By |2019-11-17T16:27:59+02:00November 12th, 2019|PODCAST|

 

I am so excited today. Let me tell you that today we have as our guest Dr. Lynyetta Willis, who is a psychologist, family empowerment coach, and founder and CEO of Inner Pathways Coaching and Consulting.

She helps frustrated families break unhelpful behavior and cross-generational cycles so they can move from stable misery and into peaceful harmony. Through her transformational coaching and engaging talks, her clients and audiences learn to strengthen their parenting, partnership, and personal growth practices so they can feel harmony in their hearts and homes.

Dr. Willis created her highly acclaimed Elemental Living Model for Families and Personal Leadership as well as the Spiritual PATH for Evolving Relationships Framework.

Apart from that she is a speaker, media contributor, and author, her multi-award-winning book, My Forgotten Self: A Story about a Girl, a Powerful Encounter, and a Universal Message, has received high acclaim from individuals such as Dr. Shefali Tsabary, author of The Conscious Parent and “Oprah’s Parenting Expert”; Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, author and spiritual leader of Agape International Truth
Center; and Michal Berg, President and CEO of Spirituality for Kids International, Inc.

Dr. Willis lives in Georgia with her husband and their two children.

I hope you will love this interview as much as I did. Dr. Willis is a sweet and empathetic person. Her energy and her wisdom are so appealing. Find out for yourself.

IN THIS EPISODE:

 

When I think of confidence I think of person’s ability to use their gifts and speak and live their truth even when they are faced with their fear-based stories they tell themselves or even like outside odds – of people that say that you can’t do this. I think that when someone feels really confident it’s like no matter how strong the wind blows they trust in their gifts and their abilities and their experiences and their core truth.

———————————

….And my husband he didn’t want to hurt my feelings so he didn’t talk about it much. And we were living in this sort of stable misery. We had a roof over our head, we were a cute couple, you know, we had food and a little bit of money to do things, but there was this deep sense of unfulfillment and we were working a ton so we didn’t spend that much time together and when we did we just mainly went to movies or went to watch TV. At that time in my life, I had enough confidence where I could stand in front of the crowd of 500 and talk. No problem. But I couldn’t stand in front of my husband and say I’m not happy or I’m scared.

——————————–

Then, I had to make space for the idea that the stable misery stories maybe weren’t true. Just make space for the idea. Because it’s easy to say – oh, just you know, believe in yourself and don’t tell yourself bad things and it’ll all be better. Well, that’s really easy and that’s really pretty and it looks great on a postcard, but in reality, it’s really hard to do that when you’ve been thinking things for a long time.

——————————–

The thing about it is – a lot of times we would prefer to be in situations that are familiar than situations that feel good or that are fulfilling. Familiar trumps fulfilling when we lack awareness. So, I think that is beautiful and perfect example of how can it play itself out even though I am sure the fights didn’t feel good to you, it was familiar. Because when you weren’t fighting it was like – oh, no, something is going on, something is gonna happen.

By |2019-11-10T09:05:10+02:00November 10th, 2019|PODCAST|

 

Did you listen to the first part of the interview with Baska Ilic last week?

If not, go check it out because this is the second part of the interview and you will miss a whole lot if you skip part one.

As I mentioned last week, Baska is a marketing consultant and content marketing manager. She worked for NGOs, startups, solopreneurs and small to medium-sized businesses. She is the go-to expert when it comes to digital marketing including social media marketing, PPC, newsletters, SEO and of course her favorite content marketing. You can find her expert articles on many Slovak and international sites such as Lifehack or Lifehacker. In the first part of our conversation, we talked about her travels to the USA, where we actually met and India where she traveled the following year.

Today, you will hear her talking about Serbia, where she met her husband and about her passion for women’s rights. So, go check out Part 1 and if you’ve already listened to that one, nothing stops you from listening to the second part of the conversation with Baska right now.

IN THIS EPISODE:

 

There I met love of my life. We met there and then we got married one year later. 

———————————

It was my first and so far the last hitchhiking in my life. It was two or three days we were on the road and it was so awesome. We almost died at some point. We wanted to go to this place called …… geologically somehow special place and it looks so beautiful and we couldn’t get there but we somehow got to town close by and we just knew that over the mountain, it’s gonna be just 8 kilometers and we are there. And we were like: oh my god, 8 kilometers it’s nothing. So, we started to walk and then we were sleeping in the forest just under the stars because we didn’t have any tent. And we were so excited, like oh my god, this is the best trip ever. And then, we go to the place and we realized that we are on some canyon. We were above everyone. We were looking from above on all the tourists and we were trying to figure out how, the hell, we are gonna get down.

