Episode 60: Ways to Change Eating Habits Even When We Resist with Suz Carpenter

Episode 60: Ways to Change Eating Habits Even When We Resist with Suz Carpenter

July 2, 2020

Three things in life – your health, your mission, and the people you love. That’s it. Naval Ravikant

If you’re like me (even though my health is not very good), you become resistant at the mention of healthy eating. Bean sprouts and radishes – yuck. Give me a good ole hamburger any day. Right? Yet, the more I learn about healthy lifestyles and chronic illness, the more I hear about eating the right way. Like a carrot dangling in front of the horse to get him to move, health and feeling good is my carrot. 

Of course, when we don’t feel good, our business suffers as well. That’s #2 of the quote above. Our mission is wanting to have the best business and doing the most to help others that we can. Without being healthy ourselves, that makes it harder to complete #2.

Finally, I want to be around for the people I love. I want to be able to do things with and for them – not just having them wait on me endlessly because I can’t do anything for myself. That’s #3.

In today’s conversation with Suz Carpenter, I had (and hope you will too) an AHA moment. You don’t have to stop eating everything you love, just start one step at a time by adding in one good thing and maybe not eating as much of one bad thing. She was a down-to-earth proponent of living a healthy lifestyle and also shared with us how these changes can help our business. As well, we talked about some of the things she herself (also a chronic illness warrior) has done to help her business, when perhaps all she really wanted to do was Take.A.Nap. This is a great show today.

June 4, 2020

Even on a good day, life can be overwhelming – especially if you have some form of chronic illness. And when you are the chief, cook and bottle washer for your small business, balancing all those hats can send you right to the corner screaming. Going through your mind is probably something like “I have to do this and this and this. How am I going to do it all?” Guess what, nothing gets done.

That’s when having processes and strategies in place to help you through that panicky feeling of bouncing off the walls. Join us today as Sandee Rodriquez and Nancy talk about how you can go from barely breathing to getting the most out of your day.

Episode 42: Disabled to ENabled with Jessie Ace

Episode 42: Disabled to ENabled with Jessie Ace

May 28, 2020

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -Francis of Assisi

According to Business.com, self-employment is a very popular choice among people with disabilities. The Small Business Administration reported that 12.2 percent of the general population chose self-employment, and 14.3 percent of people with disabilities started businesses recently. Most of them have not lived their entire lives with their illness, but somewhere along the line they have been injured or received a diagnosis for something that has made their life different. More difficult. Something extra that they have had to learn to deal with along the way. And when you add owning and running a business life can become much more than just challenging. 

Just like not being a successful business owner out of the gate, managing a disability or chronic illness takes time to figure out and to get a grip on. And for some, that never happens. But for those who have the determination and the will power to accomplish what they truly want, these women business owners not only survive but thrive!

Today’s guest, Jessie Ace, is one of those that has it figured out. Listen in as she talks about the challenges and the accomplishments she has had throughout her years with multiple sclerosis.

Okay, um, so, okay, so I've kind of mastered this this thing because sometimes so having multiple sclerosis is really unpredictable. Sometimes you can wake up and feel like you’ve run three marathons in your sleep, and sometimes you can feel kind of okay, but it's never like, Oh, I feel amazing today. - Jessie Ace

Episode 57: Just because you have a Chronic Illness doesn’t mean you can’t be active with Lyn Lindbergh

Episode 57: Just because you have a Chronic Illness doesn’t mean you can’t be active with Lyn Lindbergh

May 14, 2020

Sometimes monsters are invisible, and
sometimes demons attack you from the inside.
Just because you cannot see the claws and the teeth
does not mean they aren’t ripping through me.
Pain does not need to be seen to be felt.

For someone with one of the “hidden” chronic illnesses, you certainly have heard at least a few times in your life “You don’t look like there’s anything wrong with you.” Or, “All you have to do is take this magic elixir and you be 100% well and feel like you did when you were in your 20s.” Am I right? So often those of us who have some sort of medical challenge run into people in the health and wellness field that sell programs, powders, solutions that are “guaranteed” to make you well again. They quote statistics and recommendations by well known sports stars or doctors in a field (usually ones that have some vested interest in what is being sold). They very well may believe totally in what they are selling, but when dealing with people who have medical issues, those tools and strategies may not work in the way they are supposed to.

According to today’s guest, Lyn Lindbergh, the owner of the health organization and book from Couch to Active, there is still hope for those who have the daily battle of pain.

You're not alone but it feels alone and how do you do all that? And really, we could only do what we can do today, right? We really only have each moment of each day. Your biggest work is kind of figuring out like, what kind of mental and emotional energy do you have in this moment to do what you can with the resources you have today? And then leaving the rest of that mental emotional energy if there's any left to what can I do to show compassion to myself? To not fight against my reality, not think of myself as a mistake or think of myself as a failure or think of myself as less than. 

Listen in to this fascinating chat on health, wellness, personal and business. Then see if there might be, just might be a light at the end of the tunnel.

