Walking the Camino de Santiago with Lisa Corrado EP: 140

podcast May 24, 2023

The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James, is a famous pilgrimage route in Europe that leads to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. Pilgrims embark on the Camino for various reasons, such as seeking spiritual growth, self-discovery, or simply enjoying the adventure and camaraderie of the journey.

My friend and our guest today on the podcast, Lisa Corrado, is currently on her Camino de Santiago journey. I caught up with her as she was taking a few days off from her walk, and learned more about what this pilgrimage means to her, and what it has done for her.

I invite you to join me and Lisa today as she shares with me:

  • Why she felt compelled to go on the Camino de Santiago
  • The best and worst days of her journey so far
  • What it has been like meeting new people, discovering their stories, and finding out the common thread that goes through everybody’s stories

Raising Your Ambition with April Adams Pertuis EP: 138

podcast May 10, 2023

If we look at the person we used to be and who we are now, I’d say one of the things that would be different is our ambition – or level of ambition. For a lot of us, it’s more likely that our ambitions change or even diminish over the years, and this could be due to a number of reasons.

But what does ambition really mean? Why are so many people conflicted about whether being ambitious is a good or bad thing? Should we have more ambitions in life, or less? In a recent event I attended hosted by bestselling author and high performance coach Brendon Burchard, one of my biggest takeaways was the need for us to raise our ambitions. 

Today on the show, I talk more about ambition, and invite you to join me as I share with you:

  • The different times in my life as a college graduate and new wife when ambition coupled with sheer determination served me well
  • How ambition showed up again for me years later, even after experiencing disappointments and failures
  • Why raising...

3 Levels of Storytelling EP: 136

podcast Apr 26, 2023

I live and breathe storytelling. This is because in all my years as a journalist and now as your chief LIGHTbeamer inside the Community, I have not seen anything quite as powerful as storytelling when it comes to connecting people, growing businesses, and inspiring an audience.

But as much as storytelling has become a real strategy these days, not everyone knows what to do with it. And a huge part of this is not knowing and understanding that storytelling is a journey – one that involves different stages.

So join me today as I share with you:

  • The three levels of storytelling and why it’s important to know them
  • An assessment exercise to help you determine where you are on your storytelling journey
  • My own experiences as I went through each level, plus some tips on what you can do as you work your way through the different stages

Storytelling is like a muscle; it gains strength when it is exercised. So go ahead and strengthen your storytelling skills by practicing every...

The Art of Storytelling Through the Lens of a Self-Portrait with Lisa Haukom of Goldenbrand.co EP: 135

podcast Apr 19, 2023

People share their stories in different ways. Some do it on the big stage, others do it through podcasts (like this one!), and still others do it through books. And then there are those who do it through the lens of a camera and also help others share their stories through photography.

podcast Apr 12, 2023

One of the things I get excited about when I join speaking events is meeting new people. And our guest today on the podcast is one of those women I recently shared the stage with and got to know at a women’s conference. Her story and what she does moved me – so much so that I had to get her on the show to talk about her mission.

Susie Vybiral is a L’Oreal Paris Woman of Worth 2022 National Honoree, recognized for her selfless dedication to giving abused children a fresh start. She also aims to break the cycle of abuse, and how she does it is nothing short of amazing.

Navigating Life's Transitions with Becky Burroughs EP: 133

podcast Apr 05, 2023

One of the biggest joys of my job is seeing women cross the finish line to their big, hairy, scary goals… and using their story as a centrifugal force to help them along the way!

Becky Burroughs first became an author when she wrote a chapter in our collaborative book last year called Elevate Your Voice.

This week, her first solo endeavor as a published author comes to fruition with her book, Come Back Home to You.

I’m so excited to have Becky again on the podcast, and I invite you to join us today as we talk about:

  • How writing a chapter for the collaborative book Elevate Your Voice moved her to write her own book
  • What inspired what she wrote about in the book, and why resiliency is at the core of Come Back Home to You
  • The different transition points we encounter in our lives that either break us down or help us see who we really are and where our strengths lie
  • What makes sharing her story and the stories of other women completely worth the time it...

podcast Mar 29, 2023

Entrepreneurs like you and me are constantly looking for ways to grow our business. We look at different strategies we can implement to attract our ideal clients and bring in more revenue. But something that’s often overlooked is speaking your way to gain new customers for your business.

Speaking has a domino effect that can positively impact your business. It is something that has really allowed me to grow LIGHTbeamers.

  • The different ways speaking can grow your business
  • How to get started on your speaking journey
  • My program for anyone who wants to use speaking as a way to gain visibility, expand their influence, and bring in new revenue

Storytelling Q&A EP: 131

podcast Mar 22, 2023

On World Storytelling Day, I went live on Facebook to talk about – what else? Storytelling, of course! I’ve mentioned time and again how sharing our stories has been an essential part of communicating with one another and, more importantly, connecting with each other. It has always been an important part of community and humanity, and even more so today.

But if you’re new to storytelling, you might have hesitations and questions you want answered before you begin your journey. And because I got great Qs when I went live, I’m sharing them with you today, hoping you get the encouragement you need to take that first step towards becoming a storyteller.

Here are some of the questions I answer and the things I talk about:

  • What’s the first thing you need to remember about storytelling?
  • What key questions do I need to ask my audience so I can help them and also improve my storytelling skills?

  • How do I...
