This is a short episode to about joining the conversation around mental health in honor of #BellLetsTalk Day January 31, 2018. So many people either suffer in silence themselves or they know someone who is afraid to seek help for mental health issues. The more people that join the conversation, the less stigma there will be on individuals who are dealing with mental health issues.
If you need help, please look into resources in your area or if you are in need of immediate assistance dial 911. (US and Canada)

Lisa's mom was an incredibly strong woman and loving mother. She came from Germany by herself and went on to become a successful business woman in the US. Lisa learned a lot from her mom and drew inspiration from her to start her own business.
Lisa herself is an amazing woman, she is an organizing and productivity coach with her company Positively Productive Systems, LLC. Check her out on her website: https://positivelyproductive.com/
She is running a free program in February called Positively Grateful which sounds like it will be phenomenal. To sign up for her free Gratitude Series, go to:https://www.subscribepage.com/positively-grateful-series_Feb2018
I plan on having her back for a future episode about letting go and decluttering after losing a loved one so stay tuned to hear more from Lisa in the future.
A big thank you to you the listeners and a big thank you to Lisa for sharing to keep the memory alive...

Nancy is a super awesome woman who was lucky enough to have her mom around until she was 92 years old. Nancy tells us about what her mom was like and how her mom's wisdom is helping her live her best life.
I was introduced to Nancy by her son Alexander, who hosts a super cool podcast called The Podcaster's Life w/The Podcaster's Coach and you can check it out here: http://podcasterscoach.com/live-podcast/
I was actually a guest on his show so if you can't get enough of my voice, check it out. It was the first time I had ever done a live podcast which was a really cool experience: http://podcasterscoach.com/pearls-from-my-mom/
We also did a Micro Podcast Improv which Nancy references in this episode: https://www.spreaker.com/user/podcasterscoach/ep-43-boring
Last but not least, Alex is literally writing The Book on Podcasting which will publish soon and I have a couple of pages I have written for him on legacy in podcasting so check that out when it comes out!

In my conversations with people who have lost loved ones I have found that many of them have either gone to or are interested in seeing a psychic medium. Almost every single person I have interviewed so far has said they believe their mother visits them in one form or another, is it so crazy to think that they might use a living person to connect with us?
I have never been to a psychic medium, was curious about how it all worked, and thought I would find a psychic medium to see if they would have a chat with me to tell me all about it. Anne was nice enough to put herself out there and answer my questions. Originally I had planned to do a quick Q & A with her and play some other interviews with a couple of people who wanted to talk about their experiences with psychic mediums but I will release that in a follow up episode.
If you want to learn more about Anne, you can visit her facebook page
And if you want to meet her in person in Wakefield,QC-check out this event on January 13th
Tarot/Oracle Card Reading Event · Hosted by The Chrisalis
If you want to be a part of my follow up episode to share your experience with a psychic medium (positive, neutral or negative) please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If this episode wasn't your cup of tea, not to worry, I will be back next week with an interview with a sweet lady named Nancy telling me all about the pearls of wisdom she learned from her mom.

Cierra lost her mom, Amy, 6 years ago and for a while she wasn't able to talk about it. I am so happy she is now because she sounds like she was an incredible woman. Listen as Cierra recounts some of her favorite pearls of wisdom and stories from her late mom. Also, learn what Kentucky Fried Chicken is called in Quebec and what item is left off of the menu here (side note: there are actually 2, mashed potatoes are also not on the menu in Quebec- which is upsetting).
Cierra is passionate about empowering and inspiring college dropouts and has her own podcast on the subject, please check it out: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/the-college-dropout-podcast-4/the-college-dropout-podcast

My mom said it to me, her mom said it to her, I say it to my kids, and you have probabaly been told this at some point in your life.
If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. But does this principle still ring true in the internet-connected world in which we live today?
Curious about the origins of this phrase and what do a bunch of strangers I asked on facebook think about it? Listen to find out...