Episode 56: Being Creative Now and in the Future with Ella Glasgow

Episode 56: Being Creative Now and in the Future with Ella Glasgow

April 30, 2020

"Decision is the spark that ignites action. Until a decision is made, nothing happens.... Decision is the courageous facing of issues, knowing that if they are not faced, problems will remain forever unanswered." Wilfred A. Peterson

Our lives our filled with decision making. I can picture myself sitting at the table and a boatload of decisions falling out of the air on top of my head. Talk about overwhelm. What am I going to do? There are personal decisions, business decisions, health and wellness. With almost every breath I take I must make some sort of decision.

Today’s guest Ella Glasgow is an overwhelm expert. Listen in on our conversation while we talk about what is involved in all this: 

No good decision can be made from fear. It is very hard for anyone to make conscious, non regrettable decisions while they are working from fear. There's nothing wrong with being afraid. Acknowledge it, we are all afraid of some things. But that being said,  you cannot operate from that place. I have to allow myself to go back to peace. Get myself into a calm state of mind, so that I can remove myself from the situation and look at it from above and see where the solutions are for myself and for my family.

Episode 55: Toxins and Other Nasty Stuff with Cheryl Meyer

Episode 55: Toxins and Other Nasty Stuff with Cheryl Meyer

April 16, 2020

According to the Cleveland Clinic “Environmental toxins are all around us. From the food we eat and water we drink to the products and energy we consume. Toxins have been found in beauty products, household cleaners, carpets, furniture, mattresses, house dust―and even in foods and products from natural sources.  Being surrounded by chemicals on a daily basis can have some harmful effects on your health. However, there are steps you can take to avoid undue toxins as well as make proper choices that can minimize your exposure to these toxins.”

They aren’t the only ones saying this. Our guest today, Cheryl Meyer is an award winning author, international best seller, health coach, speaker, local TV host and guest podcaster. She has spent many years of her life figuring out what toxins are bad, which ones are worse and how to deal with them in our everyday life. From someone who started out being sick with many different issues, to now, knowing how to deal with things so that she rarely finds herself feeling down, Cheryl knows the ins and outs of living a clean life and how to eliminate the bad. Listen in as we talk with Cheryl.

Episode 54: Inspiration, Smiles and Get out There and Do It Motivation with Dominick Domasky

Episode 54: Inspiration, Smiles and Get out There and Do It Motivation with Dominick Domasky

April 9, 2020

"There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality."

-- Anthony Robbins

Failure, persistence and success. At least one of those three words we like to hear, right? No one wants to have failure in their lives, and persistence denotes hard work. But success – everyone wants to have success in their lives. What we don’t realize though is that without the first two you are very unlikely to truly get to that third on the list. It takes time, it takes little successes, little failures, more successes (in other words, persistence) and eventually you will get to that big SUCCESS.

If you think that with anything you're doing, you're gonna be good enough the first time, whether it's writing books, playing basketball, speaking, podcasting, if you think you're going to be good enough the first time, you should quit that and go try something else. The reality is, you're gonna stink, you're going to get knocked down and because of that, you're going to be so much better and stronger.

Inspiration, motivation, and the knowledge that (according to Ringo Starr)

“Got to pay your dues
if you wanna sing the blues
And you know it don't come easy”

This is information that we all need to consider, think about and implement. Whether it’s in our personal or our business lives, we need to be able to take our time, pay our dues and eventually our worlds will get easier. Listen in to Nancy and Dominick Domasky’s conversation to get some fascinating ideas and suggestions on how to do this.

Episode 53: Leaders Lead with Adam Mutschler

Episode 53: Leaders Lead with Adam Mutschler

March 12, 2020

"You are the reason of your own good-luck and bad-luck; success and failure; happiness and pain. Your choices are responsible for your present. Don't blame someone else for your sufferings or failures." ― Sanjeev Himachali

According to today’s guest, Adam Mutschler, it is really important to have leadership and accountability – both of which lead to resilience; something that people with disabilities and chronic illness have in abundance. That’s number one thing that you need to have both as someone in the business world and someone with health issues. 

However, it is also important that you take responsibility for your own decisions. Not only do you need to be accountable but in order to be a good leader, you need to take responsibility for what you do, but to show that others have to be responsible and accountable for their own actions as well.

Episode 52: How to be a Successful Business with Marc Mawhinney

March 5, 2020

“A big business starts small.” -Richard Branson

Marc Mawhinny, coach, podcaster, and guru of the Facebook group, The Coaching Jungle, is our guest today. Our conversation starts out talking about what it takes to be a good start up business. Marc shares his thoughts on starting on a shoestring budget, being the chief cook and bottle washer, and then moving on to delegation when it becomes important to add in that part to the process.

Motivation seems to be another key word that we’ve been running into a lot lately here on Don’t Wait Til Pigs Fly. And Marc shares his thoughts on that as well. Take a listen as we chat with Marc Mawhinny here.
