    Pam Grout small

    Pam Grout is a hopeless romantic who still believes the world is a beautiful place, that people are noble and that anything is possible. For a living (and she always wonders why people think that’s such an important question), she writes books and articles for such magazines as People, Men’s Journal, CNN Travel and Huffington Post. She also enjoys sharing stories with her daughter, but that’s more about making a life than a living. She’s keenly aware there’s a huge difference.

    In making a life, she has traveled to all the world’s continents, learned 59 ways to make a fort out of sofa cushions, perfected a mean tennis forehand and volunteered at a women’s prison and a free health clinic.

  • New Year, New Tea Habits

    Hot Tea MonthToday’s post was provided by Alan & Marlys Arnold of Adventures with Tea. The Arnolds are our guests on tomorrow’s episode of Power Up Living, and in honor of Hot Tea Month, we’re talking tea! 

    Tune in at Noon ET – you’ll really enjoy all the creative ideas they share for incorporating tea into recipes, too! Here’s a link to learn more: http://kellygalea.com/event/new-year-new-adventures-with-tea/

    By Alan & Marlys Arnold

     

    Tips for National Hot Tea Month

    January is Hot Tea Month, and this couple has suggestions for how to celebrate the world’s second most-consumed beverage. Alan and Marlys Arnold believe tea doesn’t have to be boring and are the authors of a tea-based recipe collection called “Cooking with Tea: Basics,” featuring their own brand of Adventures with Tea flavors. So in the spirit of adventure, they offer these tips:

    1. Try a new type of tea. There are many variations beyond traditional black or green tea, including caffeine-free herbal blends (tisanes) or rooibos from South Africa.

    2. Buy loose tea instead of bags. Loose tea creates a bolder, fuller flavor because it doesn’t constrict the leaves like bags do.

    3. Learn how to brew the best tea. It’s not hard, but there are variations in time, temperature, and brewing equipment that can make a big difference in the quality of tea.

    4. Understand how to store tea. Use opaque food-safe containers with a sealed lid to avoid exposure to light, heat, moisture, and air. (No glass containers!)

    5. Experiment with tea in other drinks, such as lattes, cider, or cocoa. Tea can also be used as an ingredient in recipes from desserts to main dishes.

    6. Host a tea tasting with friends. Try several different flavors and compare notes.

    7. Put brewed tea leaves to good use. Sprinkle them on plants or add to a compost pile.

     

    “Most people have heard that drinking tea (particularly green tea) is good for you,” Alan Arnold said. “But they don’t do it because they have memories of less-than-pleasant tea experiences. Once they begin to explore all of the options out there, they can find what works for them,” he said.

     

    About Adventures with Tea:

    Alan and Marlys Arnold teach about the history, health benefits, and culinary possibilities of tea at in- home and other private events, with flavors sampled from the Adventures with Tea line. They are the authors of the “Cooking with Tea: Basics” recipe collection and also have recipes and cooking videos on their website at www.AdventureswithTea.com.

    • How the problems we face today — shallow, fragmented attention, distraction, and “attention deficit” — may be remedied.
    • 9 new ways of perceiving and which of those skills will best help you as a creative in business.
    • How to remain stable in these intense times.

  • Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration [Podcast #014]

    Frequencywith Penney Peirce 6/19/13

    Make a tiny shift in your awareness and the world you see can change—in less than a second the solid physical world can become a shimmering, resonating world of energy. You realize that everything is vibrating! When you pay closer attention, you notice you can feel slow, sluggish vibrations and fast, harmonious vibrations. Then you realize there is information encoded in the vibrations you sense. And—yes!—this could be quite useful…

    The truth is, we make this shift to the energy world thousands of times a day without realizing it—to obtain information about what decisions to make and how to act. Imagine how smooth and easy life might become if we could make that shift into a conscious, intentional skill and be able to translate “vibrational information” immediately into trusted guidance? 