——————————–

Then, I was hitchhiking by myself to the town. I was a little scared but it was funny because I noticed the difference, you know, when you are in  a couple, like boy and a girl, it takes longer to get the ride. Even in Balkans, which is like – the best countries for hitchhiking from what I heard. But when I was alone, I was literally like 30 seconds on the road. I got a truck, then I got a car, then I got another car. In no time. 

——————————–

I felt it before elections. I did interview with her when she was still a candidate and she had just a few % and there were like comments even from women – writing their stuff like – oh my god, female president, everyone’s gonna make fun of us, you know and I was like: Are you kidding me? So many countries have female leaders and they are freaking awesome. And, who, in the 21st century is gonna laugh at us that we have a female president? If anything, this is something to be admired.

Episode 13: Baska Ilic ON catcalling in India, hitchhiking in Serbia and women’s rights – Part 1

By |2019-10-22T13:51:37+02:00October 22nd, 2019|PODCAST|

 

Today I want to introduce to you a dear friend of mine Baska Ilic. Baska is a marketing consultant and content marketing manager. She worked for NGOs, startups, solopreneurs and small to medium-sized businesses. She is the go-to expert when it comes to digital marketing including social media marketing, PPC, newsletters, SEO and of course her favorite content marketing. You can find her expert articles on many Slovak and international sites such as Lifehack or Lifehacker.

But you can find this kind of information about her online. So, today, I want to talk to her more personally. About her travels to the USA, India, Serbia, about her marriage and about her passion for women’s rights. I believe you will enjoy this personal conversation.

However, I do apologize for the quality of the sound on my side. I hope it won’t bother you too much and won’t ruin your joy from the interview.

Now, let’s get right into the conversation with Baska.

IN THIS EPISODE:

 

Everything was tough there. It already actually started back in Slovakia because I just decided I wanna go and because of that I kind of broke up with my boyfriend who didn’t like the idea that I’m gonna leave him for 4 months and I believe it was one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. So, it paid off. And I’m not even sure if I had enough cash to buy a flight ticket and pay for all the paperwork and everything. But, somehow, I got it going and things happened and I finally arrived to the United States and it started to be tough from the very very beginning. I still remember when we were at the airport and waiting for our drivers who were not about to appear anytime soon and it was middle of the night and then we got to our place which was completely locked and nobody was waiting for us there so we kind of open the window and got in. It was kind of crazy.

———————————

I was at the airport in Budapest, in Hungary. My parents’ car broke there, literally right in front of the airport. It was my birthday by the way and I was supposed to fly with my friend who has a birthday in the same day I do so we were planning – we are gonna celebrate in the sky, we are gonna drink wine and look forward to our adventures in India because we’ve read so much about India. It was my dream. I didn’t mind, you know, all the mess and everything because I was actually excited about everything there. Well, she got sick and she couldn’t get her vaccines. So, had to take another flight and I was flying for the first time in my life all alone and it was not easy.

——————————–

The toughest moment and toughest decision making happened in Dharamshala, in the Himalayas, the place where Dalai Lama lives. I was there with my friends and one of them tends to get sick often from anything. She has somehow this aura around her – that’s the girl who got sick when we were starting the journey. Also, the camel fell on her so she had such bad luck back then when we were there…..Because she got already sick in Delhi, we didn’t make it to Manali and we decided to go straight to Dharamshala. So, we got there and she was already fine….the next day I woke up in the night because she fell in the bathroom. I found her like laying down…

——————————–

We decided that we are going to have a picnic there. We are going to go there, to the park. We are gonna sit down, we are gonna read our book about India, we are gonna plan our travels, we are gonna eat bananas. We were so excited about this idea. The park was literally close by. So, we went to the park and as we were walking, we were noticing there just men in the park. From little boys to adults – adult men. We were walking there and I’m wondering….everyone is looking at us but we were already used to that everyone is staring at us so whatever…and then I was like -there is a bunch of dogs behind us – I think they are following us….and suddenly one jumped on my back… I started to scream because it was a shock that suddenly I have a dog on my back…so now, even those few guys or boys who didn’t stare at us started to stare at us… suddenly we have 30 men around us…it was so absurd…

Episode 12: Jess Tomlinson ON visibility, self-expression and holding on to expectations

By |2019-10-02T08:00:44+02:00October 1st, 2019|PODCAST|

 

In today’s interview, I would like to introduce a very special guest. Jess Tomlinson. I am so honored that she accepted the invitation to come for an interview. She is a gorgeous and sweet person and we can learn a lot from her so make sure to stick around till the end of the interview.

