International Women’s Day!
At Lauri’s Lemonade Stand we Celebrate Women Every Day!
As I mentioned last week, I wanted to share with you the brave women who were guests this past year on my podcast. Last week, we celebrated the first ten and this week we celebrate episodes 11-20! There is a little blurb about each one below and the link to their individual podcast should you want to learn more. Have fun as I did learning from these amazing, incredible women and then tune in next week for episodes 21-30. Thank you for being a part of this movement to support and uplift other women!
Ed Mackey – Ok, so I said women and then episode #011 is actually a man! My husband in fact. If you go to my website and sign up for my email list you get what I have lovingly dubbed “Eddy’s 60 Days of Sunshine” which is a download for you to use as a tool to help someone you know who is going through a hard time, mild depression, or general sadness. It is a way to use a network of family and friends and peers to support someone in their time of need. Listen to this episode to learn the why and how I came up with this idea in supporting my husband when I didn’t know what else to do.
Irene Thomas – This is just a fun and uplifting episode #012 that teaches us how to Geocache! Have you tried geocaching yet? It is something you can do by yourself or with friends…on a trip across the world or the country or even in your own backyard. Try it, you’ll like it!
Lauri Mackey – This is your 3-Step Guide to accomplishing your next goal with incredible passion! I share with you my journey to finishing high school after age 40 and the power that ignited in myself to do and be more…I felt like Wonder Woman and that I could do anything! It is part of the reason I started this podcast to help women over 40 in accomplishing whatever their little hearts desire. Listen, then use the tools to accomplish your next goal!
Rhonda Waidmann – The respect you’ll find for Rhonda Waidmann lies at the other end of this podcast interview. Sometimes you think you know someone from the outside looking in, but then you delve deeper and find a hero. Heroes are found in everyday life and in everyday circumstances. Rhonda has endured much, but has also fought for much and is still fighting to help others to this day. Enjoy this down to earth interview and get inspired to create positive change with a smile in your neck of the woods!
Rachel Call – Rachel Call cannot be shocked by anything she hears which means she is the least judgmental person I know. She would never admit it, but she is truly a gift to the hearts and spirits of those she touches in their lives. Embrace this powerful, passionate podcast and reach out to her if you would like to have her touch your life as she as touched mine. Don’t forget to check out the two books she recommends in Fearless Living by Rhonda Britten and Happiness is a Choice by Barry Neil Kaufman.

Brenda Davis, RD – went vegan when vegan wasn’t popular in society or in her field of practice.

Become part of the grass roots efforts to be kind to yourself, others, and animals in this inspiring episode!

More than that, and before that, she was simply an inspiration for me in following my journey of a Whole Food, Plant-Based nutrition lifestyle. in this episode we get down and dirty about our food practice, religious practice and our belief in God. Hold on tight as we, as two women, connect, consult, and embrace this way of life. Jane’s journey is amazing and brave, enjoy this amazing episode!