    Author Penney Peirce, an internationally recognized expert on intuition and perception, guides you into the new “energy reality” that’s emerging as we speak, and gives you a step-by-step roadmap to a positive state of awareness based on “frequency principles”—methods derived from the way energy actually functions—with tips to achieve a new kind of effortless success. 

    On this episode, we discuss:

    • “Frequency” and “personal vibration” as it relates to you and your creative business
    • How we can become more aware of our own energy and other people’s energy, and free ourselves from negative vibrations
    • How sensitivity and empathy differ from intuition 
    • How to use “frequency principles” to solve problems
    • How we create or “manifest” things in our lives — and advice for those who may be caught in financial difficulties right now

  • Operating on All Cylinders: Leadership From the Inside Out [Podcast #008]

    Most people think that leadership is about visioning, making things happen, inspiring people, creating strategy, leading the way, and even all about business. It is.  To a point.  AND what’s even more important, submersed and influencing the effectiveness of all of these “acts”, is the energy and presence you bring to your life on a daily basis. Your energy, presence and self-care is like food coloring in water – you can’t separate it out. If your energy and self-care are not aligned, your presence and actions are likely missing power. If you’re not paying attention to your own self-care and directed energy, you’re leaving leadership, joy, connection, and influence “currency” on the table. 

     
    In order to be the best instrument of change in our businesses or crafts, and to have the influence we want in our lives, we have to build our strongest personal foundation from the inside out. On this episode of the “Creative in Business” podcast, guest Anese Cavanaugh talks about how self-care and “directed energy”, coupled with a connection to one’s intended impact and personal leadership are essential for us to be the absolute best instruments of change possible for the impact we want to create it the world.
     
    We discuss:
      1. The most powerful resources you have – immediately accessible – for effective connection and personal leadership. These are super powers – use them for good, not evil.  
      2. The simplest way to optimize your presence in the moment. 
      3. 3 things you can do right now to shift your energy, presence and influence (influence on others and yourself!)
      4. 3 things you can do tonight to “get in front of” yourself. 
      5. The 3 things you must do on a regular basis to stay grounded in your most powerful stance as a human being.

     

    Anese Cavanaugh is a mom, entrepreneur, blogger, speaker, and all-around leadership and collaboration expert. She’s considered a trusted advisor, teacher, and thinking partner to some of today’s most savvy business leaders and organizations like IDEO, Chevron, IBM, Cooper, Doorsteps, Citicorp, and others. Anese has been called a “game changer”, a “miracle worker”, and even “wonder woman” by clients.

    A noted writer and speaker, Anese has been seen in Shape Magazine, Prevention Magazine, the Miami Herald, Western Suburban, and TNG and on stages across the country.

  • Is Your LinkedIn Profile a Dud?

    LinkedIn ProfileLinkedIn is the new “Promenade” – the place to see and be seen – the place to cruise on a Saturday night for recognition.

    Join host Kelly Galea for this interview with Connie Hampton, who has been using and teaching others to use LinkedIn for professional networking purposes for as long as LinkedIn has been around.  Connie can help you get up to speed! She is a recruiter in the biosciences industry and teaches scientists and others how to strategically grow their networks for new jobs, new contacts and new opportunities.

    Things do keep changing with LinkedIn and many people have not kept up. Have you discovered endorsements? Do you know what your skills and expertise are? Do you want to be known for the ones you are getting endorsements for? Have you put on your best face? Do you have a complete profile? Are you following the people, companies, news and influencers you need to be known by? 

    A LinkedIn Profile is not a resume and is a place to show yourself to your best advantage, link to your career network, present your creations, talk with others in your niche or audience and get known without actually having to put on your shoes!

    Click on the Listen Now button below to discover Connie’s best tips. 

     

    Connie HamptonIn 1997, Connie Hampton founded Hampton & Associates because she saw a need for lower-cost, higher-quality executive searches that returned far more precise results — especially in biotechnology and life sciences.

