Laughter Heals

Laughter heals wounds. Especially, emotional wounds. Some of the deepest wounds stem from the feeling that you are an outsider, a person who does not belong.

Today’s guest, Hal Eisen, is a charming, handsome, loving, funny human being. He is a gift for making people laugh and feel really good. It’s a double edged gift.

You laugh at his wicked sense of humor; and you laugh at his laugh. Yes, Hal has a contagious laugh.

He is an actor and a designer. He tells us in the podcast that his theatre friends have asked him not to let them know when he is in the audience of a play they are in.

Why? Because, if it is a comedy, and they don’t hear Hal’s laugh, they will be disappointed. If it is a drama, and they hear his laugh, they will be disappointed. That’s what you call a lose, lose situation.

You will be moved by the journey Hall takes you on in this interview. You’ll discover how and why laughter became his powerful survival tool.

I’ll guess that most of us have at some time in our lives felt unwanted, cast aside, not knowing where we belong. That is scary and painful. The feeling of being an outsider has triggered many suicides.

Hal is no stranger to the outsider’s pain.  You’ll love the way he used laughter to heal his wounds.

You’ll be inspired by the way Hal gradually changed his story and his life. He was considered the ugly duckling in high school. He was humiliated and abused.

That phase of his life was the before portrait that contrasts strongly with the after portrait of a good looking, creative, sharp man about town.

You will also learn about the empowering “it get’s better” campaign that helps people reclaim their dignity and saves lives.

It’s interesting that Hal is passionate about his design work with his partner, Andrew, in the Bottecchia Artistic Group. They specialize in residential and commercial makeovers. Sounds like writing a new story over and over again.

This is the kind of story we all need to hear. We are enriched by the feelings it awakens in us. We are uplifted by the gift of laughter that heals wounds.

And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.” – Spoken by Polonius in William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” – Act I – Scene 3

Own Your Power

A WOMAN CLAIMS HER LIFE

What does it mean to own your power? This podcast will answer that question and inspire you to live the life you deserve and not settle for anything less.

Today’s guest is Edna Keep, an ordinary woman who accomplished extraordinary things by by having the courage to live her dream.

Edna’s dream was to stop struggling as a single mom living in subsidized housing. She set her mind to it, and she did it.

Next, she wanted to create wealth for her and her family. She did it.

Today, she continues to expand her wealth and coaches others to live independent lives of abundance.

Anyone can accomplish what Edna Keep has accomplished – if they are willing to step into and through their fears.

Edna has created wealth through real estate investing. That takes guts. The first time you face a six figure buying decision, fear will rear its ugly head.

Edna conquered that fear. Even before she made her first real estate purchase, she chose to invest in Robert Kiyosaki’s intense real estate investment training. The cost? Almost $40,000.

High ticket courses like that one trigger a crippling fear of loss in many people, and they run for cover. Edna walked right into the face of that fear and won.

You will learn the mindset that leads to enormous wealth when you listen to Edna. You will gain the confidence that you can be, do, or have anything you want.

Plus, you will learn how to create your fortune using other people’s money.

Edna’s passion, courage, and insights will give you the exact formula to change your story and change your life.

Choice Is Power

How can you step into leadership? First, you must learn to lead yourself; only then, can you lead others.

The most effective leaders do not lead by coercion or force. They lead by example; they inspire people to follow them.

Willard Barth is a strong effective leader. He developed his leadership in the front lines of life and business.

He fought personal demons and conquered them. He endured hardship that could have broken him and driven him to play the victim. He became a warrior sage instead.

Warrior sage is not an easily earned title. It isn’t won in the classroom. It’s one of the spoils of war on the battlefield of personal growth.

It is won by having the courage to choose one hundred percent responsibility. When you do that, you own your strengths and your weaknesses, your victories and defeats.

This interview with Willard Barth is for you if you want to learn valuable lessons about leadership, growth, and transformation.

Join us. I promise you enrichment and entertainment.