Jess Tomlinson is a visibility, leadership and business coach and intuitive guide for women entrepreneurs, creatives and influencers who have learned all the systems and strategies, yet are feeling disconnected from themselves and want to feel like a kid on Christmas morning again in business and life! With over 10 years leading branding and marketing for award-winning media and travel companies, she brings her skills plus intuition to support her clients in releasing how they think they “should” operate in business and instead become the truest embodiment of themselves as evolving Visible Leaders – Radiantpreneurs.

Jess has been featured for her expert advice on multiple media interviews including NPR alongside renowned spiritual teacher Byron Katie and on live TV. She was also named one of Las Vegas’ top 5 Empowered Women Entrepreneurs and has produced 3 TEDxWomen events.

She lives with her sexy videographer Soul Partner, Ben, in Las Vegas where they spend their time hiking, sipping vino (Jess) and whiskey (Ben), playing cribbage and planning their next travel adventure.

 

IN THIS EPISODE:

My specialty is leadership and visibility and what that means is really be able to fully express all sides of ourselves as a leader, as a visionary in our businesses so that we can not only be visible and really magnetize who we are meant to serve but more so what I care about is how you feel each and every day, when you get up are you worried about what people are gonna think about you? Are you hiding behind your computer instead of doing that Facebook live or sharing about your amazing story cause you are afraid of xyz…

———————————

What I really support women leaders and entrepreneurs in doing is setting themselves free from needing to be a certain way so that no matter how they’re feeling no matter what they are going through, no matter the day they can really step into their authentic self-expression. I teach these three different archetypes which I call feminine leadership archetypes. There are so many different parts of ourselves but I find it’s really helpful to categorize these 3 parts so that we can begin to own them and to not deny them. The three feminine leadership archetypes are the Playful Child, the Radiant Rebel, and the Sexy Feminine.

——————————–

You have to release how you think you should be showing up, the kind of offering that you think you should be doing, the strategy….my clients usually have taken lots of courses, they’re very smart, learned lots of information and yet all of this information is bogging them down so they need to release what is not serving them and really come home, which is the reveal – the phase two – is reveal – what are the parts of you that you are not sharing, how can you set yourself free and embrace and heal and love those parts of yourself?

——————————–

The caterpillar effect is this whole concept that like a caterpillar who has to first really surrender to the process of transformation. Can you imagine that if the caterpillar didn’t surrender to this process of recreating from a caterpillar into a butterfly and it stayed so attached to wanting to be a caterpillar it would never turn in to this beautiful creature that it’s meant to be? And so that is an analogy for us as leaders as women who wanna make a difference. If we hold on to these expectations who we think we are and often times they’re really high expectations of ourselves that don’t serve us to continue to make the stakes and to try things and we hold such high standards that we create a non-winning game for ourselves and life becomes really hard and really not fun and we’re constantly beating ourselves up if we don’t release these expectations.

Episode 11: Martina Sevcikova ON career change, wedding and confidence

By |2019-09-24T17:57:45+02:00September 24th, 2019|PODCAST|

 

I promised that I will bring you awesome guests on this podcast – strong women that build their confidence. So, today is the day and the first guest is here with us.

So, let me tell you. Today’s guest is incredible. She is a friend of mine for many many years and she is a sweet person who you will love. Her name is Martina Sevcikova, and I call her Matka. She is an incredibly strong woman who recently changed her job from a sure-fire corporate career where she belonged among the best to a part-time job in a small company to have some free time to follow her dreams and acquire the lifestyle she wants to have.

I believe it requires a huge amount of confidence to make such a decision so I want to talk to her about it – whether it was a difficult decision for her and whether she struggled with confidence. So let’s get into it.

 

IN THIS EPISODE:

 

It was a feeling I had for a longer period of time that I need a change and then if you remember last year in August I was in Bratislava with you and we agreed that you show me how you do coaching and we had this talk and that was the moment that I realized that I had to do something to change my situation, to achieve what I want and I realized that my current job is not that thing that I want in the future. It helped me.

————————————

One thing was more practical – I had to wake up every day pretty early, I had to commute and this commuting was pretty long, it took a lot of time and of course, a lot of energy. Then, I spent quite a lot of hours at work and when I came back I was tired and not able to do other things which I wanted to do, so this was one thing – the time. Then, other things were that of course that job was demanding. It was sometimes pretty stressful and there were also other reasons… I knew I want to achieve something different in my future.

———————————

Yes, of course, I was scared… I had to think a lot about it. I did several SWOT analyses…It’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis. Then I did an analysis of pros and cons and really I thought a lot about it and of course I thought about how to do it because this job opportunity came a bit later but then when this opportunity came I decided that OK, now it’s the right time to do it.

——————————–

I would recommend to think it through, to set a target and to plan the way how to achieve it. To plan what tools and means and everything need to be used to achieve the target and of course, it’s best to have somebody who supports you in achieving your goal.