    Connie is passionate about her work and brings specialized expertise to the research and interviewing process for each open position. Connie is a member of many biotech and pharmaceutical industry groups and is active in international recruiting groups. She has been a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Recruiters’ Association (BARA) since 1999.

    Connie enjoys coaching job-seekers who don’t match her clients’ needs — teaching them how to refine their own search process and move forward. In 2011 she started Network Polish Kit to help professionals in the biotech/biopharma world manage their careers and take the next step.

    Connie brings to her recruiting and coaching work a knowledge base from her time in a successful sales career in legal, paper and chemicals that dates from before her move to into executive search and research and her training at CTI in coaching.

    She also has raised 3 very competent children, an anthropologist, a physicist and one on her way to an MD. Connie herself graduated from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA, BA cum laude in religion.

  • Using Relational Healing to Thrive

    Using Relational Healing to ThriveJoin host Kelly Galea for this interview about Relating Authentically with Relational Expert & Spiritual Business Coach, Teresa Marinelli.

    “Invent your world. Surround yourself with people, color, sounds and work that nourish you.”
    ~ SARK

    We are born into this world through another. We are wholeheartedly connected. We instantly & instinctually begin to use our relationship to others; the people, places and things in our lives to learn, navigate & heal. It’s the process of relational transformation. One of the most natural processes in the world.

    And then something happens. Over time, mechanisms are put in place that block our ability to relate whole heartedly, to continue the transformation process. Instead, we begin to simply, endure.

     

    We forget who we really are.

    We doubt ourselves & become lost in the roles others want us to play, staying in jobs for the “paycheck” and delaying personal fulfillment.

    We protect ourselves through stories from the past, stalling our progress & our full creative expression.

    We surround ourselves with people & objects that keep us where we’ve been, not where we’d like to go, causing resentment to build.

    We disengage from our authentic selves, our real purpose & our true desires staying in “safe” relationships, preventing full engagement.

    We put great pressure on ourselves to achieve success according to other’s standards avoiding professional fulfillment & greater happiness.

     

    Feeling stressed is the norm. Feeling stuck, frustrated and confused overshadow feelings of joy & happiness more of the time. The sense that “something is missing” continues for years.

    Many people wait until the alarms are going off in their life & their business before taking action. It doesn’t have to be this way. There is an easier way.

    That way is through Relational Healing.

    Click on the Listen Now button below to discover the process of relational healing.

  • Career Reinvention: Find Your Inner Getaway Girl

    Career ReinventionInterview with Casey Wohl 3/20/13

    What is Career Reinvention and how can you achieve it? On this episode of the “From Corporate to Creative” show, you’ll hear one story of how major personal and professional life changes led Casey Wohl, The Getaway Girl®, from depression to discovering an unfilled niche in the travel industry. She not only reinvented her career, but also developed a new, nationally-recognized travel brand that has led to national TV, radio, magazine and online appearances.

     

    What if both your personal and professional lives were both turned upside down in just a few months? What would you do? How would you cope? For Casey Wohl, The Getaway Girl®, the best therapy was to combine her two passions: travel and her girlfriends. During her travels, she found an exciting, unfilled niche in the travel industry as no one was writing city-specific travel guides for women. Casey thought she could help fill that niche and check off an item on her bucket list of writing a book. After forming Gray Dog Publishing, she wrote and published her first book, the Girls Getaway Guide to Orlando: Leave Your Baggage at Home®. Two months after it was published, Barnes & Noble called her requesting copies of the book for their stores. And the rest is history…

    Listen to this episode now and find your inner getaway girl (or guy!).

  • The Wake-Up Call: A Midlife Career Woman’s Search for Significance

    Interview with Evelyn Kalinosky 2/20/13

    There’s a voice inside that keeps trying to work its way to the surface. On this episode of the “From Corporate to Creative” show, we talk about that voice and the wake-up call, with guest Evelyn Kalinosky. Evelyn is a midlife mentor for business women who has been there in her own journey and turned her life into the legacy she will leave behind her.

