International Women’s Day Part 3 of 4!

International Women’s Day Part 3 of 4!
At Lauri’s Lemonade Stand we Celebrate Women Every Day!

The last two weeks have been so fun and we are halfway there!  Celebrating the women of this first year of my podcast has been great for me.  It is like a trip down memory lane as I review each of them in turn.  Check out the little blurbs below, pick your poison and then enjoy the help that you will receive from these amazing women!  Sending love and support out to you all!

Kelly Long – No idea that Kelly Long would be so down to earth and full of energy and just plain fun until she agreed to be on this podcast.  Not only did she have my vote in the election for County Supervisor, but she had my vote on how action leads to change.  Learn more about this fun-loving, action-moving, full of persistence and grit personality and lay claim to some of it yourself by enjoying this episode!

Sharon McRae – Sharon McRae will steal your heart and then give it back to you significantly healthier!  She is available for coaching all across the United States and abroad.  She is fun, full of life and abounding in tips to change your diet that will have you leaving the top killers of disease in the dust.  Helpful hint?  Check out her recipes on her website:  eatwell-staywell.com!

Ashlee Birk – Ashlee Birk had every reason to lay over and play dead after learning her husband had been shot and killed.  Her world was shattered in a moment, but through these amazing trials she has learned to create new moments to stand for what she believes in.  Through much prompting she then decided that others need to hear her story so that she can help others to stand as well.  This is a true story of taking a seriously sucking lemons moment and finding the joy of how to make sweet lemonade.

Stephenie Zamora – Fun! Fun! Fun!  Yes, that is how I would describe my interview with Stephenie.  Not only were we kindred spirits and found ourselves speaking more with our hands and facial expressions (wish you could have seen that!), but we just had a blast recording this interview.  You will fall in love with Stephenie’s enthusiasm, but you will follow her through hell if she asked you to because like all of us, she has lived through some deep dark trauma that has shaken her to her core and had her building roots to stand the test of life.  Listen to it, learn about it, apply the lessons in your own life where necessary.

Whitney Johnson –  Disrupt Yourself!  Whitney is a wealth of information packed into a caring soul.  She is just on a mission to help others become their best selves.  You will definitely want to grab a pen and paper before sitting down to this episode as there are valuable nuggets throughout.  This episode will give you insights and tools you can use immediately to start disrupting your life and dreaming big!  For more of Whitney, check her out on Amazon, iTunes, and her website:  whitneyjohnson.com.  Happy disrupting!

Wally Amos – Famous Amos Cookies founder, Wally Amos turned 80 years old this year!  Why did I allow a guy on the show?  Cause it’s Wally Amos!  This awesome man is a positivity icon that I look up to with deep respect.  He’s got humor, he’s got a positive attitude and he believes that the only thing that can get in our way is ourselves.  He also believes that we are the only ones that get in the way of our own success.  Have a listen and enjoy this lovely episode!

Laurie Blackwell –  Journaling is not only a passion of Laurie’s, but after this interview I realized it was also a passion of mine!  (Maybe it’s something in the name Lauri…:)  Realizing that I already had more of a habit in journaling than I ever knew, Laurie makes it easy to make this a life-long habit or just do it for FUN by taking one of her online courses.  She offers 100 FREE journal prompts on her website and you won’t want to wait to visit with her because she is simply a pleasure and delight.  Enjoy this journaling journey with Laurie Blackwell!

Jill Hamilton – Petal Power!  Jill is a women’s advocate for cycling and has taken her passion within the industry to entrepreneurship in her company, Petal Power.  It is a plant-based, all natural Joy Ride System that was created for women by a woman.  I’ve tried it out, loved it, won’t use anything else on my hoo-hoo, girly-bits, cooch, petals, tweeny…you get the idea when riding my bicycle or running.  Get 10% off your first purchase with the code within the podcast.  Enjoy this amazing visionary!

Hilary Hendershott – Profit Boss Radio is my new go-to for financial wisdom specifically geared towards women.  This episode is chock full of amazing information, but it also has a “sucking lemons” moment (more like years) for Hilary that makes her not only human, but a kick ass financial planner for those of us that need to change our money mindset and get out of our own way when it comes to our finances.  Listen, be a sponge, take lots of notes, enjoy this episode!

Cindy Joseph – BOOM!  Cindy was most definitely a kindred spirit.  We had similar beliefs, goals and I am so pleased she has coined this change in the universe to be called The Pro-Age Movement.  To not just embrace our beautiful age, but to CELEBRATE it!  I am a huge fan of her BOOM! by Cindy Joseph products and once you hear her story you will be too.  Enjoy this feel-good episode!
