"MONEY TALKS...ARE YOU LISTENING?" With SANDY MCDOUGALL

We’ve all heard the common saying, “Your money OR your life”.But over recent years, my work with women and money has given me new insight. That “OR” is a belief that stops us from living our best, most fulfilled and prosperous lives! So it’s high time we come to understand and embrace the more useful truth - Let’s make it all about “Our money AND our lives”.

The enormous power in that small word “AND” has the potential to heal the destructive energies of regret, shame,
blame, struggle, and denial. The new “AND Reality” is that your money and your life are integrally and energetically connected.

So, the more closely and honestly they communicate, and the more intimately they understand each other, the more they work hand in hand, the better and more joyously they can work together to support you and your life missions.

It’s not easy - at least not at first – but it IS that simple. Money work is soul work. And money talks. The question is:
Are you listening?

Sandy is a Holistic Life and Money Coach, Speaker, and Author who finally confronted the elephant in her living room and faced, head on, the disconnect and disempowerment in her financial life. Now she helps women find connection, peace, power, balance, and flow in their lives without leaving out the
crucial topic of money, so they can create it all - a strong financial foundation AND health, freedom, and fulfillment
throughout their lives.

Sandy is committed to breaking deep taboos around culture, family, gender, creativity, and money – taboos many of us have lived with all our lives - so we can all love our dreams, find our voice, and walk our path with peace, joy, and a deep sense of purpose.

"SOULFUL WORDS THAT SELL: SECRETS TO WRITING AND SPEAKING YOUR POWERFUL MESSAGE."

Do you ever wonder if the people reading and listening to your message really get what you do?
Do you ever worry if your message is good enough?
Are you tired of not really knowing how to write or speak powerful words that actually help you build your business and attract your best, most engaged clients?
Would you like to save hundreds on copywriters and learn how to write words that sell your offers?

Asking someone else to write your important copy is like asking someone else to play the piano at your recital.
It’s like giving someone else the job of delivering your speech.
These are jobs only you can do! And only you should want to do!

Laura invites you to learn:

~The biggest secret to writing words that resonate deeply with your prospective clients
~How to connect to your unlimited creative, intuitive source and use that connection to write and speak your messages
~How to get over the fear of sharing your unique, vulnerable story without feeling like you’re not good enough, it’s TMI, or worry about offending anyone

What if the story you’re still afraid to share is the exact thing someone needs to hear to change their life for the better? It’s time to be brave and share that story!

Laura Di Franco, MPT is the owner of Brave Healer Productions. She’s a published poet and author, inspirational speaker, holistic physical therapist and third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do with over two decades of experience in healing.

Praised as “our favorite class” by The Writer’s Center, her brave, intuitive writing and healing workshops are the reason she was born. She helps healers get their badass, authentic voice published in order to heal the world with their words. Her new book, Brave Healing; a Guide for Your Journey is due out June 1st! www.BraveHealer.com is where you can grab a free 30-minute call with her to learn how your story will heal the world.

STALKING YOUR DARK HEART THROUGH COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS With LISA MCCALL

Life challenges you to change and grow. Although our society likes to think it is all about “arriving”, the soul wisely knows that you are always letting go to “becoming” from one minute to the next. This takes awareness and courage and isn’t easy. What can hold you back are parts of your “selves” hidden in the shadows that struggle with your soul’s longings. They beg you to avoid letting go at all cost. Letting go feels like death and so better ignored unless the hand is forced.

But daring to courageously stalk your shadows, or Dark Heart, is like going on an archeological, soulful dig so you can unlayer the selves whose messages can bring you alive. Cultivating a relationship with those darker voices, as well as with death, helps to uncover the stories that have been protecting you and keeping you small so you can connect with your creative genius. If you engage in courageous conversations, you begin to trust listening with the ears of your heart to all the other voices of yourself speaking.

You don’t have to have the conversations all at once or all alone. You can have them as you go about your daily life. Learn how to stalk “the questions that have no right to go away” to live the “one life you can call your own.” It is not an easy choice, but ultimately one that allows your life to expand with creativity, light, and freedom.


Lisa Diane McCall is a Certified Life Coach trained in the technique of Voice Dialogue. She has a Master’s of Health Science in International Health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and has been the director of a study looking at HIV in people who inject drugs for 15 years. She is also author of the novel, “The Rhythm of the Soul: A Journey of Loss and Discovery” based on her two vision quests in the Sahara Desert. Her questing and artistic spirit have taken her far and wide, observing the nature of people – from the nomads of the Sahara Desert to people dealing with addictions in Baltimore City – as well as her own nature. She helps clients, and anyone she encounters, realize their creative genius while exploring their Dark Heart.

"SELF-PROMOTION: HOW TO DO IT WITH CONFIDENCE, GRACE AND EASE" With GINNY ROBERTSON

Self-promotion is a must do for successful entrepreneurs/business owners. However, depending on your background, it can be one of your biggest stumbling blocks. Maybe you grew up hearing that it's not polite to talk about yourself or to "brag." Or maybe you have opinions about "salespeople" and you don't want to be one of "them."

Now you're you in business for yourself where you must talk about yourself, what you offer and how good you are at offering it. It's not always an easy transition. Or maybe you were an excellent salesperson ...for someone else. Sales skills don't always transfer easily from selling someone else's dream. But when it's your own dream and the perceived rejection feels personal...it can stop you in your tracks. Couple all of that with not being sure what to say and how to say it when you do talk about yourself and it can sometimes feel overwhelming. Ginny Robertson will take you through a process that can help you identify what it is that you're offering and how to talk about it with more Confidence, Grace & Ease. And, you'll get to practice!