    Does this sound like you?  

    • You’re a high-achieving, soulful businesswoman in midlife.
    • You are goal-driven. Adventurous.
    • You’re financially successful but feeling emotionally bankrupt.
    • Your creativity wants to be reclaimed.
    • You see opportunity to transform, but you’re stretched too thin to take it.
    • You feel like you are free falling.
    • You work yourself to exhaustion. And so, a little fun would appeal.
    • You’re the successful caretaker–at work, at home–but you get pushback when you do something to take care of yourself.
    • You’re a woman who notices what you won’t have if you never leap, and what’s missing since crisis hit.
    • You’re ready to make your crisis an awakening.
    • You’re ready to accomplish the life calling you’ve kept on the back-burner.
    • You refuse to give up what’s important to you anymore. 

     

    Our lives have a way of calling us to what they want to be, and never more so than when we reach midlife. When we ignore the calling, when we focus all of our sacred potential on the lives we made ourselves fit into in order to achieve in high performance careers, we risk facing a wake-up call that looks like crisis. 

    The wake-up call. It’s the voice of your inner purpose that can no longer wait to be noticed. Your spirit’s evolution that needs attention at last.

    What’s the benefit of answering the voice? Your happiness as you define the next stage of your life and your success. The fulfillment of living your life’s purpose, and letting yourself live out that deeply-held dream.

     

    Evelyn Kalinosky is a certified coach and author of more than two dozen books and audio programs including the book “From Breakdown to Breakthrough: Seven Women Executives Share Their Turning Points”, and she is currently writing a book on career women navigating through midlife.

    She was named “1 of 101 Women Bloggers to Watch in 2011” by WE Magazine for Women, a “Fabulous 50 Top Blogger” by Boomer Diva Nation, and winner of “Best Coaching Blogs 2011 and 2012” by School of Coaching Mastery.

    In addition to being a coach, Evelyn is a speaker and poet.

  • 4 Marketing Myths That Zap Away Trust

    Marketing MythsInterview with Kristen Beireis 1/9/13 

    Host Kelly Galea interviews guest Kristen Beireis for this episode where you’ll discover how marketing myths could be zapping crucial trust right out of your business. 

    It’s overwhelming trying to figure out what marketing strategies to learn and then put them into practice.  It’s difficult to figure out how to talk about your business, let alone put out a newsletter, blog, ad campaign or other marketing.  How in the world are you supposed to do this?  How many marketing gurus do you have to hire to get it right? 

    What you may not know is that the overwhelm comes from a trust issue.  As you know, people won’t buy from you unless they know, like and “TRUST” you. There are critical, hidden places where you may not be trusting yourself.  You have to trust yourself before others are going to trust you.  Then you have to make sure your marketing is constantly building trust, not breaking it down.  When the trust breaks down, you miss out on your true potential for bringing clients into your business. 

    How do you increase your trust factor?  Find out on this episode about the 4 Myths That Zap Away Trust with Trust-Building In Marketing Expert Kristen Beireis.  Here’s what we’ll cover:

    • What you’re missing out on that could boost your marketing results
    • A Magical Marketing Myth that could be making you miserable
    • A way to enjoy the process of reaching your dream instead of struggling to get there
    • One thing you can do now to help improve your conversion when you talk about your business
    • How to create more referrals by shifting your niche

    …and yes, all of this has to do with trust-building in marketing. 

     

    Kristen Beireis is the Trust-Building in Marketing Expert. Since her teen years, Kristen has had a knack for focusing on what she wants for herself and making it happen, no matter what those around her say is possible. She totally understands the power of living authentically and getting your best message out in the world in a way that will attract the right customers and repel the wrong ones. Over the years she has combined all her talents to help people make more money in a way that serves them.
