Jul 26: How Tiny Changes Can Recreate Your Life with Sam Bennett. Dump Your Inner Critic with Mark Coleman

Live a Better, More Fulfilling Life Based on Who You Really Are & Finally Get What You Really Want

Podcast Sam Bennett with How Little Changes Can Make A Big Difference. Mark Coleman with How Mindfulness Can Free You From Your Inner Critic

Our guest experts share timeless advice to help move you towards a better, more authentic life, & accomplish things that are important to you. *

Sam Bennett found herself distressed and depressed 20-some years ago. She’d lost her mojo, and none of the tools or advice shared by well-meaning friends helped her find it – that is until she cherry-picked the best ideas and adapted them to suit her own dreams.

Sam shares 66 of her tools in Start Right Where You Are: How Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference for Overwhelmed Procrastinators, Frustrated Overachievers, and Recovering Perfectionists.

What does your inner critic sound like? What does it say to you? How does it make you feel? And most importantly, how do you allow it to control your life and define who you are?

Mark Coleman offers great practical advice, to help stop the negative chatter that’s holding you back, in Make Peace with Your Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free You from Your Inner Critic.

Feb 08: From Showing Off to Showing Up with Nancy Regan

The perfect job, perfect marriage, perfect kids … she was deliriously happy. But was she?

Podcast Nancy Regan From Showing Off to Showing Up

In what seemed from the outside to be a great life, Nancy Regan reached a point where she knew she was living a lie and had to make changes. Big ones. One of the hardest was to let go of her persistent need for perfection, from herself and others.

In her new book — part memoir, part self-empowerment guide — Nancy shares her journey from successful TV host to living a more authentic and fearless life.

And how she brings herself back to the present when she finds herself retreating into old patterns.
