerating it for a season, once she decided to have a child, all bets were off. She knew she needed to create her own opportunity, work from home, so she could be available for her husband, son, and self.
Today, she hosts one of the hottest shows in the podcast world today and has interviewed and featured millionaires from many different industries and walks of life.

It was a tremendously moving experience for him - He was sitting by his step-father's bedside, during his last days, where he saw a vision of his own funeral. It was a sobering jolt that quickly caught his full attention and straightened out some of the ideas and beliefs, by which he was living.

Howard Partridge grew up on welfare in Mobile, Alabama. He arrived in Houston, Texas on a Greyhound bus with 25 cents in his pocket. At 23, he started his first business out of the trunk of his car and built it up to a multi-million dollar enterprise.
Howard is the exclusive small business coach for the Zig Ziglar Corporation and teaches small business owners, around the the world, how to STOP being a SLAVE to their business.
Entrepreneurial Rookie Mistakes: Becoming a technician rather than an entrepreneur – spending more time working in the business rather than on the business. You can’t grow BIG trying to do it all yourself.
What contributed the most to his success: 1) Clarity of vision; 2) Building relationships; 3)Positioning; 4) His willingness to learn and be a student of business.
Best business advice: The one and only reason your business exists is to be a vehicle for your life’s goals. Once you’re clear on your goals, you’ll have clarity on how to design and guide your business.
Phenomenal business ideas for aspiring entrepreneurs: 1) Start part time; 2) Understand how your business will be built; 3) Begin immediately building your list of prospects.
Immediate action step (If he were starting over from square one tomorrow): Find the person or company that is already working with the clients he wants, and then offer to serve. A perfect example of this is what he did with the Ziglar corporation. He understood that the kind of clients he wanted were already with Zig. He then offered to help (no strings or expectations). The result was, he was invited in. Howard is now the exclusive small business coach for Ziglar.
