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:
I enjoy meeting people who love storytelling as much as I do. Even more so if they’re the kind who are willing to take over my podcast, put me on the hot seat, and let me share my own inside stories!!

This was such a fun episode to do, so I invite you to listen in as Adera asks me some really interesting questions and we talk about:
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:
For the first time, I’m digging into human design. It’s a specific way to learn more about your personality, emotions, and energy centers, and today on the show, I’ve invited someone who can help me – and YOU! – understand human design better and how it can help different areas of our lives.

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

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.

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!

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. And while I constantly talk about it as a business-building strategy, many are still skeptical and even nervous about using public speaking to scale their businesses.
I invite you to listen in today as I share with you:
It goes without saying that speaking is one of the best...
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:
